As you have avered to be a materialist, you should ask yourself. :wink:
Naah. You're just a bunch of wetware pretending to be a self-contradicting solipicst. :D
"Perceived wetware" to be more precise. Better yet, the understood-as-interactions ongoing between a large number of em fields. Gravity & sub-atomics may play some little understood part in this scenario as it effects and/or affects "us".

Note that Reality being The Solipsist is a possibility for idealists.
The most important things in life–beauty, grace, redemption, compassion, loyalty, love–are beyond the reach of reason. Which doesn’t make them any less real. Stay far back: I'm allergic to Stupid.

The simple rule, the greatest plan, that he should keep who has the power, and he should take who can.

Naah. Just wetware creating the idea that it's perceived wetware instead of just wetware. :D

(Please, Mr. Hammegk, I'm not being particularly serious at this point, we can't test the differences here.)
