Reality is an illusion! Or is it?

"...Nothing is real unless it is observed ..." (Gribben, 1984, p3). Unless you view this blog, how can you be sure it and its content (assuming there is any) actually exist. And after you leave, what then is the reality of what you found here?

    which first…quantum physics…or philosophy.

    i like quatum physics!

    Without observation, i say that this blog is in a perpetual state of both exsistance and non-exsistance and it is only when i observe it does it become “quantum locked” in my reality as exsisting. This does not mean that it can’t exsist an alternate reality, but perhaps in an alternate reality it talks about fluffy pink clouds and linear perspective. An in a different reality all together, perhaps i’m the one writing the blog and you typing the responce..oh the possibilities!

    and philosophy….we as humans can never know things as they are, as nouminal objects. All our knowledge and conceptions are through experience of the phenomical objects. we as people cannot know how this blog is within itself in this world for we are only capable of looking at it with earth human eyes.

    I think, that I will no longer think, therefore i shall not exsist? I dont know i wanted to end on a witty note but im just slightly tired.

    But in this phenomenological world is not tiredness also an illusion brought on by imagining that the clock runs forwards and entropy obtains, and that assumes that time and energy are not, themselves, socially constructed.

    And if in stopping thinking (or should that be fatqueen) you blink out of existence and cease to be, are you still here within this blog? Were you ever here? Is the spoor that are the words an indication of a real externality or an external reality?

    Do you understand? I will take silence as affirmation. An interesting problem when asked of no-one about nothing, since I now know, by the silence that “he who does not exist” understands nothing.

    Twas brillig and the slithy toves …

    The sun was shining on the sea, shining with all his might.He did his very best to make the billows smooth and bright; and this was odd, because it was the middle of the night.

    The sun must be suspended while time moves onward. Is time socially constructed or is just the measurement of it? Since I’m a time traveler, I should probably know this stuff.

    I would respond, but I don’t exsist :( sad. I rather liked exsisting, but c’est la vie.

    The barman at the philosophers convention called time and asked Rene Descartes if he would like a last drink before the bar closed. “I think not” said Rene, and promptly disappeared.
