Document Summary

You have an indirect experience with what we see mind creates mental representations. If there"s someone filtering our experiences, then we"re in a cartesian theater. There is an actual self having these experiences. If we do indirectly experience things, then there has to be something filtering it. We have no reason for believing that the external world exists. Objects only exist when they are perceived. There is no real world outside of the cartesian theater. To exist is to be perceived" - bishop berkeley. Solipsism idea that only you and your mind exist everything else is an extension of your mind. Physical objects must exist for us to have experiences of them. We only have access to sense experience, not the external world. Objects continue to exist as possible experiences even though they are not being perceived. The causes of our sense experience are physical objects that exist in the external world. Our senses help us navigate the environment.
