Normally ? as in a centre point of a Bell curve, when people say "reality"?
"They imagine it to be...,.". Do They? I don't, and I'm normal, in my reality.
Good thing I'm not one of 'they' then. I'm just one of me. :)
Maybe i sure be more precise. i am really taking about philosophers, and philosophers of science. They have this conception of reality as being something objective, external, and mind-independent.
I think i am againist the conception of reality( stated above). The traditional notion of a statement being true is seen as a mapping( correspondence) between the statement, and the reality(world). There is a correspondence( mapping) of a internal world( private thoughts) of statement and external world( public thoughts) of facts. I say the external world itself is a conception/story that members of the same linquistic community have. That such mappings is wrong. That all there is is language, and how language is used within the linquistic community. When we make claims of the external world, we are really making a story using words we know within the linquistic community. Even the world itself is word that fits in with some stardard conventions share by a common linquistic community.Why, if I may ask, are you against the concept that reality will vanish if you are not in it.
Does reality require a mind or a human to be?
