Do you really believe that there is no existence beyond, outside of , above or beneath(choose the metaphor) our perceptions? If so, what is it outside of our eyes and nervous systems that causes us to see?
I hold that there is continual input from the outside environment even though we can never know what the outside environment is like apart from perceptions of it.

= series of events, right we can agree on this?
we have no way to accurately measure time because we can't see all events right?
events happen because of other events happening, not because of time right?

The cold weather causes me to dress up properly before exiting the door. I have not experienced the cold weather yet, but I dress up because I don't want to freeze. In this example, the causing event becomes ambigous.
