It only goes on forever angryy, if you can make sense any part of the scenario occurring “outside” perceptual conditions. If no one is around who is there to make meaning of the event?

God is in the quad, eh? That’s Berkeley’s Idealism. But if things are there in the mind of god vs there’s are just there, what is the difference between the two aside from the “invisible” contribution made by interpreting things as god’s ideas? The latter is an article of faith only. Or is there more?

I feel that regardless of the presence of anybody, when a tree falls, it falls. This is because looking at the Traditional definition of knowledge, the truth-condition is considered an objective condition. Thus, regardless of the presence of a perceiver, what is, is.
