Solipsism and other theories

The Thinker Auguste Rodin

I wonder what kind of theories The Thinker came up with

Hello!!!! I know I haven’t posted for a long time and I didn’t have any interesting to post. So anyway I previously mentioned on my Bizarre Birthday Theories about the fact that our reality is just a figment of our imagination. Apparently there is an actual theory suggesting it called Solipsism! Just when I thought of something cool someone else has already thought of it. Anyway it is such a cool theory! I kind of believe it now!

So this blog is about the various theories people have come up to explain some stuff. The theories presented are the lesser known ones. I won’t be mentioning the 13th level theory nor the-brain-in-a-vat (more popular known as the Matrix theory) or the Multiverse theory.

A unnamed theory suggested up Plato and further developed up unknown people, is that we are merely shadows of a ‘perfect’ world. And just like us our shadows (the black thing following you in the sun) have a parallel world where they interact. This leads to the never ending line of parallel universes. The theory further goes on to explain that when we sleep our subconscious mind connects with the perfect world and that’s what are dreams are.

Next up is Presentism. Like the name, this theory is super weird. Basically it says that the past nor the future exist. Just the present. So basically anything you did ceased to exist after you do it. It is mind-fucking! Thinking about it makes your head feel weird. And just to mess with your head more, here are the words of the great scholar of Buddhism, Fyodor Shcherbatskoy: “Everything past is unreal, everything future is unreal, everything imagined, absent, mental . . . is unreal. . . . Ultimately real is only the present moment of physical efficiency.”

The last one on this blog is Phenomenalism. According to the Phenomenalists (they are so original), the world exist so long as you perceive it. That means that this blog that you are reading exists so long as you believe it does. So it means Phenomenalists exist so long as you think they do. Do you think they exist?
