A thread asking about absolute reality was closed. Considering a post about telepathy & some other strange notions, there was reason to close the thread, but I would not have done so if I were a moderator. I consider the following to be a very cogent argement in favor of an absolute reality. Think about the POV of a very large number of people generally considered to be sane & intelligent. There are many different opinions relating to religion, politics, emotions, & even modern physics. However, on many issues relating to the enviroment, there is a large amount of agreement. Gravity is an accepted phenomenom. The cycles of day & night are perceived similarly by almost everyone. Except for color blind people, almost all agree relating to many colors: Red, green, blue, yellow. The disagreements relate to some subtle shades. I am sure that there are many more facts about the environment on which an overwhelming majority agree. The agreement of many people relating to facts about our environment strongly supports the notion of an absolute realtiy.
