Things that Exist

The existence of “things that exist” is not contigent upon whether or not
their existence can be proven.


Therefore the “proof” of the existence of the physical object is utterly
disconnected from its potential impact on your perception or ability to
perceive – leaving you with only your perception (and no proof) as a gauge
of ‘isness’. Our perception tells us “these things exist”, but how do we
know it’s correct? As you’ve noted, we cannot. So we have that proof is a
fantasy and “tentative knowledge” is close to the “isness” as our minds can
get. I think this is a fundamentally requisite acknowledgement given the
nature of the relationship of a point of view to its environment. Perhaps
it is the very establishement of a point of view (and thus its definition)
that is the essense of this limitation on knowledge as when one defines a
point, we define that a circle could encompass that point and from the
perspective of that point (you can’t disprove that the incoming information
about your environment has not been manipulated). In our case, we are the
point and did not choose to establish it. It was established for us
(birth).

Perception is the boundary of self and knowledge. You are a tautology
established by nature – a perpetual/instantaneous redefinition.of yourself,
made up by youself.


“I think therefore I am” is a statement of faith. It says “I believe it is
reasonable to assume I exist.” It is necessarily valid, or “reason” has no
foundation.


“I have faith in reason” should be the fountainhead of both reason and
spirituality. It is a path to unity that minimizes divergence to
perception, rather than potentially unreasonable conclusions drawn from
those perceptions.
