Many Have Asked

What is the nature of reality? It’s a question that many have asked and that many, many more have thought to answer.

If Obama gave a speech in a forest and there was no-one to hear him would he still lie
Would He Still Lie?

The Bishop of Cloyne, George Berkeley asked this, as did William Fossett. So too did Albert Einstein, Charles Riborg Mann, and George Ransom Twiss. Indeed, throughout the modern age the question has been posed in publications as diverse as The Chautauquan and Scientific American.

    Now, now; that ignores the question of whether anything exists, or exists in the same manner, without and audience. It also ignores the fact that we don’t know if Obama believes the world exists except when he observes it. πŸ˜†

    Still, you’re probably right. I don’t think that the boy could speak the truth even if you put a gun to his head (pleasant picture that).
