Metaphysical solipsism is hilarious: here is this idiot trying to convince us that he isn't real. And Kant and Russell and Buddhists (who also aren't real) agree with him.
You are the ignorant idiot who do not know what you are talking about and constructing strawman all over the place.
Where did I claim the above?
I have always stated whatever is empirical is real within the empirical context.
Therefore me and all humans are empirically real.
This is in line with Kant's view of an empirical realist.
- .. an Empirical Realist, and allows to Matter, as Appearance, a Reality which does not permit of being inferred, but is Immediately Perceived.
Thus External Things exist as well as I myself, and both, indeed, upon the immediate witness of my Self-Consciousness.
Kant claim your type is a Transcendental Realist, where reality is not immediately realized but inferred from the waves and sense-data within your brain/mind and never realizing the real thing.
You are a transcendental realist because your reality is only realize in your mind/brain.
- Transcendental Realism, on the other hand, inevitably falls into difficulties, and finds itself obliged to give way to Empirical Idealism, in that it regards the Objects of Outer Sense as something distinct from the Senses themselves, treating mere Appearances as Self-Subsistent Beings, existing outside us.
You think you are interacting with the real thing, but in fact you are only dealing with external-waves and appearance in your brain/mind.
In addition, what is interacted in your brain/mind is upside down and the brain has to realigned it thus reducing its fidelity.
