Is everything a figment of my/your imagination??? Try to visualize this. Let us say that every thought/thing/concept is represented by a black rock. So, for instance, a giraffe is represented by one black rock and atheism is represented by one black rock. The world is therefore full of millions and millions of black rocks. Now I ask you, grab the black rock that represents Solipsism!!.................you can't can you??? :) That rock is just a figment of your imagination......so solipsism, that black rock that you can not grab, can not be true because it does not exist. If every rock is a figment of your imagination, then the black rock that represents solipsism is also a figment of imagination. It contradicts it self...

It took me only a year to come to this conclsusion, give me another year and I will explain everything!!!!! :)

Any input is welcome..
