What is the difference between an optimist and a pessimist?
An optimist the glass is always half full but with a pessimist it is always half empty.

Thank goodness Commander Data is not here. He will be going on about it for hours, discussing different alien races concepts of what is half full or half empty ie Star trk Next Generation when he discussed at great length to Lwaxana Trois & Captain Jean-Luc Picard different ways alien races pre-meal rituals.

BTW I am now a member of the Philosopher's Guild?

'To be is to be perceived.' Berkeley, in his Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge (1710), asserts (para. 3) of 'unthinking things' that 'their esse is percipi, nor is it possible they should have any existence, out of the minds or thinking things which perceive them'-on the ground that unthinking things, 'sensible objects', are 'ideas or sensations'. Note that he affirms this only of 'unthinking' things.
