So sorry to hear that you don't exist. I didn't used to exist either, you know, but as far as I can tell I am in existence now. However, one thing troubles me and it is that you say the rest of the universe observes you as they think you are existing. Does this mean people could have conflicting ideas over how you look or talk etc?

I'm sort of the asverage of what everyone thinks. If anyone measures something about me-they'll all get the same answer. However, I will look different to different people.
For example A might think I was very tall and B might think I was very short. Boith would be surprised to find out that I am 5 feet, 10 inches (1778 mm for those of you in the civilized world that uses metric) tall.

What about this idea: A might think you're tall, and she might say this to B. But B might see you as short, so even if A says: "That person is tall", B might think that she actually said: "That person is short", which is in-keeping with his personal view.
Just a thought.

Interesting idea. That may have to become a school of thought within Inverted Solpsism.
