I have said this before.
If you think life is just a dream, get a gun, load a round in the chamber, cock it, aim gun to your head (preferably brain), and pull the trigger.
You have nothing to lose, so reply after you have fired.
I never said I believe life is a dream. I'm not a solipsist.
I said that since everything can only be known through minds, then there must be an "eternal mind" that existed long before human minds. For if there was no mind before human minds, then nothing can be known about the external world because you need a mind to describe it. Only an eternal mind gets you out of this problem.
Nothing can be known without minds! So it's nonsensical to try and posit what existed without any minds around!
