Materialism, Idealism and Dualism
A comic describing the difference between all three types of realities.
Who would have thought that Shrek movie marathon could turn into a debate on the nature of reality...
It fell just like that...
What was that!
Must have been a draft of wind...
No way... A draft indoors? Makes no sense. Maybe it's supernatural...
You mean ghosts? No way. That's not realistic. You can't see, hear or touch ghost so how can it be real? Reality is determined by physical presence. A breeze makes more sense since I felt one. Maybe someone left the window open?
All the windows are closed so there is no way it was a breeze from outside. Reality isn't defined by physical properties. Reality in itself is an idea created by a higher power which means that the idea of ghosts is completely realistic. You can't explain everything using physical properties.
What if reality is both materialistic and idealistic? The fact that we felt the breeze when the vase fell means this entity has a physical feature and the fact that the idea of ghosts exists fullfills both materialism and idealism making it realistic on both ends. So dualist!
All I wanted was to finish my Shrek marathon man..
