Default Re: Nothing Exists

My question into this isn't "are you right, does anything really exist?" but rather, "why does it matter?"

Even if the universe doesn't exist beyond our perceptions, what we perceive is still enjoyable. It's still life as we know it, and it's generally pretty good for most of us. So what does this whole question of nihilism or solipsism or whatever matter? We can't move beyond it, we can't prove it, and there's no real need to do either.

Basically, I take the same opinion as I would if Morpheus approached me and offered to get me out of the Matrix. Life's fairly nice for most people, and what you're offering isn't necessarily better, and has a fair chance of being worse (guess what: it was.) So therefore, who cares?
