Interpretation?

I disagree, I know as I'm writing this that the mug of tea to my right exists, even though I cant see it, I know it is there..
Your cup of tea is Plato's chair. You only perceive that cup of tea as a cup of tea because someone told you it was a cup of tea. The knowledge of its cup-of-teaness is completely oblivious to you outside its given label. All mass is, at its heart, apparition.

You believe it exists. And until you look at it... there is no proof that it exists beyond your belief.
The bacteria on its surface know it exists.

Finding pleasure from something is only electrical signals being interpreted by your brain. The single electron theory is true. So..."damn fine tasting" doesn't exist. What truly exists is a bump of an electrical field over which you have zero control.

I've changed my mind. I believe it is trapezoidal shaped after recent discoveries that I am going to keep to myself until I can get the proper patents. Do with this information what you will.

If the earth in indeed flat, then it is an alien megastructure as nature does not create in straight lines. Ever. Sacred geometry will always destroy such theories.

Also, let's try keeping the pooping in this thread to the minimum and try to stay on topic.

If the earth was flat, gravity would pull harder on you the closer to the edge of the disc you get. If traveling to the edge, you would eventually be pulled back toward the center.

If the earth was round we would fall off. The edge is the poles and nobody goes there.

its too cold.
