Hi Somebody on this list asked whether I thought the physical world to be real while the nonphysical isn't, but my email program seems to have eaten his email.
The answer is that it all depends on how you look at the world. Idealists believe that only ideas are real, while the material world is phenomenal. Not a delusion. Plato, Leibniz and Kant belonged to this faction. The reason given by Leibniz is that Ideal world is given by an infinite number of persistent although changing point ideas called monads. Monads can change, but cannot either be created or destroyed. But at the root of the physical world you have quantum uncertainty such as Heisenberg showed, which made Leibniz believe that only the monads are real. By real he meant persistent.
