But how could one know if the others are telling the truth ?

Umm, I only assume the barest appearance of interactions. All of this is fully consistent with Leibniz' monadology. Monads have no windows and do not exchange substances. All interactions are only mutual synchronizations of their percepts.

The surest test could only be a Turing Test.

    I am not sure how that is related...

Plus I have another difficulty with solipsim. If perception
must proceed existence, then one could never be stabbed
in the back.

Existence must be primitive ontologically, or else how are properties to be extracted from it by perception? There are no knives (or spoons), only phenomena of mutual agreements.

    How is the agreement of many minds known if they are all
    solipsists ?

    Hi Roger,

        The agreement is known by the appearance of a common world. It
    is the manifestation of their "mutual truth".
