I just find it difficult to argue with you when it feels like you're not trying to make a point.

~~"All I did was show that your definitions are not consistent with common usage."~~

I didn't come up with a definition, I just drew a correlation between the terms "physical" and "existent" without bothering to define them... I simply see them as being quite nearly synonyms.

Hallucinations and poverty? They *exist* to the extent that they are concepts that our minds have descriptions for, and they *exist* to the extent that they have their foundations rooted in physicality, and they *exist* to the extent that our minds exist, yes. I'm not a dualist.
