Harv,

>>> This by itself doesn't make you a realist or anti-realist.>It's very simple, what makes something true?>How do you know that your sense impressions are correct? >Are you saying that other models couldn't possibly be developed besides your model? How then can you say reality is 'this' when your model is saying that 'this' can be modeled using your model? >>where there's a room full of numbers and our room is in that universe?> Newton was representing reality. He knew full well that there was something 'more' to reality than his calculus. He believed that God was a mathematician that somehow created the world in an orderly fashion. I don't think this is your view.
