Reality and Consciousness
Describe the universe which exists beyond what you are conscious of.
That's because you have to be conscious of something in order to verify whether it exist. There is actually no evidence that reality even exists beyond that which we are conscious.
If I were to suppose that there existed a vast, objective universe out there somewhere beyond what I am conscious of, I would also have to suppose that there existed an immense consciousness out there to verify the totality of that universe, because there is no evidence that reality even exists beyond consciousness.
To summerize: There is no evidence of reality existing beyond that which we are conscious. Therefore, the supposition of a greater universe beyond that which we are conscious is also the supposition that there is a greater consciousness out there to verify it for us.
