We can easily measure it, and there are many scientific instruments dedicated to measuring it. It can also be deduced to exist logically, and we routinely see evidence of its existence.

YES everything exists with or without humans observing and how do I know? Because I have been to a funeral and had pets grow old and eventually die, and even after they go, everything continues without them. This is how I know it's not just a figment of their mind or everything would disappear when someone dies. So, therefore, it must not be just a figment of my mind, either. However, my perception might influence how the hamster looks. To an ant, the same hamster would seem like a dinosaur but to me, it's merely a mouse. And to that same ant, the human is a mountain!

But Ana this kind of thinking would quickly do philosophers out of a job if it took hold. Its too much like common sense.

Hamsters used to exist but have now retired.

I laughed when I heard it! I took a look at the other Hampster dances. Too cute!
