How far can scepticism go? Seems to me that a proper sceptic should have doubts about all ideas, beliefs etc, not just some. So how about doubting the big one, the T Rex in the room, the physical world? If you see something, e.g. a tree, you're not seeing a tree but the mind's reconstruction of a tree. I think no way to prove there's a physical tree out there. Same for all physical things, so the conclusion is that the world is mental, not physical. So why should a man not walk through a wall, or a dog not turn into green mist? Fortean stuff is only to be expected!
