solipsism, in philosophy, an extreme form of subjective idealism that denies that the human mind has any valid ground for believing in the existence of anything but itself.

And it's probably true.

    If there's "one mind" it absolutely has different vectors you could call human beings, and you're one of those.

      to be honest information about this is the main reason I come to this board in the first place because it's been helping me work through all the creepy shit that I've realized over time from consuming irrational amounts of psilocybin and dextromethorphan

        There is epistemological solipsism which is what you are describing and there is metaphysical solipsism which a form of subjective idealism. They are not the same. One is a kind of skepticism, the other is a kind of belief. The later also has a lot of variants. It's what you mainly see in this board.
        The epistemological version is true unless you can somehow prove anything outside your own mind. And you probably can't.

        You are not going to get much "information" from a bunch of internet morons. Read this:

        Loneliness is an abstraction of the truth, no one is alone. They're currently unforthcoming. This "God" is the most forthcoming and thus his presence is felt everywhere.

        yeah still solipsism is moronic, you will die

        the only one that should worry with solipsism is Lucifer, and well God, but God has no ego to be solipsist, only Satan is vulnerable to that

    Is there an opposite of solipsism in which we are all the same mind experiencing reality together but through different viewpoints?

      This is close to omnicentric holism. Some like Brook Ziporyn claim that Tiantai Buddhist philosophy as found in Tiantai/Tendai and Pure Land traditions is an example of this view. Each view creates each other view but there is no single view that grounds everything. Each perspective basically needs every other perspective to exist and therefore there are no individual perspectives in reality but neither are the a single view.

      Loneliness is an abstraction of the truth, no one is alone. They're currently unforthcoming. This "God" is the most forthcoming and thus his presence is felt everywhere.

      Generally, metaphysical solipism is seen as internally incoherent. P.F Strawson and Wittgenstein for example have many famous arguments against it. Generally, some mistake substance monism for this view some times, specifically claims that reality is only a mental essence or substance.

    Sure but what is "mind" here exactly, ego or consciousness, or a conflation of both?

    this reminds me of something i’ve been wondering about. why do so many delusions revolve around solipsism or thinking you’re god? or that they’re being followed by shadow people? why is it that when the mind breaks the first thing many people go to is such an egocentric place? it’s always memememe

    Being unable to get past the problem of a solipsistic reality is always correlated to an internally inconsistent epistemology. It is impossible to engage in a good faith discussion of ideas if you are unwilling to entertain the possibility that you are wrong, and the immediate result of engaging with other ideas with even a basic level of humility will begin to deconstruct a solipsistic mindset.
    The same problem is found in the theological realm, with proponents of the same perspective immediately coming to the 'realisation' that they are God.
    tl;dr get the frick over yourself

      I do not consciously know everything but maybe talking to you is actually talking to my subconscious.

    Solipsism is moronic so it's not surprising morons fall hard for it. They conflate too many things into that "me", when in reality the only "me" they're referring to is the sensate aggregate they identify with, something impermanent, constantly changing. And the ironic part is, that sensate aggregate is the one thing that's expressed through multiple conscious mediums (i'm talking about people and animals). So the one thing giving them main character/lone standing complex is the one thing out of all the equation that actually represents multiplicity.

    The whole idea is a cheap trap for people with individuality issues and low effort logical thinking, which are precisely the demographics for solipsism, scared, insecure zoomers.

    Solipsism kind of dies just like the idea of some spirit with the split brain experiments.
    When I can literally create another you and have both halves be unaware of the other, it says to me that there is no atomic self.
