Tentative refutation of mind-dependent reality
The basis for reality must be something that is self-existent. Something self-existent must be absolutely simple (not made of component parts)(see "Reincarnation" below). It must not have, in its original state, been the product of something else. This is essence (spirit), not consciousness, since consciousness is (originally at least) the product of the brain and is not absolutely simple.
