a person can check by looking for him/herself. if i say "time is being", one can look at time and determine how accurate it is. perhaps a more insightful, intuitive understanding is possible than what i have given. determining if something exists or not is trickier. are physicists lost in fantasy when advocating string theory, or other theories that cannot be observed by sense? is mathematics a creation of the mind, or does it exist? what is the role of consciousness in the unfolding of physical reality? jury is out on this one for the time being
