    "Each of us is left to critically review our thought processes and our experiences in order to determine what is true and what is belief. However, evidence does not have to be verifiable by another in order for it to qualify as evidence to us. It has to be verifiable to the individual. My inability to accept your testimony does not necessarily negate the truth of your experience. It simply means I will see your words as fiction, not fact."

      The answer can be yes or no...

      Simply because it is dependant on "human perception" and what is perceived as this "human perception".

      Reality as we know it cannot be discussed outside of human perception.
      So the nature of Reality that is being discussed, takes it form according to the perception of those discussing it.

      Reality has  a form that can be described as "General", it is so because it is an agreement of individual perspectives.... For example the shade of the clear sky is accepted as the description blue..

      And then reality also has a "individual" form, This is the unique perspective of an individual, which by definitive reasons, acceptable to himself only can choose to accept the clear open sky as the description red.

      So we see reality changes according to perspectives.... so we can conclude that reality actually is the particular perspective.
      So then...YES... reality is dependant on the human perception.

      Now the thing about human perspective, is that it is incomplete ( or we may say flawed in the human way of speaking)....
      And just as perspectives are incomplete/flawed, it is mirrored in our reality, Thus Our reality is incomplete/flawed.

      And the ultimate proof of this incompleteness, is realised, in the fact that that individual perception of reality ceases to be in that individual's death. And the death of a person, would also mean reality for that one ceases .

      But there is a reality which is not flawed / incomplete.....
      And it is possible for the human individual perception, to harness this reality....
      and wheh that individual's perception harnesses this reality,  His perception ceases to be flawed /incomplete, but is exactly the same as that reality which is Complete / Perfect.

      Now that one with perfect perception, though he attained it as a human, has move to the state beyond human,,in that he us no longer subjected to loss of perception/reality which is known as death.

      And it that context we can conclude that, Reality Do exist independent of human perception.

      For the "human perception" is imperfect reality..

      And the "perfect reality" though attained as a human,
      His "perfect perception" makes him more than human,
      which exist as " Perfect Reality" which is also beyond human.

        Reality and what it exhibits can be observed by humans without any real problems. We have discovered a great deal about the world we live in through our observations. This is not a problem.

        That makes absolutely no sense at all, why would anyone say the sky is red when it's obviously blue?

        No, it does not change due to our perspective, that is nonsense.

        That is entirely false and you have only provided false premises for your argument.

        Please define "incomplete and flawed" because that makes no sense at all.

        The only flawed perspective is the one that adds or subtracts to reality.

        Nonsensical gibberish.

          I think it is silly responding to obvious nonsense...

          But then again that would require some thought to find out....

            Sorry, you're right, it was very obvious. I'll try to respond to just the questionable nonsense, instead.

              So you do go around comtemplating and questioning nonsense.....hmmm?

              Why would you do that?
              isn't nonsense, what it is?....... nonsense

              Don't you Think (if I may persuade you to indulge ), then such behaviour  then gives  validity to the nonsense...

    Of course.  No single individual's perception of reality defines reality and even the perception of the entire human race does not do so.

    Fifty years ago the perception was that the bottom of the food chain all over earth was sunlight.  At the very root, sunlight was necessary for life whether it be a plant utilizing it to grow or a herbivore eating that plant or a carnivore eating the herbivore.  That perceived reality has changed with the discovery of deep ocean life living and growing around volcanic vents, using the energy and noxious chemicals of the fumarole for food.  Our perception did NOT define reality.

    A thousand years ago the perception was that the earth was flat and the sun and moon revolved around it.  Again, the perception of every living person did NOT define reality.

    "Does Reality exist as Independent of Human Perception?"

    I would have to say no. Reality is real however reality may not be the same for each individual. A person who is in prison experience is a reality different from those who are not in prison.

    The dictionary isolates reality with the perspective that ideas are different from reality this causes me to wonder if the person sleeping not perceiving what they believed to be reality by the movements of their bodies while they are sleeping?
