Iuno, it seems simple to just say we define the universe in a way that is useful to us, and that's it. Anything authoritative requires proof of the authority. As far as I know, there's is no authority. Just our useful but arbitrary definitions... Simple. Thinking of trogs or incars is absurd because it has no use for us. If it did, then it wouldn't be absurd anymore.

Kinda reminds me of henri bergson's metaphor for time being the duration it takes a sugar cube to melt vs Einstein saying time is what a clock measures. He's credited with coming up with the concept of duration.

I'm an ontological antirealist. Or am I a person? Or am I a jersey devil with internet access? Or am I my consciousness? What you describe as "Ontological Antirealism" I describe, as the universal truth. The greatest illusion in this world is that of seperation, All is One, One is All.

Too many labels/definitions for arbitrary things. Yeah, my left ear isn't connected to Big Ben or the Eiffel tower or someone's right testicle (at least I hope not). By defining something we give it a name we can refer to it by. If I eat 2/3 of a hamburger, do I still have a hamburger?

In my opinion, it's all just semantics. Philosophy really does come down to how language has evolved. I'm sure you can tell that I have no education in philosophy but I rolled my eyes at nearly this entire video because the way he phrased things at the start was clearly scripted unintelligibly to re-explain them later more intelligibly and that sort of sums up my point. You could argue philosophy for ten thousand years but you'll only get as certain as the language allows.
