Is There An Objective Reality

The foundation of  reasoning is based on the postulated assumption that there is existence outside the mind that is independent of the mind for its existence. I agree. God. Whatever God is, God exists out side the mind and causes the mind to come into existence as a sequence of perceptions in a field of cross references, associations and patterns that become sensations cross referenced again spatially and temporally, becoming the conscious mind. The development of the mind can be likened to a growing sphere which contains ever more complex extrapolations based on an ever growing archive which is continually cross referenced causing ever greater sophistication and intricacy. All the growing dynamic cross referenced relationships in the mind are founded on logic and mathematics. Because of this communication is possible between minds.

From this one might assume that mathematics, as the quality common to all minds, logic- that describes that portion of the mind most of us have the potential to share, is the basis for the objective reality you found your reasoning on.

objective :(of a person or their judgment) not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts.

The key word here is "facts". This word brings us back to Descartes. It is a fact that we all have minds because we all think and our thinking is governed by the logic of linguistics and math. This is true I assume for a dog, too. The difference being that the human mind has a dimension of linguistic agility that allows for a degree of abstract symbolization that has a metaphysical nature. By manipulating symbols that represent shared realities, according to mathematical reasoning, it becomes possible to predict the behavior of the shared realities and shape their structure. Man can carve rock out of mountains and make stone buildings to live in. His mind has gained an aspect of being able to create and destroy the shared reality. Just as his own mind is the product of influences beyond his control in a series of comings together and falling apart, just as man's mind coalesces and grows and then with age, dissipates and dissolves as the effect of unknown causes, so man causes the common world, that of the mind which is shared by most, to come together in new ways and he demonstrates an ever growing ability to manipulate that which exists in the mind and is common to all living things.

But things have the appearance that the substance of the common mind started before the appearance of an individual man's mind. Our mind comes to be in a world which appears to have existed before us. People die and the world goes on. We assume it will continue after we die. Here again, I say that which predates the mind of man, exists beyond the borders of potential perception spatially and temporally, and continues after the mind dissipates back into the oblivion from which it emerges, is cause over the mind and is the mind's creator, God.

The mind is designed and the mind designs, intelligently. However, That which designs the mind, exists beyond the mathematics and logic and shared realities of the mind. That which creates the mind is not subject to the laws that govern the mind.

All the math and logic in the mind of man cannot predict how a quantum particle will behave except as a potential manifestation registered in man's mind once he looks at it a certain way. If he looks at it differently, he will see something else. On the other hand, enormous collections of the same kind of particles so uncertain in their behavior, particles that can potentially appear on either end of the universe if looked for there, behave en masse as planets and stars in ways that are perfectly predictable on a certain scale of observation using math. However, the same conglomerates of mass, demonstrate completely unpredictable behavior on the scale of galaxies.

Math no longer can be used to predict what is going to happen on very large scales and very small scales. Things happen outside the realms of logic. Some creative force holds the universe together and makes it expand at the same time, in ways completely foreign to the workings of man's mind. Time and space only apply to the workings of the mind and that which is in it, and don't apply to the creator of the mind, or even that part of the mind held in common, your "objective reality".

Modern science says there is no knowable objective reality.

"The world presented to us by our perceptions is nothing like reality. What’s more, he says, we have evolution itself to thank for this magnificent illusion, as it maximizes evolutionary fitness by driving truth to extinction."
"“Useful as it is under ordinary circumstances to say that the world exists ‘out there’ independent of us, that view can no longer be upheld.”
 Is there an Objective Reality?
God rules supreme because God causes the wave functions to collapse in the sequence they do, creating the narrative in our minds that becomes our life story.

A Catastrophic Tragedy. Maybe Not!
