Even a real solipsist might eat, sleep, talk to people etc., all under the impression that everything is a
construction of his own mind. People willingly suspend disbelief in order to indulge in fiction or computer
games, and a solipsist may believe that he is participating in the greatest and most perfect of games. I
think that most real solipsists would eventually go mad and start to believe that the game is reality. Maybe
that's why there aren't that many of them around.
