If we cannot currently see something, does it exist?

if something obstructs your view of something else, how are you sure that in that moment in time that the hidden object(s) exist(s) or not
Question asked by: anonymuss

Asked on: 03 Feb 2009

This is a philosophical question that many people do indeed debate about.

For some, if an object is observed by someone at a time then it does exist, even if that is not you. So if your friend is looking from the other side and still sees it then it does exist.

If it is blocked from both your views, then for many you can't say it does exist at that moment, but you may want to talk about the probability that it is there, or the probability wave of where that object is at that time.
