Forget Berkeley and forget god (the theological invention); they're dead--and as far as I'm concerned irrelevant to the living issue of what is this that we are experiencing now?
Gregoryl asks: "Does Berkeley mean that there are no mind independent objects?" All objects are IN A SENSE mind independent--i.e., they are not JUST fabrics of my imagination--and they are all IN A SENSE mind dependent--i.e, their empirical character (e.g., forms, configurations, shapes) cannot exist AS SUCH without being perceived AS SUCH (consider visions without eyes or sounds without ears. On the other hand, consider the sound of falling trees without the existence of falling trees--aside from illulsions of "sound effects").
The middle way (both-and rather than either-or) is more inelegant than that of taking one side or the other (e.g. materialism vs idealism, monism vs. pluralism) but it is more realistic.
