ABSTRACT
This article discusses one of the basic questions of metaphysics, namely, the reality of the matter. Idealism in philosophy claims that the ego or the self is the real thing in this world, things or objects have mental qualities or just ideas inside the human mind. In nuclear physics, the quantum theory has tried to solve this question in its particlewave theory, in the sense that, the electron behaves either as a particle or as a wave according to the human observability of the process. This shows the effect of the will exerted on matter. Sometimes we find an experience of unification between the self and the object or the world in the mystics' records which denote the ghostly distinction between the self and the world. Magicians believe that things are illusions, and man can create whatever he wants by the power of the will and imagination. PK experiments also prove the subjection of the matter to the mind and it even dissolves to lose its own entity. This leads us to the old concept of the macrocosm and the microcosm. These different fields of knowledge all agree upon the validity of idealism as a way to interpret the world.
