Model dependent realism

According to the idea of model dependent realism, our brains interpret the input from our sensory organs by making a model of the outside world. We form mental concepts of our homes, trees, other people, the electricity that flows from wall sockets, atoms, molecules, and other universes. These mental concepts are the only reality we can know. There is no model independent test of reality. it follows that a well constructed model creates ( invents) a reality of its own.
“The Grand Design” Stephen Hawking & Leonard Mlodinow
