the main reason why i might think it is is this:
the only thing that is self evident is the self (and its perceptions of course)
these things we can perceive directly, ie there is no doubt that they exist.
now it seems to me that existence=direct perception (=self evidence)
it seems that just like you're certain these things exist you should be certain nothing else does.
anyone else think this way or are you non solipsist?

I think you're problem is in red.

Nothing... doesn't exist. Everything that is not "nothing" exists.

I am not a solipsist.

I agree that existence is self-evident.
