No Berkeley believed that a belief that something exists is justified if and only if the object at issue can be perceived by someone or something and if so then the object must be just a collection of ideas ideas that we all collectively perceive to be true and real Therefore we must accept the fact that there are no material objects and just a collection of ideas which made Berkeley an immaterialist According to Berkeley only ideas that we perceive directly are real Berkeley maintained that objects exist only in the minds of those that perceive them His main point was that objects cannot exist without being perceived but he did not suppose he was the only perceiver He believed that as long as some thinking being perceives an object it truly does exist Therefore if I am staring at a tree and decide to close my eyes although I no longer see the tree it continues to exist so long as someone else is perceiving it Something that is imaginary exists in one persons mind alone and continues to exist only if the person continues to thinks of it But if something exists in many minds it can continue to exist whether I perceive it or not However once nobody perceives the idea of an objects existence the object ceases to exist
