Something which is (Bronk)

The world or what we term the world, that medium in which we find ourselves, and indeed whatever of it we set apart and term selves, is not related to what we make of it and not dependent on what we make of the world or make of ourselves. It is not in the least altered, nor is our basic nature altered, by any cosmology or culture or individual character we may devise, or by the failure or destruction of any of these, as all of them fail. If they seem for a time to suceed, they blind us as though they were real; and it is by our most drastic failures that we may perhaps catch glimpses of something real, of something which is.

William Bronk, from "Copan: Historicity Gone"
