My sack is quite empty. I will never dip my hand into nature's full sack of illusions; I am tired of that old conjuring bag" (VP1 1154-55). "9 Yeats offered another variation on this theme to T. S. Moore: "We free ourselves from obsession that we may be nothing. The last kiss is given to the void" (TSML 154). Martin Hearne in The Unicorn from the Stars, a reworking, with considerable help from Lady Gregory, of Where There is Nothing, reaches a similar conclusion at the end of that play: We must put out the whole world as I put out this candle [puts out another candle].

As Yeats understood it, realists believe that the external world is objective, and therefore permanent, while idealists believe that it is subjective, and therefore only exists or seems to exist while it is being perceived. The difficulty facing the idealists is how to explain the fact that much of this external world can be proven to remain the same no matter when or by whom it is perceived.
