    George Berkeley's motto "esse est percipi" translated to "to be is to be perceived".
    George Berkeley is known for his theory of immaterialism. The theory is that objects only exsist as perception and not as matter. Individuals can only directly know sensations and ideas not the objects themselves. It was his belief that physical objects only exsist if they are perceived by the mind of the individual, anything outside the mind is unjustified. In Berkeley's mind when you don't see something it isn't there.
