If the other spirit in question is God, an omnipresent being, thenperhaps his perception can be used to guarantee a completelycontinuous existence to every physical object. In the ThreeDialogues, Berkeley very clearly invokes God in thiscontext. Interestingly, whereas in the Principles, as we haveseen above, he argued that God must exist in order to causeour ideas of sense, in the Dialogues (212, 214–5) he arguesthat our ideas must exist in God when not perceived by us.[] If our ideas exist in God, then they presumably existcontinuously. Indeed, they must exist continuously, since standardChristian doctrine dictates that God is unchanging.
