"I imagine you, otherwise you exist not and I'm just talking to myself, which I am also imagining. As a 'solipist' I belief life to be a dream. As a 'narcisstic solipist' its MY DREAM!"
A solipsist is one who believes that nothing exists except one's own self and the contents of that self's consciousness [solus alone + ipse self].
You, on the other hand, seem to be a sort of old-fashioned Platonist, i.e. rejecting reality as merely shadows on the cave's wall, the cave in which we're 'stuck', true reality being impossible for us to fathom without breaking free of our chains. (Breaking free of the chains is the tough part...)
"Nothing ever happened!"
I don't know who this Poon-jazz is but when my cousin was a cop he was getting that reply every time he asked around.
That neighborhood surely was very philosophical.
