These kinds of philosophical musings are nothing new. What's real and what is not is a main point in Plato's parable of the cave. Descarte did his part to affirm his existence based on the conclusion he was thinking and at least knew that, but others have suggested, "What if my existence is all but something going on in someone else's dream?"
I think, however, that if we look at children playing in the yard we will see that none of them has any doubts about his or her own existence, or the existence of his playmate's toys. In this we discern the probability that as adults we start to think too much.

Another issue these questions raise is that if we have any doubts about others' existence it will undercut our empathy with their suffering.

just my two cents...
