Giving Theism the Stalin Treatment

What's missing from this list?

Here we have New Scientist talking about straight-up metaphysics. What is reality?

Is it numbers?

Is it all in our head/solipsism?

Is it consciousness?

Is it nothing?

Is it a computer we're being simulated on?

Is it matter?

Is it laws?

A lot of pretty wacky ideas, even by metaphysical standards, are given air time. One popular, age-old, well-defended answer is missing.
