One popular view of the foundation of reality is that there is just physical stuff, and from that we get everything else. This thesis describes in detail an old rivalling view, that the foundation of reality is just mental stuff -- minds. After providing a detailed description, this view is compared to the more common view that there is just physical stuff. It is argued that there is little difference in the virtues of each such view, though some reason to prefer that which is outlined in this thesis.
