please i want to know bertrand russels view on reality

This quote, from the first link below, gives a brief look at Russell's view of reality.

"According to Russell, reality is a complex of entities which exist objectively and independently of any act of knowledge. For instance, the reality of the pen with which I write does not depend on my perception of it. The sensible world is a system of possible "prospectives," and the knowledge which the subject has of reality is merely one of an infinite number of possible prospectives."
