Perhaps and perhaps not. Both a baseball and a tree are made up of subatomic particles after all.
Ultimately, yes, I suppose you could say they are, but subatomic particles behave nothing like our classical world of objects, like trees and baseballs.

So what are we? Figments of each others imagination? If so, how is it possible for figments to interact? Is imagination made up of sub-atomic particles? Are these stupid questions? If so, did I ask them?

Nothing like? I'm not sure that I would agree with that statement. Not that either of us could prove how sub-atomic particles really act.
