Does "coincides with pure realism" refer to "meshes with/is the same as pure realism"?

*********************

He also says in his Tractatus that “solipsism, when its implications are followed out strictly, coincides with pure realism. The self of solipsism shrinks to a point without extension, and there remains the reality coordinated with it.” Again, I take this to mean that to appreciate life’s mystery is to BE immersed in it, the way that as a child I was immersed in the things I saw in the candy store window, but without thinking that those things, whatever they may be, are what really matter.

    Yes, it means that solipsism is the same as pure realism. If you put one on top of the other, they match --- speaking figuratively.
