So, if you grant my point does this matter, defined in our arbitrary way, exist?

That depends, which arbitrary definition would you like to use?

Oh good! If the answer depends on the definition, please choose some of the more interesting examples of definitions and show how the answer changes.

Here is a defintion, if you need to get started

material substance that occupies space, has mass, and is composed predominantly of atoms consisting of protons, neutrons, and electrons, that constitutes the observable universe, and that is interconvertible with energy

Since it is your definition, I will let you decide whether or not matter, defined in that way exists. I wouldn't presume to push my interpretation upon your arbitrary definition.
