    Default What makes you think you exist?

    What is it that inspires you to be something? When you close your eyes and sleep, does everything disapear, or just you?

    I am experiencing... there is a cognitive process going on.

    I cannot prove this to you objectively, but my subjective proof is absolute from my perspective.

    what about the perspective of others? If it seems like someone else confirms your existence, does that have any effect on what you think?

    In my mythological world most seem to be props...there are a few true others...and then there are those who become more real merely by entering my aura...needless to say most prefer not to become more real.

    I can know nothing for certain about the perspective of others. All I can know with absolute certainty is that my own perspective positively confirms my existence.

    With regard to other matters, other perspectives as communicated to me may certainly come to bear. As for that which "seems"... what is this "seems" of which you speak?

    Define "exist" first, please.

    There are things happening around me. I observe. I act. I influence the world around me. Existing things are things that can interact. I interact, therefore I exist.

    Even while sleeping, the mattress under me is deformed because of my weight. Maybe I'm not conscious while I sleep, but that doesn't defer me from existing.

    What if I'm just some character in a huge computer game, like in The Matrix? Who cares whether reality is defined in terms of matter or in terms of code? I'm more able to conduct myself holding the matter-based view of existence.

    If it quacks like a duck...

    Yes, that is what I would have tried to convey, though not so concisely or gracefully...
