Your not understanding me. I am showing you the limitation of a tool which you use to understand the universe. My statement was based on your axiom.
When there is no evidence of a thing, there is no reason whatsoever to believe that thing is real. Any claim not backed by evidence is just word salad.
My statement remains.
How much scientific evidence do you have that you are having a subjective experience of self. None it does not exist. You cannot prove it. The one and only thing you can be sure is real cannot be proved. That should tell you something of the limitations of the philosophy that you use to desribe the universe. But it will not because there are those that hold on to science as they would papers of religion. Neither understanding the limitation of what they hold
As I said you cannot provide proof of your subjective experience. Using your rational that makes your subjective experience void. Yet here you are reading my words. Do you see the paradox here.
Do you understand the limitation of the tool yet.
