Descartes "I think, therefore I am" assumes fundamental being is derived from the thinking mind. That was 3000+ years after Hindu philosophers went deeper than the thinking mind itself to absolute stillness. Yet the fundamental "I AM" never extinguished. You can explore that yourself in deep meditation as I have done.

"I think, therefore I am" is a belief you cannot prove. But it is something people want to believe.
