Are you for real?
If you think you are- you are not.
If you don't think you are real
or you simply don't think.
Then there is no you.
How can you be real ?
If there is no you.
If you think about this it will drive you crazy.
you loves being logical.

Considering that self doubt is the leading cause of slackerism, I think I'll pass fighting with this one.
I'd rather be a productive memeber of society.

Kinda ruins the first line of your post.

If I can understand what you wrote for your title, I am a sheeple. As for your post, interesting now you're delving into the human psyche! Fun!

Something to that effect.

Reality is that which is perceived by the viewer.
We give reality meaning merely by witnessing it.
If we did not exist, reality as it is to us, would be a moot point.

We do exist though... simply because we perceive our reality.

I interact with you, you interact with me, therefore, we are both part of the same reality.

At least this much we can be certain of.

Tea has more caffeine.

Or at least it does in this reality.

I am not real. I am me.
I am not me because I think.
I am me because I am not you.

Who is you? That is not me. You is not even real to me.
How can you be real when you are not me?
I must be real because you are not me.
I am the one thinking about you after all, and not me.

Its not about what you think, by time your brain processes a thought it is already embedded with doubts. Nothing makes sense because everything is possible.

Cogito ergo sum


The phrase became a fundamental element of Western philosophy, as it can form a foundation for all knowledge. While other knowledge could be a figment of imagination, deception or mistake, the very act of doubting one's own existence serves as proof of the reality of one's own existence, or at least that of one's thought.


I highly recommend anyone read Meditations on First Philosophy if you haven't yet.

It's free also. Link to pdf
There are also many other sources for Descartes writings, through Google and there are more links on Wikipedia.

society happens all by way of the self, wether there is doubt or not.

sorry you are more than wrong it is exactly what has been said if you look close enough. But just to add another idea, are you sure Rene was right? If you are, its a miracle that you can be sure!

You could argue that it was "license plate speak" before it was "text speak." And if you can't figure out that RU4 sounds like "are you for" then you're hopeless.

And to the OP - the only reason I think I'm real right now is because if I don't show up to work tomorrow people are going to be pissed so I must exist to some degree

Reality is that which is perceived by the viewer.
(That is what we call reality, also we perceive dreams and that is not reality).
We give reality meaning merely by witnessing it.
(True)
If we did not exist, reality as it is to us, would be a moot point.
(Possibly, we would have to experience that to know.)

We do exist though... simply because we perceive our reality.
(something exists but it may not be us and that might not be as terrible as the ego believes)

I interact with you, you interact with me, therefore, we are both part of the same reality.
(writting is considered to be a 2D world, expression happens and those expressions are part of that (world))

At least this much we can be certain of.

( lovely dovely )
I must be real because you are not me.

It is wonderful.
We are not one, but we are.
I am not thinking, but I am.

A molecule in the ocean is not the ocean.
A person is not the world.
The world is not the solar system.
The solar system is not the galaxy.
The galaxy is not the universe.
The universe is not what then?

It is infinite, and from infinitely far away it is all one.
You are me.
I am you.
There is no thinking.
There is no time.
There is just it. It is what it is.

Ah but the brain is so much more.

Lets look at an action or thought from reverse:
We make a decision.
We have a thought.
Multiple neurons are depolarized in a web.
A single neuron is depolarized.
I single chemical reaction happens.
What then? How much farther back can we go?

If it all stems back to a chance molecular reaction then we are not thinking.

We are just very fancy chemical reactions.

But we aren't are we? There does seem to be a lot more to it than that


Edit~If you like philosophy I highly recommend checking out a course in Eastern Religious Philosophy. It will blow your mind. There are so many text dating back thousands of years on crazy philosophy subjects like this.

the manchot stood with quivering crumpets
doth the hectares be ever grondling
the primbly catcus withstands
