I think therefor I am Ren Descartes stated that he knew that he existed due to the fact that he had thoughts How then could he know that the people around him existed Couldnt it be feasible to argue that if there is no proof that someone else has thoughts ie if you cant experience their thoughts how do you know those thoughts exist then how do we know that those around us exist We cannot know that something exists unless we experience it So how could he know the rest of the world around him existed To say that experiencing existence comes down to just looking around at the world then wouldnt it be valid to say that we only exist in our minds The world is made up of interpretations by the electrical and chemical impulses that make up the brain So couldnt it be possible to argue that no one truly knows that the world exists If the world is made up by these interpretations then how can one not argue the same about dreaming Dreaming is made up by imagined situations and places while a person sleeps In dreams a person can experience taste sight smell touch and hearing just like the physical world If our dreams are made up of the same substances that our so-called waking world is made up of then there is only one difference between the two worlds we can awake from dreaming So then one could easily argue that thats how we as humans know exactly what reality is Perhaps though there is a way for humans to awake from reality No one is quite sure what happens when a person dies We know that the heart lungs and brain stop working We know that we turn cold and decay But none of us has ever experienced personal death No one has ever been able to determine what happens to a person regarding the afterlife
