Cogito ergo sum

by Lacalamity

But how can I know that you are really capable of thinking and I am the only real person here ?

Cogito Ergo Sum: “I think, therefore I am”.

Esse Est Percipi: “To be is to be perceived”.

I perceive you, therefore you exist.
If you perceive me, I also exist.

I perceive you, but it doesn’t prove that you perceive me the same way I perceive you

Fortunately we can both exist without identical perceptions.

It’s enough for me that I am perceived in at least some way.

It would be interesting if suicide was as simple as convincing others we didn’t exist.
They could just stop believing/perceiving, and (*poof*) we could disappear.

I’m actually not sure. I’ve been swallowed up by solipsistic delusion many a time. It isn’t fun.

Having flashbacks from philosophy class. Thanks, that was fun.
