Do we exist...

This is the main board for discussing philosophy - formal, informal and in between.

one exists only because one claims one exists... nothing more...

there is no deep metaphysical reason, no spiritual reason, nothing...

the past is gone and the future never comes...

there is the moment, there is now, I exist because I claim I exist.

period.

to blame or credit anything else is delusional...

What's the difference between a liberal and Al Qaeda?
Oh, you don't know either?

"False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils, except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." (Thomas Jefferson)

Correction BeenaJain,

On the question of "self", what makes our consciousness is simple memory.

A person thinks the same way as a computer.

Yes, everyone has different data, that's what makes us different. I may lack certain data, therefore I am different to you.
