That’s why as long as you think, you exist and are alive.
So much for you being a true thing, but what about all the other stuff in the world?
These doubts are in accordance with images that one obtains while in slumber.
How is one able to fully decide which is the true reality?
Meditations On First Philosophy is the number one work of philosophy of the Western world, written by René Descartes in 1641, abandoning everything that can possibly be doubted and then starting to reason his way from there.
The first time I ever learned something more from René Descartes than “Cogito, ergo sum” (I think, therefore I am) was in 2014.How is that he may be in this specific room writing? He presents such deceiver as someone who can distort the reality that one may think is true.Essentially, Descartes suggests that his evil deceiver is conspiring against him.Meaning, that all humans may not rely on their own understanding.What they know, their senses, and thoughts are not true.Through this meditation, Descartes expresses his doubtful thoughts in reference to his own dreams.He blatantly suggests that an individual cannot fully distinguish between what is real and what is not.One of the steps in Tai Lopez’s 67 Steps program was labeled “Descartes & Solving Problems With A Calculator.”It explained how Descartes kept questioning himself for days: “Is this really true? ” And every time he found doubts, he removed a particular belief from his mind, until he eventually saw he was left with only one thing: math.shows how he reasoned his way to these conclusions and more.Everything that an individual knows is derived from a perception or experience.He basically questions an individual’s ability to know which world is deceiving them.
