Descartes and his imagined identity

I think therefore I am.

Seemingly, what irreparable harm he has done Life this fool of philosopher – which otherwise is said to have been quite a likeable person – for everything, and I mean everything in today’s society, is directly connected to his mad assertion.

“Remember, people like Descartes”, says Joakim,
think this faulty contention  – cogito ergo sum -, is deep and mystically true.

I mean, its their only argument for their imagined identity.

Most likely, it would be more appropriate to say ‘I sneeze, therefore I am’ …
It makes more sense, doesn´t it…?” 🙂

About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

  1. So if we are not our thoughts, then “what” are “we?”
