i think, therefore we exist.
A question I would ask is, are you your thoughts or do you have thoughts? We have come to identify with the mind that that is who we are ( I think therefore I am). Instead of our minds serving us, we serve the mind with our thoughts, To be clear though, the mind is not the enemy, it's there to serve the self, society has it reversed. To experience the self(I), one cannot get there by thinking or using logic, it has to be experienced. Like learning to ride a bicycle. We can think about balance and talk about balance but, the only way to know what balance is, is through direct experience. Same with experiencing the self. "I" is not a thing, even though the mind really wants to make it into a thing. Trying to use mental concepts like the "matrix system" or "software" just confuses the matter, I would recommend not using them if possible.

"However, I think Descartes really struck home with "I think, therefore I am". " I think Descartes missed the point with "I think, therefore I am". It should be "I think, because I AM." "An idea cannot stand alone; you need a device to hold it, to nurture it, in this case a human brain." In order for a thought, idea or concept to have power, it needs your attention and emotional attachment/involvement.
