Well, I can prove it....just not to other folks, who may or may not exist.
Well that's not really much of a proof then is it?

Girly spent a semester at uni shredding the Cogito Ergo Sum some 30 years ago now before ManlyGirl went and got all preggie and shit and Girly, above all else a pragmatist, switched majors from Phil to CompSci. Big Grin

Sure do. And I draw the conclusion of that possibility from the lack of any formal argument to the contrary. (A little help from Borges don't hurt. Wink ) Don't mean I can conclude I don't exist, just means I can't conclude I do. It's not really a big deal one way or the other 'cause I'm still gonna wake up, go to work, and feed my family in either case. Like I said, Girly's first and foremost a pragmatist. Girly can play this game without admitting himself. Hell, I can probably play it even better by doing so. Tongue

I know that Girly exists, as do HoC, Lumi, etc.
They think up shit I couldn't come up with even on acid, so they must exist.

That is an excellent backdoor argument. Big Grin

A demonstration of the versatility of the subconscious, nothing more.
