“I THINK THEREFORE I AM…”

typewriter_legswtypewriter_sample_img_2Quote by René Descartes {In French: je pense que donc je suis.} Add to this mix one Professor Stephen Hawking who says: “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance it is the illusion of knowledge.”

Lately, and I know not why, I’ve been deep in thought about our world and my place in it. Oh, I have none of the je ne sais quoi (I don’t know what) of either of these inspired thinkers or whether or not I accept as absolutely true their contemplations of what it is to be humankind.

Modestly, here is my example of the premise I Think Therefore I Am. When I blog I am required to think so that who I am comes across in my words. You, my readership, also need thought to translate, as you see fit, my intention and once understood—therefore you are.

But ultimately unless I’m blessed with genes that keep me alive for centuries, I can prove none of what I’ve written here. On the other hand, maybe in my passing away I will catch Descartes or Hawking at their folly or their brilliance.
