Much to my wife’s dismay (just the idea itself is terrifying to her), I talk a lot about this very interesting philosophical concept -SOLIPSISM – philosophy.The theory that only the self exists, or can be proved to exist. Just think about that for a moment or two. Just imagine that YOU are the only person/thing (whatever you want to call the self) that exists in the entire universe. Let me expound a bit, just think of YOU -YOURSELF. Now imagine that everything you see, feel, hear, touch, smell is your world and if solipsism is true, it’s the whole world too. There are no other people, things,animals, etc. just YOU and your magnificent brain creating this world. Your wife isn’t an other, it’s your brain creating a world in itself. Fascinating philosophy, but definitely creepy. Enjoy – hey you’re truly the only entity that exists.

    critics claim that solipsism is the extreme egotist at work. The arguments against the theory of solipsism are numerous and too involved for this blog. Interesting idea but there are far too many other concepts that one may pursue with more rewarding results.

    Yeah, Donald J. Trump.

    Yeah solipsism is a creepy philosophical concept indeed. I do, however, on occasion give it serious thought. Who knows? Right?
