    Do you really exist?

    I've sometimes been suspected of being one of Terminator's multiple personalities. I don't believe I am, but then again sometimes I wonder--what if I really am just a sleeper program in the back of Terminator's mind, but just haven't realized it yet? What if everything I believe to be real is really an illusion? How can any of us know for sure that anything or anyone exists, that the world we perceive is real, and that we aren't all just computer programs in some kind of Matrix? How can any of us even be sure that we really exist?

    The real question is, "If Jenna falls in the woods and there's no one around, does she make any noise?"
    "When a crime is committed, liberals blame society. Conservatives blame the criminal." -Debra Saunders

    Old Scottish Motto- "nemo me impune laccessit". It still holds true today.

    Sorry Phoenix, as much as I'd like to claim it, someone far more famous than I, said it first.

    I think it was Socrates who said "To be is to do." Aristotle said "To do is to be." Sinatra said, "Do-be, do-be, do."

    We all have a temporary existance. According to one's beliefs or lack thereof, what follows is either a voidless eternity filled with nothingness, eternal damnation, or eternal bliss. It's that simple.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    Winston Churchill

    I hate it when I am dreaming and I wake up in the dream thinking I am awake but still asleep and then i really wake up totally f'd up.
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Existence is particular of ones own perspective. I exist in my own mind, as does everyone else. Therefore, yes, I do exist. As do all of you.

    Reality is merely that part of imagination upon which we all agree.
