I Am a Solipsist

To all who believe knowledge begins and ends with the self 26 People

    It's strange writing something to people

    who don't exist In all seriousness though, I feel like I am in an empty theatre watching characters in a movie. Are the words from my friends mouths scripted? I feel like I am the only one with original thought. I know this isn't true, but how can I be certain when I cant think...

    I have learned that there is only one truth

    that I can depend on for sure: that my consciousness is real. All other belief systems no matter how small or large, require me to place faith in my senses, my logic, and other people. The fact that I am capable of thought is indisputable proof that my consciousness exists...

    A Terrifying, Yet Liberating Experience.

    My solipsism perhaps goes hand in hand with my social phobia and, although never diagnosed, I am probably autistic. I would not describe myself as a true solipsist, as I am (often) willing to accept others' existence, but that my brain creates abstractions that I overlay on...

    Who Is The True Solipsist

    I believe the world is created by my mind, thus, i am god. Or at least one unknown god created me, and only me, as a creature with free will. Other things are exist because i exist, and are programmed doll.   Anyone have a similar thought?

    My Time Of Enlightenment

    It started when I went to visit my sister in Seattle. We were hanging out at a skate park and I asked her, "Hey. Uh... Do you happen to have any... Y'know... Mushrooms?" And she responded with, "I do," my heart stopped. I asked if I could try some. "Yes. But you have to promise...

    But I am trying to make out that if I am the one who exists, then why am I the one who exists? I know you; who are reading this, don't exist, this is just my imagination, but as far as I can think, I can extract the answers to my questions only and only by these imaginations...

    I have come to realize

    that I am truly the only thing in this world. Everything around me is created by me in an elaborate, fantastical illusion to try and cause me to not recognize the fact I am utterly alone. I do not know what this makes me, whatever I am. Does this make me a "god" of this world...
