    West Versus East

    Right view is a short sentence descriptive of what ails most of us. There are varying philosophies borne out of ancient wisdoms which are not recognised as of a true value because of their egotisms. Trying to apply Buddhist thoughts in a western world is fraught with quandary. I...

    "Cogito ergo sum" is flawed,

    I wonder why Descartes wrote this down. Because it's totally flawed. If you say "I" you already assume you exist, otherwise there wouldn't be an "I"

    Cogito, Ergo Confundo.

    "I think, therefore I am confused." I think a lot and maybe a bit to deep, and makes me wonder about many things I sometimes don't know the answer to.

    I Think Therefore I Am

    In my opinion, if I didn't think so much, I wouldn't amount to anything at all. The only good thing about me is my ability to think. Anyone else feel the same way?
