The Machine In The Ghost
Descartes said "I think, therefore I exist."
You don't need the "I think" part. That part is an object used to prove a subject, I exist. No object is permanent, certainly not your thoughts, and it proves nothing.
Just ask yourself, How do I know I exist?
All you can finally conclude is, I don't know how. I just know it. That is all of which I can truly be certain.
No object can be found in the I am. There is just knowing it. Pure subjectivity.
Once that is understood, REALLY understood, the search has ended.
I am. One without a second. Just this. Forever this.
The ghost is not in the machine. The "machine" is in the "ghost". Forever unidentifiable but unmistakably present.
