Do you really exist?

I just watched this TED Talk and it made me think! Enjoy 🙂

  1. Interesting TED talk. I’m not convinced that we are the sum of our “parts” (like a watch) . . . I think we are the witness, a detached observer, watching experiences unfold with conscious awareness.

  2. Go to an Observatory and view the universe thru a high powered radio telescope and look thru and beyond our galaxy and you realise just how insignificant we all are in this so called ‘universe’…..yet despite that we can still reap havoc on our small patch called Earth 🙂

    • So true David. Whenever I am in a plane and look down to the suburbs below I am reminded of how insignificant we are and how our minor trifles can get so out of proportion. Thanks for your thoughts.

  3. Rainee, I’m going to have to wait until morning to watch this deep question video. Oh my. Going to bed and didn’t want to wonder if I existed. I’ll face it in the daylight.
