Cogito Ergo Sum


Pinch of Pepper:

Cogito ergo sum: Is classical Latin for I am thinking, therefore I exist or I think, therefore I am. It is a philosophical proposition made by René Descartes, a French philosopher of the 17th century. This proposition forms the foundation for all knowledge. While all things can be questioned as to whether they are from the Realm of the Real or a figment of one's imagination, the very act of questioning one's own existence serves as proof of the reality of one's own existence.

Trees of autumn weep their beauty
Aging rainbows fall onto an anemic earth
Intellectual tears of
I think therefore I am
Cry molecules of philosophy
Over deaf grasses of high tech generations
I am the last leaf
Clinging desperately onto a rooted branch of
Cartesian thought
