Hours before I go to sleep, I think about this very question. I'm convinced that none of you exist and you all are a figment of my imagination. How do I know that you have a consciousness? How can I know that you have feelings and aren't just a hallow body?
Everything that has a beginning has an end. But what is the beginning of the universe? How is it possible that we exist? How can the Universe leap into existence? There has to be a beginning Are we just programs controlled by the Machines? Are we just living a dream world ? Are our emotions and feelings just stimulated by our brain? Do I exist?
I invite you all to reply both scientific and religious explanations .
Problem is (and I'm really trying not to sound rude) what would be the point in asking this anyway? I mean a discussion over a piece of literature on that theme or a movie is something natural, but a direct question about it doesn't make sense.
