“Cogito ergo sum” – “I think, therefore I am” (Rene Descartes). I contest Descartes’ statement and submit that being springs not from thought alone, albeit an imperative. If being is dependant on thought alone, I propose existence will be jeopardized. I don’t, for example, “think” about breathing; I don’t “think” about sensing, i.e. feel, taste, smell, hear; I don’t “think” of homeostasis. Then I also I laugh; I cry; I love; I hope; I dream; I believe… which are not necessarily birthed by thinking. I agree, in a metaphysical sense, being transcends that which is physical, such as also thinking. However, I am more than mind… I am also body, sole and spirit. Where do these fit in Descartes’ proposition? Is the “cogito ergo sum” theory not perhaps “reductio ad absurdum”?
