Article: 288585 of talk.bizarre From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Brian Cash) Newsgroups: talk.bizarre Subject: You Date: Sun, 01 Dec 96 06:05:05 GMT Organization: Anet News Services Lines: 19 Message-ID: <email@example.com> I know you exist. If you didn't, you wouldn't be reading this. I know I exist, since I am typing this. The trouble lies in the connection. I don't mean USENET, the Internet, the "Superinformation Highway", or anything like that. I mean the transition from my existance to your existance. I'm here, you're there, and between us is ..what? Stuff? I think, therefore I am. You think, therefore you are. What about the rest? What does it think? If it can exist without thought, can't we? Don't we? How far are we from dogs? From plants? From rocks?
