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
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?

To each, my own.
