Erich: The other day I made reference to Descartes, the French philosopher. His famous dictum was, “I think, therefore I am.”
When I first heard that I said, "It sounds good to me. I don't know. That guy seems pretty smart." But then, the more I got into this, the more it seemed like I could argue his case in a way that I would agree with, but basically I think he got it backwards.
It's not, "I think, therefore I am."
It's the other way around. “I am” comes first...
