SO YOU GUYS KNOW THAT THING
“I think, therefore I am.”
OF COURSE YOU DO.
So this guy. He was French. And also good at math and stuff.
so when he was a kid he almost died whoops
but then he didn’t.
So he was kinda a weaky frail boy but. He hung with some monks, and then he joined the army in Holland. In 1618.
DO YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN 1618.
it was the beginning of the 30 years war
So he never actually went into combat????? but he did travel all over the place????
which was kinda what he wanted to do anyway so das coo
AND THEN HE MET THIS GUY WHO LIKED THE MATHS
so basically there was this thing which may or may not have actually happened uh
THE CARTESIAN COORDINATE SYSTEM.
so this one time while Rene was chillin he saw a fly. wow dude this is intense.
so he thought WHAT IF I CAN PLOT THIS FLY WITH TWO NUMBERS
meaning he was gon graph dat fly.
AND HE MOVED A WHOLE LOT. AND HE THOUGHT. A LOT. AND HE STARTED TO REALLY REALLY LIKE PHILOSOPHY. AND HE WAS LIKE “SKEPTICS ARE STUPID”
and a lot of people liked being skeptics ok
and they thought the old ones like plato and aristotle were really stupid because LOL THEY DIDN’T KNOW THE NEW WORLD EXISTED THEY STUPID
So there were the skeptics who had some whacked out version of brain-in-a-jar syndrome who were like “I DON’T EXISTS”
and thats when rene said “I think, therefore I am.”
right right ok.
and he also thought God existed because “A good God would never create man to think God existed if he did not.” and that “A perfect God could not come from the minds of an imperfect man.”
THE DISTICTION BETWEEN BODY AND MIND.
DAS P COO.
SINCE THE SENSES CAN’T BE TRUSTED, THIS ME, THAT IS TO SAY, THE SOUL BY WHICH I AM WHAT I AM, IS ENTIRELY DISTINCT FROM THE BODY.
so anyway then he died
a week after he got pnumonia
there we go.
this was a terrible post im sorry ahahaha.
