Philosophy Wire: Self-reference: The key to everything? [You are alone]


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2017-11-24]: Researchers have pinpointed a brain region monkeys use to evaluate their ability to recall memories. To date, this metamemory process, which requires a higher level of self-reflection about our own cognition, was thought by some to be unique to humans, though this research suggests otherwise. [1]

Remembering based on what we… remember. Being ourselves because we are… ourselves. Consciousness defined based on… itself. Existence existing because it… exists. Self- reference is everything. It is as if everything is just… One. And everything we see and feel are just pointing all to the same direction, to the same clearing within the dark forest…

Nothing exists. It is just you. Alone…
