Thanks for the compliment but I think we & SA (but not Descartes) have made the mistake that if we cannot prove we do exist by this or any other method, we do not exist. We & SA can exist without proof that we & SA exist.
I take consolation in the fact that if I make a mistake & it is a mistake, I must exist.
