How do you know you’re real?

By James Zucker

Let’s Begin…

It’s Friday morning, and maybe you’re questioning your life a little: is it worth this long hard slog each week? But there are bigger questions to ask yourself, like, do you even exist in the first place?

How do you know you’re real? Is existence all just a big dream?

 “When you’re awake, you know you’re awake. But when you aren’t, you don’t know you aren’t.” 

Has some mad scientist duped us into simply believing that we exist? James Zucker investigates all of these questions (and more) in this mind-boggling tribute to René Descartes’s Meditations on First Philosophy. 

“I think, therefore I am”
