What do you know for sure and how do you know it?

#1 Post by Compassionist » February 28th, 2023, 9:11 pm

I know for sure that I am a sentient being. I also know for sure that there are an infinite number of things that I want to do but cannot do due to a lack of abilities e.g. I want to make all living things forever happy but I can't. I also know that I am constantly doing things that I don't want to do e.g. sleep, dream, age, breathe, etc.

Everything else is unknown to me e.g. I don't know if the world I perceive through my senses is actually real or is simulated or is a hallucination.

What do you know for sure? How do you know for sure what you know for sure?
