    Here's a bit of attention for you, Mr. G.

    Is that what you're looking for?

    Just being a pebble dropped into a pond to watch the reflections of the ripples off the shoreline.

    Not at all disappointed that so many folks have visited the post and not commented.

    Interesting that you believe you can read my mind.

    It that your super-power?

    You should know that I visit here infrequently because occasionally I have a Jones for engaging in the sporting lifestyle. I don't visit because I think I'll learn anything substantive.

    Tag. You're it.

    Do your best. Please.

    Why are you worried about learning substantive things?

    Is this an alternative to "I think, therefore I am"?

    You exist because you have a location ("here")?

    This would still seem to require qualitative events and cognitive activity as more fundamental for the conclusion. Since objects devoid of memory-dependent processes and experiences have neither presentation nor understanding of themselves as being anywhere and being anything.

    However, if you deem your own self-validation to be insufficient -- if you are trying to verify your "I am"-ness via another party, requesting assistance from other appearances that are likewise conscious (or at least act like they are), then I can limitedly assist you in this endeavor.

    Your entreaties are indeed manifesting "here" (a spatiotemporal location, at least as represented by a "mind"). I can reciprocally attest that your text product has "be-ing" as both visual and (optional) auditory phenomena. Beyond that I will not venture whether their supposed distant "cause" is a biological organism or the programming of a machine.

    You may also solicit opinion from members of the aforementioned "absent to itself" manner of be-ing... like a rock or the Moon. However, I wouldn't be hopeful of response. Even when rendered second-hand "visible" by psychological affairs, that normally "invisible" mode of existence remains quite snobbish.

    How can you possibly imagine that your assertion is actually true?

    There's no actual sport here?

    Checkers, not chess.

    Got it.

    Did you know ducks like ripples, the ripples tickle their bottoms.

    Actually an instance of sardonically employed apophenia. How one can encounter a meaningless, empty, fatuous thread bound for the Cesspool -- but still project a potential pattern of significance into it. In predictable fashion, however, the topic's fatalistic author spurns the charitable handout, valiantly remaining devoted to the original trajectory of doom.

    There's old CC turning out numerous empty threads daily over on SciVillage, and getting NO replies to the bulk of them. And here's Mr G popping up now and again and getting more replies in one post than CC does in a week of daily numerous postings. Funny old world.
