  • it's easy to be a solipsist, easy to convince oneself. only i exist etc..
  • see convo with sriram- (see evernote) how solipsism cannot be true
  • rather lazy philosophy. egocentric.
  • when i see dylan, i cannot help but see the light behind his eyes.
  • to be a solipsist is a negation of the complexities of philosophies.

but perhaps solipsism is not mutually exclusive with other people--

everyone is a solipsist, and god is a solipsist, and so he invented himself multiple times in other people, so indeed reality is solipsistic, but through multiple perspectives- maybe this is a different “strain” or definition of it.

the problem with this theory that i am alone in the universe is that the whole endeavor of philsoophy is to find a philosophy in which that it leads to the best outcome if EVERYONE subscribed to it. so if eeryone became solipsistic, it would lead to a degradation and malfloursihment of the total collective consciousness, (the idea of the jordan peterson version of truth-make new essay on it )(but maybe truth is maladaptive to evolution, etc reference it), cause such an installation of philsophy on a mind would lead it to become a recluse, or see everyone as an object of their disposal. thus anachy ensues when everyone thinks it. sam harris brought up the occams razor arguement of if my biologic makeup is the same as others, - and it is - chances are they are conscious too. but i never liked occams razor.
