Hi Alan,

>>>I do not mean to offend with the term 'follower'>>Thanks Paul for restoring my faith in peoples' willingness to allow debate to find the solutions. >sounds like the section in the "Godel, Escher, Bach" book on 'strange loops'.

"Thought happens" does not solve this>>Even more minimally, "thought happens" involves a verb "to happen", which means a 'change'; so you are still left with knowing that this 'change' exists.>You are still left with something existing,>even if 'I' is just a 'change' called "thought happens".>>So you've ended out with a 3-in-1 loop; which I have suggested is what existence is like: to exist is to be 3-in-1, it would seem. Self-referent.
