I didn't like the way Descartes thought about this: "I think. Therefore, I am." Personally, I claim the assumption "I am" comes before you say "I" anything else.

I don't accept that you can prove your existence based on your knowledge that you can think. It's my view that you just accept your existence as obvious, and your thinking as one of things you do.

Even "I think. Therefore, I am." works, it doesn't mean souls and such things must exist.
