a) should read something like "a)Nothing but me exsists everything else is a figment of my immagination.", lets call that neo a) for now...
So you cant falsify (neo) a) because of your own exsistence and you are back where you started with only the knowledge of self exsistence derived from the cogito.....

I've been following this thread and recognize that I am not qualified to add anything to it, BUT I do have a question. It seems to me that if we're at "neo" that's where we're going to stay. Moving past that point is an impossibility ... so whats the point of anything? scientific investigation? faith?? magic? what's the diff?

Yep thats pretty much the pickle that Descartes found himself in....
He attempted to use God to pull himself up out of the mire, problem is he had to prove God first and his proof turns out to be circular.....

and the same would hold true for using science ... using magic ... etc.?
