A brief history of existence.
Here's a top down list of different explanation of "what it's all about".
Dualism is where we're made up of two bits, the body and the soul. Lots of people have worried about how the body and soul actually get it together (see, the mind/body problem).
- Solipsism is where I'm the only thing that
exists. You don't exist, you're not reading this, and I'm
wondering why I'm writing it.
"Can you prove you exist?"
- Monism comes in three completely different
"What's left when my body's gone?"
Exotics we're made up of 42 tangentially different substances that interact through soul vibrations bounced off the moon.
"Where can I score some more of this?"
Thanks to JerboaKolinowski for pointing out Neutral Monism.
