Do you believe in solipsism, the belief that you are the only thing/person living, & nothing else matters? Only you are living. I mean look at the amount of people/animals around, & you are suffering, I'm sufferring. But, my cat doesn't suffer.

Solipsism, if you are the only proper living thing, then why are you suffering so much?

The theory or view that the self is the only reality.

Interesting, but if solipsists are correct there would be no need for case histories or psychiatric epidemiology... and I would be wasting my life not understanding anything. smad
