Well of course "I cook therefore I am" is a valid statement.
That's what I thought.

But, like Descartes had to prove he was thinking, you have to, I guess, prove that you're cooking.
How does one prove an experience?

Quote Quote by Char. Limit View Post
Descartes' method of proving he was thinking was to assert that he is doubting, which implies thought.
I still don't get it. Does counting imply thought? Why is doubting special? Why is thinking special? Why not just "I experience, therefore I am"?
