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?
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"?
