The Law of existance

    The Law of existance......

    The Law of existance.
    Anyone who knows this law, exists. Anyone who has communicated(one way or two way, in any form) with someone who knows this law, exists. Nobody else exists.

    Assume that
    1. This law is true.
    2. I know this law.
    3. You cannot communicate(one way or two way, in any form) with someone who does not know this law.

    How would you prove that anyone who doesn't know this law exists?
    :wink:

    i would communicate with you to learn the law and/or urge you to communicate with those who don't know the law.

    that's the thing, u can't prove anyone exists by any means. everything is a type of faith.

    so what if you can't prove it? i don't get why that's a problem.

    This is not law, it is called a quibble.

    "1. This law is true.
    2. I know this law.
    3. You cannot communicate(one way or two way, in any form) with someone who does not know this law."

    1 is uncertain
    2 is uncertain
    3 is uncertain

    You have not proved any of these. Maybe this law is true, but as you have not stated the law is cannot even be decided whether it can be assumed to be true or not.
