How do we know we actually exist?

Do we actually exist?
This is a tricky one, sorry to be quite so heavy, but understanding this is the key to understanding a lot more about our reality and how it functions.
Last time I asked, as energy beings living in an energy matrix, how we knew we were” real” at all. Scary thought but one we should address .This has been debated by philosophers and scientists for thousands of years. The answer is of course, that we only know we exist because we think and are aware. “I think therefore I am”
Interesting enough, we cannot know anyone else exists at all. Interactions with anyone else could be a trick of our brains. All our senses , touch hearing etc, which are the way we make sense of what is around us , are all functions of our brain. Thought comes instantaneously before physical sensation or action. It could be misleading us.
One of the main keys in trying to understand the truth about who and what we are is human consciousness. It is the joker in the pack. Very difficult to pin down but we individually know we have it .It is what makes us us and our vehicle for making sense of the world around us.
The great debate is whether it is one system or two. Whether it is just a function of our physical brains or something else coming in from outside as an add on. If it is the latter, and there is overwhelming anecdotal evidence that that is the case, then it opens up vast possibilities for the big picture of who we actually are and our place in the universe. If our consciousness is separate and separable from our physical body, and can be shown to go on after our physical death, then then the big picture possibilities, who we actually are, and what we are doing here get a whole lot more interesting.
.I always think of life as an interactive video game, after all we are at base energy beings living in an energy matrix, only our consciousness makes us who we are. Life comes down to what game you are playing and what your mission is. Our instincts and hints given by the universe and the deep understanding given by our consciousness’s are the best reflections/insights we have. Unfortunately, at the moment the instruction manuals are beyond our reach!

    This is fascinating to think about. I loved your statement that we can not know if anybody else is real. This is a disturbing and intriguing thought at the same time. We are living in a matrix and we have no way of understanding exactly who or what is the mastermind. Hmmm….more ponderings.
