I thought I was
but it was just a thought

I thought I can think
but it was just a thought

I thought I could do
but it was a thought

I thought I was god
but it was also just a thought

and then God thought he was me
and that was also just a thought

I am the thoughts that cannot think --
they only think they can think.

what god can never be
not even if it could think:
the ONE
that thoughts make None.

– really Really REALLY

Well said

"I think therefore I exist", "Cogito ergo sum" of René Descartes which is one of the main pillars of modern western philosophy is a terrible mistake.

When you inspect the logical proof of René Descartes for this argument, you find out that the more precise argument was "I doubt therefore I exist". He showed that logically the one thing that you cannot refute is the fact that you are doubting. It is surfing at the top of the analysis of the cognitive process and doubting is a type of thinking.

What he and so many others happened to overlook is that there is something else on top: the witnessing of the doubting.

So more accurately and more of essence can be "I witness therefore I exist" and even about this I'm not sure. Even beyond witnessing there is presence, being, that which words cannot accurately depict.

And what is exactly "to exist". What's the meaning of "to exist" beyond the deceptive daily instinctive meaning we use. This is beautifully investigated in http://www.gurusfeet.com/blog/deception-called-form.

So maybe the closest argument is "I am and therefore I am". Funny :-)

add more line.

one can only think according to his/her thoughts,
but thinking needs "Time"
god is away from "Times"
he does not lives in "Time"
Now just think about "Time"

" I "


This "I".
That thinks all these thoughts...
Specially about being "THE ONE"
Where there's "NONE"
