According to the ongoing debate in the other thread (http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/can-a-golem-speak), my whole existence is uncertain!
Reminds me of the reason Yitzchok didn’t marry his sister “bakol” – if she was indeed in existence, because according to those who say she wasn’t, he’d be left without a wife.April 11, 2013 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #945171popa_bar_abbaParticipant
The mishna in perkei avos talks about you. You obviously exist.April 11, 2013 3:41 pm at 3:41 pm #945172just my hapenceParticipant
If we take the same criteria for proof of one’s own existence as Descartes did the answer in your case is unclear.April 11, 2013 3:59 pm at 3:59 pm #945173
pba, no, according to some it’s only a dream. Hyper-theoretically (or whatever that fancy word is). If I were, those seven ways. I’m sure that’s why they say the mishna starts of with golem, but then switches to chacham, and ends with “and the opposite a golem”. I’m sure they say ’cause maybe there isn’t such a thing. no?April 11, 2013 4:05 pm at 4:05 pm #945174PBTMember
The philosopher Rene’Decartes has a famous quote attributed to him, “I think, therefore I am.” So one day, Decartes walks into a bar for a couple of drinks. After about the 2nd or 3rd drink, the bartender asks, “So, would you like another drink?”. Decartes replies, “I THINK NOT,” and disappears. Just another aspect from which to consider this thread.April 11, 2013 4:21 pm at 4:21 pm #945175Torah613TorahParticipant
You’re a concatenation of atoms.April 11, 2013 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm #945176
Surely you exist but not in Old Man’s dream.April 11, 2013 8:28 pm at 8:28 pm #945177
No, you don’t exist. None of us do because none of this is real. Try not to get too bent out of shape about it.April 11, 2013 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #945178🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant
You exist if you use the other definition of Golem as in a klutz, idiot, spaced out individual. If you want to be the man made man, no you don’t. No one in this generation would make one.April 11, 2013 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #945179iluvbeingjewishMember
hmmm…. You definitely exist cuz ur writing to us. My question is: since when have I existed? Am I a gilgul from the days of moshe rabeinu? Am I moshe rabeinu?April 11, 2013 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #945180
You don’t exist because this is a false world is what I mean. This world is the grease trap under the sink. It has a specific purpose, to trap all the schmutz. Entrapment is legal in the heavenly court. Everyone gets trapped here against their will and everyone will have to answer for what they did while they were stuck on the flypaper. All the tehillim in the world won’t prevent you from having to answer for bad business dealings.April 11, 2013 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #945181shmulik1Member
What’s a difference if you exist or not all you have to do is listen to mamar hashem etc.. and if you don’t want to believe in hashem and therefore ask these questions in order to cover your feelings, you’re a straight forwad koifer, and there is enough what to answer, so just stop thinking so much or take some pills to heel your wounds and carry on with a serious lifeApril 12, 2013 1:16 am at 1:16 am #945183writersoulMember

Does Joseph exist?April 12, 2013 2:48 am at 2:48 am #945186
My my. I see before me what a great Gadol said of someone, “If he would be in the woods he would fight with the trees.”April 12, 2013 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #945187
My my. I see before me an infamous condescending attitude from one who shuns common sense.April 12, 2013 4:44 pm at 4:44 pm #945188
Many people see that before you.April 15, 2013 3:11 am at 3:11 am #945189
Of course I exist. Arnold Fine said (says?) so.
