Corollary to Thinking and Existence

Anyone remember my axiom of self? That line of thinking didn’t go far. However, I’ve been working lately at separate pieces of thoughts, hoping to bring it together into what I like to call an “internal consistent philosophy.” Today, I had a breakthrough — my personal corollary to Descartes’ “I think, therefore I am.” It is as follows: “How I think determines who I am.”

Now, you may not think it particularly brilliant, but it’s actually a very important step in creating an all-encompassing “internal consistent philosophy.” This will be what allows me to connect my axiom of self to how I should live, when I start to think about what determines how I think. Of course, I have no answers to that question yet (How I should live, I mean), but I should be on my way.
