Solipsism (/ˈsɒlɪpsɪzəm/ (About this sound listen); from Latin solus, meaning 'alone', and ipse, meaning 'self') is the philosophical idea that only one's own mind is sure to exist. As an epistemological position, solipsism holds that knowledge of anything outside one's own mind is unsure; the external world and other minds cannot be known and might not exist outside the mind. As a metaphysical position, solipsism goes further to the conclusion that the world and other minds do not exist. A feature of the metaphysical solipsistic worldview is the denial of the existence of other minds. However, what I am exploring here is the solipsistic view that because personal experiences are private and ineffable, another being's experience can be known only by analogy. An analogy being a comparison between two things known to the one thinking mind. Should you not reflect the world view of the one thinking mind, could it be that the "real" you, the you that exists in your own thinking mind, does not exist in the minds of others?
