I Think Therefore I Am

In the 1630's, Renee DesCartes said the following philosophical statement: "I doubt, therefore I think, therefore I am." Or in Latin: Dubito, Ergo Cogito, Ergo Sum (or something similar. I bet you didn't know I knew Latin).
In 5768, Rabbi Paltiel corrected DesCarte's statement, saying it was only true regarding Ruchnius, where everything is rationalized, but in Gashmius which is created by Atzmus, the following is actually true: "I Am, Therefore I Am."
The deepest truth is existence.

Profound, I know.
