180. Doubts arise only about objects other than oneself;
but no doubt can ever arise about one’s
own existence, “I am,”
(That is, no one can ever doubt
“Do I exit or not?”).
If one mistakes the body’s existence to be one’s own existence,
then innumerable doubts will arise about the world and God
(which appear to exist only when the wrong identification “I am the body” rises);
but if one knows oneself to be Self,
the one real existence,
then no doubt will arise about anything.
