Kickass thinks nonexistence

Kickass, the doorstop dog, is doing his best to help the keeper as he—the keeper tries to comfort humanity in this time of coronavirus travail by suggesting that the Rene Descartes “I think therefore I am,” philosophy be revised to “I don’t think therefore I am not.”  This, by the keeper’s way of philosophizing, allows–even encourages you to deny that you are part of the current political and pandemic mess because, well, you probably don’t exist.  In the event of difficulty in accepting that you do not exist, the keeper suggests viewing the current absurd state of things as a virtual reality TV series which is leading up to a climactic final episode on Nov. 3 in which the entire population of the planet joins hands and shouts: “YOU ARE FIRED!.”
