OK, but if we take the old "I think, therefore I exist." argument, it can be easily disproved by the assertion that the I maybe a simulation running in a computer.

Nothing can be proved to exist.

If we take the possibility that in the future, computers will be able to run such simulations, and if one computer can run such a simulation the possibly many can, possibly multiple times, then the probability that you happen to exist in the one true reality diminishes to the point where it can be almost dismissed out of hand, therefore in all likely hood, even the most basic assumption that one's own mind is sure to exist, is almost certainly false.

Now the only reliable assumption is "I think, therefore something exists."

It depends what you mean by "I." The body, brain, etc. cannot be proven to exist, but consciousness and sentience can. No matter if what "affects" them is or is not real, they themselves are.

Then do you exist if you are a computer simulation of yourself?

Do you still exist if the simulation isn't running?

1. That depends if the simulation is sentient/conscious.
2. No idea. Does it matter (for argument's sake)?

This is the great unknown of Artificial Intelligence, can we be sure whether an AI is truly conscious, or if it just emulates consciousness.

I learned that chocolate milk is not like white milk.  When the date on the jug says expired, it's expired.

Senegalese French is very similar to Parisian French, but the mannerisms and culture make all the difference. o_o

Do you learn French?
Our French is different by the accent and the vocabulary a bit.
