Here is a scenario that has been troubling me deeply over the passed few days. I seriously need help.
Let's say you have a brain in a jar, container, room, whatever. It's hooked up to a device that feeds it information the same way a body does: feelings, sights, smells, sounds, etc. So to the brain, it is living in a fully functional world with friends, trees, a sky, the ocean, everything. It thinks it has a body, and that everything around it isn't fake. But really, in the real world, it is simply being fed information by some wires or something of the sort.
What if I told you that you are the brain floating around in the jar?
Can ANYONE out there think of an argument to counter this?
