If I didn't exist I wouldn't feel like I didn't exist, I wouldn't feel at all. The point that I'm making is that there is dedicated logic in my brain that makes me feel certain things for certain very good reasons. Some philosophers argue that there is a "spark" of consciousness that makes me feel like I exist. But I believe that there is no consciousness in that sense, instead the feeling of existence is product of feeling itself.
