I am sentient: I know this via "Cogito ergo sum."

Those configurations of quarks that my antiquated cognitive architecture
has designated as discrete objects called "cows" are no more alive than
my computer or one of those motorized toy cars that babies think are
alive because they move.

Turkey for breakfast, anyone?
