Programmus, ergo sum.
I code, therefore I am.

What does this mean?

I have beneath my hands a keyboard. I can touch the keyboard, and see it. But touch and sight are merely sensations of the mind. The only thing I can truly prove exists is my code, because it is abstract, it is not a sensation, yet is a product of my reasoning. Therefore it proves that I exist.
