New Reading and Writing: An Argument that You Don't Exist

The new readings and writing assignments are up on the home page. The readings include Unger's argument that he does not exist. If he's right, the problem generalizes and none of us exist. So what do people think? Where does Unger go wrong? (It would help to figure out just what he says before we criticize it, but I'm not asking anybody to PEE the argument (yet). I'm just asking for criticism. Unless, that is, you accept the conclusion.)

I think it is really interesting the idea of only particles existing. i mean, everyone perceives things differently; someone could look at a t-shirt and say its blue while someone else says purple while someone else says black. it all depends on perception which goes on to prove really that everything really is only particles because nothing has any specific definition, right? i dunno, what do you guys think?
