Descartes ends his meditation on a somewhat positive and satisfactory note. By adopting Descartes' rationalism, one would be led to believe that humans are 'rational animals', with a faculty of mind and intellect, with the ability to think and reason. All this would propose that we are the most superior species on the earth. This would also conform to religion and Christianity, whereby it was strongly believed in society at the time that God created us as special creatures. Hume alongside empiricism on the other hand, would lead one to believe that as humans, we do not know everything, and we are not as clever as we may sometimes believe ourselves to be. In his work, he wrote that we should burn 'any volume; of divinity or school metaphysics' as it contains 'nothing by sophistry and illusion'. It illustrates how against metaphysics he was as it did not contain any experimental reasoning using numbers of empirical data. Hume ends his work on a more pessimistic note. He proposes that our knowledge comprised of matter of facts, is merely derived through cause and effect and custom and habits. But we still cannot prove why it is that we assume past experiences or causes and effect to be the same in the future as in the past as the world is always changing, thus he ends without being able to prove this.

Input: One (1) of the comforters
Setting: Very Fine
Output: A comforter that has shown moderately anomalous properties. Testing with a few voluntary subjects shows that wrapping them up in the blanket, such that it covers around 80% of their body, results in a sense of security and well-being. Subjects wrapped in it and laid on their back report drowsiness and lose consciousness exactly 300 seconds later. The subject remains unconscious until the blanket is removed, at which point they awaken, reporting a restful sleep. Additionally, during this rest period, minor injuries and afflictions disappear, including scrapes, bruises, and in one case, a nasty cold.
Note: Well, that's enough from me for tonight. Someone wake me at 8, will you?
