How do you know you're real?

From io9: "In this video from TED-Ed, James Zucker teams up with Stretch Films' John R. Dilworth to dish out a cogent, three-minute introduction to René Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy. If you've ever wondered how to get from 'How do I know I'm real?' to 'I think, therefore I am,' this one's for you."

See also Nick Bostrom's argument that we are living in a computer simulation.

Another: moving parts.

A third: not part of a jester's costume.
