Anyone know German?
This link has a bit of a dissertation on identity (ish), including a mention of the "brain in a vat"
philosophical thought-experiment, which almost exactly parallels the premise of The Matrix.

Some chunks are in English - mainly extracts of stories or other works on the subject, including
"Where am I? aus Daniel C. Dennetts Brainstorms". Another link in the chain?

Meanwhile am still looking for "thought-experiment" in German, 'Gedanke' is, more or less, 'thought' and
'Versuch' is 'experiment' (sounds like 'research'), but don't know the combined form.
