A philosophy professor, convinced of his sense of the world, believed that he was

a man who had died but still walked in the world. His family had for many years tried to convince that he was wrong. With no success. Finally, they convinced him to see a world famous therapist. After a year of therapy the professor remained as convinced as ever that he was a man who had already died.

The therapist, at wits end, finally asked the patient. "tell me do you believe dead people bleed?" The professor thought about that question for a minute and said "no, I believe they don't."

The therapist seized that moment by jabbing the patient in the forearm with a hatpin he had previous concealed. The patient winced at the pain and the therapist pointed to the pinpoint spot of blood coming from his forearm and said "what do you think now?"

The professor responded, "what do you know, dead people do bleed."
