that idea is called Solipsism
people question reality and therefore the existence of mankind.
i mean sometimes dreams feel realer than reality
so how do you know when your senses are lying to you?

a different kind of doubt in the existence of stuff is nihilism

It has been reported that some victims of torture, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not wake up. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren’t being tortured. The only way that they realized they needed to wake up was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to wake up. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP

I feel a very loose version of that. I think that I am the only real person and everyone is just here to make me experience life and none of you are at all real.

Oh man. I got in this mindset for like a month, I was convinced nobody else was real. My logic went like this: I can think, I can hear my thoughts, but I can't be sure anyone else has their own thoughts, it could all be fake, and I can never prove it.
To be honest you can't disprove that, still makes me paranoid. But it means you never really embarass yourself because nobody else is real, which is a plus.

at first it started with everyone was made to serve me. Then I thought of war, strife, and hardships everyone has to go through minor or major and they all affect me positively or negatively but the possibility of negatively was still there so that was ruled out. but it's really weird how that can be true.

We will never know... So the question remains, who am I talking to now, are you real? Or are you just an illusion?

It's understandable.   
   
Look at the door closest to you, and try to remember that other side of that door.   
You may have walked through that door everyday of your life and know every splinter and crack in it, but the existence of the other side of that door is completely subjective.   
   
To prove this to yourself, think:   
-Although it isn't likely, someone could have painted the other side of the door.   
-There may be a bug sitting on the handle.   
-What if there is a person standing on the other side of the door?   
   
Any discontinuity with your perception of the other side of the door and its true appearance creates a grey area in the existence of the other side of the door.   
   
We live in a Three-Dimensional world, but we can only experience Two-Dimensional shapes at any given moment of time. Even if an object is see-through or you have a mirror at your disposal, you never can truly see the other side of an object until you rotate yourself, and once you do that you lose visual contact with the other side of the object.   
   
The only other way to help explain this theory is to think of one of your teachers. Where are they right now? What do they look like? How tall; how heavy are they? Although you may answer every question correctly, you are only mentally imaging their surroundings and features to the best of your knowledge.   
   
Considering all of this, it would still be rather strange to look someone dead in the eye and question their reality.

Here's a mind-blowing thing to think about.

There is a certain void of nonexistence. In other words, there is a void in which people or things could have existed, but they don't. At any given point of time- past, present, and future- there is always a possibility of a specific person existing; however, they don't. These people are forever stuck in this void, even though they have never existed, but they COULD have existed, but it will never be possible for them to EVER exist. All of us- you, me, and everyone else out there- could have been part of this void, but by some miraculous stroke of luck, we were given the opportunity to exist. The possible people- not so much.

It can all come down to science; who your mother and father are, how they met, when they met, what factors could have deterred or compelled them to copulate and conceive you, all of the other sperm cells that could have been faster than yours, etc.

However, it is still MIND BLOWING (to me, anyways) to think that we actually EXIST, we exist in place of another human being that doesn't exist. Even though there was the possibility that the person wouldn't have existed in the first place, there was also that same possibility that we wouldn't exist in the first place. But me and everyone reading this DOES exist. Now, i really don't want to come off as a religionfag, but this is compelling enough reason for me to accept that there is a higher power at work; God, Allah, Buddha, Jehova, whoever; I believe that some one is at work making this happen.

I've thought of that too, however, who's to say the multi-universal theory doesn't work, that every time someone gets an idea, it exists in a parallel universe?

And who's to say we're not part of that nonexistance, but don't actually know it, and were given consciousness by an idea or possibility that we can exist?

It's all one giant loop, with so many possibilities.

and what if all those loops of different realities/dimensions exist wrapped around each other, each still completely separate, like a ball of rubber bands, touching at points where they are similar but never merging?

You're assuming that there is some sort of soul. Think of us as complicated machines, because that's what we are. There is no "void" where every machine that could have been created rests, and there is no human before the fetus. Mathematically, the chance of existing is incredibly small, but the chance of someone existing, you or anyone else, is one, and it has to be someone. Just like the size of a rock. That a rock would have the exact size it has is almost impossible, yet it has to have a size, and there is no void where all the other sizes are.

^this

also, because every random event that happens, or doesn't happen, it'd create a copy of you in the void, because it'd have had a different experience and would therefor be another person..
so everything you do, or don't do, would make a new you in the void?

It is interesting to think of existence and all its applications. the possibility of existence is mathematically mind bending. but what are the possibilities of an person existanng in an existence where there is a computer and a website named funny junk and on said website there was a person that had named there avatar Goochmaster, and another person introspecting the sheer uncertainty and awe inspiring reflection of the now.,

just the thought of that, knowing that you were the one that "made it out", you are the one who is in this reality gives me inspiration to live the best of my ability, since i got this chance to "live.

This is something that I've actually been pondering for a really, REALLY long time. I'm completely sober; I've actually never smoked weed my entire life.

Then I would like to spend a few days inside your brain. It must be an interesting place.
