Cogito spirituality

Descartes first development of his cogito is this:

If my existence could be given to sensation, it could be doubted.

It is impossible to doubt I exist.

If my existence could not be given to sensation, it cannot be physical.

A more elegant argument for the spirituality of the self is hard to imagine.
