It has been theorized that we are actually living in a computer simulation, and that nothing we experience is real. This leads me to this week’s question:
Do you believe that this is a legitimate theory, or is it just a bunch of nonsense that has been foisted onto the scientific community by the “tin-foil hat brigade” due to the less-than-absolute repudiation, and borderline credence given to it by a few well-known and well-respected individuals within the scientific community? Would solid proof of this being true or false change how you lived your life?
I remember the Matrix trilogy, the first of which I enjoyed, the second was OK and the third completely lost me.
However, the thought that someone has designed life as we know it to be lived as a computer simulation or a version of The Truman Show makes me ask ‘Why do they think they are God?’
Who decides who lives or dies, who puts idiots in charge with no common sense, and are we all born with an expiry date at which we just ‘stop’.
My brain isn’t wired for computers. I don’t understand them and am naive about how they work, but do appreciate the convenience and knowledge available when they do, should I wish to look something up. I can operate a laptop and get by with basic software, but that’s about it I’m afraid.
Like the question about would we want to know the date and time when we die. I’ll pass and enjoy the days as they come (though maybe today could have been better).
