The Question

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).

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
