You might wonder what's happening, my answer being:
"I'm contemplating my existence. Am I just a battery in an endless stream of slime filled cubicles, in just a complex simulation where everything we know, everything we care about is meaningless, just a line of code in a program? What if, even worse, our world and everything we know is just a simple simulation on low power mode? Yeah. Woah."
So that was depressing, but let's talk about this reasonably. So simulations are programs that are run to simulate an experience or something like that, like a video game. A simulation is only limited to the code, and the coder's experience. So if an advanced species of aliens that were super coders (or hardcore geeks) were to create an advanced simulation, with equally advanced artificial intelligence (AI) that has emotions, feelings, and most importantly, has no idea that it is just a little blip of code in a giant program, that is just to have a bit of fun or charge the alien equivalent of an iPhone, then how would we know?
My answer (again, my opinion, you don't have to agree with it) is: Storms.
When you think about it, when an advanced game glitches, it can change the gameplay and sometimes turn the game off. Think of a program that simulates a little world, with tiny cities etc. This program will (as all programs do) glitch, randomly but frequently. A storm is a frequent but random thing that happens, which we take for granted. "But BunkBedBlogBoy, people can see storms coming, you have to be wrong" I hear you say. But what if this program is so advanced, so cool that it can detect glitches before they happen, and stop them. Mostly. The program is able to stop most of the glitch, but a bit always slips through the program's fingers. That is a storm. And it doesn't stop there. If this program can control everything, it can control the light of the sun, the way that the advanced devices we have charge their solar batteries and see (and predict) the weather. Wow.
So aliens from the far future have built us in a computer program. We live in a simulated galaxy, with suns and moons nothing but lines of code. I'm scared. Very scared.
So that was a short post. I haven't done much in a while, but I'll hopefully get another post written by tomorrow. Also, be sure to like, subscribe and comment. Bye! (FYI: The like button is the little heart at the bottom right, just underneath the post ;])
