99.999999% of folks immediately discount bc it defies (our human) common sense. Just like a particle can exist anywhere and everywhere at the same time. Human logic just doesn't work.

I think a lot of people can't handle the notion that it could be fake and that our existence (if you can call it that) has been meaningless.

But really, what are we in the greater scheme of things? At the lowest common denominator we are bags of water and a little bit of electricity.

I find it soothing to think that this really could just be a simulation or just one of a billion parallel universes.

If it is a simulation then that implies a higher being that created it.

I can see how it might be possible that we live in a simulation, but I don't really see why an advanced species would bother creating and hosting it? Seems like a bit of a waste of resources and why simulate down to such mundane detail?
Simcity was fun to play/watch but only from the big overall view.
Or maybe we are some advanced alien's version of a kids grade 6 science project ant colony?

Read some Asimov for a more tangible possible glimpse into the future.

My favorite movie on this subject was "The Thirteenth Floor." It was in theaters about the same time as the original Matrix movie. I liked Thirteenth Floor better, personally.

This simulation [censored] is exclusively the blabberings of the rich. Ask the guy who spent 10 hours in the sun doing roofing for a living how much of a simulation he's working in. THEY are living in a simulation due to the fact they're in a frictionless life.

that kind of attitude just keeps a man "in his place." are you in your place?
