Don't hate the player hate the game, right? If you could play the game, you'd be a player too!

Nah just the AI side of things I think.
There is no engagement now. Know your neighbours? Not many do. Socialising now is an app called facebook.
I'm ditching the internet soon but I sort of fked everything up by switching everything to online including banking.
Handwritting has taken a nosedive thanks to putton pumping....hey one day if tech goes down we will be a global specues of reclusive social retards who struggle to communicate in writing and talking (pink floyd)
We lose the moment by taking second place to a camera phone to upload and share how good it was not realising that the kids we have are looking at some mug constantly holding a camera.
Ah forget it I'm probably wasting my time and should practice what I preach.

YouTube "Look up"

We aee sacrificing the very aspect of true life in favour of technology.
Now think and research bio electromagnetic fields of humans. ......quite interesting health effects.

So an advanced alien race that is possibly way outside our barrier of space and time makes a giant, unfathomable sand box of a universe filled with even more space and what not, and Earth is the center point where they are making observations about our actions and reactions to figure out some giant universal code that has something to do with the meaning of life?

Wow, and these genius's at Nasa aren't even concerned about space travel being the number one priority where they just seem sitting at their desk smoking weed, where the beings that our outside or definition of space an time can't physically interfere, and could even want us in space?

Wow, can I try applying, I've tried Sky Walker bud a few times.

What else has NASA got to do right now? They don't have the budget to do much else than launch probes and postulate about random stuff.

Anyway, just like humanity has an interest in anthropology, it wouldn't be surprising that an alien culture would be interested in anthropology as well. What better way to study it than being able to watch it occur in person.

Why simulate such terrible pain and suffering?

What are 'they' testing or getting from this matrix then?

Me? I think we now have so many more scenarios of existence than ever before. I think that for most of our history, most people had only the basic meme, belief system of the culture in which they were raised to use to answer any big questions, existential questions that they wondered about. One part of the world had this meme, another part of the world had another. For all of the history I have read, this seems to be the case.

I don't know as that we have as a species have ever had such a period as we are having now, philosophically wise. The deeper we look into the atom and the farther out we look into the universe and study the nature that surrounds us, the more those old systems do not hold for many of us. Not all of us, but many.

This scenario you present above is becoming a more 'popular' meme to think about. BUT it is one of many that are cropping up. And many of them do seem to have a number of answers to the deeper questions that we can have.

As our cultures mix, and our histories blend and as we allow ourselves to break from the old thoughts and look for the new, we are finding that so many things are possible. And here is the thing for me Olaru. None of them are true. Many of them do present ideas loaded with verisimilitude. And we know how easy it is to mistake verisimilitude for truth. Keeping this distinction as we search for how things 'really are' is paramount in keeping ourselves from going completely off the rail.

I find that thinking about these ideas is stimulating. But only thinking about them. Coming to believe in them quickly shoves us off into one more belief system. Actually, my motto for myself is to not beleive anything any more. I have believed a number of different things in my life and find now that for me at least, not believing but only considering is my wisest course of action.

So, yeah. Aliens created us and we are living out a virtual reality life, well, sure. I can think about it. As well as I can think about a number of other ideas, but just think about, and maybe somewhere, in between all the cracks and crevises maybe, just maybe I may find myself the wiser.

And I must say Olaru, I do find much of the things you bring to the table, interesting to think about. So, thanks

My reply to that would be.
That would depend if you believed everything you were told as facts.

If it is a program then all depends on how it is written.

Hmmm, I wonder Who's playing me?

And how many lives do I have ?

Can I have God Mode please !

Newtons 3rd law: For every action there's an instantaneous opposite reaction. This law describes the concept of physicality. Note, that it does not represent solidity or substance. Basically, when a force meets with another force they tend to repel one another, or one overcomes the other. The reason why you do not pass through solid objects is because of Newtons 3rd law.

In computer games, something very similar to Newtons third law is established so that physicality is simulated in the game. So, my question Newton's 3rd law in our reality simply the execution of code that promotes physicality?

Makes you think?

So the terminator movies were accurate after all, the only difference being WE are the machine that became self aware
unless of course thats what the "free will" debate is all about, because if we are confined to the programmed parameters of our alien creators we don't really have free will at all.

The big agonizing question then is who is playing with us and how were they created?

So the universe is inside a computer even bigger than the universe, some computer! Ah, but who writes the programs for every star, planet, and drop of water? grain of sand, blade of grass, leaf, bird, mammal, fish, insect, human, bicycle, auto, plane, cup, knife, fork, spoon.

Yes its quite true, were all trapped inside our own heads.

Speaking to Vice the NASA scientist said, “Right now the fastest NASA supercomputers are cranking away at about double the speed of the human brain …If you make a simple calculation using Moore’s Law [which roughly claims computers double in power every two years], you’ll find that these supercomputers, inside of a decade, will have the ability to compute an entire human lifetime of 80 years – including every thought ever conceived during that lifetime – in the span of a month.” - See more at:

So NASAs super computers are only double the speed of the human brain? From my observations....that's not very fast! People can't even think fast enough to use their turn signals BEFORE they start their turn.

I call BS on the processing power that NASA has on thier super computers... And therefore I call BS on your source.

Markram’s grand vision to simulate an entire brain’s worth of neurons will require epic computing power. The project’s first Blue Gene supercomputer was robust enough to simulate a single neocortical column in a rat (its whole brain has the equivalent of 100,000 columns). The Human Brain Project will eventually need an astronomical amount of memory and computational speed—at least 100 petabytes of RAM and an exaflop—to make its sims possible."

So you need an exaflop to make a human brain simulation possible....

Top 500 supercomputers list
As from June 2014

Total combined performance of all 500 systems has grown to 274 Pflop/s, compared to 250 Pflop/s six months ago and 223 Pflop/s one year ago. This increase in installed performance also exhibits a noticeable slowdown in growth compared to the previous long-term trend.

The top 500 supercomputers combined only total just 0.274 exaflops.

Currently the only company I know of that could achieve anything like a human brain processing power is IBM due to thier new synapse chip that imitate synapses of brains. If they put about 33,000 of those chips together they could have the same amount of synaptic operations as a human brain.

NASA's current computing power... The Pleiades Supercomputer... It just recently got an upgrade to 5.35 Petaflops.

Pleiades Supercomputer Performance Leaps to 5.35 Petaflops with Latest Expansion

NASA Pleides Supercomputer 5.35PF
For the second time in three months, systems engineers at the NASA Advanced Supercomputing (NAS) facility have expanded the agency's flagship Pleiades supercomputer, increasing its theoretical peak performance from 4.49 to 5.35 petaflops (quadrillion floating-point operations per second).

5.35 Petaflops... Thats 0.0535% of what is thought needed to compute a human brain simulation.

Check your sources people...

So wouldn't this theory of all this being a deliberate computer-like progam or simulation be in conflict with the theory of evolution and life just being a coincidence and humans being nothing more than advanced animals who won't be held responsible for their actions?

Well, that's what a God is there for. An all knowing God. Now... Does an invisible all knowing God seem that far fetched now? If he creates all this, these codes, the laws of physics and everything that's known to mankind, then surely, it shouldn't be that hard for him to hide himself.

Not aliens. WE made this game. It's a total immersion game. Each of us is truly an avatar, so I say to you, Namaste.

Does this game have a unlimited money and health cheat.

Just because we cannot do it doesn't mean another life form could not.
