I have this weird theory....
Again this is just a theory.
It goes like this.
Each one of us is effectively like Truman on the Truman Show (movie staring Jim Carry)
We're essentially brought up in this prison city. All the people around us are either fake, andriods, actors, or holograms. They're not real.
We're taught all this stuff about how the "real world", "universe" and this fake "broader world is out there".
We're all stuck in our cities, towns or places. We're prisons here and we can't leave. Only we don't know it. And to leave has been made extremely difficult.
But you've gone on a few vacations right? Well what that is is that the fake city allows for temporary leaves (leaves of absense). When that happens a fake senario is introduced. We could be sort of venturing into a hollowdeck (VR simulator), or put into some odd drug enduced coma, etc etc, so we are able to leave the city and believe that there is a "whole world" out there.
But there is no universe, or globe. All there is is you trapped in a city like on the Truman Show.
Again it's just a weird theory, but I think it holds some weight. What do you think?
