The bible may be 100% correct, but no answer to questions on calculus can be found within it.


Or whether single ply or double ply toilet paper is more efficient - the answer lies in how much pressure you apply - too much and there's a real mess.

A computer emulation means as-good-as-the-real-thing, how could we ever mathematically prove that we are living in a perfect virtual reality?


What would be the difference?

We're made up of tiny bits; molecules, atoms, quarks. Aren't we are already 'emulations'?


Yeah, from little computer emulated molecules, atoms, quarks. I believe so than it somehow all makes sense


Sure, but my point is if we are not a computer emulation, then we may as well be. If one accepts the possibility of this, then the real question is, are our computers early life forms. The HBO show Westworld is the latest mainstream attempt to ask this question.

All computers plug into a power source.

Discussion over.
