If you could be the 'God of the Simulation' would you do it?

There's been talk of this reality possibly being a Simulation.

As we know one of the problems of religious dogma is how do we see the concept of a god. Is "God" all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present?

If so, then we have the "Problem of Evil". In metaphysics and philosophy this is called Theodicy. This is a term coined by Liebnitz.

At any rate the problem of being the 'god of the simulation' is how much do you interfere in the simulation?

Another problem is would you rather be in the simulation where there is a vast array of options for interesting things, or would you rather be the creator and 'just observe'. Ultimately, given enough time, that could be boring.

Finally, on what conditions would you interfere and would you have conditions to end the simulation?

Hope this is of interests...discuss.

It would be up to the god of this simulation. He could enter the simulation, or not. Time would not be a problem as "god" would not exist in the boundary of it, unless he wanted to.

If I was the god of a simulation, I would create different tribes with different languages and cultures.
I would have them each be influenced by different religions.

Then I would sit back over thousands of years and watch them gain power and destroy each other.

Me and my god buddies would make bets to see who wins.
Every now and then, one of us would "cheat" and send in "space ships" or a "messiah" to mess with them or to give them knowledge and guide them.
It would be like a 25,000 year long game of Risk with real, live pawns moving across the board.

The game of gods!

I would remove the existence of the paranormal and reincarnation and restructure the universe the way non paranormal believers see it.

It would be a masochists dream come true where he would simulate a World War 3 and then possess every person that suffers and inflicts the suffering, one life at a time.

A real loony town sickO.

I would play as every person before I was done with the program.

That would mean everyone is me.

A total Universe put on pause so I could go get a snack...

I like that...

But I could never be in charge of the simulation. Hell... when I played Sims3 for a bit I kept then from using the bathroom or shower. Of course they would take fits which I thought were hilarious. Simply to see what would happen.

I couldn't imagine what I'd do with a whole universe at my fingertips.

The inhabitants of the universe would probably hear maniacle laughter booming from their home planet skys full time while wondering what the he'll is going to happen next as they note where the nearest bathroom is...

No... I just couldnt.

It's a game.

But I won't disagree too much since you're me.

Ok this just got confusing.

I would not limit earth to a petri dish with a in but not out firmament lid.. likewise what's up with the unscaleable walls all along the south?!
Then again perhaps the simulation limits self-destruction to this earth rather than beyond it.

LOL. Sorry, but you are a bot in my head whilst I am in a 'matrix' illusion on a super duper space ship orbiting the Planet Zarg right now. No one can prove me wrong.

I'd definitely make the flat earth round again.

Make it so!

The problem with that is how we explain all the people seemingly bored to death with this existence, crying and whining because their apps don't work, their phone isn't the most current model.

If a simulation, why not make everyone happy, everything perfect?

Hahah! No you're the bot!
I'm the real player.
You're just programmed to say that...

If I was Big Boss I'd start with a perfect creation. A Son and Daughter that would be my heart's joy living in paradise together. I wouldn't let them leave their room of paradise, until I soon realize that an infinity of this gets redundant rather quickly. So I'd grant them free will knowing that they would screw things up. But it's better than me locking them in their perfect room for forever without free will right?

I'd give them simple commands like don't kill or steal, and never forget Me because you'll get lost if you do. It's hard though, because I want them to have their freedom, but they abuse it so easily which is detrimental for the rest of my kids. Because they wouldn't appreciate eternal bliss without temporary suffering, this would be a necessary first step though. Yeah sure they'll react just as any other kid who gets put on timeout, but it is ultimately for their benefit. I would want to give them a driver's test before I put them in the driver's seat.

Once they pass and are shown to be trustworthy I'd give them all my powers to do what they want in their own universe, because I am the greatest God of all time and I have many dope mansions for my kids. I'd probably send the oldest Son to go and tell them whats up because I imagine after thousands of years of Babylonian debauchery they would have totally forgotten the meaning of life and the birthright I have waiting for them. Hopefully they're not too enthralled with their 9-5 efforts in futility to believe the good news.

Exactly!

If a "simulation" why have so many of the souls inhabiting the simulated world suffering in so many places and so many ways?

If there is a God in this "simulated" world he must be a seriously cruel sadistic SOB.

Planet Zarg:

Zarg, officially known as the Capital Planet, the Center of the 9 Galaxies and the Hoary Host of Hoggarth, is the seat of government of the known Universe.

It is a flat planet and also the location of the galactic superbrain which is the processor of 'the Matrix'.

Time also goes slower on Zarg, as it takes almost 2 seconds for 1 second to elapse. To compensate for this temporal differential, clocks are programmed to tick much slower.

The inhabitants of Zarg include the Lobs, which are intelligent crustaceans and their favorite restaurant is the Pink Human where they eat soilent green as the main course.

I know, either everyone is following their program to kill, steal from and put each other in jail, or people are violating their programming, which means they have a choice.

There goes simulation theory.
