4: We create our own reality (our thoughts and our thoughts alone create our reality)
As much as I would like #4 to be true, although I would than be much more masochistic than I thought. Indeed life has shown that #3 is more likely. Just in my experience. :cool

Like many of the theories that litter this forum, none of them were really talked about until Hollywood made a science fiction movie. Then all of a sudden people are talking about it as though it's real. I remember doing that stuff when i was a little kid but thankfully I grew up.
It's fun to imagine a world where these science fiction concepts are true, it's healthy to exercise imagination... and I'm sure we all do it after a movie - but having said that, some people really don't know when to let go of it, or when they've gone that step too far.
Philosophy isn't a scientific study into the nature of reality, it's chasing free form though to it's ultimate end.
The irony of those that may believe we live in a computer simulation is that they have just created their own fake matrix and chosen to live in the lie.
Actually the writers of The Matrix ripped off theories of a VR that were already in circulation.
Research a bit more! You're could learn something mindblowing.
