Welcome to Sentient World Simulation. Similar to the popular strategy games like Sims City and Roller Coaster Tycoon, the US Department of Defense is currently constructing a truly global simulation. In this virtual world, the simulation is creating a copy everybody in an alternate simulated reality to see how long we can go without food or water, or how we will respond to disruptive events (weather, crime, cultural, etc.). Yes, this massive project is a parallel to planet earth, with billions of individual “nodes” to reflect every man, woman, and child
Simulation also replicates financial institutions, utilities, media outlets, even down to street corner shops. By applying theories of economics and human psychology, its developers believe they can predict how individuals and crowds will respond to various stressors (both good and bad). The hope is to see how the whole gestalt operates – which means the behavior of the whole as unpredicted by the individual behavior of the parts which make up the system. Kind of technical – but very, very interesting! Thank you for visiting and supporting Sentient World Simulation.
