Not sure this is the right thread for this topic, but here it goes....
Someone invents a machine that taps into your brain. It stimulates the parts of your brain that experiences reality as you know it. You can buy
programs for this machine that will let you live out your wildest fantasy and experience it as it it happened. But, its all a dream.
20% of the people that try the machine get hooked. They are living the majority of thier lives hooked up to the machine in a dark room in a comotose
state. When they are interviewed they talk about wild adventures (drag racing cars, space missions to Mars, winning the Superbowl, flying like
Superman). In fact, the ones that say, wanted to play major league baseball, come out and play way beyond their previous level of play).
In the end, however, its not reality as we know it, and it all takes place in your mind. The experience seems real to those that enter the machine,
but we on the outside know, they were lying in a bed the entire time. And, a great deal of them become addicted and spend their life live savings to
live out their dreams...knowing they will die much earlier than the rest of the population (due to non activity and lack of real exercise and
stimulation). The addicts are okay with this as they say they have lived wild adventures and experienced things you never could in real life.
Would you do it?
