"If we are, we ought to reboot the motherf***er."
If YOU want a hard reset, keep it to yourself. It`s unfair.
I want to try some cheat codes before then.

"Change Outfit: `Everyday`"
Code: *swoosh!!* *outfit becomes jeans and a t-shirt*
"Edit Sim in CAS"
*CAS starts*
Code: "Corrindo Jitmar!! (what-up, motherf*cka`?!!)"
*Basics*
Code: "NO, DON`T CLICK THA-"
*turns into female*
Code: "F*CK!!! Now I have to fix my hair all over, again... Hey, the breast slider is installed!"
*slides all the way to the right*
Code: "ARRRGHHH!!! MY BACK!!!"

I`m still looking for the cheat codes.

Maybe the counter-intuitive aspects of quantum physics are already proof enough that we live in the Matrix. One guy coded EMR as particles, and the other coder went with waves.

This all has a MIB I and MIB II feel about it. I never watched the Matrix.

What this group is talking about is closer to the Thirteenth Floor than the Matrix.

I do want to see the results of the test but, I don`t agree it`s an unflawed method for detecting if reality is a simulation.
There are some problems I see, off hand:
-Their logic assumes a computer from a higher level of existence would be digital.

-They`ve assumed `if reality is software, that software MUST be imperfect and so, requires maintenance.` That does not have to be the case, here or there.

-They`ve assumed resource limitations: `If Pluto [not in the field of vision of any player], [skip drawing Pluto]`
The resources needed exceed the available energy in the universe. So, what? The simulator does not need to exist inside the simulation.

So if I am just a simulation,
I am a bored one

Scientists are trying to re-create the big bang or find the God particle or get computers and robots to mimic humans so who is to say it hasn`t been done already and we are it.

You wouldn`t need to compute EVERYTHING since the Big Bang! That`s just silly!
>You could start the simulation at any point.
>You`d only `need to` simulate Earth`s variables - the rest of the Universe would be "wallpaper"

Why would it need "updates"? If it was written correctly the first time? It would run start to finish "as is".

Any pattern, or lack of pattern, could just as easily be built into the program as not.

Wouldn`t WE be part of the program too? Programmed to believe, or not believe, the reality around us?

Such "thought experiments" are fun though! Gedankenexperiment is the word for it...
