I have always wondered about this, what if we are just objects in a game like a strategy game Caesar/Age of Empires/Zoo Tycoon and we are just instances of a class interacting with each other and some kid is watching us and playing for his own amusement.
Then I heard this article on NPR in this article scientist theorize that one day you will be able to build your own universe. What if …………………….. somebody has actually done this?
Imagine this, instead of presenting your nephew with an xbox360 you give him a do-it-yourself Home Universe Kit. Open the box, plug it in and there it is a universe ready to run and amuse you. Pick a time line, setup some rules and watch it play.
We maybe just part of this kit. Come to think of it, why is it that every civilization that ever existed has the notion of God? Is that some kind of base rule that was setup? Are ghosts just memory leaks? Is sleep just a way to run Garbage Collection?
Will we ever know ? And more important , do I want to know ?
