    Default What makes you sure that you aren't in a virtual reality (VR) right now?









    Something to ponder.

    haha, did you post this after I made my comparison about "consciousness levels" in the other thread, or before I did and we just mentally synced up?

    Man, it would make aspects of my life much easier if I knew I could resolve them by just kicking out of the current FUBAR level. "Don't you want to take a leap of faith? Or become an old man, filled with regret, waiting to die alone?"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    If you believe that life has a meaning and purpose beyond that which we can perceive whilst in this world, then we are all just players on some sort of stage, are we not?

    we don't know @radiox sometimes people make themselves seem dumber on purpose to throw us off. I mean if i am that's fine i guess I don't know and if I did i don't think i'd know how to leave. ever see that movie it's really cool but this guy creates this thing that allows you to enter the memories of a criminal and the police ask him to help with a case but something goes wrong (he keeps telling them it's not ready, and finally he agrees) and gets stuck in the guys memories for like 18 years. I wish I could remember the name it's a really good film.

    prove the existence of your god scientifically. if you can't all evidence is just anecdotal and dismissable in court

    The dodo has no faith, the dodo was hunted to extinction.

    Thankfully now we have laws that protect animals like our friend the dodo, and prevent tragedies like this from happening again.

    So I like to think that we get smarter as time goes on.

    We can't be sure. But even if this is a virtual reality, nothing changes the fact it's real for us and we have to live it one way or another, so it doesn't really matter what kind of reality this is
