    Default What a strange world we live in!

    Took me 40 years before it hit me WTF this is one strange dream of a world. It looks and feels solid and real but is it? Now scientists say this world could be just a simulation and we only exist in someone's cyberspace. How real is a dream?

    I try really hard to not think about things like this haha. Can it even be proved?
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Actually, look up the hologram theory. We and everything we know consists of light from the ever-expanding universe, and in a way the three-dimensional thing is an illusion, we're flat.

    What is interesting is that quantum mechanics tells us things exist only because of interactions.

    And so in a metaphoric sense so do we. We only exist here because we interact with one another.

    Real or not this dream is fit to be called a nightmare sometimes, don't you think? With all the people suffering and dying, even in a stimulation, we can feel, think, move, and hurt. So what my basic point is, it doesn't matter if we are in a stimulation or not, because no matter what our actions are affecting others. That's all but if this was a dream.......would you really want to wake up?
