    Tech billionaires are trying to develop a way to break us out of the Matrix | Mic

    If we're living in a computer simulation like in The Matrix, how would we know? It might be really hard to tell, according to philosophers and physicists.

    It seems some leaders in Silicon Valley are taking the possibility seriously. At least two tech billionaires are recruiting scientists and funding research on a way to break us out of "the Matrix" that we may or may not be living inside of, according to a recent New Yorker profile of Sam Altman.

    "Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer," Tad Friend wrote in the New Yorker piece. "Two tech billionaires have gone so far as to secretly engage scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation."

    I subconsciously hate myself maybe that's why I attract the wrong people all the time

    ^ but this doesn't make sense, I've seen the most successful people in the group like me the most. What does this mean?


    . . .

    Can the common sensical answer please step up?

    You're a flirtatious fuck and you deal with the repercussions with it everyday and let it haunt you. Deal with it.

    I'm annoyed that no one will answer my question.

    How words, specifically those from California come to predominate within the U.S. then spread overseas is interesting to me at times. Thanks for indulging my curiosity.

    I can't decide which way "hella" is more cringe-worthy, ironically or unironically.

    I don't really think she's copying you. My friends and I say hella too. I think it's just a cultural thing people pick up depending on how exposed they are to it.

    It's quite a little bit more than that, but yes would this be the only "coincidence" I wouldn't have budged.

    I feel far away from everyone
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.
