The Simulation Theory

?As we develop more intricate machines, we have to ask ourselves, are we ?in a machine? As we create simulations ever more realistic, we'll have to ask ourselves, are we ?simulated????  The more and more virtual we get, we'll have to ask ourselves, are we simulated? It's a confusing argument to make, and here's why. To be simulated, you have to not be able to tell reality from the simulation, or, more accurately, if you are simulated. You also ,ust be able to simulate the Universe, and consciousness. But wait; it's been shown to be physically impossible to simulate everything in the Universe, down to it's atoms and quarks, and even worse, it seems thatsome things may be unsimulatable.

?The solutions? They may have some sort of super-technology, or don't have to simulate absolutely ?all? of itYou see, from a distance, can you tell the letters of a book apart? Can you see behind you? Can you see atoms and neutrinos and gamma rays, or feel the core of the Earth vibrating? No, at least, that's what I think. They only have tosimulate as faras their little test subjects can see. Your body was hollow, until you looked inside; your house wasn't there, until you got there. It works just like the loading on some hyper-realistic video games. That's sorted, but then there's consciousness.?

?We still have almost no basic idea behind consciousness and what it is, so it's simulation is stilla mystery. For as long as we don't know about the roots of consciousness, we cannot theorize. But wait; assuming that consciouness is a function of our brains' neurons firing in patterns, we can say that we simply need to simulate the human mind. Easy, right? WRONG! It is extremely hard and not even accuratley done yet, and the whole consciousness thing is hard to ascociate with much of anything. That's a bit weird, and so we shall leave that off for later.

?Another note. Some observed 'effects', such as the Heisenberg Uncertaincy Principle may just be preprogrammed algorithims, and in fact, several quantum laws have been seemingly pointing at a simulation, at least, say the supporters of this side. The rest are losing sleep over it all. The universalspeed limit is our computer's rendering limit, and our expirements are coded features. The power to accurately simulate all of these things must be immense? however, equating to the power of thousands of stars, but itis theoretically possible with extremely efficient energy. Let's go look at some... proof? Actually, most of the aforementioned ideas are - well - just ideas that are in no way provable. and for it to be simulated, we need to not be able to tell the difference, but in that case, this theory falls under the special category of disprovable. But really, it doesn't make a difference, because as long as you don't care, it's same old- same old.
