  1. Thanks Kevin, give yourself two runs.

    The idea that we may all be living in a simulation has been a mainstay of both the media and philosophy for many years. It is not what one may call a totally unfounded idea seeing as we have no methods of truly disproving it. In fact, it is a lesser known belief in some scientific circles that the universe itself exists as data and we are merely highly complex programming which exists to experience it.
    With this in mind, many will simply dismiss the idea entirely, seeing as we create computers of our own, therefore they find it entirely naïve or even asinine to even consider the possibility of us being simply lines of advanced code in a vast computer which we know as the universe. This idea is known as Digital Physics and serves to put forth the assertion that the entire universe is composed from an unimaginably large program which is itself creating its own smaller programs, these are known to us as the laws of physics and they give rise to all of the phenomenon we are able to observe.
    Going further into this theory, it also seeks to explain how the universe seems to obey certain laws, much like how one of our computers cannot operate outside of its programming since computers are incapable of moving too far outside of certain guidelines. Which can be seen as a very depressing existence in and of itself. It stifles human capabilities since we cannot move outside of some limit which has been imposed upon us. This begins to beg the question of whether or not we should simply give up or resign to our fates, watching the universe pass us by.
    Then again, it also explains other phenomenon such as death. Death has been one of the great mysteries ever since it was closely observed, most likely when we as a species recognized the finality of it. If this theory proves true, then it could be reduced to a few lines of code being deleted or archived. This also explains the laws of thermodynamics and how the amount of matter in the universe remains constant. This is how the universe manages its limited assets in order to continue running. Just like how a computer begins to lag, glitch, or crash when you allocate too many resources into one place; you see this reflected in the so-called simulation around us. These are simply black holes. Black holes are just resources, in this case matter, being squeezed into a space too small to calculate it. This creates a localized crash in the simulation, black holes being dissipated by Hawking radiation.
    I am in no way making the claim that we are just lines of code, I am simply aiming to pose the question. Philosophy is never about the answer, but the questions. People must become comfortable with not knowing the answers to all of our problems. And we must also come to peace with the idea that we may just be at the mercy of some grand programmer.
