There are a lot of people who have theorized this, and lots of good literature if you’re interested.

Most recent big names to get thrown into the “Earth is a simulation” pool being Elon Musk I think?

I think it generally is referred to as “the simulation argument.”

For my part, I dig it, but don’t really know what, if any, change that makes for philosophy outside of possibly leaning into nihilism slightly, or being slightly more flippant about preservation?

this is owild. **wild

if im a game then by that logic i am a npc (not player character). if im npc ,to play mself is to do a quest (in game[myself]). if i do quests as npc then i have 2 be a party member for the main characer (the world??") & of course the best way to be w a main charcter in a mission is to be escorted with no gun/sweaposn. it ergo follows that the best way to plya urself is to have a lot of dialog (INTERNAL MONLOOGUE) in missoin so player character wants to protect u & wants to here it alls o they keep u safe and beat the quest n ur alive at the end. therefor the best way to play yourslef is to talk a lot so people like you!.

thats why im on twitter anyway
