Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

Elon Musk and others think we may live in a simulation. What do you think? Is it probable or plausible? This idea that reality is not what it seems has been a feature of philosophy since Plato's allegory of the cave. Basically Plato likened our experience of the world to watching shadows on the wal...

Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

What is the "simulation" supposed to be "simulating"? A "simulated" apple is something that looks like a (real) apple. A "simulated" experience is one that convinces you that it's a real experience. There are always, then, two apples or two experiences, in any situation that implicates a "simulatio...

Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

Elon Musk and others think we may live in a simulation. What do you think? Is it probable or plausible? It would certainly explain time dilation/relativistic phenomena. The inability of the underlying hardware to handle infinite precision/infinite values would cause exactly the kind of behaviour we...

Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

Elon Musk and others think we may live in a simulation. What do you think? Is it probable or plausible? It would certainly explain time dilation/relativistic phenomena. But these have ALREADY been explained, anyway. The inability of the underlying hardware to handle infinite precision/infinite valu...

Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

EM is right to speculate we are living in a simulation. Reality is a simulation simply because it’s nondual. It’s a simulation because the characters are not real. The characters are not watching the movie of life, the characters are being watched by the light that animates them. It’s no different ...

Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

Self-concept is the fundamental simulation. What do you mean here by, 'fundamental simulation'? - Self-concept is each person’s fundamental simulacrum. - Self-concept is the fundamental duality. - Self-concept is a mental construct. - Self-concept is the most precious thing to each and every person...

Re: Basic Human Rights

Age, you're fulla shit. And you're a damned liar. Are you going to offer up ANY proof or evidence that i am "full of shit"? I never said or hunted at that, You never said nor hunted at 'what', EXACTLY? so -- unless you wanna pony up some evidence -- you can just fuck right off to Happy Time Fuck To...

Re: the righteous tyrant

LOOK, you STILL CAN NOT SEE what IS ACTUALLY BEING SAID, and is ACTUALLY True, here. Bummer. Oh well. Also, what is 'god', to you? And, does it differ from 'God'? If so, how? God with a little g is an ontological hypothesis based on crummy evidence and hopeless logic. There are so many versions of ...

Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

What if I have a computer which can simulate things which have never exist, and could never exist in this world. Why must the things which exist in the “external world” exactly match the thing in the simulated world? It isn’t a necessary thing. Great question. And, just as great answer. But, I thin...

Re: What do you think? Do we live in a simulation?

There would be no "place" for the simulation to be running. Yep. That's another way to put it. That's the main problem. Another question I think it brings up is can a character in a simulation be conscious? If we're purely characters in a simulation with no other reality than that, then how can we ...

Again, because if you did you WOULD contradict "yourself".

Re: Basic Human Rights

🖕 So, to you, your 'right' to "own" a toothpick overrides the 'right' for another human being to live, correct? You actually believe that what you call "your property" is more important and overrides any other human being's life, right? Age, you're fulla shit. And you're a damned liar. Are you goin...
