    When you die, the simulation ends and you will know a lot of things learned in your life and if on our planet were millions of technicians. The response is yes.

    What a shit video. We live and we die. You experienced nothing before your life and you'll experience nothing after. Get over it.

    We r in a simulation that our brain creates a reality for us by that I mean 99% NPC's that can understand the game of life and write its own history but I'm that 1% who feels conscious enough to know everything is just my reflection in this game of life.

    The one thing is that we cannot know but also if it is a simulation then god does exist

    but what if the world outside the simulation has other rules and the physics and logic of the simulation is just part of the simulation?

    Would being simulated give life MORE meaning? I mean, if we are just here, floating on a rock through space until our inevitable destruction, then, surely being in a simulation would mean that we are being simulated for a reason? A reason that yes, we don't understand, but a higher power does. Maybe we are being simulated as an experiment to save their civilisation? Or maybe, we're just a super advanced video game. Either way, we serve a purpose in this scenario, rather than just to, well, exist🤷‍♂️

    Let's assume we live in a simulation. which...puzzles me a bit because we may have been created by creators who have their own creators and live in their own simulation. Like an onion. Is communication between the layers possible? Presumably yes. And why we cannot evolve to the state of the ones that created us? Hey there is not only the concept of evolution in nature but devolution as well. There might exist some empty seats. So the only thing left to do is ask ourselves: How our creators would like us to behave?

    What if every Galaxy is a different simulation and space is the thing between them. Then even a very intelligent alien civilisation couldn't have access in it, that's why we can't see any Alien. Just because the system that have make has a dark place they haven't access in. SPACE!!!

    Whoever made me definitely spiced things up by making multiple accounts and playing them all at the same time.Though, they didn't have to get the abusive parents mod just to uninstall it everytime they get guilty and install it again just to see what happens ;(
