What if the December 21st 2012 apocalypse really did occur, but at the last moment, before it happened, all of humanity and everyone else were plugged into a virtual machine, that allowed us to live our lives as normal in a simulated reality; a simulated version of Earth? Ala the Matrix? And in the real Earth, it is now a barren, post-apocalyptic wasteland overrun by mutant versions of ourselves; and our souls were plugged into the simulation as to live life still in this new Earth. Everything feels, smells, tastes, looks, and sounds like Earth, but it is just a simulation? Now, I'm not saying this is true because even I think it's on the verge of being considered crazy, but it is just an interesting thing that I thought about.

I think I would have known if I had been "plugged" at the last moment.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Yeah, but I didn't fill in all the details in my theory. You don't realise you are plugged in, because you can't tell the difference between Real Earth and Simulated Earth.

I am a very light sleeper, trust me, I would have known, ask my husband.

I don't believe this because I think I would of chose a better reality.

you don't have to, it's just a little theory that probably isn't correct. And plus, ironically you don't believe my theory because you didn't read it properly. The simulation theory doesn't mean you choose your reality; you stick with the one you have right now, which is this one; Earth.

If there is no way to distinguish, then there is no way to know.  Distinguish = know.

By the way, I think its probable that we've been in a virtual world ever since the Big Bang, and whatever simulation produced it was in its own simulation, and so on, maybe or maybe not ad infinitum.

Yeah I agree. And if we have been in a virtual world since the Big Bang, then is God simply a product of simulation and isn't real?

"Uncounted worlds constantly rise and fall, each the dream of a Brahma who is the dream of a Brahma."

I would like to take Buddhist credit for that but it was a Hindu who said it.

Even if we are in a simulated version of Earth, I don't care. But if it's true, what happens to us when we die? If we are in a simulation, when we die do we wake up in the real, apocalyptic Earth? Oh no.

I would say more than likely you will stretch, unplug yourself, and say, "Well, as lives go, that one was just average."

It's also possible I created the simulation, thereby making me your god.

If so, then hello God.

I like creeping myself out by thinking up strange philosophical theories like the simulation one.
