So I came to life in 1990, right at a point where human civilization had entered advanced technological development.
I could have been born at any period of human development but it happened to be at this epoch.
One feeling I've had that has stuck with me my entire life is thought that I'm inside a simulation and that I am the only real conscious being, you're all my npcs.
If at at a certain point a civilization can create simulated realities and birth conscious entities within them it goes without saying that the likelyhood that I am in one is basically 99.9%.
Even Elon Musk and most scientists agree with the simulation theory.https://www.futuretimeline.net/22ndcentury/2150-2199.htm#holodeck-technology-possible
As virtual reality advances still further, entire worlds are constructed using the smallest quantum units for building blocks. This opens up some profound opportunities in the 23rd century. For example, artificial planet Earths can have their parameters altered slightly – gravity, mass, temperature and so on – then fast-forwarded billions of years to compare the outcomes. Intelligent species evolving on these virtual worlds may be entirely unaware that they are part of a giant simulation.
So then what kind of being and or civilization created this simulation I'm in and for what purpose?
