I began long ago to wonder and feel that this existence was a simulation. One such as in a loop to repeat. That we are each either cached variable objects, or runtime created objects. But for my spanning so much and so many lives I've wondered- am I a DLL object constant and core in all the many instances of existence? But forever external and called forth by need?

- So this little gem was written by me when I was in my "Bad Times". I kept it in a clip pad instead of posting it.

It's quite mad, but I'll ask yall - which are you? If none than what are you in this instance for existence under current execution?

-- So this came up as a odd story point for writing a short about if God's CPU injection(emulation) itself into the running code.{A paid job if I could write a creative short for a writer to develop.} What would happen if the AI-Based CPU of existence limited and emulated one of it's cores to walk on earth?

I've turned my many madness' to profit before. But at lest the idea may spark conversation.

I remember the first time I rendered a big level in GameStudio ... it took all night. That morning, I was walking through our garden, and I imagined how much power it would take to render every leaf on every tree and plant and blade of grass ... and all in real-time. God has one awesome computer.

I do sometimes dream where e.g. I found a way to create this amazing simulation game with realistic graphics and you can't tell the difference if its real or not.
And than I woke up and was like frown ahh its was just a dream.

, yeah it does you look different to the real world. E.g. seeing the sky as a skybox or such. grin

Maybe what we call god is the computer.
Problem is, now who is using it?

@pararealist
Here is a fun question if you are correct in your theory . Then are you plugged into the computer or in fact a completely simulated ENTITY with-in one of it's VR simulations ?

Assuming my comment above. Did you dream or slip to another reality in the VR simulation spectrum. Or maybe we are all one person out the VR and then in the VR divided into a world, but sharing a common sub-idea that we created and plugged ourselves into this VR. Thus, we are all simulated ENTITY 'aspects' of a single being experiencing the whole world at one time. OH to live 7 billion lives at once!

there are probably no ports to this computer, and everything is a simulation inside the memory(no hard drives). There is probably only one simulation that we all share, and we call it life.
Still the question arises, who programmed it?

That question is infinitely unknowable. See in that idea - I am typing on a simulated computer, right now, with-in a 'god-like' computer's simulation. However, if this computer of mine can be a simulation and the games I make are a simulation within a simulation, then there is no real way of knowing if the 'god-like' computer is not a simulation with-in a more powerful system. There is also no way of knowing how many layers deep that simulation would go. The only thing that can be purely assumed is that the computers(simulated) each step up in power by a magnitude that can not be achievable within the simulation. So man can never build a computer more powerful than the 'god-like' computer. And a 'god-like' computer can never simulate anything more powerful than it. But it could be a simulation in a great system, the likes of which by our very simulate self-nature we men could never fathom. By that law of simulated-awareness we also can't fathom the 'god-like' computer.


This will dizzy a mind I tell you. But it was a fun little thinking adventure.

A thought:- we probably programmed it, got bored and forgot that we did and are now trapped in the simulation.
