Welcome to another week of DJCybertsai’s philosophy on life, on this week’s edition: simulation or not? There is a theory that is going around that we are in a grand computer simulation. So are we or are we not?
The real question you need to ask is does it matter or not? Whether you are in a simulated life or not you still have to live it. If not then it is game over literally or figuratively. What is outside the confines of the universe has no tangible effect on what we have in this universe. The rules change then we adapt, if we don’t same result as before: Game Over.
So only possible thought you might have about being in a simulation is that our future is already set in stone and there is no avoiding our fate. Your way of thinking is what sets you fate in stone. It is not just about positive thinking but also proactive thinking. See a situation and know how you should react of not react to that particular situation. The outcome of a certain situation is not the main point, experiencing it and learning from it is. And that is what living means. You came into this world with no knowledge or experiences and when you leave you have built yourself a little island of knowledge and experiences that is all you very own. So proactive thinking not reactive thinking will determine your fate in life.
Even if this were to be a simulation then it follows certain rules and it is our duty to find those rules and try to break them. As in a computer game you start by following the rules set out by the game and then you begin to explore and try to break the limits of the game just to see what happens. Same goes with life you push you limits and then break them so that the limits on your life increases. They could be limits on your emotions, your physical strength, your mental acuity. Each experience you gain will push those limits further to make you an even better human being (or human simulation if we were in a simulation).
So do not be so caught up about being in a simulation or not the actions you take should be the same. Push the limits and see where you can go. If this universe were a simulation then it is a mighty big one and there is plenty to explore and push yourself into. So do not be afraid of the future you have not written it yet and neither has the simulation.
Until next we meet Stay safe, Stay Cool and keep on simulating. 🙂
