I don't think this is a simulation. The server hasn't crashed in billions of years and the amount of processing power needed to simulate my crazy cat just does not exist in any way, shape or form.

If it was running Linux I should be allowed to see the source code to this simulation!

You're just unaware it crashed. Like when a game crashes and you resume from you last save. The in-game characters would have no idea a crash happened :shiftyninja:.

If this is a stimulation, the computer must have a virus.

The Double-Slit Experiment
When a camera observed the electrons, they acted as particles. However, when the no equipment was used to observe the electrons, they acted as waves and particles simultaneously.

I watched the above a while ago, particles change behaviour when watched


I saw that too.. Pretty mind bending stuff, nothing better than a nice mind bending though!
