    She is not that talented. She would be an orphaned program fragment, wandering around.

    so, that the matrix is real? we are just game avatars in some sim game where there is no rebirth/respawn points. no save points either.

    This is a recycled version of the old “How do you know you’re not a brain in a jar being kept alive by a mad scientist who is stimulating you to think you are perceiving the world?” One fallacy here is that the person raising the question wants to cast doubt on all human knowledge while relying on the fact you both know what are brains, jars, and mad scientists. Another fallacy is the fact that the question involves an assertion (that you might be just a brain in a jar) with no evidence. You need evidence to know and evidence to doubt. Arbitrary assertions without evidence are not worth listening to.

    Years ago the show Red Dwarf turned out to be a computer game.

    It looks like that Zagnut is might actually drop one of these years.

    The answer was 42. The question was what is 6 * 9?
    The mystery is what was the process used from the question to the answer.
    I believe it is the same algorithm used in computerized tax packages and determining the BCS football bowl lineup.

    Actually, it’s because of this article: http://news.discovery.com/space/are-we-living-in-a-computer-simulation-2-121216.html

    The theory that we live in a simulated universe created by our descendants is actually being tested by some University of Washington scientists. But even if they prove it is possible, that doesn’t mean it is happening for certain.

    John broached this same topic on Facebook. It reminds me of the novel THE HOMEWARD BOUNDERS, by Diana Wynne Jones. In the book, we’re all pieces in a game being played by a race called ‘them.’ The world is the board, and there are many different levels to move through. Good book. I recommend it.

    But if the tales of reincarnation are true then the programs get new avatars and reintegrated in the system.

    Of course another possibility is that aliens are studying us our entire history recreated and running in in such a simulation. I’d prefer human or post human descendent’s doing it.

    I just hope no one reboots until after my code/script finishes running.
