I found out recently that scientists in Silicon valley are going to be spending billions of dollars in the hope that they can prove their theory that we live in a computer simulated world:

“Musk is just one of the people in Silicon Valley to take a keen interest in the “simulation hypothesis”, which argues that what we experience as reality is actually a giant computer simulation created by a more sophisticated intelligence. If it sounds a lot like The Matrix, that’s because it is.”

If i’m honest, although I tend to overthink far too often about the meaning of life and offer up these bleatings concerning existentialism and absurdism to all and sunder, i’m concerned about this…mainly because it may be true… and what happens if it is true? The whole world will go mad that’s what. As if it isn’t mad enough already.

Bit dodgy I reckon. But fun I suppose.

On the flip side, think how many Blackjacks you could buy with a billion pounds – you could build an army of ’em and use them to take over the ‘World’. Whatever that means.
