Look around you at all the simulation, It almost makes me nauseous.
If we are simulations, the trick for the simulator is to keep us from figuring that out.
Or maybe we are being rendered a test, CAN we figure it out?
"Ah, look at the Earthling humans, aren't they CUTE? They just figured it out.
So now what, should we introduce ourselves or keep up the pretense?"

Imaginary conversation of the simulators🙂
I get a queasy feeling in my stomach just thinking it may be true.
But I would think the simulation would be powerful enough to allow for random events and self-determination and all that stuff.
The simulation would let us take side trips it would not have simulated but lets us run with it. Whatever 'it' is.
