    I know that sounds crazy but Elon Musk thinks so and he's a real smart guy..

    But is there evidence akin to the cat walking twice past the doorway as in The Matrix?  No.That would be a very crappy simulation.

    Maybe simulation is the wrong word. Perhaps God is dreaming. Or 'all this' is in the demented mind of a Multi-Dimensional being as in the movie Identity and that's why life on Earth is a nightmare because it is.

    And you know how nightmares are. Repetition. So As History Repeats Itself to all of us, to the demented dreamer, it would be like watching reruns.

    Or. NOBODY exists except YOU and you are in a coma and can't dream so stuck in limbo in your own being!

    So what evidence is reality following a script? Perhaps Kid Rock's first stump speech that makes Trump look not so bad after all.

    Censored speech. Kid Rock:

    Now compare that with the movie Idiotcracy:

    You tell me. What do you think?

      I think there is no evidence to believe it.  I think if it is true it doesn't matter at all, and is in fact indistinguishable from a non-simulation scenario.  I think that voluntarily believing in such a thing can only cause depression and unhappiness, with no positive results.

        Yeah, I think Elon Musk is wacko myself.  He wants to terraform Mars for humans also. The guy is like a evil genius.

          Terraforming Mars shouldn't be that difficult.  Drop a few comets on it, sit back and wait a billion years.

            The billionaire supervillain clarified his idea to terraform Mars. He doesn’t want to bomb Mars. He just wants to bomb the sky above Mars every few seconds. Mashable reports:

                "What I was talking about," said Musk, "was having a series of very large, by our standards, but very small by calamity standards--essentially having two tiny pulsing suns over the poles.”

            Is that what all the solar panels are for, Elon Musk?

            Musk says that the two “tiny suns,” formed by fusion bombs, would warm up Mars’ frozen carbon dioxide so that it turns into gas that could help capture heat, creating a greenhouse effect on Mars. - … -nuke-mars

            What could possibly go wrong?

      Well it feels like a dream. Maybe it is.
