I'm Feeling Rather Pixelated Today.

Among all the things in this world, the idea of life itself, seems to raise the most questions. However, even with all this speculation, it still manages to yield the least amount of conclusive answers. Who are we? and why are we here?, always seem to be in the back of your mind and you think about them from time to time, but that's all they really are, speculation.

Regardless of your religion, or what you believe or don't believe, for the most part, we can usually all agree on one thing. We as human beings, in a physical sense, are real and we can think and act under our own free will.

What if we turned this idea upside down?

What if we, and everything around us, aren't real. What if our lives are one giant simulation? What if our creator is an avid Sims player and controls every aspect of our lives through his insatiable gaming addiction? Sure it seems trivial, but it might not be impossible. Every action in our lives could be all be all played out by someone else, just like we were in the Sims, and we would never even know. We might think that every idea, every action, every thought is ours, but what if they belonged to someone else first?

Is it crazy? Perhaps. Could it be possible? Maybe.
Without definitive answers, anything could be possible.

I'm not saying this is the answer and I am also not saying that it's not. I'm just saying that it is fun to ponder about these things from time to time, since there are no right or wrong answers. Feel free to come up with your own ideas, because wondering about our lives, is what makes life fun and interesting. There will always be room for faith or whatever you may believe in and religion will always fill in the gaps in our knowlege. However, I dont think we should ever
stop speculating.
