So many people have proposed we're simulated...
Now why would such an extremely advanced civilization / collective
want to simulate us? Is this an unanswered question?
Certainly they have long since
- solved biology, live forever, down/up load their brains against trauma
- solved life and mobility throughout their universe
- lost and forgotten their prehistory
They could sim anything they want. So why sim us?
Because something happened to them, something very big, something
serious and existentially threatening. And now they're *desperately*
trying to learn about death, life, humanity, the individual... something
they lost but is still encoded in them just enough to let them think of
making the sim...
