Hi Karl,

You have a good sense of humor. Perhaps
this might be virtual science fiction, or
perhaps a zombie novel or biography.

Hi Folks, 

    For your amusement, delight and (hopefully) comment, I present a paper:

Computational universes 
Karl Svozil 
(Submitted on 12 May 2003 (v1), last revised 14 Apr 2005 (this version, v2)) 
Suspicions that the world might be some sort of a machine or algorithm existing 
``in the mind'' of some symbolic number cruncher have lingered from antiquity. 
Although popular at times, the most radical forms of this idea never reached 
mainstream. Modern developments in physics and computer science have lent 
support to the thesis, but empirical evidence is needed before it can begin to 
replace our contemporary world view.

Onward!
