# Universe and overflow error

 Posts: 2,396 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 5/6/2015 2:28:53 PMPosted: 1 year agoIf the universe is just a computer simulation, should we try and cause an overflow error in order to find out if it is, in fact, a computer simulation?#TheApatheticNihilistPartyofAmerica #WarOnDDO

If the universe is a computer simulation then it would be likely the creator would have considered that possibility and adjusted the "code" accordingly. Also, a computer powerful enough and a person or group smart enough to be able to create a simulation this realistic and massive would like be able to prevent us from crashing the simulation.

Not to mention the fact that such an experiment, were it to succeed in showing the universe to be a computer, would likely destroy the universe. That's hardly a worthy project.There are those who believe that irresponsible breeding practices, and the stupidity which fosters them, cannot be stemmed without damage to our freedom. But freedom, and much else as well, cannot tolerate the geometric prolificacy of stupidity. - Chris Langan -

Specialy what would happen to us. #Scarythread.
