What does it mean to be real? Yeah just like Morpheus’s “How do you define ‘real?’” How could we know if we weren’t in the reality we think we are? Does it matter? ie If we aren’t in the reality we think we are do we have any other choice than to behave as if we are—in other words is there any hope of escaping whatever unreality our consciousness exists in? Does the uantum world not make a lick of sense relative to the world as we know it because the ancestors who are simulating us never expected us to get far enough to investigate that scale before we crashed? And now like the writers and directors of an unexpectedly popular and long lived TV show they have to find a way to cobble some convincing story together because their overlords aren

That’s it The book is a knife applied to these uestions; I found the most convincing argument to be the argument that the mind is an artificial thing summoned up onto the physical substrate but I already lean towards that point of view silly as it seems for a collection of animate matte
