See this is what I was talking about when I reviewed the Final Fantasy
movie. Many people when you talk about living in a computer/simulation
have this idea that it will be some kind of cheesy unrealistic sim. When
in actuality it can be just as real as the "real world". BTW, you do
realize you may be already living in a sim right now?
