I posted this a while back on the old MKaku forums. I saved it in NotePad and decided to post it again. I just changed a few things and fixed some typos. --- I was thinking about how the Universe came to be, with the atoms, and the subatomic particles, and all the other stuff. Then I thought, why was it created this way? Why couldn't it have been created another way? Then I thought of a few different ways it could have been created. The one that I thought most interesting was a polygon universe. There are no little building blocks that make things up, everything is made of a bunch of little planes connected to each other filled with some sort of substance. That made me think, since we're all ready creating our own universes like that in games and movies, maybe our universe is just another game, but a particle universe instead of a polygon universe. All of the physics of our universe are just programing. Everything was made this way by the developers of the game. They chose to use atoms and subatomic particles. They chose to use DNA to make life forms. They also chose to have many different planets with different races. Some of you may have heard of a type of games called Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG). These are games where a universe is created, and people play together over the internet, there can be thousands of players. They can choose a job, pratice and work on their skills, and acquire new items and money. I think that our universe is just one of these, but much more advanced. Most of us, if not all of us are non-playable characters (NPC). We each have our own artificial intelligence abilities. Some of us are programed to think a lot, some are programed to be athletic, and some are programed to be criminal. That would mean that our personalities are predetermined, and we just use that to do things. We also have memory files, that we can recall when needed. When we die, our memory files are erased, and our personality configuration is reborn. There are also some people in the universe that are not NPCs, they are the actual people playing the game. When a person purchases the game, they are born on a random planet somewhere in the universe. They become whatever race is dominent on that planet. in our case, it would be human. On Mars... nobody would probably spawn becuase there is no life we know of. On some other planet, the dominent life form may be an amoeba. Then that player will be born as an amoeba. That would obviously suck, so when a user dies, he will spawn at a different planet as a different race. Since our AI skills are very advanced, the players are not allowed to discuss anything from the real world in here. If they do, they'd be locked up in an asylum for the rest of their life on this planet. I'm not saying that psychiatrists and asylum workers are admins for the game, but I think that the admins of the game can force psychiatrists what to think and do, so they do lock this user up and make sure nobody believes him or her to keep us from becoming "Self-Aware". Everybody probably knows what a hacker is. They find holes in software and use the holes to their advantage. I think that some of the people who play this game may be hackers. This would explain why certain people have the ability to do things that defy the physics of the game. We have heard of these people. People who possess psychic abilities or telekinetic abilities. They are most likely hackers. People who are much much stronger than the average person. People who can be shot and still survive. These would be the hackers. In our planet's past, I believe to have spotted a few people who were actually users. I do not wish to offend anybody's religious beliefes or anything, I'm merely trying to point out a few certain people that I believe to be players. The first person that I think of as a player would be Jesus Christ. I believe that he was born on this planet randomly. After he was born he wrote hacks on himself, being able to cure the sick, and perform other miracles. Because of this, NPCs began to follow him. In the end, people believe that he will come back. He probably will. He may eventually hack into the game to respawn on this planet again. The other person I believe to be a player would be Adolf Hitler. When Hitler was born on this planet, he talked to other players outside the game. He found a few who were on Earth and in Germany. He started a clan, or a team of people who play the game. He was the leader of this Nazi clan. He decided that he wanted to take over the Earth and make it for his clan only. Obviously he failed and the Nazi clan is mostly gone. We are quite lucky that Hitler, or none of his clanmates were hackers, or we could have lost the war. Well... that's my theory. Any thoughts? Opinions? Attacks?
