I have been thinking about cause and effect.
I notice a lot of effects and much of the time the causes
are realized and documented long after the effect.
In eighth grade the science teacher asked the class "is the world particulate or continuous?"
Now I ask is the world real or a video game?
Could we be Mario trapped in a video game like flat land.
We can't escape because we only exist in the game.
There is no way for us to view the universe out side the game.
We could look for bugs in the game and may have found some already
to prove the idea.
Is there an experiment that will prove you are moving through
space without looking out the window? Yes, Foucault's pendulum.
If you find aliens that are light years away, watch out there
is a galactic protection tax that will come in the mail soon after, from them.
