ARE YOU THE ONE?
BY JAMES MOLE
DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT BELIEVE IN THIS BUT I WOULD JUST LIKE TO PUT IT ON THE WEB.
I would like to start this ‘scientific paper’ (And I use scientific lightly) with my hypothesis then go into details and talk about how nobody can prove me right or wrong. I, or the reader of this paper, am/is the only person alive. I would now like to talk about what I mean by this, I mean that you (Or me as I am conscious, to my knowledge, but let’s just say you for the sake of argument) are the only person truly conscious. This kind of ties in with simulation theory. Everybody else are just ‘bots’, artificial intelligence. They have Human bodies and if you cut an arm of someone else you aren’t going to find metal and wires (Obviously) but this is programmed into the properties of this universe. You are living in a simulation but YOU are the only one TRULY living in that simulation.
Arguments For and Against:
Well, like I said earlier, you can’t prove me right or wrong. How can you know? You can’t. It’s like trying to prove the existence of a God. But if you die, what would happen? Would you just become particles floating through space or would you go to a heaven. This all depends on your religious beliefs of course.
If all of this is true then this must mean that all of history has been created for you. Every murder, every war, every term in office, every bullet fired, and so on and so on. All for you. Quite daunting if you ask me.
But what does it matter? Yes, you would be the only person alive and all of time and space would have been created for your existence but you would just keep on living your life in the same fashion. So, if you are ‘the one’, does it matter?
