ok.. so, I finally found some useful sources of procrastination..
watched "JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKES BACK" (thus completing my "Kevin Smith" film festival.. and y'know wot? dunno if I really discovered anything there either.. except perhaps a few more in-jokes..)
anywaze, I then stumbled upon this nifty little site..
THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE MATRIX
(once you click this link, click the "philosophy" link on the site..)
here's where they got several leading philosopher stoner types.. bribed 'em with heaps of money, and used them as an unconventional bit of promo for the Matrix films.. they each wrote little essays on the philosophy of the MATRIX.. all them tripped out notions of reality / surreality.. the dream world and the real world.. all that fun mindfukt stuff :-)
(good for killing some time reading..)
which got me thinking about this altogether SPOOKY article I read in a science magazine once..
apparently some mathematical statistician dude, figured out.. that in all probability.. we're mostly likely, now.. living in a MATRIX.. and none of this we see is real.
His reasoning - if intelligent beings would oneday come to develop computer technology powerful enough to duplicate the universe in a simulation.. (and sooner or later this would be possible somewhere), then.. in all likelyhood.. this technology would be used many times over.. to create millions of artificial realities.. since there's only ONE actual reality, and millions of FALSE realities.. chances are much more likely.. that, according to probability we are in fact living in a FALSE reality..
which.. when you come to think of it.. is a damn spooky thought..
most likely, NONE of this is real.. ;)
not only could your world, your perception be false.. but also your very being, your soul.. everything you know.. could merely be strings of code, in some computer program.. and how would you know otherwise? since you only KNOW the false reality?
oooh yes.. freaky stuff :-)
(is your brain broken yet?)
