Human Conciousness Is an Alien Simulation Entertainment Thing

We are all going to die one day, apparently. What happens after might be super weird.

I've been told by the nerds at the hospitals that one day I'm going to die. But I never trust a person wearing white after Labor Day. These doctor people ... it's all an experiment. So the fact that we're going to die is unfortunate, but fear not. There might be a whole bunch of awfulness that comes afterwards. This piece is about my theory of what might occur when we power down.

There's got to be a chance that we exist in a simulation that is run or being experienced by a single individual entity or a group of 'things' gathering for entertainment. They could be aliens or they could be advanced future humans trying to experience the past in the most in depth way possible. Basically, I'm saying that our universe and, more specifically Earth, is some organic computer simulation used to entertain a group of things as if this were a Dungeons and Dragons campaign.

Think like a video game. For example: The advanced god/alien things sit down around some weird orb that acts as the power source. They set up the time period of what they want to experience and how much they wish to experience by setting the year and the amount of souls they'd wish to inhabit. Is any of this making sense? ANSWER ME. I will hear you.

The gamers, we will call them, would set the time period to say 6,000BC and they would live and experience life through the senses of our ancestors and through the advancement of mankind until they get bored or had to stop for dinner. If they even need to eat dinner. But I believe that an advanced human race would find use in experiencing earlier simulated eras and milleniums. It'd be the ultimate history lesson. This simulation fad could grow from the interest in the past by sifting through the digital information of each individual. Every text we send, every website we visit, every credit card purchase we make, every location we travel to while our GPS is on, is just digital data that could be pieced together to learn a ton about who we were and what we did.

Think about what spelunkers do to the Pyramids. That's someone's grave, dude. I guess time makes it okay to play with skeletons and stuff. Betrayal is more like it.

If some ancient King or Queen of England's hidden treasure chest was dug up and it was filled with diaries and journals, we would read the heck out of that. It'd be published and sold by some snake who already has way more money than me and would get more moneys from me to learn about what the King or Queen's secret love affairs and thoughts were. Why does no one in the current era of earth realize that all your digital data is going to be put on blast by your descendants. Hacking old cell phone files and internet traffic will be taught in elementary schools.
