MrLlamaLlama Posted March 16, 2008 Share Posted March 16, 2008 You never directly asked why...you said "what". I even said "We know WHAT causes gravity, but we don't really know WHY it causes gravity." That was the original question from Wheelman101 - he doesn't understand how gravity is possible or why it works. Sure we have figured out how to use it, and how to calculate it, and figured out what causes it, but not fully how it exerts a force on things far away from it. There are so many things ridiculous about this whole concept but here's the best one: If the 'beings' knew that we knew that we were a simulation, wouldn't they alter something because that knowledge on our part could change the 'experiment's' outcome? If it was an experiment, they would probably only change one thing each time, and see how everything reacts. This could be something small like changing people or situations or things like that, or something much larger like how far away the earth is from the sun, or something how strong gravity is, or the distribution of matter and antimatter (there's a lot more matter than antimatter). If we were a simulation, surely 'they' would know we know... or think... and just wipe our virtual brains so we're none the wiser? TIP: Make a bigass sign telling 'them' to go die or something and see what happens... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
