Well, do you think there might be a chance we do?
And if you say no, how would you know?
Would you rather live in "the real world"?
If you really were a "human battery", but never knew, because you believe you're living your normal and happy life... would you care?
Would it make any difference?

Not enough Dejavu. Considering how unstable windows and hardware is... tough to imagine keeping 'this good' of a facade going.

Maybe you can try that magnet thing I suggested to disrupt your 'signal'

The whole battery business is completely laughable. Humans would be about the worst source of energy imaginable.

Stylish movie, though. Big grin

If this is a simulation, we´d only know if there were recognizable inconsistencies or "trap doors" (á la 13th Floor, or, if you will, Time Bandits). A flawless simulation would be undetectable - as well as one that was patched together after the fact if necessary. I can´t remember any evidence for a simulation - but who knows if my memory has in fact remained unaltered...?

Don't worry! I was a little bit harsh too on my reply  Smile I didn't really mean it that way

No, I would just be pissed off to the fact that the program didn't see it fit to make me an airline pilot.

What if this is Hell and we just don't remember what LIFE was really like?

What if the human species is simply some alien's ant farm and we're too stupid to realise it?

Well, if we're living in the matrix, does that mean that our lives are preprogrammed (ie predetermined)?? If so then i want to reboot and start over tyvm!!

I think in reality, mice are ruling the planet and conducting experiments with our bodies.

There is one reason why the whole Matrix thing will never work. What exactly does a machine have to live for? Then again, I suppose one could argue that the human body is in fact a machine, then you get into the whole "what's the purpose of life?" deal...wow, deep thoughts...

My personal opinion is that it won't happen....great movies though! There is one question I had...how exactly do you turn the sky black indefinately?

I'm absolutely positive that the things we refer to as "eye floaters" are in fact flaws in the matrix; we're not seeing floaters but the code of the programme running right in front of us, like in the movie.

Oh well, now that I've typed this, it's time to get back in the phone.

That would probably explain why it´s got an uptime of several billion years already, that its rules are elegantly simple when you get down to the fundamentals - but it would also explain the cryptic and unforgiving user interface... 

(Not to forget the lack of any decent documentation! )
