Yes, you right. The universe is an artificial construction designed and built by advanced intelligence beyond our own. The “natural” world that you see isn’t natural at all, but a product of technology. We don’t even live in a physical world. We live in a world that is composed of many layers of rule based abstraction. Our earth is a shared network image, a virtual reality. We exist in an experience of life that is created by a world engine. Speaking in metaphor, we are strings that are trapped on a brane. Literally. Our goal must be, then, to seek true reality.
