    Paula: link works fine for me too - you might want to check whatever computer you are using - sounds like your browsing may be getting hijacked.

    He needs to get a job on a construction crew and toughen up his girly hands and his mind. All multiversers have nothing to make them experience 'reality'.

    Can't speak to his hands, but there's nothing wrong with his mind. The statistical analysis that make up the "3 Options" hypothesis is sound.

    Yeah it is funny how all that virtual reality stuff disappears when you are getting shot at or riding a load of steel across the top of a skyscraper under construction. You suddenly realize that the mind is a linear function of survival strategies and all else really doesn't matter.

    Didn't Jeff recently make some veiled reference regarding a new wife having been a porn star in a prior life?

    Sounds a bit too coincidental for me :wink:

    I understand what your driving at, but this theory isn't trying to suggest that life (and the brain that experiences it) is any less real in the hypothesis presented. In the 3rd theoretical option, the computer virtualization is so precise that it models everything... down to the very last neuron. So, whether this model existed in a computer model or the physical universe (and some would even argue that at the quantum level, these would be exactly the same) you would still experience your world in exactly the same way... right down to fear, pain, and death: no difference. The scientist states as much at the very end of the vid.

    Reason?

    My first click on her ADV write up went to a major comic porn site. I deleted, tried the link a again and read her article and even did a like at the bottom. Weirdness there.

    Same thing happened to me. First click on the link went to Porn. :huh
    Got out of there, closed the browser. Tried again and got to the article. Perhaps someone is messing with that site. My anti-virus did not trigger an alert.

    Yeah I got it, but the bigger question is are you a 1 or a 0. Life is a binary process.:lol3

    I think I'm a 1, but I'm sure a lot of people think I'm a 0.
