Focus aufbahrung. The topic is is the universe a simulation. You're not being taken seriously as it is without being distracted by trivia that enters your field of vision.

Oooh substantive YT research. The world holds its collective breath while you hunker down for 3 weeks and learn how to write a coherent sentence.

Belly up to the error bar, gents. I’ll warn you though, the selection is spotty, the menu confusing, and the service slow.

So... have you now alighted on a coherent falsifiable hypothesis in support of our universe and all within it being a simulation? Is all mundane knowledge about to fall into the dusty caverns of ancient folk-lore?

Three weeks is up already. Could it be that the "cruel sands of time are denying aufbahrung any cover".

It's not so much that the world is a simulation but that the players within it are too, which is why we're all fucked.

It's evidence-free assertion Saturday!

Roll up one and all - declare reality to be whatever takes your whimsical fancy, and not have to substantiate a damn thing you say! Hooray for post-post-modernism and zealous over-confidence in one's own ability!

Is it safe to say aufbahrung that, despite your claims, you did nothing of the sort you'd promised in the intervening 3 weeks and haven't got a single sound reason yet for your statement of faith that the contention that the universe is a simulation is a 'better' explanation than all that other knowledge which is primed and ready to drop down in a heap of inconsolable shame?

Well, fancy that.
