So What If This Is Just A Big Simulation?

I love the idea of what if the world and the Universe is just a simulation?

Indeed, what if it is? What does it change? If the illusion feels real, then the feeling is just as real as what we perceive to be real, whether or not.

Someone asked me what would I do if I walk in a place and saw a fight. Do I go in and punch everything that moves or do I take a step back and see how I can help bring the situation back to a middle ground? Obviously, no one wants to make a situation worse.

That question was asked in the greater context of those who do not believe human activity has impact environmental changes. Today's COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of traffic has shown that human behavior has negatively impacted our environment. It also shows that whether we believe it or not, why add to what is a mess and getting worse for us?

So what if it is just a big simulation? I'd still rather do my best and not add anything unneeded to a situation. But that opens up a can of worms as to those who feel they have been told to act by less than angelic beings. And this brings us to another monkey wrench.

"Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything
 has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same;
 opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree;
 extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes
 may be reconciled."--The Kybalion.
