    Sometimes I wonder. Isnt it amazing that there are people all over the world that are living their life through their perspective and not yours. I sometimes wish I was some kind of out-worldly being that could enter their brains and see what they are seeing, think what they are thinking, hear what they are hearing.

    I would like to live a different life after I die, no matter how much better or how worse than my current life but to be given the chance to experience something again.

    I dreamed that the whole world was created for me, just a game, I am the only player, and everyone else is a smart AI. Now that I think about it, it probably means I'm a huge narcissist. I wish I could know every secret, no matter how unimportant it was to the whole world.

    It probably sounds lame and I sound like a douche, but I think a lot of people think about this, even the dumb ones(hence movies/games)

    I don't understand the title. What is real life?

    Btw, what if you're the smart AI and I'm the player? :O

    What if we are all smart AI, and the player is God playing an advanced version of Spore?

    I'm not saying it's an impossible theory, or a possible theory, but I wanted to shoot in that it is a theory detrimental to life in general. Why? Because it assumes you are the only one who's real and that everyone else are expendable (to some extent, at least). A theory very similar to the one where everything is a figment of your imagination. How could you care for something that you believe not to be real?

    Being omnipotent is a dream pretty commonly shared.

    The only question is: what would you do with your omnipotence?

    I sometimes like asking people this because the answer can tell quite a lot about any person.

    There was also this weird quantum theory that i did not completly understand... but did it basicaly mean that when you look at something it is there and when you don't it is not there?... but... whatever... something...

    I mean that kinda sounds like your thing, although it's really confusing i think i can imagne it a bit. Like in a videogame where things are loaded once you face them... and when you aren't they're just raw data waiting to be sent to you eyes again.

    Re-al .. Li-fe?
    What's that? I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about!
    I consider this thread spam. (I've never heard of this .. Re-al Li-fe before)

    Might be pony subculture.

    On a serious note, life is amazing, I think we can all agree on that.
