I keep coming across posts, podcasts, etc. discussing if we’re living in a simulation. None of them discuss why this would matter. Assuming I’m in a simulation how should I change my behavior?

@octesian A simulation would likely be imperfect, so you would have to be more careful about crashing reality

@machado unless the bugs are hidden in quantum noise like our simulation. I think you’re right about being cautious. Even if we knew for a fact we were in a simulation we wouldn’t know if we were body in a jar (a la Matrix), brain in a jar, or complete fabrications.
