    Emm ...Re-read my post and found I said it wrong.What I meant is not about you or anyone's fear of being wrong.I was not talking about that.

    Not that anyone fears being wrong but it's just unfair to the people judged.
    Leaning towards denial of free will dosent neccessarily mean shrinking of decision space.Firstly it denies the hypothesis that there's a decision space that one can have impact on.Second,it focus on "what"makes decisions instead of how one makes decisions.

    I meant you judge too soon on people's motive.You might be wrong.
    *cue in Mr.TOE* I haven't reached the part where he explains free will and I assume that you agree with his perspective.Until I have enough understanding of that part ,I will just stand as a free will denier.😌😈

    Well,that's a quick judgement on his intent of his theory.And yes the theory denies free will,does that make it wrong?0.0

    I agree, it's not always true. I was playing off of the idea that the only true wisdom is admitting you know nothing. I prefer the greyness, the unlimited possibilities and I regard those who claim to possess black and white truth in a universal sense as being afraid of the grey and lying to themselves. But, alas I am a hypocrite and I sometimes attempt to grind reality down to a clearly definable point.

    I don't know about him, but I'm jumping down the rabbit hole. Why not. While giving your general ideas considerable thought, I've never explored them in detail.

    True, and that's why this thread has relevance.

    He did not. His answer was ambiguous, if/then.

    From the Buddhist point of view, attachment to sensory apparatus is a contradiction in terms.

    I know almost nothing about quantum physics. I am not a scientist, I am variously an artist, a journalist and a crazy person. I have nothing to offer you but the view from outside the box, and I have a somewhat better than average understanding of buddhistic stuff.

    Of course he doesn't want anyone to believe him. He has nothing new to say, but he's honest enough to admit the EGO tripper is Tom Campbell.

    He is a mildly interesting and provocative writer and lecturer.

    No one is compelled to be a Buddhist, but I can tell you flat that any Buddhist would find the simulation hypothesis hardly worthy of a chuckle.

    Have your simulation experience if you like. You are welcome to it and I have no problem with that. It's just not for me.

    I watched a 50-minute video program called God Science Episode One, in which Tom Campbell was quoted a few times.

    Campbell, NASA physicist, is a very smart man and has some interesting things to say, but I must draw the line at the simulation hypothesis.

    Eventually our infatuation with this new toy of ours, the personal computer, will moderate to a sensible level. The personal computer is nothing more than a communications device. The idea of virtual reality is really cool and fun and all, but I don't think I would enjoy virtual ice cream.

    If I happen to walk barefoot through the grass in my back yard, and the toes of my right foot happen to land directly in some fresh, warm, squishy dogshit, I know for certain that I do not exist in a simulation.

    My overall impression of the video is that it was roughly patched together by some folks who want their religion to be right, and that the project is not at all Buddhistic, and has even less to do with Zen.

    Sorry about being a Zen hardass here, but I hope you will appreciate my intellectual honesty.

    Fear also can be a positive motivator, but that is a harder road.

    Yes. Much better choice of words. Thanks for "correcting" it.
