Also, what feels to us who are álive in the game' as years in Earth time..may actually be days to the player in the advanced civilization enjoying the hi-tech virtual/alternative reality experience (remember the old human saying "1,000 earth years is but a day to God"?)..
You can ignore my ponderings on this subject if you consider yourself 'more educated' than me...but you are certainly not now-nor will ever be - more educated than the genius Albert Einstein (who thought our 'reality'was a complex illusion) and Stephen Hawking...and he says everything I speculate above is more likely to be the truth behind our existence than any other theory currently being pondered.
..so you still think the 'super advanced computer simulation' theory is 'far-fetched'? When you put many things we are told to be ábsolute truths' under closer scrutiny...you find that they are not.
