Question: How would you react if you found that reality was a game!?
I asked this question before but people didn't get what I meant!. As in like in the sims you can't win or lose, its only fun for the player!. everything in life is a game!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

What would there be to react to!?

Even if all this life is *is* a game, it's all I know, and ever will know!. Maybe there is someone playing us all, controlling us!. But the world would be some pretty immense play-set!. Literally billions of people to control!. All at once!.

But hypothetically speaking; I'd just think the person was pretty sick :P

Even though I would imagine it's quite fun to have a number of people to play with, who you can make fight each other, kill each other etc!. Because to that person, we are not real, we are just toys; made to be played with and broken!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Life could be a game!. I wouldn't equate real life with Sims life; real life has more obstacles!. also, Sims games are fun and you can speed through all the boring daily routine!. Yet, real life could be a game!. We could be NPC (Non-playable characters), and the players control causal-chain events in order to get NPC to perform certain actions!. This would be similar to the game "Lemmings," where the player builds stair cases to change the direction of the lemmings, so as to get them to the next level!. Except in the game "real life," the players don't get to build stairs!. They must control "forces"--meaning, anything that would effect our pattern of behavior--so as to reach a predetermined goal!. In this case, you would feel as though you had freewill, but you would actually be following a set of established rules (guided by the "forces")!. The game itself would be very complicated, because you would be working with several groups: conformists on the right path, conformists overachieving the path toward nonconformity, nonworking deviants, and working deviants destroying all the conformist achievements!. The key would be to throw off the balance between the four groups without completely upsetting the group dynamic!. (You need all four groups for positive and negative reactions!.)Www@QuestionHome@Com

Wow, that's a very interesting question!. I've actually thought about this sometimes and wondered if life really was a game!. Because if it was!.!.!. how could we ever know!?

If I found out that reality was really a game, I think I'd be too shocked to feel anything at first!. The concept would still be hard to grasp!.

When I finally realized the fact that my whole life, eveything I'd ever known and experienced, is only a game, than I'd be very angry!. I would panic and feel hopeless because I strongly believe in humans having a purpose!. I have lots of goals I'm working for, so to realize it was just a game would make it harder for me to keep going!. I hope that eventually I'd be able to accept it and look at it positively!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

well!.!.!. i would go do crazy things because if we were in a game wouldn't we just respond when we died!? well in sims is in no way fun i just end up deleting the game!.!.!.is that what god will do!.!.!.!. see this on youtube type "mysterious stranger mark twain cartoon" it is a good question!. A very popular question!. I think many people have played with this through out the ages altho it was more like "what if we are just gods puppets" in a way that is what we are (in some religions) life is just a test!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It would be no different!. Life is a game!. There are people who are bad at the game, there are people who are good!. There are people who start off with more in the game and some who start of with far less!. There are winners and losers!. There are cheaters!. There are surprises for each square you land on!. Finally there's an end!. And sometimes, if people are losing, they throw the board across the room!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

even in sims you get out of it what you put into it, the more time you spend updating and perfecting and specializing and glamorizing the more you're going to get out of it, if you play once a week you're not going to get very far are you, same as life!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

it actually IS a game!. It's called THE MASTER GAME!.

The goal is to wake up and move into a higher dimension!.

That's sounds spacey but a higher dimension means that the entire EARTH is your free and open PLAYGROUND!!Www@QuestionHome@Com
