    What would your life look like if you were a character in a computer game?

    A number of independent thinkers and scientists are leaning into this idea – or the broader one that our current reality could simply be a simulation in a computer. It makes for an excellent thought experiment. Not for what you can do to change this – you are the ghost in the machine if we accept the idea – but if you are simply a character in a grand simulation, a great game or story, which future or story would you choose for yourself?
