You know, I recall reading on some Singularity-related web page that since possible sim-universes
were so numerous, there is a very high likelihood that we are in one. I'm not sure this is
provable, but it would explain a *lot*.
Results desired by whom, by the way? How do you know they are desirable? This discussion is *all
about* control, and Burroughs said "Control is the ultimate drug." Maybe too much is bad for you.
