Billionaires secretly funding research to break us out of the Matrix
Prove that it isn't.
Hmmm..."At least two of Silicon Valley’s tech billionaires are pouring money".
Apparently the "pouring money" metaphor has something to do with a drain in a sink. I for one will volunteer, of my own free will, to be a stopper in that drain and collect all the monies that are headed in that direction as my contribution to their cause.
They can simply mail me their checks (thus eliminating the middle man), and I would also hope that their generosity extends to paying the taxes on said monies (not like some billionaire whose name that I won't mention).
Perhaps the axiom "no good deed goes unpunished" is, after all, wrong if they will only share with those less fortunate; since they are billionaires, that's quite a sizeable group of humanity (the less fortunate that is).
I cannot guarantee that I will share my good fortune with the ALL the other posters on this board. But I will dangle the carrot that is a technical possibility that is a real as life itself.
If I'm not real, where did this hangover come from?
Time is an illusion. Especially lunch time.
Time is a man made concept, too.
I know that money is an illusion. I think I've seen it, but it never seems to some my way.
