The Universe is a Simulation OR The Creator is a Gamer

A guy was at his computer and started up Conway’s game of life. Since this was the newest, latest model of your favorite computer workstation the simulation creatures became sentient.

They discovered they are made of cells.

They said, “Look, THE INFINITESIMAL CELL is always created from NOTHING. If things happens FROM NOTHING, there is NO NEED FOR A CREATOR, so THERE IS NO CREATOR, and besides NOBODY ever witnessed something different THAN THE DETERMINISTIC APPLICATION OF RULES. How smart are we?”

So the guy at the PC said to himself, “Thank you for nothing, guys” and went making himself some coffee.

But before he left, he sent the computer a “restart ALL services” command from the Root Prompt.

And it was DONE.
