Monday, November 14th, 19:00: Reality Check

Contemplates the eventual difficulty of discerning reality as a simulation versus reality as natural phenomena that is so well understood that it could just as well be a simulation. Publication in a serious scientific journal, notwithstanding, the prose is thought provoking.
