The Russian Doll of Human Resources (Simulations theme)

Post by Mikes »

His finger slipped from the trigger and the room around him dissolved until he stood on a field of white lattices beside a man in a lab coat.

“Let me guess, this was a test to test if I could do it?”

“No, it was to see how you handle finding out it was a simulation.”

~the room dissolved~

“Actually, we needed to see how you could give bad news to a recruit…”

~room dissolved~

“.. to test your simulation shutdown protocols...”

~dissolved~

“…test how you marked a proper procedure…”

~dissolve~

“.. to see if you could pass as human.”

All I'm saying is if the world is a simulation, I hope it's not being run on Mac hardware.

I was waiting for God to show up and say "Actually, this whole planet was a simulation to test if you were capable of making simulations!"

Head hurts now.
