While sitting in class one day I had a thought. I wondered if I might really be connected to machines, experiencing a synthetic reality. But for what purpose?
Could it be, I wondered, that this life experience is a just class? In some distant future could the real me be experiencing historical events?
What better way would there be to learn?
Fifty years later I still think about it.
I think I understand now.
The future me may not be human.
Make this Christmas a good one. There won't be many more of them.
