Those are very interesting pages. The only problem with the whole thing is that not a single conjecture can be set up as a scientic hypothesis to test for validity. Design an experiment to find a multiverse. By definition it is separate and unknowable. And unless someone hands you the red pill, you'll never know you're in a simulation.

And in the end, if there are mutliverses, or we are part of a giant computer simulation, ala The Matrix, then it still begs the question: Where did it all start, and why?

I'm reminded of the young Buddhist monk, questioning his teacher. "Master," he says. "What holds up the world?"

"A giant turtle holds up the world," replied the master.

"And master, what holds up the turtle?" asks the student.

"It sits upon the back of another turtle," replied the master.

"Then master, what holds up THAT turtle?" asked the student.

"Don't bother," replied the master. "It's turtles all the way down."

I have to agree with you Strong Eagle; from what I remember the program suggested that dreams were our real lives and our real lives only a dream! However, to my way of thinking if you were merely sleeping and dreaming which we all do apparently every time we sleep, you are still very much in life as we know it. As a colleague once said to me "by the time these things (life) are understood we will probably died a long time ago" if of course we have not succeeded in annihilating ourselves first.
