Hi Jesse. It's hard to keep up with the discussion!

But I just wanted to say to your previous message - and with this one - I
agree completely.

There's no way to tell when the simulation will change drastically.

For now, I assume this will happen when I "die"... but I have no way of
knowing that for sure - and it could even happen much sooner. (It has
happened to me on a couple of occasions already!) Maybe aliens will land
tomorrow and they'll take me off to other crazy realities. Heck, speaking
of crazy realities, I had a pretty funky dream last night...

Predicting the future may be better left to one's imagination.
