‘Universe’ is indeed very big and nobody knows exactly how big it is. I was just thinking about the same and then came across some amazing and interesting theories. So, I present you the ‘My views on The Universe’ series where I will tell you what I thought. Here is the first part of the same.
Okay! So, my first part is based on an assumption that the whole Universe is a game controlled by a computer. And there are many such games, i.e. there are many universes. So, if there is a computer then naturally someone has to control it. And that controller is the user of the computer. Now you can call that user ‘God’, super power, Supreme Intelligence or anything you want. This user has designed our universe and is controlling it on every step.
The Universe is very big for us but to the user it is finite. All the solar systems, galaxies, stars, etc. are small-small programs. You can consider them as mini games created by the user. And then we have the planets as the main part of the game where everything takes place from evolution of life to destruction of the same. The main part lies here! The user has programmed the life on planets in a very interesting way. He has also designed so-called ‘Aliens’. And to us Aliens are out of reach because the user has not given us enough privileges to discover them yet. May be if he desires to change our attributes then we will be able to reach the aliens. Each and everything is minutely detailed using the most complex physics calculations and the best game engine with the best computer processor. There are yet many things for us to discover which are given ‘hidden’ attributes. When the user will remove the attribute we will discover those facts and things.
The best creation of that user is ‘human’. He has given humans the most important and beautiful gift of intelligence with speech. Now you have to realize that speech without intelligence and intelligence without speech are useless! So, it is a plus point for humans.
The most interesting part comes now! Okay! So, we are a part of this game called The Universe. It is obvious that the characters in any game don’t know who their user is because they are designed to only think about the story of the game and they only do the work for which they are programmed. The same applies to us. If we are a part of this game then we, too, don’t know who is using us. But there is some user who is sitting there and controlling us. He is even updating, upgrading, fixing glitches of the game. The programming of the game is so good that it does not crash and if it does then it can cause havoc in the entire Universe.
The story of Universe is already decided and it is up to the user of the computer to lead it. So, the end of the Sun, Earth and various other planets can be a mission for the user. Sounds interesting, right? And then discovery of life of other planets also are missions.
Actually the game never ends. There is a lot of customization involved in it and can last till infinity if the user wants or he can simply delete the game. This can be related to the GTA series. The GTA series also does not end after all missions are complete. Instead we are free to roam around and do whatever we want. Same is with this Universe. It is up to the user.
So, this is the 1st part of my imagination. There is more to this series and I will post more parts soon. Till then just keep imagining what the next part will be about. Have a nice day!
