Weird Tales and the Unexplainable


#161 - Simulation Theory (Weird Tales Revisited)

Ep. 161

We are code.

Bob and Rick revisit the popular topic of Simulation Theory, as mentioned numerous times of previous WTATU episodes, and how it relates to Deja Vu and The Mandela Effect, how it has been portrayed in film, including the 2021 documentary 'A Glitch in the Matrix', and the dangerous paths it can lead to in reference to The Matrix Defence. They also rant about Elon Musk, and talk narcissism, solipsism, and Philip K. Dick.

Rick recommends the films - The Matrix, The Thirteenth Floor, Dark City, Vanilla Sky, Edge of Tomorrow (/Live Die Repeat), and the series Black Mirror.
