Is perception of our world or how it was created important? I actually think not. I’m not saying thinking about it isn’t important, but rather , knowing this in advance can ease the torment such thoughts can cause. Personally, I assume matter exists, always has, and always will. I also assume that any matter than can replicate with mutation will eventually form intelligent life and life is the purpose of existence. Therefore, any moral choice must be founded on the basis of which choice will lead to an outcome that is most likely to perpetuate intelligent life. However, even if the premise of this reasoning changings, whether we are a simulation, creation of a higher power, or matter simply exists into perpetuity, the outcome does not change. If we are a simulation, the moral choice is to feed the algorithm as best we can. If we are created by a god, we should help prolong the creation, or if we just accept our existence, we should continue to evolve. Based on this simple foundation, to always make the decision that is most likely to perpetuate humanity’s existence, I’ve found you can answer questions of morality that otherwise seem impossible to answer.
