My wife and I are pretty well acquainted with one another. Hence, I can truthfully say, I know Jackie.

But you could be just a brain in some kind of Capital Gains Tax. Wait - that doesn't sound right. 

Personally I think we're all just computer simulated agents in a long running pan-dimensional university research project.  I explains so many things; quanta are the result of fixed precision floating point - hence also those weird quantum effects; they're just rounding errors.  Gravity  and Quantum mechanics don't fit well together?  Implemented by different postdocs. Myths of  paradisiacal rewards and eternal life; clear parallel with the myth of tenure-track positions.  And I think we all see where our myths of this all-powerful bearded figure come from.

I call this hypothesis Gradical Skepticism.
