Perhaps it’s a high-school research project?

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.
