Favorite Computer Simulation Quotes

1. "The first human-to-computer uploads of 2100 will prove that a perfect simulation is the thing being simulated - that a silicon soul doesn't need a physical body to inhabit. So eventually everybody who ever lived will be resurrected inside a living machine indistinguishable from God. Isn't it amazing what you can do with unlimited hard-disk space?"

2. "After dinner the babies get fussy and Min puts a mush of ice cream and Hershey's syrup in their bottles and we watch The Worst That Could Happen, a half-hour of computer simulations of tragedies that have never actually occurred but theoretically could. A kid gets hit by a train and flies into a zoo, where he's eaten by wolves. A man cuts his hand off chopping wood and while wandering around screaming for help is picked up by a tornado and dropped on a preschool during recess and lands on a pregnant teacher. ("Sea Oak")"

Today's Quote

Às vezes me lembro dele. Sem rancor, sem saudade, sem tristeza. Sem nenhum sentimento especial a não ser a certeza de que, afinal, o tempo passou. Nunca mais o vi, depois que foi embora. Nunca nos escrevemos. Não havia mesmo o que dizer. Ou havia? Ah, como não sei responder as minhas próprias perguntas! É possível que, no fundo, sempre restem algumas coisas para serem ditas. É possível também que o afastamento total só aconteça quando não mais restam essas coisas e a gente continua a buscar, a investigar — e principalmente a fingir. Fingir que encontra. Acho que, se tornasse a vê-lo, custaria a reconhecê-lo."
