Plato, Berkley, You’re Needed on the Holo-Deck

Alright, one thing not too serious.

Seems last year scientists discovered, they think, that we live in a giant hologram. I didn’t really read up on why they would think this. And really, who cares?

Reading this article one immediately thinks of Plato’s Cave, but I also couldn’t help but to think of this little witty limerick from Monsignor Ronald Knox,

God in the Quad

There was a young man who said “God
Must find it exceedingly odd
To think that the tree
Should continue to be
When there’s no one about in the quad.”

Reply:
“Dear Sir: Your astonishment’s odd;
I am always about in the quad.
And that’s why the tree
Will continue to be
Since observed by, Yours faithfully, God.”
