Rubénerd Show 320: The world simulator episode (1/18/16)

40:26 – A mini heatwave and monsoon, psychological torture, taking the stairs in lieu of lifts, Sydney’s expensive New Year fireworks, late 1990s DirectX graphics, feeling like the world is a simulation, viewing empty skylines, nihilism and being the only real person, beautiful bird sounds, evening storms, taxis targeting pedestrians, a sufficiently vast universe to harbour other life, evolution, holodecks, philosophical honesty, rendering the world around humans, the observer effect, and that darn Star Trek Prime Directive!

Recorded in Sydney, Australia. Licence for this track: Creative Commons Attribution 3.0. Attribution: Ruben Schade.

Released January 2016 on Rubénerd and The Overnightscape Underground, an Internet talk radio channel focusing on a freeform monologue style, with diverse and fascinating hosts.

  1. Obviously, you are a moran. Get a brain, morans! USA USA!!! 😉

    10 flights of stairs = impressive. Enjoyed, as usual, your descriptions of what you see around you. Other than your jocularity and distinctive voice, this defines you on audio. I wish I could go back and listen to your every podcast.

  2. ‘Moran’ is probably only used on GLP but it DID show up in the last GTA game as graffiti.

  3. Thanks Jimbo, I really appreciate it. I tend to view it more as rambling which I’ve tried to cut down on, but this episode I just ran with it, glad someone liked it!
