It's not clear if Reagan launched first or some last gasp from the Soviets, but it happened. Nearly everyone "died", probably around 87 or 88.

The simulators were not at all prepared for this use of the free will they'd built into the system, and we are currently experiencing some glitch or software back-up where consciousness has continued and new people are still generated... but we are not in the Earth program that had run for millennia. It's not even clear the sims are still aware we are here. Stuff like the sudden explosion of "transgenders" is just data deterioration as the code for individuals degrades in new iterations. We are wheeling farther away from the original and you can feel it.

We're going to see crazy stuff that diverts wildly from our 'earth' expectations

all of this 80s nostalgia, even from characters who didnt exist then, is just a longing for our correct program. we dont know where tf we are now and are probably just projecting "earth" onto wherever this is, and our time programming is still ticking, though sometimes unpredictably

Its like repeatedly asking someone "what would happen next" and we are living in that guess, but its getting hazier and looser

i wonder if there were some survivors (senator biden may have been one, mogul donald trump another), and they can enter into "here" (wherever we are) as some avatars.

Except that everything went off the rails in 2012 and beyond, not in the 90s.

i thought i was just copying the matrix. is this the rp1 backstory?

no, the 90s were still able to be pieced together believably because we could extrapolate from our recent experience of reality. our brains are pretty good at getting to H, after seeing ABCDEFG. But we are like up to Q now, and thats why things are really unreal-feeling, like someone is just taking a wild guess at what life 35 years after the last known event would be like

we are building reality on top of previous "pretty decent" guesses, and its acceleratingly ludicrous

i think the barrier between human-non human will be dissolved pretty soon. Like some woman will give birth to an animal or a computer will have a baby, and after some initial dissonance, we will just proceed like of course that happens

rp1 backstory: modern life is a total shitshow, humanity has run out of fuel so everyone lives like shit. However, humanity basically lives in the Matrix, created by some dude who was obsessed with the 80s. He dies and post-mortem a game he created will determine who owns and controls the Matrix. Of course, given who he is it is all about stupid 80s trivia.

oh yeah i remember a bit about how the characters have to answer clues and riddles about 80s trivia.

i think our real clues are mandela effect stuff, amplified by our general malaise and discomfiture.

it would be one thing for people in their 50s to long for a time decades ago, but its bizarre for people in their 20s to love 1980s stuff. and the more you think about it, like with mandela effect phenomena, you can kind of remember the nuclear apocalypse. Its like at the end of the reel, but we always stop the movie just before. Youve caught a glimpse of it though - the bright light, the annihilation, the cities falling. If youre old enough, you really did live through it - or die in it to be factual. But its deeply suppressed. It's there though. It happened
