Living in a simulation

Question from the Internet:

“If we’re in a simulation then wouldn’t it be more favorable to just end all life on earth? I mean anesthesia is plant-based and we still don't fully understand its science...”

I am not sure why ending all life is the solution, even if we are in a simulation.

If we were in a simulation and we became aware of being in a simulation that also means we can start examining, studying this simulation, and learn how to use it, control it, even get out of it.

It is like receiving the disheartening diagnosis of suffering from a terrible, chronic disease plaguing us for a long time. The diagnosis is unpleasant, on the other hand as a result we can search for and apply the cure, and as a result, we can become healthy.

We are living in a fully manipulative Matrix our own selfish, subjective ego projects for us. It is a very unpleasant recognition to learn that everything we have ever done until today — both as humanity through history and as individuals in our lives — was blindly conducted, forced on us by our ego and that knowingly, unknowingly we have always succeeded, survived at the expense of others.

On the other hand, now that we have recognized it, if we accept this humbly, we can finally learn how to liberate ourselves from our ego and start a completely new, truly;y free, truly Human life as a result!
