Slither World

space experiments
  [vote for,

Maybe the world is just a 3d version of slither.io, with all of our agency just the result of the movement of all of the other agencies and their choices to turn left or right or up or down in pursuit of the poop of other slither monsters.

If that is so, then you could have experiments in space where you create as smooth and homogeneous as possible giant orbs with agencies on the surface of the orbs and then have them not move and control for just one to move and see how it effects all of the others.

Wow that is so stupid sounding, but you know what i mean.

Maybe thinking is just the result of all of the other people and stuff moving around the earth and if they weren't all moving then you wouldn't be thinking, and if they moved a little bit then your thoughts would just move a little bit.

Space experiments being the idea.

Maybe the way to set this up would be to do it in space with color -- to use those things that are black on one side and white on the other that spin in a vacuum, and put one on the surface of a giant smooth homogeneous orb and have a lot of others that are the same shape but not black and white, and see if the moving one effected the others, that way there would only be gravity and radiation from the sun. Maybe you would have to put it far away from the sun to reduce the effect.

       The problem with the space orbs is that you do not know how far out influence from / all of the other people and stuff moving around / extends. Maybe it extends infinitely, or the area of influence is noncontiguous or unrelated to physical spatial attributes of any given piece of stuff.   

       / all of the other people and stuff moving around / is another way of saying God and it is famously hard to disprove God.

       The IT department of MaxCo. has been looking into Slither for what seems like a very long time. They have noted three things:   

       (a) A player can only see an area of the arena close to themselves.   

       (b) New players start out at random locations within the arena.   

       (c) It would be a huge advantage to a player to be able to see all of the arena at once.   

       By combining (a), (b) and (c) with most of MaxCo's 118 computers, we have arrived at a winning strategy. 117 computers all initiate Slither games, giving 117 partial views of the arena. Each of the automatically initiated snakes of course gets killed quite quickly, but then that computer simply starts a new game. Some straightforward image analysis takes these 117 partial views and stitches them together, creating a realtime overview of the entire arena.   

       The 118th computer, of course, is reserved for the 'Head of IT who - being able to see the entire arena instead of just his immediate vicinity - has an unbeatable advantage and has been able to score as high as 200 or even 300 points. This has already led to a remarkable upturn in unproductivity throughout MaxCo.
