Okay, say we’re all just characters in a video game or some computer generated world like some say is statistically more likely than not. Don’t you still want to win, be happy, be good, try to connect with the video game creator, search for and find your purpose in your own terms, and make the computer world a better place for all other characters past, present, and future?

I hadn’t read it before my quote, but more on this theory from Wikipedia:

The simulation hypothesis (simulation argument or simulism) proposes that reality is a simulation and those affected are generally unaware of this. The concept is reminiscent of RenĂ© Descartes’ Evil Genius but posits a more futuristic simulated reality.

There is a long philosophical and scientific history to the underlying thesis that reality is an illusion. This skeptical hypothesis (which can be dated in Western thought back to Parmenides, Zeno of Elea and Plato and in Eastern thought to the Advaita Vedanta concept of Maya) arguably underpins the mind–body dualism of Descartes, and is closely related to phenomenalism, a stance briefly adopted by Bertrand Russell. In a narrower sense it has become an important theme in science fiction, and recently has become a serious topic of study for futurology, in particular for transhumanism through the work of Nick Bostrom. The Simulation Hypothesis is a subject of serious academic debate[1] within the field of transhumanism.
