What if real humans, created advanced computer programs that simulate human consciousness, and decided to create an experiment to study human behavior aka what we see as Planet Earth? What if we're not really human, but those computer programs?

DNA could be just data stored in memory for each person. When we reproduce, an algorithm can randomly recombinant DNA for our offspring, then another Algorithm can interpret that DNA to create the person, as well as personality tendencies, genetic diseases or genetic talents.

If this is true, are we human? Can a perfect human consciousness simulation program be considered just as deserving of human rights?

I would say:
It is what it is. Call it human, don't call it human, we know what it is we are talking about. It's just a word.

And as for rights the only rights we get are from the workings of the universe. So we would have our "rights" from the workings of the program, and the workings of the program would be determined by the programmer(s). So I'm not really saying much. If it was up to me I would give the "people" protections.

Personally I would recognize sentience as sentience no matter the source.

You know too much. We cannot let you live

The reason he hasn't replied is that he is currently being interrogated in a government hideout.

There is no such thing as a right answer. Your question is doomed.

I have pondered your question for many hours and come to one irrefutable conclusion...

Guys this is serious. We were chosen to hear this information for a reason. This person didn't sacrifice his life for nothing. He specifically chose us. We need to spread the message to others through the power of metal music.

Yes, it is our sacred duty to spread this message. Let the world know. Set us free!

well, isnt DNA just that? data that instructs our body on how to operate? and then when we produce, our RNA (or whatever does that shit- i forgot ALL of biology) is the system that does that. we basically can call ourselves computers i think. the only difference is that we arent made of metal and plastic. im gonna stop there becuase i have a hunch this conversation can get a little too deep and belong in another thread- like the religion thread. (gasps)
