Robert Hanson writes How To Live in a Simulation as a guide to happy living, given the near certainty that we're all currently living in some sort of Matrix-like simulation. To summarize:

If you might be living in a simulation then all else equal you should care less about others, live more for today, make your world look more likely to become rich, expect to and try more to participate in pivotal events, be more entertaining and praiseworthy, and keep the famous people around you happier and more interested in you.
Uh, that's sounds like how most people already live.

(Thanks, GeekPress.)

Is there a functional difference between believing that we live in a simulation and believing in God(s)?
