It's a nightmare, let's escape.
How do you escape a nightmare? You do crazy things to break the system. You try to hurt yourself, you try to hurt others, you drink phlegm, you scream, you jump, you fly, you fall, you roll, you sink.
But the entire system is a simulation composed of imaginations, it's not easy to jump out of your own brain, yet you keep thinking the normal laws apply here.
Finally, you give up. You lay down, trying to relax a bit.
You fall asleep, you swallow the blue pill, you run a virtual machine inside a virtual machine, you underclock yourself, you try to escape by being the god of your mini universe.
There is no escape.
