So I'm going to assume for a second that these people "really" think this is a possibility, and that it's not just stupid PR crap. Seems to me the reason they believe this is that their lives really do feel like a simulation, because they are that disconnected from the typical Everyman/Everywoman existence that mere mortals have to live. That, and the fact that the whole line of thought is just an exercise in who can be the most self-aggrandizing. Trust me, if they do break out of the simulation, they'll wish they took the blue pill.
