Smellytring builds a functioning hard-drive in Minecraft. I think that's pretty fantastic, actually.
Unfortunately, the folks at UsVsTh3m then start talking about The Matrix and get Cod Keanu-Neo-isms confused with philosophy; unfortunately, SF-geeks have been doing this since Star Trek / Star Wars -- blame Roddenberry / Lucas, depending on your age (I mean -- who knows how far back that rabbit-hole'll go... maybe back to Golden Age Pulp of the 30s, or Victorian Scientific Romances...! Actually, de Bergerac's States and Empires of the Sun (1662) is maybe one of the points at which philosophy bifurcated and became SF). And I say all this as a SF-geek myself. If you talk quietly enough, pretty much anything'll sound deep, man. But for a so-called Buddhist, Steve Jobs sure shouted a lot. Write "Jedi" as your religion on your polling-card. Et cetera.
((When you get the world confused with a film* - a simulation (and one that itself posits the world as a simulation of itself) - then maybe it's time to get into post-structuralism, dude, because they've been running various simulations of society / culture for soooome time now and you ain't even noticed.))
Snarking aside, it's a terrible piece of post-Buzzfeed writing. But what the fuck do I know, I'm old and Jedi prob. will be the world's biggest religion by 2120.
For what it's worth, I don't buy into that whole "Are we living in a simulation" bullshit -- it's a lameass holodeck "The Physics of Star Trek" conceit that's as big a cop-out as Christianity and most of the other major religions. Man up and fucking take responsibility for your actions, son.
But creating a hard-drive using the rules of Minecraft (something that maybe the UsVsTh3m piece doesn't give enough credit for / thought to -- let's talk about the prevalence of *erm* Dualism in philosophy and Fractalism in nature and the inherent tensions that exist between the two. Or not) -- no, that is cool.
* And a shit one at that. See, I can do footnotes, too.
