Thanks guys! ;-D

I will admit that some of those 7000 posts were a little bit crummy. :-b

Thanks for the thread as well, Chad.

From wikipedia (which everyone knows is gospel)

In science fiction Simulacra are often either artificial life forms that are designed to mimic the characteristics of a naturally occurring species, or they can be simulated worlds/planes of existence designed to fool regular people into believing that the simulated world they are in is real. When it comes to artificial beings, simulacra can be seen as a modern day adaptation of the Golem myth.

Many stories that include Simulacra share several common themes:

* Simulacra are always imperfect copies.

* Simulacra are distinguishable from the original, because they are based on an idealized original of that which was copied.

* There is a desire (be it implicit or by design) on the part of the Simulacrum either to be more like the original (i.e. Pinocchio or The Truman Show's staged world), or to replace the original (i.e. Doppelgänger or the Matrix in The Matrix)

* The Simulacra may be hostile or threatening to those whom they copy (i.e., the aliens in Invasion of the Body Snatchers and V (TV series), or Agent Smith in The Matrix) either in a direct manner or by mere abjection (on the part of the observer).


You're thinking of giant worms because I have been known to go off on tangents about how great Dune is. ;-D

Pretty cool, huh? :*)
