A community of people called Randonauts are trying to glitch the simulation they think we live in by travelling to randomly-generated locations. I’m not sure if the logic really works – if we are in a simulation then the experiment itself will be part of it? Like trying to climb out of snakes and ladders by using a ladder. Nevertheless, the process does sound rather appealing; a way to reframe little magical locations that might otherwise be missed – discarded items, books, the occasional Fidel Castro shrine – and give them some meaning, metaphysical or not. It’s a new way of seeing, something that’s always welcome.
