What If Our Experiences Are A Simulated Experiences

How Amazon’s Originals “The Wilds” Makes You Think

Wikipedia says that The simulation hypothesis or simulation theory proposes that all of reality, including the Earth and the rest of the universe, could be an artificial simulation, such as a computer simulation. Some versions rely on developing a simulated reality, a proposed technology that would convince its inhabitants that the simulation was “real.” Although they have claimed to disprove the simulated theory, this series has sparked my interest. Now, as a writer, I thought about writing simulation-driven storylines. The truth is, it’s a creepy idealism that I don’t think I am ready to follow at the moment. I have many ideas for painting the picture of what it looks like to break away from conformity.

Spoiler alert. “The Wilds” starts with an investigation of what occurred during a plane crash on a retreat trip to an all teens girl trip in Hawaii. The storyline consists of seven females with teenagers, all troubled with internalized issues at a young age. It captivated my interest because it reminded me of the problems plagued with a teen and how those demons followed me through adulthood. Which one of the relatable things that this series captures that is so damn relatable. Is figuring out who the hell we are in a socially conforming world. All were playing our parts that they all thought we were meant to be by preserving our individuality.

As the story develops, they begin to recall their lives as they try to survive the deserted island. All is meant to be a social experiment intended to build full female leadership as the antagonist in the story is lead by a good intention: to encourage women at a young age with women from all walks of life, all coping with a traumatic past. All in the sense of turning their trauma into power. As the psychology theorem is that those who resolve their internalized become powerful. This proves to be accurate as this is where “The Journey of an Unraveled Road” was written off. Not knowing that this was an actual theory until I began my major is human psychology as the study goes deeper into how the human mind works. The story starts showing how every one of them engages in the emotional triggers that are induced by social norms, male influence, and the they created for themselves.

As things go tragically wrong on this specific trip, the woman in the ivory tower of the experiment attempts to lie to herself and cover the incident as an induced experiment as the trauma toll begins to affect her. Part of it is the repercussions and the consequences and the legal repercussions that will occur. Later, we find the fear of losing everything she works for as she becomes desperate to hide the incident as things get worst for the survivors on the island. Meanwhile, the survivors find the silver lining of the incident as they begin to realize that they are finally free from the chains of conformity they forcefully were put on by their parents

To avoid ruining the whole series, I will stop there. But the truth of the matter is that it takes a lot to have me enticed to want to binge-watch a series. Let’s just say that finding out about this show last night had me watching this till three in the morning. Having an Amazon Business account, I ended up not realizing that Prime included until a few months into having this. Still, the Amazon Original Series has been exceptionally on point as they create relatable storylines based on the human psyche. All I can say is on point Amazon, on point.
