Teddy Bear Toys

Short Story by Carl Frederick

A student records his every thought into a computer program that will attempt to simulate him, and ponders the old "Am I Real or just a simulation"/free will question. Various events happen and it is a very good story on the subject which most importantly doesn't end in a never-ending chain of simulated versions of the protagonist. This is a story to think about, but with the toy store scenes it isn't too dull either. 4 out of 5 philosophy majors would be better off switching to computer science.
