At the heart of much speculative fiction (and fiction in general) is a question. What if? On Tuesdays I like to throw one out there and see what you make of it. Do with it as you please. If a for-instance is not specified, feel free to interpret that instance as you wish. And if you find this becomes a novel-length answer, I'd appreciate a thank you in the acknowledgements. 😉
What if you went into a virtual reality simulation and you couldn't get back out?
Sorry. I know it's been done. But I had this dream, and I didn't have a "what if?" for today, so this'll have to do.
