Italy USA

( The Second Time Though The Simulation )

2000 - 2005

In December 1999, on the eve of the new millennium, Loid traveled to Europe and Italy for the first time when he was 27 years old.

By the next Fall Loid left the house built over the waterfall and was living in Rome, Italy.

After a few months on a cold night in December, in a ancient Roman cruising park littered with 2000 year old marble columns, Loid met an Italian guy that would become his boyfriend for the next decade.

The Italian guy was an actor and teacher of high school drama with a million friends and everyone loved him. He also acted in small theatrical productions and was always surrounded by crazy actors and artists. With him every weekend in Italy there was something to do. Some rehearsal... or play... or dinner... or event.. or something... always something as Loid followed his boyfriend and tried to figure out how to understand everyone and be understood. The beginning was difficult because of the language and culture differences. His boyfriend's crazy Italian friends became Loid's friends and that made Loid feel less crazy.

Loid got a job in Web Design that allowed him to work from anywhere in the world.

The Italian experience lasted almost 10 years.

is the theory that all of reality, including the Earth and the universe could be in fact an artificial simulation — for example by quantum computer simulation — indistinguishable from “true” reality. It could contain conscious minds which may or may not be fully aware that they are living inside a simulation. This is a proposed technology so advanced that it would seem realistic enough to convince its inhabitants the simulation was real.
