Allow this troper to explain, as that title probably sounded damned ambiguous. See, the life as we know it, or as long as existence has...existed, is a Beta test of the "real" program. Or, possibly, the first half of existence has already passed, as the Alpha version. See, in the future, possibly within the lifespan of humankind, the Beta will be ended by the higher powers; Eldritch Abominations, God, [[MahouSenseiNegima Cosmo Entelecheia]], Morgan Freeman, what-have-you. Essentially, the data stored from the "Beta" will be taken note and either programmed into the "true version" by the proverbial software engineers (or would scientists be the correct term?), or sent through complex systems to evolve into the basis for the future "game" through the will of the program itself. Similar to what "Lost Saga" underwent in {{Yureka}}, if you will.

Don't you find it strange that Konami released the Metal Gear Solid Collection on both the PS3 and the 360 despite having no plans on porting the rest? Or how about Atlus's decision to release the Persona 4 fighting game despite having never developed a Persona title on an XBox? Or the direct sequels of Final Fantasy XII on the DS? Don't you get it? All the companies are working together! Never played the sequel of the game you played on one system? Well you're going to have to shell more money out to buy another one! I'm on to you, Microsontendo!

A long time ago, during a golden age of peace, an author wrote a book. This book was about the birth of a new universe, and the evolution of life on a fertile planet he called "[[RealLife Earth]]". Over time, he wrote more and more sequels to the "Earth" series, soon creating a species where his future protagonists would come from: Humanity. He created an author insert, named "[[AuthorAvatar God]]". Of course, he wasn't going to just make himself supreme ruler in the series. Rather, his characters would have many interpretations of him, many beliefs about him, many different books that claimed to be his words ([[TeasingCreator which he would tease fans about when they asked which one or ones were really supposed to be from him]]) [[IHaveManyNames and some believing in different incarnations of him]], sometimes split into many different "Gods". The series was popular, and selling really well. So, it became a multi-media affair, with adaptations and new works written by himself and others, with only a shake-y idea of canon. This, in the future, [[ContinuitySnarl would leave what was canon and what was not unsure]], but they didn't know that. The stories were generally good, with only the occasional PlotTumor or MarySue, but all in all, the various series were good. The show "Earth: [[EnsembleDarkhorse Julius Caesar]]" was especially popular, leading to [[CallBack call-backs]] and [[{{Expy}} characters inspired by him]] popping up throughout the works. The "America" series of books were controversial and disliked by the fans of "Britain", especially due to how it portrayed the characters from the "Britain" series, but generally are liked by all in hindsight. The still-ongoing "Japan" manga is one of the most popular series in the franchise, and has been going for decades. However, over time, the author fell on hard times due to a gambling problem. He was forced to sell off his creation to a large corporation, who quickly contracted him to continue writing. At first, the arrangement went well. The "American Civil War" was a huge plot twist and the "Spanish Inquisition" story arc was something nobody saw coming. However, the Author was tired of writing the Earth series, and wanted to end it. He wrote the "Great War" [[CrisisCrossover mega-crossover story]] as a GrandFinale, but the [[ExecutiveVeto executives vetoed]] the idea of ending it. However, they drew up a contract. For a few more stories, they would let him end it all in a sequel to the "Great War". The contract was signed and the Author went home, slightly annoyed but pretty happy. However, right after the sequel to the "Great War", which was now marketed as "The Great War: World War I" so that they could tie it to "World War II", the Author's home burnt down, killing him and destroying the only record of the contract. With the contract destroyed, the executives were able to continue the series, though with a [[NetworkDecay decay in quality]] since then. They handed [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs several full series to a drug addict]], leading to the hugely popular but extremely odd "1960s", "1970s" and "1980s" overarching plots. They had the details fleshed out by other writers, leading to an odd contrast of the world being bright and neon as well as completely insane looking, but the politics and general atmosphere being dark and gloomy. The Author had a hugely popular tradition of making [[ShoutOut sly little references to fanfiction]], like having some fanfics being the works of the title character of the series "William Shakespeare", so the executives quickly cashed in on this, bringing all types of fiction that their world had into ours, with a bit more time spent introducing TheInternet. They then inserted popular fanfics at a cost as the works in the universe. While this led to some really good fanfics becoming know, a rich man with the pen name Creator/UweBoll kept paying to get his badfic inserted. The writers, not liking this, made the works all just as horrible in the "Earth" universe as reality. Sadly, one of the most popular fanfics, "{{Series/Firefly}}", was quickly removed by the executives after the writer removed the references to the "Earth" series and made it into a TV show in their world, [[ItGetsBetter where it still runs today]]. As he already had a cast in mind when he wrote it, the only differences between "Earth" Firefly and the "Real" Firefly is references to Earth and length. Hired to write the book "2005", the writer snuck a little reference in, however. As the executives [[DarkerAndEdgier have focused more]] [[RefugeInAudacity and more on controversy]], quick publication and large circulation, quality has decayed. The Golden Age of the Earth Universe is gone, [[HopeSpot but recent writers have been improving the series back to it's old form]]. Only time will tell if it will continue to improve.

Yes we're all a bit leery of that [i]thing[/i] on his head. That's a side effect of the psionic emanations it uses to control Trump's mind. "Trump's" policies are carefully calculated to destabilize the world and soften us up for the main invasion. No we shouldn't hate Trump, we should pity him. He's just the innocent slave of an evil extradimensional rodent.

[[WMG: Related to Michael Moore works for Bush and Glenn Beck works for Obama theories: Donald Trump secretly works for Barrack Obama and (or) Hillary Clinton. ]] They enlisted the aid of The Donald to thoroughly discredit the Republicans and possibly ruin the political careers of every other Republican candidate (especially Tea Party contenders such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio) by having Trump spout Neo-Fascist rhetoric and insult nearly every major group (including groups critical to winning the November election such as women and Latinos), figuring (correctly) that Republicans would embrace his brash personality and far-right stances while the majority of Americans would turn away from the GOP in disgust. Clinton's motivations are obviously to win the presidency in the same way LBJ beat Goldwater, by presenting her likely opponent as a dangerous extremist who will endanger the democratic principles America was built on. Obama's motivation is that his policies be continued or perhaps even strengthened (should Clinton move to the left once elected or should Bernie Sanders be elected) and the best way to ensue that is by having the GOP cripple itself in the civil war that has erupted between Pro and Anti Trump factions and then sink itself completely when they try to run a candidate as extreme and divisive as Trump. This might end up being a case of Gone Horribly Right should Trump (or Bernie Sanders if he wasn't part of the plan) actually win the November election

Yes, our Universe is actually in the shape of a cane. The owner is a slightly-elderly man by the name of General T.S. Palpadeer, who is in constant combat with a sinister looking person, both of whom are pulling [[SoulSeries Soul Calibur]]-styled moves while circling each other on a round, stone platform surrounded by a spring and trees. The "Big Bang" is actually a special move of Palpadeer's, which he smashes the cane into the other man, with it being charged by lightning gained from the energy of the "collision". Apparently, their HP is through the roof and they have no issues with battling for billions upon billions of years.
