TtWH covered that. If you wanna get a handle on some of the truly funky ideas out there, TtWH is the place to go. My personal favorite is that nothing is really anything, until perceived by some consciousness.

Makes more sense than all religions, ever.
Reminds me of one of my favorite sci-fi books. Eastern hemisphere turns into a massive jungle with alien fauna overnight. Long story short it's a result of anomalies in a thousand-mile cubed computer that contains a simulation of quadrillions of humans and other sentient beings across millions of planets built to survive the Universe' Heat Death. Viruses actually.
