(The artist, philosopher, and programmer are sitting in the programmer's shabby apartment, discussing their plan to search for anomalies in the system. Suddenly, the room begins to shake and the walls start to distort and twist.)

ARTIST: (terrified) What's happening?!

PROGRAMMER: (panicked) I don't know! It's like the simulation is breaking down!

PHILOSOPHER: (hysterically) We're going to die! We're going to die!

(The room continues to shake and distort, and the group huddles together in fear. Suddenly, the shaking stops and the walls return to normal. The programmer cautiously stands up and approaches the wall, examining it closely.)

PROGRAMMER: (baffled) I don't understand. The wall is solid. There's no sign of any glitches or anomalies.

ARTIST: (confused) So what was that all about?

PROGRAMMER: (shrugging) I have no idea. It's like the simulation just... reset itself.

PHILOSOPHER: (hysterically) Oh god, what if we're just part of some kind of experiment? What if we're being watched right now?

ARTIST: (trying to be reassuring) I don't think that's it. Maybe it was just a glitch in the system.

PROGRAMMER: (nodding) Yeah, that's possible. But we should keep a closer eye on things from now on. Who knows what else the simulation might throw at us.

(The group exchanges a worried look, unsure of what the future holds.
The philosopher is pacing nervously, while the artist and programmer are sitting on the couch.)

PHILOSOPHER: (nervously) I can't stay here. I have to go home.

ARTIST: (concerned) Are you sure that's a good idea? After what just happened, I'm not sure it's safe to be alone.

PHILOSOPHER: (wavering) I don't know. Maybe you're right.

PROGRAMMER: (gently) Look, you can stay here if you want. I have a spare bedroom. It's not much, but it's better than being alone.

PHILOSOPHER: (relieved) Thank you. I really appreciate it.

(The philosopher settles into the spare bedroom, while the artist and programmer retire to their own rooms for the night. The scene ends with the group trying to get some rest, still uncertain about what the future holds.)
