Fuse

"The universe can be compared to a television programme playing in a house. If a fuse blows, the programme vanishes, and all who dwell in her. And so if a fuse blows...that's all folks. "
"Ah but if there is someone in the house, the fuse can be replaced and transmission resumes."
"Yes but we're within the programme. How do we know there's anyone watching?"
"Perhaps some of use are within and without."
"I don't understand."
"I know. That's because you're too lost in the programme."

Can we replace the blown fuse with a penny, like in the old days and thus sustain our existence?

Sounds sensible, but one of our two protagonists might argue that us being in the programme aren't in a position to put the penny in the slot, but the other- perhaps wiser one- would probably take your position.
