Well of course there would be problems. A discovery like that would change quite a bit. But it wouldn't change what was "Real", and certainly wouldn't remove all the value from life. There wouldn't be any flip of the switch moment where people would say "**** it, nothings 'real', let's **** shit up?" Because the revelation wouldn't change people's outward feelings toward their current world. A person's emotions are still just as valid. The real physical world would still be indistinguishable from a simulated one from the perspective of a person inside. Unless you could experience both simultaneously, it wouldn't matter which you were experiencing.
