If you found out that we are all living in the matrix, would you take the blue pill and live a pleasant illusion or take the red pill and live in the harsh real world?
In this video Joe Rogan and Nasa Physicist Tom Campbell discuss a wide range of topics that centre around the simulation theory and the theory that our universe might just be a hologram. If we as humanity are going to evolve we need to gain a deeper understanding of the universe and also our inner-selves. Tom hits the nail on the head when he says that ‘Love’ is the optimal way for people to interact, this is only way humanity can experience real spiritual growth.
The man who famously warned about the dangers of artificial intelligence believes we all may actually be artificially intelligent beings.
Elon Musk thinks it’s almost certain that we’re living in some version of The Matrix. In fact, he believes that there’s a “one in billions chance” that reality as we know it is not a computer simulation.
No, really. You read that right.
“The strongest argument for us probably being in a simulation I think is the following,” Musk said. “40 years ago we had Pong. Two rectangles and a dot. That’s where we were.”
“Now 40 years later we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. And soon we’ll have virtual reality, we’ll have augmented reality.”
“If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality, just indistinguishable.”
Here’s how it breaks down: According to Musk, if you take the rate of growth in computational power right now and extrapolate it thousands (or millions) of years into the future, we will inevitably have the ability to create video games that are so real, we can’t tell the difference between the virtual world and reality.
In fact, Musk believes that this fate is so certain, that we are likely already living in a computer simulation, created by an advanced future civilization (more on why later).
That’s a mind-blowing thought. Let this sink in for a second: The man that famously warned about the dangers of artificial intelligence believes we all may actually be artificially intelligent beings.
Look, it sounds crazy. I know. But Musk, who has revolutionized the electric car industry and has ambitious plans to send us to Mars, is no dummy — he’s the face of today’s most technological innovations, and has made billions along the way. I wouldn’t dismiss his idea as crazy or delusional just yet.
Indeed, analysts at Bank of America also issued a report to its clients claiming that there’s a 50% chance we’re living in The Matrix:
“It is conceivable that with advancements in artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and computing power, members of future civilizations could have decided to run a simulation of their ancestors,” the report stated.
