I know its been awhile since the Matrix movies have graced our minds with the tale of the human race living inside a virtual reality world. As time went on, and bank accounts grew some “real” life, physicist saw it as more then a movie.
In 2003, University of Oxford philosophy professor Nick Bostrom published a paper, “The Simulation Argument,” which argued that, “we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation.”
Now, to be honest I loved the Matrix trilogy, but I thought it was more symbolism then actual fact but after reading the “Simulation Argument” http://www.simulation-argument.com, I have to say there where some interesting points (thank god a watched the Matrix first); but even more interesting is the fact that, like I said earlier, real physicist have tested the theory and according to prof.
James Gates a theoretical physicists and John S Toll both professors at the University of Maryland claim they’ve found an error correcting code embedded in the fabric of the universe , and the professor makes a valid question when he asked “since when is the universe concerned with embedding a very particular kind of an error correction code into the fundamental laws of physics “.
Researchers are building their own simulated models using a technique called Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics. So, with that in mind if this is a simulated reality do we have a measure of control i.e. create or have a strong influence on reality?
If you asked yourself these sort of questions after seeing these things this website should help you on your journey
