The year is 2050 and super-intelligent robots have taken over the planet.
Except you have no idea, because you’re living in a computer simulation, depicting what life was like in 2015.
Everything you see and touch right now has been created by robotic overlords who are using humanity as playthings in their virtual game.
That’s the radical theory put forward by a number of scientists over the years, who claim there is a possibility that our world as we know it is fake.
t may sound ridiculous, but this ‘simulation argument’ is being taken seriously by physicists who say they could find evidence that confirms it
Robert Lawrence Kuhn, writer and host of ‘Closer to Truth,’ recently explored this theory in an in-depth report featured on Space.com.
He notes that, according to Oxford University philosopher Nick Bostrom, the scenario played out in the film, The Matrix, could be a reality.
But ‘instead of having brains in vats that are fed by sensory inputs from a simulator, the brains themselves would also be part of the simulation,’ said Bostrom.
