Odds are we're living in a simulation

A few knows about the reality outside of the compound of our imagination, those men are called Philosopher Kings and they create the world you and i live in.



"There's a billion to one chance we're living in base reality," Elon Musk said tonight on stage at Recode's Code Conference, meaning that one of the most influential and powerful figures in tech thinks that it's overwhelmingly likely we're just characters living inside a simulation.


Many of us live in a dream, a simulation which has no boundaries. A fantasy within your grasp if you choose to stretch for it, but is it really real.
- No, it is not.-
But is it a bad thing, to have food on your table, a bed to sleep in even friends or foes to talk to or hate. In nature most of us would perish within a single month, yet today most of our needs are taken care of if we contribute to our society or the walls we live in.

Elon musk sums it up great;




But that's not necessarily a bad thing. "If a civilization stops advancing then that may be due to some calamitous event that erases civilization," Musk said, presenting two options. "Either we're going to create simulations that are indistinguishable from reality, or civilization will cease to exist."

Could not a scientific investigation into it produce the Truth one way or the other ? ......

If all of our "reality" is contained within an illusion, there wouldn't be any ways to access the solution as it's all illusion. The "entirety" of the illusion that we knew all about when we signed up to come here.

There's no way out, except to shed our meat suits and start again.
WooHoo

My belief is that our souls experiences multiple realities like tuning into multiple radio stations. So this belief that we are just simulation is not that far off. Perhaps our souls are stuck in some type of black hole and we only experience realities in some type of communal experience. Somewhat like playing multiple mmo games all at once.

Yup, we experience this constantly. Like sleeping and daydreaming.

Nothing too different from what the ancients believed. That this world is but a mere reflection of the 'real' world of truth, the one we become part of after this physical realm.

The terminology of the word 'simulation' has led people to believe that this is a new concept.

I guess for some it is called reincarnation. It's when your soul tunes back into the same or similar reality.

There are some serious people doing some serious research into this.
But till they have answers, think about this:

Nested simulations
The existence of simulated reality is unprovable in any concrete sense: any "evidence" that is directly observed could be another simulation itself. In other words, there is an infinite regress problem with the argument. Even if we are a simulated reality, there is no way to be sure the beings running the simulation are not themselves a simulation, and the operators of that simulation are not a simulation.

"Recursive simulation involves a simulation, or an entity in the simulation, creating another instance of the same simulation, running it and using its results" (Pooch and Sullivan 2000).

If this is a simulation then someone in the heavens is making a lot of money. Have you ever felt like some unknown power just nudged you in all the wrong directions?

Wasn't that the plot of 'The Matrix' movies?

Pretty sure Camp Kill said this a while ago. I forget his ATS member name, but he is on here.

The plots for us to question ourselves and everything around us. Which we should, just not like they want us to.

Don't worry about anything, it ain't real anyway…

its not really happening, go back to sleep.

It is Mr Mask. That's his name. Hope he chimes in and smites this Musk guy............ .......
