Do we live in a computer simulation?

27 posts in this topic

I read Brian Greene's Hidden Reality, and this was my least favourite Multiverse theory...Just seemed like the least likely...I like the Holographic multiverse theory more, and I'm not much of a fan of that one either lol

Damn, that just made me dizzy reading all that text that really didn't say anything. . .oh wait. . . :s

For me the questions are: is it rather holographic projection of saved state with no chances for changing it? Or its "base program" allows intelligent species to live on their own? Does it fully mimic reality of their creators? Or it is just like in Minecraft - a random seed generated for fun or rather specimen sample with basic environment.

I blame The Matrix for this.

We must go deeper...

I believe this thread (albeit not tagged and named descriptively enough) talks exactly about this.

The Double-Slit Experiment

When a camera observed the electrons, they acted as particles. However, when the no equipment was used to observe the electrons, they acted as waves and particles simultaneously.

I watched the above a while ago, particles change behaviour when watched

If this is true, might I beseech the Admin(s) of this simulation to tweak the parameters a bit?

Interesting stuff indeed.

this almost directly correlates to the research on superconductor fractals and their influence on predictable

constants through energy permutation for what is believed to define a set of "higer universal laws"

which in theory are what controls and influences all the other subordinate laws, principles, ordinances,

and rules that govern function and form in the universe

tl;dr

It is possible to influence matter with other matter to react in a predictable way other than we are aware of in our surroundings

Sorry to burst your bubble but the double slit experiment is so misunderstood. The act of measurement affects the particles, it isn't the same as looking at them with your eyes...

And what is sight but the proccess of light refraction passing through a cornea lens which is then morphed by a liquid

(light manipulation by exposure to specific chemical components)

I prefer double slits to single ones..

I don't think this is a simulation. The server hasn't crashed in billions of years and the amount of processing power needed to simulate my crazy cat just does not exist in any way, shape or form.

If it was running Linux I should be allowed to see the source code to this simulation!

Maybe you can, but who would you ask ? :p

You're just unaware it crashed. Like when a game crashes and you resume from you last save. The in-game characters would have no idea a crash happened :shiftyninja:.
