    We are not living in a simulation... this is disgusting... this is real life. Fuck this guy. This is a ticket to do whatever nasty thing they want to people...

    Simulation or not , the certain thing is that if you don't work, you don't eat. If you do not know how to swim you drown. If you don't pay a fine you will be a prisoner. If you fight for something, you get it. And if you don't do everything right to enjoy life, you will realize that the life also hurts. And all this looks very real to be a simple simulation.

    We are not a simulation. We are a design. Made out of molecular matter. Yes the molecules can be disassembled. This is a physical Universe. But it's been subject to futility. Because we were deliberately punked , when we were fist made. We are not what we were supposed to be. To bad for them. Something brand new is coming. Something we have never heard or have seen. I'm glad. I can hardly wait. So now I take leave. ...See ya Sherlocks ! 🌹

    At around 4:50 they look at Elon smurking thinking "this guy has actaully lost the plot thinking were in a video game" but the reality is that they're too ignorant to even look into the theory and try to even get any understanding at all of what the fuck the guys even talking about and the people who created the simulation are most likely hovering over a screen, laughing they're eyes out calling us complete idiots for thinking were not even simulated when the clear answer that we ARE in a simulation is right under they're noses 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    Why would we create a simulation with suffering and pain? Why would we want to be in a simulation that we don't know what it is? That doesn't sound fun that sounds like a nightmare. I can enjoy games right now without losing awareness of my reality. Why do I need to be ignorant about my situation to enjoy a game?

  • Accident Central

    Claiming we live in a "virtual world" implies you have the ability to compare it to some other kind of world (one that isn't "virtual"). But this is the only realm we live in. We have nothing to compare it to to decipher whether it makes sense to refer to it as "virtual" or not. It simply is the way that it is.

    Musk is IMAGINING an "objective reality" and then comparing our universe (the virtual one by his conclusion) to the "objective reality" that he imagined. That is, what he is calling an "objective reality" is really his imaginary interpretation of what an "objective reality" ought to be and then using that as his measure of comparison against the universe we actually exist in. But this is the universe that allows him to imagine what an "objective reality" ought to be (in his own mind) in the first place.

    its bad how you repeated that clip twice. also, elon musk is an atheist because he thinks its logically unlikely for a creator to exist, because well where did he come from? it begs the question and the begining of the universe can be better explained by physical laws. also, michio kaku proved that it is extermely UNLIKELY that we live in a simulation because it contradicts quantum mechanics.

    How is the concept of a simulation any different from a religious perspective of the universe. An all powerful creature created everything we observe and beyond. We're still living it, it's all happening. Maybe someone is even controlling us OR someone is allowing us to live. I find that very fascinating.

    Consider that we are in a simulation created by an AGI. If fundamental laws for the AGI was to preserve human life. Perhaps this was the only way. I have an idea that could crash the system. It involves creating too much data or information for the system to manage. Not sure that there would be any way back from that. So have decided not to disclose this idea to the wider world. I am sure someone maybe able to guess.

    • Lightbringer
      Lightbringer 2 months ago

      @w8l7s call it what you want, it IS codes, programmed codes that gets decoded by your brain and creates a 3d world which with time will look just like the real world, the others sense also decode programmed codes, it is definitely an advanced video game, so advanced that its hard to believe its a computer simulation but it is.

    • w8l7s
      w8l7s 2 months ago

      @Lightbringer Is that supposed to be an argument? A VR headset does not send any "codes" to any brain. It shows you stereoscopic pictures that tricks your brain into thinking you are surrounded by a real environment. Stereoscopy is a very old thing by the way. Dreaming is a much better example.

    • Lightbringer
      Lightbringer 2 months ago

      Conciousness is a mystery however this world IS a video game, go use a VR headset and you will understand, it sends codes to your brain and creates a 3D world much like the one you are seeing right now, that right there is proof that its a computer simulation.

      @Ovi Rosianu It isnt up for discussion as this reality IS programmed code, someone twisted has made this world for his amusement, everything we touch, smell, taste, see etc are codes which we decode, once you try a VR headset and play a game there it will become even more clear, sure the VR technology isnt nowhere near as advanced as the real world yet but with time it will be.

    • Ovi Rosianu
      Ovi Rosianu 2 months ago

      @Lightbringer i get that is possible to bring plausible arguments to sustain ,to "prove" , to build around a theory all kind of wall ideas to keep it standing with rock solid logic,but the common sense should take us out from the mental institution,and just make us see the simple truth:no high intelligence would ever play such boring and cruel game like our world.Our life is a big chance,very fragile and unique.Evolution is not a game,time is not illusion,our place among stars is a fact.To be capable to code such complex world,and to come up with our every day?

    • Lightbringer
      Lightbringer 2 months ago

      You arent so bright if you compare the simulation idea with nonsense like religion, go try a VR headset and you will understand, this is a proven scientific fact that we live in a simulation. In VR codes are sent to your brain which creates a convincing 3d world just like the real world, this proves that its all just code.

      @No Thoughts Barred No its a fact, try a VR headset and you will understand, it sends codes to your eyes which creates a convincing 3d world much like the real one, with time it will be just as real as this reality, reality is just codes that get decoded by the senses which means someone has programmed it so its not a theory but a fact.

    Exodus 13:15
    "And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that the LORD slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to the LORD all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.

We live in a fake world. Maybe in 10000 years in future we are able to create our universe. Maybe we get it right
