Are we living in a giant computer simulation? Probably not. According to a new study by astrophysicists from Oxford University, the likelihood that we exist in a simulated universe becomes practically impossible under normal quantum circumstances.
No Blue or Red Pills
Fans of The Matrix perked up at the prospect that we might be living inside a giant computer simulation when Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk raised the hype during the 2016 Code Conference, saying it was entirely possible that we exist inside a simulated universe. We hate to burst your bubble Elon, but it looks like there’s no massive extraterrestrial computer with an epic program underlying all of existence. And it turns out the disproof didn’t use philosophy, either.
