In a recent interview with Vice, NASA Scientist Rich Terrile talks about his theory that Real Life itself may just be a simulation like Grand Theft Auto IV.
He then goes on to comprare his theory to Grand Theft Auto IV running on a Playstation 3.
The other interesting thing is that the natural world behaves exactly the same way as the environment of Grand Theft Auto IV. In the game, you can explore Liberty City seamlessly in phenomenal detail. I made a calculation of how big that city is, and it turns out it’s a million times larger than my PlayStation 3. You see exactly what you need to see of Liberty City when you need to see it, abbreviating the entire game universe into the console. The universe behaves in the exact same way. In quantum mechanics, particles do not have a definite state unless they’re being observed. Many theorists have spent a lot of time trying to figure out how you explain this. One explanation is that we’re living within a simulation, seeing what we need to see when we need to see it.
What do you think about this theory?
Well all know what this feels like..
