Title: Simulation theory
Post by: foxsella on March 18, 2019, 11:30:48 AM
Elon Musk says there is a huge probability we are living in a computer simulation. He has the facts to prove it. What do you guys think of that?

My opinion on the matter, this is probably something not appropriate to flat earth Q&A.

He does not have the facts to prove any such thing.

He has no such facts, and I think there is a probability we are living in a computer simulation. I wouldn't call it a huge, or even likely, probability.

He says true. We are definitely living in a 2D simulation. Like a computer screen. We think it as 3D but there are many evidences of its being 2 dimentional, but not three.

Theoretically, this is possible. There are no facts yet to disprove it. However, theories in a similar circumstance have been made throughout history, and have often been proven wrong. A perfect example being the geocentric solar system. At the time, there was no method to disprove that theory, but after the invention of telescopes, it was able to be determined that the solar system does not revolve around the Earth.

Similarly, there is no method yet to disprove the simulation theory. However, it is my personal belief that there will eventually be a way to prove we are not existing within a computer simulation.

I think that simulation theory is sort of like God, the Father Almighty; while you may believe in it or that there is potential for it to be real, there is really no way to prove it (yet). Perhaps if technology advances far enough within the field of computer simulations to create simulations that are nigh indistinguishable from the reality that we experience. If this happens then we might be able to use knowledge from our simulations to help identify similarities and differences between the computerized world. The problem with this is that it wouldn't really be possible to know if the simulations are parallel, meaning that they would be exactly the same because our technologies are the same (our tech and the society that is simulating us' tech).

What if our tech outgrows theirs and we take over the sim?
