Universe like a computer?

Posted: Tue Feb 12, 2013 9:37 pm



It sure makes everything in life start to make sense. Of course this is just a theory, but it's quite interesting.

I thought this would've started good conversations

An Oxford philosopher's take on the idea. It's an interesting idea, but the guy you linked to is just crazy


quote from some dude on reddit:

"If it's possible to simulate a universe, then there could be a potentially infinite number of simulated universes within any real universe. That could include simulations being directly in the real universe, and also possibly simulations within simulations within simulations. Just statistically, the odds that you would find yourself in the one real universe instead of one of the simulations would be, if you'll excuse the pun, virtually nonexistent.
So if you accept the possibility of such simulations ever existing, then there's basically no reason to think we aren't in one, since it's by far the more likely proposition if they can exist."

Basically the theory is some super-programmer wrote a 'program' (think of some giant multiplayer role-playing video game) and the universe is the program. The only difference between an MMORPG and this simulation-program is that it's 999999 times larger and the characters are actually sentient. So basically we're living in a computer simulation and the universe is just a bunch of lines of code running. It's a stretch, but it's a theory that has gained more and more attention as our information technology has become more advanced, and therefore more able to do things like simulation programs.
