MIT professor claims we are likely living in “The Matrix” – quick, take the red pill

[Natural News]: Are we living in a simulation? According to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) professor and computer scientist Rizwan Virk, it’s very likely.

Virk’s ideas develop upon those first theorized by Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrom known as the simulation hypothesis.

In this, he outlines three possibilities:

1. That humanity, like many other human-like civilizations before it, will go extinct before it can have the technological capacity to create a simulation-based reality;

2. That humanity, once it reaches the technological capacity to do so, will mostly likely choose not to run a simulation of their evolutionary history; or

3. That we are currently living in a simulation because another species in a “base reality” already has the technological capacity to run a simulation-based reality and has chosen to do so.

In an interview, Virk explains what the simulation hypothesis is: “The simulation hypothesis is the modern equivalent of an idea that’s been around for a while, and it’s the idea that the physical world that we live in, including the Earth and the rest of the physical universe, is actually part of a computer simulation.”

Virk uses “The Matrix” as an example. In the movie, Neo, played by Keanu Reeves, was given a choice by the character Morpheus, played by Laurence Fishburne, to take the blue pill or the red pill. If he takes the red pill, “he wakes up and realizes that his entire life, including his job, the building he lived in, and everything else, was part of this elaborate video game, and he wakes up in a world outside of the game.”...<<<Read The Full Article Here>>>...
