We are ‘almost definitely’ living in a Matrix-style simulation, claims Elon Musk

OWON: So, Musk says we are 99.999% certain to be just and ONLY products of a Matrix multidimensional AI cosmic game.

All bit time players on a cosmic board. If the game stops?




We are ‘almost definitely’ living in a Matrix-style simulation, claims Elon Musk

Elon Musk, the billionaire entrepreneur and founder of Space X, Tesla and Paypal, has told an interviewer there is only a “one in billions” chance that we’re not living in a computer simulation.

Speaking at San Francisco’s Code Conference this week, Musk said that he has had “so many simulation discussions it’s crazy”, and that it got to the point where “every conversation [he had] was the AI/simulation conversation”.

He also claimed that, if we’re not living in a simulation, we could be approaching the end of the world.

Putting forward what he described as the “strongest argument” for consensus reality being in a simulation, Musky said: “Forty years ago we had Pong. Like, two rectangles and a dot. That was what games were.

“Now, 40 years later, we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously, and it's getting better every year. Soon we'll have virtual reality, augmented reality.

“If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality, even if that rate of advancement drops by a thousand from what it is now. Then you just say, okay, let's imagine it's 10,000 years in the future, which is nothing on the evolutionary scale.

“So given that we're clearly on a trajectory to have games that are indistinguishable from reality, and those games could be played on any set-top box or on a PC or whatever, and there would probably be billions of such computers or set-top boxes, it would seem to follow that the odds that we're in base reality is one in billions.

  1. On dating: "I need to find a girlfriend. That’s why I need to carve out just a little more time. I think maybe even another five to 10 — how much time does a woman want a week? Maybe 10 hours? That’s kind of the minimum? I don’t know."

    So, John, is Elon Musk your brother? :-0)
