‘We will prove we're in a simulation’ Silicon Valley convinced we're living in the MATRIX
SILICON Valley billionaires are so convinced we are living in a computer simulation that they are going to invest heavily in funding research to prove it.

Tech innovators at Silicon Valley, home to the headquarters of many of the technology world’s biggest companies such as Apple, Facebook and Google, believe that we are not living in the real world and are in fact a product of computer simulation.
French philosopher René Descartes originally theorised about the brain-in-a-vat in his 1641 Meditations on First Philosophy where he said that our minds are all being controlled from a laboratory.
Since then, technology has advanced so much and, coupled with the rise of AI, many believe that we are living inside a virtual reality.
In a New Yorker profile on Sam Altmon of Y Combinator – a company that nurtures and speeds up the growth of start-up tech firms – revealed that Silicon Valley, including Mr Altmon, is “obsessed” with the idea of computer simulations.
The piece reads: "Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer; two tech billionaires have gone so far as to secretly engage scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation."
Billionaire Elon Musk, who’s Tesla Inc is situated in Silicon Valley, has also previously expressed his belief that we are in a simulation.
