Is Our Universe a Fake?

I began bemused. The notion that humanity might be living in an artificial reality — a simulated universe — seemed sophomoric, at best science fiction.

But speaking with scientists and philosophers on “Closer to Truth,” I realized that the notion that everything humans see and know is a gigantic computer game of sorts, the creation of supersmart hackers existing somewhere else, is not a joke. Exploring a “whole-world simulation,” I discovered, is a deep probe of reality.

FKHow do we know our ‘self awareness’ is really ‘self awareness?’ It’s human arrogance/ignorance that ranks us above anything but tadpoles in the pond and death is no guarantee of escape from the Matrix.
