A team of scientists from the University of Washington claim to have devised a way to test whether we’re living in a computer simulation. Though fascinating, ‘reality’ is still to pass the test.
Reality is questionable. Zeno, Plato, and many philosophers have held similar opinions centuries ago. But ever since computers became a part of our reality, an increasing number of individuals have argued that life itself may be nothing more than a computer simulation. The idea furthers the concept of phenomenalism. Scientists now believe that they can test the simulation hypothesis to see if we’re actually living in a computer simulation.
