Why Elon Musk says we're Is Reality Real? The Simulation Argument 1 day ago   03:40

You may like playing The Sims, but Elon Musk says you are the Sim.

Elon Musk thinks we are living in a simulated reality. Nick Bostrom think those chances are more around 20 percent. The chances of human kind participating in a simulated reality is broken down into three options: 1) humans go extinct before we are able to run a simulation of this size. 2) Humans are uninterested in running ancestor simulations. 3) We are currently participating in the simulation.

have you seen me play Roy??

Very interesting.........
Why is God not spending my stat points?

There are seven simulations within each. Just like inception, we are advancing so deep to th next simulation with advanced technology and AI. That there is a part of no return.

We are living in a simulation but it's nothing like Sims or matrix. Those are WAY *WAY WAY WAY* too primitive for a complex simulation that we're living in. Atoms are "1's and 0's" because they behave same.

Jesus plays sims??

sad dick
If you can't make a Rick and Morty reference from this, we can't be friends.

With extra steps.
Soon as you die.. *Game Over*
A simulation is an approximation, so does that mean that real reality is something much more complex?

Musk is a genius wannabe! 😂🖕🖕🖕screw that spoiled little punk

All human might be individual A.I in a computer simulation. One day if we created another simulation, which will prove that we're indeed living in the simulation.
That's why life is too serious to be taken too seriously.

Plot twist, we're living in a simulation, INSIDE of a simulation

This makes me think about a story written by Issac Asimov. A scientist named Ralson believes that we're living in an experiment, out of many, run by a higher intelligence.

Millions of years for us could be microseconds outside the simulation. Also the sim probably simulates physics starting from the big bang and doesn’t actually create anything on purpose but by natural course of the particles like a snooker table upon the breaking of the balls

forget this crap we have Tik Tok now!

We could be living in a simulation. This could be an interesting comment.

This is the stupidest thing I heard all week

If this is true, this a message for the player
