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.

The same people who say I’m ridiculous for believing in God are saying we’re being controlled by a computer simulation. I’ll stick to God, thanks

It’s a simulation inside of a simulation inside another simulation

This is to complicated
it sounds sad to be simulated, you die and cease to exist :(
Elon Musk is in the creative mod

This is all a simulation. We can’t create any more matter because the computer ran out of RAM

I kind of agree. no one can explain how the tiniest building blocks of matter, which are atoms, are perpetually electrified with protons and electrons as if they're actual energy devices (in essence perpetual energy machines which science say is impossible). We think about us humans being in a real world but I think it's highly likely we are currently just our consciousnesses downloaded onto these Avatars we call bodies.
