  • There is one another thing that I don't see addressed anywhere (perhaps because it is a bad idea, but I thought it looked interesting):
    Why wouldn't you construct a simulation that doesn't represent the world?
    Say, we create AI, the AI has senses and you feed it information about, say, a minecraft world.
    After a few years/hundreds of years of playing the game the AI figures out most of the rules about how its universe works and creates a redstone computer that can simulate a whole chunk of the world.
    After that the AI wonders: could it be in a simulation? It constantly discovers new stuff (since updates roll out, for example) and it might have an idea for displays and inputs of redstone contraptions that could potentially simulate the whole world (say screen is an updating map).
    It then does the thinking and concludes, relivingly, that there wouldn't be enough space in the entire world to power up a redstone machine that could simulate such things. So, it is not in a simulation.

    Now, imagine if we are in a similar situation, maybe our simulation doesn't represent the "reality" at all.

  • If I was in a simulation, the people controlling me would most likely not allow me to have this thought of being in a simulation.
    Therefore, I do not believe we are in a simulation.
    Cool idea though.

  • Very interesting video but if we are simulated home come we made up the word simulation? Maybe all are mobile and online games are simulations of other beings we just are playing as them. If this is true and the power cable does get un-p what would happen?

  • so year 2020 is the new version of earth simulation and the countries that don't have coronavirus in their countries are the users that didn't update their games yet?

  • But to simulate a simulator you need something real (alive) to begin with, right? End of discussion.

  • "Advanced civilizations don't destroy themselves" : well, even if the great filter is real in "our" universe, it don't imply that it is true in the "real" universe, the non-simulated one. So it is clearly impossible to test this hypothesis, nor the 4 others, because we only can test them in "our" universe". The aliens making the simulation maybe want to test a universe with the "Great Filter" option On ! 🙂

  • So after the enlightenment, scientific revolution, centuries of scientific progress, billions spent on space exploration and research, we've discovered God might exist after all?

  • Im going to be honest, I dont get this at all, or the point of this theory. Im so confused on why its important to many people. Like even if we are in a simluation. How does it affect us? Can someone explain this to me? Im so confused
