Did you know that there are good reasons to believe we might be living in a matrix? In May NASA scientists speculated that what perceive as reality may in fact be part of a virtual world. According to their theory futuristic beings—human or otherwise—could be using virtual reality to simulate a time in the past or re-create how their remote ancestors (that would be us) lived. Further, British philosopher Nick Bostrom recently suggested that a race of far-evolved descendants could be behind our digital imprisonment. In other words, we are the product of a highly advanced computer code and we do what we’re programmed to do. So are we living in a simulated reality? Is every relationship, every sentiment, every memory a product of banks of supercomputers? The evidence may surprise you.
Even though these scenarios may seem unlikely and they could almost pass as script for a science-fiction film, there are a few signs one should consider before completely rejecting these seemingly wild theories. So how much control do we really have over our lives? How logical are our everyday decisions? The answer is enough to make anyone uncomfortable. Here are 25 Reasons To Believe We Might Be Living In A Matrix.
