According to some scientists, we are living in the Matrix and our universe is fake!
Have you ever thought about the possibility that we might be living in a Matrix, just like Neo from the homonymous movie? If you’re one of those people, who simply love Matrix conspiracy theories, then you’ll like this one.
The British Metro reported that some scientists are convinced that we’re living in the Matrix and that our universe is actually fake. The scientists claim that we aren’t really living in reality and that the world we know isn’t real. Just like Neo once learned that he and his people were living a lie and were being fed illusions about the real life, experts believe our own brains are being “charged” with false information. They claim that the world we think we live in is actually nothing more but a simple perspective, which has been programmed into our minds on purpose. Some experts, like Closer to Truth’s host Robert Lawrence Kuhn, are convinced that everything is just an illusion, because the world we are living in obeys several quite simple mathematical laws – and it’s common knowledge that computer programs operate on mathematical laws and algorithms.
Thus, they claim everything might be computer generated.
Others, such as Nick Bostrom, go even further in their Matrix theories. Bostrom is a professor at the Oxford University and he claims that our brains aren’t “fed” fake illusions. According to him, our brains are also part of the whole simulation of an illusionary world. He claims that “one big computer program” is actually simulating not only our universe, but also our brains “down to neurons and synapses”.
So, are we really living in the Matrix? And if so, who is standing behind all of it?
