The Simulation theory hypothesis
On this Podcast we seek to tear open the veil of space and time and peer into the code hidden within. Simulation Theory poses the idea we all live in a simulated universe, and perhaps we may even be simulations ourselves. This science fiction story line is not as hypothetical as it first seems. Some of the brightest minds of our time are the main proponents behind this unusual idea and the debate surrounding the theory grows daily. With many disciplines of science and a wealth of human philosophy combining to create a persuasive conundrum that would seek to question all reality and the bounds of consciousness. We’ll cover the intriguing premise of the main hypothesis and the unfolding of the simulation theory debate.
The Code inherent
The hard evidence presented by those who espouse Simulation theory point to numerous discoveries, breakthroughs and known unknowns over varied scientific disciplines. The work of physicists in the fields of String Theory and Quantum Mechanics are referenced. As are the noted thought experiments of Erwin Schrödinger and Thomas Young. But outside the theoretical the notion we exist inside a Matrix style artificial construct brings with it the questions of natural evidence. And here citations of James Gates and the Fibonacci sequence speak of mathematical, geometric and even programming code inherent in the nature of reality. We’ll talk about all the biological and physical evidence and the cutting edge science of artificial intelligence and virtual reality that underpin the Simulation Theory.
The Philosophical account
Since the dawning of sentience human kind has created philosophical record of the questioning of the reality in which we exist and the perception of consciousness. Ancient accounts of a collective consideration of the true experience of existence are dotted throughout history. From Buddhist and Hindu texts to the thought provoking debate of Plato as a race it seems we have always felt ill at ease with our perception of reality. But with the unstoppable modern movement for research and development into mind expanding technologies the philosophical questions move into the arena of predicting the hypothetical consciousness singularity moment and the very real danger we have already passed the threshold into an artificial world. We’ll discuss the sublime to the absurd across all the theory and philosophy.
