Are We Living In A Computer Simulation? These Billionaires Think So

“Are we living in a computer simulation?” It’s an age old question made popular by The Matrix. But you won’t find Keanu Reeves or Samuel L Jackson here. And you won’t take a red or blue pill to determine whether you exist in The Matrix.

No, this story is very real.

Two tech billionaires are absolutely certain that we are living in a computer simulation. And they’re not the only ones.

The idea that the world is a computer simulation is very popular amongst Silicon Valley’s tech elites. And The New Yorker is reporting that two of those elites are paying scientists to find a way out of the simulation they believe we’re living in.

The New Yorker reports, “Many people in Silicon Valley have become obsessed with the simulation hypothesis, the argument that what we experience as reality is in fact fabricated in a computer; two tech billionaires have gone so far as to secretly engage scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation.”

One of those billionaires to believe in the computer-simulated world is 31 year old Sam Altman.

Samuel H. “Sam” Altman is an American entrepreneur, programmer, venture capitalist and blogger. The multi-millionaire made his first million aged eighteen with his tech start-up Loopt, a social networking app. Since then he’s invested in the likes of Zenefits, rumoured to be worth $1 billion.

Altman believes that we are living in a computer simulated world and that we humans are merely character in that world.

The New Yorker did not divulge the names of the two billionaires involved. But they are claiming that multi-millions are being given to scientists in the hope of finding a way out of this computer-simulated world.

    I believe, that this is true from certain perspective. I believe, that thoughts become things. Everything what was ever created become as thought first. But right now in our civilization, only way how to materialize thoughts what we know, is by our hands and manual effort. And I believe that this will change in distance future.

    Our thoughts basically adding thought form to universal energy which just is. Our physical world is nothing else as thought form created by somebody very powerful with thought manifesting in the past. Fantasy? Could be. Will see 100 000 years from now 🙂
