    I believe very likely, but I can’t shake the feeling that this is base reality.

      this is some /x/ shit, but it's nicer to read than the endless philosophical wheel-spinning over the same subject. both approaches are equally unproductive.
      the development of VR and AI can't be used to make this sort of judgment. you'd need to know how the world the simulation hardware is running in works, whether the laws of physics are the same etc.
      it's not very pragmatic to try to grapple with unobservable shit using your BRAIN, and with obsession it can lead to insanity.

        I ask because of this recent perhaps thought provoking article, and it made me realize we are so much closer to creating the real life Matrix today than just 5 years ago. It made me wonder if we're already living in a simulation by alien beings

          i think if there were/is a way to tell, it will become clear once we're advanced enough.
          it's sort of like when a teenager gets worried about locking down a quality life partner, it's something that ought to take care of itself if we do things right.
          until that point, wonder is good, but don't get too bugged out over it

          This isn't a new conclusion made by someone somewhat educated in technology and philosophy, but the points regarding the recent developments of GPT and DALLE do support his reasonings we are heading toward creating the matrix within the next hundred years

              The elites will inevitably build it, to keep the masses entertained and enslaved partly in terms of pity, otherwise to control . Meanwhile the child harvesters of adrenchrome will live on in their mansions in the real world, with robots doing all the work.

                That sounds like the same shit but far more expensive. Anyway most apes deserve to be slaves, they can't even be called humans.

                not expensive when super intelligent AGI invents it and robots do all the building

    ITT:
    >Is the material world dependent (or build upon) the world of thoughts/ideas (such as in Matrix or even dream universe theories) OR is it the world of thoughts and ideas that's dependent upon the physical world (aka materialism)

    However, I would ask: Why not both? Why can't it be a recursive function? One built upon the other, which is built upon the other, so on and so on, with out a start OR end. What if there is no "base reality" and the expression "turtles all the way down" applies simply because it's an illusion created by it's recursive nature.

    You people who say this: What do you actually imagine? Because there has to be a base reality. Do you think of it like the matrix?

    You are already an active pseudo agent inside a conscious simulation.

    If you're asking how likely is that our universe is computationally-based, as in Stephen Wolfram's theories, then imo 100%.

    0%. The only people who think life is a simulation (and by extension religious people) are subscribing to a metaphysical belief to feel as if their lives and events in them have a purpose and reason and they view coincidences and events and such as synchronicities that cannot possibly be explained. This is the result of a small brain, population density, and doing events where things happen (dating apps). The more going ons a person has, and inflated sense of importance, the more likely they are to think bog or simulation dun did it. This thread is riddled with average IQ midwits, probably were raised in cities or suburbs their whole lives and opining only to feel as if their experiences mean something. There is no scientific basis or proof to any of it. Even the remotest justification for it, the BBT, has fallen apart so they can't say 'simulation man did it see the universe has a start point and had to be created' anymore.

    you inhabit both reality and the simulation, simultaneously

    Zero, not even a kardashev type 3 civ could do it, because reality is too complex to simulate

      for this reality/universe. how would we know the calculation limit of a universe containing ours?

      • 2 months ago

        What does calculation limit have to do with it, if you wanted to simulate a reality the only way to do that would be to physically create said reality, "simulating" with a computer would do jack shit, it's no more alive than a battery, reality is an inherently qualitative system, that's why things like mathematics and physics devolve states into numbers, to predict outcomes based on known variables and their interactions, but it doesn't describe what reality is, because ultimately it can't be quantified and thus is noncomputable or simulatable in any way, all you can create are empty imitations

          isn't that what a computer is? it's something we physically created to simulate Elden Ring world (as a random example)?
          it's like you're trying to say that our reality's rules are part of root reality's rules, just that somehow walled? I don't get what you're trying to say

            No? If you haven't noticed yet real life is made of more things than flowing electrons

    Does it actually matter if the world is a simulation or not?

    When you are asleep and dream at night, is this not living in a simulated reality?
    Or is are you living in the simulated reality when you are awake? Are you awake right now?
