A little weekend reading to get you navel-gazing: why not read through this website which asks the question “Are you living in a computer simulation?”
This website features scholarly investigations into the idea that you might currently be literally living in a computer simulation, running on a computer built by some advanced civilization. Films like The Matrix and novels like Greg Egan’s Permutation City have explored the idea that we might be living in virtual reality. But what evidence is there for or against this hypothesis? And what are its implications?
The website features the original paper by Nick Bostrum PhD, which started quite a media storm a couple of years when it was first published. Also on site are a number of other papers arguing different points about the simulation hypothesis. Well worth a browse.
