What are the odds that we are living in a computer simulation? Interestingly, a report from the Bank of America claimed there is around a 50 percent chance that civilization as we know it is living in a simulation. Now BILLIONAIRES have gathered to fund a secret project that could help us exit the ‘Matrix’.
Some of our planet’s richest and most powerful people, including Elon Musk (because nothing can happen without Elon) and Bank of America, think that we live in a simulation of the real world. In fact, they are so convinced of this that they are secretly funding scientists to help break us out of it.
Have you ever had that feeling that everything around us seems unreal? Well, it seems that super-rich entrepreneurs agree and cannot shake off the feeling we are living inside a computer sim. Think of it like the Matrix.
This ‘strange feeling’ has created quite a buzz in recent months and in fact, some really rich guys are convinced everything around us is a simulation. This is why TECH Giants may be secretly FUNDING a research that could help us break out from the Matrix. Sort of.
Sam Altman, head of famed Californian start-up Y Combinator spoke to the New Yorker about the challenges that surround artificial intelligence saying: We enslave the AI or it enslaves us.’
He continues: ‘the full-on-crazy version of the merge is we get our brains uploaded into the cloud…We need to level up humans because our descendants will either conquer the galaxy or extinguish consciousness in the universe forever.’
Ted Friend from the New Yorkers explains it:
“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,” wrote Mr. Friend.
However, the article from the New Yorkers doesn’t reveal the multibillionaires by name, nor does it suggest Sam Altman is one of them who is funding the secret project.
So… Who’s funding the secret research?
Business Insider speculates that these billionaires are Peter Thiel –close friend of Sam Altman, philanthropist, co-founder of PayPal and an early investor in Facebook – and Elon Musk. Cause nothing like this can happen without Musk. Musk this, Musk that.
Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX –the company that will most likely take us to Mars— Tesla Motors and co-founder (together with Altman) of Open AI, a company that studies artificial intelligence said that there is only one chance in billions that we are living a real life and not a simulation created by a computer.
Curiously, a report from the Bank of America claimed there is around a 50 percent chance that civilization as we know it is living in a simulation.
Are you ready to break free from the Matrix?
