Soooo, essentially this is The Matrix...
is that about right?
Not exactly like the Matrix. The idea is that if advanced technology is capable of simulating reality, this it's possible that this reality is just a simulation spawned by another reality. So there would be no way to unplug or wake up like Keanu in the Matrix.
Deserves about 3 minutes of discussion, certainly nowhere near the amount people are dedicating to it.
Allegory of the Cave, Plato.
it sounds like a Christopher Guest movie in the making.
Probability or not, makes no difference whatsoever.
the possibility of someone watching 23mins of this guy talk is slim to none.
MIT is doing the very thing this poindexter is yabbering about. Computer simulations have been running to recreate quantum chromodynamics, a theory that describes the nuclear forced that binds quarks and gluons into protons and neutrons, which then bind to form atomic nuclei. lattice spacing imposes a limit on the energy that particles can have, basicly nothing can exist smaller than the lattice itself. This means that if the universe as we know it is actually a computer simulation, there ought to be a cut off in the spectrum of high energy particles. And it just happens that there is exactly this kind of cut off in the energy of cosmic rays, a limit known as the Greisen–Zatsepin–Kuzmin (GZK) cut off. When reading this review I only understood the verbs so.. whatever. fuck you.
Study is from OCT2012

For your consideration...
Quantum theory is both destroying and reinforcing our versions of reality simultaneously. In describing the characteristics of black holes, it may have inadvertently been discovered that we are in actuality two-dimensional representations, that the third dimension is an illusion. On the other hand, string theory in the extreme macroscopic (think intergalactic and much beyond), infinite parallel universes, and eleven or more probable "dimensions" might explain the accounts of deja vu, ghosts, UFOs... maybe even the concept of God.

getting drunk with a bunch of theoretical physicists can be very fun... unfortunately they started writing all sorts of math equations I didn't get.. wish I didn't suck at calculus....
