Is this the real world?
Are we the real human beings?
May be this is not the real world,
We are living in a computer simulation!
We are the programs of computer!
This article reveals you the possibility that right now we might be living in a computer simulation and also gives you best argument for GODS existence.
Posthuman stage: beginning of new civilization (or) a stage at which humans have the technology to simulate people in computer.
At least one of the following propositions is true:
1) The human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching posthuman stage.
2) Posthuman civilization though they have the technology they are not interested in running simulations.
3) We are almost certainly living in a computer simulation.
Many serious technologists and futurologists predicts that enormous amount of computing power will be available in future. Let us suppose for a moment that these predictions are correct. The later generations might run simulations of their ancestors with their super powerful computers. If these simulated people are conscious. Then it could be the case that vast majority of minds like ours do not belong to original race but rather to people simulated by advanced decedents of an original race. If this is case most of us most of us belongs to simulated minds rather than original biological ones.
This proposition not only means that we are going to extinct soon. It also says that future technology may collapse and primitive humans may live. We may extinct because of powerful technology in third world war or due to some astronomical disturbances like meteorite collision (one such collision is ready to occur around in 2035. now scientists are working on it).
Fraction of posthuman civilizations that are interested in running ancestral simulation is negligibly small.
The following may be the reasons:
a) Virtually no posthuman civilizations decide to use their resources to run large number of ancestral simulations.
b) Advanced civilization may prohibit running ancestral simulations because of suffering inflicted on the inhabitants of the simulation.
c) Posthuman civilization may develop in a way they loose their desire to run ancestor simulations.
d) Scientifically they may have no use of running such simulations. Perhaps running such simulation is a recreation activity of getting pleasure, which can be obtained more cheaply by direct simulation of their brains.
e) Posthuman society is very different from present society. They may not be free to act on their own desires.
If we are living in a computer simulation then the universe that we observing is just a tiny piece of totality of physical existence.
· The physics in the universe where the computer is situated that is running the simulation may or may not resemble the physics of the world we observe.
· It may be possible for simulated civilization to become posthuman civilization to become posthuman. They may run their own simulations on powerful computers they build in their simulated universe.
· If we do go on to create our own ancestor simulations we would therefore have to conclude that we live in simulation. Moreover, we would have to suspect that the posthumans running our simulations are themselves simulated beings, and their creation in turn may also be simulated beings.
A best argument for GOD’S existence:
The posthumans running simulations are like gods in relation to people inhibiting the simulation. The post human created the world we see; they are of superior intelligence they are “omnipotent” in sense they can interfere in the workings of our world even in ways that violate its physical laws and they are omniscient .in the sense they can monitor everything that happens.
For the inhabitants living in the computer simulation may have possibility that their actions on their own level may effect the treatment they receive from dwellers of deeper levels. For example if you are not from the original race you should consider the possibility that your actions will be rewarded or punished, based on your moral criteria by your simulators. An after life would be real possibility. So be careful our simulators are watching us behave morally.
Making us blind from the truth:
More over a posthuman simulator would have enough computing power to keep track of the detailed belief states in all human brains at all times. Therefore when it saw that a human was about to make an observation of the microscopic world, it would fill in sufficient detail in the simulation in the appropriate domain on an as needed basis. If any error occurs, the director could easily edit the states of any brains that have become aware of an anomaly before it spoils the simulation. Alternatively the director could skip back few seconds and rerun the simulation in a way that avoids the problem.
Finally: unless we are now living in a simulation our decedents will almost certainly never run an ancestor simulation.
