Living In The Matrix

First I would like to ask…just what about the UK royals fascinate us Americans so damn much?

The weekend….that magical time of the week when I can step back from the insanity of the news cycle and look into something interesting, weird or just funny…..

A show of hands please….how many saw the film “The Matrix”?

I saw all three and I understand there is at least one sequel in the works…..the first film was good but I did not think much of the two sequels…..

I bring this up because a neuroscientist that says we are actually living in a simulation…..

It turns out none of us have actually experienced real life – it’s just a simulation that our brain makes up, a neuroscientist has explained.

Essentially, our brain gets all of its information from our sensory organs. The catch is that there is a lot of information in our external environment that our sensory organs either can’t perceive.

All of this has been laid out by TikTok user jacostak, who explains why we’re actually living inside a simulation. But viewers should be warned that it can send him into an existential crisis when he thinks about it too long.

‘All of our sensory systems have evolved to pick up relevant information in our external environment. For instance, our eyes are sensory organs that have evolved to pick up light from the electromagnetic spectrum,’ he begins, adding that our eyes then relay that information back to the brain, which makes sense of what we have just seen.

But, what many people don’t realise is that we can only perceive a tiny snippet of electromagnetic waves.

Okay this gets a bit deep….and at one point all I could think was TMI…..

Whatcha you guys think?

Are we living in a Matrix like simulation?

  1. I only liked the first film, the sequels seemed to be unnecessary to me.
    But if I am living in a Matrix, why am I walking my dog in such awful weather? Surely my brain would create nice weather for dog-walking? 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. May I write something funny, for once? I tend not to think of a simulation, that is too strong. Because if you look at our political employees, they would have to live in a second simulation. How could they then rule us from their simulation? 😉
    More seriously, one could speak of a kind of “simulation”, given the limitations of our senses. But I wouldn’t let electronic sensors expand my senses, if i would be told by third. That only leads to experiments for wars again. Michael
