The hypothesis that reality could be simulated—for example by computer simulation—to a degree indistinguishable from “true” reality. It could contain conscious minds which may or may not be fully aware that they are living inside a simulation. –Wikipedia
Pretty crazy, right? I’ve been reading quite a few articles about this theory lately. It’s been around for a while, but I think with the advancement of computer graphics, it’s starting to make its it way into the mainstream news cycles. The average person these days can experience Virtual Reality through VR headsets like Oculus Rift and even using their cell phone.
After reading a some of these articles the last few weeks, I decided to play around with it and use it as a prompt for this image. The image above is the illustration that resulted from reading the articles. It illustrates a few of the ideas theorized in the text, such as we are a simulation created by humans in the future. Yeah…. just going to let that sit there.
