Holy Priest Kings Batman! Maybe they do exist.......

Postby Elle Couerblanc » Wed Dec 19, 2012 6:29 pm

In 2003, British philosopher Nick Bostrom published a paper that proposed the universe we live in might in fact really be a numerical computer simulation. To give this a bizarre Twilight Zone twist, he suggested that our far-evolved distant descendants might construct such a program to simulate the past and recreate how their remote ancestors lived.

He felt that such an experiment was inevitable for a supercivilization. If it didn't happen by now, then in meant that humanity never evolved that far and we're doomed to a short lifespan as a species, he argued.

Reminds me of my time travelling worries and it's kinda frustrating. Let's face it, we utterly fail as a species! :(
