The Simulation Hypothesis

It was Max Planck who stated, “there is no ‘matter’ as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force… We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.”

Is reality real? What if you woke up one day and realized that what you thought was reality is really a simulation and that this simulation is being generated by a system that you can contact with your mind? Scientists such as physicists and cosmologists believe that we are actually participating in the creation of the reality that we live in. In the digital age science is beginning to see a correlation between our world and the world of a virtual reality.

Plato built his philosophy of Idealism on the concept that the atom isn’t the basic underlying structure of all that exists, but that abstract mental forms determine an object’s properties. Plato believed that ideas are more fundamental than objects. In other words, everything begins with consciousness.

The age-old debate of whether matter gives rise to mind or mind gives rise to matter has finally been settled by science. Many scientists have explored the concept of our world being virtual or dream-like. Dr. Brian Whitworth, a systems analyst from the University of Massey took the two opposing views: Materialism; which supports that our universe is entirely physical and the Simulation Hypothesis; which declares that our universe exists as a virtual construct. He compared both and concluded that scientifically, our universe makes more sense when viewed as a virtual construct from consciousness rather than simply matter existing independently of the mind.

There seems to be evidence of computer programming in nature. Theoretical physicist Sylvester James Gate has actually found computer codes—strings of bits of ones and zeros— hidden deeply in the equations that define super symmetry.

Prior to observation, matter doesn’t seem to exist. Matter seems to be the result of an interaction between consciousness and waves of potential. This has been repeatedly demonstrated from the 1920s right to today through the double-slit experiment.

Most scientists now believe that materialism is not a valid worldview. Physicists now accept that particles do not exist as objects in the absence of observation. They exist only as waves, which transform into particles when observed. These waves are intangible and are a probabilistic description of where the waves might be if they were checked on. The waves that transform into a particle are only waves of potentiality. As Werner Heisenberg stated: “The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real, they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts.”

Does all of this mean that it’s possible for us to ‘hack’ the system and change our reality? Watch this mind-blowing film now.
