Physicists Say They May Have Evidence That The Universe Is A Computer Simulation
Posted: 05 Sep 2013 10:33 AM PDT
A long-proposed thought experiment, put forward by both philosophers and popular culture, points out that any civilisation of sufficient size and intelligence would eventually create a simulation universe if such a thing were possible.
Now a team of researchers at the University of Bonn in Germany led by Silas Beane say they have evidence this may be true.
In a paper named ‘Constraints on the Universe as a Numerical Simulation’, they point out that current simulations of the universe – which do exist, but which are extremely weak and small – naturally put limits on physical laws.
Technology Review explains that “the problem with all simulations is that the laws of physics, which appear continuous, have to be superimposed onto a discrete three dimensional lattice which advances in steps of time.”
What that basically means is that by just being a simulation, the computer would put limits on, for instance, the energy that particles can have within the program.
These limits would be experienced by those living within the sim – and as it turns out, something which looks just like these limits do in fact exist.
For instance, something known as the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin, or GZK cut off, is an apparent boundary of the energy that cosmic ray particles can have. This is caused by interaction with cosmic background radiation. But Beane and co’s paper argues that the pattern of this rule mirrors what you might expect from a computer simulation.
Naturally, at this point the science becomes pretty tricky to wade through – and we would advise you read the paper itself to try and get the full detail of the idea.
But the basic impression is an intriguing one.
Like a prisoner in a pitch-black cell, we may never be able to see the ‘walls’ of our prison — but through physics we may be able to reach out and touch them.
Nadine, I finally got time to go and see the link of the Matrix, after about 35 min. my head was bubbling . I plan to get the vid of the matrix. Its been some time but now I will see it in a different way. Theres more to it than what meets the eye, huh. Its all about mind control that the DC, Archons and the Visitors have laid upon us for quite sometime now. And as a rebel warrior light-worker this was one of the things that we had to learn when we began to awaken. I felt that same anger as Neo in the movie when he 1st awoke. And there's more to this awakening Event to come. We are now breaking this mind control called the Matrix. Seems to be a big part of the Ascension Event. I think we are taking a trip in the mind,maybe from the view point of a higher mind.Adonai
thank you for sharing!... this is soooo cool! :-D
Thanks all for the comments. I placed this blog because for many many years now we have all heard the phrase that we are living in an illusion, a dream like state, that this world, and everything around and in it is not real and thats including ourselves. The end result is non attachments and the realization that we are not these bodies but that we are spirit and our true reality is from the Spirit Realm in the higher Dimensions, which will help us when it comes time to Ascend into those higher Dimensions and still hold on to our sanity.

Very interesting Rev, thank you for sharing.....
That's incredible, Reverend. One theory in high school physics I remember was that if you point a flashlight in one direction, the light would theoretically return to the back of the flashlight. A computer simulation? That is a very deep thought. I can conceive that it's possible, in this dimension anyway.
like this thank for sharing
Like your article, and the image. You will like to see this video from Mark Passio Awesome how Mark so clearly uses the movie script the matrix to expose the real truth http://youtu.be/JvKEwr0iNA0
It might not be a popular concept since it seems so real, but in my memory it is a SIM. What gets ugly are the SIMS inside of SIMS on into infinity. Lost Babushkas - some of them.
Love & Light & Gratitude for your Brave Truth
With all due respect to the researchers involved, I think this is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard.
