Elon Musk thinks we are living in a simulated reality. Nick Bostrom think those chances are more around 20 percent. The chances of human kind participating in a simulated reality is broken down into three options: 1) humans go extinct before we are able to run a simulation of this size. 2) Humans are uninterested in running ancestor simulations. 3) We are currently participating in the simulation.

  1. We cannot be in a simulation. If you say we are then it would mean that the simulator is trying to control 7.9 billion people at once and according to the butterfly effect,any small change in the environment will cause a drastic change in the system, so it means they will also have to control the insects, the air and everything to ensure that they are in total control. Which is impossible and complicated and necessary if we are to assume that the simulator is very advanced and intelligent. Check out its cool podcast on Spotify,it will shave all your doubts: @t

  2. Well Elon never said we are living in a simulation lol. He said there is a one in billions chance we are living in one, and he believes just that. Not that we are living in one
