The Matrix Conspiracy Theory Outline Esteban Sanchez May 21, 2020 I. II. Introduction 1. Are we living in the matrix where all of our thoughts and what we do are controlled by the government? a. Rizwan Virk, a computer scientist and the author of the new book “The Simulation Hypothesis” told Vox that he also thinks “there’s a very good chance we are, in fact living in a simulation.” b. Scientist can’t prove we are in a simulation but they have plenty or evidence that point to it c. Nuclear Physicist Silar Beane and some colleagues suggested in a 2014 paper that perhaps that mass simulation we could be living in would use that same coordinate system. 2. We are being controlled by the government in a computer and they control and monitor our every move. a. “If we’re indeed a simulation, then that would be a logical possibility, that what we’re measuring aren’t really the laws of nature, they’re some sort of attempt at some sort of artificial law that the simulators have come up with.” b. Elon musk said in one of his teds talks that there is 1 in a million chance that we are living in a simulation c. Some believe that they way humanity will end itself of with its own advancements. 3. We are just a simulation. a. In Bostrom’s paper he suggests that we are being controlled by post humans controlling other in simulation b. His paper was written in 2003 4 years after the first matrix movies come out. c. Many scientists believe that we are living in a simulation d. “the movie’s protagonist, Neo, discovers that his reality isn’t real. Instead, Neo’s world is a vast simulation orchestrated by hyper-evolved AL that harvest humans for the energy.” e. Many believe that we are being controlled by a super computer We are controlled with every move 4. Could be just a videogame a. “Now 40 years later we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. And soon we’ll have virtual reality, we’ll have augmented reality. III. b. We have video games where we control characters and what if we are a video game of life and when we forget what we could be like the game of life and when we forget what we could be like that me sims where you can cancel your character’s thought. c. Video games have become so advanced that we have virtual reality and this quote form elon musk is fast coming true. d. “if you assume any rate of improving at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality, just indistinguishable” e. Musk believes that we are likely already living in a computer simulation, created by an advance future civilization. 5. We have sent billings sending probes into space to find aliens, how haven’t we found them yet. a. NASA and other space companies have spent billions on sending probes into space try to find extraterrestrials how haven’t we found any yet. b. It can be by a super computer we are being run by. c. Or they found a way to escape the simulation d. Or they are the ones controlling the simulation e. The evidence to support these claims is extraterrestrials would be way more advanced than us and either found us or we would have found them by now. 6. Clime change and natural disasters a. “our civilizations are set on the cusp of environmental chaos, suggesting we could be an ancestor simulation created in hopes that we show our creators how to solve an energy crisis. b. In the game sim city, you can create your own city and send natural disaster and clime change to the city c. That could be happening right now because we could be in a simulation where they can change the climate and natural disasters Conclusion 7. Are We living in the matrix where all of our thoughts and what we do are controlled by the government 8. We are being controlled by the government in a computer and they control and monitor our every more 9. We are just a simulation 10. Overall, we should put more research in on us being just a simulation and we need to figure out if we are just a simulation.
