Implications of Considering Simulation Theory

In my previous post for this task, entitled Simulation Theory & Conjectures of Post-Humanity, I broke down the reasoning behind Bostrom’s hypothesis that we are living in a computer simulation. Assuming, as this theory argues, that it’s not impossible that we are living in a simulation, henceforth I will discuss the implications of considering these ideas. Simulation […]

I came across the ideas of Swedish philosopher, Nick Bostram, last semester, and published a similar blog post to this one on my other blog. I’ve always thought that the idea of our world being a simulation was kind of funny, but Bostram argues it’s actually plausible and his reasoning is hard to deny. The whole theory depends […]
