Last week, Bank of America Merril Lynch claimed that there are around 50% chances that we are living in the Matrix world that simply means the world we think as “real” can be a simulation.
Are We Living In Neo’s Matrix? Our World Could Be a Simulation
If you ever watched Matrix Trilogy then you must know the Character NEO. Neo realises he is living in a simulation in which nothing is real. Matrix is the story of a computer hacker learns from mysterious rebels about the true nature of his reality and his role in the war against its controllers.
According to the Bank of America, the story and plot line could be the reality. Bank of America says that there are around 50% chances that we are living in the Matrix world that simply means the world we think as “real” can be a simulation.
The report that was distributed to clients even claimed that even if our world was an illusion just like shown in the movie Matrix, we would never know about it. According to Business Insider, previous week, Merril Lynch, bank’s wealth management company sent out a note to investors which outline their Matrix Theory.
The note said “Many scientists, philosophers, and business leaders believe that there is a 20-50% probability that humans are already living in a computer-simulated virtual world”
“In April 2016, researchers gathered at the American Museum of Natural History to debate this notion. The argument is that we are already approaching photorealistic 3D simulations that millions of people can simultaneously participate in.
“It is conceivable that with advancements in artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and computing power, members of future civilisations could have decided to run a simulation of their ancestors.
“Unless we are now living in a simulation, our descendants will almost certainly never run an ancestor-simulation,”
Researchers have predicted that this could be an overwhelming reality. However, they neglected to mention whether there was any way out incase if it turned out to be true. It is also unclear what the investment recommendations are for the Bank of America.
