12 Clues You Live in a Simulated World: My Chicken Egg Theory

Clues You Live in a Simulated World: My Chicken Egg TheoryEver wonder if you live in a Simulated World? In this article I unpack the Simulation Hypothesis with a creative twist, offering twelve intriguing clues that suggest we might be in a cosmic video game. With references to Elon Musk, Nick Bostrom, and more, prepare to challenge your perception of reality!

Recently, there’s been a lot of debate about the Simulation Hypothesis, which suggests that our world might be nothing more than a giant computer program.

My first instincts: “Geez, that’s hard to believe!”

I mean, it sounds like a concept ripped straight from a sci-fi movie or an overly ambitious video game. It’s the kind of idea that makes you feel like you’ve watched one too many episodes of Black Mirror.

But I consider myself an open-minded and creative thinking person. So one morning while I was drinking coffee I was thinking about this Simulated World Theory. And a strange thought popped into my mind – which actually made me consider believing we could be living in a simulated world.

Here’s my Simulated World Proof:

You know that age old question:  Which came first the chicken or the egg?

It’s a question that has stumped people for eons.

But what if the answer is simpler than we’ve imagined?

What if neither came first – and the chicken and egg showed up at the same time?

In a simulated universe, that would be possible!

Because in a simulated world, there’s no need to wait for biological evolution. Instead, a cosmic coder can just drop both the chicken and the egg onto the cosmic stage at the same time.

Sounds crazy, right? But here’s the thing: if we were living in a simulated universe, this scenario wouldn’t just be possible, it would be expected.

I confess I feel a bit hesitant to be on the side of people who believe our world is just a simulation. But maybe I shouldn’t resist this belief. After all, there’s a growing number of highly intelligent and respected individuals who believe in the idea of a simulated universe.

More (And More) People Believe In A Simulated World

Elon Musk, the forward-thinking CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, is a believer. He has spoken publicly about the Simulation Hypothesis, proposing that the speed at which video game technology is improving suggests we’ll soon have games that are indistinguishable from our reality. If that’s the case, how can we be certain that our reality isn’t already one of those games?

And it’s not just tech gurus who are contemplating this theory. The concept has crossed into academic territory too. Nick Bostrom, a philosopher from Oxford University, has given this idea considerable thought. Back in 2003, he published a detailed paper on the Simulation Hypothesis, suggesting that a civilization with advanced computing power could potentially run ancestor simulations – essentially hyper-realistic video games depicting their evolutionary history.

This thought intrigued me. So, I did what any mildly obsessed, caffeine-fueled person would do. I looked for more signs of our potentially pixelated existence. And guess what? I found them.

12 Clues You’re Living in a Simulated World

Here are a 12 quirky clues that might make you question the fabric of our reality.

1. Chicken and Egg Show up Together

Picture a video game where the designer can drop a whole fully formed ecosystem – trees, animals, buildings, everything – into a world, all at once. Now think about that with the chicken and egg conundrum. In our cosmic game, they could have just popped up together, no evolution necessary.

2. God, the Programmer

This might ruffle some feathers, but what if all the miraculous events and divine interventions we read about in religious texts are actually…software updates? If we’re in a simulation, these “miracles” could simply be code modifications, much like game developers tweaking a game after it’s released.

3. Next Level: Afterlife

We all wonder about what comes after we kick the bucket. Heaven, hell, reincarnation, it’s all been speculated. What if these are simply different levels or stages in this cosmic simulation? Death would then just be a transition, like moving from one scene of a game to the next.

4. Future Visions: Sneak Peeks

When prophets get visions of the future, could they be getting an early look at planned updates or changes in our simulated universe? It’s like when gamers catch wind of a new feature before it’s officially released.

5. Quantum Weirdness: Glitches or Shortcuts

Quantum physics is a brain-bender. Particles being in multiple places at once, connecting over vast distances… it’s weird. And all those strange synchronicities and coincidences? Could these strange things be glitches or maybe shortcuts in the cosmic code?

6. The Perfect Universe: Premade Settings

The universe is just right for life. Too perfect, some say. But what if these aren’t happy coincidences? Maybe our simulator carefully selected the settings to allow life to thrive.

7. Déjà Vu: Loop in the Code

That eerie feeling of living the same moment twice, déjà vu, could be a sign of a temporary loop in our cosmic programming, like when a video game character keeps repeating the same action due to a bug.

8. The Fermi Paradox: Waiting for Players

With all the potentially habitable worlds out there, you’ve got to wonder: Where is everybody? Are we early in the game, waiting for other players? Or are there civilizations out there we’re just not programmed to see?

9. Black Holes: Recycling Bins

Black holes are space’s mysteries, swallowing everything, even light. Could they serve a purpose in our simulation, like a recycling bin or a way to delete unnecessary data?

10. Dreams: Sandbox Mode

Dreams can be wild, bending the rules of reality as we know it. Could these be instances of us testing various scenarios or exploring other sections of the simulation, like a sandbox mode in a video game?

11. The Speed of Light: Loading Time

The speed of light is the cosmic speed limit, nothing can go faster. But what if this is simply our simulation’s loading time or processing speed? Like in a video game, no matter how fast your car, you can’t go beyond the game’s maximum speed limit.

12. Human Progress: Fast Forward

Technology has advanced so quickly in the last hundred years, it’s mind-boggling. From horse-drawn carriages to self-driving cars, from telegrams to instant messages across the globe. Could this be a sign that our simulation is on fast-forward, progressing at a pace designed to keep us, the simulated inhabitants, constantly on our toes and engaged in the game?

Conclusion: Simulation Hypothesis

The next time you find yourself pondering the chicken and egg dilemma, consider this: Maybe they both showed up together, coded into existence by a cosmic programmer. Because who knows, we might all be part of the game.
