Welcome to the Matrix! Physicist Tom Campbell on Simulation Theory, Quantum Weirdness and Consciousness (PART 1)
The idea that we’re living in some sort of simulated universe makes a lot of people supremely uncomfortable. Unfortunately for them, the logic behind the simulation argument is pretty sound
This conversation goes all over the place (in the best possible way). But, if I had to boil it down, I’d say it’s all about evading the awe-sucking tentacles of society’s deeply-entrenched dogma dealers and power structures.
