Interview with Nick Bostrom at the Future of Humanity Institute Oxford University – http://www.simulation-argument.com/ – The simulation argument is continuing to attract a great deal of attention. I regret that I cannot usually respond to individual queries about the argument. http://www.simulation-argument.com/si… ABSTRACT. This paper argues that at least one of the following propositions is true:
the human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a “posthuman” stage; any posthuman civilization is extremely unlikely to run a significant number of simulations of their evolutionary history (or variations thereof); we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation. It follows that the belief that there is a significant chance that we will one day become posthumans who run ancestor-simulations is false, unless we are currently living in a simulation. A number of other consequences of this result are also discussed.
The simulation hypothesis proposes that all of reality, including the earth and the universe, is in fact an artificial simulation, most likely a computer simulation. Some versions rely on the development of a simulated reality, a proposed technology that would seem realistic enough to convince its inhabitants. The hypothesis has been a central plot device of many science fiction stories and films.
