The universe has had us baffled since the beginning of time. None of us have a concrete answer as to where we came from, what we are supposed to be doing, and who put us here.
Although there is no concrete answer to where the universe came from, there are some interesting theories. Many important scientists, researchers, and physicists have amazing theories when it comes to this topic. Take Elon Musk for example. Elon Musk was in important inventor, researcher, and scientist who contributed a ton to society today. His theory is that the universe is a computer simulation, and some physicists leaked evidence that suggests he was correct.
In a paper named ‘Constraints on the Universe as a Numerical Simulation’, they point out that current simulations of the universe – which do exist, but are extremely weak and small – naturally put limits on physical laws. “the problem with all simulations is that the laws of physics, which appear continuous, have to be superimposed onto a discrete three dimensional lattice which advances in steps of time,” Technology Review explains.
Musk’s theory is a lot like that of the video game, the sims. If Musk is correct, and the universe is a video game, who is playing it? Is someone playing it? See what Musk himself says about it below.
