Elon Musk, the real life Iron Man, says that we are living in a simulation. Like the game “The Sims”, according to Elon, you are the Sim. He stated that there is a one in billions, not a billion, but billions!, chance that reality is not a simulation. He went on to talk about how everything has advanced over the past 40 years, talking about how everyone used to play pong which was two rectangles and a dot to game consoles and now we have these insanely high tech virtual reality headsets to play games with. We are moving into the realm of augmented reality next and Musk believes that a super intelligent artificial intelligence has created the Universe as we know it. And that soon, after augmented reality and whatever comes after, future games may be indistinguishable from reality. He does have a point there.
