In the beginning, they substituted the ways we started boring ourselves online. They made changes in taxis and hotels and revolutionized financial transactions. They even revolutionized the light bulbs that they will not get switched on until or unless the right driver is installed. Now, for sure that they want nothing but to destroy this Universe.
This news was published in a New Yorker profile of Silicon Valley without any comment or any attribution. This was explained in short that it might be our first warning of the world’s complete final destruction. Several people in Silicon Valley were monopolized with the simulation hypothesis. Such an argument that says; whatever we are experiencing, we notice, we do even our existence that we assume to be real, might be programmed in a computer. Two tech billionaires are working hard and engaging scientists to break and take us out of this simulation.
Such lines have been frequently repeated in all the usual news sites, generally as small funny stories; nerds versus the Matrix, tech shamans, and their crazy philosophical theories, without thinking what it would mean. Let’s leave assuming anything about the idea of simulation or hypothesis for a moment and observe what these people are precisely trying to convince.
There are two billionaires among them; Elon Musk is highly convinced, and they say that this idea has brought them to the shining reality. But if we talk about ordinary people like us who experience the complete opposite, we feel like we lose our home, lost family, lose everything around us. Whether it is a simulation or not, it will go extinct. Comic-books and movies are spreading simulated story universes and upbringing the stakes to this level for years. Every season, we see several devils who plan to destroy the Universe, but their result comes with more comfort. Maybe now we know the reason why these baddies want to ruin the entire Universe again.
This is the fact that there is nobody who asked us if we want the end of this world or not. They are just trying to end it. It is Silicon Valley that works in solving the problems that do not exist yet. Now, tech products seem to be forced on the public, not as an offer. A person with a great vision keeps his eye on everyone, whatever they are doing, and determines to change it alone. Its result most of the time is common, but it all means something.
Only a few people survive luxury lives; the reality is being changed that we own our lives less. And these tech billionaires are automating many more decent-paying jobs. They have imposed such a technology that jobs which were being done by a human, now it’s replaced by machines. They are turning humankind into an unthankful sea of excess flesh. If the social reality is the property of those ornamental thinkers, why should this physical reality not be next? Calico of Google demanded a hedge-fund investment for the Transformative Technologies Lab and human immortality to externalize human consciousness, the industry expanding into territory once closed the occult. The destiny of the entire Universe should not be in the hand of a programmer who tries to hide from the California sun; the reason is they may destroy the Universe whenever they wish to do so.
The theory about computer simulation might be new to everyone; it believes in a simulated reality. It means everything we assume to be real and even our existence are not real but simulated. The argument on simulation hypothesis was introduced by a famous Swedish Philosopher, Nick Bostrom. He said that our posthuman might have such a massive computing power that can allow them to run a great many simulations. If it is so, they might have already done that. They might have created a realistic virtual reality that is entirely identical to real life. And in this case, there is highly likely that we are also one of their simulations. Elon Musk is not alone to say that there is a one in a billion chance we live in base reality. Bank of America reported looking after virtual reality; many philosophers and scientists explained that there are 20 to 50 percent chances of living in a computer simulation. Somewhere it makes sense in a boring way that we all are trapped inside a computer. You may argue and say that those tech billionaires who have lived their lives surrounded by computer programs and codings might have led them to consider everything in the world as a digitally artificial thing. However, it has always been persistently feeling that it may not be real, what we used to dream about the cosmos and whispering devils, which is now explained through old boring computers. That piece of clumsy hardware that waits hunting every morning on your desk to code with excellent details of your life.
Descartes, with his misleading demons, Kabbalist mysticism, and Zhuangzi in his dream of the butterfly, have raised questions about the reality of their sense perceptions. However, it is not a private, egotistical delusion. In fact, if the entire Universe is Simulation Creationism, then the reality is that all of us are trapped in prison.
The real ancestors of these simulations are the Gnostics, a following of early Christian who trusted that the creation of the physical Universe is by Samael, Ialdaboath, or Demiurge. A snake sometimes considers it with a lion’s head by such a blind god who constructs his unreal world in the real creator’s imperfect simulation. In other words, we can say that this world is actually a mirror or a kind of an image of some software.
Early Christians of Satanism accused Gnostics several times. There are possibilities that they may have had points doing so—many associated the petty, jealous, passionate God of the ancient evidence with the Demiurge. At the same time, sects like the Ophites respected the serpent in h Eden Garden as the first to recommend knowledge of humankind and releasing them from their first prison. And there is something like a Demon who persists techno-Gnostics of San Francisco. They might have determined that a compelling creation creates our Cosmos because it is conscious. And now they are preparing to get into heaven and begin a war with their God. And their belief is omnicidal similar to Goethe’s Mephistopheles. Everything that is existing would surely perish.
Let’s twist a bit in this formula; everything appears existing in this Universe must be demolished. It seems something profane in this intention. However, the foundation of this is very dizzy ideas. This idea helps us to observe the impact on Simulation Creationism that is better known that the Nag Hammadi codices: there is a movie released in 1999 named “The Matrix,” here it is shown how a group of heroic freedom-fighters struggle to wake humanity out from a fictional computer-generated universe and take them back to the real-world. There are many things to know about the ancient traditions and some newer ones in this film. There is a scene in the movie where Neo tries to hide his cash in a hollowed-out duplicate Simulacra and Simulation of Jean Baudrillard. The fact is, even the philosopher was not especially pleased and said in an interview that the movie basically misunderstood his project. He told the Matrix is definitely kind of a film about the Matrix that the Matrix would have been capable of producing. There is a world behind the simulation in this movie, which is not so pleasant but a truth. Baudrillard also speaks about completely unreal realities and are only misleading pictures; however, he did not mean that every image we see or observe this reality has clouded our sights or perception of the reality beyond. Today’s picture of the social system is that massive and surrounded that itself it produces a reality. It is only real when it has people thinking that there is something different behind the curtain. Baudrillard used to refer to an overgrown child who loves Disneyland. Baudrillard showed that there is nothing unreal when you leave its gates and come back to America, which is only one colossus Disneyland. That would only be a copy with no original things, even from coast to coast. Something that conceals the truth is not the simulacrum, but it is the reality that hides there is none. Digital and cinematic media rapidly build our experience of reality. The world of theme parks, film stars, supermarkets, and racks designed to look similar to something that is out of an ancient-time grocery. This is a place where we are living. Our Silicon Valley has prepared a massive questionable belief that what would happen if there is no place to break out into?
Baudrillard was not talking about the reality of material but was talking about social reality. But his points have some base. Theorists of the simulation say that it is right. They suggest that hypothetical advanced humankind would have nothing better than creating an advanced realistic reality, including San Bernardino, Stevenage, banal revolutions of the tech industry, and tax returns. If the truth is that whatever was agreed mutually upon, or in Philip K. Dick’s clauses, that when you stop having trust in it, can not go away, would it make any sense to start discussing virtual reality and real ones? As per the statement given by Deleuze, something that is virtual is also a kind of real one. There is a question that arises about the creation of the Universe: why is it created necessarily with software that looks not less than created by a matter? The computer simulation is nothing but only an image for explaining what was once communicated in oneiric or theological terms. They have not meant for this Universe that it was constructed in some kind of machine, which you are reading such words right now. Simulation is actually a sort of process that is individualistic of whatever technological apparatus or divine is used to achieve it. In fact, the main argument is; whatever we observe is only a function of what exists, and that is by some unknown mechanism. However, since Kant, we have been aware that our perception can never give us complete information about the material world. All of these can be said by an imaginable reality.
Apart from Simulation Creationism, many scientists suggest that our Cosmos is nothing but a single black hole. And what we observe is matter being a hologram and appears from a two-dimensional ring of instructions with its event horizon. On the other hand, some mathematical Platonists support the argument by Max Tegmark. He considered the world a set of abstract objects of mathematics, and existing physical objects are primitive epiphenomenon. If the reality of the matter is that they do not exist, then there is no requirement for anything to be embedded anywhere. There are possibilities that we are living in a chain of simulations that are suspended and the emergence that comes back on itself and does not need to touch the ground.
It is the truth that any kind of deception does not blind Elon Musk and his co-religionists. They have a grip over something strange and old-fashioned that somewhere there must be an existing reality. However, they have determined that it is not this one. It does not matter what projects are secretly being prepared in their fairly malicious campuses. It is almost impossible for them to break the bonds of physical reality. Our creators might have focused their mouse over every unreal body and can press the button of delete. The fact for more worrying is that the people who wish to demolish the world have increasingly responsible people.
