I love conspiracies as much as the next IABer -- I mean I thrive on them. From classics like Area 51 and Bigfoot to the Illuminati, Stonehenge, and the Egyptian pyramids -- I love them all, if only for entertainment purposes.
So it's no surprise that this article that was published today in the New Yorker caught my eye. New York University philosopher professor David Chalmers is convinced we live in a Matrix-like computer simulation. He believes there's a glitch of some sort of in the simulator though, or maybe not a glitch, but possibly someone reckless at the wheel -- a mischievous chaos-loving Loki if you will.
He cites the recent rash of unexpected outcomes such as Trump winning the election, the Patriots coming from behind in the final minutes and winning the Super Bowl, and most recently, Moonlight literally snatching the Oscar from the grasp of La La Land in an unexpected victory.
This is not a new theory -- lots of people have tossed the idea out there -- mostly stoned bros with blogs, and Elon Musk.
Anyhoo, if this is true, that means there must be a way to hack into the system. Let's get on this, IAB -- there has to be one of us smart enough to crack the code.
