The Nature of Reality

I started my research back in 2015. One day I decided to learn everything there is to know about the universe. Everything. From quantum mechanics to black holes. It took me a year to learn everything, but it took me an additional two years to process and confirm everything. Midways through that processing, I came to a shocking conclusion about the nature of reality.

It was not easily made. Before I ever got to it (as mentioned), I studied science in all its forms: nuclear physics, biology, astro physics, quantum mechanics, electro magnetism, evolution, math, geometry, string theory, relativity, chemistry, computing, robotics, consciousness and probably some more.
So it was not some vaguely based conclusion. It was the sum of the parts.
In science there are no certainties, only probabilities. So my conclusion is the most probable answer, not rock solid.

The following mysteries can point to my conclusion. They can also point in other directions, but my conclusion is the only answer they have in common:

- Everything is electric. Everything is energy. Everything is informaton.
- The collapse of the wave function (a.k.a. "The observer effect" of quantum mechanics)
- Non-locality (a.k.a. "Spooky action at a distance")
- The speed of light. What stops it?
- The physical constant. Either it was set, or there must be many universes.
- The Fibonacci sequence / The golden ratio in nature.
- The holographic principle.
- Graphical error correcting codes in string theory equations (Shannon code).
- Mathematics favors a zeroverse.

All this, and probably more, left me with very little doubt, that our reality/universe is most probably virtual.

We are living in a very advanced computer.


Allow me to quote some of the pioneers of modern science:

"The atoms or elementary particles themselves are not real; they form a world of potentialities or possibilities rather than one of things or facts."
- Werner Heisenberg (apprentice of Niels Bohr)

"Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real."
- Niels Bohr (the father of quantum mechanics)

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."
- Albert Einstein

"Hence it is clear that the space of physics is not, in the last analysis, anything given in nature or independent of human thought."
- Albert Einstein

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
- Arthur C. Clarke (author)

"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."
- Max Planck (father of nuclear physics)

The last one is about the aversion, scepticism and rejection that most physicists have towards the simulation hypothesis. They hate it, because it's counter intuitive and anti physicalistic. They cannot accept that matter is really just information.

 

Fair Wind Films made an excellent video about it: The Simulation Hypothesis


A note at the end:

I do not support the word "simulation". It indicates that something is being imitated. There is no evidence that says we are like "them" at all. I much more prefer the word "virtual".

Nice video, but the observer effect is misrepresented. In the double slit experiments we are looking at measuring devices, not the phenomenon itself.  The measuring device is going to measure what it measures whether we glance at the data or not.

Another point I want to make is, all these nice quotes of famous scientists are contextual to their understanding of physics, and not necessarily can they be interpreted as conformation of the video's perspective.

Amazing that it only took you a year to learn everything about the universe. 

You should probably contact CERN, Max Planck Institute, NASA,  etc and let them know that you've gone ahead and figured it all out for them.

I just feel bad for all the physicists, astronomers, and cosmologists whose careers you have effectively ended.

Maybe upgrade. I think my reality is still using windows 98.

I think the most shocking claim is the OP learned everything in a year.

Its garbage. 

OP makes a ton of wrong assumptions to start with.
