The Matrix

+ - Can you prove we are not in The Matrix?

Submitted by
Herby Sagues
Herby Sagues writes "The theories that claim that we are not living in the real world but we live in a simulated world run on computers instead, in which we are either part of the simulation (like in "13th floor") or just plugged to it (like in The Matrix) are not taken seriously by most, but have not be disproven either. Can you propose an experiment that would prove (or disprove) we run in the real world? Playing with intractable problems, discrete time or other techniques might yield results, though you must consider the possibility of nontraditional (i.e. not temporal/spatial) simulations."

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
