NASA Scientist Says We May Be Living In A Matrix-Like Digital Imprisonment Designed By Aliens (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



In his paper, British philosopher Nick Bostrom suggested a race of far-evolved descendants could be behind our digital imprisonment.

The futuristic beings – human or otherwise – could be using virtual reality to simulate a time in the past or recreate how their remote ancestors lived.

We are living in a simulated reality. Every relationship, every sentiment, every memory could have been generated by banks of supercomputers. In other words, we are the product of a highly-advanced computer code.

It seems unlikely and it could be the script for a science fiction film but NASA thinks Dr Bostrom might be right.

According to Express, Rich Terrile, director of the Centre for Evolutionary Computation and Automated Design at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, has spoken out about the digital simulation.

In quantum mechanics, particles do not have a definite state unless they’re being observed. One explanation is that we’re living within a simulation, seeing what we need to see when we need to see it.

Even if we are in a simulation or many orders of magnitude down in levels of simulation, somewhere along the line something escaped the primordial ooze to become us and to result in simulations that made us.

“Right now the fastest NASA supercomputers are cranking away at about double the speed of the human brain,” the NASA scientist told Vice.

“If you make a simple calculation using Moore’s Law (which roughly claims computers double in power every two years), you’ll find that these supercomputers, inside of a decade, will have the ability to compute an entire human lifetime of 80 years – including every thought ever conceived during that lifetime – in the span of a month.”

If we follow Dr. Bostrom’s idea that our Universe is just a simulation, created by a supermind and generated by computer code solves a number of inconsistencies and mysteries about the cosmos we may ask ourselves who are outside the simulation, where are they and why don’t we see them?

The universe is unbelievable big – trillions of stars and even more planets, so there just has to be life out there, right? But where is it?

According to physicist Enrico Fermi (The Fermi Paradox):

The apparent size and age of the universe suggest that many technologically advanced extraterrestrial civilizations ought to exist. However, this hypothesis seems inconsistent with the lack of observational evidence to support it.

The Sun is a typical star, and relatively young. There are billions of stars in the galaxy that are billions of years older.

With high probability, some of these stars will have Earth-like planets. Assuming the Earth is typical, some of these planets may develop intelligent life.

Some of these civilizations may develop interstellar travel, a technology Earth is investigating even now.

Even at the slow pace of currently envisioned interstellar travel, the galaxy can be completely colonized in a few tens of millions of years.

According to his line of thinking, the Earth should already have been colonized, or at least visited. But Fermi saw no convincing evidence of this, nor of signs of intelligence elsewhere in our galaxy or elsewhere in the observable universe.

Remains the question, we are alone in the universe or we are the product of a supermind?

If we follow Enrico Fermi’s explanation, it could simply be that Earth and mankind truly is the centre of the universe but according to Nick Bostrom we are the product of a highly-advanced computer code and we may be living in a Matrix-like digital imprisonment designed by Aliens.

      Anyone beLIEving anything NASA is telling them is the truth has already been Lied too, from a round balled Earth spinning like a top and hurdling through space that never seems to hit anything to a “Red” Planet they say is 95 million miles away to Satellites in Space to they’re is no such thing as Chemtrails that are Bioengineering all Living Life on this Planet ..Creating now all Artificial Life

      What is the Bible talking about Fallen Angels/Watchers and how can there be 2 different Blood Types an Rh Negative and an Rh Positive, that the Rh Negative is called a Mutation and not an “Invasion” with no explanation as to why an Rh Positive Women Aborts Naturally a Rh Negative Fetus while in the Womb.

      Hitler A-, Mao O-, McCain O-, Obama AB-, Eisenhower O-, Reagan B-, Bush A-, Clinton AB-, Carter AB-, Nixon O- , Would Guess all the Presidents have been an Rh Negative Blood Type from the Start including the Runner-ups, Worldwide No Different China, Russia, India, Brazil, etc.

      The Fall of the Angels/Watchers was the Fall of the Human Being..the Human Genome Project should tell anyone This

      The Original Human Beings Might have had a Single Brain instead of a Split Brain with the Left side called the Reptilian Side now, a Single Strained DNA, that all Humans Beings were Hermaphrodites and an AB+ Blood Type, while this is just a Theory of Mine its as good as Darwin’s Theory of Evolution without a Missing Link or Einstein’s Theory of Relativity while leaving the Aether out of his Theory

    A higher being, that created us in their own likeness?

  • TSM

    S. James Gates Jr confirmed Bostrom’s theory by finding the “code” did he not???

  • sarah

    Does anyone still believe much of what comes out of the government agencies minions mouth anymore?

  • rochrealtor

    I used to have respect for NASA. Their aliens connection and lack of creator are stunning. keep looking for your aliens. They’re not mentioned in Genesis and no one has proved it incorrect.

    • Big dog.../small fish...

      Too bad you’re so narrow minded. The Bible’s a FAIRY TALE written to subdue and install fear in the UNEDUCATED…

      • Room With a View

        Oh, and NASA isn’t a fairytale as well, designed to deceive the ignorant and hold them captive, much the same as religion has done over the centuries. Same Same, but different. At least the Bible acknowledges from the outset that we were made by an intelligence far greater than we could ever comprehend. NASA after all their God denying, are only just coming around to realising that GOD IS REAL, and if he is an ‘alien’ and returning to the planet he created, then we are all pretty much doomed. He is gonna be soon pissed with what we have done while he has been away.

    • Johnny

      Who’s to say that the giants and Nephilim mentioned in Genesis weren’t aliens?

  • Poe56

    Ahhh, I just had to sign in to comment on this one. Want to find out the truth that is, believe it or not, already in your own little mind but has been blocked off….. Well, that Organization which most of the planet seems to black off..especially Psychs and the Gov….has the only answer to this ordeal…and NASA is not far from the truth…not far at all.

      Yeah thats sure is one screwed up mind and David Wilcock walks a knife edge between making money and being locked up in a nut house.

      What has he been seeing in his head this week !

  • Dustdevil

    NASA is about 1/4 correct on this. The first error they are making, of course, is to ASSUME that what they have witnessed in space is actually real and not an advanced 3D holograph meant to depict things that aren’t actually there. Like Hollywood, a little truth mixed with a lot of fantasy projected in 3D holographics would easily lead you to assumptions, such as how big the universe is, how fast light is, how black holes operate, and so much more.

    If NASA could go out 100 light years, I hate to tell them, but the universe looks a LOT DIFFERENT than the 3D movie they are watching from near-earth-locations.

  • The Watcher

    We could be in the body of an entity, that entity within the body of another entity, and so on.

    • VirusGuard

      Like a game running inside a games engine and the game engine being inside a operating system that runs on many virtual CPU’s

      You could be right but the relationship is not one to one because it would be like only have one core in the processor or one player in the game but thats not to say all 7bn of us even exsist or are inside the same entity.

      I think “We” are closer to the core O/S but who knows unless you take a guess about when we dream and say we are jumping into another virtual reality on the same games engine where the laws of physics have been changed.

    Indeed we do live in some type of computer simulation and its becomeing obvious when our DNA is computer code and computer can even read the brain.

    Evoloution is also true to some degree and advance computer programs use evoloution to find the best path for solving problems.

    You, Me , Everybody is part of the machine, we are the machine in an early stage of developement as the machine is programmed to build it’s own logic and circuits based on evoloution, tests and expriements.

    Think of Physics as being the CPU’s instruction set and each one of us as being a process thread in the machine that has been programmed to evolove to produce a better IQ (Faster processing, useful results) to become more useful as cogs in the machine.

    We ourselves are becoming machines in the process and it won’t take long before computer games come with a USB7 that plugs in to the back of your head and the masses will soak it up as they play close to life “Men of war” games with full feedback almost like you get in a dream.

    Without computers us humans could not evolve at any rate and its the same for the “things” that built the machine we are in so it becomes a case of Man building gods in his own image which might upset a few people here but the logic is perfect.

    You cannot escape no more than Pack-Man can escape his ZX-Spectrum and you should not try hacking the system like a virus would because you will be removed, erased from memory and the database.

    Sorry it does not end in some type of alice and wonderland story where everyone lives happy ever after.

  • LifeIs

    So why does NASA imprison us in NASA hoaxes.

  • Don't be hating!

    How can you fight what you cannot see?

    Solution: Turn to CHRIST!
