Simulated reality
Simulated reality is the hypothesis that reality could be simulated—for example by computer simulation—to a degree indistinguishable from "true" reality. It could contain conscious minds which may or ...

Quantum "Weeping Angel" Effect Freezes Atoms In Place
The paradox of Schroedinger’s Cat famously demonstrates that a quantum cat sealed in a box is both alive and dead at the same time until we look inside, at which point it becomes one or the other. Suc...
Direct measurements of the wave nature of matter
New experimental techniques map out wave properties only known previously from theory.

10 Reasons Our Universe Might Actually Be Virtual Reality
Physical realism is the view that the physical world we see is real and exists by itself, alone. Most people think this is self-evident, but physical realism has been struggling with the facts of phys...
Reality Doesn’t Exist Until We Measure It, Quantum Experiment Confirms
Australian scientists have recreated a famous experiment and confirmed quantum physics's bizarre predictions about the nature of reality, by proving that reality doesn't actually exist until we measur...
Elon Musk Estimates Chance That We’re NOT Living in a Computer Simulation — and It’s Really, Really Small
Elon Musk, the well-known entrepreneur behind Tesla and SpaceX, believes there's a "one-in-billions" chance humanity is not living in a computer simulation. Speaking at tech publication Recode's annu...
Ray Kurzweil: Get ready for hybrid thinking
Two hundred million years ago, our mammal ancestors developed a new brain feature: the neocortex. This stamp-sized piece of tissue (wrapped around a brain th...
The case for black holes being nothing but holograms just got even stronger
If anything can sum up just how little we truly know about the Universe, it’s black holes. We can’t see them because not even light can escape their gravitational pull, we have no idea what they’re ma...
Why Elon Musk says we're living in a simulation
You may like playing The Sims, but Elon Musk says you are the Sim.
Our Simulated Universe Is Just One Piece of a Matryoshka Doll of Annihilation
Perhaps a posthuman civilization running simulations self-destructs, or a lab assistant accidentally spills coffee on computer hardware. Simulations can collapse.

Mind-Controlled Prosthetic Arm Moves Individual ‘Fingers’
Physicians and biomedical engineers from Johns Hopkins report what they believe is the first successful effort to wiggle fingers individually and independently of each other using a mind-controlled ar...
The Army Wants To Put This In Your Brain
The U.S. military wants to build a brain modem that allows you to control objects by willpower. How realistic is it?
Brain-computer interface
A brain–computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a mind-machine interface (MMI), direct neural interface (DNI), synthetic telepathy interface (STI) or brain–machine interface (BMI), is a direct comm...

In philosophy, the brain in a vat (alternately known as brain in a jar) is an element used in a variety of thought experiments intended to draw out certain features of our ideas of knowledge, reality,...
Artificial consciousness
Artificial consciousness (AC), also known as machine consciousness (MC) or synthetic consciousness (Gamez 2008; Reggia 2013), is a field related to artificial intelligence and cognitive robotics whose...
Simulation hypothesis
The simulation hypothesis contends that reality is in fact a simulation (most likely a computer simulation), of which we, the simulants are totally unaware. Some versions rely on the development of si...
Mathematical universe hypothesis
In physics and cosmology, the mathematical universe hypothesis (MUH), also known as the Ultimate Ensemble, is a speculative "theory of everything" (TOE) proposed by the cosmologist Max Tegmark.

Digital physics
In physics and cosmology, digital physics is a collection of theoretical perspectives based on the premise that the universe is, at heart, describable by information, and is therefore computable. Ther...

Computationalism
In philosophy, a computational theory of mind names a view that the human mind or the human brain (or both) is an information processing system and that thinking is a form of computing. The theory was...
Dream argument
The dream argument is the postulation that the act of dreaming provides preliminary evidence that the senses we trust to distinguish reality from illusion should not be fully trusted, and therefore an...
