He needs to lay off the DMT.
The earth is supposedly roughly 5B yrs old and we are nowhere close to creating a universe so I call BS on his idea. Any civilizations that have developed probably have remained within their star systems. The distances are just to great to offset the resources required to leave.
“and in that vast period of time he says it’s statistically likely a civilisation has figured out how to make a fully believable simulation”
And it’s equally likely that an omnipotent being created the universe with all its natural rules and corresponds with it continuously.
You can think up this crap all day long and as long as it happened before the observable “beginning of time”, it’s all valid...because it’s all speculation.
Musk needs to have a vacation in the Carribbean and stop toking on the radio.
yes. It has been falsely represented. I watched it and it was just as you described. In fact I’m not even sure he inhaled it was so light and you could tell he had no love for it. Pot to us type A types is a real downer on motivation. And that is a HUGE turn off for driven, ambitious people. Elon spoke to that in the video. But that got no play.
That's acknowledging a deity. God would be the ultimate being that isn't a simulation. Its essence is unknowable to us, even with belief in its existence. (nobody follows my logic, but it makes sense to me <^..^> )
or perhaps the ability to reach other civilizations comes with the inevitability of self-destruction
“Musk’s Matrix-style simulation hypothesis comes from the fact that the Universe has been around 13.8 billion years, and in that vast period of time he says it’s statistically likely a civilisation has figured out how to make a fully believable simulation.”
If we’re in a simulation, then we have no idea how long the actual universe has been around, and no way of determining that, thus we would have no evidence for how statistically likely any of this would actually be...
But not bad optics for a guy who believes he is brilliant and creative enough to offset this stunt by his continued output of new ideas...and then delivers on that.
Consider that Trump said he thought even bad publicity to be good for business. Trump didn’t use much advertising. I don’t believe Musk’s companies use any at all, which is especially unusual for a car company. Now consider who makes their money from advertising and that could explain to some extent why the media hates Trump and Musk so much.
“The earth is supposedly roughly 5B yrs old and we are nowhere close to creating a universe so I call BS on his idea.”
Well, from the time we developed computing a few decades ago to today, we now have quite a few pretty impressive high definition, highly detailed multiplayer simulations going.
There is no confusing those with reality, but if we continue to develop at this pace I doubt it would take millions of years for us to create a simulation that could fool you.
He sounds pretty much like any other pot head Ive ever tried to have a conversation with.
There is no actual universe and the simulation of it isn't really a real simulation either.
It's more like a dream, dood!
But I wondered if Musk really understood how electric cars work:
Like, wow, dude.
If life as we know it is really a sim, then who’s in control?
