"The Simulation Hypothesis": Maybe This IS A Computer Game


Life may be tough some days, but at least we're not plugged into a computer, like in "The Matrix" movies.  We're not, right? 

Rizwan Virk wants you to consider the possibility.  He is the author of The Simulation Hypothesis, a book on the belief that the world we perceive is not the real one. 

The belief predates computers; even Plato wrote about the shadows of the "real world" that we see in our world.  Set your pre-conceived notions aside as we explore the territory with the author.
