Popular Science asked theoretical physicist Brian Greene what he thought about it, and Greene responded that there's no evidence. If we were to experience some kind of reality-altering glitch, like those frequently seen in the Matrix movies, then there might be a case to make, but we've seen none of that. On the navel-gazing side, Vice asked a couple of philosophers, who concluded that the premise itself is nonsense. A simulation that is indistinguishable from reality is reality, or else you could, you know, distinguish it. There's literally no difference between living in reality and living in a 100-percent perfect reproduction of reality, so why bother with it?
Any way you classify the theory -- philosophically or scientifically -- it all boils down to the same thing: stoner-grade mental masturbation.
Which is tons of fun, and we highly recommend it. But maybe don't publish articles about it on your news site. Leave that to us.
