Whoa: Physicists testing to see if universe is a computer simulation
Will you take the red pill or the blue pill?
Some physicists and university researchers say it's possible to test the theory that our entire universe exists inside a computer simulation, like in the 1999 film "The Matrix."
In 2003, University of Oxford philosophy professor Nick Bostrom published a paper, "The Simulation Argument," which argued that, "we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation." Now, a team at Cornell University says it has come up with a viable method for testing whether we're all just a series of numbers in some ancient civilization's computer game.
Researchers at the University of Washington agree with the testing method, saying it can be done. A similar proposal was put forth by German physicists in November.

It wouldn't have to be an ancient civilization.

We feel as if we've existed for a long time, but the entire simulation, or game, or climate model...

Might only be seconds old.

If you wish to run simulations, the idea is to find out how some part of it might go, right?

So you'd tend to what them to run much faster than not.
