Programmed Reality

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

Programmed Reality

Show Archive
Date: Saturday - February 2, 2008
Host: Ian Punnett
Guests: Jim Elvidge, Gregg McBride

Electrical engineer and scientific truth seeker Jim Elvidge discussed evidence that shows we could be living in a programmed reality, in which "everything [we] perceive is under program control or is generated by some computational mechanism."

According to Elvidge, computer-generated realism will be indistinguishable from our reality within the next few decades. The consistency of Moore's Law coupled with a bevy of up-and-coming technologies, including molecular assemblers and utility fog (swarms of nanobots that can take the shape of virtually anything), make programmed reality feasible, he explained.

Citing a study involving monkeys, Elvidge pointed out that it is currently possible to read sensory signals and determine what someone is experiencing. We may soon be able to generate sensory experiences, as well as write and erase memories, he said. Elvidge also described the process of how a programmed reality could work (see Elvidge Diagrams).

Humans may already be living in a programmed reality, Elvidge hypothesized. As evidence, he spoke about the flexi-laws of physics, various aspects of quantum mechanics, and the finely-tuned nature of the universe. Elvidge suggested the architect may be extraterrestrial, an advanced artificial intelligence, or future humans.

Elvidge said coincidences could be another clue that we reside within a programmed reality. He shared the amazing story of Laura Buxton, age ten, who released a balloon that landed 140 miles away in the backyard of another girl named Laura Buxton, also age ten.

Weight Loss Story

In the first hour, Gregg McBride (video), author of Just Stop Eating So Much!, shared the story of how he lost over 250 pounds by simply reducing his food intake and exercising.
