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
