2019 marks the 20th anniversary of what is arguably one of the best Science fiction movies ever made – The Matrix. It popularized an ancient idea that the world we live in may not be real. In other words, our world is just an illusion, a simulation — a video game.

So, Are we really living in a video game?
Game industry veteran Rizwan (Riz) Virk believes this could be true.

Rizwan (“Riz”) Virk is a successful entrepreneur, angel investor, bestselling author, video game industry pioneer, and indie film producer. Virk currently runs Play Labs @ MIT ( a startup accelerator for playful technologies held on campus at the MIT Game Lab and Bayview Labs (
Virk’s books include: Startup Myths and Models: Secrets They Don’t Teach You at Stanford Business School, from Columbia University Press (2020), Zen Entrepreneurship: Walking the Path of the Career Warrior (2013), and Treasure Hunt: Follow Your Inner Clues to Find True Success (2017).

Virk’s video games have been played by millions, including Tap Fish, and games based on TV shows like Penny Dreadful and Grimm. Virk has been an investor in many video game companies, including Telltale Games (creator of narrative games based on The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones), Disruptor Beam (creator of Star Trek: Timelines game), Pocket Gems, Tapjoy,, and Discord.

    It sure sounds better than evolution, which complexity is beyond the comprehension of human thinking.

    This is all very lighthearted musings about the possibility of our living in a virtual world, by Virk, the questions from the audience , and in the comments section. But in all sincerity, don't take it too lightly, if you're even considering giving any of this stuff any credence. As one who has considered it seriously, I'll warn you now that it can really mess with your mind, if you do happen to start believing it. Remember the proverb about curiosity and the cat. If everything is fake, you might think you have a right to know. But the question is would you be able to go on living, if you were to discover that it is fake. If you are not in top shape mentally, and you don't think you could handle the strain of having your whole existence questioned, then I'd stay far away from any serious conversation on this topic. For those whose curiosity is stronger than their fear of death, I would invite you to check out Project Stairway to Heaven on my youtube channel.

    Just more of the same vapid state that we’re currently in unless this can expand our capacity to experience a deeper, more meaningful beauty, within and without.

    Maya is illusions
    Ullus banao sabko
    What Vedas saying already that this whole universe Brahamanda is making with Maya illusions
    So scientists know at now
    Brahamanda nikaya nirmit Maya
    Universal system are made with illusions
    Dimensions cutting dimension
    Directions cut direction
    Diamond cutting diamonds
    doing cutting beings
    Jeeva Maya brahma
    Jeeva is part of brahma but spaces by maya is so vast and thin that it's see through it at infinity banding but actually its not banding and jerva is already brahama
    Aham bramsmi
    And so on

    I love the bit about more simulated beings than based reality ones. And the odds are that we are simulated.

  10. S. Gillespie Posted on July 15, 2020 at 8:56 am

    The world is literally on fire and some of the greatest minds are using them to determine whether or not we're in a simulation! Incredible.
    Apparently, like filthy rich people you can't control your thirst for more (knowledge)…all the while your experiments and super computers are sucking the life force out of the planet.
    And just like filthy rich people you're driven to compete with and hopefully beat the other guys…all the while people are dying in the millions.
    Once you're caught in the loop you respond, unwittingly to say, "There are 7+ billion people…what's a few million…they were, no doubt, living miserable lives. Now their pains are gone…besides we're all gonna die anyway. "
    The hubris-ness is painful to watch as we all glide over the side of a cliff…as the cleverest minds continue to calculate away…only to turn and see our species final second of existence.

    I’ve thought these things since I was a kid. He laid out the case well. I would have liked hearing his thoughts on solipcism. He seems to reject it to the point of not bothering to mention it. This discussion isn’t complete without acknowledging it’s a real possibility… albeit perhaps unhealthy.

  12. Shreya Arya Posted on July 15, 2020 at 8:56 am

    What if death is another level of the game? What if death is how other's are able to get to the next world of the simulation? Or to escape the simulation? Maybe that's why we are taught to be scared of death, because that's the only way we can get out of this fake reality.

    great talk and book! but there are many questions that pop up as soon as you consider this hypothesis. for instance, conciousness, is it also a rendered simulation in its own nature? if conciousness emerges from bits and a collection of information with a high probability wave, then whatever we refer to as conciousness is the observed probability. the non observed probabilities become what we call subconscious and since the subconscious is way greater than observed conscious we can say that our consciousness is not fully observable. our observed conciousness is based on our preexisting knowledge through learning the observable "reality" which is biased and not whole.

    I can't find any information, none, zilch about this apparent spoon bending done at the Mariott in Santa Clara. I also can't find any reference of a 'Jack Hogg' from Stanford Research Institute. I have always been under the impression spoon bending is a magic trick not some display of mental fortitude over this reality.

    Has anyone got any information on this because it seems very odd there is absolutely nothing about this online.

    if this is a simulation whoever is running it has failed us

    Holographic Universe & description of heaven.


    Thanks for sharing this very interesting information with me. It certainly makes sense to me. The Anthropic principle alone should be enough for skeptical scientists to understand that the laws of physics and mathematics are the laws of God's own Mind. Kevin Williams

    James Gates, Ph.D., a theoretical physicist at the Univ. of Maryland said: “If the simulation hypothesis is valid, then we open the door to eternal life and resurrection and things that formally have been discussed in the realm of religion.

    Our Creator created linear space-time which is essentially controlled electrical energy in the form of light that has existed eternally. Checkout on YouTube: A fractal universe.

    Time and space must exist before a matter can be created, and only an animate entity can conceive of space-time; this prerequisite must be a stabilized and uniform condition before a matter can form, thus, monotheism is a Truth. A stable space-time and the Universal Laws of Physics did not happen by chance.

    On Jan. 17, 2000 at 2 pm, while crossing a river bridge in Burswood (Australia) on my bicycle, I observed a velvet-textured beige pearl covering the sun. Within the entity, there were containers in the shape of elongated, seven-pointed Koch snowflake fractal crystals immersed in a white misty light traveling in a ten o'clock direction. I later deduced that the light flashes on the inner space of the crystals were of a binary language conversion pertaining to the senses of all mortals, that is, a holographic universe.

    Nicola Tesla believed that crystals were living entities ….writing: “In a crystal, we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.”

    If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration" -Nikola Tesla.

    Scientists decided that to prove that reality was not, in fact, simply an illusion, they had to discover the “point particle”, and this would be accomplished with innovations like the Large Hadron Collider.

    By discovering the "Point Particle" scientist were able to prove that reality was, in fact, an illusion. Through the data, they received from The Hadron Collider (LHC) which was built to smash particles together then monitor the outcome. By doing this, scientists were able to make some incredible discoveries. According to research conducted through the particle accelerator, they could see that the physical world is not as physical as we think it to be. Reality is, in fact, an illusion. We are only surrounded by energy.

    Natalie Porter 16 April 2018 In Life, Metaphysics

    "The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence."

    ~Nikola Tesla


    What Heaven looks like, which I witnessed in the sky above the banks of the Swan River, Perth, at dawn on 31 July 1998.

    In the garden, flowers and grass were clearly visible, they pulsed in the surrounding low light, infused by an inner light. Their colours were magnificent but totally new to me with a spectrum much broader than that on Earth. (Mandelbrot Fractal Zoom)


    Universal Truths

    Preserve and protect all Life, and maintain the universal environment and peace.

    Every being has the right to freedom within the legal structure, but they should respect the natural rights of all life forms.

    Aspire to the gains that love, integrity, compassion, humility, moderation, civility and tolerance will bring.

    Promote and provide for justice, fairness, equality, rationalism as well as laws that sustain peace and harmony.

    Exalt and appreciate the Creator’s love and creation.

    First touchable hologram.

    One hypothesis i would like to make is that everybody is living in their own universe. The universe you see around you , would therefore be your own universe where you are a PC and everyone around you is a NPC. So your goal in life, is to cross over your obstacles in your life, that you find in your universe. This also means that from time to time, one or the other NPCs in your universe will interact with you to help you cross over certain obstacles. It is a given that the sentient being or beings outside of the simulation have the power to influence your universe, but not make decisions for you , because that would change the rules by which the universe exists as your universe, where you are its center and authority, which is the basis of free will.
