This is an excellent discussion from a surprisingly diverse group of scientists about the possibility the Universe is a simulation. There are some interesting possible implications if we are. It’s probable we are, but based on our current observations unlikely.
Being a software developer myself, I found the most interesting part of the discussion the discovery of natural error correction codes in biological systems. This does not mean we are a simulation, but it does make a stronger case for a design to our biological systems possibly.
I like to wonder if I am real once a day. It keeps me sane and centered. The Universe is an amazing place.
