    Soon we'll be the simulation lords for another simulation that we create and then we'll be the grandfather simulation lords for the simulation that we created when they create simulation lords.

    And son on

    Just checked out /r/Science to see what their take was on this article, not many comments yet.
    Somebody posted this link though. It goes more in depth on how some physicists obtained the theory.

    After reading this article, I just got a little sadder inside... Nobody wants to be told that the universe is just a simulation.

    Cool
    So according to this theory, would our simulators have control over some aspects of the universe, or is everything completely random?

    My general philosophy is Absurdism, a philosophical school of thought stating that the efforts of humanity to find inherent meaning will ultimately fail (and hence are absurd) because the sheer amount of information as well as the vast realm of the unknown make certainty impossible. I am also a Humanist, I find that humanistic beliefs make the world slightly less absurd. (Humanism is a body of philosophies and ethical perspectives that emphasize the value of human beings, individually and collectively, and generally place more importance on rational thought than on strict faith or adherence to principle.)
