Danger of our being a simulation
If such a situation were to apply to humans on earth, we could detect it by obtaining subatomic data and
finding that such particles did not act in an analog manner but were instead under the laws of a digital
format. Such a digital format is called Quantum Mechanics.

What if our reality were a computer simulation: Edeline D'Souza at TEDxYouth@Winchester
Published on Feb 6, 2013
What if our reality were a computer simulation? Once we discover that, can we hack into the programme of
existence? Can we stop ourselves from being shut down? Edeline discusses the possibility of our reality
being nothing more than coded information.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people
together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to
spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded
TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for
the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and
1. Images are made of pixels. Once you get to the level of the pixel, you gain nothing more by going further.
Once you get to a Planck's length, further focusing doesn't yield any more information.
2. Uncertainty principle. Things are placed in an uncertain manner and are not known to be at a definite
location until measured.
3. Very cold temperatures yield no motion.
4. We exist as information. Matter and energy are secondary manifestations of the real thing, which is
The result is that we can be certain that we are living in a computer simulation.
