Okay, there’s just a link for today, it’s somewhat old but it’s red and it could take you out of here. ;) Or provide an entertaining read at least, for those of some philosophical inclination. Here’s what it is about (it’s a quote, yes.) Follow the source link to get more on the topic.
ABSTRACT. This paper argues that at least one of the following propositions is true: (1) the human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a “posthuman” stage; (2) any posthuman civilization is extremely unlikely to run a significant number of simulations of their evolutionary history (or variations thereof); (3) we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation. It follows that the belief that there is a significant chance that we will one day become posthumans who run ancestor-simulations is false, unless we are currently living in a simulation. A number of other consequences of this result are also discussed.
