Philosophy at its best. Matrix: spot on?

In summary: at least one of the following arguments must be true.

  • Almost all civilisations at our level of development become extinct before becoming technologically mature.
  • The fraction of technologically mature civilisations that are interested in creating ancestor simulations is almost zero.
  • You are almost certainly living in a computer simulation.

Now that’s a satisfying thing to get your teeth into: creator and all.
