Life Is A Simulation Prison! – Death, Parallel Universes, Spacetime & Consciousness 

Ever wondered if we’re living in a simulation? Or questioned the true potential of AI and its consciousness? In today’s episode of Impact Theory, Donald Hoffman, a cognitive scientist and consciousness expert, is here to challenge your understanding of reality and consciousness. Hoffman’s proposed theory of consciousness flips your everyday assumptions about what reality is on their head, arguing that our perceptions of what we experience in the physical world aren’t as real as you’d like to think. Do you think it’s possible life is a simulation and we’re in some version of a virtual reality headset? The metaphor of the virtual headset explains why our experiences are limited and there are things like freewill that we never truly experience. And if that’s not heavy enough for you, Hoffman brings mathematical equations into the picture to explain that all consciousness is mathematically structured.
