According to super entrepreneur founder of Tesla Motors and Space X, Elon Musk, there is a very small chance that we are NOT living in a simulation controlled by an advanced alien species.
“The strongest argument for us probably being in a simulation I think is the following; 40 years ago we had Pong – two rectangles and a dot. That’s where we were. Now 40 years later we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. And soon we’ll have virtual reality, we’ll have augmented reality. If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality, just indistinguishable.”
He went onto explain that;
“it would seem to follow that the odds that we’re in ‘base reality’ is one in billions”
When pressed for a clearer answer on whether or not we are stuck in some type of a simulation, Musk's answer was “probably”.
