Sorgner versus Musk on whether we live in a Computer Simulation

“The Life Cycle is a podcast series dreamt up by Klang Games, conceived as an excuse to procrastinate the development of the studio’s simulation MMO, Seed, a game about human survival and exoplanet settlement”, according to their website. (https://www.thelifecyclepodcast.com/home/#about) In their latest episode of the podcast, they dealt with the question whether we live in a computer simulation and what our chances are that we do actually live in such a simulation. Elon Musk argues that chances are very high that we do not live in bas...

From Transcendental Dopes to Transhumanists: Prolegomena to a Futurist Take on the History and Philosophy of Science by Steve Fuller
