Seemingly the answer to this question seems very simple; it is apparently clear that we live with free will. Leading scientists, philosophers, physicists, have dealt with this question for years without unequivocal conclusions.

  • The simulation theory will fall if you can locate an event, nature show, behavior, emotions, natural processes, etc., that do not have a mathematical solution with a workable result! The premise is that all processes in nature can have a distinct mathematical expression. If you search, you will find that it is challenging to shatter this claim! All functions in nature behave in an exemplary and surprising manner with complex mathematics that optimizes resource utilization.

What does it take to prove that we live in a computer simulation?

  • It is impossible to prove that we live in a computer simulation from our system. The question is very similar to the halting problem posed at the time by Alan Turing. The conclusion is that this question has no solution. (Logical limitation)

To prove unequivocally that we live in a simulation, one of two things must happen:

  1. Intelligent aliens will appear on Earth and show us convincing arguments that we live in a simulation.
  2. We will crack the riddle of the universe, and we will be able to find the simulation formulas at a level where we can predict events with probabilities that do not leave a doubt of randomness.

At the moment, neither option looks pretty close. In my opinion, currently, the first option is more reasonable than the second. (Just an intelligent and unscientific guess)

At the theoretical level, is there a computing power strong enough to conduct a simulation of all human beings at once?

  • The answer to the question has to do with the nature of the simulation. Assuming that simulation controls only significant milestones in our lives and not every second and every marginal decision, the answer is "yes" the computing power required is enormous but probably possible theoretically.

The findings cannot unequivocally prove one of the two possibilities but only strengthen the reasonable possibility of the two.

  • Observing flora and fauna from the dawn of creation may illuminate far-reaching philosophical and scientific questions. It turns out that insects and even flowers and plants apply complex mathematical methods of optimizing resources. If you want examples, look for the explanations for why the beehive is made of hexagons. Why flowers are arranged according to the Fibonacci series, etc. (There are many examples)
  • If we prove that a beehive 100 million years ago was actually in the shape of squares (compared to hexagons today), then there is proof that this is indeed an evolutionary event. If we assume we will find 480 million-year-old fossils of flies with eyes arranged in the shape of hexagons, then it is probably not about evolution but about creation itself.

Strange as it may be, the possibility that we live in a very sophisticated computer simulation cannot be verified or ruled out.
