AREA 52 #039: “Keeping It Real”

What if Morpheus from the Matrix was right? What if everything around us, everything we knew, was all a giant and complex simulation run by our more advanced, post-human descendants?

Sounds crazy, right?

Well, there are some really smart people out there that actually believe this could be true, and there seems to be some arguments that actually back this theory up. From some pretty sound logic to actual computer code that seems to be written in the fabric of space, join us this week as we, along with our special guest, our producer Sascha Blume, as we discuss why the idea of all of us living inside a simulation really isn’t that crazy.

Buckle up, kids, it’s about to get deep.

“In 1692, a small village in Massachusetts called Salem became the site of the most famous witch trials in American history and lead to the deaths of 20 people, but was there any actual witchcraft involved or was it all just an extreme case of mass hysteria brought on by impressionable, attention starved children?
