Essays about The Matrix
Friday, January 04, 2008
People who've watched TheMatrix have at one time or other wondered, what if it were real? ...And then quickly dismiss the thought as too improbable you might as well believe you're really a flying superhero and this life is just a dream.

But beyond the concept being a mere interesting thought experiment, and because far too many researches have been more bizarre, someone's finally taking the concept seriously, and his name is Brian Whitworth. Says he:
"Logically the world could be an information simulation running on a three-dimensional space-time screen. Indeed, if the essence of the universe is information, matter, charge, energy and movement could be aspects of information, and the many conservation laws could be a single law of information conservation. If the universe were a virtual reality, its creation at the big bang would no longer be paradoxical, as every virtual system must be booted up."
