The picture below absolutely blew my mind. It’s a concept that most of us learn at school in physics but when it is presented in a visual style like this, it seems even more impossible. This is where I start wondering why we can’t walk through walls or…why there’s something when there should be nothing? Or why solid objects appear solid but aren’t really…etc.
Anyway, all these philosophical questions still exist because they are completely unanswerable. I like to think that the matrix probably exists. There’s no way of proving it doesn’t. It would make sense really if everything that we are is in our heads and doesn’t actually manifest itself physically. It would explain why everything is 99.999999% nothing. But how could the world possibly be a simulation? Maybe everything that we are is an illusion created in our minds. Does that even make any sense?
I don’t actually believe that the matrix exists but wouldn’t everything be so convenient if it was? Everything would make much more sense.
I’m glad I’m not a physicist. It would drive me insane, personally, but I have the utmost respect for those that choose that long and arduous path. The road to seeking new knowledge while sitting right on the brink of the unknowable is a challenging life to lead indeed.
