Hollywood Auctioning Movie Props

Other items include Harrison Ford’s revolver in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Legolas’ bow from The Lord of the Rings  trilogy, and Mr. Spock’s uniform from the Star Trek TV show.

Enjoy the sale of everything you’ve ever loved here.

It’s out, here it is:

 

Are We In The Matrix?

Researchers from the University of Washington believe that, while they can’t themselves create a simulation of the universe, they can certainly test to see if we’re living in one.

Okay, I just read this paragraph from the UW’s site:

The supercomputers performing lattice quantum chromodynamics calculations essentially divide space-time into a four-dimensional grid. That allows researchers to examine what is called the strong force, one of the four fundamental forces of nature and the one that binds subatomic particles called quarks and gluons together into neutrons and protons at the core of atoms.

I… don’t understand any of those words. Like, at all.

Anyway, this piece was interesting:

If such a concept turned out to be reality, it would raise other possibilities as well. For example, Davoudi suggests that if our universe is a simulation, then those running it could be running other simulations as well, essentially creating other universes parallel to our own.

Huh.

Question: Are we in the Matrix? Of course, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.
