Are we living within a huge computer simulation? Does it work like a video game that can be replayed, over and over again, to attain a better conclusion? Is that replay effect giving many of us deja vu? In The Simulated Multiverse, a MIT computer scientist tries to untangle the truth from the fiction.
Okay, first of all, this is not just pop science. It helps to be well-educated or just plain smart to follow along on the wild ride down the possibility slide contained within this book. Does the author scientifically prove anything? No. But he does present some very intriguing possibilities that aren’t disproven by known facts.
I find science, especially new theories, fascinating. The Simulated Multiverse is an eye-opener on multiple levels. If you liked A Glitch in the Matrix, or The Matrix itself, this book goes even deeper into those same rabbit holes.
This book would also be great for science fiction writers who want to add some unusual plot points or settings to their novels. For me, The Simulated Multiverse is easily worth 5 stars and is a favorite!
