We all know by experience of life that intellectuals and the so-called powerful people believe to be prepared to understand this world. Physicists, and an ideological current of thought in politics and theoretical physics, even proclaim the possibility of a “theory of everything”… Do they have perfect relationships with the opposite sex, do they maintain well-balanced relationships with their sons and daughters?… Well, I doubt a lot. But they claim to be possible to understand this world. Incidentally, scientists that show signs to be working on a theory of everything, they were born in imperial or ex-imperial countries. This is also significant.

So, when Elon Musk talks about his belief that Earth is not a real planet, and that probably we all live in a computer simulation, we must ask ourselves if a lot of people are being contaminated by computers, playing too much computer games, looking to the world by means of the computer screen, instead by living and experimenting the beauty and infinite richness nature may show to us…if we look directly to nature through our eyes…

It seems, according to venture capitalist Sam Altman, that there are two tech billionaires “secretly” working on a demonstration that we are all living in a simulation. Most probably they will use computers and, therefore, they will wok on virtual reality, and therefore they will find what they want… Of course, you also can take some LSD or heroine and find that “you” are living in a different magic world, somehow in a simulation.

It seems that this idea, that we are living in a simulation, dates back to the 17th-century René Descartes, the philosopher that said “cogito, ergo sum” – I think, therefore I exist. He was wrong, as we know today. Because the majority of people think, and think wrongly about their lives and the world, not really knowing what they think to know, enclosed in their ego, and suffering, making huge mistakes, and dying early because of them, or living in survival mode. They are not existing, not living. To live, to exist, needs knowledge. We may say, “I know, therefore, I exist”…
