  • (gentle music) (keyboard clacking)

  • - Are we living in a simulation?

  • 100%, and here's how.

  • If you live in a simulation that means we are not human

  • but digital beings living in a vast computer program created

  • by our far future descendants.

  • Computer scientists say the odds that we're living

  • in a simulation are 50 50

  • and we have to trust computer scientists.

  • They're my daddy.

  • Let's say you're certain you live

  • in a non-computer simulated reality.

  • Your routine never follows a set pattern.

  • You never experienced anything odd

  • except when your grandmother visits

  • and you greet her wearing your favorite blue pants.

  • And she says, "Nice gold pants."

  • But when you look down, you only see blue.

  • She tells you, "Yanny, stop acting crazy.

  • "Those pants are gold."

  • You tell her, "Grandma, my name is Laurel."

  • And she says, "I know, of course your name is Yanny."

  • You can't deny what you've just seen and heard.

  • This isn't a silly misunderstanding.

  • It's a break in the code because you live in a permutation.

  • Let's say you never fight with your grandmother

  • over visual and auditory hallucinations,

  • at least from what you can remember.

  • And you have an incredible memory.

  • So when you get invited to a movie night

  • for Kazaam starring Shaq, you suggest watching the

  • far superior movie Shazaam starring Sinbad.

  • But your friends say that's impossible

  • because the Shazaam movie doesn't exist.

  • You freak out.

  • Your friends say, "Don't worry, this isn't a simulation.

  • "You're just suffering from the Mandela effect."

  • A false memory phenomenon

  • where a person recalls something that did not happen.

  • You say, "What does this have to do with Nelson Mandela?

  • "He died in prison in the 1980s."

  • At which point your friends pull up thousands of photos

  • of Nelson Mandela alive and well all the way through 2013.

  • But no matter how many photos they show you,

  • now you know the truth.

  • Your life is a duplication.

  • Okay, let's say you never have any memory issues.

  • You remember things exactly as they were

  • except when it comes to big projects.

  • And you're currently in the classroom giving a presentation

  • while completely naked.

  • Your mom and camp counselor and a guy from Cheers are there.

  • They all laugh and point at your exposed genitals.

  • You try to speak, but when you open your mouth

  • all of your teeth fall out.

  • All of a sudden you realize you're dreaming.

  • Now that you know you're lucid,

  • you'll be able to wake yourself back up

  • and return to reality.

  • You open your eyes and there you are in your bed.

  • "Good morning," says your dog.

  • But you don't have a talking dog.

  • Only Elon Musk has that.

  • You tell yourself to wake up and you do

  • but just to make sure you check a nearby clock.

  • If the numbers look melty, you know you're still dreaming.

  • Classic lucid dreaming technique 100% confirmed.

  • Only problem is unbeknownst to you,

  • your roommates signed you up for the reboot

  • of TLC's home renovation show "While You Were Out."

  • Except this season, instead of redecorating while you're

  • on vacation, they restyle your house while you're asleep.

  • And these style experts love Salvador Dali.

  • So they fill your apartment with melting clocks.

  • Now it will be impossible to know

  • whether you're trapped in the real world

  • or trapped in a simulation run

  • by the most powerful computer, your mind.

  • Let's say you've pinched yourself awake

  • And all the clocks are non-melty.

  • You know, you're living in the real world,

  • a world that you've known to be true since you were a baby.

  • But something's gnawing at you.

  • Every time you walk down the street, it gets busy.

  • And your wife keeps talking to you like she's

  • in a commercial.

  • And recently a spotlight fell out of the sky.

  • This spooky feeling gets so deep,

  • you decide to do the one thing

  • that everyone tells you is too dangerous.

  • Sailing.

  • The further you sail, the more a storm rages

  • until all of a sudden the mast of your sailboat penetrates

  • a cardboard wall?

  • Turns out your sky is just wallpaper.

  • Your ocean, a giant pool.

  • A voice speaks from the clouds.

  • "Truman, I can explain."

  • But it doesn't matter what he says.

  • Now, you know the truth.

  • Your world does fake run by a super producer.

  • So yes, you are living in a simulation.

  • It's just a matter of when and uh-oh.

  • Do the humans know that they're living in a simulation?

  • Okay, 100% and here's how.

  • Look most experts say humans are too stupid

  • to ever realize they're in a simulation.

  • Okay, but then again, humans came up with Dippin Dots

  • and we know that's the ice cream of the future.

  • And how.

  • I'm doctor expert Natasha Vaynblat.

  • And your worst fear has been confirmed.
