Inside this Book – As a kid growing up in the Midwest in the early 1980s, I loved video games. You could say I grew up with them. My friends and I would go to D&B Pizza to watch the older kids (who had more quarters than we did) playing the arcade games there. These games, now classics, included Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, and even Dragon’s Lair, which confounded and delighted us because we couldn’t decide if it was an animated cartoon or a video game! When my family finally got an Atari video game console (or VCS) at home, my friends often came over to my house to play the latest cartridge-based games. During this time, as I watched my friends play, I became intrigued not just by the gameplay itself but by the “illusion” that there was a self-contained world “in there,” inside the video game that was being displayed on our TV set. I don’t know exactly where or when this notion of a self-contained world first emerged in my mind, but it happened particularly in games that were trying to be realistic.
Inside this book –The Simulation Hypothesis PDF Book by Rizwan Virk – At the same time that I was exploring the connections between quantum physics and simulated reality during my adventures as an entrepreneur and technologist, I had also started to travel a parallel path exploring different states of consciousness. It began as a simple search for techniques like meditation that would help me become a more focused programmer and a more successful startup founder. Eventually, it led me to explore the ancient Eastern traditions, particularly the Yogic traditions and Buddhist philosophy, and convinced me there was more going in our physical world than science gave credit to. I wrote about some of these experiences in my first book, Zen Entrepreneurship. As I continued to study the ancient Buddhist and Hindu texts and philosophies, I found they were much more in alignment with the simulation hypothesis than a materialistic worldview. The Eastern traditions are built on the idea that the world around us is not “the real world.” In fact, they believe it is a world created by our minds as we make choices in the world. We are so engrossed in this world, like players addicted to a video game, that we get lost in this world of maya, this world of illusion.
