How Do You Know if You Are In The Matrix? - [briefly]
05:03 AM EDT - Oct,13 2012 - post a comment

If you were in fact in the Matrix, how would you know? According to Silas Beane of the University of Bonn, there is in fact a test you can take to see if you are stuck living in a simulation.
f we were in a computer simulation right now, how would we even know? Well, University of Bonn nuclear physicist Silas Beane and some of his colleagues have come up with a test that exploits a feature of said simulations; their need to be discretized. In the physical world, distances can be infinitesimally small, but not so in the world of computers where things need to have a limited set of values. Researchers use a lattice (i.e., 3D graph paper) to model how the strong nuclear force works over time on a femto scale. As the scale gets smaller and smaller, the simulation eventually hits a limit on how much energy particles can have. This phenomenon has an analog in the physical world called the Greisen-Zatsepin-Zuzmin (GZK) cut off, and Beane and company believe we can test to see if it behaves the way we expect from theory, or the way we'd expect in a discretized model like a computer simulation. If the latter is true, it would provide evidence that we are all stuck in a computer:

"The numerical simulation scenario could reveal itself in the distributions of the highest energy cosmic rays exhibiting a degree of rotational symmetry breaking that reflects the structure of the underlying lattice."
