“The Simulation Hypothesis by Riz Virk lays out both the technical aspects of computer simulation and the mystical reasons why we can take Philip K. Dick seriously when he proposed that we are living in a computer-generated reality. His vision that this world is not quite real informed much of his science fiction.”
-Tessa B. Dick, author of Conversations with Philip K. Dick, wife of Philip K. Dick
In this book, Riz Virk combines the mind of a scientist with the heart of a mystic, using video games to explain the virtual reality that we live in.”

The Simulation Hypothesis:
An MIT Computer Scientist Shows Why AI, Quantum Physics and Eastern Mystics All Agree We Are In a Video Game
"The Simulation Hypothesis presents a radical alternative to current models of reality ... Many fields rejected or neglected by modern science ... can be brought under the framework proposed by Riz Virk, relying on his unique experience designing games.
The result is a stunning reappraisal of what it means to be human in an infinite universe."
-- Jacques Vallée, venture capitalist, author of Forbidden Science, former NASA and Stanford Research Institute scientist
The Simulation Hypothesis, by best-selling author, renowned MIT computer scientist and Silicon Valley video game designer Rizwan Virk, explains one of the most daring and consequential theories of our time.
Drawing from research and concepts from computer science, artificial intelligence, video games, quantum physics, and referencing both speculative fiction and ancient eastern spiritual texts, Virk shows how all of these traditions come together to point to the idea that we may be inside a simulated reality like the Matrix.
Whether you are a computer scientist, a fan of science fiction like the Matrix movies, a video game enthusiast, or a spiritual seeker, The Simulation Hypothesis touches on all these areas, and you will never look at the world the same way again!
