Is the world real?

New Technology Makes It Plausible the World Is a Simulation
EXCERPT: How long until memories, desires, thoughts are implanted through exactly the same neural chips that sucked them out? If they work, observer-created reality and a world-as-simulation can be implemented within an individual mind. There is nothing in principle to prevent software developers from creating games or worlds so immersive that people with brain interfaces might actually prefer to live in the simulated reality. Nor is there anything to prevent states from creating experiences so repulsive to match the worst imaginings of hell. If it were good enough, one would never know it wasn't "real." (Maybe this is how Brave New World arrives, --Bill)
