Back Row 416 – 418 | Simulation Theory


About This Episode

You step on to a bus and see that the woman in front of you has shoulder length bleach blond hair and a red hair band holding it into a ponytail. Nothing weird there. But then you notice the two woman in each next seat forward is the same size woman, with the same hair, the same color hair band… even the same color shirts peeking over the top of the seat-backs. You chuckle, “Glitch in the Matrix” you say, and brush it off, fondly remembering that 1999 movie and moving on with your life. But what if that movie was created specifically to make you laugh off the idea as silly… by those OUTSIDE of the Matrix?

This week, Radio Matt & Mo are examining the effect the Matrix series had on society, the growing scientific idea that us being in a simulation is not only possible, but likely, and how the Simulation Theory could actually be Creationism in disguise.
