Simulated reality is the proposition that reality could be simulated—often computer simulated—to a degree indistinguishable from 'true' reality. It could contain conscious minds which may or may not know that they are living inside a simulation. In its strongest form, the "simulation hypothesis" claims we actually are living in such a simulation.[1]

According to Doctor Nick Bostrom of Oxford University, there is a 20% Chance that we are living in a simulation
