Learn more hosts the influential work of philosopher Nick Bostrom, presenting the Simulation Argument, which posits that at least one of three scenarios must be true regarding the nature of our existence and the future of human civilization. This website offers in-depth exploration of the hypothesis that either human civilizations will likely go extinct before achieving a “posthuman” stage capable of running high-fidelity ancestor simulations; that if such civilizations could exist, they would probably not run significant numbers of these simulations; or that we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation ourselves. The site provides access to Bostrom’s original paper, FAQs, and a variety of resources and discussions aimed at unpacking the argument’s implications, theoretical foundations, and the broader philosophical questions it raises about reality, technology, and the future of humanity.
