NASA Scientist uses Grand Theft Auto IV as an Example in new Theory

In a recent interview with Vice, NASA Scientist Rich Terrile talks about his theory that Real Life itself may just be a simulation like any of todays computer games.
He then goes on to compare his theory to Grand Theft Auto IV running on a Playstation 3. (Grand Theft Auto IV, Industry, NASA, PS3, Rockstar Games)

We are in a transition stage between reality and imagination.

"One explanation is that we’re living within a simulation, seeing what we need to see when we need to see it." - That's funny I have joked with my friends about that very thing. I tell them that I am the only real person in existence and that everything and everyone is just drawn when they are around me. Works good, I haven't suddenly seen a tree drawn in the distance yet :)

Same thought came when i was a kid , it was just a thought when i was a little lonely or sad or something like that ...

But it is not , as you see , each have his own thinking , things are not the same , there must be a reason for life and death , it's unknown what GOD made us for , i think these questions are coming from the devil to stop living the right way ...

Here is an example of what i mean , some times i ask my self , since im going to die and it is a right for all of us , wether im going to hell or heaven , what's the use of that for GOD , is he preparing something for us or its a sim to show his power and upgrade it like what this scientist says Or its just a reason we cant understand , these questions are useless because we only gonna know until we meet him after we die , it makes us avoid GOD and it is creation which is this universe that is too complecated and organised to come from nothing and no reason ...

What im saying doesn't mean we shouldnt try to discover things :) , im saying it as if something bad happened to you and thought of this then it is from the devil to hate GOD , what is happening to us even if it is bad GOD let it happen because it is the best thing for us , you dont know how GOD loves you , you dont know how many time he helped you , you would worship him every second if you knew ...

I feel most of the time that life is more like a test for us , live it the right way , defend what is right and you wont regret anything ., accept what ever happen to you ...

Lol Nasa Scientists must be dropping LSD or eat Magic Mushrooms cause thats exactly what I thought trying to play video games while on a trip when I was a teen lol. Either that or he watched the Matrix way too much.
