“In the future, our 'cyborg' descendants may look back on us with pity —
how sad it was that there was that phase during which this wondrous thing called consciousness and life were housed in such a delicate constraint.”
- Brian Greene, Ph.D., Prof. of Physics,
Columbia University, NYC

July 28, 2017 New York City, New York - Last year on April 5, 2016, at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, the sold out 17th Annual Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate took place before a packed audience moderated by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The question debated before the audience was: “Is this universe a simulation?” — meaning computer simulation. Some physicists and mathematicians say the answer is more likely to be yes, than not, and that eventually the “simulated universe theory” will be proved.
