Professor Melvin Vopson's "second law of information dynamics" research suggests our reality might be a simulation, challenging traditional views. He proposes an experiment to explore this further.
Physicist Says He’s Found New Evidence That Could Prove We’re Living In A Simulation
According to a scientist, his latest findings may confirm that people are indeed living in simulations.
A new physics law developed by University of Portsmouth associate professor Melvin Vopson may demonstrate that we are only living in a Matrix-like environment.
In an earlier study, Professor Vopson made the argument that, like human DNA, information and elementary particles have mass.
He discovered a new physics rule last year that describes the behavior of information and is dubbed the "second law of information dynamics."
The new law may make it possible to forecast the effects of genetic changes in organisms.
It is predicated on the second rule of thermodynamics, which states that entropy, an indicator of disorder in a system that is isolated, either rises or falls.

Professor Vopson predicted that as time went on, information systems' entropy would likewise rise.
But M. Night Shyamalan's research threw him a curveball: he discovered that it really doesn't change and is instead slowly declining.
He came to the conclusion that evolution theory and genetics research might be greatly impacted by the second law of information dynamics, or infodynamics.
Stated differently, it might not be the primary cause of genetic changes.
“My studies point to a bizarre and interesting possibility that we don't live in an objective reality and that the entire universe might be just a super advanced virtual reality simulation,” Professor Vopson wrote in a paper published in AIP Advances.
He added: "The paper also provides an explanation for the prevalence of symmetry in the universe.”
"Symmetry principles play an important role with respect to the laws of nature, but until now there has been little explanation as to why that could be. My findings demonstrate that high symmetry corresponds to the lowest information entropy state, potentially explaining nature's inclination towards it.”
He went on to say that the process of eliminating unnecessary data is similar to a "computer deleting or compressing waste code" in order to boost power and conserve storage.
Thus, it lends credence to the theory that we are residing in a simulation.
He did, however, emphasize that additional research is needed to validate this notion.
"One possible route would be my experiment devised last year to confirm the fifth state of matter in the universe — and change physics as we know it — using particle-antiparticle collisions,” Professor Vopson said.
Quite thrilling stuff.
The idea that our reality is a simulation is exciting, but we should be cautious and investigate it scientifically.
Vopson's experiment, focusing on the fifth state of matter, is a crucial step in either proving or disproving this idea.
