We live in a world where there are no excuses why you can’t achieve something. Anything is possible in life and there isn’t any obstacles you can’t overcome. If you set your mind on something and go after it, you can achieve it. Technology is advancing, the internet allows us to access an unlimited amount of data, our phones make it possible to communicate to people across the world by face-time, and we can reach millions of people by the press of a button. A few nights ago I did a Facebook live talk for 5 minutes and I had 500 people join in that short period of time. It was if I had my own even at the comfort of my home. We have the same amount of access and technology capabilities that the president of the United States had 20 years ago.
While on my flight to New York I watched a video on YouTube where Elon Musk spoke at Code Conference earlier this year. If you don’t know Elon Musk, he is the CEO of Spacex and Tesla Motors. He’s the guy who created the car that will drive itself. Pretty cool stuff. Elon talked about our advancements in technology and how exponential we are growing. By 2025 we will have the capability to go to Mars. There was one specific topic Elon talked about, which blew my mind. It’s making me look at things with a whole new perspective, especially on how capable we really are.
Elon spoke about Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) and simulations. He said if you assume any rate of improvement of technology at all then in the future, games or A.I. will become an indistinguishable form of reality. Basically we won’t know the different between what is real and what is a robot.
Based off of the exponential growth of technology and our advancement, the question is, did someone beat us to this technology and are we living inside the simulation of the game? Crazy, I know. Elon said, based on theory, the odds that we are in base reality is one in billions. Which is basically by theory almost impossible to think that we aren’t living as A.I. inside of a simulation.
I’m still trying to wrap my mind around all of this, and I don’t really have an answer about what is true or not true, because really no one can be certain. This theory certainly does make me think in more depth about things and continues to show proof that anything is possible in life.
This specific theory allows me to expand my mind even more. I’m not telling you this to scare you are lead you to believe what is right or wrong, but I do want it to force you to expand your mind and think outside the box. Anything is possible in life and you can achieve anything you set your mind to. We are capable of amazing things, and if we set our mind on something big in life, we can achieve it if we really want to.
Go out and achieve the things that you may think are impossible or others tell you are impossible. Anything is possible in life.
