Well somebodys getting famous. :-)

"Nick Bostrom discusses the computational requirements needed to

simulate human existence. He offers a proof based on the anthropic

principle, that you are almost certainly a computer simulation and not

"real". The idea is that given that humans don't go extinct in

geologically short time then eventually computer capability will allow

complete simulation of the human cortex. Consequently, there must be far

more simulations running in future millennia than seconds since you were

born. Thus its astronomically more likely you are a simulation than real ...
