Quantum realism proposes that quantum processing generates the physical world as a virtual reality. If quantum reality generates physical reality every moment, everything around you is real but it isn’t what you see. The claim that the physical world is generated by the quantum world means that the laws governing physical events arise from quantum laws that work in a non-physical way. We then live in a dynamic quantum world not a dead physical world, in a participatory universe not an objective one. This contradicts the current dismal view of physics, of the universe as a dead machine winding down.
That the physical world is a virtual reality generated by quantum processing implies that there must be:
- A processor. Every virtual reality is generated by a processor.
- A boot-up. Every virtual reality has to boot-up.
- Null processing. Every virtual reality runs null processing when idle.
- A screen refresh rate. Every virtual reality presents on a screen with a finite refresh rate.
Does the current evidence support these implications? And if so, is reality fake?
