Scientists Confirm We Are Not Living In a Computer Simulation Created By Aliens

The idea that humanity is just some simulation in a computer developed by some advanced alien civilization has been floating around for many years, but recent boosts for the theory from big names like Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Neil deGrasse Tyson have reignited the issue.

Fortunately for the many people who got worked up about that terrifying scenario, a team of scientists at Oxford say they've proven the theory is just science fiction. 

Publishing their findings in Science Advances, the researchers came to the conclusion that the existence of a computer with the capacity to create a universe worth of simultaneous interactions is "impossible." 

Research heads Zohar Ringel and Dmitry Kovrizh found that in order to store the information found in just a couple hundred electrons, the simulation computer's memory processors would require more atoms than the number that currently exist in our universe. 

This pokes holes in the wholehearted beliefs of many big names in the scientific community who've publicly suggested that humanity is just the brainchild of super-intelligent programmers.

Funnily enough, the Oxford researchers had initially set out to study magnetic fields, only to later find themselves debunking the "simulation hypothesis."
