Too sexy for reality

We're all models, you know what Dr. B means, while you do your little walk on the server.
We’re all models, you know what Dr. B means, and we do our little turn on the server.

University of Oxford physics professor Nick Bostrom has evaluated our shared reality and has come to a crossroads. If human beings have the potential to evolve into a future “posthuman” form capable of creating a computer simulation of their past, then either:

1. The human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching [this] ‘posthuman’ stage.
2. Any posthuman civilization is extremely unlikely to run a significant number of simulations of their evolutionary history (or variations thereof).
3. We are almost certainly living in a computer simulation.

Given the choice between (a) being extinct, (b) having no more Civ games or (c) living in an elaborate hologram program, then we opt for (c) we are all supermodels. Each and every sexy one of us.
