"The Simulation Hypothesisby Riz Virk lays out both the technical aspects of computer simulation and the mystical reasons why we can take Philip K. Dick seriously when he proposed that we are living in a computer-generated reality." --Tessa B. Dick, author of Conversations with Philip K. Dick, wife of Philip K. Dick

" In this book, Riz Virk combines the mind of a scientist with the heart of a mystic, using video games to explain the virtual reality that we live in." --Dannion Brinkley, bestselling author ofSaved by the Lightand At Peace in the Light

"The Simulation Hypothesispresents a radical alternative to current models of reality. Riz Virk's book, relying his unique experience designing digital games, results in a stunning reappraisal of what it means to be human in an infinite universe." --Jacques Vallée, venture capitalist, author of Forbidden Science, former NASA and Stanford Research Institute scientist

"The Simulation Hypothesisis one of the few that could convince me that I probably live in a simulated universe. Encompassing the history of religions, philosophy, pop culture, physics and computers, Virk draws connections which show this theory is not only feasible but probably correct. If this sounds mind blowing, it is! I highly recommend this book - it expanded my mind's bandwidth!" --Diana Walsh Pasulka, Professor of Philosophy and Religion, University of North Carolina Wilmington, author of American Cosmic: UFOs, Religion, Technology
