A few months back I had a debate about Neil DeGrasse Tyson's comment about "we all could be living in the matrix" I saw this today and it reminded me of the debate.

 

While I believe it's possible as I like to stay open minded. The idea that we are all in a dream, or cave, or a jar in an aliens room, or a cave could be true I think the likelihood is lower than 1%. The amount of work to make it happen would be insane, and what would be the point? I mean take the matrix for instance, humans (and they could have used any animal and it would have been easier) don't produce more energy than they consume. It would be far more efficent and easier for robots to just create energy directly rather than going through the 3 or 4 steps required.

I think that for certain things "seems legit" is a valid argument. I could definately be in some alien's pod, for all I know I could be a computer program. But, I just made this idea up and in no way does that contribute to it being factual.
