Are You Living In a Computer Simulation? Nick Bostrom Speaks About Three Possibilities

http://www.simulation-argument.com/ The argument is that at least one of the following propositions is true: (1) the human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a "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. It follows that the belief that there is a significant chance that we will one day become posthumans who run ancestor-simulations is false, unless we are currently living in a simulation. A number of other consequences of this result are also discussed.

The Global Brain and the Prescience of Terence McKenna - April 1983

"...there is a level of hierarchical control that is being exerted by the human species as a whole. That the destiny of man as a whole is not in the hands of governments and corporations...it is in the hands of a weirdly democratic, amoeboid-like, hyper intelligent super organism which is called everybody. And as we come to terms with this, as we take our place embedded in the body of everybody and information flows more freely, the reality of this informational creature is seen more clearly, it’s an organism, we are having a symbiotic relationship with an organism made of information."
