Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat, and Iranian Leviathan: A Monumental History of Mithra’s Abode.
Here he discusses virtual reality and other simulacra with a view to understanding paranormal phenomena. Among the subjects discussed are augmented reality, the simulation argument, and aspects of quantum theory that can best be understood in the context of the simulation hypothesis. The discussion concludes with an examination of the holographic universe theory. A number of examples are drawn from popular film, literature, and video games.
Many viewers will know that Jason Reza Jorjani has suffered from libel and persecution as a result of his, generally misunderstood, political views. He is a brilliant scholar who has now been unfairly disgraced and is forced to fight a legal battle, while continuing his research and writing, without any regular employment. Therefore we have set up this “Go Fund Me” page in order to assist this worthy individual.
