Simulated reality is the idea that reality can be simulated to the point that it is indistinguishable from “actual” reality—for example, by quantum machine simulation. It may include conscious minds that are unaware that they are immersed in a simulation. This is not the same as the new augmented reality concept, which is technologically feasible. Virtual reality is readily distinguishable from real-life experiences; viewers are never in any doubt of what they are doing. Simulated truth, on the other hand, would be difficult or impossible to discern from “actual” reality. This subject has sparked a lot of discussion, ranging from metaphysical controversy to functional programming applications.
