Have you ever freaked out and wondered whether "The Matrix" is true, and we're all just living in a computer simulation? Or that all of this is just some future civilization's reality show?
--Well, good news. We're about to have a scientific answer to your existential crisis.
--Quantum physicists at the University of Washington say they've figured out a test that will determine whether or not we're living in the Matrix. It gets incredibly scientific when they explain it, but we think we've got the basic gist.
--They're going to run their own simulation of a "universe" on a much smaller scale, to see if it's scientifically possible for fake atomic particles to come together and create unique physical beings that weren't specifically programmed into a computer.
--If they find that it's possible, then there IS a chance we're all living inside of some future civilization's computer. If it's not possible, we're outside the matrix.
