Any one or more of them.

If you watch the video he clearly talks about the Universe being a powerful computer simulation, meaning that everything including us was programmed. Now I do not want to get into whether this is real or not, I just want to ask that if this were true, and Tyson says that it may be true, then we are the product of a great programmer who would fall into the vernacular of what God represents on the Earth. So how can Tyson put forth this theory and claim that the computer simulations creator is not God? Note, I have attached the description of the video which is real and if you search this topic you will find that it is real no matter how silly that this sounds. That said if you find this ridiculous, please do not attribute that ridiculousness to me when I am not proposing this theory.

The imagination can pretend/simulate things that are not possible in physical reality
If the universe is a simulation, what is it a simulation of? And does that simulation include a simulation of itself?
The simulation argument is generally attributed to Nick Bostrom. It was presented as a Philosophy paper in about 2003.

The original paper
Here's some of [Bostrom's] abstract:This paper argues 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
(3) we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation.

Pop. Sci. has wanted to know the philosophy behind the science. Also films like "the Matrix" were quite popular back then.
A few other people link this simulation argument with other theories like the "Fermi paradox" and the idea of a "great filter" that may lie in front of us.
