I think the "matrix" explanation is an interesting philosophical exercise, but does not address any of the problems that can be interrogated scientifically. I agree with Alan, that it is essentially the same as having a god, only stipulating that we know something of the workings of that god, rather than allowing it to be an entire mystery. I think part of why the supercomputer description appears apt and in line with physics is that we strive to understand the universe in terms of rules and algorithms--of course a logical and mathematical explanation is going to jive well with our own logic- and math-based models!
Bill Nye is a complete joke.Maybe he is wrong, maybe he is right. He is very critical of other people's ideas and makes a career out of it, then he comes out with this?Pop science at its greatest. Unless he provides a test for this completely unoriginal concept he is no better than anyone else.
