Gabrielowski : “The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” ― Nikola Tesla

M H : Would an all loving God allow such suffering? Probably not.... Would a voyeuristic super intelligent species playing the Sims allow it.... Yes.

moldvox : Pretty sure we went through some sort of update in 2016.

Johnny Threefour : Even if we are in some space nerd's computer simulation that still doesn't answer where the space nerd came from. I want to know the fundamental start point to it all.

Angel Wings : It's fun reading through all the comments and seeing how many people are trying to sound super deep because of the content of this video. Some comments are really intriguing, others are just pretentious because at the end if the day, nobody really knows the truth or anything at all. One question "answered" simply leads to a million more questions and we're back at square one.

Constant K : I wonder if inventions are just updates and some random person is selected to put them out. they then become what we call geniuses

Samuel Showery : I'm still waiting for Morpheus to call me while I'm at work and get me out early without my boss seeing me. But in all seriousness Russell Brand you are an incredible human being!

emilymac2003 : If we are... There is way too much cleaning involved 😝

Poop Coin : YES! David Icke has been saying this for years

Soothed By Rain : "Every culture that's ever existed has operated under the illusion that it understood 95% of reality and that the other 5% would be delivered in the next 18 months, and from Egypt forward they've been running around believing they had a perfect grip on things and yet we look back at every society that preceded us with great smugness at how naive they all were. Well, it never occurs to us, then, that maybe we're whistling in the dark too!" - -- Terence McKenna

mb : Simulation got me thinking of John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life.

g g : I'm so grateful to you for making these videos

DrPittenstein : Simulation discussion is irrelevant. Much like the 'what if we were created 5 seconds ago, complete with memories?' it's unprovable either way so ultimately meaningless. 4am stoner philosophy. This obsession with 'reality' is interesting though. Our reality is clearly all we get and all we're meant to know. What good would it do an ant to understand what a parking ticket is? The ultimate 'reality' of a computer program is binary code, very enlightened for a character in a game to develop awareness of that but it ultimately achieves nothing. It wouldn't help the character in the game in any way. If anything he's more likely to lose a life!

Joey Cap : The universe is a server, our brains are the hardware, and were running a program called conscious

You Deserve A Comfortable Climate : I think minimalists are gods way of running the simulation lag free. Hoarders must be a horrible problem with the program

taraney alicia rae : honestly, we will never know the truth.... we keep questioning the world trying to find answers but were never going to actually know. i think the answer is way beyond human contemplation

ozzyg82 : He’s not the messiah, he’s a very naughty boy!

d d : God controls things. Yes. Call it what you want to call it

Oliver Lowe : AS Bill Hicks once said Rip , WE are the imagination of ourselves...

GemmaDoyleOfficial : Firstly, beautiful video quality Russell...Now for what you're talking about; I believe that the higher energies of the Universe are positive power, and they want us to do great things in life. However, we get exactly what we believe we will

Exotiic Cody : If where in a simulated universe then why is what we call the universe growing?

ThatGirl FiGGy : Dear God, I AM ever so greatful for giving us a Russell Brand.. cause I know he doesn't actually have to do this, But he still does. - Thank you. Sat Nam.

Pedro Solano : What Elon and Tyson fail to explain is the baseline of all simulations: if we are in a simulation running in some super advance computer, in what kind of reality does that computer exists (and its programmer): the "real" reality or yet another simulation? if it the answer is another simulation we can ask the same question recursively, if it is "real" reality, again the same arguments can be applied to that one and still wonder if that is simulation. As mostly scientific people, Elon and Tyson tend to fall back into the notion that material is the only real thing, hence the only real way to have free will and consciousness, they hypothesize, is through advance algorithms, running on a physical computer. As you pointed out, we are "limited" by our senses, we can only perceive external reality through our senses; but colors do not exist in reality, they are just wave lengths; tastes don't reality exist in reality; they are chemical combinations and mixes; music does not exist in reality, they are just disturbances in air pressure.... oh but they do exist, for us, we create them, constantly. This is *qualia*, and its totally left out of the argument when considering a purely materialistic worldview. In all regards, if life and consciousness is spirit having a physical experience, then we could say we are spirit simulating physicality, a "simulation" indeed; but describing all of this this way falls very short imo.

VaMPy : Well said, Brand. Well said.

LaMarcGasolDridge : What if we are double simulated? What if our creator was simulated by someone else?

T Arnold : My goodness; what an erudite, thoughtful, intelligent and inspirational man Mr Brand is! Just when I'm fearing for the world my kids are going to inherit, Russell Brand rebalances the proverbial scales in just a few short minutes! He speaks profound words without ever sounding pretentious or patronising. I'd suggest he's one of the finest minds of his generation..... To think I thought he was an intolerable fu*kwit just 6 or7 years ago when he was involved with Katy Perry....Wow do I feel ashamed of myself: Definitely have learned a lesson about making assumptions through listening to him over the last couple of years. His generosity in making his work so accessible to so many people without financial remuneration which lucidly he has no obligation whatsoever to do furthermore demonstrates his altruist nature. Thank you Russell! Best wishes to all folk. Tracy.

Sandra Borg : If I am simulated well they gave up on my programming fast cause I just seam to eat and watch YouTube lying down in bed .

Pi Boy : Hi! I think that our mathematics are flat, a two dimension science. Our understanding is very limited because of this. Great video!

Justin Wil : I believe the general basis of Elon’s theory is that the universe has been around 13 billion years and human civilization has been around 6-7 thousand years meaning in . 00000046% of the universe’s existence we have developed enough technology that we are practically on the level of augmented reality and mathematically it is extremely unlikely that a previous civilization was not more advanced than us. Giving a strong possibility that we are living in an simulation.

terryebeg : Russell sooner or later must have a conversation with this south indian yogi called sadh guru. He would blow is freeking mind. Trust me.

Franz Petschel : I recommend “Myth of ourselves “ by Alan Watts

IAmRedherrings : If we're in a simulation then the being that programmed my life is a psychotic sadist

Zach Van Harris JR : Russell Brand on YouTube is a good find for me, thank you ✌❤ - Zach Van Harris JR

cwall9962 : We believe there's a need for causality, therefore we create an ultimate cause. But the logic is flawed. Just because we feel a need for an ultimate cause doesn't mean one exists. Most of what is cited as an indication that something greater is out there is sheer coincidence.

Live Large : Russell Brand got clean and became a YouTube monk wizard with incredible thoughts relating existential feelings with rational logic and understanding

Mike4spirit : mabey consciousness /"collective consciousness " creates matter and it's time we woke up and took our power back to create what matters.... thanks russ!!!

Pam Bennett : You’re so cool Russell. Nota sellout. Maybe instead of consciousness preceding matter they go back and forth. Consciousness creates the brain which experiences and sends a signal back to consciousness which continues to create in accordance with that signal? Idk maybe I’m thinking in pretzels

IRENA : I will say it again, we are NOT in a simulation, but our SOULS are. We are the SIMULATION!!!

Comrade2face : Why is my simulated life so crap! oh the great programmer that created me!

Alto's Music Lab : I really am simulated; and for us that is enlightenment! let's shout out like Horton hears a Who!

Akshay Patil : I really hate when one talks about simulation and all. We cannot know that we are in a simulation and it is pointless to talk about things that might be true or might not be. What difference does it make who created the universe and why. What these so called intelligent scientists talk is of no use it is just intellectual entertainment and meaningless. Who cares if this is a simulation(well people's suffering is real) we are part of the mystery that cannot be defined. How can our tiny logical human mind grasp and make conclusions. It's stupid. Our focus must be on improving the humanity day by day and that's it.

Makaveli Soldier : I miss the old Rubberbandits intro/outro.

Scott M : The Buddha didn't teach that the world and everything we know was created by a supreme consciousness. He taught the path that leads to the end of suffering. Four Noble Truths.

Camel Moon : I am now a Russell Brand fan... well done.

1987shachar : "more likely we are in a simulation" SCIENCE "there is a god who created us all " YOU PREMITIVE MEN.....

NetraAmorosi : I don't think the universe is a simulation, but our PERCEPTION of it is a fabrication based on what are senses can pickup and how our brain interprets that data. The reality constructed by our brain is far from a perfect representation of what is really going on around us. It's just good enough for us to interact with the environment and others well enough for us to avoid harm and try to fulfill our physical needs. With drugs your just altering how the brain interprets the data essentially.

Liann Green : This theory is just another branch of heavily propagated Scientism, role out the usual mouth pieces to convince the "enlightened" masses of the apparent fact.

The SuperHeart . Org Foundation : @russellbrand siiigghhhh... Thank you... So refreshing... welcome back!!! :)

Fritterskitter : Does it really matter whether we are in a simulation or not? Shouldn't we just appreciate what we've got and make it the best we can for everyone?
