Friday Fry Up: The Merge — Sara Galbiati, Peter Helles Eriksen and Tobias Selnaes Markussen


Most people would agree that this world exists, that the screen that you are reading this text on is real. But what if it isn’t? Could it be that our world is just a construction – a manufactured illusion?

A few years ago, this existential discussion was limited to the academic world and science fiction. But things are changing. Bank of America recently issued a report to all of their customers in which they stated that the probability that we live in an artificial reality is between 20% and 50%. And the Tesla founder, Elon Musk, believes that the chance that we do not live in a computer simulation is one in a billion.

The Merge visually explores the question: Are we living in a computer simulation?

The merge is available for preorder now via Kickstarter with just half a day left on the clock. Visit — to secure a future copy and help this book become reality.
