If we live in a Matrix, then …
Current thinking in some scientific quarters is that there is a “super intelligence” [God?] providing a holographic matrix that we humans experience as life.
Our consciousness is programmed to tap into this matrix.
Here is some of the thinking about this:

What this leads to is the concept of God, re-envisioned by science.
Consider that if we are in a matrix, created and continually updated by a super-intelligence or intelligences, such “creators” (or “game players”) have a very complicated set of programming code they are dealing with and have dealt with.
That is, each microscopic aspect of life as recorded by human minds and aspects occurring now, are or have been programmed in details so profound that only “a being than which nothing greater can be conceived” could be the creator.
That’s the ontological argument for God by Anselm, about which you can read HERE
The matrix hypothesis seems “insane” by me, and goes to the current thinking that alien life abounds in the universe, which is a probability, with a slight tinge, by science and other thinkers, that UFOs may be harbingers of that alien life.
But isn’t that just a reversion to the idea of God (or gods)?
We are living in a matrix, that’s certain, a matrix of madness.
