Do We Live in a Matrix?

I admit that my life has been most unusual the past 2+ years I've been divorced. For the first time in my life, things seem to be coinciding and coming together in a way that I call "The Convergence." There seem to be no accidents. In fact, it seems almost, well...orchestrated.  

 Researchers think they may have found evidence that we do, indeed, live in a plotted out matrix of sorts.

Constraints on the Universe as a Numerical Simulation

Silas R. Beane, Zohreh Davoudi, Martin J. Savage
"Observable consequences of the hypothesis that the observed universe is a numerical simulation performed on a cubic space-time lattice or grid are explored. The simulation scenario is first motivated by extrapolating current trends in computational resource requirements for lattice QCD into the future. Using the historical development of lattice gauge theory technology as a guide, we assume that our universe is an early numerical simulation with unimproved Wilson fermion discretization and investigate potentially-observable consequences. Among the observables that are considered are the muon g-2 and the current differences between determinations of alpha, but the most stringent bound on the inverse lattice spacing of the universe, b^(-1) >~ 10^(11) GeV, is derived from the high-energy cut off of the cosmic ray spectrum. The numerical simulation scenario could reveal itself in the distributions of the highest energy cosmic rays exhibiting a degree of rotational symmetry breaking that reflects the structure of the underlying lattice."

Might it be that those moments of paranormal activity might be explained by glitches in the matrix or perhaps loopholes from other universe matrices? When we die, do we go to the "real" world?  Could the fact that our universe is completely interdependent for oxygen, carbon dioxide, sunlight, and water be signs of self containment???

Now, let's reflect on what happened in the movie "The Matrix" -
