As we use resources to power massive computer farms and process digital information, our technological progress is redistributing Earth’s matter from physical atoms to digital information. Eventually, we will reach a point of full saturation, a period in our evolution in which digital bits will outnumber atoms on Earth, a world “mostly computer simulated and dominated by digital bits and computer code,” according to an article published in AIP Advances. It is just a matter of time.
