Basically you have to believe in 5 conditions: 1. it is possible to simulate conciousness. 2. we will create enough computing power to simulate an entire planet. 3. we, or whatever advanced civilization is doing the simulation, did not destroy themselves. 4. The advanced civilization will want to do a simulation. 5. Given there are lots of simulations running, we are probably a simulated being rather than the being doing the simulation.
