If "reality" is a simulation, and if this simulation was created by "someone/something" then wouldn't it make sense that this "someone/something" is what we call God, hence, faith is simply a spiritual acceptance of the existence of "God"..?

So why don't programmers and computers in this created world show anything like the ability to do the same (create a world inside this created world). Where the f- Musk and the other doofus got the 'probability' argument is beyond me.

Nice in theory but everything within a fabricated quantum scientific realm is purely theory based. We have absolutely no physical proof that there is a creator or a higher conscious other than our own. As our “human” civilisation evolved we got the 10 commandments which I believe were to prevent anarchy and give us rules to live by m, however those rules were part of some old ancient Chinese whispers called the bible which after 2019 years will be as accurate as the stream of piss out of Russell Brands dick after a 4 day sex bender.

We are not in a simulated universe but there are laws and algorithms that govern output. A computer simualation is a mere facsimile of the reality. Yoga does a good job of explaining this but most people are to afraid to venture in to the unknown and let go of their preconceived notions..

Thank you for sharing your insightful views with regards to consciousness preceding matter. It certainly seems that way. Quantum Science alone is sharing the fact that an atom is 99.9999% empty space. Also, the teaching of Vedanta shares this view.

Right, let's take all the rich people's suggestion that life is REALLY just a simulation. So, while you're poor, don't worry, it doesn't matter this is all a simulation. Don't worry if this life isn't working out for you, this is just a simulation. This is why religion became dangerous and, now, science is falling into the same thought.

Keep pushing the psyops,.. the elites love it when people are confused and spaced out it disconnects them from reality, and pushes them into existential nihilism. Anyone who's thinking about Simulated Universe Theory is not going to be a problem for the elites.

I think maybe reality as we experience it is- in the best case - a product of our relationship with God. To the extent that we can have a strong relationship with God is our reality cohesive, coherent, living, not ‘programmed’ because it has room for non-deterministic, ‘open’ phenomena, and to the extent that we separate ourselves from God is it deterministic, finite, ‘closed’, and ‘countable’. The Old Testament says about God, ‘He has made his home in deep darkness’- ie, in the place beyond the ‘light’, or conscious comprehension. To me that is very beautiful, and leaves room for the unfathomable infinite.

Wait, wasn’t Elon Musk into Ayn Rand? And she espoused naive realism. By the way, I think Ayn Rand was wrong about nearly everything... just so no one gets the idea that I agree with her ideas. That would pain me.

The programmer came online once, I think he did some shit with bread and wine? oh and something about walking on water too lol. This makes me think very differently about the creator. If he programmed pain and starvation into the npc's of his world just so that he could go down, use haks to help them with problems he made, is he really that great of a guy? Especially seeing as the lazy bastard hasn't been online for 2018 years.

I believe our own consciousness is nothing more than an evolutionary adaptation. The true survivors are genes. We are their survival machines and I suppose we are living in a matrix. Just not one created by a superior all intelligent and loving being but one from gene mutation. Emotion including love is a part of the evolutionary adaptation which helps genes pass from one generation to the next. We place such reverence on our emotions yet they are just chemical reactions within the brain. I know people hate the idea of humans being an evolutionary consequence of gene mutation but that's just the way it is. There's still enormous wonder and awe in evolution by natural selection. I find it so awesome to think about the time and energy that genes have gone through which gave way to such an amazing diverse array of life....

Have you read "Conversations with God" Russell? It agrees with your conclusion that the higher intelligence is love, and yet it's greatest gift to us is the capacity for free will. The God has no need of anything from us. It knows we will eventually wake up, it's just a matter of when... and it has no agenda for us to be in a hurry.

Language talking words are our collective creation. Once you determine a value to a concept it fixes it and all extrapolations from the determined core have to maintain values consistent with the seed concept. That is as in a play or movie or novel or picture? You have to maintain plausibilty or retain suspension of disbelief or the entire edifice collapses. It is pure conciousness eternal that creates this dialoque. In the first place. The key is how perfect is the ongoing inertia of the model creation
buddhastaxi666 (3 months ago)
I see it like this. We are in a simulation cognitively. We update it in reference to the external processes. Aim being to have our inner model close to the external processes. Then our ultimate state is mindfullness that does not project or interpret....and is non material...not producing samsara.????que?
Psychiatrysts (3 months ago)
If we are in a simulation which can be frozen like a movie, where the simulation controller could freely roam our frozen frame, then that would contradict Einstein's theory. Why? Because of the paradox of two clocks synchronized when they travel past each other in opposite directions. Later, each clock must be slower than the other. By freezing reality the controller could examine both clocks in the frozen frame and only one time could exist on each clock. But we can imagine a freezable reality so why wouldn't it be freezable? I'll wager EINSTEIN WAS WRONG!

I was laying down, I thinking how weird life is now...all of the bloggers,vloggers, youtubers etc. you can spend an entire day watching other people's daily life. Then I thought if you were watching the video, from the persons day, and they were wearing camera glasses, you would literally be seeing their lives through your screen. If they had an amazing/interesting life, if you hooked into theirs, you wouldn't need one of your own. You could practically pay someone for you to live life through their eyes... With enough time and imagination, plus technology the way it is, you could," feel " what they are experiencing. Then I realized this is so happening. The deeper I went with this the crazier it sounded, but made perfect sense. That is a simple breakdown of just one of thousands of ways to have the simulated reality possibly be happening, and has been happening for a long time. Every day I trip on how fast things are changing. Being 54, I saw everything go from one way of living without cell phones, without gaming, without computers accessible to all, and life seemed so busy...how the hell did I get my questions that I have now answered in a matter of seconds. How did I go with no communication by cell phones? How the hell did I get directions fast enough when I was going somewhere- I didn't watch t.v, except standard cable, black and white mini tv in my room growing up. I know one thing for sure. Time, was slower. I got a lot done- I didn't have to explain why I wasn't available by phone- there were phone booths when you needed to make a call on the run...now entertainment is what life is about. My head spins when I look at a Netflix, showtime, Hulu, whatever play list...how the hell are there so many fricking movies and shows out? I am overwhelmed. Always feeling like I might be missing something important, life changing if I don't keep up. Life is a trip.

How will we know from within the simulation unless we are external to it? No god... now a programmer ... ? . Perhaps Science cannot tolerate spirituality so it needs a computer programmer . I guess they know what they are speaking about. Gödel's incompleteness theorems ...there will always be statements about the natural numbers that are true, but that are not provable within the system. The second incompleteness theorem, an extension of the first, shows that the system cannot demonstrate its own consistency. I would like to make a statement about god which would prove the non-existence....oops I cannot because that would be unscientific and would be a meaningless statement as I cannot come up with an experiment that would either prove or disprove God. As for this Avatar in this game I will choose to believe that there is more than I know about . This Avatar has some game cheats called angels. Oh yeah this Avatar is a programmer . I find the work of Steven Wolfram (New Science) and Sylvester James Gates (code embedded in reality) interesting! Just would hate it if GOD was a programmer with soda and chips on her shirt!

The Running Academic (3 months ago)
My first thoughts are, why am I experiencing certain parts of this simulation/world such as hate for others, killing and so on? Why can’t it just be a consistently happy and good simulation/world? But then I think ‘simulation’ is just an easy way out of discovering our true meaning and an attempt to bypass a regression into old ways of seeing the world and life, but through an alteration of the language we use. It feels like most projections/hypothesis’s and so of our existence all reflect each other and at the same time deflect. It’s as if most people thinking/researching our existence/place here (earth), become increasingly confused and lost with the complexity of it all and choose to come up with conclusions that are hard to either agree or disagree with.

Muslims believe that God created all possibilities and then we choose which path to take
Steve Haag (3 months ago)
I think the two main choices, or sides of the same coin, or polarities, or the original duality is 1) Oneness/void/nothingness/potential, and 2) multiplicity - whatever breaks from #1. Maybe we breathe them in and out. We take turns liking multiplicity for its provocations and interactions, and then we like to return to nothingness for rest, relief, review, and next possibilities. Or simply to be nothing at all. The Bible seems to reflect this realm of multiplicity. It's everything out of Pandora's Box, all that the broken glass reflects, all the scattered pieces of Humpty Dumpty's great fall. It can all be combined and recombined endlessly, and made into very sophisticated characters and story lines. On and on. On this side, we're trying to make something of nothing. On that other side, it's just nothing. Both relieve the other. Consciousness itself seems to like riddles, contrasts, oppositions, territories, levels, galaxies, aliens, interdimensionals, weird surprising interrelationships, and expanding story lines. It's a hungry eater. Always looking for something new and intriguing to chomp on. Like what to become among everything else becoming, however unbecoming. Waves. Frequencies. We know it when we see it, and we like to fashion it into characters with characteristics. It's something to do. If not this range of dualities, some other. No matter the 4th of 5th or whatever dimension. It will have some duality. Some this and that. Observer and stuff observed. That's what consiousness does. It seeks other. Or it goes back to none other where there is only being, if it's aware of that at all.
Regina Odom (3 months ago)
There was a book written a long time ago by a Catholic priest called the God Game about someone who's computer came to life and he was in a sense God telling the characters what to do but they did not always listen to him. It was something to think about. I do not believe in a Supreme Being who tells me what to do. I do believe in reincarnation because I have memories of it. I believe there are Spirits who are on higher levels that help us learn and grow. But not the big Poobah in the sky. I think there could be many so called Gods and Goddesses who are called that but are just highly evolved beings who assist us. I also do not believe we are the only ones in the Universe. We have had too many sightings of space craft and aliens to not know this. I really think we come here with all the stuff we need inside of us and it up to us to work at it and to try to be better human beings and have compassion and learn to control our emotions. It is our emotions that sometimes get us in the most trouble and to know how to keep yourself centered and non reactive will bring you peace inside. I once read that we should examine if we are positive, negative or neutral about things. Most would say positive is best but really neutral is because you have no agenda for things and will not be hurt by others or how things unfold thereby being able to enjoy them more. It is not about lessons but experiences because a lesson implies we are wrong and we are not just having an experience. My thoughts on this thing called simulation. I agree it is an old idea with a new twist and new words to describe it.

The nature and origin of reality and consciencousness may never be fully understood. Actually I'd say we know very little about either. And religion should be a place to turn for answers, but Western religion tends to teach acceptance of dogma over an openminded discussion of the unknown. Then there's the wealth of human knowledge that has been destroyed or omitted by conquering peoples over the ages. How many times have we had to start over on the quest for understanding? I for one am fascinated by the unknown and look forward to new theories and discoveries.

Here's what we know for sure: if you're uptight about somebody else's sexuality...then that same issue is what you can't deal with within yourself. Very simple.
if this is a simulation than its also real cause something that got created in the "ultimate reality" will always be real doesnt matter how many layers of simulations we are already in cause even the simulations that we create in this one are real cause they are based in our "reality" there will be and can never be something that is ultimately simulated it will be always real cause its existing doesnt matter what we are how we work and who we are as long something is existing and there are conciouss beings to experience it it will be real and what we call reality if that makes any sense... i highly recommend a yt channel called FRANK YANG every video is worth watching dont get scared by his video titels but almost every video is 100 times deepeer than this and he went trough alot of bs trust me on that one

Nice to see someone from entertainment world has read some philosophy books , names like husserl , Kant , have already said thousands years ago all this “new age fake invention “ starting from zero again each generation do anyone notice any development since primordial Times and year 2018? Same Ego issues masked with different names , same trivial technological also human behaviors ,same brothers and sisters hate .... The law of attraction is true , so if the generations are not sufficiently educated what kind of world will this be in the future ? What is this non sense historical repeating ? Why the matrix which is undeniable?!?!? Experiencing is not justifying the matrix , Bad ego rebirth generation after generation is a proof ! No answers at the end because we are so limited !!!!

What if it's a simulation? Then try and make the most of it. In the end it's all about learning and gathering momentum to either get out of the simulation and into the real thing, or going up into a higher level of the simulation. It's all lessons, and you can learn in a classroom, in a field trip, alone with a book or in front of your computer, so why not in a simulation as well?

No we aren't in a simulation. Still, some kind of thing that could be described as a Matrix exist. And it is a mechanism, because the existence on all levels is a mechanims. In essence, the hen can only lay an egg from which only a chicken can come We wouldld have understood that long time ago if we wanted. On spiritual level these mechanisms can be changed. Basically, the spiritual and mental environment around us creates us to reflect the same environment. And later we continue to build the environment according to our values, which are formed by the environment itself... So, Matrix... A machine.
