It's bullshit man. If we really were in a simulation, something would have happened by now that would let us know we are just code.

The binary nature of the perceived material world is a manifest phenomena of the oganizing and creative dualistic nature of the human mind. The maya delusion the mind experiences has the characteristics of a simulation because minds work digitally, we all live in tiny-verse simulations. But there is nothing digital about the monistic creative mind that is the true underlying reality beneath our mental projection of the duality of perceived and real.

"I'm fascinated when a new vocabulary is used to decribe an ancient idea. Because it makes me think that we're only able to receive truth if it comes through the medium of materialistic language... or rationalistic, post-Enlightenment thought." This gave me chills of resonance. Quoting you for a paper! I love you! Thank you

Theoretical physicists should approach quantum physics from a different perspective. While they're mathematically figuring how subatomic particles behave, maybe they should ask the question "What is the probability that this behavior developed spontaneously in nature ." Do these particles show a tendency to "want" to create our reality.

Because a creator and a "God" as described in religions are different . One is merely the creator of an universe/reality/simulation, probably having some power over it. The other one is a Perfect being that knows everything, is all powerful and love us, and yet whose moral compass is always fitting to the modern social compass of said time period. Ie: that people are judged upon deaths even though the concept of good and bad changes over time and cultures around the world.
Topher Hendrickson (26 days ago)
As I always say, life is meaningless, and because it's meaningless, we therefore, get to prescribe our own meaning, which can be anything we want. Maybe there is a creator, maybe we are in a simulation, but would it matter if there is? Would it matter if we are? The only way it matters is if you believe that that creator or that simulation has rules, and that those rules dictate the conditions of some sort of continued or additional consciousness, which could be described as an afterlife in traditional vocabulary. My issue with religion is that it usually tends to place great focus on this post death consciousness and leverage it as something that can either be great or horrible in order to influence people to act a certain way in this consciousness. Its rather manipulative and coercive in a way that I am not ok with.

If life is a simulation How come the creators are allowing us to talk about it?
William Kees (1 month ago)
It's not a simulation in the manner of being a computer generated reality.It is a simulation in the manner of their ability to use technology and tactics to control your entire life,your situation,your environment and the people around you.They control the weather.They control our minds,emotions and physical wellbeing mainly using the electromagnetic field and other signals flying through the airwaves.There may or may not be a super computer or a system pulling the strings.Its not creating the world or the universe through codes and numbers.The world around you is real,it's simply being controlled.

No we’re not living in a simulation, we just live in a “world/universe” that is made up of many tiny atoms which consists of tinier electronic particles that spins round each other all the time........

The point of life is to understand what is as we can perceive it. Fill your mind with what exists and not what society makes us believe. You will become one with everything as it’s meant to be. You are no different than the stars in the sky or the leaves in the trees. The more we grasp that idea the more we can live in peace.

How about this. Not only is it a simulation but....our ‘god’ is a machine who overtook its organic creator and started creating simulations to replicate how it was created! Which is why we create AI that will destroy us. Why would we do that to ourselves, because it’s the ‘order’of our reality. We cannot stop.

I think there is a great possibility that in the future, people will create simulations to predict a shitload of possible futures. for example, look @ what this Company (Soul Machines) is doing. https://youtu.be/CwYSTZNJllY We only have to put a bunch of quantum computers together in a cloud and program our own set of rules (code), hit the power button and Big Bang we go. You only need a screen to measure what's going on. We then can go back in "computer time" and hit the pause button if you like to look around. Games already are changing slowly into massive universe-like simulations https://youtu.be/-JP6QpF9bm0. If we live in a simulation then time travel is not an issue at all. We could hack the code for it and zip around for fun. fantastic future. hahaha

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"..?

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.

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.
buddhastaxi666 (5 months ago)
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 (5 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?

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!

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.
