Interesting Video i watched about reality, i think kind of along these lines so i thought i'd like to share it and see if any of you guys like it also.

Are our spirits and true selves trapped inside this physical realm and given an illusion by a program to distract us from a true reality outside of this physical realm... and we have to find out how to free ourselves?

Carl Jung is a favorite of mine, He says that through Dreams we see things and places and such things of fantasy and complexity, completely out of space and time.
And therefore postulates that at least in part there is a piece of our psyche that must exist beyond the physical.

Also a favourite

The late Bill Hicks said "Its just a ride"

So in conclusion, I know nothing. I'm confused but also feeling more at ease for some reason. But i'm positive as time moves forward more truths about our existence and the nature consciousness shall flower into something more for us to understand.

Straight up star and flag everything with Bill Hicks!!!

My Favorite matrix video:

"What is the best kind of slave to have? One who does not realize they are a slave! Obviously -- then they won't attempt to gain their freedom if they already think they are free. See how a slave system of this kind is created."

Just remember, no matter how many validations you have of one reality, it does not make any other reality less real.

They are all valid and all "real", independent of the number or quality of observers.

YES... That's actually my favorite part of the Game.

TightRope Janelle Monae B.o.B Lupe Fiasco

Whole song talks about it if you can see it. B.o.b's verse talks about his light body, and how it relates.. sacred geometry. But he says it sly like he does.

[Lupe Fiasco]
Greetings, welcome to the meeting of the minds
That be thinking all the time 'bout defeating all the blind
Following, swallowing, drinking of the time-
Honored traditions, of, keeping in a line
I prefer to figure eight and Mandelbrot

Rock all night, 'til they candles on my mantle stop
And it's paid programming on, every single channel watched
Televised revolutionaries on the chapel tops
Shouting, down at Babylonian accounting
Medieval mathematics keep us average in amounting
But I surpass that, I dropped out of they math class
I am, cause I thought, now my tightrope's like a sidewalk]


I'll watch the OP video in a second. I have a secret though. It's all one thing. I mean you don't have to worry about being "trapped" Everything matters if you want it too. It's important down here too. Or it's not.

Star for Bill Hicks.

I love the one George Carlin does about God...."because he loves you".

The metaphor of gaming and computers fit rather nicely into our own reality. Take the SIMS for instance, complete virtual worlds that are run behind the scenes but which holds together physics and which takes up a life of its own. In essence a lot of metaphysics can be explained this way: higher self = the gamer (before getting lost in the game), the spirit = the person emerged in the game (in between both realities) , body and brain = the actual identity and character of the game (identified with the illusion and subjected to its laws).

Wow starts off with a kick. Thanks for posting. Funny phillip k Dick 1977...

"I rather suspect that we live in a computer simulation. And the only way to tell is when a variable is changed."

This is gonna be good.
By the way Someone in that song I posted makes a Neo reference.

@post above me. You are right. And even a little bit further. Anyone who has meditated enough will at some point recognize that your body and something else can have separate thoughts.
You can keep looking down on the next layer up, until... You ARE. I call it Zooming out.

The riddle to figure it out is here: A Riddle and a Mystery from Hebrew

The mirror to the last DNA stop codon is the same pictograph after the Tav, representing the marker of the end. This is the 23rd letter of 22 Hebrew letters. The Ghah is in the Ayin (eye). I will only provide the elements of the mystery and riddle. I won't provide the answer. Every noticed my user avatar?

It really makes you wonder what the hell is going on doesn't it. I think the Buddha was the first to come out with the idea of a Matrix like existence.

Talking about the stuff of illusion etc. Doesn't Bill Hicks look like Alex Jones there?

I kinda see that. It would have been epic hearing hick's Jones impression haha.

"I've got the documents!"
"It says RIGHT here I can read it i their own papers.. They've got FEMA camps!!"

Joe Rogan does a pretty good one though.

Thing is the Matrix has a point. IS there a point to all this? Let's make a point.

No we're not living in the Matrix. No evidence suggests we are. This is just a re-purposed and over-exaggerated version of Descartes' Evil Demon argument. The argument presupposes substance dualism, which has almost thoroughly been abandoned.

Awesome post
Sorry about this long post, I was trying to keep it short.

This same message is in the bible, but covered in darkness. Like the presenter speaking of gnosis, who pits gnostic texts vs. the christian texts, often it is assumed that these are opposed to each other. What I say is that in the midst of the corruption of the texts, literally altered by the "lying pens of the scribes", or "spiritually" altered by the lying minds of the theologian, in the midst of this is the seed of truth, a meta-narrative pertaining to these very concepts.

In the midst of the garden stood two trees.

The Tree of Life; which is ONE

The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil; which is TWO, duality

Some have theorized that Evil is the absence of Good, or Darkness is the absence of Light. Lets take that concept and expand it, that evil is null… 0. If Evil is 0, we might say that Good is 1.

The Tree of knowledge of Good and Evil, eating its fruit is entering into a binary system, which is 1's and 0's.

What happened after Adam and Eve ate the fruit? They died, except they didn't right? But it says in that day you will die. They entered the realm of death.

1 Cor 15
20But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. 21For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, 24then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. 25For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be abolished is death.

The realm of the flesh is the realm of death. If you do a word study on flesh and spirit, you will see that flesh=death=adam, and spirit=life=christ.

The two trees are both in the midst of the garden, they occupy the same space. The Tree of knowledge (the word in the LXX version of Genesis 2 is gnosis) of good and evil, duality, the binary system is to be acquainted with, like Adam and eve were acquainted with each other, they knew each other, we are bound to this matrix of death. When we(adam, all are in adam/flesh) partook of the duality we were subject to death, the realm of death. Kicked out of the garden.

The other tree in the midst of the garden is the Tree of Life. Unity.

Proverbs 3
13≈How blessed is the man who finds wisdom
And the man who gains understanding.

14For her profit is better than the profit of silver
And her gain better than fine gold.

15She is more precious than jewels;
And nothing you desire compares with her.

16Long life is in her right hand;
In her left hand are riches and honor.

17Her ways are pleasant ways
And all her paths are peace.

18She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her,
And happy are all who hold her fast.

19The LORD by wisdom founded the earth,
By understanding He established the heavens.

20By His knowledge the deeps were broken up
And the skies drip with dew.

Death is likened to a matrix throughout the bible. Isaiah 25 speaks of the woven covering cast over all people, the veil of death. This veil is the same word used of the veil in the tabernacle, that was woven of Babylonian design (confusion/death) and had cherubim woven into it. These are representative of the 2 cherubim that were stationed (the word is tabernacled in Hebrew) at the entrance to the garden. That is what Adam and Eve saw as they left the garden, but they were looking at themselves, their new selves with the flesh garments they were given to live in this world (no animals were killed in the narrative). The cherubim also represent the foundations of the cosmos, or the 4 cardinal points, the story of the zodiac is in them (from Virgo to Leo is the meaning of the sphinx).

The guardian cherub who fell is not Satan but you and I. The king of babylon is our human collective mind that rules over this realm, the matrix or veil of death that is over our minds.

2 cor 3
15But to this day whenever Moses is read, a veil lies over their heart; 16but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit.


The apocalypse or Revelation, is the UN-veiling, removing the veil that lies over our minds. It has nothing to do with doom porn, nothing to do with an angry god coming and striking vengeance on puny mortals. That is the lying minds of the theologian, reading the book by the letter, looking at the outer covering, or husk thinking it is the seed.

Unless the seed falls to the ground and die, it will not bear much fruit.
The kingdom of heaven is like… a seed, a tree, a jewel

The kingdom of heaven is inside

All creation waits with eager longing for the unveiling of the Sons of God (see Galatians for the seed being Christ, and we are that seed) in hope that the creation will be set free from its bondage to corruption (death, disease) and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.

You said you are more "at ease for some reason". That's probably because you are seeing that there are other people with your same thought process. No matter what you believe or don't believe, that always helps.

We are are all of the dead from another place that seemed to suck. However it was just a managment problem that can be corrected. An image of the self is stored in a bubble of light and can be accessed with training. The key is that light contains information. There are four competing aspects of us that come to effect us. The chakras head heart gut and sac. They all have their own ressonance frequancy that can be accessed and each influence us. To get out of herre you must let your head guide your heart and sometimes you must access the crown chakra to get a handle on life.

Earth is just a copy of the place we left but to truely understand how you stand here you must know that most of what we have built here is not from this frequency and can be reset. What is left is just what we started with just a bunch of past histories that we try to piece together but fail because of the timelines of different parts of other planets being brought together in order to form the foundation. Of coarse there is much more to all this but in the end you really are not here at all.

Yeah the part about Gnostisism was interesting, I can see why if they believe that we are in a prison of flesh that everything material is therefore bad and a distraction from the world of spirit.

A lot of people have a same concepts but some interoperate these ideas differently through religion or science etc, same thing at the end.

Jung had a nice quote I liked however which I believe.

"Ideology is the true anti christ"

People who follow a principle and disregard other principles because they don't like it or its wrong are the people who are destroying the world.

This journey we all must take must be inward before we look out, or there will be much confusion. Searching for true self or Oneness is a unique journey.

Like another poster said though, "what you believe is real"
