Just look at anything in a 3DS Max or Maya 3D view port (just google image 'Maya view port') and build a simple geometric shape, a sphere or something. Within that view port on your screen you can move the camera view away from that object indefinitely. The space around you only exists within that view port (dimension), and only when you change coordinates or move to another part of that space and observe it. The computer isn't going to render it until it needs to, because it would be a waste of energy to render anything that isn't being observed.

Consciousness would be the 'computer' that processes everything that exists. Anyone inside the view port is living in its own dimension, free to explore a universe without end. There are no walls or edges in that view port (universe). But at the same time, anyone outside of that computer monitor is outside of the particular space/time within that view port. The view port is encompassed within a greater reality 'outside' of it. Anyone in the greater reality or dimension is free to look in and observe without anything inside that view port being aware of it. And maybe even translate themselves within that view port in multiple senses of that word (express themselves in a different form or language they have modeled, move from one coordinate to another). I do think our universe as well as countless others are models, simulations. That's easy to realize when you look at a snowflake's natural geometry, the fact we can program bacteria with ones and zeros to do our bidding, and that the human zygote starts out as really nothing more than blatantly geometric shapes. It's all a very cleverly hidden design by the greater consciousness so we can experience 3 dimensional so called solidity, with cause and effect, action and reaction, consequences for our actions, laws of physics (math and programming), bodily death, and experiences that we otherwise wouldn't be able to experience in a reality that is nothing but consciousness and thought (non physical). We actually need these universe simulations for learning and experience.

Physics says your hand never touches a basketball, or anything else. It's only two invisible forces repelling each other. It's just a program. Where else is the only place you can do something like this? A simulation built by geometry and programming within your own PC. As silly as it sounds, a video game is the best way to describe it. Objects are programmed to not walk through other objects, to not fall through the floor, and physics are programmed into it so a barrel rolls down a hill and over uneven terrain just as it should in 'real' life. Interdimensional beings could so easily be looking in, observing, throwing in hints or strange messages that seem to appear out of thin air, using some means to traverse within our 'view port', etc.. It's so difficult and probably impossible for us to realize just how much of true reality we are unaware of. That is, until your bodily death, or unless you can do what Bob Monroe could do and Thomas Campbell can still do.

If the simulation theory is true, the universe wouldn't even need to have a shape to it. It would be like looking at 3DS Max or a game world and asking what the shape of the space is inside that view port or screen space where all your character models and objects exist. Within that dimension of space the objects would seem solid to whatever or who ever exists there, physical, if physics are applied to the scene. To us, it isn't physical at all. It's just programming, laws (physics), and geometry. What if that's the case with our universe and we just can't be on the outside looking in, so to speak, to recognize it from such a revealing perspective?

Of course these are just ideas and opinions. Chime in.

Once we are able to measure at the Planck scale we will be able to determine whether our universe is of a holographic nature and/or quite possibly a simulation.

Thats how quantam physics work. Waves collapse when being obererved bringing a possibility into existance. Its all a lot easier to comperhend if you move the universe into the mind. There is no evidence to suggest the universe exists outside the human mind. All stimulation exist in the brain..

...And this is a game that you created and became so enamored with that you went inside the very game that you created and now you are remembering, starting to remember who you really are.

It has been said since ancient times that the universe is a grand illusion, its nothing new. Scientists have been willfully ignorant of what the ancients said about the universe being a simulation.

I think we're in the mindscape/awareness of God, and light is the body of God and of the awareness of desire formed, and the forces, is the will/desire/Spirit of God and of what is love/what is just and Good. (One/a cycle.)

e.g. What is on the outside of our universe, or outside of the one that is outside of ours... etc. it goes into infinity - you have to keep pushing the boundary, or maybe there is no real boundary - nothing outside of awareness... and nothing only an expression of lack of sight.

e.g. Look at how we use the word nothing. Nothing is always expressed as the absence of awareness, or an expression which means we do not want to say what we're seeing/thinking/doing.

e.g. A person asks, "whatcha doing?" and another replies, "nothing". But they are not really doing nothing - they simply do not want to say/form/image it, or they cannot see its form, and so they say "nothing".

This is a little of Ancient Egyptian Philosophy as I understand it

The Cosmos is the thoughts of the Creator and an image of Him/Her

The Sun is an image of the Cosmos

Humanity is an image of the Sun

In other words the whole Universe is made and governed by thought ... and indeed it is through thought we can understand the Universe for everything is thought ...

I like this quote from Chewingonmushrooms


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).

Call me crazy, but this actually makes more sense than it all became out of nothing, with a giant explosion.

But, the question is who created this, and for what purpose? Is it for us to learn and experience things? If we look at it as a video game as you suggest it, does it mean that we as well have countless life's till we finish what has to be done, in order for us to get to another level? If so, what then?

Ahh, so many possibilities, my brain will explode...thanks for the food for my mind, looking forward to hearing other people's thoughts about this.
