I got to thinking today...

What if that's what is going on? What if the real, authentic you is walking through a mall and sees a sign that advertises living an entire lifetime in only 5 minutes of real-world time? Curious, you decide to try it out. You are given a set of parameters to pick from and told that you will ultimately control the life you're about to live despite having input certain design characteristics.

I mean, who's to say any of you are real and not just constructs of my reality program? How do you know I'm not a part of your own program?

Perhaps this is why when we dream it's always different. As we dream, we are going into a dream within a dream and things become more disjointed.

Ultimately, I think what we have going on are an infinite number of simulations within simulations. You can't ever really "wake up" to the "real you" because it's just another simulation inside of another.

I also get the sinking feeling that reality itself is an organism, necessarily unknowable. We're a part of this organism, like a finger is to a hand or a hair is to a body. We're from the same, but not the same. We are connected but also independent.

As you can tell I'm a little bored today and letting my mind wander. I feel it's good from time to time to ponder such things, I think it helps keep the mind plastic and malleable. Consider it a thought exercise!

How could a finger on a hand reproduce and make another finger? I understand the point you are trying to make but the comparisons you made didn't really make sense to me...

I don't think people would have emotions, open thoughts/actions and many more things in life if we were just simulations...I think the premise is interesting living a life in 5 minutes but do you really believe that is what life as we know it is? Or is that just something you see happening in the future?

I always pictured the universe as being inside of a person...Say God, we are in his brain, cells working together to keep the brain active...Being there are many correlations between our universe and the human brain, that got me thinking...What if we are all a real life part (organisms/cells) of God's brain? Interesting getting the mind going and nobody is sure what the truth is but cool to think about either way!

Wasn't that like an episode from Star trek, where Picard had to do that? I vaguely remember that.

To answer your question about the finger. Bimolecular cell regeneration. Yet, I don't believe humans have that capability; that I'm aware of. If we were just a figment of Gods imagination, who's imagination is God a figment of ?

All I can say is that I'd tell my wife to go shop around Macy's while I go check out this "Virtual Life" store. I wonder if they'd offer you a massage during the simulation.

I love brain stretching - this thought seems to be a tangent from concepts of the Matrix and even Total Recall, though different... it's really fun to think about.

Thanks for being bored today.

Ever have that dream when you where very young about something that is very colossal yet very minuscule? Or ever see that old black and white movie "The incredible shrinking man"? How at the end of the movie he is talking and wonders how small he will shrink into infinity? What is the smallest thing we know of now? The quark? Look at the photo's you provided with the brain cells and the universe? What is the absolute smallest in the microverse and what is the largest in the universe? We are talking major quantitative infinities here. So who's to say we are not a part in a grand scheme of some kind of a simulation or a part of a master being?

Thanks for the laugh. Ha-ha.

Fascinating picture of a brain cell and the universe. All I know is that lately, I seem to be constructing my reality. In other words, things that I am thinking about or imagining, seem to be appearing out of nowhere. From wondering, I wonder what it's like to ride a Mini Cooper. A few weeks later, a carpool partner (there's three of us and we just started carpooling a week ago, so I had no clue this person even owned one) shows up with his car, a Mini Cooper and I get to ride in it. Little things like that, just random coincidences seem to be happening.

Get's me thinking.. is something controlling my reality?

Just because something looks similar does not mean it is the same.

Doesn't mean if something is the same that it can't look completely different either.

Yes, reliance on appearances alone is fraught with issues.

And why not? it seems to work with biometrics.

Fingerprints and snowflakes. There is no two the same. But yet both can be similar.

Much of 'magic' is the belief that manipulating the symbol manipulates the object.

Scale is real and means that similar appearing things may actually have no commonality at all.

As I posted in another thread, waving around a blue piece of paper does not give you power to control the sky (an absurd comparison, itself).

Unfortunately, too many people do not see the difference, applying an uncritical belief to their view of reality.

then once your inside the alternate life program, whos to say you dont then stumble upon another alternate life reality program, who knows how many alternate reality programs deep this goes, or perhaps as they say, its turtles all the way down.....

Infinite number of simulations like an infinite number of possible emotional responses? Like how the video simulated humor and the subtitles reveal what the Architect was really thinking...
