I fancy myself but can't get round to it.
I always day dream that I have the technology of zero point energy and gravity manipulation and the dream is always of how to get it to the worlds people. You know the majority of people not the controlling few.

We are all (our entire universe) exists in a petri dish as part of an experiment of some kindergartner in a higher plane/universe.

That IS silly. Space Lemurs, right? Nevar! ( I apologize to any lemurs I insulted)

As for me, silliest thing I ever did was get married to someone I knew far less than a year. Also proved to be the smartest, as my wife tends to keep me out of really serious trouble.

IDK, that "kindergartner" gave all and asked for nothing in return. This perfect place gave rise to my Wife and two Daughters, whom I'm allowed to love all I like of them.....I'll take it and be grateful.

Probably not the most but the following are up there being close:

Got to be this: What if David Icke is right?

About the R word?

Would be downright scary. Some of those things are said to be inter dimensional traveling too. On top of that the said aliens that traveling that way.

I have another one!

When I was 4, and I was attending pre-K or nursery school, we were working at something and something messed up and I exclaimed "Jesus!" because i'd heard adults say that when something went wrong. It wasn't too loud, but a little girl nearby heard me and put up her hand and told the teacher - "HE SAID JESUS!" in response to which I was duly scolded (for what I really had no idea) and told not to say that again, which was fine by me. However, the same little girl with an impish grin, asked me to tell her again what I said, but I said I couldn't say it, but she pleaded with me to say it just once more, so I went ahead and said it (maybe I was being seduced), quietly, "Jesus", immediately upon which she blurted out - "TEACHER TEACHER, HE SAID IT AGAIN!", upon which the teacher warned me, in no uncertain terms that if I said it one more time, I'd be in big trouble. So that was that. But lo and behold, doesn't this cunning little vixen not come back to me, now whispering in my ear (maybe this was her way of liking me, who knows with little kids), "please tell me just once more, don't say it out loud, just whisper it in my ear", and somehow I was taken in, since we were only talking about a whisper and I wouldn't be saying it out loud, so I leaned in and whispered in her ear ever so quietly, "Jesus".. well you can guess what happened next.

"Teacher, teacher, he said it AGAIN!" He said JESUS!" (she could blurt it out as loud as she wanted without any recrimination whatsoever!).

I was then made to stand in and face the corner of the room for the rest of the time get this, with a dunce cap on my head, like one of those orange highway cones but not as thick or heavy.

Now if that wasn't bad enough, that same day, while on the way back home to the nearby apartment buildings, a girl (not sure if it was the same one, but it probably was) pointed out that my shirt was on inside out, so with some embarrassment I took it off, turned it rightside out and put it back on again, and then the strangest thing happened, maybe it was the eye-opening quality to the days events amid all the embarrassment, but I just stopped at that point, and I turned and looked around at the sky, the grass, the tall apartment buildings and I said to myself - "Some day I will be an old man, and I will look back and remember this day, this moment, for the rest of my life" and lo and behold isn't that my very first memory.

Fastforward a bit, my father, who was a taxi driver for a while, gets "the call" to go into Ministry, and he goes back to University, gets his MDiv and does just that, resulting in me living out the rest of my childhood in the church's house called a "manse" of a few different "charges" or church locations. But what's more, my mother, having been a nurse for many years, also in the mental health profession, she also becomes an ordained Minister, so now I'm sandwiched, cornered, with the church on both sides of me and a double PK (preachers kid). What a predicament of sorts.. and it's not easy. And don't worry they were very liberal and I stopped even going to church as a teenager the moment that I didn't have to any more.

But it has it's influence where it might said that what you resist, persists.

My ridiculous absurdity seems to involve a "churchy" dimension that might even have originated on that fateful day, and Jesus, well Jesus is still just alright with me, and there's absolutely no reason whatsoever to face a little person in the corner and force them to wear a dunce cap for saying or even for whispering, his name, provided that it's not in vain, which I don't do (I guess i learned my lesson well).

Thus, my signature below represents my attempt to get out of the corner and get the dunce cap off my head, even though in the final analysis as it turns out, I and others who's lives I've touched owe that mischievous little girl and mean teacher a big favor, because Jesus is the best part of who I really am.

So i was four and my eyes were opened for the first time because I hit my thumb and said the Lord name in vain while having to reverse my shirt to the teasing of other children, and boy don't I get the last laugh and all the treasure!

And in my job I'm a fisher of men as a recruiter.

It's all connected.

I'll bet there are burly men out there right now driving giant construction equipment in huge pits and excavations simply because they didn't get a certain Tonka Toy for Christmas.

Life, and God works in very mysterious ways..

Best regards,

If I answer this I will get another 500 points deducted.....

Hah! Was thinking the same thing.

"I once considered _____ a ____ with a _____ while a bunch of _____ totally _______ on film but my ______ was totally ____ so I decided not to. Jesus ____ Christ, that would have been _____ awesome".

He said JESUS!

As a gamer, there has been a recurring question that has often popped into my head. This is sort of along the simulated universe theory with a twist I suppose.

What if the characters we play as in video games actually exist on some level in reality? Of course it wouldn't be in this "reality," but some alternate planes of existence.

What if we're controlling those characters, and they just think their actions and decisions are their "own" but they're actually being controlled by us? I know it's a weird idea, but I find it entertaining. Of course all of that leads to the question, if we're controlling those characters, who's controlling us? Are our thoughts, actions and decisions really our own?

Is that "absurd" enough?

That's brilliant imho.

And there is modern scientific evidence to suggest that if that frame of reference is fundamentally true when seriously considered; that the one who chooses, until the choice is made, resides in another, non-local, and thus in a timeless and spaceless domain, above the firmament so to speak, where even the physical brain-mind is a non-local quantum holographic transmitter and receiver, interacting with the bedrock of reality at it's most fundamental level in the zero point field via microtubules in the brain, we can quickly discover that it's basically true in the field of self knowledge and awareness. That this "grokking" raises a certain mirth and charm, both in its apparent absurdity, and obvious truth (we are not a thing) only adds to the credibility of the argument that we are not the characters we play, but indeed that we play them from a higher dimension. We may play them in the world but we, our most essential self, are not of this world.

The key is not to be played but to play, and for all the right reasons without taking the personality or the character, the one who's choosing too too seriously, while at another level taking God and our part of God infinitely more seriously. That leads to authenticity, charm, and a very high degree of charisma - which again, only further validates its fundamental truth, however "absurd" it might have appeared at first glance.

This is precisely the kind of thing that I was hoping to elicit with this thread. Thank you so much for your contribution to the discussion. If I was a mod I would have given you an applause, a single star just doesn't adequately express it.

If we mistake ourselves with the character that we are playing, then we are both asleep and, what's even worse, inauthentic!, but when we know that that's not who and what we really are, then we are awakened and God-realized at least to a degree, and in that space can only laugh at who we once took ourselves to be and who everyone else thinks they are and how we relate on the shared ground of all being and becoming (sounds like work for the sake of love).

It leads directly to a basis of what I call the humor of the knowledge of true understanding, which again, adds still further credibility to the fundamental premise and thus it rings the bell even throughout all the spheres, that this may be our true condition in the grand scheme of things whether we like and are aware of it or not, but it all ripples out across and back again, call it an acausal connecting principal between mind and matter that liberates us from all that is foolish and nonsensical where we at one time took ourselves by far too seriously but for all the WRONG reasons, leaving us terribly unhappy, and unsatisfied. lol.
