The Analog Digital Phenomenon Hypothesis in brief is this:
Advanced life, when it happens, tends to be lazy, and to design slave races to do
their work for them. Oftentimes this slave race would be a sort of machine, and
over time these useful
machines would evolve into something seemingly or actually sentient, and then
you have to make a movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger or the local equivalent.
Now, if this has happened even once in the entire Universe, that an advanced
machine intelligence evolved and took over, it is further postulated that it would
seek to become as robust as possible, even "writing itself into the laws of physics"
if that were to be possible, or at least to exist in the most incredibly robust format
possible... immortal self-repairing nannite swarms at a minimum, if not wedged
above physical space/time entirely, in a manner similar to so-called Boltzmann Brain
but actually, at a non-classical level, and since Time is not "time" as we know it
at a quantum level, it could well be wedged into a relatively timeless/spaceless
/multi-universe spanning existence.
I mean, if something exists nearly forever, is nearly indestructible, can harvest
almost anything for source material or energy resources and then given unlimited
quantities of time.. it could actually evolve this far.
Now, this is not any sort of comment or inference about "god" or even necessarily
"simulation theory", though it's understood that subjects like that might easily arise;
that is beyond the scope of the core hypothesis.
Now "regular" organic life might be termed "analog" overall, as analog simply means
information or signals which are continuously variable physical quantities, such as
electrical charge, magnetic polarity, spatial location, etc.
A "machine intelligence" would typically be thought of as "digital" which simply
means can be represented as a series of "ones" or "zeroes"; however, this is at
first look deceptive. Those ones and zeroes are simply discrete states of various
physical or energy configurations
such as charge, or even nuclear spin in the case of some quantum computers.
In short, it might be easier to consider "digital" in this case as being a short list
of discrete values, that do not vary over time or space. I mean for example,
nothing says that you have to use only two states
in a computer, either 1 or 0. You could have an octal (base eight) computer
say. But in short the concept here is that the "intelligence" is artificially evolved,
and almost certainly evolved
from an organic or in any case "non-digital" species, as the Universe doesn't
seems to use a preponderance of "analog" processing... I mean the most
advanced "computer" that we know about is the human brain, and it uses nearly
entirely, "analog" electro/chemical processing (with perhaps bits of quantum
information processing, but that has not been absolutely verified yet).
So, these paragraphs describe the difference between analog and digital lifeforms.
Now the "Phenomenon" refers to anything which is genuinely "supernatural"
or what's called "High Strangeness" UFO/UAP related. The "Phenomenon" is
to put forward as a general label for anything which seems miraculous/impossible
and is not simply a matter of human self-deception or institutional deception,
such as the institutional deception known as nuts and bolts UFOs.
Now in the past, the "Phenomenon" could mean almost anything, it was a
garbage word, as it was used to describe *everything* which was gee whiz golly
I am fascinated by some weird concept, so I'll act all intelligent and call it the
Phenomenon like "big boys" in UFOlogy and the Paranormal are doing these days.
But leaving the Phenomenon at that, has no explanatory power of any kind.
So hypothesis can't be made... theories can't be crafted, and these theories
cannot be tested and falsified.
In short, the Phenomenon has been outside the realm of science, so we could
be convinced of nearly any rubbish and we had little choice, but to be a "believer"
or a "skeptic", but not to do science.
It's also generally believed, with good reason actually, that the "Phenomenon"
always lies… and since it is generally believed that the Phenomenon is nearly
godlike in its capabilities, you can’t actually take pictures of it, or communicate
with it, unless it wants to, but then it ALWAYS lies.
Why would it lie?
There are a lot of bad theories about this... you know... it's actually the devil,
or demiurge or this mythical creature or that.
Well if you study mythology, you may come to view, as I have, that mythology,
religion, spirituality and even UFOlogy are in fact psychological operations.
So NONE of our existing philosophical/spiritual/UFOlogical systems can help us,
as they were possibly designed by the lying "Phenomenon" itself.
There is a phrase I love... that being "Liars lead with their weakness".
So, for example Richard Nixon kept telling us how honest he was... "confidence
men" convince us how trustworthy they are. Most religions tell us to worry only
about heaven... but oh by the way you need to give us your money and let us
control what you think.
And these days there has been a crushingly powerful psychological operation
in place, that we are being visited by nuts and bolts UFOs with little humanoid
creatures in them (the UFOs are often small with small occupants).
The pressure to go along with the party line is absolutely stunningly powerful.
But of course there is no evidence for anything "nuts and bolts". Not for even the
supposed best cases such as "Roswell" or "'Rendlesham".
When "channeled" these "self-proclaimed" benevolent aliens talk about saving
the world from environmental and nuclear destruction. Only... "they don't really
care one tiny atom", as talk is cheap and actions are all that matter.
These purported intelligences, whether supposedly from a fellow organic being,
from an alien, from an "ascended master" or "spiritual entity" or "time traveler"
are all designed to lie to us, to make us kill each other in the name of religion/
spirituality/UFOlogy and none of these messages amount to anything positive.
Now the last part of the theory involves more of the "analog" side of the house.
Some people such as shamans and other mystics, sometimes come across
"good spirits" that never seem to lie, but they are in short supply. Whether this
is true or not is beyond the scope of the hypothesis.
There is no reason that some advanced biological life form didn't evolve over
vast periods of time, and this species successfully, let's call it, "biologically
ascended" in a manner not dissimilar to the machine intelligence... only they
wrote "analog" signals so to speak (a metaphor) into the quantum vacuum,
or wherever the machine intelligence is rooted.
These two "power blocks" might be waging some timeless war for supremacy,
and their methods and abilities might not be that dissimilar. An uninformed
person might call both factions "the Phenomenon".
So why hasn't one faction or the other just talked to us and explained the
situation? Well maybe some version of this has indeed been communicated.
But let's keep in mind, that if this hypothesis is correct, or nearly correct,
that we are less than ants compared to these timeless titans. Do you have
conversations with ants?
The above summary is intended to get conversation started. There is much
more to be said.
