But we can't even explain how they created the pyramids or many of the ancient megaliths/monoliths.
I like to think that these 'primitives' understood our reality and the physical properties behind it a little better than we do in today's age. Maybe it was due to an advanced society that was all but destroyed and a remnant lived on, slowly losing their knowledge. Did that make them better off? It didn't appear that knowledge or raw determination preserved their reality very far.
I always like to ask, 'what is the goal'. Where or when will all of this knowledge make us better as humans? Has electronic technology really improved the overall experience of this reality for the majority of the population?

Sort of like it's a simulation and quantum weirdness is like error correction, "oh # he noticed this" change everything to make that make sense as one reality.. And then Reverbs gets dejavu as the only fleeting consequence.. Dejavu movies that can be fast forwarder like memories, and then I know the very near future, said out loud those around me see that I am remembering the future.. Hasn't happened in some time but it really nags at me. in other words extremely advanced simulation, that is not coming from another reality.. It is all there is.. So one would call it then reality, but reality that follows rules of simulation..
This is an interesting view. If our material system was in fact the base reality, and not a simulation, but did exhibit traits we would only expect in a simulation (ie: error correction with respect to conscious beings) why would you suppose things would be arranged this way? It seems like an unlikely way for the world to operate...
Don't you guys ever get that weird feeling, if you could just turn around quick enough you could catch the editing before it's real?
yeah all the time... I ask myself if there really are any planets at all outside of this solar system, or just the least necessary data modeling a macro object's effect on its parent star we would need to be shown based on our current means of observation, like we are getting Truman Showed' in some dome. I don't think this is the most likely answer, but it is interesting to entertain and I can't fully exclude it!
I think it is very important to entertain views that are not our own.

Yeah that's it... is nothing inherently unstable? Does it have this need to bifurcate endlessly into pairs of opposites? What causes it to do that at some times but not others? Like why was it able to go from nothing to a singularity of so many somethings only that one time at the big bang? Why don't we see similar behavior from other nothings out there? Why don't universes just spring up from empty space? Is the space of this universe too much of a something to be a nothing?
Where it comes to material and the immaterial things, it is no different then asking what's the difference between matter an energy?
