What if we are a simulation within a simulation within a simulation to infinity.


What if I created you to irritate the # out of me to keep me on track?

I renig. I thought you were itsnowagain.


If we are a triple simulation we wouldn't be aware of it, until we ceased to be a simulation. In which case we may awaken from our slumber into our own godhood, finally realizing we put ourselves here and our irritants throughout life were made up by us, to keep us on track or off track, however you may look at it.

Where and when do you think you will find that doorway?

Would't it be right where you always are? Here and now.

Even if this were a simulation, why would that negate the idea of free will?

Because what is appearing is everything...................and in that everything appears a person..............that person may have thoughts that make believe that they have the power......when really the entire appearance is the power.....it moves as one.

Would it really matter if this life was a simulation? Even if this reality is best described by the religious, that an invisible man in the sky created this world, wouldn't that still be a simulation?

Yes..............you will never 'find' it.
How can you find something if it is always present?

Imagine a wave seeking water.

Is that similar to the reductionist theory? It appears a lot of people are simply try to ditch their individuality and reemerge with the one or the whole. Basically, they want to go home. They carry all of the answers and really, there is not need to seek because each one of us carries the truth.

If we are simply trying to get back to the oneness, why are we here in the first place? If this world was so undesirable, why leave the womb to begin with?

I was waiting for someone to mention that.

I've contemplated that too. Then I considered the physicists who pose these questions and the information for our processing, why do they do it? Because, that's what Humans do, they Wonder about things, their need to know and understand how they got here and why, is great.

So my answer to you as to why it would matter? would be Human Curiosity.

Well it's a good idea to find out what is really going on...........if our assumptions and ideas about 'what is real' are wrong then life feels uncomfortable and then there will be a need to 'fit in'................but if you find out whats what and whats not then the confusion will lift away and there will be peace.............he who find peace within will find harmony without.

No one can get back to oneness...................twoness is not true.

The first time I encountered the Earth as a Hologram Scenario was in 2004, and ever since, i've been seeking answers. In fact I think the first time I sought them I was a child.

I had 3 specific Questions as a young child, that no one could or would answer. They were ..

1. Why am I here
2. Who is God, if he made us, who made Him?
3. And ironically, what is love?



i am not saying you should or should not but have you ever thought about these from the perspective(as in using the methods) of a psychonaut?

you know, an altered state?

personally i feel like many things have bee answered for me because of my journey's

thanks for the thread. i like to think about this #

I feel like i wasted 2 hours really.

I agree with everything Lisa Randall said.

And. Zohreh Davoudi has great legs.

So. Not really wasted.
