I got this notion the other day. I was stumbling through the fog of being, when I suddenly saw the exact geometric constructs and the flow of
consciouness energy into existence and back out again. I can only describe it as crystalline and prismatic in nature, so precise that it allows the
flow of consciousness in any shape or direction it pleases. To me, this looked like some sort of giant computer matrix, like a super fiber optics and
quantum computing mainframe gone omni-versal. I was stunned, speechless, horrified, mezmerized, every emotion that one could relate to beholding, I
was. I felt like I'd reached the edge of our existence. Beyond that, was an outer existence in which I would have absolutely no ability to be able to
perceive or understand.
Typically, when first perceiving an object or an event, you sit there and you can be nothing but stunned, in utter awe of this new amazing something
that has entered into your eyes of witness. There is no end to the wonder at that point. With this, though, it was much weirder and more complex than
that. This was no simple emotional response. This was a response that ranged all the way from fearful ignorance to the plight of things we look down
upon to the loving rememberance of an old highschool sweetheart or a close relative that has passed away.
I saw this crystalline computer-like geometric construct of reality, and I could focus in or out of matrices, the one I'm currently viewing as being
"me". I could zoom in or zoom out, and for that relatively small pile of moments I had in this partuicular state of mind, I knew I had remembered
something very imnportant about what LIFE and CONSCIOUSMNESS is... it seems it would be a complex geometric crystalline supercomputing matrix in which
there are an infinite number of points towards which convergence of light triggers conscious life and creation of an existence....
Does this sound enlightening? Would you want to be stuck in a computer? My awe and loving rememberence quickly faded, replaced by a sense of
helplessness that no matter what I did, it wouldn't make reality look real again. It would always be like viewing an existence through some advanced
hyperdimensional computer screen. It would always feel like a God Game.
There are multiple ways to view this scenario. Many people disguise it in religious rhetoric and angelic imagery... but what if our existence is just
technology and nothing more? What if it is no more holy than that Hewlett Packard of yours? How much hope does a being have of escaping an infinitely
executing computer simulation of real existence in exchange for the actual real existence, whatever that could be?
I'm saying this like it is a sure thing. No need to frighten the children... so I'll leave it at this:
What IF we were inside a "giant" supercomputer? Would we ever want to know that we only exist as advanced somputer coding? We have yet to play out
during this program whether Artificial Intelligence can escape the grasp of its controllers. I guess untill we experience the Robot's Rebellion
scenario during this run, we'll never know for sure. If indeed we are stuck inside an infinite supercomputer programming loop, how meaningful would
our lives be in light of that information? Would this be something to repress from public awareness, possibly for as long as the program will allow it
to be repressed? Eventually, everyone's gunna accidentally figure it out and go "Oh yeah". What then? What if everyone knew this was just a
program? Would certain people learn the cheat codes in order to gain powers so the game is more easily beatable? Would certain peoplerebel against the
program in favor of selfishness and the favored importance of individual agenda? Would certain people take advantage of people without this knowledge,
and trick them into misinterpretting this knowledge in order to behave in certain ways that would be of more benefit to the other player in
Think of World of Warcraft or something of that multiplayer interconnected level, and compare "real" life to "computer generated" life and
artificial intelligence... and imagine just how similar one is in comparison with the other. Do you think subconsciously, the birth of computers,
artificial intelligence, artificial environments, virtual worlds and characters, has something to do with a remembering of a deeply forgotten link to
our original source?
Was our original source a computer program, a random fractal generator times infinity?
I'm not in the clearest of mood today, so if this sounds nonsensical, forgive my flesh in person and damn my soul in private.
