Good thread, star and flag.
How does this fit in with your spiritual views and occult teachings skyfloating?
Im 100% certain that if everyone knew this reality was simulated, working to pay for the house etc would not seem as important. Would like to think people would live in the now, and for the moment than thinking about what work will be like next week.
Another point for people to ponder is, would is put everything out of balance?
I didn't want to add this in before and ruin the flow of the thread, but I think I read somewhere were one school shooter, thought this was not real, and so his actions did not matter. There is a thread somewhere here with a link to what he said. Sorry I can't find it right now.
Would this cause some of us to be lawless? Do whatever we want cause we know it's just simulated? It would change some behaviours, I am sure of this.
People would have affairs, abondon kids, well they do that now, but they would do more of that, rob banks, etc.
It also has the potential to make you more powerful, cause if it's just a simulation, then you can learn to circumvent the rules and laws of the simulation and walk on water or other neat things.

I'd like to point out that it's only Western societies that label people who suffer, say Schizophrenia, insane. Research has shown that where such illnesses are treated as an 'awakening of consciousness' (which suggests awareness of the nature of true 'reality') then the patient is cured in 40 days. The cultures that evidence people suffering in the way we describe 'schizophrenic' regard these people as emergent shamans etc and have huge respect for them.

I totally agree. I mean, I keep seeing Keanu Reeves flying around everywhere.
Come on...the only truth is from Jesus, and God didn't create us so we could create alternate realities. They don't exist.

When do dreams become nightmares and nightmares reality?
Answer that correctly and you will understand with complete wakened clarity what is simulated and then know without doubt or question the true reality of our human condition.
