Why does nobody know where they are from?
A "dead giveaway" that we may very well be in a simulated reality is the fact that nobody actually knows where they are from or who they were before birth.
I. THE INFINITE ONE = THE SOURCE = INTELLIGENT INFINITY
A. THE INFINITE ONE IS UNFOCUSED AND UNDIFFERENTIATED
QUESTION: Can you tell me the first known thing in creation?
RA: The first known thing in creation is infinity. (B1, S13, 129)
B. AWARENESS DAWNS
QUESTION: What is the next step?
RA: Infinity became aware. (B1, S13, 129)
II. FROM THE INFINITE ONE DESIRING TO EXPERIENCE ITSELF ARISES THE CREATOR
A. THE CREATOR CREATES (OUTER) SPACE
RA: As the Creator decides to experience Itself It generates into that plenum (nothingness that has the potential for being) full of the glory and the power of the One Infinite Creator which is manifest to your perceptions as space or outer space. (B4, S82, 65)
B. THE CREATOR DIVIDES INTO (OR CREATES) INDIVIDUALIZED PORTIONS OF ITSELF
RA: Step by step, the Creator becomes that which may know (or experience) Itself, and the portions of the Creator partake less purely in the power of the original word or thought. The creation itself is a form of consciousness which is unified.
THE CREATOR DOES NOT PROPERLY CREATE AS MUCH AS IT EXPERIENCES ITSELF. (B1, S1, 65)
III. THE CREATOR = THE FOCUSING OF INTELLIGENT INFINITY INTO INTELLIGENT ENERGY
RA: Awareness led to the focus of infinity into infinite energy. You have called this by various names, the most common being ‘logos’ or ‘love’. [Note: Elsewhere, love is also defined as the "second distortion of the Law of One".]. (B1, S13, 129)
RA: The Creator is the focusing of infinity as an aware conscious principle called intelligent infinity. (B1, S13, 129) (Note: When infinity focuses itself, then creation occurs.)
RA: Love may be seen as the type of energy of an extremely high order which causes intelligent energy to be formed from the potential of intelligent infinity in a particular way. All love emanates from the Oneness. (B2, S27, 8)

Maybe we are just AI from advanced beings and placed here on earth for their observations and maybe game playing. In my younger days, I once had a mild drug induced vision of being a chess piece on a massive playing board. Huge warlord type beings moved the pieces,(one being me). This vision has always stayed with me through my life and truely does give me a headache thinking about the possibility of it..
Although I have always felt I am here to learn lessons, and when death comes I will return to learn what I didn't get right.

A simulated universe seems likely, although I don't believe there's a "real" one at the top. More likely the original simulation created itself and it's all a big fractal now. Each simulation would share definitive similarities of the universe it's simulated in, hence fractal.

but I digress..... one of the reasons i like this site, is there are alot of members who aren't total morons who act like 12 year olds, and alot of members who think logically and have high IQs who usually shoot down these other idiots. So without even reading the responses to this post I'm guessing I'm not the first person to post with the response that no we don't live in a simulation, and things like this are purely fiction, thats why they appear in these things called MOVIES. These MOVIES aren't real. They're fake. So using them as a point in your argument, makes your argument look less likely....arguments need facts to back them up, not make believe.... whats sad is that the original poster actually thought listing fictitious movies as backing for his theory was a valid idea. Wow that in itself should help to illustrate the caliber of people who believe things like we are living in a simulated reality or I'm the one......yeah, whats even sadder is I've seen this argument on other posts as well.....sad very sad.....
