Just a short post to recommend a couple movies that relates to what we are discussing in this topic, which I found interesting and enjoyed myself.
Jacob's Ladder (after death scenario)
What Dreams may come (after death and good examples on various astral planes)
The Nines ("God"/"Creator" "lost" within his own creation - somewhat along decoder404's previous speculations.)
I also watched "The Men who stare at Goats" yesterday, a funny twist based on the real governmental involvement and experiments with the paranormal
and psychic powers to be used in warfare etc.
Thanks for your recommendations Maggador! I did not see any of them yet but will likely do so in the future. I can also add some which deal with
"virtual reality" or us operating avatars:
Avalon (director Mamoru Oshii)
Nirvana (director Gabriele Salvatores)
The Thirteenth Floor
The Truman Show
They Live (this movie is not on virtual reality or avatars but on aliens)
There are many more TV series, articles, games, philosophers etc. which also deal with this concept. For more information check out the "external
links" at the bottom of this wikipedia site:
Simulated reality (Wikipedia)
I was convinced that we live in a "virtual reality" before I read any of Maggadors' posts. I am still convinced that we live in a "virtual
reality", but I always wondered what happens right after death, after this life.
For a few years, I simply assumed that humans directly return to the source after death and then enter other creations, other "games". I thought
that alien encounters, secret societies, religions etc. were just components of our creation, of our "game" in order to "entertain" us. I did not
think that such components would have any relevancy after death. During this short time and because of that, I lived life pretty worriless but I
always felt that this after-death-scenario is "too gullible". Sometimes, I worried that humans are "stuck in complexity", stuck in complex worlds,
or I worried of what the source is capable of, of what we are capable of if we exist infinitely anyway.
Now, I believe I thought too gullible concerning directly returning to the source after death.
Reading information on reincarnation, demons, aliens etc. and especially moksha, samsara, brahman, karma and peoples' astral experiences like in this
thread, I become more and more convinced that there is much more going on - unfortunately.
I want to see for myself if the prison is real.
I tend to believe that Maggador is truthful, because he often says to not blindly believe him but rather to find out truth for yourself. Furthermore,
I personally cannot think of someone telling someone else any higher truth than to strive for oneness or to strive for your true being or to strive
for "Brahman". Look "Brahman" up in the link below! In my opinion "Brahman" provides an accurate understanding of god.
I hope that we - the ones who want to escape - will find ourselves in better situations one day, outside of the trap system; and enjoy better
creations which are not so absurd, strange and pointless as this energy sucking trap. There is no need to compete with and to be attached to this
limited energy as the godsource could provide for enough of it. Being trapped after death for an undetermined time - what an absurdity of infinity.
Let us avoid reincarnation and achieve moksha!
Maggador is right when he says to live in peace and harmony with each other. He is right, when he says that everything and every being eventually
returns to oneness.
I wish all of you all the best!
