So you actually believe that?
Let's say a Sims
character 100 years from now (many updates later) looks out at the world and asks the
question, "Where did I come from?" Could that character wonder if it was being prompted in some way? Would it wonder if there was more than
where it lives? Here's the thing. I can play that Sims game
at will and on my own timeline. The characters live out a week in the hour that I play the game. I can then leave for a few hours and have the game
paused or I can even make time move more rapidly in the game. By my perspective, there world is simply information and energy being collapsed by a
processor and the memory location I see is the place I move my character.
To them, I am, or could be, their higher power. Let's move on to the future. Suppose we have one million more years to refine the game and we take a
step into that game for a bit. Of course, we would set a timer so our game would end at a set time and we would simply wake from the game. Would we
want to possess thought of both places at the same time? No. We would prefer to engage in the game while we have free time and leave our current
life. After the session of game play, we would then return having grown from the experience. If the game were like a good love story, we might be
able to experience real love. If we were unable to walk, we might experience a day of walking. Fulfillment would be assured for a time.
From ancient times, we have had a tradition that the Spirit within us is our source and part of us. This is called
Involution and Evolution of Spirit.
We are the droplets of water from the larger
ocean. Looking out across the universe, we see copies of our own existence in myriad shapes and designs. There is infinite energy and infinite
copies of our solar system. We are living because of water. There is no doubt that the sun has much to do with the hydrogen cycle of life and the
water that it produces. There is a connection.
There is no doubt that we are aware of ourselves and this awareness is possible. We are also aware that there are absolutes that show us what is good
and what is evil. We know the difference. We also see that we do not make our hair grow, the sun shine, our eyes see, or bodies grow, or any of the
other trillion things that must be for us to have life. We do two things. ONLY TWO! We think and we move. Other than this, we do none of it.
Clearly, we are baptized into water and we have the possibility to sink or swim. Clearly, there are two options of thought. We can choose to give
and receive (Good) or we can choose to take (Evil). The choices we make then reflect this example: If we smoke, we get cancer. Taking reward makes
us a thief and we die from the debt (Suffer as a result). We could go to the gym and live longer (Suffer forward for a reward). Suffering is the key
to life. We must earn the gift we then give to to others. We can also become a thief and take for ourselves. We can take so much that we create our
own hell on earth. We also have the power to raise a family and bring heaven to the lives of others.
Clearly, there is a purpose related to the water we occupy. As it turns out, there is a book that says that baptism (immersion into the water) is a
form of repentance that we do for something that came before. We are here to rise to new life. We can also sink to new depths.
You asked me a question and now I will answer it. YES! The OP video could be produced, yet we are aware of this happening other places as well.
It's like the UFO thing and all other parts of reality that are hidden, there is truth in everything. We simply lack the excluded middle.
As for the Sims character, he is all energy in time and space and produced by word (Programming).
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the
darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
