WARNING- The video contained here has some limited vulgarity in it and also shows digital video-game violence. If you are offended by such please do not watch. It also attempts to challenge the realness of your universe, so if that bothers you, move along. HUGS!

Hello ATS! I am MR MASK and some of you may know that I obsess about conspiracies and odd topics. My interests are not limited to any one subject, but one subject I adore more than most is the realness of reality.

I find the concept of a simulated reality to be overly thought provoking and tend to consider it very possible. I also enjoy wondering if our universe is actually a hologram projected from the outside of our universe as suggested by theoretical physicist Leonard Susskind and Nobel prize winner Gerard t Hooft

Now I am aware of many of the counter arguments to the arguments that support these ideas, and in no way am I 100% convinced that we are in a hologram or simulated reality. But the video I present here supports the idea of both and attempts to be a brief introduction to such theories.

In it I speak about many recent discoveries within mainstream science that suggest reality is not what most commonly believe. I do not present all evidence of such since I was limited to barely 8 minutes of talk-time, but I do try to nail a bunch of the most known discoveries dealing with the holographic model and the The Simulation Argument presented by Nick Bostrom in 2003.

The video is fast moving and has some vulgarity within it (I was raised wrong, sorry). It is a commentary placed over a single game-play of Modern Warfare 3 (A game my youtube channel is dedicated to).

I hope this video interests some of you and provokes at least a few of you to weigh and wonder the possibilities presented. In no way is this an end-all collection of information on these subjects, but I do hope it is a suitable introduction to it all.

Thanks for watching and I hope you comment here on what you thought.

Again, I admit there are strong arguments against what I am presenting and that I am aware of them. But I strongly lean towards the holographic principle and possible simulated reality theory over such arguments against.

I look forward to any and all polite discussions on these subjects, be them pro or con. And I welcome anyone thinking I am crazy or just "on to something".

Hope you enjoy. Here is the video!

That was the best presentation for the matrix theory i've ever heard. It was well presented with facts, dates, people, etc. Pretty much we can say that it's very likeley that we're a simulation.. But one problem I have is that you say we're a simulation caused by an advanced species, But what if the simulation was created in a differen't universe where species and planets, might not apply?

First I'd like to thank you for the kind review.

But then I'd like to clarify that Leonard Susskind and Gerard Hooft do not suspect or suggest reality is a "technological" hologram, but more of a natural forming one like the theoretical outer "skin" of a black hole. Neither of them say the Universe is a manmade or intelligence-made device or hologram.

But that don't say that it isn't.

Also, tho Nick Bostrom and Gates (and a bunch of others) suggest an intelligence programmed our simulation, there is nothing limiting the origins of that intelligence. I simply say advanced species within "a reality" because that is what they suggest or present.

I have my own speculations, but I am not a scientist, physicist or computer programmer. So I left my own speculations out of the video.

I personally assume if we are a created reality, that our creators/programmers are not from within our own realm of reality.

It would be like Pac-Man asking what ghost made his game? The blue one or the pink one?

THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!!! And thank you SO MUCH for giving it a good review.

There was plenty of other discoveries and theories I didn't have the room to add.

I don't have time to watch right now, but I will catch up a little later.
I must admit to not being real sharp on this matrix stuff but yesterday when I shoved a piece of this holographic glass under my thumb nail, it was not exactly "Sunday-go-to-meeting" words that came out of my mouth.
I don't know if there is any different reality than what I live in but....

I always find this subject fascinating. However, if the Universe is a simulation, what is the purpose and function of the simulation? Maybe its only purpose is just to see what happens.

Anyway, Philip K. Dick already beat these guys by 35 years.

I'd probably would have liked the video more however if the narration didn't make my ears cry.

lol- I can't imagine pretty words coming from any mouth (real or simulated) after having holographic glass shoved under its thumb!

If you ever do get to watching this, I'm curious what you think afterwards. Take your time and come back when reality allows.

PS-watch your thumbs!

Tho the ideas of a false reality go back hundreds and hundreds of years, Dick surly was ahead of his time and a fascinating character/author. Much of what he wrote became speculated or proven science in the years after his death.

I'm a lover of his work.

Also...I'm sorry my voice made you cry. I have to assume you mean my tone (its horrible, but I was born with it) and not the handful of vulgar words I used...since Philip K Dick was far more perverse and vulgar than anything I cold create for youtube.

Anyways, I did try to keep the swearing to a minimum in this one since I knew i'd share it here. Unfortunately I can't claim sainthood.

Anyways, if you DID mean the nasally sound of my odd voice, and I'm sure you did- Its both a curse and a blessing. Curse becuase that's how I really sound. Blessing because in music and art it has gotten me pretty far for a chump living in CT with no idea about anything. lol.

Hugs to you!

OH! And to try and answer that question...alls I can do is speculate. I've done much of that over the years. Here's some ideas I have in no order.

1) The universe wants to know itself. We are created to observe and know the universe.

2) A test or game to entertain or evaluate the players/participants on various levels.

3) A historian simulation for the programmers to observe.

4) A scientific model for the observers to observe for various reasons.

5) A fun reality to explore. Perhaps real reality is boring, or painful, or without wonder or confusion- and the simulation makers wanted to spend time in a place where things are a tad more fun or uncertain.

6) A punishment and/or a prison...that's right.

7) Perhaps you, me and everyone are unlimited in power, almost like Gods themselves. And before we are allowed our unlimited power, we are placed here to learn humility and control as mortals before we are given the keys to the God-car.

8) A social environment not unlike facebook or any sim-place for people to interact and enjoy each other in a place where reality and real identity doesn't get in the way.

The ideas are endless...and nobody can be sure either way. But those are just a few I have wondered fully or half-way.

Well it is not narration over porn but I still made it through!!

If a species is advanced enough to create a universal reality and the inhabitants of that reality do the same.

How many levels deep are we?

It may be a way to live forever in the blink of the original species eye.

I find this very fascinating and it seem's that we are on the verge of an evolutionary jump. First we have to identify and test (which im pretty sure there doing right as we speak) if we're are actually in a simulation or a hologram . And if all of these findings prove this theory then what exactly are we? If we're a simulation are we advanced lines of code wired to do one thing through out time? Like our universe is a movie. Even though you've never seen the movie before it's always going to have same ending because it was already created, coded and planned (fate). Or are we advanced AI living in a hologram and just a product of the observer seeing what happens..


Possible outcomes:

A. Our past, present, and future was coded and planned.

B. Our beggining is only coded and the observer let's nature take its course.

C. We are actually a soul taking a human form (like the movie avatar) through a virtual reality of vast complexity.

There's so many more possibilities... I just can't wait for scientists to find out and maybe then we can find away to study it. I've seen alot of talk about this from reknown scientists and the facts and evidence convinces me that this is a huge possibilite. I remember month's back people we're laughing at the Professor who said he found little segments of binearal code in our DNA. And now its actually come to light by scientists all over.
I'm glad to have been born in this time.

Do you think this could explain this aswell?

lol. DUDE I so tried to do the porn-commentary thing you asked for...but the lack of volunteers and anti-awesomeness of my charm sorta made that impossible.

BUT, you bring up the simulation-within-simulations theory. Another thing Nick Bostrom speaks overly about. He details the idea of simulations within simulations and states its very possible we are many layers deep within our simulation.

I also wonder the same. I'm glad that came quickly to your mind as well.

Thanks for watching and commenting. I appreciate it deeply! HUGS BRO!

Imagine humanity as an experiment... one that, at the moment, we are failing.

You are the being in a lab coat and under this microscope, you have this little planet packed with these curious little critters. But... they are getting smarter even if not more organized. They will eventually be looking back up at you through that lens, lol.

Well, here comes the artificial universe for the single purpose of keeping us (those happy little bugs) busy. The problem now is that they've gotten too smart at the same time they haven't evolved socially or culturally to a point to be able to handle all that ability.

In the corner, there is a trash receptacle. One foot on the toe-bat and the lid flips open and our little existence becomes trash for Monday disposal;.

Oh my. Carl Sagan would be soooo disappointed, lol.

I am also fascinated by this subject overly. And yes, FERMILAB is currently preparing tests to see if we are in a hologram. Particle astrophysicist Craig Hogan and others are right now building a holographic interferometer, or “holometer,” in an attempt to reveal the truth.


And if all of these findings prove this theory then what exactly are we? If we're a simulation are we advanced lines of code wired to do one thing through out time? Like our universe is a movie. Even though you've never seen the movie before it's always going to have same ending because it was already created, coded and planned (fate). Or are we advanced AI living in a hologram and just a product of the observer seeing what happens..

This can only be guessed at. Nick Bostrom believes if we are indeed in a simulation then it is highly more likely that we are not real entities using avatars inside our simulation, but instead coded A.I. His argument is that just like false realities are far more common in the universe as the one real one, that the number of false people in the universe also greatly outnumbers the real ones.

I am not convinced of that.



Possible outcomes:

A. Our past, present, and future was coded and planned.

B. Our beggining is only coded and the observer let's nature take its course.

C. We are actually a soul taking a human form (like the movie avatar) through a virtual reality of vast complexity.


All possible as far as I am concerned. If I was to go on gut instincts (and who knows, maybe those are genuine compasses to consider in such a simulation)- then I would guess that our simulated reality is open ended and allows more than one outcome, but still has all outcomes present in its code.

Again, just a hunch and I'm no scientist or philosopher.



There's so many more possibilities... I just can't wait for scientists to find out and maybe then we can find away to study it.


Another gut instinct I have is that we will indeed find the answers to all this within the near future. I personally think that we are all here to witness and learn the truth. Ya ya, some folks may call that nuts or whatever...but really, a movie has a "money-shot" ending and I am willing to lend some credence to the idea that our shared reality is going to have one as well.



I've seen alot of talk about this from reknown scientists and the facts and evidence convinces me that this is a huge possibilite. I remember month's back people we're laughing at the Professor who said he found little segments of binearal code in our DNA. And now its actually come to light by scientists all over.
I'm glad to have been born in this time.


The discovery reported about code found in our "junk DNA" kinda made me hopeful (but not overly) due to the fact that I have been telling people for the last 20 years that there could be a coded message from our creator(s) inside our DNA. I wouldn't bet the farm on the idea, but it does seem like a likely place to start looking for a message if one does exist.



Do you think this could explain this aswell?



Yes...I personally think the effects of the dual slit experiment has a lot to do with us living in a simulation. I also find that the refined "double blind dual slit experiment" goes even further to explain it. If you are unaware of the "double blind" (Or quantum eraser) version of this experiment, it is too long and complicated to explain here in one post...so I will link you.

Quantum Eraser version of the Dual Slit Experiment

What this enhanced version of the old experiment does is prove that the effect is caused by "observation" and not interference of the electron microscope (as many argue is the case still to this day, unaware of the refined experiment). It not only shows the observer causes reality to do wonky stuff, but it also shows that observation goes backwards in time to change results made in the past.

Meaning simply- the Universe seems to halt and wait for an observer before it makes a choice. Even going so far as traveling backwards in time to alter evidence and effects made prior to the observation.

Its pretty deep stuff conceptually, and can blow your mind if you try and grasp it. Heck, it blows the minds of quantum physicists, never mind laymen and sci-fi buffs like myself.



Thanks again for posting and thinking along! I love when people think outside of the box.

I can't even begin to say you are wrong lol. I won't even try.

But, there is a chance that you are one of the only "real" people within this reality, and as long as "you" maintain the "needed status" of a "winner", then the "losers" around you are nothing but simulated noise behind you.

There is a chance that you are here and I am not. There is a chance that I am here and you are not. Whoever is real bears the burden of "winning this thing".

So try not to let the weight of the human race smother your hope for getting the golden prize at the end.

HUGS and thank you so much for posting!

Hate to say I told you so, but all my threads have said this all along. Case in Point.

John 1

1 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[a] it.

Word is information and programming. Logos is a story teller. We are children being raised in an image. That image of God is not where you really are. Here is where you really are.

Matthew 18

10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.

It's an image like a mirror. Look at your own image and you see yourself, but you know it's not you.

1 Corinthians 13

11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

It's an image. The Bible continues to hold the higher axiom of truth. Science is the foolish child learning to see clearly.

It wasn't the tone that bothered me, it was the speed. A little bit of information overload, that's all. Anyway you have some points that I didn't think of that I need to ponder.

A couple of other things that I've seen thar deal with this subject matter are the movie, "The Thirteenth Floor" and the Playstation 2 game "Star Ocean: 'Til The End Of Time".

No need to say you told me so lol. I've been saying this for over 30 years. Don't waste time convincing me.

Anyways, tho I do not support or suggest your religious ideas on the matter, I will say that if we do indeed live in a simulation, there is reason to at least allow possibility of your God or anyone's God(s).

This is also spoken about in some of Nick Bostrom's interviews.

But I don't think you would like the idea he presents. That God(s) if they exist within this simulation are simply more false programmed avatars within reality. Just as real as Mario, or Zelda or any other programmed thing within the system.

I allow your God a probability (admitted a low one), but if we are a simulation I suggest your God may very well be as fake as the rest of us within this false reality.

Of course you won't agree...but then again, you trust faith where as I trust science.

We can't agree without beating the crap outta each other first...at least philosophically.

The good news is you forgive me...and I tolerate you...its our nature.

Hugs bro! I love you.

Hollywood has taken from these ideas more than once, its true. Thirteenth Floor (loosely based upon Simulacron-3 a novel by Daniel F. Galouye published in 1964.) does a great job of showing the Simulation Argument in a working condition. As does the Matrix trilogy. I am unaware of the video game you mention.

Ya, I hear ya on the speed of the video. It was actually planned for being 4 mins long and I was worried on how to fit in so much info. Hence why halfway through I had to reverse the vid and play it backwards to add in more info.

I'm sorry for the speed and quick delivery of names and dates. The video was created to serve as an intro to these ideas and nothing more. I have seen almost every video dealing with these concepts on the internet, and wanted to add to that small collection with something quick to the point and not overly long.

It was my hope to leave something on the internet that would spark interest in a short period of time, causing the viewer to seek out more info on the topics discussed.

Seeing how most vids on this stuff are either overly long and technical, or short and lacking in info- I hoped to hit a sweet spot with this action-packed nutty lil vid.

Again, thank you so much for watching and posting here.

HUGS!

I would assume the ultimate goal for the observer in a Simulated Universe experiment is to see whether it's subjects figure out whether or not they live in that very Simulated Universe.

I also think that is a possibility. I have said it many many times.

But Nick Bostrom has been quoted saying that figuring such a thing out may be the worst thing we could do. He says "the last thing we may want to do is hold up a sign towards the sky saying I know this is a simulation".

Cus then the simulators may turn us off lol.

He also says a few things on "what we should do if we think we are in a simulation". here are some things he suggests.

1) Be entertaining. The simulators may become amused by you, causing them to enter you in future simulations.

2) Do stuff, don't sit around. Active sims are probablly more likely to be favored by the simulators.

3) Ask for upgrades or things you want. Don't be bothersome in your demands, just kindly ask they happen and see if the simulation favors you and delivers.

I dunno how I feel on those matters...but I do try to do all three...simulation or no simulation.

Hugs.
