I enjoy this forum, because free-thought is a bit more accepted... and I present this as an exercise in thought based upon Einstein's use of "thought
experiments"... for instance, while working on relativity he imagined himself as a photon traveling at the speed of light- not something I can really
wrap my head around... which is why the man is called a "genius". I based my "thought experiment" on ideas presented here on ATS, the show "Ancient
Aliens", science fiction, and my own spirituality. I tried to put myself in the place of an alien race and visualize how things may have happened...
this is what I conceptualized.
This is in no way an attempt to present a "working theory", nor is it in any way, shape, or form a presentation of some "cosmic theology" that I
subscribe to. It is merely a presentation of an idea
There is a race of beings in the cosmos. This race looks like “us”, but are very advanced. They occupy our known Universe. They are a spiritual,
intellectual and wise race. They are each born as a twin, one male- one female.. a yin and yang. They are nearly perfect, as they understand
perfection; knowing it can never be totally achieved, yet always advancing ever closer. They have mastered all aspects of time and space… however,
early parts of their development have been lost to time, in a manner of speaking. The written records exist, but the experiences long forgotten. At
some point, the “teachers” of this race devised an amazing instructional tool. A game of sorts…
Throughout their travels, they discovered a planet inhabited only by primitive life. It had deep oceans, large landmasses, and abundant natural
resources. It was perfect fit for their plan. A decision was made, and the planet was named “Arena”
. 13 of their best and brightest minds
are gathered in a conference to determine exactly how this “life simulation” will operate.
The first task the designers had was to allow relatively long periods of total immersion in the simulation, while allowing each of these
to end in a very short period of “real time”
… the benefits are obvious. Students in the simulation can absorb a
great deal of knowledge in a very short period of time… like finishing K thru 12 in an hour. College in an hour. Grad school in an hour… etc.
The next task was to make the simulation realistic. A back story, so to speak. The designers knew that their students were bright enough to see
through any flimsy plot lines… they also realized that their students, natural explorers, would find a way out of the simulation sooner or later...
a unique isolation protocol was devised. Arena
and its outlying solar system would be encased in a time-dilation bubble.
Using their advanced technology, the bubble was put in place. One year in the “real universe” now translated to many thousands of years passing
inside of the bubble. The bubble had other qualities as well… due to gravitational lensing anyone inside of the bubble would now see the universe as
if looking through a telescope in reverse. Neighboring star systems and galaxies, normally millions of miles apart, now seem to be millions of
light-years apart… an isolation by illusion on a grand scale.
This bubble also had the effect of allowing the primitive life on Arena
to die off on its own, without too much intervention (this race has a
prime directive of minimal interference)... in a matter of a few months in “real time”
. The game board, so to speak, was now set.
The rules for the Arena
simulation were crafted next...
It was realized very early on, that sending a student into the simulation had to occur as a biological process. They had to be “born” into the
simulation as a blank slate with no knowledge as to “why” they were there. This allowed students to experience the simulation with absolute
: from the time of entering Arena
, until “graduation”. The students would have to learn a lifetime of experience on their own,
with older students acting as guides through parenting, teaching, mentoring…
The “reality” of the game was accomplished by allowing the universe’s own laws to exist within the bubble. As above, so below.
The architects further realized that the game would seem really contrived to the students if millions of them suddenly showed up at once. They needed
Thousands initially volunteered with two basic goals: Live a native and somewhat animalistic life and procreate. This allowed the "beta testers" to
live in a manner well outside of their comfort zone and experience what their earliest ancestors experienced… pain, suffering, anguish.. as well as
wonderment, amazement and the thrill of new discovery… something that had been lost to them in their advancement. It also allowed students to begin
immersing themselves in the simulation as offspring of the beta testers… and so things began to proceed.
The 13 game architects now began to mold the plot of the simulation… they based the plot on the evolution of their own race through a time-span of
hundreds of thousand years. Students could now experience the roots of their early spirituality as well as the roots of their biological past. The
architects could travel in and out of the bubble, from time to time to move the plot along a manner relative to their own species development… yet,
it was also kept fluid so the students could learn from their own decisions.
Certain key points of the game’s development had been “scripted”- events that had to happen within the simulation so the student could relate
the experience to their own cultural and spiritual developments. Occasionally, the architects would enter the simulation as a deity… other times
they would enter as a prophet, guide, or master…
Civilization, religion, astronomy, written language, art, scientific concepts etc. were all introduced to the game at predetermined intervals.
Occasionally, certain gifted students were born into Arena
with a preordained mission… to spin the simulation… introducing new ideas into
the simulation based upon what they had learned as a civilization themselves.
The architects also enter Arena
from time to time, as observers... watching the progress of the simulation from high above. Some students are
sent as observers as well… living a life within the simulation solely as a recorder, who’s memories of life inside are not only retained by them,
but may be shared with others upon their return.
The students enter the game through an advanced soul transceiver of sorts. They are briefed and instructed before they enter the simulation and
understand the rules. How long each learning session may last, they understand, is often a combination of their own decisions within the game
effecting the probabilistic nature of the simulation, and what they are supposed to learn while there. They further understand that, in “real
their lesson will only take a short time to complete… but, within the bubble it would equate to an entire lifetime. The students enter
with their twin, yet each may have very different paths in the simulation... Other students will enter, many having shared connections
with others... they may meet in Arena
by design or by happenstance. It is part of the program...
