I just want to say that delving into these deep concepts has taught me one thing. No matter what reality we currently reside in, we must accept that
as vast and creative (regardless of how good or bad) our current imagination can possibly be...everything is
real. Santa Clause is real, God
Almighty, Zeus, Ra and the tooth fairy are all real. Yeah they don't exist physically in our perspective of reality, but their essence and influence
are just as real as they would be if they did physically exist. The sooner humanity starts respecting the worlds differences of opinions, religions
and lifestyles...the sooner we can climb out of this spiritual slump and continue to progress as sentient beings.
We've all lived in chaos among one another for too long now, let's come together and unlock the secret of traversing the stars. It's out there, not
only because we imagined it to be, but simply because the only way our minds could imagine something like that in the first place is if somewhere deep
inside the answer to unlocking it exists. I know that might be too radical for some of you, but I stand by it. Just as life is sometimes logical and
rational, it also is illogical and irrational at the same time. The same goes for our imagination, obviously summoning a demon is way more illogical
than figuring out a way to manipulate wormholes for travel...but that's exactly why I stand by my point.
If something that does not exist in our reality now, but does in our imagination (especially something as sane and rational as discovering
inter-stellar travel)...then logically speaking, there must
be a way of making it become a reality. Otherwise our imaginations would not have
taken early sci-fi concepts to such specific mediums today in the modern world. For example in Iron Man, Tony Stark is portrayed playing with
seemingly futuristic computer programs, hardware and holographic software. Though the science behind it is still sound regardless, almost to the point
where anyone you ask would say that technology like that is probably 10-25 years away already.
My point is that while it will take time to create such realities, but to some degree they must be possible or else we shouldn't be able to imagine
them in the first place. Ask yourself, what is so bizarre that I cannot even IMAGINE it? Think for a moment, you can't right? It's impossible to think
of something beyond what your imagination is capable of...your mind sees darkness, there's nothing there to imagine.
This means your brain will not allow you to imagine something beyond what is capable of being created by the laws of the universe. Let me put it this
way, if I can imagine a humanoid being that can breathe fire (totally possible under the right circumstances, i mean come on all we have to do to get
close is spit alcohol at a flame lol) then that means somewhere in our physical universe there must
be some form of living entity that breathes
fire (whether conscious or not is irrelevant).
You can apply that to any type of imagination, and you'll see the pattern of logic that I see. If anything imaginable is possible within our universal
laws of nature, then so is the thought that we are all simulated intelligence. Maybe we are, and like it was stated in the beginning...if it is true,
than the system itself is the most intricate because it allows us to manipulate our perception of reality so easily without causing physical unrest
To wrap this up, I want to finish by saying that I appreciate this website so damn much...whenever I have an itch to expand my perceptions and put my
thoughts into words, I can count on ATS to deliver me unto topics such as this. It all started tonight for me because of Stephen Hawking's Grand
Design (on Netflix) and the topic of M-theory. I've already touched on quantum mechanics, theories and physics in the past...but M-theory really
stimulated my growing interest in alternate realities, universes etc etc.
Anyway, I'm done for tonight...thanks for reading! To those who read every word of my 2 posts, know that I love you for doing so even if you don't
agree with anything. The thought of you reading it all is enough for me to be happy, peace.
