Imagine living in a virtual reality ...
1) Try to imagine how it works to "be virtualized"
ACCORDING TO ME - I think we would be included in the virtual reality in a way very similar to the movie The Matrix or Avatar movie when the characters turn into aliens to empathize with their civilization ...
Our memories are "hidden" and we begin the life starting from the embryonic state ...
Then we will purchase new memories from a mind without memories
2) What happens when you "pull the plug" so when we die in virtual reality:
In the "true reality" we are still alive ... We ran out of time that we can spend being connected to virtual reality ... people that are still connected believe we died.
Once disconnected we get back to remember of what we experienced in "real life", and we feel as if we had simply turned off a game.
3) What about the "unborn" in virtual reality, ie, in the case of abortion (spontaneous or less):
I think in that case it means that a person is not 'able to "connect in an appropriate manner" and there was a problem with the development of his avatar. But they are all alive on the 'other side'.
4) What happens if one dies in "real life", according to you, and you can die in the "true reality"?
This to me is a mystery ... it could be that there are people who actually are "non-player"? boh
5) Is The time in the virtual reality flowing in the same way as that of the "true reality"?
I think not ... it's like in the games of the sims ... we seem to spend as avatars, live a whole life time, but in fact in the "true reality" a few hours have passed away ...
6) We are simulating historical events that actually occurred in the "true reality"?
It may be, and may not be. I think virtual reality is made up of an "eternal present" in which one can choose in which period of history live, and can also choose to simulate its real life or it can choose to live in an 'other family chosen by the computer according to the characters physicality / genetics more 'similar / complementary with the alternative family in question ...
Surely some historical event, perhaps all, were simulated in virtual reality, but in the "real reality" have happened a long time before ... probably in true reality we live in a' post-technological singularity was ...
7) What are dreams? What happens when we sleep?
I think it's possible that you can temporarily exit the virtual reality while we sleep in it, live in true reality, and who knows, maybe select data / events to download while back in virtual reality, viewable in the form of dreams, they probably have a reason to exist ... they are downloaded information in our brain that we need to understand and represent what we actually did in the true reality ( ? ), and can be any information ... I once dreamed of seeing a movie from 'beginning to end ... or maybe we can play in different virtual reality, who knows, and dreams are what's going on in parallel realities ...
there might not be only one virtual reality, maybe there are others that we can "play" at the same time ...

According to me to imagine a virtual reality we must "study" simulation games, such as sims city and sims and others ... even video games ...

To begin, I encourage you to format your OP to make it easier for the reader to understand. Second, if you haven't yet watched the 13th floor, I recommend you do; it's about simulated realities. I know you will like the movie. I often think about what you are describing in your OP, it's possible that we live in a virtual reality. One of my theories on life is that our future selves simulate this reality to study ourselves and life in general. It's an advanced technology cryogenic-stasis tank type of a bed you get inside in just like in he movie "Avatar" "The 13th Floor" or "The Matrix" and you go back in time and study life or for whatever reason you choose to, just like how we study fossils and such. It's a choice by your future self, some go back in time on earth some choose other dimensions and reality just like how you prefer to play The Sims over Diablo or other games. It may sound weird for some, but I can feel and sense my future self observing me, simulating me.

Now, we are connected at all times with our future selves so when one thinks do I have a free will? Do I make my choices or my future self? The answer is you are so compatible you are the same like a layer over another layer. There is no two, but one. If one is aware enough, they will catch the "observer" observing them. I do. I believe the higher-self is your future self, an evolved being who made the choice to experience this moment in time.

Dreams? I'm still working on figuring out it's ultimate place in relation to my theory. It's like free roam mode, but maybe simulation is within a simulation? Where it's easier for the simulation to download info from its host. I hope I'm making sense but I'm also trying to figure out dreams in general, because I KNOW there is much more than meets the eye. Death is waking up from the tank, finally being unplugged from the "matrix." What is on the other side remains a mystery for many including myself, but I'm hopefull and excited to unplug one day.

I didn't want to edit my other post, but something came into mind.

Perhaps the Elite know this entire virtual reality game and they are making their own moves. Life is an MMORPG. Those of you who don't know the genre of MMORPG, it's massive multiplayer role playing game on PC's. You create your your sex, looks, race and class...just like how the host creates its simulation. You and I. You gain XP(experience) in the game, just like in "real" life and level up. You gain skills, you do quests (working) for other people and basically nurture your character until the last level. Gee, sounds like life to me. Of course the game itself has it's own rules, same as life. Thing is, like I mentioned the Elite are completely aware of this that's why they don't give a fudge cake about us. It's really not about them either, it's just a game and they are playing their role as we are. I'm sure if they wanted to destroy us, they would have easily done it in the past. Create virus and kill us all. But, that's not their plan...I don't know what their plan is honestly and I don't even want to know...
This may sound far-fetched to some, but my creativity is getting the best of me today.

reply to post by Zagari

I like to think about this from time to time.

Let me add another "theory".
Maybe we have/invented religion as a way to communicate, without being fully aware, to our real self. A usual prayer might say "protect my loved ones, help me to yaddayadda, give me a sign, etc". If we had a real self in a different realm, it would seem we are praying to them, since they are in control. Also, this goes hand in hand with some people's belief that we are all a sliver of God.

it's fine to analogize all this as an MMO...

but you've left something out..


it's not a "sandbox" much as some people might want you to think that..

have you considered who done all the "coding"? ...and why?

not many people ever consider the nuts and bolts behind the GUI.

I think scientists are far too quick to point out the parrellells between the fundamental rules under which our universe is constructed and the way in which we model computer simulations.

As far as im concerned we create computer systems and virtual realities modeled on the laws of maths and physics the universe allows us to use, not the other way around.

Its all a bit the Earth is the center of the universe sort of thinking for me.

Having said that, I am curious to know why I DO NOT have a dinosaur as a pet, weird.

I'm surprised this thread didn't get much attention...The interesting threads gets swayed in the wind; doom porn and politics arouse people more I guess.

Its a hologram to pacify. We are a prison planet for revolutionists and the criminally insane.
