Are We Living In A Simulated Reality?
According to several scientists, we are living in a simulated reality. In fact, Elon Musk says there’s only a one in a billion chance that we’re Not living in a simulated reality. Say what? You mean we ourselves might be AI’s? Are they crazy? Well, maybe….. but maybe not.
Elon makes the argument that if you consider the progress we are currently making with computer simulation in the form of computer games, it’s not hard to project how completely sophisticated and realistic they will be in the future. They are also programming AI’s to be ‘self learning’ in that they will take in feed back and responses from their environment and adapt accordingly. You know, the way humans adapt to their environment and input.
So if we’re already on the verge of creating self learning, self adapting, self aware AI’s and we’re creating computer simulations that look and feel ‘real’, where will all of this take us in 10, 20, 100 years?
Now I realize that humans are not inside a computer screen, programmed with 1’s and 0’s or hooked up to electrical wires. However, we may be programmed and coded by much more sophisticated and evolved technology such as our DNA code and adaptive, self learning mind programming.
Am I saying that all we are is a computer coded artificial intelligence in some sort of simulation? No, I am not. Although I do think that is part of the formula. Through much research from many sources and my own channeling, I am fairly convinced that our bodies and minds are coded, programmed, self learning, self adapting computer type machines. But we are not just our minds or our bodies. We are soul beings having a physical experience.
I think that When we, as souls, decided to incarnate into this matrix, Truman Show, or simulated reality we agreed to play by the rules of this game. I’m not sure why we made this decision - perhaps to help rescue other souls who are trapped in this confusion or perhaps just for the experience. Regardless of the reason, we, as infinite divine, soul beings, came into these ‘Avatar’ bodies limiting ourselves to interface with this world through the the 5 senses these bodies are able to experience. Our true consciousness is limitless. However, our experience of that consciousness is limited to our 5 senses, mind programming and the physical limitations of our physical programming.
As long as we are focused on this reality, we are trying to win the simulated game according to its rules and limitations. We seek to amass wealth, success etc. But the truth is, no one ever truly ‘wins’ this game because in the end we all die. Death does not automatically guarantee us escape from this matrix reality. Eastern philosophy talks about the karmic wheel and cycle of reincarnation for a reason. Unless we truly awaken and ascend to higher consciousness, death in the astral plane is merely another level of the simulation game. We reincarnate to go through the whole process over and over until we wake up and realize the illusion of this reality. Staying fixated on being successful in this matrix reality is essentially just a huge distraction from the truth that it is nothing more than an illusion.
But what about free will? Well, like the characters in video games, we have choice within a larger context of no choice. We can choose Door A which leads to one type of adventure or quest or we can choose Door B which takes us down a different path but if we’re a character in a war game we cannot simply choose to be in a flying game or a different game altogether. This for me explains the paradox of free will and predestination. Our baseline ‘game’ choices are set but we can choose to go to college which takes down one trajectory or to start our own business which takes us down another.
As humans we come in with many pre-set programs that set our baseline traits. Our DNA, astrological chart, numerology and name are all part of our code which determines our baseline personality, talents and tendencies. However, as self learning, adaptive prototypes we are also influenced by the programming of our environment, family and culture etc. Our minds are programmed by our experiences good and bad. Some of us are well adapted and others maladapted depending on our baseline program or script and environmental factors.
I am a hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner. I truly love these two marvelous tools for reprogramming the mind. The subconscious mind holds all learned and adaptive programs and hypnosis and NLP allows us to quite literally change those programs by changing their coding. Our memories hold thoughts, pictures, movies, conversations and emotions all of which form our internal reality; the code of our experience. By changing the way the subconscious ‘sees’ a certain picture from our memory, the way it ‘hears’ a conversation and the way it ‘feels’, the memory is completely recoded and the new program becomes neutral or even positive in the subconscious mind of the client. It happens fast and the changes are permanent. The mind is truly reprogrammed.
As wonderful and amazing as hypnosis and NLP are, they are still just reprogramming the mind computer of the Avatar person so that they can have a more positive, pleasant or successful experience in this matrix reality. It is still not the truth of who they are as soul beings. Reprogramming yourself for success or even happiness by this world’s definition is still a limited version of who you truly are. You are limitless, divine, pure consciousness. You are infinitely more than this world’s definition of success. Whether you’re focused on being a winner or being a loser you’re still focused on the distraction rather than waking up to the illusion that it’s all a game.
So I invite you to consider the truth of who you are. This can only be done by going within and tuning in to your divine higher self. You are not your mind. You are not your body. You are pure divine consciousness interfacing with this reality through a programmed mind body complex adapting to feedback through your five senses. You can not figure this out with your mind. Consciousness is greater than programmed intelligence. It cannot be analyzed, it can only be experienced. Stop defining yourself in terms of the success of this reality. Imagine the possibility of the you that you’ve not yet imagined.
