To say that our reality is simulated is really only to say that it is derived; A subset, nestling inside a more fundamental reality. This is not a new idea. Gurdjieff, the Armenian philosopher, spoke of our world (world 48) deriving from a more fundamental, overarching world (world 24) Bridging the Gap between the Two … Continue reading When i muse about the world as simulation
The theory that we are living in some sort of simulated reality has become scientifically, a relative orthodoxy now. We still appear to be very locked in by what we can conceive though. Many seem to envisage the ‘mother world’; The world from which our ‘simulated’ reality springs, as very much like our own. Technologically … Continue reading We should realise that, if our reality is simulated, then constraints and restrictions, like the maximum speed of light and space-time itself, are most likely just a set of parameters devised for the simulation.
We are living in a book; Reality is a linguistic construct! The merciless, yet illusory force that creaks into existence when the story proceeds from page to page, we have named ‘time’. The characters in the book struggle to conceive that their entire span of life; All it’s richness and intricacy, can be seen as … Continue reading We are living in a book; Reality is a linguistic construct!
An international group of researchers at the University of Cambridge are seeking to find out what really happens in the drowsy twilight zone that lies between waking and sleep. They are striving to find out how a conscious, controlled, waking person can turn into an unaware, dreaming, ‘sleeper.’ This “transition” usually lasts between five and … Continue reading Behind the wall of sleep
The transition between the worlds is often heralded by a luminous messenger. This is a place of overlap, neither this nor that. It is time outside of time, like Saturnalia, where normal rules do not apply. A door lies half open and the herald announces that something has changed. White rabbit, white stag or whichever … Continue reading I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date.
The ‘Avidians’ have been quietly evolving over thousands of generations in a computer world run by scientists at Michigan State University. Instead of DNA. this race of digital beings have computer code that is copied, not quite perfectly, every time they ‘breed’. The random copying errors create differences in their code which dictate how well, … Continue reading We are not alone! The ‘Avidians’ have been quietly evolving over thousands of generations.
