“We are in the darkness; nameless things with no memory—no knowledge of what went before, no understanding of what is now, no knowledge of what will be.
We live in a barrel, a dark depository where are kept the counterfeit, make-believe pieces of plaster and cloth, wrought in a distorted image of human life. But this added, hopeful note: perhaps they are unloved only for the moment. In the arms of children, there can be nothing but love. A clown, a tramp, a bagpipe player, a ballet dancer, and a Major. Tonight’s cast of players on the odd stage—known as—The Twilight Zone.” – Rod Serling
Sharing some words from a recent song I am enjoying a lot.
You are forever pure
You are forever true
And the dream of this world can never touch you
So give up your attachments
Give up your confusion
And fly to that space that is beyond all illusion
It is good to step into the unmanifest world of non-being at times away from the world of form. It takes will and intention. We need a break every now and then and need to remember what is Real and Illusion. Don’t forget to lose yourself every now and then and don’t get stuck in the dream too long.

This is an excellent discussion from a surprisingly diverse group of scientists about the possibility the Universe is a simulation. There are some interesting possible implications if we are. It’s probable we are, but based on our current observations unlikely.
Being a software developer myself, I found the most interesting part of the discussion the discovery of natural error correction codes in biological systems. This does not mean we are a simulation, but it does make a stronger case for a design to our biological systems possibly.
I like to wonder if I am real once a day. It keeps me sane and centered. The Universe is an amazing place.
nothing is free
the scales will
always be balanced
nothing handed to you
here and now
do the work
and find your
Self in the
Your desire knows you well
The serpent of wisdom
Dragon of temptation
A fair woman
All fine prizes
In a future
What can it all mean
I had a dream
For my self
I AM in it
