Life is a Game, Play Well

Dean Radin and Tom Campbell are two amazing courageous physicists on the forefront of consciousness research. A revolution is under way. It could take 100 years, but Tom feels that the paradigm shift is here and underway. Science must accept the following based on the double slit and many other experiments providing empirical data that show:

1) Everything is information. Digital Physics is formally studying us as a simulation now. This is fringe, but tolerated. Tom feels this is undeniable and I feel this as well. This leads to the question, “Who is the programmer?” That terrifies materialists. They will do all they can to resist. But we are not just stuck in a dying material Universe.

2) Consciousness is the computer. What is the ‘Other’ beyond the simulation? Science is validating this ‘Other’ MUST exist. How long until they accept it? This points back to a creator.  We live in a probabilistic Universe, not a pre-determined one. Scientific method is broken and based on an objective reality that does not exist.

The ancients knew this through intuition and experience. These concepts can encompass most everything we have experienced. The future is just made up of probabilities. Your and other’s intent can change the future probabilities, but until it is in this reality frame in the now, observed, the future probability is not collapsed. Why is that important, because we need a paradigm shift better aligned with the way nature really works. Turns out all religions come from this basic truth the mystics learned long ago, All is Mind. Worlds colliding, past and present.

Well, they are close to rationally showing, and have much empirical data suggesting, Consciousness exists outside time and space and to enter into this reality simulation, it individuates itself in us. There is only Awareness at the base of reality and we are expressions of it in this material simulation. Nothing is absolute, all changes. Laws will be broken. To move in the moment intuitively turns out to be the best strategy. Is that the world we setup? No. Our new high priests of Science have left behind the spirit in search of the structure of the material world only using reductionist thinking to describe a mindless objective reality, when the Truth  is, what looks out of our eyes, is the ‘Other’.

We feel disconnected and we have the optical delusion we are separate from the world.  This is not the case. Your senses only provide a small slice of the data available around you. These guys are building on the growing understanding that everything in the Universe is just digital information. The implication is…

You are living in a consciousness reality simulation.

Scientists should always have an open mind and let the data speak for itself. The Princeton PEAR program has data that our intention can change the Quantum Field and thus change future probabilities with focus. The more you can focus, the greater you can effect future probabilities. Dean Radin from the Noetic Institute has much data from the 60’s to now backing this up. Critics of PEAR have said,

“I wouldn’t believe it even if it was true.”

That’s how entrenched people are. If true, and the data seems to prove it is, almost all paranormal phenomena can be explained. The Scientific Method depends on falsifiable theories. Well, it’s broken because it does not include the perspective of the observer. It assumes a deterministic objective reality, but we live in a probability based simulation. The future is not set. And your intention, in combination with others sets the future probabilities, in the moment you collapse them into the simulation information field. Get ready to have your minds blown and I’ll give you a hint, life is just a game, play well. There is a point to the game, to learn to Love. We are evolved by playing this game. You devolve or evolve based on the intention of your life. We live in this limited reality frame. There are others above us. Have we learned to Love, look around, we have a long way to go and we are All in it together. We must evolve ourselves. Love more.

Reality and Life on the Desktop

There is always some new theory or hypothesis to explain our observations about the exoteric outer universe and the esoteric inner biological one.

What is life?

Why do we exist?

What is existence?

Most people do not ask these questions on a daily basis. That’s good, there would be far less of us if we were all looking up at the sky wondering who we are and why we are here. The facts are these, we exist now here in some form. We are attracted to one another. We procreate. Evolutionarily speaking, that’s all you need to know and do. Whatever promotes the best chance for you to procreate is what you are wired to do in life. What’s the point of the big brain then? Hmm, why do we think about anything else besides procreating if evolution is all there is? Well, for some, evolution is the driver, for others we wonder who made the driver of the vehicle that is us?

What is the nature of this driver? It may be that consciousness is the fundamental aspect of reality.

Hmmm.

Having context in life sometimes can be beneficial and sometimes not. We need context today. We have a skewed perspective about reality or the simulation we exist in. We are destroying ourselves. Ultimately, even if all around us is a simulation for consciousness, we exist in some bigger reality simulating us.

I can’t say or know 100% if I am as real as my senses make me feel. You can’t trust your senses is the speaker’s point, but you can’t ignore consciousness either. An MIT PhD Cognitive Scientist, Donald Hoffman, has some interesting ideas about the nature of our reality and how we simply can never know the true nature of reality using our perceptions and senses only.

Is the Universe a simulation?

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.

Neutral Buoyancy: A Winning Strategy

I had a dream last night. I don’t remember it clearly.  It was important I felt, to somebody. This morning a kind of summary regarding recent happenings in my part of the space-time continuum began replaying in my mind and I felt some of my dream coming up. Been percolating for awhile. Here is the gist of it. I have been given many game pieces and hints recently to play with in this beautiful game of Life which it seems was created for our good. They just floated by. Let me explain.

This is not new information. It has been beamed into our heads since birth by everything around us, Life is a game. Some would have us believe either suffering is not real or that Life is only that, suffering. Suffering does not exist as we think it does. I’m not going to tell you it isn’t real. How do I know for sure? It sure as hell hurts sometimes. I feel It is more a corrective subroutine. You are not supposed to like it. It hurts. But there is a higher path through it. You just have to realize you are not real in the sense you think you are and thus your pain, is more guiding then crippling. Suffering encases you in a pupa in which you can grow into a beautiful butterfly. Any separation we feel between us inside/outside is our own. The point is to learn and explore your connections to every thing around you using all skills and talents at your disposal. We are not to shut our minds off, instead let them be guided by beneficial principles. There is a level of self benefit, but when you factor in other’s benefit into your thinking, you reach the next game level and as a bonus, you get a conscious awareness power up in game. You learn this through trial and error. There is no right or wrong, just the way things are. You accept them or not.

How do I know this? I read the instructions sillies. I didn’t just dream it. I’m not that crazy. In fact, I’m not crazy at all. I am completely lucid at this moment, more so than my entire life. That is an interesting point in the game. The infinite possibilities bonus level during a moment of clarity. The instructions are in this really hard to get to space in the 2nd ventricle of the heart, written reversed against the inner heart wall, in the sanctum sanctorum. For $19.99 I can mail you instructions how to find it. It’s such a small price to pay for such a great game hint 🙂 Even the instructions were hidden in this game.

I have learned through experience, there is a middle way, balance is possible. The Creators of this game don’t even know its depth. Why do you think we are here. From now until we die or our collective clocks run down, any doubt this is true will be shown to you as folly. Do you need to know its a game, in a way, yes.

No Man’s Sky is a new simulated Universe game that created a Universe in 600,000 lines of code. They modeled our current understanding of physics into the game. It’s the first of its kind and unique in its scope in the way the Universe was modeled, on demand, the subroutine for a new area starts running. The patterns in our brain are hard wired to seek a Creator and know thy self perhaps. Maybe people are led unconsciously to create games that mirror Ultimate Reality because we are not ready to occupy that specific game level yet. Or perhaps that is beyond the game. And to say it is a game, they mean we are a simulation most likely.

Everything is a mirror. We are creators and that I think is part of the point of the game. Learn to love, flow free and create good things spontaneously for all. The game routines are not running when not needed. Now bring in VR and you can see we are on the verge of a new entertainment explosion. Watch, you will see VR take over in the next 5 years. It is a true fractal simulation based on the theory’s of Nick Bostrum. Nick is a philosopher who the smartest people in the world are listening to. He is an AI theorist. Nick just showed we are likely not real and simulated. If the smartest in the world believe this, what do you think they are doing? They are running the game. Accept, being most powerful is no better in this game than being a gamete.

How did I come to know this, because I know it as sure as my arms and legs before me. I told you, I found the instructions. The eastern and western esoteric traditions have explored our simulation in great depth. This is the Truth at the center of their secret knowings. They learned that once you have read all the instructions, you have to turn yourself into a key. A key to unlock parts of the game. It is a very common human reaction that when you know you have discovered the key, 9 times out of 10, people want to keep it for themselves and theirs. That is a test. It is a losing strategy.

So if you want to be President, a drunk, a beggar, a drug addict, ruler of the Galaxy, a janitor, a Dad, a Mom, do it! All equally valid in the spirit of exploring the game. As many times as you want for as long as you want. We have eternity it seems. But there is an order to things. A game progression. We are being directed in a way it seems to make ourselves better. To expand our minds. It seems whoever expands the furthest, maybe even into non-existence in the game is the winner. There is a hint. Openness and awareness. Anything you can do to foster those seems to lead to some great in game benefits.

Now, here is one existential paradox. If it is a game, no matter how hard you try, you will only be able to learn what has been put into the game. It may be a closed game, seems unlikely, but we can never know. Nick explains it is impossible to know if we are simulated after we have created adequately sophisticated simulations ourselves.

OK, that all seems logical, but is the Universe only logical? We just can’t know. Everyone has their own subjective experience. May I suggest a good game strategy that has been working well for me, neutral buoyancy. Neutral Buoyancy is a condition in which a physical body’s average density is equal to the density of the fluid in which it is immersed. Don’t go out of your depth, let the currents and your own composition lead you up or down as a balloon. Truthfully, you can’t go anywhere where you have not equalized to the pressure. In this way, it is impossible to cheat in the game to get to the true treasure.

Go with the flow.

That’s it, its also the title of my new book, Neutral Buoyancy: A Winning Strategy. I decided to try to write about the game instructions. Its not against the rules. But it is a proven losing strategy though. No one listens. I thought I would try to knock my head against the wall writing until something else comes loose.

Life is a game.
