Are We In A Simulation?

Attempting to state that life is a simulation is, to me, an attempt to explain away that which whoever cannot explain.

I find that it is OK to not have a objective, defined explanation for everything.

I believe firmly that there are no mistakes in life.

I  have met people on this very website who share major astrological similarities and we have shared experiences, despite differences in sex, cultural background, etc.

It doesn't make life a simulation. It reaffirms its existence. It is really, really, remarkable, magical, astounding, and miraculous.

Much of what is deemed ancient/tribal religion, had a lot of scientific knowledge embedded within without all the "objective methodology" inserted.

Take the Ancient Bible for instance, with the simple statement "We are the children of light". This sentence is so laden with metaphysics, yet is eloquently wrapped in a humanistic statement.

@darkaquarian I have never thought about it in this way. Thank you for sharing that! It is like quantum physics for people who had no framework to comprehend it at that time. It is amazing how many myths and ancient stories closely reflect complex cosmic and energetic phenomena. What if we are recycling and looking at the same principles over and over again but from different angle and level of understanding as we evolve as human race ?

@placebo-essence I'm not so sure that it is about not having a framework, but rather that the framework was less about the mathematical linguistics behind it all, but more about ideologically and spiritually (and I mean in the sense of communicating with spirits or non-humans) expression of these truths of "quantum entanglement", that again have a more humanistic tonality to them than the objective numerical idioms and so forth (in which the arguments for how we view the western world begin).

I also want to avoid any disrespectful and reductionist comparisons, because although I do feel that ideas like quantum entanglement may be compared to other indigenous, tribal, pagan/neo-pagan, ideas within them and other religions, I would rather allow that conversation to take place from each of those perspectives than me speak for them.

Your hypothesis is similar that that of Rudolf Steiner, and many others. There is lots to repeat here, for Steiner is wordy, but not loquacious. Basically, in our now crystallized body, we must do our diligence in preparation for becoming the spirit self, and more further down the line.

We might be living in a matrix, but what do those coincidences have to do with it?  They're saying life is preplanned.

The list is random. The person worked on it... I was just trying to start a conversation.

"simulation" probably means different things to different people.

The Simpson's situation along with the zillion other similar things in shows going back decades is enough to get my attention.

I think Kobe's death in a plane crash was depicted in several programs... other than the Simpson's. I would not call this a coincidence, personally. But I saw the clips. If you have not, it may not register, I don't know.

So, was his death simulated? Probably. 

Michael jackson, Whitney Houston and Kobe all died right before a big awards show. Coincidence? 

All three of them are or were larger than life. HUGE.

@elsa I know you did not make the list, but I am curious about what you see in it. I am confused about what all of the things have in common.

Some of the things, like the Simpsons episode predictions, are almost like prophecies. Reminds me of the "art imitates life" thread on this forum.

Some of them are literal coincidences, like multiple people coming up with the same idea simultaneously and independently - or similar events coinciding.

Three celebrities dying before major awards shows - I feel like that's more of a pattern.

Simulation definitely has different meanings in different contexts. Are you thinking about computer simulation? People in power? Other life forms? God? I may be missing the mark, because I tend to take things too literally...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simulacra_and_Simulation Does this help crack open the meaning of the list? "Baudrillard claims that our current society has replaced all reality and meaning with symbols and signs, and that human experience is a simulation of reality."

@cocopeaches I don't see anything in the list. It's Dannyboi who made the list. I imagined that he might have been born in '93.  But he (who may be a she) was the one who claimed it proved we were living in a simulation.  You would have to quiz him / her on this list.

I just think it's an interesting question (as titled). I pasted his work here, hoping to start a conversation. Period. On that front, I guess I was successful.

As for the rest, if I can't define "simulation" for all who may read here, I certainly can't differentiate it from a prophecy or a coincidence or a pattern. I can say this: there's a bunch of shit going on that's not right.

But some of the other shit going that's not right, is fun and funny, thrilling and entertaining.  But this is not going to make sense to you if you are unaware of the uh... "easter eggs" which have actually been provided and there to be found, since before I was born.  Like, this isn't new.

Edit to add, there is something going on with Katy Perry and Pokemon'. Maybe it's like this - gotta catch 'em all.

Which reminds me of when Pokemon' Go was in vogue. Satori wrote about it. My husband's son and my son were all playing it... these are people from different generations.

There's a guy who takes care of the football field at the local hs here, he's been doing this job for decades. All the sudden, his field was swarming with kids with phones, chasing Pokemon'(s?)

He went out there and asked them, "What are doing out here?"

They told him, showed him on their phone. He assured them, "There ain't nothing like that out here! Go home!"

@elsa LOL at the lawn mower guy. Ok, this is all I've got: https://greatestideaever.wordpress.com/2021/01/28/2085-gamestop-is-just-the-beginning/

Fuck I hate games.

Sure, I think I am self narrated SIM in the mind of God.

I don't believe we're in a simulation, I believe that the real world is real. However, it is also layered and full of mystery. Even with all our knowledge as a species, what we know is just a fraction of the big picture.

What about the fact that several civilizations recorded a story about a worldwide flood? My English professor concluded that Noah plagiarized the flood story. I disagree. I think the event was so big that multiple civilizations either experienced it, or heard about it and put their own spin or mythology on it.

Fuck I hate games.

@cocopeaches I used to love games and puzzles when I was a kid.  Cards, anyway. But I quit playing a number of years ago because it would get too much adrenaline running through me. I realized winning was like life or death to me. I was essentially having a flashback to my childhood, which if you're unaware of it - oh well.  I did not like the feelings so I quit. I have sat at a card table for 20+ years. It used to be one of my favorite things to do.

 

Now I like this current game for the most part. I have adapted to it.  And both my kids played a lot of (video) games, especially my son but really both of them.  I hate video games but I am aware of them. I know they talk to each other... form relationships with people around the world, similar to what happens on this forum. Life occurs in the game.

Terrorists have also been discovered meeting in a gaming environment.  I am by no means an expert, this is meant to give you some idea. We talk in astrology - they talk in "game".

So you don't have to play. There is a name for someone who is not part of the game: non-playing character or NPC.

This is the representation of NPCs:

non playing character group

This is seen as insulting but it not meant that way in this context. I am trying to give you some idea.  NPC's are just not involved in the happenings. If you encounter one in the (video) game, you would not talk to them, if that makes sense.  You're looking for other players?

I wonder if you're having a Saturn transit. This might be the point where you wake up and realize you're "old". I hope you know what I mean.  It's like, wtf, I am no longer on top of things.

The GameStop thing you linked (did not click) is a part of the game.  In this game, people on the side you don't like are made to look like bad people. In reality, the people who have bought Gamestop come from every walk of life but they do have one thing in common, they would like to profit.

The people who want to discredit and disparage them do not want them to profit so it's game on!

Pretty cool, huh? Or maybe not.

Some years ago, my son sat me down, literally, and told me that the people he was constantly talking to, through a headset from our living room were friends of his. Real friends. He was in high school and had played with them for nearly ten years!

It's just like this forum. It's a way people connect. But as our world becomes more and more machined, these younger generations are coming up.  I like them. I am relieved. They are a righteous group for the most part.

@elsa I’m glad that you found a new game that you enjoy playing, with people you enjoy. I know you played cards, and that you were good at it, and I think that’s cool. I’m also aware of the abuse that you endured in your younger years, which is hard to wrap my head around, but I applaud you for overcoming it. And I’ve followed the stories of your kids and what they liked to do. I am a big fan of yours, and I absorb a lot of what you broadcast!

The article I linked was not really disparaging towards diamond hands people, I don’t think. It actually validated the whole GameStopBets phenomenon - at least for me, by rationalizing the shift in the paradigm. It was just a random blog that I found, and it turned out to be an interesting one. The same blogger posted a piece just last night that referenced “the simulation hypothesis,” which was also interesting and timely for me. This stuff just wasn’t really on my radar, but now I think I can see it. My dad always taught me that “you create your own destiny,” and this game concept definitely fits within that framework. The game now seems bigger, and more interactive, than I previously thought. It is cool! It just took me a minute to grasp what the heck you were talking about...

I may be a NPC (thanks for the visual, LOL), but you could also call me a spectator, or even a fan. Please understand that it’s very hard for me to pick a side to play on, or even root for, because of where I’m from… My hometown is centered around the financial industry, and I resented growing up in this bubble. I shunned anything that had to do with hedge funds or investment banking when I lived there, because it just made my eyes glaze over. I had zero desire to afford living there permanently, because it was all just ludicrous to me. I was not attracted to men who wore suits. I wanted a man who knew how to build a fire. Seriously that was my criteria! They were hard to find in my neck of the woods. I ended up in the midwest, married to an outdoorsman. With family and work still on the east coast, I now straddle two worlds. I’m still pretty naive to most of the financial world, but now guess who is in charge of managing our household finances? Me!

You’re right about a Saturn transit - t. Saturn is squaring my Pluto this year - which isn’t supposed to be personal, but mine is planted in my 4th house. And t. Pluto in Capricorn is squaring my 10th house Venus, so I am feeling a bit - omg I’m ugly! and omg I’m poor! and crap, I might be dumb too!! I’m concerned about my retirement savings, and I worry about the financial stability of our country. I feel guilty indulging in the vanity of it all. But it seems tied to survival, so I don't know how to assuage my restless reptilian brain.

As someone with a ton of Aries and Sadge action in my chart, it’s curious that I don’t like games or sports or competitions. My fire energy gets side-swiped by Gemini, and it seems impossible to keep my head in the game. Also, I just don’t know how to play any of the cool games! I was never taught how to play poker or chess. But I do like Easter egg hunts (probably because my mom put money in the eggs.) And I like actual hunting. I like the zen of target practice, where the only objective is to practice keeping your head in the game. I like nature because it’s full of surprises and new information. I can get into puzzles, and I do relate to what you said about the adrenaline taking over. I just prefer to stay based in reality rather than games, which are in essence, simulations. Now that I’m aware that it's possible for games to affect reality (just like politics), I’m a little confused about how to proceed! But thank you for your responses.
