Is our world a simulation? Think about it for a minute. How do we know that reality is real? And if we really are living in a simulation, can we ever really find out? Surprisingly we might be able to answer that very question. Have a look at this.
I would love to get a “yes” to that question. Would it matter? Would it change anything? I hardly think it would make a difference in the long run, but it’d be really interesting to see how people would react to something like that.
As for me… I have already accepted that reality is complicated and not within my reach. I have long ago decided to live for the moment, be happy and cherish the small things in life (as cheesy as this may sound).
And another thought. Maybe, just maybe all we are, is really (REALLY) advanced computers; maybe that would explain all that batch processing we have to go through each night 🙂
Marijuana Cures Cancer?
I’ve been wondering why marijuana is completely illegal with all the great things it offers. I mean it is less dangerous than alcohol, and yet alcohol is perfectly legal and not even really regulated… Makes you wonder…
Here’s an interesting read on this: http://www.drugwarrant.com/articles/why-is-marijuana-illegal/
No matter what you think about 2012, the end of time and all the things we seem to be hearing about more and more these days there is no doubt all this is very fascinating. I have been reading about what people call the Omega Point (the maximum level of complexity and consciousness to which the universe seems to be evolving) and well what it basically means is that the world is coming to an end and some say it’s as close as 2012. I guess I’ve always thought I’d be here to experience the end of times but it seems that most generations think theirs will be the last so… 🙂
So well you can read the stuff I’ve been readingon how everything around us seem to be heading to their highest possible state of consciousness/complexity and how things like the I-Ching, the Mayan calendar and the Apocalypse all seem to be predicting we’re in fact very near the end…
Teilhard imagines a critical threshold, Omega Point, in which mankind will have reached its highest point of complexification (socialization) and thus its highest point of consciousness. At this point consciousness will rupture through time and space and assert itself on a higher plane of existence from which it can not come back.
