As above, so below.
I believe life is a game that we chose to play.
I believe we came here because we thought it’d be fun, for a brief moment in time, to NOT know that we’re the whole thing.
We thought it’d be fun to be unsure if the rustle in the bushes was a beast that has come to end us for good.
Here is why I think this.
“As above, so below.”
Our finger prints are the same shape as our galaxy. The micro mirrors the macro. The infinitesimal mirrors the infinite.
The bible puts it like this: “Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.”- 1 Corinthians 15:49
So, it makes sense to me that what we would do here on this lower level of being, is probably very similar to what we would do on a higher level of being.
So, then… what ARE we doing?
Well, one thing were doing is we’re working day and night to create a fully immersive virtual reality gaming system.
One day we will create a game that’s so real that we forget it’s even a game.
Let’s imagine for a moment what this process might look like.
It’s the year 2350 and we’re super familiar with fully immersive virtual reality gaming systems.
Not only that, but let’s say we’ve also cracked the code on how to extend the life of our physical bodies to hundreds of years. Hell, we might’ve even figured out how to upload our consciousness into computer bodies..
At this point, simply playing the VR game while knowing you’re not actually the character in the game is starting to become boring.
So, we find out how to create a game where, once we enter the game, we forget it’s a game altogether.
We limit our intelligence. We play at being smaller, dumber, than our true selves outside the game. We believe that danger is real. We pretend to not know whether there’s life after death.
What if we’ve done this an infinite number of times already?
If you really think about it, this is in line with what the sages of every religion have believed for thousands of year, only with a technological bent.
