Are we living inside a virtual simulation?

Are we living inside a virtual simulation?

A 2012 study out of Bonn University led to a new round of speculation about the nature of the universe. (See here and here.)

The study proposes that cosmic rays undergo a strange energy shift. The energies are “re-fitted” to align with an underlying pattern or lattice. There is only one proper fit; no exceptions are permitted.

If the lattice is, indeed, a basic pixel-like Reality we are interacting with every day of our lives, then we could be living inside a created artifice.

A simulation.

Put this description alongside the hypothesis that the universe is a hologram: lines of code inscribed on a two-dimensional surface deliver instructions on how the lattice is built, and what its properties are.

In other words, the software which holographically projects the universe includes the exact structure of the lattice.

Then, by the rules of the game, energies which don’t automatically plug into the lattice framework precisely as they’re supposed to are “snapped to” a correct fit, as Mike Adams (Natural News) has suggested.

Mike has made the analogy to a television picture, which consists of pixels that have their own dimensions and structure. So if we imagine an all-encompassing “television picture,” this would be the lattice-controlled reality we live in.

In the long-term project of putting together my collections The Matrix Revealed and Exit From The Matrix, I did a great deal of research on other notions of creation or “reality-building.”

It is clear that at deep levels, propaganda turns into self-propaganda. In order to live inside a Matrix or universe, we would have to produce, in ourselves, an extraordinary level of amnesia about what we can create.

The ancient Tibetans knew a great deal about this conundrum. Before they became a theocratic society of rites and rituals and a rigorous elitism, they were daring adventurers on the edge of experiments in consciousness.

Relying on the teachings of itinerant outcast adepts from India, they developed a practice called, by a few later scholars, “deity visualization.” (See John Blofeld, The Tantric Mysticism of Tibet)

Perhaps based on an already existing mandala-painting, a teacher would give his student a very detailed and specific “personage” to create in his imagination. This effort, if it was successful at all, might take months or even years.

The objective was to mentally hold the complex image intact, in every detail, not just for a few seconds or minutes, but indefinitely. If the student was successful at this arduous task, he would soon find that the personage he created seemed to take on a life of its own.

The personage or deity would become the student’s friend and guide and give him valuable advice and counsel. When the teacher sensed this relationship had progressed to a very close point, he would order the student to get rid of the personage altogether.

This, it was said, was more difficult than the original act of creating it. But if the student was able to perform both aspects (creative and destructive) of the exercise, he would then realize, see, and know, with full consciousness, that THE UNIVERSE WAS A PRODUCT OF MIND.

At that crossroad, he would be able to spontaneously take apart pieces of “the hologram” or “the lattice,” and even create (out of nothing) new objects that hadn’t existed before.

Perhaps those Tibetan adepts, in their practice, actually saw the lattice or even the two-dimensional surface on which the holographic code of the cosmos is inscribed.

Another clue concerning the origin or underlying force that made the universe is revealed through a study of the famous alchemical diagram: two crossed staves.

The four endpoints were said to represent the basic aspects or elements of Nature: earth, air, fire, and water. According to some alchemical interpretations, these elements were in eternal conflict with one another.

The resolution of the conflict was represented by the center-place where the two staves met. This mysterious intersection was called Quintessence, and its meaning was long debated.

Paracelsus, one of the most famous of the European alchemists, seems to have thought that Quintessence was, in fact, imagination.

In other words, our creative power could change the inherent design of reality.

The history of millions of artists on this planet directly points to the fact that, when freed from restraints, human beings become enormously creative. Every painting, play, poem, novel is a world of its own; a universe. This suggests that the physical universe is but one work of art, out of a possible infinity of universes.

William Blake made several remarkable statements about the power of imagination:

“Some see nature all ridicule and deformity…and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.”

“Imagination is the real and eternal world of which this vegetable universe is but a faint shadow.”

Of course, the notion of multiple universes is reflected in contemporary science. Physicist Brian Greene, author of The Hidden Reality, explains that Relativity and Quantum Theory, each highly useful in its own way, come into high mathematical conflict when set side by side.

One resolution of that conflict can be achieved through String Theory, in which tiny vibrating strings (in 10 or 11 dimensions) explain the makeup of this universe. But String Theory also suggests many surfaces or membranes or islands on which matter, energy, and time can exist: multiple universes.

No matter what force or power we say made this universe, a new day is here. We are coming to grips with the idea that the universe isn’t all the reality there is. Some find this disturbing. Others are inspired to feel it is intensely liberating.

Yet another hypothesis: we are living in an interpenetration of several simultaneous universes or planes of existence. And they’re all here now, if we could see them.

The rigorous lattice or holographic code defining this universe is merely the way one plane of existence is structured.

Rather than reduce all possible universes to the principles on which this one may be built, why not consider many, many other such “works of art?” Each universe is constructed or improvised out of the infinite well of creative freedom…

Exit From the Matrix

Could there be a greater illustration of the principle of Abundance?

Throughout history, humans have been reaching for, and elevating the idea of greater abundance. In one of the early Bible stories, Old Testament Joseph, as a boy, dreams of dancing sheaves of wheat. Wheat, grain was, for the ancients, a living symbol of abundance.

Johanna Stuckey, well-known researcher on early goddesses, points out that the Sumerian grain goddess, Ezina/Ashnan, was also called Lady of Abundance.

We have always sought, in faith, in hope, in myth, in story, in investigation the means for unending abundance. Now, we also see it reflected in our most far-reaching contemplations: not just one universe, but many universes, without end. Because if we are living in this virtual space and time, why shouldn’t other continua exist?

Are they all simulations? Is a painting a simulation? Not really. It’s an independent invention, undertaken in freedom, launched from the unfettered imagination of an artist. It is its own universe.

We are all artists.

With all veils and curtains lifted, this is the truth we have always known.

    Hi Jon: I wish you would investigate the flat earth movement. I have been doing a lot of research into this, the facts are stacking up. this would be the altimet matrix breaker.

    Thank you sir.

          A Trump fantasy? Who even mentioned Trump? You come off as being incredibly polarized in whatever positions you take.

          • @Arisen Ryan

            Speaking of Donald Trump…I had a dream the other nite that I was living in a universe like the Matrix movies. Well, Matrix Reloaded. And I was Neo, trying to save the real humans, and Donald Trump was Agent Smith.
            And he kept running around sticking his hand inside peoples bodies and they would change like animated mercury into Donald Trumps. So there I was, me against trillions of Donald freaking Trumps. They were coming out of the woodwork…open the fridge for a snack and a glass of milk, and out would pop a Donald Trump.
            Lift the lid on the toilet seat for a whizz….bingo bango bongo, out would pop Donald Trump, like a jack-in-the-box.
            Well, needless to say, we all got in a big fight, me and millions of Donald Trumps.
            I was kick-boxing them in my black floor lenght Cardinal’s outfit with my sunglasses and kung fuing them, in my extremely good looks, I would have to say… Karate chopping them, and Jujitsuing them. Ripping flag poles up and flying around it like a helicopter propeller knocking dozens of Trumps out the ball park. They would all jump me in a big pile and I would explode them into orbit.
            Then the thought came to me why not become Hillary, since Donald’s arch-enemy is Hillary, I could go around sticking my hand into Donalds, turning them into Hillaries. Yeah, thats the the ticket, that would do. Well what a cluster-fuck. This went back and forth and back and forth like ping pong. I’d changed a Donald and Donald would change a Hillary. everybody going around sticking their hands in peoples bodies
            It got to be like that boardgame you play with black and white stones…touch one Donald and a whole row would change, then Donald would get an outside spot on the board and the board began to slant in his favor….back and forth, tooth and nail, high heel and hairpiece.
            Finally I get a corner and then another and at last the final corner and the last battle for the whole board. And I get the final corner and zippity do da, change the whole board to Hillaries all at once.
            I look around and there were wall to wall Hillaries. I’d won, finally, and the bonus was, Hillary was sick and needed to take Warfarin for her clotting, so all I had to do was wait to end and the Hillaries would be gone all at once. and there I’d be free at last.
            And so I waited and waited waited and waited, amongst all these damn Hillaries blinking, standing around not saying anything, which I might say was disconcerting, finally I got so tired I fell asleep.

            Anyway my point is…I have a feeling that if we elect Donald Trump, he will leave us for a younger prettier country.

            ahahahaha you got me with that surprise ending.
            totally did not see it coming

          • Great story, MB,

            But does anyone get elected? I thought voters only selected pre-screened candidates (usually to “lock out” the opposition).

            If there were true elections, politicians would be “of the people” and the prospect of that is as far fetched as your tall tale 😉

          • Arisen Ryan says:

            Your totally real dream scenario makes more sense than the flat earth conspiracy, I will say. Trump or Hillary. Same same, the silly sock puppets. It basically amounts to the archetypal Big Bankster fist bumping himself all day.

    • arcadia11 says:

      i feel the same way, wulf.

    You have your original, eternal and beginningless true spiritual senses, and then you have your maya-imposed subtle and gross material senses, which reveal to you the false subtle and gross material planes, including those material sense organs themselves on both subtle and gross material planes, and souls under maya then misidentify these subtle and gross material senses as themselves, whilst in truth merely observing them with their temporarily rather dimmed true spiritual senses, and people can take it from there. Sit back in higher states of consciousness and watch it happen. Just as we observe in our dreams, so we observe here.

  5. Jon, as you are aware, science has confounded itself by the way it looks at things. Indeed, I might go as far as saying scientists look in the wrong places, as I state here ( When normal people, the regular Joe Blow’s of society do this, they are called ignorant. I say the same of those rambunctious scientists.

    Yes, this new German theory (an extension of a much older one) projects “holographic universe” (in our case HU1), but the Ummo’s (extra-terrestrial visitors that settled in Spain in the 1950’s) expressed it so much better and ever so accurately (not that anyone bothers to reference their work). The Germans are correctly incorrect which is to be expected of technocrats.

    Quantum theory and “super strings” are nonsense in current forms. They have found evidence for multiple dimensions (i.e. a very limited 3D experience) contained in curved (sic) space but “science” hasn’t the balls to look at what is “as it is”. Relativity is the illusion that contains dimensionally restricted beings.

    The Tibetan book of the dead is a most interesting document. It proposed concentric, conflicting cycles that somehow fit together like jigsaws (which arguably allows for “multiple duplicate existences at any given time”). Purists might argue the exercises they relay to resonate the imagination are manipulations of reality, but, then again, what is reality without imagination? That’s the “modern” obsession with technology and scripted existence. Are not all laws the antipathy of freedoms? If religions are born from idealistic regulation under the guise of ecclesiastical power, then utopian society (per that concept) would be akin to a computer program with God, the immortal tyrant, ruling by rote.

    That isn’t the case.

    Nature, the “vegetable world” is the true remedy for all that ails mankind. As I go to sleep this night, I will create a green paradise filled with running water and gentle fragrant breezes and soft sweet grass to pillow my head. Perhaps, if I concentrate very hard, the image will become reality and the reality will take root in every dimension. I heard the hum of bees in flowers……
