Life – is it a simulation or a loving creation? Or is it both – a lovingly created simulation? Is the Universe hostile or friendly? Your worldview influences your experience, so it makes a difference which you believe. Simulation implies fakery and loving creation implies a well-intentioned Creator. Alternatively one could ask:
Is Earth a Prison or a School?
As a mental exercise, let’s consider both possibilities.
Life as a Simulation
“Have you ever seen your neighbor bring home the groceries?”. I sometimes ask jokingly when the conversation goes to life as a simulation. I don’t remember the last time I saw any neighbor bring home groceries, anywhere I lived. 🙂 Funny, huh? I re-positioned my office with a view to the street and other houses but still haven’t witnessed grocery shopping. Am I the only one in my street who eats? More likely I’m not paying attention to neighbors enough. If I sat there and stared with binoculars all day, I might catch a food item somewhere. But all kidding aside, here is something genuinely strange:
In the house I lived between 2016 and 2018, I was operating a surveillance camera on my property. The camera was hidden. It captured the driveway, entrance and also, incidentally, the roofed parking space of our neighbor.`
We went abroad on vacation for a few weeks. Upon returning, I looked at the surveillance camera and noticed that our neighbors car wasn’t parked in its usual place while we were gone. The day we left, our neighbor also left. The day we returned, our neighbor also returned.
I put it off as coincidence…until it happened again! Half a year later, we again travelled away for a few days. And so did our neighbor! When we returned, his car returned, visible in the surveillance footage. It was like some weird quantum-zen: Our neighbor only existed as long as we were there to observe him. We didn’t know the neighbor – a friendly single man – very well and never informed him of our travel plans. He parked his car in the exactly same spot every day, reliably and predictably when he came home from work. But on the days we were away, he was also away, not coming home from work. Where did he go?
Then we remembered that he moved into the house beside us, only one week after we had moved into ours. Before that, a woman and her daughter were living there and they left quite suddenly.
And there’s still more: A few months after we moved out of the house, to another town hundreds of miles further north, I returned to the town on Business. I decided to drop by our old house, out of curiosity. I discovered that the man had also moved away and a family was now living in the house that he had lived. Cue the twilight-zone music.
This was just next-level weird. Who is this guy? A guardian angel in human form, who was assigned to us? A projection? A matrix-operative?
The next two houses we moved into, also saw a neighbor moving in beside us only one week after we moved into our house. It seems to be a pattern in our life!
Speculation: Maybe our personal energy-fields have a greater impact on our surroundings. Perhaps my presence or absence synchronically causes the presence or absence of others. Perhaps everything is so very interconnected and perfectly arranged that our moving into a place requires another to move out of a place. A couple of years ago, my wife started working in a new office. I jokingly remarked that her mere presence drives away the bad people. The joke was on me, because it turned out to be true! Within four weeks of her arrival, three people resigned. In fact, the only three people my wife didn’t like, decided to resign, including her Boss who was prone to temper tantrums and a colleague known for sexually harassing the women in the office. She didn’t consciously do anything for that to happen. It’s just that oil and water don’t mix.
The image below shows the Nile river and country Vietnam side by side. Notice anything?
Why do they have the same shape, down to tiny details? Is that lazy programming of this realm? Just copy-paste the shape for for Vietnam from the Nile?
There are many “glitches in the matrix” that lead deep-thinking people to wonder if Earth is a simulation or conspiracy. A lot of very successful people have gone public with their belief that Earth is a “matrix”-like simulation. The most famous among those, is probably Elon Musk.
Shortly before he died, the famous film critic Roger Ebert said that life on Earth is an “elaborate hoax”. His wife had this to say:
“The one thing people might be surprised about—Roger said that he didn’t know if he could believe in God. He had his doubts. But toward the end, something really interesting happened. That week before Roger passed away, I would see him and he would talk about having visited this other place. I thought he was hallucinating. I thought they were giving him too much medication. But the day before he passed away, he wrote me a note: “This is all an elaborate hoax.” I asked him, “What’s a hoax?” And he was talking about this world, this place. He said it was all an illusion. I thought he was just confused. But he was not confused. He wasn’t visiting heaven, not the way we think of heaven. He described it as a vastness that you can’t even imagine. It was a place where the past, present, and future were happening all at once”.
The idea that life is a simulation has gained traction in the last years for two reasons:
- We are creating virtual realities that are hardly discernable from “real life”. There have also been attempts to make discernment between real and unreal, truth and falsehood fuzzy and inscrutable (for example “deepfake videos”).
- Political, economical and medical fraud have become much more visible in the last years. Before 2015 only very smart people could see the fakery, now most people can see it to one degree or another.
In my 2008 article titled “Incarnating into Virtual Reality” I warned that we may be incarnating into denser and denser realities, away from ultimate reality. We may already be living in a virtual reality and are now creating another one within this one. I said it could be a game but also a trap for the soul. Or perhaps both – a game that attempts to trap us.
Life is a Lovingly Created School
Even though I entertain the idea that we live in a simulation and think it’s a valid idea, I don’t adhere to it in practice. My life and actions derive from the belief that life is a lovingly created school.
I don’t believe that we have lost a cosmic war and are now trapped under a dome and used as batteries.
That would be “the Luciferian viewpoint”. Why do I call it that? Because the ancient story of Lucifer is about a rebellion against what is seen as an evil Creator or prison-ward of this realm. Even though this viewpoint makes sense at a certain level of consciousness, I won’t subscribe to it, because it would adversely affect my well-being and resultant actions. Simple as that!
If I believed I am trapped by an evil demiurge who seeks to enslave, then I would quit my Coaching work and join an underground resistance group or secret society. I’d lose interest in healing or supporting individuals because it would all be pointless as long as we live in a hostile Universe. I’d consider everyone brainwashed sheep and resort to radical and violent breaking of any rules set by any authority. If we were trapped by cruel archons below a glass ceiling, then there is no point in adhering to normal civilized life and society. The only goal then, is to bring down the system and break free.
But if I believe that the world is lovingly created, as a school, then I will not seek to break free, but instead enjoy the show, appreciate my time here and marvel at the beauty of it all. The only thing then to break free from is the mental bondage of negative beliefs.
“The world is a thing of utter inordinate complexity and richness and strangeness that is absolutely awesome” – Douglas Adams
“But what about all the evidence of fakery?” you might ask. “What about all the bad stuff?”
Well, you’re meant to notice things, to discern true from false, to heal, to ascend in consciousness and in spite of the challenges. Life is half negative, half positive. It’s supposed to be, so that you can learn to choose wisely and grow through your bad and good decisions.
You are also meant to learn not to be baited by negative programming. As of now, it’s too easy to get people angry or fearful. If they can’t trigger you with the Flu, they phase it out and try to trigger you with War, Financial Crash, Food Shortage, etc. Why do people keep falling for fear-programming? It’s up to you to not take the bait and remain in your power.
Being a little challenged is good. There is no “mean ol’ world” out to get you. There are only opportunities to grow and experience your awesome creative power to overcome challenges. I believe nobody experiences challenges harder than they can handle. When you die and move on to the next world, you will see that things weren’t quite as serious as they might have looked. While incarnate on Earth a thing might look like a tragedy, from from a higher view that same thing looks like comedy.
I can’t answer the question whether life is a simulation or not. But I can say for sure that it can be much more light and free – if you allow it to be.
