Life Inside the Simulation

Published

on

Reality as we know it can be described in two ways – hard and soft. Hard reality is physics. If you jump from a building, you’ll break your bones. These immutable laws govern airplane travel. (Have you noticed a lot of weird stuff is happening with airplanes lately?)

Soft reality is where we spend most of our lives. Our reality is socially constructed and dictated by culture. Do this, don’t do that. Nearly every risk in the modern Western world is emotional and psychological.

The Simulation can thus be understood as being of two types – hard and soft. The hard simulation is the computer we live in. (Read, “What Are the Odds We Are Living in a Computer Simulation?“)

Is Reality a Simulation, and if so, Does it Matter?

The Simulated Hypothesis reality, which is less scary than it seems, is an argument about whether the world came about via a Big Bang, from God (or gods), or whether some sufficiently advanced being created the world we live in. The hard simulation theory, also known as the Simulated Reality Hypothesis, goes like this:

A popular argument for the simulation hypothesis came from University of Oxford philosopher Nick Bostrum in 2003, when he suggested that members of an advanced civilization with enormous computing power might decide to run simulations of their ancestors. They would probably have the ability to run many, many such simulations, to the point where the vast majority of minds would actually be artificial ones within such simulations, rather than the original ancestral minds. So simple statistics suggest it is much more likely that we are among the simulated minds.

Watch: Elon Musk, Are We in a Simulation?

Discussing the Simulation draws a lot of eye rolls and sometimes even anger, which doesn’t make sense on a logical level.

God could have created the Simulation. Or some architects might have. Just as there’s room for God in the Big Bang, there’s room for God in the Simulation.

Lesser intellects dismiss the Simulation theory as nonsense. Those people aren’t to be taken seriously as they’ve never thought deeply about the issue.

Watch this video and you’ll see that dismissing the Simulation theory doesn’t show people how smart you are.

Simulated Reality

As computers grow more powerful and complex, the plausibility of simulating an entire universe grows less absurd. In fact, many now believe that our universe could be a vast computer simulation. In this video I explore the relatively new field of digital physics, the plausibility of a simulated universe, and how we may one day create our own universe.

 

How can you prove we live in a Simulation?

The paradox of the simulated reality hypothesis is that any sufficiently complex society capable of forming simulations would be able to hide the code from its inhabitants.

Scott Adams works around the paradox as follows:

If we are simulations, we should expect to see two additional qualities in the universe as partial confirmation:

1. We should expect that we can’t travel past the boundaries of the simulation.

2. We wouldn’t be able to observe the basic building blocks of our reality.

Sure enough, we meet both criteria.

We can’t travel beyond the edge of the universe without exceeding the speed of light, which is theoretically impossible. That’s what you would expect in a simulation. You would have some sort of rule of physics to keep the simulated people from traveling beyond the edges. Here I’m assuming the universe is expanding at the same rate as the light that is traveling in all directions, so we can never catch up to it.

The hypothetical creators of our simulation would also try to prevent us from discovering that we are not made of anything real. And sure enough, when science looks at our basic building blocks at the quantum level, all we have is probability and strangeness.

One issue with Adams’ reasoning is he may be viewing the fact that we don’t know something (how subatomic particle behave with certainty) as proof that we must therefore be in a simulation.

Of course there is nothing wrong with his reasoning, because none of us can prove we live in a Simulation, or that we don’t live in a Simulation. (Read, “How to know if you’re a real person or living in a simulation.”)

Elon Musk made similar posts as Scott Adams noting, in response to an article about Schrodinger’s cat, “To conserve computing power, a simulation would only render an object when it is observed.”

When asked is someone would hear a tree fall in an empty forest, Musk explained, “A simulation probably wouldn’t spend computing power on sound.”

The soft simulation is the software we are running.

“Culture is your operating system.” – Terence McKenna

When I speak about the Simulation I’m usually referring to the “soft” one, or what the post-modernists called “socially-constructed reality,” or “narratives.”

Or what Jordan Belfort called the “bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve” your dreams.

There is a Narrative About You, and you believe it.

Maybe your parents told you the narrative, or someone in school, and you believed it.

Or you had a bad experience, and this experience became your identity rather than a data point.

There’s even a term for this – Imposter Syndrome.

Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon, impostorism, fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a psychological pattern in which an individual doubts their accomplishments and has a persistent internalized fear of being exposed as a “fraud”. Despite external evidence of their competence, those experiencing this phenomenon remain convinced that they are frauds, and do not deserve all they have achieved.

A person with Imposer Syndrome is running a a hardware script, and has accepted passively the beliefs of the software.

We are all unpaid actors in some giant script that we didn’t write.” – Kanye West.

Watch, Yes, We are Living in a Simulation.

How to Break Free from the Simulation.

Your mind has been programmed by people who don’t care about you. The government which wants you to obediently die in wars. The media which doesn’t care about truth.

Or maybe your mind was programmed by people who cared about you and didn’t know any better. The parents who did their best but were clueless. The teachers who tried but never had any idea what was happening in the real world.

The first step to freedom is recognizing:

Your sense of self or “I” is a creation – or what Anil Seth calls a hallucination – of your perceptions. The sensory information coming into the brain hasn’t changed at all. All that’s changed is your brain’s best guess at the causes of that sensory information, and that changes what you consciously hear….

We don’t just passively perceive the world. We actively generate it. The world as we experience comes as much from the inside-out as from the outside-in.

 

You can break free from the Simulation by rewriting the scripts in your mind, by rewriting the stories you believe, by believing in yourself.

The Truth about Hydroxychloroquine and Coronavirus

Published

on

Trump is recommending people look into using chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus. Trump is not a doctor. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are not approved by the FDA for treatment of coronavirus.

Most doctors are using chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine off label for coronavirus treatment, some are using it prophylactically to protect themselves.

OFF LABEL USE is what is missing from media coverage on Trump and hydroxychloroquine. Reporters either don’t know what off label use is, or they are pretending not to know because ORANGE MAN BAD.

Here is what the FDA says in its guide on the off label use of drugs:

From the FDA perspective, once the FDA approves a drug, healthcare providers generally may prescribe the drug for an unapproved use when they judge that it is medically appropriate for their patient.

If you read any article about chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, and the article omits OFF LABEL USE, then you are being hoaxed by the media.

P.S. The man in Arizona who died from using chloroquine did not obtain chloroquine from a doctor. He used fish tank cleaner. (Yes, really.)

The couple unfortunately equated the chloroquine phosphate in their fish treatment with the medication —known as hydroxychloroquine — that has recently been touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19, which has infected more than 42,000 people in the U.S. and killed at least 462.

Reports that the man died after “listening to Trump’s advice” are dishonest.

The Arizona man’s wife is also a Democrat donor.

Wanda donated to the PAC 314 Action Fund, which has called itself the “pro-science resistance” to the White House.

Additionally, Fox News has reviewed a Facebook page apparently belonging to Wanda, which was first identified by the Twitter user Techno Fog. “Your psycho prez is in [t]own, are you going to see him?” Wanda wrote on Facebook on Feb. 19, by way of wishing a friend a happy birthday. Trump was in town at a rally in Phoenix, Ariz., on that day.

She administered the chloroquine to her husband. This wife was the only person who hates Trump who listened to Trump, by giving her husband chloroquine-based fish tank cleaner.

Nothing suspicious about that at all.

P.P.S. If you like this post, you’ll love Hoaxed Movie. Watch it here today.

Is “Kung Flu” the latest Media Hoax?

Published

on

Several White House reporters confronted Trump regarding his decision to call the coronavirus (or COVID-19) the China Virus.  One reporter asked him about a White House administration official who is alleged to have called the coronavirus Kung Flu.

When the reporter was asked the name of the official, the reporter said she didn’t know.

The original claim regarding Kung Flu comes from CBS reporter Weijia Jiang. On March 17th, she Tweeted:

This morning a White House official referred to #Coronavirus as the “Kung-Flu” to my face. Makes me wonder what they’re calling it behind my back.

Ms. Jiang has not identified the official.

One reason could be because this official does not even exist.

Under American defamation law, you can lie all you like.

You can’t lie about a person by name.

If no White House official called the coronavirus Kung Flu, or if there is some important context missing, then Jiang could be sued.

You can watch the Kung Flu exchange in this video here:

The Stafford Act Text Message Announcing an Emergency Quarantine is a Hoax

Published

on

By now you or someone you know has received a hoax text announcing martial law. With some minor variations, the texts all read the same:

  • In 48 to 72 hours the president will evoke what is called the Stafford act. Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing. The president will order a two week mandatory quarantine for the nation. Stock up on whatever you guys need to make sure you have a two week supply of everything. Please forward.

 

The National Security Council issued a rare public statement warning the public that the Stafford act text was a hoax.

How can you tell the Stafford Act Text is a Hoax?

Even if you refuse to accept the NSC’s word on the matter, the text message has some telltale signs of a hoax.

First, the text promises secret insider knowledge. “Just got off the phone with some of my military friends in DC who just got out of a two hour briefing.” This is a vague enough proclamation that it sounds plausible.

Second, no specifics of these friends are given. Who are these friends? Why did they call this specific person?

Third, the hoaxers ask you to spread the message. Why would anyone acting in good faith want to incite a panic?

If an emergency quarantine were able to be declared, the plan would be Top Secret. No one’s friends would just get out of a briefing and start alerting people. THEY WOULD GO TO PRISON FOR LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.

If such an emergency plan were in the works and higher command wanted the story to get out, they’d leak it to a credible outlet. Not share chain-letter style text messages.

There’s also tradecraft involved in sharing classified information.

None of the telltale signs (and no I won’t share how to leak classified secrets here) were present in that alert.

UPDATE: Other outlets are now reporting that the Stafford Act text is a foreign disinformation campaign:

The Trump administration is alleging that a foreign disinformation campaign is underway aimed at spreading fear in the country amid the coronavirus pandemic, three U.S. officials said Monday. On Sunday, federal officials began confronting what they said was a deliberate effort by a foreign entity to sow fears of a nationwide quarantine amid the virus outbreak.

Agencies took coordinated action Sunday evening to deny that any such plans were put in place, as they tried to calm a nation already on edge by disruptions to daily life caused by the virus.
