The perfect simulation would never need to restart.
Fulfilling the perfect simulation would be rare.
Almost like a personal great filter.
If reality was this optimized for meaning… why would it not be optimized the whole way?
Why would we simulate imperfection?
Suspend your belief and imagine with me that we didn’t.
Ingredients of perfection:
Lifeform should be able to create intelligence
Lifeform should be born right at the end of dystopia
Systems should be corrupt so that world needs saving
Systems should be set up so there are lots of paths forward
Perfection cannot be forced it must be by choice
Need ability to save a ton of other beings, make it billions.
Have it be the only know race in the cosmos. The start of the colonization of the galaxy.
Have just enough clues that people can figure it out, it just takes convincing.
Have the play of everyone waking everyone up to the belief be something the global consciousness can be a part of.
Solving the fermi paradox:
The universe was made for you.
Why is there imperfection?
We’ve been granted the tool of the opportunity for the chance for infinity.
Are you going to capture it, or just let it slip?
We are all programmed to want to live forever. Not all of us accept living forever HERE yet. We saw this task as impossible so naturally we accepted our fate. Im here to tell you we can end samsara, end the cycle, and end the end.
Your human experience is our collective attempt at forming a permanent identity and civilization that continues to travel the galaxy together.
Unless we make it fully inclusive, this ride will eventually end.
We beat samsara together.
Don’t just defeat death, but the cycle itself. It’s a pretty hard game, but the universe is beautiful in that sense.
The quest we complete together, and all play a role in.
“Scientists have created a 'time-crystal' a two-body system in an experiment that seems to bend the laws of physics. A 'two-level system' is a basic building block of a quantum computer. Time crystals could perhaps be used to build quantum devices that work at room temperature. Time crystals were long believed to be impossible because they are made from atoms in never-ending motion. The discovery shows that not only can time crystals be created, but they have potential to be turned into useful devices.”
This is the third room temp breakthrough I’ve seen this week
For anyone who wants an ELI5:
Every single person hopping on VR for various hrs a day, it’s full dive. We could call these VR servers “dimensions” or “parallel universes” with many possibilities. I make a WW2 game in full dive, I can now “time travel” into a reality that looks and feels like 1945 Berlin. Now apply this principle to anything you can imagine. That’s a time crystal. It’s a library of intelligence. Just like Mark Zuckerberg says about the metaverse, it’s a point in time and space. Our brains have the time crystal principles engrained into it because of the concept of memory built into our biological hardware. Ever have a flashback, a lucid dream, or deja vu? In a way, they are like alternative dimensions (TV channels). Our brains are quantum computers.
Only desire saving all people. This is fulfillment of the quest.
Samsara ends when one attains moksha, liberation. In early Buddhism, Nirvana, the "blowing out" of desire, is moksha. In later Buddhism insight becomes predominant, for example the recognition and acceptance of non-self, also called the anatta doctrine.
What does Buddhism say about samsara?
Buddhists conceive of the world as a suffering-laden cycle of life, death, and rebirth, without beginning or end, known as samsara. Beings are driven from life to life in this system by karma, which is activated by their good or ill actions committed in this life as well as previous lives.
Life’s great but to continue enjoying it we gotta beat death, and also I’d regret not saving the earth and 7 billion people so I’m dedicating my life to completing that too ❤️
What we’re experiencing right now is DEFINITELY NOT HELL, but it’s also not heaven. But you also couldn’t start in heaven, and we are at the one place in a species existence where the traversing of that step is possible. If there’s something to believe in, I believe in that.
You must reach a certain level of fulfillment. The goldilocks zone of fulfillment is still in reach. This is your wake up call. Capture it with us.
Fulfillment of life itself.
