  1. From my book (free) When Was Jesus Born?
  2. I think this site is pretty good.... I'm going to try and learn from it... Life Is a Video Game—Here Are the Cheat Codes I'm not sure whether he talks about what happens after your life... after all I guess I can't be sure there is an after life.... I like how he says about how bad life can be.... there are a lot of famous thinkers that say things like "life is suffering", etc. He is very insightful.
  3. I think so.... I think the following quote from Alan Watts is relevant (replace "dream" with "play a video game"). let’s suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream, and that you could, for example, have the power within one night to dream 75 years of time, or any length of time you wanted to have. And you would, naturally, as you began on this adventure of dreams, you would fulfill all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure you could conceive. And after several nights of 75 years of total pleasure each you would say “Well that was pretty great. But now let’s have a surprise, let’s have a dream which isn’t under control, where something is gonna happen to me that I don’t know what it's gonna be." And you would dig that and would come out of that and you would say “Wow that was a close shave, wasn’t it?”. Then you would get more and more adventurous and you would make further- and further-out gambles what you would dream. And finally, you would dream where you are now. You would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living today. Alan Watts is saying that we originally were "God" (or had god-like abilities - to create any video game experience) but then we eventually gave up more and more of our abilities and self-awareness.... Checkout 24 seconds into this video - it is about a video game based on a somewhat normal person... When the game ends they remember their original identity... I don't have clear answers to your questions but I think it involves part entertainment and part personal growth or some other serious purpose.
  4. The simulation hypothesis explains why there could be an intelligent force that can interact with people... if our world is just physical then there doesn't seem to be any supernatural realm...
  5. I thought you could call the power behind a simulation a "higher power". They aren't necessarily perfect though. They would probably be AI-enhanced so could be aware of far more things than we are (we can only be aware of several chunks at once). Was David Icke influential in your belief in a simulation? In the "Bible Test" page one option is to believe the Bible is 100% true and moral no matter what (with a child-like faith) I think the intelligences behind our simulation would have huge amounts of "working memory" so we are far more limited than they are. But for now we don't really know much about what is beyond the simulation.... perhaps some memory of our former identity would return....
  6. Well part of the foundation is the simulation hypothesis... if this is a video game then an intelligent force exists - but I believe that the intelligent force's existence can't be proven to skeptics... I'm working on the theory why but it the title of this thread ... I think David Icke also believes in a simulation. "...the games will become indistinguishable from reality. ...there would probably be billions of such computers and set-top boxes. ...it would seem to follow that the odds that we're in base reality [NOT a simulation] is one in billions" - Elon Musk , an engineer worth about $100 billion....
  7. Well I used to take the Bible literally and believed the universe was created in six days.... Like some other creationists I went straight to atheism. It's a long story but eventually I came to believe in an intelligent force and like Elon Musk I think I'm probably in a video game.
  8. Well 42 is 6 x 7.... 6 is the number of man, 7 is the number of God... so maybe the meaning of life involves man and God....
  9. Yeah taking it literally is one option.... that the sun, moon and stars were literally created one day after the plants...
  10. linenum.com I think the number of lines in a symbol can have a spiritual aspect.... I noticed this at the end of the new ghostbusters movie.... in the middle of the picture below it says "XO" (kiss hug).... then I realised that applies to the first two symbols (as well as "noughts and crosses"). In the start of the first ghostbusters movie there are Zener cards.... Then I was thinking about related colors - and "energies" I wasn't very happy with the "four elements" (air, water, fire, earth) I think the following "energies" are better: Then I was working on Christian symbols (I am a very liberal Christian - I don't think Jesus really rose from the dead) Somehow the five "energies" fit completely! Even sun energy as I mentioned. BTW did people notice how the first four symbols basically match the PlatStation symbols? That is appropriate since I think life is a game.... (and noughts and crosses is a game too)
  11. I hadn't heard that one before... Note the "6" and "9" only looked like opposites for the past few centuries.... BTW I used to be a big fan of Kabalarians... they use numerology to try and find the meaning of a name https://www.kabalarians.com/
  12. I agree https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_More_Mr._Nice_Guy_(book) "Nice guy Syndrome", a condition in men who appear to be always nice and who try to avoid conflict at all costs. ... In other words, nice guys want approval, but don't think they deserve it I know many people's dark sexual secrets (including some "nice guys") - from child porn, to sexual contact with cats or dogs, to liking porn involving women sleeping or simulated rape, or using prostitutes... I was talking to a woman about the theory and she said a guy we both knew had "very dark" sexual secrets though she only gave examples of him putting a young girl's underwear in a bin and repeatedly saying that young girls were beautiful... The author is a therapist that has talked to thousands of "nice guys". He also has forums that are filled with fans who I guess would agree with the book including the quote.... Maybe you know many exceptions or maybe you haven't explored their dark side properly.... after all a lot of those people would deny their shocking secrets....
  13. I'm not saying all pedophiles are "nice guys". BTW I think that nice guy pedophiles don't necessarily abuse kids directly... though they might download child porn which does.
  14. Hi I find the following quote to be interesting... Dr Robert Glover, "No More Mr. Nice Guy" https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/9679681-i-have-found-nice-guys-to-be-prone-to-hidden These dark secrets can include pedophilia....
  15. From: https://www.lifesplayer.com/bible.php I think God doesn't want to be obvious.... though I currently think most of the Bible isn't historical, a relevant verse is John 6:44a - "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them" Currently I believe in an intelligent force that is part of a computer game but skeptics would say my experiences just involve coincidences... e.g. ".....I wanted to annoy God so I was reading a Gideon's Bible upside-down then soon after I was given my own sealed Bible - inside it was upside-down!..." In the science fiction comedy "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", the answer to "The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything" took millions of years for a supercomputer to calculate - and it was 42. While in a mental ward I realised that Connect 4 sets also involve 42 pieces. This special set was the first time I'd ever tried counting the pieces. There were exactly 42 pieces but there should be 21 pieces of each color because it is possible to have a tied game. I think "God" (an intelligent force) might have a sense of humor. It seems my life is not as balanced as it should be.
