No my friend. I remember from before I came in here. I fought like hell and I lost.
Here if you want to read how I know.
These experiences could be called delusions or hallucinations or coincidences, etc. Many other people have stories of their own and some are contradictory. There could be many contradictory realities or you are 100% correct and people's other contradictory experiences are just delusions or hallucinations. If you told psychiatrists they'd probably think there is a problem with your perceptions rather than agree that you have knowledge about the true nature of reality. Well that's just my opinion.

No such thing as physical, there is no universe, there is no time. And I don't care what people that are part of that system say.... they were made by the system for the system.
How can you be certain that this is all true? Did you receive a message from some entity outside of this system?

The brain is not real.... nothing here is, except a number of us imprisoned inside this energy field.
Well I believe I'm in a video game (see Elon Musk quote). I think that besides the outermost physical universe everything involves limited time.

You must try to stop thinking of them programs as personalities. That definition is done by the system.
I thought if you want to call them "programs" instead of personalities then you should look into it in further detail - like how programs have memory requirements and memory can be shared, etc.46 minutes ago, Guardian said:
You can overcome them and take control. It is not hard at all.
I think this "you" is just another personality (or "program") - or do you think your will isn't based on the machinery of the brain?
I quoted Ken Keyes because it seemed relevant to your topic.
I think my thoughts, etc, are my own though I think it involves a collection of personalities. There are a few reasons why I believe I have many personalities or facets.

Remember who you are.
From Ken Keyes' Handbook to Higher Consciousness:Quote
"...As the watcher of the screen, you are perfect. The screen may be projecting a horrendous movie that is showing all kinds of pain and suffering - on the screen. Or the screen may reflect a happy movie that shows a beautiful sunset, a delightful sexual experience, or an enjoyable meal. But the essential you is the pure awareness that just watches the stuff go by on the screen of your life. Behind what you think you are - YOU ARE..."

Lol my friend. I didn't ask for the definition of them.
I asked how you came to those conclusions.
In the split brain experiments the brain hemispheres can't communicate internally - e.g. the left brain only has access to the right visual field and the right brain only has access to the left visual field. For a normal person the person is aware of both visual fields. Their awareness involves their working memory. i.e. it is about memory access.

I AM not sure about the private part. How do you know that?
It is a programming concept related to sharing memory. In some programming languages there can be "private" or "public" memory (and methods). Non-shared memory explains the split brain experiments.59 minutes ago, Guardian said:
You keep mentioning the hive. What do you mean by it? And how did you come to that conclusion?
It involves a group mind - an example is the Borg from Star Trek. I was working backwards from the split brain experiment - originally I think both hemispheres would have access to the same memory and so they work together pretty seamlessly.

No personalities. Those are programs running within the information field.
They are obviously malfunctioning.... from the construct point of view.
Overlapping in programs. Glitches and bugs....
Well my thoughts about memory would apply to the idea of programs... they can also be called "processes". They can share access to parts of the memory... or parts of memory can be "private" from other processes running on the computer.
I think the default state of our brain is a hive mind. The personalties often share the same memory so our identities can mix.
But sometimes they can separate....
e.g. in split brain experiments the left and right hemispheres lose access to each other's memories.
Another example involves the responsible personalities ("ego/superego") being booted off when drunk leaving them with no memory of the event. The impulsive personalities ("id") take over.
There could be corrupted parts of the hive mind like in Tourette syndrome when they get the urge to swear, etc. [it could involve a really frustrated personality.... a while ago I had a very strong urge to say the C word to my wife]
Also about split brain patients - where one half is atheist and the other is theist:
About "Why is there Suffering?"
Choosing to Suffer?
In scenarios like the Roy game and Alan Watts' dream thought experiment, the player chose to live a life involving suffering but forgot this during the game. They'd remember this choice when they woke up.
This is interesting....
Proposed by community ideas for new The White Rose stickers
I wanted to check out as many stickers as possible and found lots of unofficial ones here:

Which printer you using? I've got the Brother QL-700. Works perfect for me, but just curious what others use.
Hi I just wanted to read all of the stickers.... rather than print any out...
Thanks for the link. Their stickers, telegram, and instagram pages should use that link rather than just the telegram link. Their website has a shorter address and is more user friendly. Now that I have the stickers I have no need to keep trying to get telegram working.

White Rose is on Telegram, but if you visit their website then click on the top right corner 'stickers' you will arrive at the Telegraph links. That's how I found it originally....
What website do you mean? I can only find their Telegram page - and instagram....Quote
As for Telegram, you can control it completely. No phone number or contacts required to sync. It's all in the privacy settings and what permissions you don't allow. Just make a fake name and and anon username, but don't sync any contacts from phone. Plus set phone number to be viewable to no one.
I think it forced me to put in my phone number.... at least when I tried installing it on my Mac. But then the confirmation code didn't work (it keeps saying "Invalid code") - though it worked on my phone...
I don't see why they are trying to force me to use Telegram when a normal website could be used.... and they could just put a Telegram link on the website.... (if someone wants to use Telegram)
A normal website link would take you to the stickers and photos within a couple of seconds.... using Telegram can make it take minutes - and still not work properly (like Telegram on my Mac).

......Also, be sure to join or at least preview the Telegram group. There are heaps of images posted there of actual stickers placed in real world locations. This gives great ideas if you're not sure where to stick them. https://t.me/s/jointhewhiterose
The instagram link I gave in my original post is an easier way to see 80+ real world images. Like I said it was very problematic trying to join the Telegram group - it tried to make me share my contacts on my phone, etc. Though I was able to preview the Telegram group in my browser.
BTW it's interesting that your links are about Telegraph while White Rose is Telegram....
This is what I've written - basically I believe I'm in a simulation and an intelligent force ("God") exists but it won't make itself obvious to skeptics so that the simulation remains immersive and indistinguishable from reality....Quote
If we are in a simulation there would be one or more intelligent forces that created it and they (or other beings) might intervene from time to time.
Sometimes they might like players to be aware that they are intervening but not want this to be obvious so that the connection is more mysterious. The intelligent force could be playing “hide and seek” with the players.
Like “God” in a Futurama episode says, "When you [God] do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all”.
I think the intelligent force only intervenes in a way that skeptics could explain as involving coincidence, delusion, hallucinations, or fraud.
Though there are hints that our world could involve a simulation and an intervening intelligence, modern supernatural skeptics feel justified in their belief that the world is purely mechanistic and physical.
This way a belief in paranormal intervention is more about personal faith and reasoning rather than involving any type of scientific consensus. Though it remains possible that there can be paranormal intervention in a simulation.
Then there is the possibility that the Bible was guided by an intelligent force. It could be a test of the character of its readers - from the all-or-nothing thinking of fundamentalists and many atheists, to people who believe much of the Bible isn't historical while still believing in some kind of God.
Awesome! Thanks! BTW I used to be a professional programmer and it took me ages to figure out how to download it.... I had to click "DOWNLOAD NOW" but I was used to buttons like that involving ads....
Here's a direct link to the file:
I right-clicked on "DOWNLOAD NOW" and chose "Copy link address"
There are 100+ images in there.....
"The White Rose" has created heaps of COVID conspiracy memes that they courage people to print out and stick up around in public.
A lot of their stickers are shown on Instagram:
Otherwise it seems the only other way to get their memes is to join Telegram and visit their account. Apparently a file containing all of the memes is pinned to the top.... but I couldn't find it. I tried downloading Telegram for my computer but it said I had to download it on my phone. On my phone it wanted to have access to my phone's contacts, etc, which I denied. I had to get a code on my phone to activate the app. But I was unable to get Telegram on my computer running when I used the phone's code.
I think they should have had a website rather than forcing everyone to use Telegram.... that would make it much easier to download the file and they could have a gallery showing all of the memes as plain images that people could easily access.
So I'm wanting access to their file full of memes.....
From my book (free)Quote
When Herod the Great was alive
Jesus was alive when King Herod the Great was alive, but most scholars believe that Herod died in 4 BC, so Jesus must have been born in 4 BC or earlier.
Christmas was first celebrated on December the 25th in the year 336 AD when the first Christian Roman Emperor, Constantine, was ruling. The date was chosen because pagan festivals celebrating the sun were already observed then.
During the census
The census that Joseph and Mary travelled to Bethlehem for was when Quirinius was governor of Syria. The ancient historian, Flavius Josephus, who also mentions Jesus and John the Baptist, states that this census occurred 37 years after the battle of Actium. This occurred in September 31 BC, which means that the census, when Jesus was born in Luke, would have happened in 6 or 7 AD.
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.

....Does AI run the simulation universes?
I think so....Quote
If they do, for what purpose do we exist, for their entertainment? Kind of like God creating us in his image to make him happy?
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...Quote
Are we fulfilling the purpose the creators of the simulation intended or are we messing it up?
Does anything, does our life matter within this paradigm?
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.

....This digitized, fanciful, I’m a warrior in the matrix is just more manmade crap, no more useful than an Apple Watch. And denying you’re flesh and blood come out of this world.....
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...
Remember Who You Are
in Nature Of Reality
In the movie "A Beautiful Mind", the main character sees other characters that no-one else can. Are those people as real as everything else in the world?
Ken Keyes' books are actually more advanced than that I think... similar to your video his tenth pathway is "I am continually calming the restless scanning of my rational mind in order to perceive the finer energies that enable me to unitively merge with everything around me."
i.e. it is about stopping spoken thoughts.
When people claim to see or hear things that no-one else can the evidence points to it being a figment of their imagination rather than them accessing a real part of another aspect of reality....
