  1. 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.
  2. 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....
  3. Yeah taking it literally is one option.... that the sun, moon and stars were literally created one day after the plants...
  4. 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/
  5. 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....
  6. 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.
  7. 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....
  8. 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.
  9. This guy folds notes and they seem to look like the twin towers at various stages of collapsing. At 7:50 - "I have led almost about 25 to 30 people to Christ when i've showed them this to interrupt their day." I found it to be interesting... though personally I don't believe in it...
  10. If your consciousness exists outside of a simulation you could "wake up" like near the end of this Rick and Morty video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=24&v=szzVlQ653as
  11. https://www.barna.com/research/most-american-christians-do-not-believe-that-satan-or-the-holy-spirit-exist/ "three out of ten [Christians] rejected the influence of supernatural forces (18% disagreed strongly, 10% disagreed somewhat)" So some liberal Christians don't believe there were literal demons who were put into some pigs.... they don't believe much of the Bible is literal history.
  12. I have come to believe that there is an intelligent force (behind a simulation) but like this quote from Futurama ("Godfellas" episode), I don't think I can 100% prove that God exists. "Bender, being God isn't easy......You have to use a light touch. Like a safecracker, or a pickpocket.....When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all." I think any evidence of an intelligent force can also be explained by coincidence, hallucinations or delusion. I think the Bible was partly guided by an intelligent force and some people interpret it in an all or nothing way (that it is 100% true or moral - or that it has no supernatural basis) I call this "The Bible Test"
  13. About "never go for your dream girl".... I think it is good advice....
  14. I just played a lot of "Bandersnatch".... it is an interactive video on Netflix as part of Black Mirror..... (you can also watch the endings on YouTube) To get a perfect score in the game you're making you actually need to kill and chop up your father! It was pretty clear that it wasn't real so I ended up doing that... but in the future I think games will be indistinguishable from reality so that would be dangerous to play games with plots like that. I like how some parts are really deep - and sometimes it breaks the fourth wall, etc. The character says he is being controlled by someone (you) and sometimes fights the decisions you make for him....
  15. It's strange because some evidence of a matrix could be in the form of paranoia or coincidence.....
  16. Here are part of the rules for the SimulationTheory reddit:
  17. I think we're in a simulation and virtual time travel is possible in a simulation.... (it might make some guesses when recreating the past) Also there is a concept of the conservation of information which means that there should be enough information to reconstruct the past (something like that) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No-hiding_theorem
  18. Is there a term for people who believe we're in a video game? It looks like "simulationist" is already an art term... A related website: https://lifesplayer.com/
  19. This is about the "block universe" where time travel is possible but all times exist eternally as a single entity. https://www.abc.net.au/news/science/2018-09-02/block-universe-theory-time-past-present-future-travel/10178386
  20. Apparently quantum physics can be retrocausal (the future can cause the past) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retrocausality See also "Feynman diagrams". I'm interested in time travel where nothing ends up being changed.... like Twelve Monkeys or Interstellar... I'm a big fan of time-loop movies (e.g. Groundhog Day)
  21. The Black Mirror TV show has dramatic episodes about future technology - including many about being in simulations.... I highly recommend the show.
  22. Thanks I've started to look into that... https://www.anthonypatch.com/mandela-effect-d-wave-s-boltzmann-machine-quantum-pollution I don't think that the Mandela Effect is related to the nature of reality... I think it involves chance and is a bit like this:
  23. It looks like quantum machine learning is possible: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_machine_learning See my previous post about machine learning...
  24. @kickaha BTW I don't think the simulation would explicitly simulate every single particle.... e.g. https://www.lifesplayer.com/flightsim.php In Flight Simulator 2020 it can go from blades of grass and leaves to up above the earth - and you can find your house because it generates a 3D model from satellite data. This game uses "machine learning"...
