Truth Cypher: Chapter 1 – The Simulation

We discuss Elon Musk’s computer based reality simulation. Musk is way off but the metaphor is spot on and inspired the book and podcast.

Elon Musk answered a question about whether we live in a computer simulated reality (reality simulation).

“The strongest argument for us being in a simulation, probably being in a simulation is the following: 40 years ago, we had pong, two rectangles and a dot,” Musk said. “That is what games were. Now 40 years later we have photorealistic 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. And soon we’ll have virtual reality, augmented reality, if you assume any rate of improvement at all, the games will become indistinguishable from reality.”

He continues.

“Even if the rate [of technological advancement] drops by a thousand from right now—imagine it’s 10,000 years in the future, which is nothing in the evolutionary scale. So given we’re clearly on a trajectory to have games that are indistinguishable from reality and those games could be played on a set top box or on a PC or whatever and there would be billions of such computers or set top boxes, it would seem to follow the odds we’re in base reality is one in billions,” Musk said. “Tell me what’s wrong with that argument. Is there a flaw in that argument?”

And finally of interest, Musk says this.

“There’s a one in billions chance [we’re in] base reality,” he said. “I think it’s one in billions. We should hope that’s true because otherwise if civilization stops advancing, that could be due to some calamitous event that erases civilization, so maybe we should be hopeful this is a simulation. Otherwise, we will create simulations that are indistinguishable from reality or civilization will cease to exist. Those are the two options.”

Musk’s simulation theory is based on Nick Bostrom’s

paper titled “ARE YOU LIVING IN A COMPUTER SIMULATION?” http://www.simulation-argument.com/simulation.html

I believe there are crucial, transcendent truths embedded into Musk’s thinking. I also simultaneously believe Musk is wildly off the mark. Musk is musing that a transhuman, Matrix-like simulated reality is a best-case scenario for the species. He’s also saying there’s a one in billions chance we’re not already in it. I contend that the simulated aspect of reality is an eternal, built-in, pre-existing feature of reality. That’s in direct contradiction to Musk’s technological add-on simulation to base reality. In other words, base reality is like a simulation, but not a computer generated one.

Musk touches on another massive and crucial point. He doesn’t even seem to know it. He says, “We should hope [the simulation is] true because otherwise if civilization stops advancing, that could be due to some calamitous event that erases civilization, so maybe we should be hopeful this is a simulation…” The rebuttal – or debunk – to his theory is encoded right there in his words. Calamity. Cataclysm. Catastrophism. It’s also (I believe) a key to understanding what he might understand as the game-like computer program he thinks is running the reality simulation “we” collectively experience.

I confess I’m no gamer. But I’m old enough to have played a version of Pong on Atari and graduated up to Super Mario Bros on Nintendo (and a few more advanced systems in successive years, but it’s not important). Games are coded reality simulations. If you lose the game, it ends…but you always get to start over. The same applies if you win. In nearly every game there are levels. We can use game levels as a metaphor for the world we find ourselves in right now. We are in a level. Even if we have no direct memory of prior levels, we are certainly not in level one. We actually may be at the final level of the game. It’s not a given that we will win the game. If we lose, we might get to start over. But that’s not a given either.

Truth Cypher: Chapter 1 - The Reality Simulation

Later thoughts:
I become more convinced of the simulation metaphor the more I study this. In computers, my understanding is that randomness does not truly exist. So it is with our reality simulation. Synchronicities and coincidences, even things “just working out” lead us to the game-like nature of reality. To understand the reality simulation is to realize that right action is the way to play to manifest positive effects in the “game”. A nihilist might believe there is no meaning or purpose, but this is self-defeating ideology. We must believe in higher purpose, in reality simulation, in right action, in morality, without knowing materially that the “game” really exists. In essence, we must do what is right without any promise of reward. To have knowledge of reality simulation is irrelevant. The way to play the game of life is the same regardless. Preston Gibbs has done fantastic work demonstrating how astrology and Tarot are connected to the simulation. Please listen to his interview with Greg Carlwood on the Higherside Chats. This reinforces my idea that “mythology is technology” (I *think* I came up with that). The reality simulation can be better understood by studying works that remain from the past such as holy books and Tarot. I believe astrology might be the greatest technical cypher to decoding what is going on in this universe.

I also had some thoughts about how consciousness and seance mediums can work in a technical sense which may have some relevance. https://youtu.be/BMD2Mjc7A4A

Reality Decoder: Truth Cypher – Preface & Commentary

Truth Cypher is a guide to decoding reality. Why is reality and being so preposterous? What could be going on here? For the first episode we read the preface and add commentary.

Truth Cypher
Decoding a Base Reality Where Conflicting Events are Simultaneously True

Download latest draft: http://mediumdigital.com/truth-cypher/

Preface text:
I originally called this book Synthesis before the writing of it revealed a more descriptive title. Synthesis is the genre I am working in. Artist would be an appropriate description of my background. I am biased towards the right brained, intuitive way of being. Professionally I work as a designer, which is a discipline that merges the analytical with the creative to communicate in media. The idea for a work of Synthesis came to me from hearing Randall Carlson and Graham Hancock on the Joe Rogan podcast. Neither are traditional specialists or experts in the archeological and scientific fields they valiantly challenge. Carlson is a builder by trade, Hancock is a journalist. On that podcast they described what they do in their books and research as synthesis. Synthesis is an empowering mode that gives uncredentialed people like myself a say in the tremendous issues of our times. As a creative person who has studied a wide array of unconventional topics I believe I’m well suited to synthesize information and offer an intuitive perspective that may have some value in how we collectively live our lives. I had a kernel of an insight. By exploring my own mind in the writing of this book that idea has been clarified for me – and for you. I am no expert. I am allowed to explore, come to conclusions and correct later. I invite you to do so. This book is a stop on the great journey. I make no claims that I am the holder of absolute truth when describing events that transpire. But as you’ll find in this book, I do posit that we all hold within us a universe that is true to us. The problem arises when billions of these true universes overlap and produce what we know of as consensus reality.

From Steemit:

Contained within Truth Cypher is a preposterous theory for an even more preposterous universe. In short, two (or more…many more) conflicting facts (or events) can be simultaneously accurate. That’s at least what I’m saying. If you allow this as a possibility, events that don’t make sense can be understood in a different kind of way. I believe this is useful. It’s helped me navigate the emotional rollercoaster of “fake news”, terror events, hyperbole and general hysteria of the day. I wrote a book(let). I’m going to be posting it here on Steemit in chapters. I’m also doing readings of each chapter with my own freeform podcast commentary to explain myself. I’ll be including those presentations as YouTube embeds which are sexed up with intuitive image selections in the videos.

More thoughts:
To get right down to it, I’m invoking quantum theory and the observer effect to demonstrate that reality does not unfold in a singular, objective way.  Multiple conflicting events are true! Maybe even infinity conflicting events are true. We navigate a multiverse by interacting with other sentients. Each sentient mind is a universe. This is revealed to you with every perspective you encounter. Maybe that seems like a big and wild theory, worth many numerous experiments and scientific demonstrations. Sorry, I’m not going to do that. You can look at your own lived experience to demonstrate that to you. That’s not the point of this project. This project is about how to live in this multiverse, your universe simulation, once you’ve realized what reality is.

If this is new information, Google for the Slits Experiment and contemplate what that means. An open mind is essential to receive new information. I probably won’t be saying anything actually new. Perhaps this mode of synthesis will be a new way to combine ideas as old as our species with more recent theories. We’re going to dive into simulation theory, debunk it, and then build on what’s usable. We’ll reference occult symbology. We’ll go deep into morality and Natural Law. We’ll decode the tiny spectrum of reality we’re supposed to believe is reality. We’ll introduce the Truth Cypher, your tool for navigating and simplifying what seems to be a very confusing realm. We’ll use the Truth Cypher to analyze events.

Do I believe what I’m saying? Well, I don’t know if we live in a multiverse actually. The Mandela Effect got me thinking that maybe we do. Even if I’m not sure about the multiverse, I do believe in the Truth Cypher. It works regardless of what kind of universe this is: simulation, flat earth, prison planet, hologram, whatever. The Truth Cypher will give you permission to free your mind from the consensual illusion, to consider that we could do more and be more. You will come to understand that what you believe is not anywhere near as important as what you do and how you act.  And of course, how we act co-creates the universe we find ourselves in it.

Take control. Break free. Wake up. Give yourself permission. Learn more. Contemplate morality. Red pill. Explore the mysteries. Unplug. All is mind. All is love. As above, so below. This is game theory for the real world.

Zach Hallas highlights disturbing human trafficking facts in leaked Podesta emails

Excerpt from: https://medium.com/@zachhaller/the-politics-of-lady-gaga-1866c0e5c6ab

Those who, like me, followed an untold number of rabbit holes exposed in Clinton campaign manager John Podesta’s emails may have worriedly searched the emails for Gaga’s name in Wikileaks’ database like me too. Fortunately, there’s nothing horribly incriminating other than her support for Hillary in general, which we of course already knew of.

>Gaga does, however, have a problematic link to performance artist and “Spirit Cooking” kook Marina Abramovic, who has further questionable ties to the wickedly corrupt Podesta. Since Wikileaks released Podesta’s emails, a number of alarming references have raised suspicion that Clinton’s associates may be connected to human trafficking operations. It’s an uncomfortable but very serious topic, and like the deaths of Seth Rich, Bheranton Whisenant Jr., and Joseph Rago, it requires a thorough and transparent investigation by the relevant authorities. The public cannot rest assured without knowing human trafficking is being policed as the crime that it is; there should be no hesitation to speak out for accountability particularly when children are in danger.

>As an independent writer and activist, it is not my job to investigate civil or criminal misconduct. The audience I have understands my approach to addressing the darkest matters is always to seek the light: That is, to speak out as a voter and resident who examines the accountability of our authorities and in calls for transparent investigations of questionable or illegal conduct where needed. Until a transparent investigation has been conducted by the appropriate authorities regarding the red flags in Podesta’s emails, we should demand one. Anyone on the fringe of this or any related scandal — Gaga included — should show leadership in owning up to any past wrongdoing for the sake of our kids, the sake of our future, and goodness’s sake, too.

Why was Jordan B. Peterson’s YouTube account temporarily restricted?

Google may never answer why. Jordan B. Peterson is a rising crusader against Marxism, SJWs and postmodernism who continues to gain steam helping people take responsibility for their own lives. His stand against government enforcement of gender pronouns in Canada raised his profile significantly in 2016. Among many activities he is decoding the Bible in his current lecture series “The Psychological Significance of the Bible Stories”, the latest of which had been temporarily blocked by YouTube. Dr. Peterson is educating people about the depths of the mind and and the serious dangers of collectivism.

Seymour Hersh confirms Seth Rich was Wikileaks source

The dangerous Russiagate narrative has officially collapsed. Mainstream media no longer publishes the research of Seymour Hersh, one of the greatest investigative journalists of all time. If they did, they would have to admit they have been outright lying to the public since the election and lose any remaining credibility.
