Out of more than four billion residents of the Planet Earth who believe in some kind of religion, how many have absolute faith that life does not end when people die but it moves on to the next phase, effectively viewing death as gateway to the Hereafter?

Not all for sure, else they would never commit sins and transgress while they are alive. Why? Because it makes all the sense. Take the example of a multi-phased test where you prepare for the next level knowing that your final result will be the sum total of all the marks that you obtain in different parts of the test, that basically shows how you perform overall in all the grades.

If you are confident that the next phase will never occur then you won’t really care about the phase you are in, and about your performance etc. On the contrary, if you have some information that the next stage may take place after a while, you will do some preparation just to be on the safe side. However, if you have unwavering conviction that the next level will begin soon then you will prepare well and will try your best to score the maximum marks.

Some people have no faith in life after death but they set high moral standards for themselves, hence they perform at their best from an ethical perspective.

If somehow the next phase is clearly exposed to participants, like if they can see it clearly say through a glass door then there will be very few who would not try to score good marks, most will. In that case the percentage of believers will increase substantially, coming close to one hundred percent.

But isn’t it what happens in this world as well? We know where we are going to land if we do this or do that, or take this route or another. There are variables that may distort the expected outcome but barring any exceptions, the journey more or less takes people to their anticipated destination within the given constraints.

Take the example of a computer game. The one who has designed it can see the game and all the characters that he had created but can the characters see him?  Of course not, but then how can the characters see him? well, only if the designer wants so, but how? by creating exceptions, either for one, more or for all of them. In that case the video game will be of the highest standards where the characters will have an advanced level of artificial intelligence.

Now imagine the programmer creates and launches the newer, final and most powerful version of the same game where the characters can actually watch him in real time while he always saw them….

Is that possible? Why not. It depends on the Creator, whatever He wants.

The question however arises that without the programmer launching the most powerful version, how can the participants of the existing simulated game know for sure that the final destination is right ahead after the tests will be over, and that their respective positions there will be based on the total marks they score in the test.

Well, some of the points below should convince people that they are actually living in a highly advanced and complex simulation, and that the next version is due and certain;

  • Presence of physical laws in the Universe and their sustainability. Without those laws in place, there would be total chaos and nothing will exist as is.
  • The mathematical precision with which the Universe has been created and the immaculately coordinated movements of the celestial bodies.
  • Common observation that instincts are codes assigned to different species (participants). They can't just be random or automatically copied. That assumption doesn't make sense.
  • The observation and understanding that creation is not random but deliberate.
  • Observation that systems are created by designers who maintain and upgrade them.
  • Observation that systems are by no means created by accidents.
  • Observation that accidents lead to death, chaos, disorder and decay.
  • Observation that creation leads to life, harmony, order and development.
  • Observation that patterns signify clear messages that lead to forecasts like weather and election predictions.
  • Observation that patterns point to a sophisticated architecture based on rules of mathematics.
  • Observation by some that numbers have meaning, suggesting coding and programming logic, and that this all being a simulation is a distinct reality.
  • Possibility that there are multiple simulations running in parallel. Or may be there is only one in which we exist?
  • Observation that Nature makes optimum use of her resources, then why are there so many planets in the Universe with their generators (stars) in place but only one of them has life?
  • Observation that if there are billions of planets then there might as well be many simulated worlds, the residents of which may not be aware of each other.
  • Possibility that the other planets will be inhabited in time.
  • Observation that the participants (characters) of a simulated game see massive distances which they cannot cover in their allotted timeframe (Lifetime), whereas for the programmer it is simply a matter of a click to place them billions of light years away?
  • Observation that sounds and images are recorded and captured on to gadgets invented recently, but are they stored somewhere else as well if not recorded and captured by participants…. perhaps yes.
  • Will we ever be able someday to retrieve those messages and images? Possibly yes.
  • Observation that sixth sense exists. But what it really is? Becoming aware of the events when they get closer before coming into existence?
  • Observation stemming from the previous assumption that all which is around us and beyond might be interconnected, part of the bigger simulation.
  • Observation that the Universe is so massive, well, can it be extremely small? Depending on how it is viewed and who is viewing it?
  • Observation that some dreams come true. What are dreams?
  • Are dreams just momentary escape from the time and space barrier, outside the simulation for a while, so is the sixth sense which enables us to see beyond?
  • Observation that time is relative. Is it just an illusion?
  • Is time our journey or an entity to measure our movement?
  • If time is just a movement or a measure, then it should end at some point, at the destination when the journey concludes?
  • If time ends then we will effectively become immortals?
  • If we are characters like any other characters of a video game then there is a massive difference. We grow physically and evolve spiritually and mentally unlike the characters of any game we may think of. We are constantly evolving and have the power to make changes, free will. So, with control and discretion, we are accountable and that asumption makes perfect sense. That observation also denotes a definite purpose for the creation of the Universe.

Are we real, palpable? Perhaps we are. Perhaps not, just the characters of a simulated game infused with artificial intelligence, trying to define and comprehend our realm of reality. If we are only characters then the programmer has incredible powers, unimaginable knowledge and unfathomable control which is simply beyond our sanest comprehension, at least at this time.

If these points make any sense to you then be humble and submit to the Creator, and last but not least, stop worrying about death as it is nothing but a mere exit to the next world, possibly our ultimate destination.

Cheers!!
