Out of more than the four billion residents of 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, viewing death as a gateway to hereafter?

Not all of them for sure else they would never commit sins and transgress while they are alive. Why? Because it makes sense, take the example of a multi-phased test where you prepare for the next phase knowingly that your final result will be sum of the marks obtained in different stages of the test, basically how you performed overall in all the grades. If you are confident that the next phase will never occur, you won’t really care about the phase you are in, 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 preparations just to be on the safe side. But if you have unwavering faith and absolute conviction that the next level shall begin soon then you will prepare well and will try your best to score maximum marks.

Some have no faith in hereafter 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 the participants, like if they can see it 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 that happens in this world as well? We know where we are going to land if we do this or that or take this route or another. There are variables that may distort the expected outcome but barring exceptions, the journey more or less takes people to their anticipated destinations within the given constraints.

Take the example of a computer game. The one who designs it can see the game and all the characters 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 the characters.

Now imagine the programmer creates and launches the newer, final and the most powerful version of the same game where 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 arises, 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 exam will be over and that their respective positions there will be decided based on the total marks they scored in the test. Well, some of the points below should convince people that they are actually living in a simulation and the next version is due and certain;

  • Presence of physical laws and their continuation. Without those laws in place, it would be total chaos and nothing will exist as is.
  • The mathematical precision with which the universe is formed and the relative movement of the celestial bodies.
  • Common observation that instincts are codes assigned to different species (participants). They can't just be random, automatically copied. That assumption doesn't make sense.
  • The creation is not random but deliberate.
  • Observation that systems are created by designers and are maintained and upgraded.
  • Observation that systems are not 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/ programming logic and that this all being a simulation, a distinct reality.
  • Possibility that there are multiple simulations running in parallel. May be millions of them?
  • Observation that Nature makes optimum use of her resources. Then why are there so many planets in the universe with only one having life?
  • Observation that if there are millions of planets then there might as well be millions of simulated worlds, the residents of which may not be aware of each other.
  • Possibility that the other planets will also be inhabited in time.
  • Observation that the participants (characters) of a simulated game see massive distances which they cannot cover in their given timeframe (Lifetime) whereas for programmer it is just a matter of a click to place them billions of light years away.
  • Observation that sounds and images captured are recorded on gadgets invented recently but are they stored somewhere else as well, if not recorded 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?
  • Observation stemming from the previous assumption that all that 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 a momentary escape from the time and space barrier, out into the simulation for a while, so is the sixth sense?
  • 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 movement then it should end at some point, at the destination.
  • 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. So, with control and discretion, we are accountable, and that asumption makes perfect sense.

Are we real, palpable? Perhaps we are. Perhaps not, just the characters of a simulated game, infused with artificial intelligence and defining 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 wildest imagination. 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 a mere exit to the next world, possibly our ultimate destination....

Cheers!!
