Multi-Dimensions in Simulated Reality
"We are immersed in our learning of Four dimensions and are slowly becoming aware of a Fifth."
Here I will introduce new terms for our discussions.
Outside Reality and Inside Reality. Between the two is a gray area in which neither reality functions. We will call this gray non-functioning area the Void or Chaotic Nothingness. It is in constant flux, or motion, and has the Potential to become or to clump and adhere together in the formation of a Realm.
Let's take apart a dream. A dream is a simulated reality, it is a Realm. Inside the dream is Inside Reality. Outside the dream, in the physical world, is Outside Reality. Everything inside the dream is created inside the dream. The raw material for the dream - memories and external sensory stimuli - is processed and becomes the 'stuff' of the dream. The processing happens in that gray area that is neither the waking reality nor the dream reality. It is both and neither at once. Dreams do not function properly here, neither does waking reality. Yet the observer must pass through it to travel from one realm, or inclusive reality, to the other. In this gray area, everything of the Observer is stripped away except for a Sense of Presence that is carried across the threshold and into the realms. The Dream Self stays in the dream. The Other Self (of which we can know nothing) remains Outside Reality. The Sense of Presence is Awareness. Knowledge, or that which we can know, is made from the action of the Consciousness. The two of these working together form the Mind - a Sense of Presence with Knowledge of itself and its surroundings.
The Sense of Presence travels Outside and Inside Reality. This leads to a Divine Entanglement of Outside Reality and Inside Reality due to the window or the gate created by the Sense of Presence as it travels from one to the other. This Entangled Reality travels with the Sense of Presence but in a Potential State of Being, a dormant state of Existence which does not function in the Destination Reality or in the Consciousness. Many within the simulation or Inside Reality sense this entanglement and name it God, or Brahma and such. Some take it a bit further and suggest that the Sense of Presence must be coming from some Outside Reality; much in the same way we exist outside our dreams as well as inside them, but in an altered state of Perception or reception that does not allow it or us to function in both simultaneously.
The Sense of Presence is limited to one or the other. It is a focal point, not the entire entity which may have an existence both Outside and Inside Reality. Our focal point, the Sense of Presence, is what determines Inside and Outside Reality as far as we're concerned. Whichever one we focus upon is Inside Reality, that which we ignore is Outside Reality. The Consciousness is concerned with designations of Inside and Outside. The Sense of Presence has an Awareness of both Realities but can only 'know' what the Consciousness knows. The Consciousness becomes entangled with whatever Reality is focused upon, names it Inside Reality and ignores the other as Outside Reality. It takes its cue from Awareness.
"I don't think we're concerned whether this is a simulated reality or not. What we want to do is have more internal control over how it manifests. If we want to leave, we will simply die."
This is not a computer-based simulation, it is an awareness-based simulation. Awareness is the generator.
Awareness is not "in" us - we are appearing "in" Awareness. This is just like a dream in which we mistakenly identify only with a character in the dream rather than with the dreamer who is having the dream.
Awareness is the 'sense of presence' necessary for observing a simulation from within. That makes it a window to the outside, a Gate.
Simulation as Translation -
We have been taught that Matter is reality. What if it is not? What if a simulated reality was needed in order for the Mind to experience Matter?
What we call simulated could also be an adaptation so that we can experience an environment foreign to us. Perhaps it is not as fluid and variable as we may think. Perhaps it is a distillation which we play back after processing - a static, unchangeable sample, an extraction, a slice of outside reality that we slow down and separate into parts for study. We could be self-aware probes.
"If we do indeed exist within a simulated reality there are two possibilities. The first is that we exist within a simulation where all events have been decided and we are merely following a pre-determined series of these events. The second is that the reality in which we exist is composed of complex algorithms and equations which allow us to think for ourselves and let us evolve as the program runs its course. In the latter it is probable that the entity which is controlling or overseeing the program does not know what will happen in our reality."
Or it could be a combination of the two, a third possibility: a predetermined series of events in which the thinking process is left open-ended. A controlled experiment in the development and operation of the Consciousness.
Free Will / A Sense of Choice -
Free will would be easy to fake. The requirement is a sense of choice, not actual choice. One path with a sense, or Illusion, that there were many available.
Not every event would need to be predetermined, just enough of them to keep the simulation moving in a certain direction. These node points, being part of the simulated reality, could be sensed from within the simulation as being the Future.
Sample Points -
Certain entities within the joint simulation / consciousness experiment would be sample points. These entities would be the ones most likely to be affected by Divine Entanglement, develop an awareness of a connection with the outside, and the ones Inside Reality most likely to sense the simulation's 'unreality'.
Clairvoyance. Look but don't Touch -
Depending on the type of connection, it may not be completely severable, making it a two-way gate.
The Dreamer Dreamed, the Observer Observed -
There are two parts to a simulation. The simulation itself and the observer of the simulation, the one immersed in it but not a part of it. Like in a dream, there is the dreamer and the creations that exist within the dream as a part of the dream. The dreamer is immersed in the dream but is not a part of it. The dreamer may wake up inside the dream, but the dreamed people never will, at least so far they haven't. I have not yet had a dreamed person look at me from inside the dream and say, "This isn't real!"
It is not quite accurate, however, to say that the dreamer is not part of the dream because they are, but they are related to it in a special way, being both creator and observer. Within the dream they are the Observer; outside the dream, they are the Creator. Sometimes the Creator side awakens inside the creation and realizes it as such.
It may be an inevitable part of a simulation that given enough experience and awareness of the simulated reality, the observer "wakes" up while still inside it; much like a lucid dreamer can wake up inside a dream and know the experience as a dream state without a disruption to the flow of the dream.
Lucid Dream -
The creator wakes up inside the creation and is able to identify the created counterpart within the creation as distinct (though not separate) from the other parts of the creation and as itself.
