What if I'm the only human being, and everyone else is simulated?

Ever thought that about yourself? o_o

Loosen up. The ridiculousness has escaped you. If it has to be explained the silliness of it all is lost. Why so serious? You read like a person who takes themselves too seriously.

What if when you go to sleep, you are taken every single night and tortured to the point of insanity, memory wiped and placed back in your bed non the wiser the next morning?

It does not only affect the media, it has affected the bible, well known brands, car makers, old movies/tv shows,

A LOT has changed.

That's all commercial/media related though.

What I mean is, events aren't seemingly different, wars, people in power, etc.

If there is some sort of deception or ...making E.T say home phone instead of phone home isn't concerning me.

The Bible, it has been altered for most of it's existence. I understand the books of revelations is now simply known as revelation. That's an edit for the times, not one without explanation.

I don't buy it.

People trying to alter time and minds need to do more than change the out come of a Sinbad movie.

I do not think it is a conspiracy but a side effect of CERN smashing particles together sometimes effectively revealing other "timelines" quantum physics does point to a matrix type universe and there are infinite dimensions that exist along side ours as we see it.

D'WAVE computers may also play a part in this.

I am a firm believer in what a lot of people cannot begin to even entertain a thought about,

"Things in this world are only as we make them in our minds"

another example in that if "we are made of atoms then we are not physical beings as we perceive things"

Strange and exciting times ahead as we uncover more and more

I believe in many things. Typically labeled "conspiracy" so sheep condescend. I agree with the atom theory. If you really look into it, how is something that is 99.4% empty, creating a universe?? Electrons. Bull****. An invisible force is bringing together and filling in the empty parts of the atom? This is plausible but the same people laugh at the idea of God. No one knows anything, but everyone knows everything.

The Hologram Principle doesn't make sense to me in that there are too many things that don't correlate with a hologram. Thought, physical pain, emotion, etc.

Vibrations create the illusion of solidity....Nick Cage...Sorcerer's Apprentice.

The earth's magnetic field, our body's main organs eg. brain and heart magnetic fields are being bombarded by negative energy.It's called feedback from the countless things we do on a day to day basis without even realizing it.When a thought happens it carries a certain amount of emotion and a multitude of feeling, but varying in magnitude...for every action there's a reaction...these vibrations interact with one another.

Control the interaction between all those emitters and receivers, you run the board.Electricity carries spirit energy also.It wasn't just lingering in the universe for billions of years before us, just so we can power our Pcs.

None of us sees colors same way. None of us hears same sound as someone else. None of us feels what others feel.

Every single person lives in reality of his/hers own. Because what we perceive is actually construct of our mind based on our inputs.
There are blind people who think that they see...

What does it matter if this is computer simulation or world made of physical particles. We as well may be physical experiment in some gigantic petri dish.
It only matters that we perceive, we feel and we have freedom of choice.

I see your point. But spiritually, that means we have no decent after-life to look forward to since we aren't "real". That bothers me. I'm not speaking of Heaven. Just an after-life in general.

If we are simulated, how do we know we have freedom and aren't just on a train track, a path already set for us. We may feel it's a choice but it's really a digital path already programmed for us to follow. Like a scripted video game.

EDIT: And I just want to thank you guys for being able to have a civil conversation about this. Nice we all don't have to agree, but can still enjoy conversation and respect each other.

Agreed great convo.. kudos to all

As for after-life, I have always felt that my consciousness is not really apart of me but the real me, guiding this physical experience we call life

I have a few spiritual/weird encounters in my life to realise not all is as it seems to be

I think that when you dream you go of to a different space, time, continuum. And when you wake up and think hmm I liked that dream, it becomes a contender for a new life when you die. Or the opposite. Maybe when you die you got so many choices of a new life.

I belive your soul flies of to new planets and lives on when you die.

Stories about soul. If you could track their source, you would realize that no human being truly experienced anything that could hint soul in last few hundreds years.

Do not expect your existence to continue by other means than fragments of genetic memory you give to your children.
And I say it even through I had my share of weird stuff too.

If you are helpful or harmful to other people, it should come from you, not from some faith in God or promise of afterlife. Then you are expressing your choice.

Secondly you are free to toss coin for every decision you are about to make. That's how you can experience: "giving up on your choice", but even then if result of toss is too negative, you will still ignore it and experience your free will.

And then there is thing about simulation: If we were some kind of restricted simulation without having ability to chose for ourselves, there would be no reason to run it. It would be much more resource efficient to reduce complex iterative systems into more 'simple' sets of integrals representing each system with many variables.
