what do you guys think??
could this be real? i like the opinion of the guy at the end as well, computers simulating a conscious reality
I just have one question. What the fuck? :) This actually doesn’t remind me of The Matrix as much as an episode from The X-Files. A boy was receiving such a code from his TV and they thought it was from ALIENS!
I love this one: “I can give you technical references that almost nobody in the world can understand.” Haha.
Yeah I don’t think anyone on this site is going to be capable of translating this to the consensus’ math understanding.
I had a dream that is absolutely consistent with what that last guy said about us being simulations of ancestors. In that dream the decendants of the actual ancestors are experiencing history through us. This is odd.
Its kind of like if you wanted to shoot an electron to a specific point. You don’t know all the places its going to go on its trip there, but with the code, you can be assured it will end up in that final spot. It makes sense. As far as DNA goes, perhaps the same idea works in many different ways. We have DNA corrections inside us to maintain oursleves, but who is to say the galaxy is perfect at all times? Particles have a tendency to do things they aren’t ‘supposed’ to, which is why the twists in the galaxies arms actually push the particles back into position. Micro creates macro, macro keeps micro in check. AND/OR macro creates micro, and micro keeps macro in check. It doesn’t mean that the universe literally uses codes, but it means that there is math to show HOW a Universe keeps itself maintained. Think about how often your DNA fixes itself, and thats just in YOU. How small are you? How much life is there? Now imagine maintaining the entire Universe.
It sounds like Neil DeGrasse Tyson is the other voice in that discussion with Dr. S. James Gates, Jr. Cool =D
The part at the end where Sam Harris is talking about the probablity of being in a simulated universe is more likely because real universes would become out-numbered by virtual or simulated univereses, seems reasonable.
This reminds me of a DMT trip report I read, While during someone’s DMT expereience they encountered an entity and that entity told them that this existence wasn’t real, it was a simulation of their own existence and they were simulating the evolutionary steps of their own origins to observe or remember how they came to be to the point they were at. Also the entity told this person that it was this persons guide inwhich the entity lived its simulated life through.
Interesting to say the least.
I had a post kinda of related to this topic, if anyones interested.
It is said that binary is the universal language, computer codes are binary. Binary has simply become more literal in the sense of it being the universal language. The existence of a binary code is not evidence there is a computer.
I think that beside this, it is perfectly plausible that technology exists on Earth, of our own creation, that is so sophisticated that it has interfered with whatever the hell these guys were doing.
The fact that quantum physics claims that there are discrete levels of energy, like 1 cuanta, 2 cuantas but not 1,75 of a cuanta, makes me seriously consider the fact that this reality is simulated. It seems that this reality is digital and not analog.
“Whenever someone mentions 10th dimension I immediately see 1 and 0. God is a system. The system is binary. Like two stars spiraling around each other. It represent pure connection. Probably pure connection with that “nothingness”. Maybe the nothing is absence.” Quoting Joseph from “God=Source=…”
Is it any coincidence that people fall in love with another person to create a binary system? Why aren’t there more relationships between 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 people? Why 2? and from 2, you get 3, and from there on, you can go to infinity, but its takes two! and in the very least 1, maybe even 0! But, after 2, from 3 on, its just pointless to speculate. In fact, 2 might even be pointless to speculate. Don’t you really need just 0 and 1 to explain everything?
the actual video with the pictures he was showing is here:
the relevant part starts at about: 1:01:00 (about one hour in)
here is his paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/0806.0051v1
you can find a good discussion about it on reddit.com/r/askscience
The fact that the images he is talking about, that are representations of the equations of super string theory, were likely created by feeding the equations into a computer in the first place, poses explainations. The fact that a computer tech back in the 1940’s discovered the most efficient code to be used to order computers could simply mean that he accidentally came across a naturally occuring obvious fact about the universe. To be suprised about this is basically saying that it is strange that it turns out that the universe is more like science than we were led to believe.
