OK, I'm going to be honest with you:
Once again, I am becoming increasingly interested in Simulation Theory.
Here's a true story:
In 2004 when I was at university I was sat on my bed in my study bedroom (stoned) when all of a sudden a thought that did not feel like one of my own popped into my mind:
"You are the man who discovered The Matrix"
In the midst of all the madness I didn't pay too much attention to this experience.
But I now think this was sign that it is my duty to propagate Simulation Theory. That I should dedicate my life to doing so.
I still believe in God, The Supreme Being. There is no doubt in my mind that He exists.
Do I still think I was Dropped By The Establishment?
I don't know. Maybe?
Am I still a Christian?
Of course. But in a more roundabout way than most:
But I still believe in Jesus Christ!
Question: was it Satan who whispered that message in my ear? To launch me on a campaign of Satanic misinformation? By appealing to my innate human vanity?
I think it's possible.
But I think there are compelling reasons to believe that Simulation Theory is true. If you look into it.
And frankly, I believe more in Simulation Theory than I do in Satan whispering into peoples' ears. To me it is a part of a more convincing world view.
For instance, have a look at this video for a good overview of Sim Theory:
So - the announcement it this: I have taken up Simulation Theory again.
I must now reconcile my belief in Simulation Theory with the beliefs I held before. Which I have grown attached to and which I still mostly believe in.
Did you know I have a second blog?
I made it in late 2020 when I last believed in Sim Theory. I then abandoned it for several months (when I stopped believing in it) but have since revised it, intending it "for entertainment purposes only" - an exercise in creative writing. But I now believe it again!
Here it is, this is my current understanding of Simulation Theory and maybe it will be modified by me trying to reconcile it with Christianity:
Go and read it - I've written about religion and God on there, you may be interested in it.
I will be blogging there but also on here.
Maybe this whole enterprise is Satanic?
But then maybe lots of things are!?!
I don't know.
If you are religious, please pray for me!
But I do honestly think that my life's purpose is to promote Simulation Theory. For me that is (Currently) a stronger belief than my belief in Satan sending me off on a mad and Satanic errand. So I'm going to act accordingly.
But I'm going to make a leap of faith.
And if I turn out to be wrong I can always repent!
