3 Reasons Why We Are Living in a Simulation
Despite simulation theory existing for thousands of years in various forms, one of the most compelling comments on the subject came just a few years ago in 2003 from philosopher Nick Bostrom. Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico. Every day and every night we conjure up vivid dreams, mental pictures, and crystal clear memories that we are certain we once experienced. There are many things about the universe we have not yet explained, but some scientists are starting to believe that the simulation theory works like a catch-all for things we have not yet figured out.

Is Our Universe Someone Else's Computer Simulation?
Linda Moulton Howe -- Emmy Award-winning TV producer and reporter, editor of the award-winning, investigative reporter for Coast to Coast -- opens up her investigations with human abductees and scientists about the possibility that our universe is somebody else’s computer simulation.

Look at my work on
Some people in the human abduction syndrome have reported that ETs describe our universe as a 3-D hologram projected from another dimension by a super [computer?] intelligence.

Quantum computer engineers and astrophysicists ask in scientific papers, “Are we living in a computer simulation universe?” On April 5, 2016, the Hayden Planetarium in New York hosted a debate on the question, “Is the universe a simulation?”

One of the panelists, James Gates, Ph.D., a theoretical physicist at the Univ. of Maryland said, “If the simulation hypothesis is valid, then we open the door to eternal life and resurrection and things that formally have been discussed in the realm of religion.”

Human abductee Michael Talbot wrote in his 1992 book, The Holographic Universe, about what he learned from a space alien.

Elon Musk isn't saying much, just speculating about probabilities and aliens.
Things are not what they seem. Wake up.
Samsara is unending in-and-of-itself, yet life is NOT eternal. Life is not eternal because it is radically impermanent, that is, hurtling toward destruction and coming to an end at every moment. What rearises or "resurrects" is similar but not identical, so it is not the "self" or unchanging "soul" as many say. It certainly seems that way -- until it is analyzed by the Fourfold Setting Up of Mindfulness to gain direct insight into what is really going on: Form (body), feeling (sensation), mind (consciousness), and mind-objects are all impersonal, impermanent, and disappointing (i.e., incapable of fulfillment). Consciousness -- which is an impersonal process devoid of an abiding "self" -- goes on after death, that is true, but the "resurrection" is not the same as what was before. "Self" has not actually survived death nor even the vanishing that took place the moment before this moment.
