Am sure everyone realizes that the title is a Shakespeare quote 😀
Or maybe a better analogy is:
We exist in this huge holodeck?
I used this analogy last century long before “The Matrix” came out :
Understandable that I received numerous phone calls telling me to watch this movie.
(just realized that The Matrix came out more than 20 years ago — am definitely old –feels-like yesterday)
The idea wasn’t an original one:
It came from Star Trek Next Generation:
Season six “Ship In A Bottle”.
I also know that if we don’t have a concept for something it doesn’t exist for us.
I presume that most humans search for a meaning to life.
I don’t know the answer:
I’m clairvoyant not omniscient: 😛
(and my concept of reality is limited by my programming)
I would love to adhere to Ahimsa:
but it is impossible in this holodeck.
I believe everything survives what we call death:
It has nothing to do with a god concept:
I asked “clairvoyantly” ( of my guides)
about life and death:
I was “asked” “Can you conceptualize no linear time”
When I answered “NO”
I was told that “they” couldn’t explain.
The incident that convinced me that clairvoyance was a reality happened at work.
I was a student nurse in an institution for people with an intellectual disability
We later were re-classified:
The “powers that be” finally realized that people with an intellectual disability are not sick.
I was washing dishes with a male staff nurse.
We didn’t have kitchen hands in those days.
Kym was six feet tall and rather heavy set and had longish blonde hair.
A man (deceased) flashed in
(When I “see” or “hear” they flash in a fraction of a second as if they are out of phase.)
He had Kym’s high forehead and similar features but wore a suit with a crepe ribbon and a cross and had a short back and sides haircut and dark hair.
I asked Kym if his father was a minister. He asked me why and initially I would not answer.
I eventually told him what I saw and Kym told me that it was his uncle. He asked me what denomination his uncle was.
I did not know.
After Kym left the kitchen I asked his uncle, whom I could no longer “see”, what he had died of. The words were that fast all I could make out was “sclerosis”.
Because we were with the intellectually disabled I thought “tubular sclerosis?” Then I realized it must be multiple sclerosis.
When we were having a tea break Kym told me that his uncle died of multiple sclerosis.
I was amazed and said that his uncle had “told” me this!
Kym said “Get more”!
I informed him that I couldn’t.
But I “saw” panama hats and monkeys.
I said “He was a missionary in South America”
Kym said “Yes”.
I then saw masks and a jungle and said he was also a missionary in New Guinea.
Kym told me this wasn’t so.
When Kym came to work the next day, he said that his mother had confirmed that her brother was a missionary in New Guinea.
This showed that I wasn’t just reading Kym’s mind.
