From Elon Musk to mainstream and independent media producers, lots of people are weighing in on the nature of our reality.
Are we living in a simulation? Are there parallel universes? Is there a “Mandela Effect” altering mass memory, suggesting a connection between the Past, Present and Future? Is there any point to this world at all?
I don’t pretend to have the answers to these questions, but in my experience our present reality resembles something out of the movie, The Adjustment Bureau (2011):
Director: George Nolfi
Writers: George Nolfi (screenplay), Philip K. Dick
Stars: Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Lisa Thoreson
In this movie, those operating above this world definitely have a script. They send enhanced, long-living humans wearing hats (a symbol of a genetic upgrade) to enforce it. To make sure there is no deviation from it.
In the case of the movie, the agents are determined to prevent Matt’s character from uniting with his love. As explained on Wikipedia:
“The film tells the story of a young man who discovers that what appear to be chance events in his life are controlled by a technologically advanced intelligence network. After an event not planned by these controllers occurs – a romantic encounter with a young dancer – he struggles against their manipulation despite their promise of a great future for him.”
Arguably, our world has a cult of controllers above the five factions of power mentioned a few articles back. These controllers, too, enforce the script revealed by Albert Pike – that there would be three major World Wars, etc. – similar, actually, to the worst parts of the last parts of the Bible…
It does not matter too much if our world is a simulation or a real test case, or the unfolding of a computer algorithm. What matters more is that it is a rigged reality in which free will is negligible (because most humans are not sufficiently free to exercise it). Free will is not compatible with the enforcement of a pre-determined script.
For most humans, their emotional, spiritual and intellectual emancipation – and their exercise of true free will as sovereign individuals – can only come after breaking the shackles of economic and political enslavement.
Perhaps spiritual and material liberation can come spontaneously, but many people today, in both the religious and New Age movements, argue precisely the opposite, putting the cart before the horse. For them, change begins with rainbows and butterflies, and without firing a shot.
If that were really possible more people would have broken through, and more economic and political evolution would be visible. And none is.
Also, the controllers have suspended – or violated – the very principles they purport to abide by: the law of cause and effect, the law of consequences, etc…
Boy, they hold on awfully tightly, unwilling to recognize that they are motivated by one of the silliest and basest of human emotions: fear – which leads to cowardice. As below, so above. And so humans, under-estimated, are cheated out of their future by controllers who lack the creativity to let the future just happen.
The growing number of truth seekers who understand that the world we live in is, well, a running joke, might as well be on “tourist visa” in this realm, and they might as well remain unaccountable to anyone in this world or the next, given that they get it: we are living in an episode of Punk’d…
In sum, we are living in a kind of grotesque mutation, or smeared carbon copy, of a world. (But that’s OK! I’ve never been better!) Really, I’m not being sarcastic…
Overall this might seem to be a pessimistic view, but at least the movie has a happy ending:
“David and Elise find themselves surrounded on the observation deck of the GE Building. They declare their love and kiss before David can be reset. When they let go of each other, the Bureau members have gone. Thompson appears but is interrupted by Harry, who shows him a revised Plan from the Chairman: one that is blank starting from the current moment. Harry commends them for their devotion to each other, then says they are free to leave. David and Elise walk down the street as Harry speculates that the Chairman’s goal may be to prepare humanity to write its own “Plans”.
I think the movie ultimately classifies as “science-fiction…”
