Sadness isn’t itself a virtue. You know your heart best when it breaks, and you can come to see, that though you feel grief, your heart isn’t actually “broken”.
There is a third element. Call it spirit if you like. It is a principle of the impulse force, and it is what shaped the pattern that gave rise to your current spiritual inertia. It gathered the impulse energy to establish your inertial mass. It’s not really a construct. Bodies are by no means machines. They are realizations, figments of your imagination given tangible form. Dreams come true. I don’t mean whims, not wishes. They don’t exist for the purpose of wish fulfilment. They are a process of resolution that follows the initial realization.
That same scientist who spoke of the self-correction code also spoke of the ration of real versus simulated universes, and said it is much more likely that ours is a simulated universe. It’s just how the structure of reality would keep its continuity.
That may have been a second theorist, but yes. For me these things blur, but the point is, this simulation is not hard coded. It’s nothing so simple or rigid as anything humans have made up, and the “real” universes are composed of beings we would have a hard time even understanding to be living things at all. There is no death, because the cycles we see here are incidental in a way. The reason the universe appears to have persistent physical laws is because persistence is the law, if you will. It’s the fundamental nature of reality. The apparent impersistence is just a convention of explorative information processing.
Are we a simulation projected by the astral? Yes. Your dreams dream you, not you them.
The error correction code is to keep it ‘consistent’ for lack of a better term? Yes. Spiritual inertia exists because complete breakdown would corrupt the system, degenerate the quality of information to the point that there could only be a reboot. World traditions speak of this, but there are actually two possible outcomes, reboot or patch, and patching is the preferred option. The Brahman priests of India describe it as the breath of Brahma. On the exhalation the world is born. On the inhalation the world is absolved.
Now we as presences here are not fictions. This simulation draws its essence from the reality behind it. You are a real living being, but this form you perceive yourself as taking is not what you truly are.
Spiritual beings having a bodily experience, as they say? Yes. Real beings having a contemplative experience.
“The media is the message.” Exactly.
