Are we all just game pieces in the virtual reality game called “Life on Planet Earth?”
How fascinating would it be, if you and I could get together, create a galaxy (or hundreds of them), cause a planet to be formed and place a fake moon in it’s orbit? What if we designed and manufacture the planet by experimentation and introducing different elements and components to generate an Eco-system capable of sustaining life?
How interesting would that be?
Next up we experiment by introducing different types of flora and fauna to see what can survive and thrive in the Eco-system which we have developed.
After a while we’ve developed a palette, a background and underlying system to sustain life. This is where the fun begins.
First we drop some animated beings on the planet and see how they fare. They seem to adapt fairly well, but they don’t have much going on. Now that we have a basic structure to work with, we can take them into the lab and create a hybrid that is far more interesting by mixing in a bit of our own DNA, maybe some other components of other types of life that we may have access to for flavor.
What do we come up with? Our own unique design of a person.
Wow! I never had so much fun!
You and I have been so clever in developing these beings, that we’ve built-in all kinds of features, like the ability for them to multiply on their own, and for us to be able to access the life of any of these beings in the first person to share their experiences.
How much fun is that?
And it gets even better…
As this system is both physical and virtual, our sense of time is very different from that of the big video game construct. For instance, a lifetime for them (which lasts approximately 100 years) takes only about 10 minutes in our time, but if we’re playing the game in the first person our sense of time matches theirs. In this way, we can play out 100 years in the game, but have only actually expended about five to ten minutes of real time.
Sure, we had fun when we first started the game, but it was a little boring when it was just you and I playing in the game, but as they multiplied and word got out, we attracted all kinds of folks from all over the place who wanted to play the game.
Of course, we let them log-in and play.
While it has become wildly fun, it has become somewhat problematic, too. Some of the other players are not happy with just playing the game, they want to control it, manipulate it, even cheat, while others (who were not invited or had previously been banned) proceed to hack into the game.
Now what started off as one big video game, that could have been the best video game of all time, has become quite complex and it’s taking a great deal of attention and effort just to try to keep it under control.
All the while, there is an evolutionary process taking place from within the game; the game pieces are becoming more aware.
Certainly, we cannot allow them to see us – or themselves – as we really are, so we must keep them distracted by any means not to consider such a scenario.
There is no doubt, this is becoming the most exciting game ever created.
What happens next?
Elon Musk claims to be one of the awakened, aware game pieces, and he’s not embarrassed about shouting his truth from the rooftops about us all being players in one big video game for the amusement of some other superior race.
