Today I experienced what some would call a poltergeist. I was eating lunch and right at the crescendo end of a show I was watching, a show about lost love ones, actually, right at the big finale as the music swelled, a door in my house opened by itself slowly, then very slowly closed. There was no discernible wind. This door has never done that before.
Shortly after this, some friends in Hawaii I hadn’t heard from in about a month told me out of the blue that they had just written my departed fiancés’ name on a memorial lantern in a ceremony.
The Eureka episode I was watching was, “God is in the Details.” Season 2, episode 10, the only episode of this sci fi show so far that has said anything much about religion.
Am I making something out of nothing, or is this another clue in the game of my life that I can choose to ignore or follow?
Crazy coincidences like this have increased my view that this all may be a simulated universe. It is the most logical way I have to understand strings of highly improbable events in my life.
Another big clue embedded in my life game: Elon Musk, who put a real red Tesla roadster in space after I was in a music video driving in a red tesla roadster in space is certain that life is a video game. The argument is that we’ve gone from Pong to realistic multiplayer games like GTA in just 40 years, so you can imagine in another 100 that a game could be indistinguishable from reality.
One thing that later generations might do with their super-powerful computers is run detailed simulations of their forebears or of people like their forebears.
I got excited about the game Zork as a kid, a text-only “choose your own adventure” game where the object was to explore, solve puzzles, gather treasures and put them all in a trophy case. I feel pretty certain that accumulating wealth is not the point, but that might be part of it for some, if wealth is used for good deeds.
For me, the life game seems to be about little quests and helping others as opportunities permit. The object is probably to self-improve until you can consistently show love, compassion and good character, especially when life tests you by being crappy. Is the game goal is to do the greatest good for the most humans? My meditation phrase keeps me focused, “Have I done today the good I may?” (I’m on the app Insight Timer if you meditate and would like to join me.)
This was my train of thoughts after an unexplained phenomena today.
What now, life?
