Meaning of Human Life in Virtual reality is to be host for soul.
The question about meaning of human life has two opposite answers
offered by science and religion. Science is saying that life
is random act without any special purpose. Religion offers stories
about Supreme Being, God, who has the plan that is holy mystery.
The hypothesis about our reality that it is virtual game playground
of souls permits to discuss meaning of life in specific and rational
way. Human is the host for the soul and ought to entertain it
for whole life span.
There are most personal questions for any human being:
What is the purpose of life?
What for he was born?
What is the reward for good behavior and what the punishment for being evil?
How to know for sure that your act is good or bad?
Is there highest authority to establish ultimate laws?
Does God love you and why?
What is the human?
These have definite answers in science:
There is no purpose of life – just random act of something like
time-space-multi-something metrics that we have been researching
in close group of eggheads.
You have been born to die.
There is bare nothing after death, neither reward nor punishment.
Only free market recompenses good and criminal code defines evil.
Nobody has highest authority and there are no ultimate laws.
Yesterday escape from slavery is the crime, today to possess slaves is.
There is no God.
Human is nothing special, just temporary collecting of elementary
particles with conscious that is delusion.
If you don’t like scientific answers about purpose of life just
stop asking. Or you can put science books at shelve for Sunday
morning and go to one of the numerous churches teaching variety
stories with vague elastic messages. Just pick one of the religious
answers and forget and/or ignore that these answers these invoke
thousand more questions left aside as exoteric mystery. You can
eat all fruits of science like computer, internet and smart phones,
you can believe in science of global warming, you can argue about
validity of statistics of popular opinion pools, you can cite
scientific results when they are interesting anecdotes and don’t
touch moral problems. You can believe (!?! science is exact opposite
to the faith) in science but completely reject honest scientific
answers about meaning of your life – that there is none: life
is completely senseless.
Here is not critics neither science nor religion. Here is only
recognition that there are no GOOD (pleasant and in the same
time based on facts) answer for ultimate questions of existence.
Science provides dry, indifferent response – there are no experiments
to make any conclusions about higher purpose of life – it is
only random act of our strange Universe. Religion tells story
that is too small compare enormity of Universe we are observing.
Is there any common ground for both Religion and Science? Yes
there is the hypothesis that our world is one of the numerous
game virtual reality fields.
The hypothesis is that our world is computer game for habitant
of higher world. Why higher? It is obvious relation between toy
and player. Player is always superior to puppet. It is exact
analogy to the Matrix movie world except in movie biological
humans are needed only for emotionally affecting spectators.
Art form explores conflict and painful memories of past to tickle
feelings. There is no rationale to presume that the only possible
pair of host in form of human being and its player at higher
world is possible. In Matrix movie that pair is software program
and real human as player. Other possibility is that players of
higher world are software and software of our world act as their
host. There could be infinite number of Russian Dolls existences
in which the inhabitants play in lower ones and all of them are software.
Sometime in not too far future technology will rich the point
when artificial reality game will be unrecognizable for the player
from real one. To say that short game dive into other reality
is analogous to whole life of human is prove to be light minded cavalier.
In practically commonly understandable religious terminology
human in our virtual reality has soul that is the player of higher
virtual world. How technically this symbiosis could be constructed?
What we really know about our soul if anything? What we know
about ourselves for sure? Do we sure that our memory about our
life is the facts? All these schizophrenic questions with weird
absence of any answers except you must be crazy just to ask them.
There are list of more or less established truth about relation
human and his soul. We know nothing for real in scientific sense
of prove but what I and some others think there are right statements:
- Soul and conscience are two sides of the same coin if not identical.
- Soul is the storage of the long memory. Child before certain
age that is end of infantile amnesia has no soul.
- Human soul temporary disassociated with body during sleep time
communicating with highest world. Some of such experiences of
free soul can sneak into our conscious as memory of dreams.
- Death is the final separation of the body and soul. The departing
soul and body can happen even before complete decay of biological
construction in form of senior dementia. The meaning of the phrase
“he went out” is associated with the situation when vibrant soul
abandoned the body far before its physical death. Joe Biden is
the apparent example.
- There is no direct influence of the soul on human’s actions.
The soul is the primary source of emotions like happiness or
at opposite side of spectra can create depression.
These assumptions bring the picture of the world with at least
two levels these one of them populated by souls at the upper
level and human bodies at our, lower one. Upper level has advanced
technological capabilities compare to ours. Souls are not necessary
pure bodiless spiritual creatures. In first person type virtual
game the avatar can be any living creature including mystical
one. Host, soul, at upper world can be human alike or look like
elephant, dolphin or demon. Elephant and dolphin are the least
probable options here. Intelligent life form is associated with
handicraft skills. Intelligent creature in upper word should
have hands with fingers most possible, brain for sure, legs,
wings or snake body to move. Their most simple solution is to
create humans by their own image but esthetically improved a
little by removing tail, horns and sixths fingers at limbs.
The person of upper world, soul in our terminology, is immortal
by our standard. It has tons of time to live through and no need
taking care of daily bread. It is boring existence if one here
can put himself at such position. As we know the favorite way
to kill time is entertainment in general and games in particular.
Creatures of upper world have opportunity to participate in virtual
reality games one of them is our Universe. The theme park named
Earth with holographic alike star sky sphere around is available to play in.
There are no identical humans. Even genetically identical twins
have different treatments from the very start. The same not all
souls are equal. There are diversity of souls by wealth, intelligence
and experience. The same tickets to our Earth life game have
different values and prices.
If there are price in upper world there must be money there.
It looks like contradiction to have money in society with abundance
of physical goods. Beside material merchandise these are plenty
pure virtual ones: e-books, software, music, variety of services
from psychoanalysis to massage. In the world where bread is free
there will be needs anyway. And these will be money to buy satisfaction
of pleasure. Sex? Yep. This is too.
If you like theater depend on size your income check there are
more than few choices to participate in the spectacle: to buy:
cheap ticket at balcony, budget seat at parterre or even orchestra
seat. You can participate as stage-hand, prompter or even extra
in the spectacle. You can even buy in a leading part in any play
no matter how small you talent is – financial lost can be included
in an admission price. One can even buy whole theatre building
and whole enterprise itself and to pay to folks to attend your
show. The larger valet the more options to entertain yourself
no matter how good or bad you are. Instead to solicit prostitution
that is illegal very wealthy playboy can produce xxx-movie with
him as a star that is perfectly OK with law. He can even do not
distribute this movie for privacy sake. Money solves all problems
except these that can be solved with only very big money.
Virtual theme park “Earth” offers multiple opportunities for
souls to take part in the action. One can be born, live a peaceful
loving family life, grows old, get sick and die without any extraordinary
deviations from ordinary fate. Such life is analogous to the
ticket to rock show at the crowded stadium. It has few fun moments
by itself but it is better to get bottle of bear in addition.
A soul can even earn higher world currency by performing unpopular
parts in our theme park like to be victim of crime, war or natural
disaster or just live as slave, nothing terrible but no glory
as well. This earnings could be accumulated and sometime later
spend for reincarnating in nice happy life for exchange. After
multiple appearances as a slave some soul could chose to spend
earned for suffering to be born in family of the plantation owners for example.
Souls with extraordinary mental abilities can be personally invited
in theme park like ours to make it more attractive for ordinary
souls to visit. We know their names as great scientists, writers,
inventors, prophets, actors. Other name for such souls is celebrity,
that is literal description of the role. Celebrity souls could
negotiate not only payment after host human body death but also
physical attractiveness, vitality and longevity during performance
as human. There are obvious limitations like the fact that nobody
in human body shell can have every single wish fulfilled. Human
body constructed in a way that happiness minutes are short and
life is routine workshop and dull repetition of learned tricks.
Artificial attempts to cheat this fundamental rule of life by
stimulators like alcohol or drugs are accompanied with effect
of shortening life span.
Cumulative ratio between serendipity and misfortune for the whole
life can be predicted for the any given baby with very good precision
absent to especially bad luck. This ratio is exact the key point
of negotiation for soul as price of admission. The more happiness
is expected for human body as the surface of Earth compare to
suffering for illness or violent acts the higher price of incarnation.
Extreme points of zero satisfaction of the life or pure uninterrupted
happiness apparently are not possible. Nobody can be in the state
of permanent euphoria for whatever measurable period of time.
At the other side no one soul can only experience suffering in
the body of human host taking to the account childhood amnesia
effect. Souls will not chose the baby just before painful death.
So free soul of higher world after previous journey in our or
one of the numerous other virtual theme parks are in the process
of shopping the new life adventure. It has some amount of points
earned or saved after previous incarnations to spend or be paid
for new one. Looking at theme park Earth as one of the option
it can choose from numerous babies to be associated by mental
bond when living their life with full experience till death freed
them apart. As responsible buyer soul compares his budget with
multiple babies each of them has projection of fate ahead.
Even our limited level of knowledge and predictive abilities
we can predict with good chance to be right how happy will be
life of any given baby. If it is healthy, became sexually attractive,
learn to speak and walk early, been born in loving family without
pressing financial problems, belong to ruling nationality in
country with stable social construction and absent of active
volcano near by then with good chance this child will have happy
but ordinary life. But it will be really happy life nevertheless.
Soul of upper world would need to pay a lot to get incarnated
in baby with such promising future. But nobody guarantee anything
for sure, maybe, one can think. Game is always gamble and incarnation
choice should be as well.
Is it possible for very rich soul to buy incarnation into invincible,
impregnable and luckiest beyond all odds baby? It is imaginable
in principle although too costly to be realized even at heaven.
To make anybody special the themes park Earth has to have ability
to be restarted existence from any moment in time until specific
random but favorite chain of events would bring desirable for
special person outcome. It is parallel to the idea in the movie
Groundhog Day when individual was charged with task making happy
dinner in the small town having infinite number of tries. Here
the task to avoid any harm for special soul inside human body
by testing any point of history fork to avoid tragic danger apparent
by law of big numbers of attempts until one will make it. The
main of mine doubts about such scenario is the question what
to do if there are more than one such person at the Earth? Ok
it is durable if they are not fighting each other. If they are
antagonistic personalities McCain must die.
One other possibility is for soul to trade one part of life to
be happy in expense of the other. If person does participate
in the war and suffer tremendously then there could be some period
of rewarding life after. There could be also opposite trade off
like to be young conqueror like Alexander the Great but to die
far before biological time.
If you carefully follow uo the logic of the text above there
should be clear feeling that this picture is almost identical
to religious teaching. The actual difference is that in a religion
there is specific story about creator, afterlife existence in
heaven as reward or in hell as punishment. In religion you will
never learn direct statement about the plan for you personally
or for humanity in general. The answer is that God works in mysterious
way. Sure tt is in virtual reality hypothesis scheme too. But
here we have rationally possible answer. If we are toys then
the meaning of the life is to be good host toy to please our
soul that will score its experience in our theme park named Earth
and will make it popular enough to attract other souls that it
is the only way to prolong its existence.
By playing well individual biography each and every of us can
keep existence of our game field for souls to choose as attractive.
Show must go on or lights would turn off.
