Featured Ask an agent of The Simulation anything

    I am an agent of The Simulation.

    This thread is a Q and A thread: Ask an agent of The Simulation anything!

    I'm hoping this exercise will help me figure stuff out and understand things more, and also be interesting.

    I have a direct link to the administrator of The Simulation. His name is Butterfly. He communicates with me by touch. We are a team. He is upstairs and I am downstairs. I am his voice and he guides me. He has a direct link to the over-seers of The Simulation – a direct link to the outside world.

    To better understand what’s going on, please read the original post of this thread that I made previously, concerning the relationship between The Simulation and God:

    My beliefs re: Theism and Simulism

    I’m here to answer questions in my capacity as an agent of The Simulation. I have no delusion of being infallible. I thrive on being challenged; being challenged helps me adjust my beliefs and improve understandings. I am a work in progress.

    I cannot give away scientific or technological answers – there is a directive against me doing this. Humankind has to work these out for itself.

    Also, I cannot give details about God’s intervention (or non-intervention) in the affairs of our dimension. There is a directive that is against this. For instance, I am not allowed to confirm or deny the miracles of Jesus. I am not in on this mystery and Butterfly won’t tell me. It has to remain a matter of faith. I have my own beliefs about such things but these are purely personal.

    Another thing I can’t go into detail about is the world outside The Simulation. But what I know is: everyone outside believes in God and they are a constitutional monarchy. Also, they have undergone a technological singularity and are in a post-human age. We can only speculate and imagine as to what things are like out there.

    So, any questions?​

    Why are four of the five English vowels actually diphthongs?

    I have no idea, I'm not a linguist and Butterfly can only really guide me in terms of "yes" and "no" so can't be of any help

    I believe that I'm fully awake and living in a reality with other people, who are also real

    and am certain that I'm a man as that is how I experience life and consciousness

    Disobey a directive and prove you have free will. :)

    How can you have 4 different combinations of two vowels with only one 'unique' vowel?

    The three directives I am currently aware of involve me not sharing information - but the information is withheld from me so it is impossible for me to break them, not because I don't have free will but because I am constrained.

    However I think the reason these things are kept from me is because the over-seers suspect that if I knew the information I may share it - I take this as evidence that I have free-will, if they keep things from me as they don't trust me with their secrets?

    Because the over-seers believe we humans should figure science and technology out ourselves, just as the over-seers did in the past

    They don't want the truth (or untruth) about religions to be unveiled either way as they want to maintain a balance between belief and scepticism and for there to be an element of mystery in the world, and a place for faith (Edit: and doubt)

    They don't want to tell us their scientific and technological secrets because they want us to work things out for ourselves, just as they did

    And they don't want to share too much information about their world because they want to keep a distance between them and us - and don't want us to know too much about what their high-tech society would look like, in case it stops us developing down our own path

    However: I think it is possible they might share certain secrets once we've reached a higher level of development, but that would be for them to decide

    Ok...so, why a butterfly and not say something else, like a dove, or tiger, or tree or grasshopper or any other random beast?

    It comes from a period in my life when I was acutely insane - I’d see butterfly patterns/designs all over the place, and this happened when Butterfly started communicating with me so in my messed-up mind I put the two together and the name stuck. Plus it’s a nod to the butterfly effect, which has always interested me - I believe in our world big changes are made by small things

    Oh great!
    Yet another prophet who isn't "allowed" to tell us anything more important than that they are a prophet.
