    Hoping you find a rock to stand on soon. The seas get pretty high sometimes.

    I must say, you operate with remarkable speed. You've gone from being the second coming to a humble angel in pretty good time. If only the "New Light" of the Watchtower organization were so efficient we wouldn't have to wade through numerous tombs of self promotion to get to the truth.

    Simulism, huh? Is that like a dream or hallucination? Thoughts such as these come at us in the dark and are better left alone or at least realistically evaluated from a logical perspective. I wish you the best in this endeavor.

    it used to say "There is just an over-acting intelligence" - I changed this to "There is an over-acting intelligence" - I used "just" to mean the thing that communicates with me - not that there is no God!

    I believe in a God that sits above the over-acting intelligence of the simulation

    Good for you. Truth is best.



    No, I would attribute that to a momentary lapse of reason or if pursued, insanity.

    That you are insane? Now that you realize it what is your next step? Parting the Red Sea or seeking out the great Thorazine?

    I've written about this extensively before I came to believe I was talking to God and not the Simulation - I haven't just pulled it out of thin-air

    I call my "Butterfly is God" phase my great confusion.

    Thank you for your advice

    Oh, Buddha! I can't keep up with you, you little rascal!

    this simulation does sound interesting, but a person as clever and creative as you seem to be would do a great deal better for yourself if you just stuck to your roots as a human being, an earthling man, as the Bible would have it. You could learn a great deal, for example, how to avoid such spiritually minded exaggerations.

    It's not a simulation is a video game based on make believe.

    Just as an interesting aside, Greek philosophers such as Aristotle thought of the butterfly as the soul, due to it's metamorphosis.

    What?!

    I think they should make a video game with the Bible as the subject. Of course, they would muck it up by producing some watered down apostate Jewish / Christian version, but an accurate Bible game with cool graphics, puzzles and game play would be . . . unlikely.

    Ahhh...A simulation of the mirror of `Gods` imagination.
    Does `he` shave in that mirror, or just reflect in it.
    We are just an imaginative being from Life's Stuff.
    `God's` Memories of what could have been...
    eternal life.

    It's no fun thinking you're Christ, believe me

    You know you cannot possibly hope to live up to his standards, or of what people expect of him

    I'm happy not to have his burden

    True, the responsibility would be overwhelming.
