    Do you think we are all connected in some way ?. The New Testament says "we are one body in Christ, branches of the true vine".

    Is everyone God, a part of God ?

    Is everyone you? A good deed done to your neighbor is a good deed done for you?

    1) Yes, either in Christ or in the world.
    2) No, or else we would... not be who we are.
    3) No, but a good deed done to someone benefits others and yourself.

    Yes, we are all one. We all have that divine spark in us, that unites us.

    Now, which one of us will get to our dishes... the ones that keep piling up in our sink...

    Please allow me to posit God as being a posthuman technologically super advanced civilization living in base reality from where they have programmed simulated beings and simulated universes by some sort of powerful computer. Technologically advanced computers programmed by a posthuman technologically super advanced civilization might be performing an ancestral simulation whereby the actions of the posthuman technologically super advanced civilization ancestors' brain neurons are being realistically simulated along with the brain's sensory input having enough accuracy to convince each simulated character that he/she is real.



    Indications we might be living in a simulated reality:

    1. A particle passing through a double-slit behaves as a wave causing an interference pattern when unobserved, but this same particle doesn't create an interference pattern when its path of travel can be determined by an observer. This collapse of the wave-function could be happening in order to save computational resources necessary for our simulated reality.



    2. This mark of intelligence left in our genetic coding might be indicative of an intelligent designer, who may be responsible for the simulation of our reality. Our genetic code's creator has left this mathematical pattern in our genetic code conveying to me the symbol of an Egyptian triangle as well as the number 37 embedded in our genetic code.
    Eight of the canonical amino acids can be sufficiently defined by the composition of their codon's first and second base nucleotides. The nucleon sum of these amino acids' side chains is 333 (=37 * 3 squared), the sun of their block nucleons (basic core structure) is 592 (=37 * 4 squared), and the sum of their total nucleons is 925 (=37 * 5 squared ). With 37 factored out, this results in 3 squared + 4 squared + 5 squared, which is representative of an Egyptian triangle.
    I would not expect there to be a mathematical depiction of an Egyptian triangle stored within genetic coding if it were a naturally occurring phenomenon. The mathematical pattern of the number 37 being used as a key factor for conveying an Egyptian triangle might related to the gematria value of 37 appearing in the Hebrew language of Genesis 1:1.

    3. Theoretical physicist Dr. S. James Gates Jr. claims that a certain string theory, super-symmetrical equations describing the nature and reality of our universe, contains embedded computer codes; these codes have digital data in the form of 0's and 1's identical to what makes web browsers function, and they're error-correct codes.



    In conclusion, with the wave-function collapsing in order to conserve computational power of a simulator device, a semantic message in genetic coding, and the computer coding found buried deep within the mathematical equations of super symmetry., seems to me like we are living in a simulation.

    I suppose I have to answer No, given that we are not one apart from in the most basic sense of all being human, and probably never will be. As to God, I don't know, so can't answer Yes, and you are certainly not me and I'm certainly not you, so No to the last as well - apart from again, as to our being human and having mostly all the same characteristics and being made of the same stuff.

    No we are not God or part of God. Remember this:
    Matthew 10:28
    And fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him that is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

    God is able to destroy souls. Our souls is not necessarily eternal or unbreakable

    In the 4 years years since your referenced article doubting the possibility of a simulated universe, scientists have now worked together to create a virtual copy of the universe containing 2.1 trillion particles stored in a massive 3,000 TB of storage.

    Reference: The Uchuu Simulations: Data Release 1 and Dark Matter Halo Concentrations

    "The details of Uchuu are already high enough for the team to be able to identify everything that comes from galaxy clusters to halos of dark matter from other individual galaxies. Because dark matter is said to make up the majority of matter in the universe. It is considered to be the main driver of galaxy formation and clustering.

    It is said to require quite a bit of computing power and storage space to create such a detailed model. The group reportedly uses more than 40,000 computer cores and 20 million computer hours to create the simulation. It was reported to produce more than 3 petabytes or 3,000 terabytes or 3 million gigabytes of data."

    And there aren't enough atoms within the universe to simulate consciousness as we experience it. *Shrug*

    No sim.

    What is probably the "simulation" is the mask we build and project into the world around us.
    The "self" is the True illusion.

    I don't really watch YouTube videos. I prefer to read and form my own conclusions.

    Perhaps when scientists have figured out how to read the actual results of a consciousness simulation, then the simulation hypothesis will become a widely accepted theory.

    (+Edited*) *Until then, I suppose the simulation hypothesis will mostly have its doubters. Simulated Suave lets out a big sigh!*

    We need to solve the hard problem of consciousness first. And that's got quite a ways to go I think.
