Life is just perception, are we in a simulation?
The most memorable things about The Matrix are, without a doubt, the questions it asks about the true nature of reality. What if all we experience in life is simply a simulation?
“If we are living in a simulation, then the cosmos that we are observing is just a tiny piece of the totality of physical existence… While the world we see is in some sense ‘real,’ it is not located at the fundamental level of reality.” — Nick Bostrom
Could consciousness come down to the way things vibrate?
Why is my awareness here, while yours is over there? Why is the universe split in two for each of us, into a subject and an infinity of objects? How is each of us our own center of the experience, receiving information about the rest of the world out there? Why are some things conscious and others apparently not? Is a bird conscious?
Synchronized vibration may connect us all? All things in our universe are constantly in motion, vibrating. Even objects that appear to be stationary are in fact vibrating, oscillating, resonating, at various frequencies. Ultimately all matter is just vibrations of various underlying fields. As such, at every scale, all of nature vibrates.
Something interesting happens when different vibrating things come together: They will often start, after a little while, to vibrate together at the same frequency. They “sync up,” sometimes in ways that can seem mysterious. This is described as the phenomenon of spontaneous self-organization.
– When fireflies of certain species come together in large gatherings, they start flashing in sync, in ways that can still seem a little mystifying.
– Lasers are produced when photons of the same power and frequency sync up.
– The moon’s rotation is exactly synced with its orbit around the Earth such that we always see the same face.
Gamma waves are associated with large-scale coordinated activities like perception, meditation or focused consciousness; beta with maximum brain activity or arousal; and theta with relaxation or daydreaming.
These three wave types work together to produce, or at least facilitate, various types of human consciousness? But the exact relationship between electrical brain waves and consciousness is still very much up for debate.
What if the feeling is a conscious awareness of vibration and the vibration you’re in dictates what you’re going to attract in life.
