To simply put it will make you really, really fearful, paranoid, and angry.

It's been a while since I embraced simulation hypothesis, and I am beginning to realize that it does nothing positive to me. From my view, s.imulism is very well compatible with maltheism. In fact, they can be easily merged. I realized that I ended up going back to maltheism, which I tried to avoid because it's damaging to my mind.

In simulation hypothesis, it's incredibly difficult to accept the concept of pure coincidence and randomness. When you start believing that everything happens as scripted, life will turn into hell itself.

My hardship drove me to chase down the rabbit hole, and I am paying the price for seeking the horrific truth.

Life itself might be indeed the love child of H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen King, with some sprinkling from Wil Wright on meth.

This is like mad libs, but I feel like I'll get in trouble if I try to guess the subject.

edit: I'll stop editing with words I think it might be now.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

  • You can't just choose to believe something.

    Believing in something doesn't make it true.

It's basically a shorter term of Simulation Hypothesis. I can't fathom why it would be a spam word.

Maybe the big guy up there has something to hide? I mean the webmaster.

I have changed the title and edited Ambelamba's opening post replacing *spam filter* with simulation hypothesis.  I have also reported the issue, don't know why the spam filter would collect that one either.

Can I suggest if you wish to use the shortened term that in this exception you type in s.imulism to avoid the word being collected by the spam filter (the dot is the obvious addition to the term Ambelamba was looking for).

Cheers all.

Okay, that makes more sense. Now the only thing that doesn't make sense is, why is this thread in this forum? Seems better suited to the philosophy forum.

Good point, moved.

Actually the line between Philosophy and spirituality is VERY blurry to me, like many Asians feel.

Some people have probably said "with great wisdom, comes much sorrow." However, would it be so implied that the sorrow is not a matter of a lament but a barrage of torments?

I gotta respectfully disagree with you, ambelamba. I found the Simulation Hypothesis incredibly exciting. To me all explanations for the Universe have some depressing aspects. It all depends on how you look at them.

We're share the same dream..

But seriously.. Kudo's to you Ambelamba for diving so deep down the rabbit hole.. many lack that bravery.. myself included..
Perhaps it it time now to embrace another cosmic truth that is much discussed but seldom understood. That being that we create our realty..

Stop creating that fear, paranoia and anger..
