Are we living inside a gigantic brain ?

Living Inside a Mega Brain: Metaphysicists identify the records imprinted on the zero point field as the "Akashic records". This forms the "memory" of the universal brain-mind or computer. According to metaphysicist, Charles Leadbeater, if the observer is not focusing on them, the records simply form the background to whatever is going on. Under such conditions they merely reflect the mental activity of a greater consciousness on a far higher plane which is accessible to us. We are in a sense living in this much larger brain. This suggests that all human beings (and other life-forms) can and do use the shared (information processing) services of a "universal brain".

Observing the dynamic and visual Akashic records would be like watching the larger brain's movie from a distance. As you move closer and focus on what is going on in a particular scene, you are immediately in the scene, surrounded by all the characters. The characters of course cannot see you. Neither can you change anything in the scene. In this way, a person can time travel as an observer, without violating causality. What you see is sometimes in the past and sometimes in the future. The rate at which "the story unfolds" can be altered. Genuine psychics and most people during near-death experiences have access to these records.

Leadbeater warns that the Akashic records must not be confused with mere man-made thought-forms, which exist in abundance in the higher energy planes or spheres. It is possible that if the right brain is not shielded effectively from the usually dominant left brain (the "theory maker") many errors will arise when reading the records.

"The Akashic records or 'The Book of Life' can be equated to the universe's super computer system." – Kevin Todeschi, Edgar Cayce scholar

The Universe is a Computer
According to Science reporter J R Minkel, in his article "If the Universe Were a Computer", information theory says that every physical system, from a glass of water to a microchip, holds "1"s and "0"s in the states of its component particles. Changes in those states could be called "computation", just as your desktop machine computes by changing the information in its memory. The only possible outcomes of measuring an electron’s spin are "up" and "down". You can choose any axis to measure the spin but once that axis is chosen only two results are possible. These outcomes could just as well be labeled as "1" and "0" – as they are in digital computers.
According to Seth Lloyd in a paper called "Computational Capacity of the Universe", all physical systems register and process information. The laws of physics determine the amount of information that a physical system can register and the number of elementary logic operations that a system can perform. The universe can therefore be considered a physical system or a gigantic computer. As a computer the number of elementary operations the universe has performed to-date has been calculated to be 10^120 operations on 10^90 bits.

Filaments and Nerves
It is interesting to note that the higher energy universes (as described by plasma metaphysics), composed of filaments punctuated with galaxies, bear an uncanny resemblance to our brains, composed of nerve fibers punctuated with neural cell bodies.
These successive universes can operate as the many layers of a gigantic electronic brain (analogous to the cortex and sub-cortex in our biomolecular brain) inside which our own subtle brain-bodies live and think. The filamentary structures carry current — just as nerves (to some extent) do. It would not be difficult to incorporate logic gates and arithmetic units into these structures.

The computational power required to generate a tiny living ant, which responds to multiple inputs from the environment and with its unique structure and behavior, would be challenging even to our current supercomputers. Considering that there are maybe trillions of life-forms on this planet alone, only the computational power of a series of higher energy universes (equivalent to the many layers of a universal brain) would suffice. This is the source of "universal intelligence and creativity".

According to quantum physics, under the Copenhagen interpretation, the universe exists only when you observe it. So where is it before you observe it? Quantum physics teaches us that the observer and the observed can never be separated and Schrödinger's cat can be both alive and dead at the same time. Does the universe exist or not exist? – It's your choice i.e. I believe it depends on the strength of your measurement (as argued in the book, 'Brains and Realities'). On a classical level, though, due to gravitational lensing and other weird optical illusions created by gravity there may be dupl... [More]

this pretty muchcorrelates with my theory of the answer to the great question. relates to being able to understand how one could use both sides of the force for the real good of the whole. opposites and the tension between them - will it create a split or a bond, is it loving tension where they dance, or hateful tension where they fight and push off each other until they finally decide to die and split ways. niether choice is wrong, wright, bad or good, there just simply is two choices for every one thing. the only reason they even let the tension develop in the first place is because they acc...

I'm not sure if anyones mentioned it but in the movie/doco masterpiece ''Koyaanisqatsi''(Life out of balance) The camera slowly pulls away from the earth in one scene from a large city at night & gives you the distinct impression of a massive computer/computer chip...

So your saying due to the currently understood scientific understanding, that in effect, it would be like the startrek series holodeck. You are not really moving, even though the illusion of movement is there. The program makes you think there is an expanding horizion so to speak. Yet finite. Yes, you could say that...its an interesting extrapolation!

I'm reminded of the old adage "as above, so below" -- the microcosm of the macrocosm. Most scientists disputed the analogical view that our solar system is a macrocosm of the atom because planets don't jump from one orbit to another. In 1950, Immanuel Velikovsky theorized that Venus displaced Mars from its original orbit and caused it to move outward to its current one. Living inside a gigantic brain may sound just as far-fetched, but it's a lot better than living under a giant's thumbnail.

Well this part of the brain is having dirty thoughts

Yes, you could say that...its an interesting extrapolation! Well, i'm pretty sure that applies to the mind as well. So either way, were in a brain.

It seems to me that mankind seems to be the center of most things. Like the way people use to think everything revolved around Earth. If humans were to die out wouldn't the universe still go on as it always have? So far, Earth has been the only planet with actual beings. Makes you wonder it it's for a purpose or just a freak of nature.

I've thought similarly. When you look at the sky and universe and the vastness of space beyond, it resembles a fetus in the womb, bacteria swimming through the blood and fluids of the body, etc. Birth expels fetuses into this world, death expels us into another world. When science was able to take internal videos of humans and animals, I was struck by how similar it was to looking into the vastness of space.
