It just could be that one has to believe it's real so it feels real and if you think it's not, well then thats how it starts to feel. That's how some philosophies could state it. But what a trap that would be with all the toxicated memories and visions that would suggest a simulation without it being one. I'm fairly sure that they are not just my imagination and my doing, but real or planted. The only way out of that sensation of fakery might just be a leap of faith that might lead to full submission in acceptance and forfeiting dreams of beyond. But at the same would knowing that it is a simulation even matter if you would feel the same outside of it? I guess I'm more just after the truth and having a chance to stay off the radar of the *'watchers'.
*Definition for my experience of watchers is either syncretism on steroids according to my actions and thoughts affecting others where I perceive and question them knowing me fully, a simulation reacting to sole me similarly or beings acting human some mocking your thoughts and actions consciously and some trying to help indirectly.
Mate(s). You both sound ripe to look in to the philosophies of ye ancient philosophical schools. They are definitely due for a comeback in this age of slave-driven materialism and false reality.I too have had many deja vu experiences. There was a time earlier this year when I had deja vu at least a dozen times a day. I had one experince that was so strong, I'm pretty sure I left my body. It was similar to the entering of a simulation scenario you described, except there were people standing in a circle asking for volunteers to come to this place. I volunteered. Stupid me, huh?
I can't prove to you I am real. I can't prove anything is real. I don't know if you're real either. At any rate, I want this to be my last go around in this realm.
I try to rise above this experience every day, but the television-watching NPC's do their best to syphon off my energy.
The old mystery schools had eternal reality and perennial truth in SPADES. Once you've read about one, the next is like; 'But that's just a version of the last one.. Isn't it?"
And it is, because reality and truth isn't 'open to interpretation' beyond cultural differences, they're eternal, cosmic, universal.
They are basically the esoteric, or hidden (occult) rationales behind the big three visible religions; christianity, judaism and islam.
Except the reasoning remains intact.
Some who follow Christianity (as opposed to church-going-christianity) do so because they can decipher the eternal truths in the bible- which most certainly do exist.
There's a guy called Bill Donahue who is quite funny and brilliant in this decipherment.
The patterns throughout the mystery schools suggest to my mind that the picture we're developing on this page is simply a part of that 'Other World' which is slowly coming in to focus. We're reaching for it. We're trying to push the veil aside to view that other world/s.
We sense (know/gno') there's more; our ancestors spiritual guides of say- paganism for example- which was obscured then swallowed and obscured some more, means that we're on our own, 'without spiritual training wheels' so to speak.
Everything is hidden from us, but.. we *know* some Great Truth is just... there.
Manly P. Hall's book 'The Secret Teachings of All Ages' is such a great intro..
Ancient philosophical schools are definitely due for a comeback. Beam me up Scotty.
