How to Evaluate the Characteristics of a Simulated Reality to Appraise Spiritual Truths

"Earth as a Simulation Series I: How the New Age movements spiritual sayings are 'correct' for a COPIED population where everyone is 'accurately' living SOMEONE ELSE's LIFE. How 'Confirmation Bias & Cognitive Dissonance' are the deducible 'Fixed Behavior's' a copied population will present BUT, wont figure out because 'software' defined people can easily be managed."

As you will need to know what a simulation is to properly and rationally evaluate our list of so called spiritual sayings then, let me start by giving you some definitions of the word ‘Simulation’ (multiple definitions are given on this web page here).

Would Definitions of ‘Simulation’ Help to Evaluate the Functioning of a Simulated Reality to Appraise Spiritual Truths?

  1. Simulation – Something which simulates a system or environment in order to predict actual behaviour. The weather or war games for example. A simulation could be made of a military operation to train military commanders or to demonstrate a situation or to test a proposed strategy.
  2. Simulation – When run on a computer is a way of representing the real world (or some aspect of it) by the use of a computer program.
  3. Simulation – Describes something that is a duplicate or a copy of something (sometimes on a smaller scale). For example, you would put together a working model of ‘something’ to study it or to test it (the handling of an aircraft for example or of how well a vehicle that drives itself performs) or to make predictions (predict the weather or to predict how a driver-less car would respond in various dangerous circumstances or to determine which sales or promotion strategies would have people buy the most things) which might lead you to use your accurate simulation to help you make changes to the original (to determine how to reverse unstable global weather or to determine how to make everyone buy everything for example). In other words in a simulation the simulation designer can control every single facet of the ‘copy’. Each component of a copied system can and will be made to function in accordance to the design objectives of the copied system.
  4. Simulation – Can also be described as the act of giving a false appearance a ‘masquerade’ or of making a false outward show. Like making a fake diamond for example or copying a priceless artifact or painting.

Now, I’ve simplified or in my terms made more ‘clearer’ the original definitions which to be quite honest in my terms are what I’d call jargonized, barely understandable, gobbledygook. In other words from my perspective the definitions relating to ‘simulation’ are virtually unintelligible in their meaning even for ‘normal’ COMPETENT people (perhaps we should be suspicious about this too?).

Let’s ‘focus’ our definition a little more and consider a computer simulation project rendering conscious, self aware people on the surface of an entire planet . . .

What are the Basic Defining Characteristics of a Simulation Project Reality?

This is sensible just in a basic sense because from the above definitions I think everyone reading this would have to agree we are observably not made of something obviously like papier-mâché and we aren’t being controlled and moved around by visible puppet strings. Are we?

Let’s translate what an operational simulation project is into very simple and more easily understood terms . . .

A simulation in a very, very basic sense is a COPY of something. It is a copy or a duplicate of a specific process or of an entire system.

The makers of absolutely any computer simulation project would ALWAYS strive to try and make their duplicate copy as accurate as possible.

The common factor of operational ‘real’ working simulations is that they are built to accurately emulate a duplicate copy of ‘something’ AND that this is done so that they will improve the simulation project designers understandings and or to help the designers to solve REAL WORLD problems.

In other words, for a simulation to return ‘useful’ understandings about real world problems then you need to be able to model or ‘represent’ the real, live ‘system’ you are wanting to emulate, seriously accurately.

A Simulation is always about making a COPY, an accurate DUPLICATE of some ‘Real’ System

If you are lacking in accuracy then your simulation project simply won’t return useful data. I.e. it’ll be useless.

Accuracy = Essential Requirement

Accuracy is a common feature and an ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENT of ALL ‘serious’ operational simulations.

An easy to think of example of a common ‘serious’ operational simulation would be a simulation dedicated to providing accurate predictions of the weather.

Simulations of the weather have to be done as accurately as possible to return the most accurate predictions of the weather over time. That’s not rocket science is it? It’s very easy to figure out that the less accurate your simulated computer duplicate is the less accurate will be your weather forecast.

How to Evaluate the Functioning of a Simulated Reality to Appraise Spiritual Truths

So, how would our list of so called ‘spiritual’ sayings stand up to some rigorous ‘rational’ and REASONED THINKING evaluations with respect to the ‘nature’ of reality if we are living in some sort of fully immersive computer simulation?

Please feel free to attempt to THINK about and to make your own ‘rational’ evaluations relating to these sayings before reading the pages that follow . . .
