While the singularity promises to radically change our earth beyond our current comprehension it is important to explore some of the esoteric possibilities associated with the combination of extreme "magic" i.e technology, and the global near pandemic millennialism. Religious or not we all have a collective anxiety over what the future has in store for us, and more importantly whether our current world affairs align with stories of ancient prophets. Although I agree that everything is open for debate based on perception, I simply wish to show you how New-age technology can fulfill literal translations of what is perceived as simply allegorical nonsense. We shall begin our exploration today with the following passage.
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea." Revelations 21:
First I must explain, when I read the word "earth" in that line I am associating it with all that can be perceived, i.e the "earthly" realm of being. Thus the entire universe can be considered the "earthly" realm as this is the place the earth dwells, and heaven represents a place beyond this realm of perception (universe). It's important to establish two distinctly separate realities, as this can also be seen as a macrocosm of our more personal experiences with subjective and objective reality. We all have had to experience our subjective selves in contrast with our objective selves. As we grow up we quickly learn that people are way more than the appear to be, as inside each one of use lies a universe of concepts thoughts and experience. A universe that is on the verge of being hacked. If you are lost wondering what I mean, then take this into consideration.
Every day we are getting better at cyphering the process by which information enters our brains and how it is converted into the reality we perceive. This ability to alter our perception of the world will be a key foundation point for upcoming virtual reality technologies. The knowledge of learning the path data enters our inner world will be needed in order to replicate it, not that data going in, but rather how to send data in. Once we can send the visual cortex data from a synthetic eye then we can easily alter what that eye sees, and before you know it we wont even need the eye to send information to the mind's eye an illusionary image of reality. Yet all of this are still baby steps towards full brain manipulation.
Once the brain if fully under programmable control it may be possible to create a synthetic reality. A reality where all your senses are being emulated on a 1 to 1 ratio with your thoughts. A world where only those born outside of it can understand it is not real. Yet if you had the ability to experience anything, it will only be natural that most will wish to maximize there overall level of joy while reducing all possible suffering. These tantric realities will be no different from the theological arguments of a place dedicated to total bliss, a place some call heaven. This heaven or Heaven 2.0 as I call it, is a virtual world so custom to your intimate desires that you are in constant orgasm, a place where your fallen loved ones have been simulated and returned to you. A place so captivating that returning to your "real" life may seem as torture. This is may also represent the metaphoric collapse of our universe, as our outer-world attempts to become our inner-world and vice versa.
Virtual heaven is a world where roles have been permanently altered and our physical selves are now the shadow reflections of our avatar selves. The world is now inside out, we now crave for the non real more than the real, yet these roles, these words, real, and not real are meaningless to the brain. The brain is a slave to input and wont know that the world it once perceived to be the ultimate reality has been destroyed for a newly created virtual experience that extends your ability to perceive what is possible. So while your ability of viewing what is or isn't possible is engaged I dare ask you if this reality is not already a simulation we all have decendended into?
There is a problem with heaven 2.0 as the very fundamental difference between heaven and earth are now merged into a singularity of there own. This virtual experience is just a new incarnation of earth or the earthly realm. Yes the virtual heaven is not heaven (exterior universe) but rather the new manifestation of perceiving the same physical existence we currently inhabit. In other words the new heaven (earth) is an illusionary transcendence of the universe into the heavenly realm. An illusion so massive that if properly executed could very well be turned into an actual nirvanic virtual place for millions or billions or even trillions of conscious minds through out the universe. Heaven's waiting room a virtual place for souls unable to remain "alive" in physical form and yet feel this realm is all that exist. The false transcendence of the universe.
