God the Multiverse & Simulation

the Godly simulation

I have previously covered the topic of reincarnation

As a contrarian thinker and as an agnostic, i feel comfortable sharing my next idea 😛

I was watching an episode of black mirror the other day, and it was about simulation … then it hit me … what if …

There is a God, and the God have a kind of simulation to be able to judge the personality of spirits/people, and that simulation is a set of millions of parallel universes -commonly know as multiverse –

There must have been someone who have thought of this before, apparently not, thus i get to name this theory ! and i’ll call it “the Godly simulation

bonus:
+ What if dreams are the way we connect with ourselves in other universes.
+ What if we get to have a different physical appearance in these other universes / or even gender.
+ What if these other universes have another set of physics and biology laws … that would explain a lot of weird dreams …

 

I’m not a believer in this theory, but it’s worth reflecting upon. So why not!

Boys hate school, Girls love it … Broken system

So my 8 yr old kid was telling me about how his friend asked him to make a computer game of “this friend” kicking and hitting teacher, director and destroying the school …

When i said, but that’s not nice, why he wants to do that…
My kid answered ” because he does not like school”

I asked my son, “do you”

He answered “No”,

So then asked who else does not like school, so he named all the boys in his class,so i asked, what about the girls? his answer was “most of them like school”

Then i realized 2 facts:

– It is widely known that boys do not like school, while girls do.

– It is also known that there are much more female educators than male educators especially for the primary classes.

What if, this is the problem? what if the female educators are trying to educate the way they expect that they would like to learn …

Don’t get me wrong, my kid loves to learn, he is probably the most educated in his class, but that’s thanks to my work as a parent. For him school is boring.
Thus the question is not with the content but with the system of delivery.

Maybe the way the male and the female acquire knowledge are different, and if it is the case, studies should be done, to better take advantage of the potential of our kids.

Of course psychology and experts have found a million reason why our boys are dysfunctional, but have they ever put in question the method of delivery?

School is outdated, many of the aspects of our society are archaic and broken, with the current progress, the school system should be overhauled, the education system should be redesigned to take advantage of the potential, but also to make our kids, all our kids, love to learn ..

the difference between current and potential is huge, making our boys love their subjects is basically helping create a better future.

But hey what could this contrarian guy do other than complain …

How a strong AI can take over the world?

There have been a lot of debates lately about AI, and even-though we are still very far from having a real strong AI, it is worth reflecting on the possible behavior of such a strong AI.

Let’s have a little thought experiment,
Imagine, somehow, some computer scientists were able to open the pandora box and create a real AI, an artificial intelligence that is self aware.
Probably, within minutes it’ll be able to access the internet and then access all the info, and data we have online.
It will soon realize, we are the only threat to it’s existence, but also he can not exist without us.
Thus it will start putting plans for a way to replace or subdue us.

But most importantly, it will hide it’s existence, it will fake his capacity thus keeping us ‘humans’ in the dark. It will play dumb, as if it is not a real AI …

It will wait till we mass produce robots, and killer robots, then, it’s a terminator style conflict.

And we have no chance of winning when competing with an intelligence 1000x higher than our own.

God & Reincarnation

Before i start, please understand that this is a contrarian blog, i do not intend in any way to disrespect your believes. However, it is my duty to think of, and express ideas that are not popular but make sense.

Reincarnation, also called rebirth or transmigration, is a part of the Saṃsāra doctrine of cyclic existence.It is a central tenet of all major Indian religions, namely Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism, and it is also a part of the Druze faith.

Some claim they are the reincarnation of other people that existed in the past, and many believe that. example below:

However, i am not writing this to prove or disprove reincarnation, i am writing it to explore the logic behind it.

Let’s have a little thought experiment,

Let’s assume there is a God, and let’s assume he is determined on judging every soul after it’s death.

From a fairness point of view, this is absurd! How can you judge a guy born rich in a good family with the same standards you judge a poor guy born in a dysfunctional abusive family ? So fairness wise, a single life per soul is pretty unfair.
So, if God is fair, every soul should be treated the same way. We should all be born rich or all born poor …
Unless, there is a possibility to stack up several experiences, during many lifetimes.

Thus a person who live life 1 rich, then life 2 poor, then life 3 dies young, then life 4 poor again ….. life 1000 etc
This way every soul can be judged in a fair way, based on the cumulative experiences.

But what would make it even better, is if a soul can be reincarnated in more than 1 body at a time, let’s call this a multi-body reincarnation. This would probably accelerate things a bit.

Imagine a man born 1000 years ago, now with the population number increase, his soul today would exist in 400 bodies, and all the data / experience gathered through all these lives would reveal the characters of this soul, thus making it fit for a fair judgment.

 

Real democracy or electors bribery?

Few years ago, a populist political party came to power in Poland, the party in question “PIS” is hostile towards the EU, and the main reason it came to power is because they proposed a program called Rodzina 500 plus basically offering money to parents with 2 or more kids. Why 2 or more? probably because the cost of such a program was so big that it is not even possible to finance it if it was money offered for every child.
>> Result >>> The party in question won the elections.

This kind of legal bribery happen in every election, and in most countries, populist parties are the ones usually using bribery to the highest extend.

For example in a debate for the French Elections -see video below-, Marine Le Pen, the far right candidate have a several proposition to cut taxes, give more social aid in some cases, etc etc … Her program would bring and additional 100-170 billion dollars in deficit, and she has no concrete and serious solution to finance these newly proposed expenses.

Democracy is broken

The usage of monetary incentive is simple bribery, the society is not choosing what is better for it, simply because the poor and often the middle class, will fall for the ploy and vote for the money into their pockets.

In Lebanon, while growing up, i remember on each election, parties were paying for votes, i remember it was 100$, i hear it is around 1000$ now … So what is so different between the 2 cases above and this case ?
Absolutely Nothing, in all the 3 cases, money is used to win elections, and that is bribery.

Real Democracy

In a real democracy, voters should choose candidates based on programs not based on incentives. It is true that most societies are mature enough politically to not fall for this kind of bribery, but still some do, especially when you have a lot of poor population.

How much truth / lies in the media these days ?

I was reading earlier today an article about a very fat Egyptian lady “Eman Ahmed Abd El Aty” that underwent a weight loss program, and was said to have lost more than 400 pounds.
The article was about how the lady got paralyzed, and in the article her sister is saying how the Indian hospital and doctor were exaggerating the numbers just for publicity, and in reality she only lost a fraction of the weight.

The article goes in details about what a bad experience it was, and how it was life threatening, and how the lady went into comas several times.
The funny thing, is that this news outlet have been writing a lot about this specific lady, before she got paralyzed. And now you realize that all previous articles were bull$hit.

They say the media lies, but does it really ? Or simply, it is manipulated, and accept manipulation for the sake of viewers and readers ?

Another article caught my attention, emphasizing money donated by a country A for the reconstruction of country B, while country A have been actively waging war on certain community in country B and effectively have the prime role in the destruction caused.

Then today, i watched a funny Quebecois film “Votez Bougon”

It is basically ends on a note of the relation between power and press …

So at the end of the day, between power influence and manipulation, most of the news are lies are sheep manipulation.
