The “Simulation” Model of Reality
The geniuses who created Quantum Physics realised that the anomalies their theory threw up had to be of profound significance.
Example 1) The “double slit” experiment, the results of which (a 'striped' interference pattern) were explained by the effects of the interaction of two coherent (identical) particles that had passed through the slits, produced (astoundingly) the same pattern when only one particle at a time was allowed to pass through the slits. Furthermore, the observed wave-like behaviour collapsed the wave into a particle if an observer recorded which slit the individual particles passed through.
In other words, consciousness appears to play a defining role in the manifestation of physical reality.
Example 2) Quantum 'entanglement'. There are 4 different ways that pairs of 'entangled' particles can be created, but the point is that after such a pair has been created imposing any change on one of the particles will instantaneously change the quantum state of the other even if it is at the other end of the universe. Many physicists, including Einstein, could not accept this quantum hypothesis (that has been experimentally demonstrated to be true many times over the past 50 years). It is easy to see why; because if the phenomenon is real then, by our ordinary thinking, if such instant communication over extraordinary distances occurs then a fundamental supposition central to all modern physics, that nothing can travel faster than light, must be false …
… OR either space or time or both cannot be real.
The “Simulation Model” of reality posits that our reality (and every other experiential reality) is virtual, i.e. that the only thing that really exists is consciousness and that what we experience as material reality is a program, like a video game, to which our consciousness is connected through an avatar (our physical body) and in which we are thoroughly immersed whilst undergoing this human experience.
Many thinkers going back to René Descartes have posited this model. Currently, the individual most energetically promoting it is physicist Tom Campbell whose “My Big T.O.E. (theory of everything) trilogy spells out his version of the theory. There are many presentations discussing the Simulation model on YouTube by various academics including Tom's talk to scientists at the US Space and Rocket Centre in Huntsville, Alabama. It is clear that he is finding that many professional scientists are prepared to accept his theory, as exchanges in the room confirm.
Because for me, as a Physics graduate, this model offers (at last) a coherent explanation of previously impenetrable quantum anomalies, it has got to be the most credible theory out there. Furthermore, it offers a 'big picture' that encompasses physics, metaphysics, philosophy and also most reasonable and welcome speculation about the purpose of the larger consciousness (which he calls "Absolute Unified Oneness" or "The Big Computer" but which we have traditionally called "God") in creating the virtual realities in which itself and its created conscious entities (that's us folks) can experience and evolve itself/ourselves.
As the number of professional scientists who support this theory increases, the credibility of the outright materialists (Dawkins, Cox, Attenborough et al.) who are selected to promote “scientific” materialism in the public domain will wane and their refusal to engage with the issue (all heresies unacceptable to the elite are suppressed by denying them the oxygen of publicity) will make their positions untenable.
When the common perception is that there really is no material universe. There is no space. There is no time. Our material experiences are part of a collective illusion created for our consciousness to experience …. with the purpose of improving itself …. when this is perceived to be our reality by significant numbers of the population, then materialists and the materialist-selfish-religion (Satanism/Luciferianism) that dominates in the corridors of power and in the public domain … will be defeated.
Furthermore, those that support (heartily or with reservations) this religious/political system will withdraw that support.
The Luciferian whisperers will slide away. Satanic masters will run for cover. Demonic criminals will look around desperately for some new fiend to obey. Worshippers of Horus, Baal, Moloch and other Satanic effigies will know their time is up. Freemasonry will scurry from the light into any holes it can find. The Jewish people recognising the lies under which they have been submerged will, in contradiction to their Talmudic Rabbis, do that forbidden thing. Self-reflect. They will look their religion full in the face and recognise that the founding Talmudic principle (and the core principle relating to recognised membership of the State of Israel), that only Jews are recognised as human* is an evil lie.
Like the first Jews who heard Him, they will recognise the voice of the Divine creator and, at last, follow Christ.
Then the primary purpose of “The Chosen People” (to fulfil the purpose of the Creator) will be completed.
The Purpose of the Creator?
The Creator designed this program in which we are intended to improve the quality of our consciousness by facing and overcoming stress and opposition, as though we were inhabiting a spiritual gymnasium. Only the Creator can win this 'game' via those that do themselves a spiritual favour and work to follow the Divine commandments. The outcome of the battles in this virtual world is INEVITABLE.
God cannot lose.
The Divine victory comes via our will to recognise and serve the divine in ourselves. For some reason the (seemingly self-selected) Jews are central in this game. They will win their spiritual war the way we all have to win ours; by recognising our own selfishness, justifications and real opposition to the will of the Creator and change appropriately.
We do not do this actively by our own power. We are a source of nothing.
Like our natural senses (touch, hearing etc) spirit comes into** our virtual body from outside (to use a spatial metaphor). To experience the ecstatic kingdom within we must get ourselves out of the way, which is hard for anyone to do but can somehow happen if a mysterious alchemy of misfortune/good fortune visits the willing avatar. For those who have experienced such a visitation all, it appears, we can do is to witness to the fact. For this witness the magical powers that might compel belief in another have yet to materialise. Maybe this is something to do with the necessary freedom that is a fundamental element of every consciousness.

“I have talked with angels about the conjunction of heaven with the human race, and I said that, while the man of the Church declares that all good is from God, and that angels are with man, yet few believe that angels are conjoined to man, still less that they are in his thought and affection. To this the angels replied that they know that there is such a belief and even such a mode of speaking in the world, and especially, to their surprise, within the Church, where yet there is the Word to teach men about heaven and its conjunction with man.
Nevertheless, there IS such a conjunction that man is unable to think the least thing apart from the spirits adjoined to him, and on this his spiritual life depends. They said that the cause of ignorance of this matter is man's belief that he lives from himself, without a connection with the Creator of life; and that he does not know that this connection exists by means of the heavens; and yet if that connection were broken man would instantly fall down dead.
If man believed, as is really true, that all good is from the Lord and all evil from hell, he would not make the good in him a matter of merit nor would evil be imputed to him; for he would then look to the Lord in all the good he thinks and does, and all the evil that inflows would be cast down to hell whence it comes. But because man does not believe that there is any influx into him either from heaven or from hell, and so supposes that all the things that he thinks and wills are in himself, and therefore from himself, he appropriates the evil to himself, and the inflowing good he defiles with merit.”
Emanuel Swedenborg, ‘Heaven and Hell’ §302
