Hi, John. I'm curious -- Do you know how this project is going? Are there any plans to pick it up again at any point? I see that there's been a significant drop in activity since the beginning of last year, which is disheartening but understandable considering the ambitiousness of it.

Just so you know, I'm a Unitarian Universalist and a student of many world spiritual teachers, and I am a professional software tester, so this project appeals to me for many reasons. :)

John of the Salvis tribe,

Thank you for your greeting, I am doing well thank you for asking, I hope you're doing well.

When you ask if this is my first time, I'm going to assume you mean my first time to this site. Yes, it is my first time here.

The definition of truth is VERY misunderstood, the only truth is casuality.  So, as with everything, the truth is relative. So, if you imagine the truth as linear time, in 1 day there are 24 hours, in 1 hour there 60 minuets, in 1 minuet there are 60 seconds.

So, to a being who only lived 1 minuet, the 1st second would be the cause and the 59'th the effect. The casuality would be those inbetween, which would be the truth.  To a being who lived 1 hour, he has 3600 seconds, much more "truth".

I know a man who is (almost) conscious to my level, who told another man too much too fast... and that man went outside and blew his brains out with a pistol, so... not everyone handles it too well. I handle it well for how much I know, I got my truth from sources not on this planet.

<3

Do We Live in a Computer Simulation?

 From: The Great Courses - Exploring Metaphysics - Lecture 24 Do We Live in a Computer Simulation? In this lecture, you will consider one final reason for thinking that there is a multiverse. lt’s possible that there is only one physical universe, but multiple computer-simulated universes—that’s the kind of multiverse we might live in. And if we do, it’s most likely that we live in one of the simulated universes. Because it’s about 20…See More
