At the most recent Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate, [scientists gathered to address the question for the year: Is the universe a computer simulation? At the debate, host and celebrity astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson argued that the probability is that we live in a computer simulation.] This is the crux of Tyson's point: if we take it as read that it is, in principle, possible to simulate a universe in some way, at some point in the future, then we have to assume that on an infinite timeline some species, somewhere, will simulate the universe. And if the universe will be perfectly, or near-perfectly, simulated at some point, then we have to examine the possibility that we live inside such a universe. And, on a truly infinite timeline, we might expect an almost infinite number of simulations to arise from an almost infinite number or civilizations -- and indeed, a sophisticated-enough simulation might be able to let its simulated denizens themselves run universal simulations, and at that point all bets are officially off." (Slashdot)
Are we a simulation..? Not as astounding as it may seem.. Consciousness rises in the form of mind with body and world made of mind.. Infinite Consciousness not infinite time contains the multitude of possible simulations to be made of Itself.. Each of us as our Real self named as Consciousness dreams at night perceives in day the simulations these our creations arising...
Our experience of space-time is that of a continuous object, without gaps or discontinuities, just as it is described by classical physics. For some quantum gravity models however, the texture of space-time is "granular" at tiny scales (below the so-called Planck scale, 10-33 cm), as if it were a variable mesh of solids and voids (or a complex foam). One of the great problems of physics today is to understand the passage from a continuous to a discrete description of spacetime: is there an abrupt change or is there gradual transition? Where does the change occur?
The separation between one world and the other creates problems for physicists: for example, how can we describe gravity - explained so well by classical physics - according to quantum mechanics? Quantum gravity is in fact a field of study in which no consolidated and shared theories exist as yet. There are, however, "scenarios", which offer possible interpretations of quantum gravity subject to different constraints, and which await experimental confirmation or confutation.
One of the problems to be solved in this respect is that if space-time is granular beyond a certain scale it means that there is a "basic scale", a fundamental unit that cannot be broken down into anything smaller, a hypothesis that clashes with Einstein's theory of special relativity.
Imagine holding a ruler in one hand: according to special relativity, to an observer moving in a straight line at a constant speed (close to the speed of light) relative to you, the ruler would appear shorter. But what happens if the ruler has the length of the fundamental scale? For special relativity, the ruler would still appear shorter than this unit of measurement. Special relativity is therefore clearly incompatible with the introduction of a basic graininess of spacetime. Suggesting the existence of this basic scale, say the physicists, means to violate Lorentz invariance, the fundamental tenet of special relativity. (The Daily Galaxy)
Thought for the day....... "We are completely unaware of our true nature because we identify ourselves with our body, our emotions and our thoughts, thus losing sight of our unchanging centre, which is pure consciousness. When we return to our true nature, our thoughts and perceptions no longer appear as modifications of a single substance, they come into being and subside like waves of the ocean." Jean Klein
Matter as such The breatharians claim of living on light abandonment of water and food the matter seeming to support the life we have always known.. A shocking claim to our hearing and most often dismissed.. What message might we find lying beneath shouting for our attention today.. Are food and drink simply expressing Light assuming a form in and as Light..!

Comments of film-maker, P. A. Straubinger:
The prevailing consensus of mainstream science, that rules our western society is, that the mind, the soul, the spirit are an epiphenomen of our biological brain activity - nothing more. We are complex `machines` that produce as a side effect, thoughts and emotions. I think this mechanistic view of the world is not only outdated and harmful to our nature - but it is also not holding up to reality and serious scientfic examination To make a long story short: The mechanistic-materialistic view in our world is an outdated philosophy of nature - but it gives the false security that we understand our world. Questioning this security is, in my opinion, the reason for the violent rejection of my film which has not been funded in plausible arguments but in ideological beliefs.
Of course this is my personal view.
You have to decide yourself what to believe. And first you should hear both sides of the discussion and as many arguments as possible.
Some critics claimed my film would be `complete nonsense` a `masterpiece of manipulation` or a `pseudo-documentary`. Media always shows a more or less subjective view and when you have to edit 200 hours of raw footage to 90 minutes of film, like I did, there is a lot of information you have to leave out! I tried my best to deliver a truthful concentrate of my many years of research. But, of course, truthfullness is not the same as the truth. So let´s have an open look at the different arguments and questions from the skeptics side.
Max Planck, Nobel Prize Laureate and pioneer of modern physics also questioned the materialistic worldview:
"There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."
“A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
The awesome and even presumptuous message of divinization is supported by Genesis 1:27 where we are told that we are "created in the image and likeness of God." Many tomes of theology have been written to clarify this quote. The word "image" describes our objective DNA that marks us as creatures of God from the very beginning. It is the Holy Spirit living within us as a totally gratuitous gift from the moment of our conception. "Likeness" is our personal appropriation and gradual realization of this utterly free gift of the image of God. We all have the same objective gift, but how we subjectively say yes to it is quite different. We already have image; we choose likeness. (Richard Rohr, Meditation, April 15th, 2016))
Thought for the day....... "As long as I am this or that, or have this or that, I am not all things and I have not all things. Become pure till you neither are nor have either this or that; then you are omnipresent and, being neither this nor that, are all things."
“I’ve been operating according to the idea that it is almost impossible to let go of mental patterns that operate unconsciously and that I have to know such a pattern of thinking first in order to let go of it and abide in my true nature. Leave all those mental habits and patterns alone. The self that is apparently operating, that seems to know these patterns and that would ‘let go of them’ is itself simply one such pattern. These patterns of thinking and feeling have taken their shape, over the years, from the belief that we are a separate self, without our making any particular effort. In just the same way, as our experiential conviction that we are not a limited, located self deepens, so our thoughts, feelings and subsequent behaviour will slowly, effortlessly and naturally realign themselves with this new understanding." ― Rupert Spira
In this program we will view and discuss the intriguing
video described below..
Is it possible that human beings can survive without food and fluid over many years and live on light alone? Are we confronted with quackery or with forgotten knowledge? IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS LIGHT follows the phenomenon which only a few in our Western world are aware of, as the topic has been either ignored or ridiculed by the media. The picture deals with human beings who allegedly can survive without food and fluid, over weeks, years and even decades. Most people would spontaneously say that this just cannot be. It’s impossible! But based on certified reports of personal experiences, interviews and scientifically documented laboratory experiments, the picture follows the phenomenon of "living on light” aka "breatharianism”. As incredible as it may be, there seems to be evidence that there are people living today and some existing thousands of years back too, who do not need food either to live or to sustain their metabolism. They live on "light" alone. Depending on the tradition this "light" may be called PRANA, CHI or ORGON. There are many names for this mysterious energy.

Without the Moon, there would be no life on Earth, French scientists claim.
The gravitational push-pull of the Moon on iron deep inside Earth keeps it hot and molten. And a liquid core is needed to generate a magnetic field, which forms a protective shield against blasts of particles from the Sun.
Denis Andrault from Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and colleagues propose the Earth's heated interior should have dropped by about 3,000 ºC over the past four billion years or so, but has instead remained almost constant – all because of the Moon.
Their story, published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, begins around 4.3 billion years ago, or 60 million years after the Earth's birth. (COSMOS Magazine)
