The Game of Life, A Video Game



What are you?  Who are you? What’s your purpose in life? Everybody wants to know.  Well, here’s a few clues.

There are a few recurring mathematic/geometric patterns in Nature. For example:

  • Pi – The ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter (3.14159265359…)
  • Golden Ratio – An irrational number found by dividing a line into two parts so that the longer part divided by the smaller part is also equal to the whole length divided by the longer part (1.6180339887….).
  • Fibonacci sequence – A sequence where each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. It is pervasive throughout nature, art, music, biology, and other disciplines.

Pi and the Golden Ratio are significant because they produce a result that cannot be exactly calculated (at least not in this universe).  That is, they are infinite numbers in a finite universe.  They indicate that something exists outside of this universe.  Further, all three show that our universe has intelligent design.

Physicist James Gates Jr. has stated that scientific theories which describe the fundamental nature of the universe contain embedded computer codes. Gates was talking about the 1s and 0s found in the software of modern computers. Think programming.  Again, intelligent design.

Einstein believed that time was an illusion; that the past, present and future exist simultaneously. This kind of “reality” can only be found in video games or movies. Many movies/TV shows were made with a message to the viewer about the true nature of reality, including The Matrix, The Truman Show, Blade Runner and Westworld.


The Game of Life

So, let’s start playing the game of life. First, what’s the purpose of life?  I would suggest that the purpose is to exit the game. Think of Tron.

Why Tron?  Well, in Tron the main character exists outside the game and subsequently becomes trapped inside the game, and then has to find his way out again.  So, the object of the game is to find the door, to find the exit from the game of life. Why? Well, because the programmers of the game require it. Remember, intelligent design.

What is reality like inside the game? So, if our reality is a video game/simulation what can we deduce about it? First of all, this is not a material world. The universe simply consists of information. It’s digital. For those of you who argue over a flat earth, the earth is neither round or flat, it’s holographic.

So, how do we experience this reality? Actually, in our mind. Everything is a function of consciousness. Even Einstein and Planck realized that.  Our physical bodies have sensory equipment that send information about the nature of our surroundings to the brain where that information is “translated” giving us an “interpretation” of reality. The interpretation of reality, based on sight, does not take place outside of our bodies but rather in the brain where there is no light whatsoever. As for thinking, science has demonstrated that the vast majority of thinking is done by our subconscious mind without our awareness. These apparently are the rules of the video game. When you play the game of life, you operate based on your “perception of reality.” Of course, you have no idea that you are inside of a video game.  All you have to go is your perceptions to go on.

So, where is the door? Here’s another clue. Remember, perception is everything. Think of yourself as being the game itself, instead of being trapped inside. Games actually can be quite interesting when you know the rules…and are aware that it’s actually a game.


“I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” – from the movie The Matrix
