We May Be Trapped in a Matrix Time Loop

(Before It's News)

During the first week of September, 2016, Bank of America Merrill Lynch sent out an unusual memo to its clients. According to Business Insider, “BAML included an infographic depicting a “future reality” stating there’s a 20 to 50 percent chance we’re living in “The Matrix.”

The idea of life being in a highly realistic and convincing virtual reality world called “The Matrix” has been gaining popularity over the years following the release of the movie trilogy.

Many people believe the physical realm or 3D reality we experience is a simulated virtual holographic environment. This theory suggests that we experience the material world in our minds and through the five senses of the human body. Thus, the human body is essentially a sensory suit we use to experience physical reality.

You could think of the Matrix as a “mind machine”. The experience of the Matrix is an inner journey. The simulated or virtual environments formed by the Matrix are mental constructs. In fact, the Matrix is something we create and experience. The world we perceive outside our minds are inner realities. So, the Matrix is basically a mindscape or a mental safari. The Matrix is truly a reflection of what we perceive and believe in the world outside our minds. The people, events and objects we perceive that are instrumental in forming our beliefs and opinions are merely interpretations of the mind.

“Many scientists, philosophers, and business leaders believe that there is a 20-50% probability that humans are already living in a computer-simulated virtual world. In April 2016, researchers gathered at the American Museum of Natural History to debate this notion. The argument is that we are already approaching photorealistic 3D simulations that millions of people can simultaneously participate in. It is conceivable that with advancements in artificial intelligence, virtual reality and computing power, members of future civilizations could have decided to run a simulation of their ancestors.”

The Matrix itself is quite intelligent, independent and autonomous in its operation. The true power of Matrix is unknown. The Matrix appears to have been designed to collect and store information. This would be mean the Matrix operates under the Law of Expanding Consciousness or the Expanding Universe Theory. If this is the case, the Matrix will forever seek to expand into greater depths and dimensions in the pursuit of knowledge.

In its note, BAML wrote. “In April 2016, researchers gathered at the American Museum of Natural History to debate this notion. The argument is that we are already approaching photorealistic 3D simulations that millions of people can simultaneously participate in. It is conceivable that with advancements in artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and computing power, members of future civilizations could have decided to run a simulation of their ancestors.”

“According to Business Insider, Bank of America’s corporate and investment banking division also highlighted three scenarios, including the possibility that we’re in the matrix already — in which case, it may be impossible to know whether or not the matrix has us. “The investment implications remain unclear,” BI’s Myles Udland wrote.”

It’s been postulated by philosophers and scientists that the Matrix was specifically created to examine and understand our inner nature. However, the Matrix is far more complex than our current concept of artificial intelligence. The Matrix is programmed to contemplate its own existence, and is mostly aware of itself.

The knowledge base of the Matrix, which includes its physical and non-physical realities, continues to expand. It is both the universe we know and the hidden universe. The invisible or hidden universe . . . The reality that exists outside of body is another kind of Matrix people sometimes call the astral plane or the ethereal realm. It is not known whether the Matrix has definable limits or recognizable boundaries.

We do understand that each individual has their own perception of reality which is their “personal reality”. The stimuli received from outside of us through our physical senses is interpreted by our conscious minds and forms our understanding of reality. This is the ‘inner world’ or inner landscape of the mind which we believe to be the outer world.

Our interactions and communications with other beings we come into contact with in this simulated environment creates a kind of group experience that could be called a “consensus reality”. Our social relationships with others within the Matrix, allows us to form a general consensus concerning the nature of reality. In other words, people make agreements about the meaning and nature of objects, situations and diverse conditions that exist in the material world. This is where people agree that “apples are apples and oranges are oranges”. You could call this the ‘common reality’ or in some cases “conventional reality”. People find these agreements essential to forming and operating a functional society.

Some people, who are called Old Souls, believe the Matrix was once used as a means of personal entertainment and for challenging the “human spirit”. So, it was known as the “Game of Life”.

Most of us who participate in the game of life are “Players”. We play roles within the Matrix and act out our human dramas and controversies. There is an appropriate saying for this condition “We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”

It’s apparent that at some point the Matrix became a tool for personal growth and development. It became a virtual environment people used as a kind of ‘School of Life’ learning tool.

In the final stages the Matrix technology continued to advance in sophistication to the point that serious scientific experiments could be carried out to improve the condition of our species. Many of these experiments operated on the pleasure and pain principle. This became known as the ‘Human Experiment’.

We can theorize from reports of people who have had near death experiences, out-of-body experiences (OBEs) and astral travellers, like the late Robert Monroe, who authored the “Journeys Out of the Body” series, that volunteers participate in these psychological experiments for self-improvement and for the evolution of our species. These experiments often involve agreements between people which are referred to in the spiritual community as “karmic contracts”. This are pre-life contracts where one person agrees to play the role of an abuser and another person agrees to play the role of victim for personal growth and learning purposes.

A contract by its nature will involve at least two spirits who agree to collaborate on a particular issue or mission. In many cases a person will choose to be the “bad guy” in a particular life scenario that is to be acted out. This person could be thought of as a “competitor”. A person who chooses to take on the role of an “evil” character is supposed to be benefit by learning more about the nature of ‘evil’ and therefore more about their own nature.

“Players” or “volunteers” apparently agree to stay in their bodies while they are experiencing life. This means astral projection and out of body travel is prohibited while operating within the Matrix. Otherwise, the game is said to be comprised. This is a specific rule we agree to before entering into a life contract. Similarly, mediumship and channeling (spirit communication) is discouraged.

The operation of the Matrix appears to be highly controlled by the “Administrators”. Administrators are probably corrupt human spirits who serve extra-dimensional aliens with a hidden agenda.

The nature of Matrix is shrouded in mystery and concealed in secrecy. Volunteers or players are not privy to technology and its real purpose. Many believe we have been lied to by those who control the Matrix. Even Old Souls who have been reincarnating within the Matrix for eons do not have the answers.

Many spirits continue to play the Game of Life, because it has become an addiction for them. This is why spirit communication through mediumship has very limited value in terms of receiving answers concerning the meaning of life and the nature of reality. In the afterlife, “dead souls” remain in a dream state and under the spell of the Matrix. Very few spirits have the answers we seek. Most disembodied spirits seem to have fewer answers than living people.

The Matrix appears to have an interesting feature built into it that prevents us from knowing where we came from and where we go after our body dies. You could think of this as the “corporeal hypnotic amnesia effect”. It is believed that this was not always true.

At one time, we were fully aware of being spirits in physical bodies. This freedom to fully experience the Matrix changed when the technology became more sophisticated and it was used for serious scientific studies. It is thought that when these limitations were first conceived and instituted, it was to give a greater sense of reality to the simulated environments we experience while in the Matrix. Later, these limitations were said by the Administrators to be a necessary component of the experiments they conducted. It could be explained in the same way a medical researcher might conduct a double-blind study of an investigational medication. The results of a particular experiment need to be untainted and pure. Therefore, volunteers agree to abide by these terms and conditions.

Over time, dark entities became aware of these experiments and began to infiltrate the Matrix. Higher intelligent extra-dimensional aliens were successful in influencing the Matrix Administrators for their own hidden agendas. The Matrix technology was successfully usurped and subverted for sinister purposes by dark beings who sought to dominate and control humanity. We became slaves of Dark Forces long ago.

One way Dark Forces have managed to subvert the Matrix is by influencing the Cosmic Administrators to encourage humans to enter into karmic contracts and abusive relationships. The ‘Cosmic Administrators’ promote karmic contracts as a fast track approach to gaining personal insight and spiritual mastery. Pain and suffering in life is almost considered a badge of honour by those who choose the emotional roller coaster ride of karmic relationships. Those who have suffered the most in life have bragging rights for their hard-won lessons.

Many of the lower vibrational predatory entities directly invade our reality to feed on our life force. These astral predators are what people call “demons” or “dark spirits”. These negative parasites and predatory beings are clever enough to keep human spirits stuck in their emotional trauma so that they can continue to use them for sustenance. Predatory spirits will reinforce beliefs in illusory places like the biblical Hell. Human spirits do not realize they have the power to leave these places, as their captors take on fearsome forms to maintain the illusion for long as possible.

It has been written, there are also beings who create places of bliss (like the biblical Heaven) for humans in the afterlife. These spirits feed on love and the positive energy to maintain their vitality.

According to researchers and writers on the origins of humanity, such as Zecharia Sitchin, higher intelligent alien species have waged battles with each other to control humanity and this planet since ancient times. It is possible humanity has been conquered by several different alien races several times throughout our history. These advanced races were able to manipulate humans into believing they were “gods”. Our ancestors worshipped these beings and even made sacrifices to them. Humans led major bloody wars in their names.

As the BAML memorandum states, we may actually be trapped in a simulated past period that we keep playing out. The Matrix might be keeping us in programmed continuous ‘time loop’. This condition might account for paranormal phenomenon such as time distortion, deja vu, and the Mandala Effect. Or perhaps human spirits are being conned into playing roles in certain “movies” for “personal growth”. That would mean the movie never really changes. Only the people playing the roles might change, unless people decide to reincarnate into the same life over and over until they ‘get it right’.

“The theory by philosopher Nick Bostrom, most famous for warning of artificial intelligence wiping out humanity, suggests advancements in virtual reality and video games prove it’s entirely possible we could be living in a simulation that’s “indistinguishable from reality,”.

http://www.syracuse.com/us-news/index.ssf/2016/09/bank_of_america_the_matrix_reality.html

If this is true, then all the global events are part of the this “movie” we are acting out. Even World War III or a ‘Judgement Day’ apocalypse would just be another scene in the movie.

It’s not that these external events are somehow unreal or a convincing hallucination of the mind. You could take it to be the ‘Illusion of Reality’. The experience of life is certainly “real” on a certain level. In other words, you can play a leading role in the Broadway play “Annie”. The experience of playing out the story of Annie is a real, but the storyline is made up. Eventually the illusion will come to an end. The real problem is when we take this illusion, and all the lies that go with it, to be the sacred and undeniable truth.

It is when we realize the illusory nature of our reality that we are able to step out the Matrix and experience true freedom.

    This world and the time/space continuum are most definitely a matrix of sorts. It is much more complex than a computer program however, and it needs The Mind of The Sovereign Being to exist. Outside of the reality of this dimension there are other dimension’s which CONTAIN this one – our only known reality furthermore, this higher plane of reality is not dependent on this reality for its existence BUT this reality IS dependent on the higher reality.

    They are toying with things right now in search of a “portal” from this reality into the higher realms using CERN, the Large Hadron Particle Collider in Switzerland. They may be very shocked at what they find.

    The bible explains that God is ever “stretching out” this universe like a tent to dwell in:

    “It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:” Isaiah 40:22

    If something is “stretched out”, it is necessary that it has something to stretch INTO and THAT is one of the higher planes which may or may not be the Dwelling Place of God Almighty. His eternal dwelling place is most probably much higher a plane nevertheless He is sovereign over ALL regardless of how many realities exist.

    This current state of reality is a radical departure from the one that God had intended for us to inhabit. The sure notion that we are in a “dangerous” place is evident wherever we look. We “walk through the valley of the shadow of death” every day and there is no escape from it. It won’t continue forever this way however, as God will destroy this universe with “fervent heat.” 2 Peter 2:10

    Science has been searching for answers since before the time of Plato and has mused about vain things; imagining anything BUT the inescapable truth that “In the beginning, God”. The world of science endeavors to see beyond this reality like a frightened child peeking under his bed to get a glimpse of the monster he so desires to ensure himself is not there. He wants to run from the room but he can’t seem to move, frozen in place as he slowly shifts his petrified gaze to the netherworld under his comfortable mattress.

    It may be something of the sort when science opens up the great barrier God has locked; that being afforded only a glimpse, and by only a few minds capable of comprehending the mathematics suggesting its existence. Some have offered their thoughts on what may lie beyond; some have even hinted that it would be like opening a black hole right here on earth but whatever does happen, it will not hinder God who controls such things, in fact, it will be fulfilling His plan, just as it was part of His plan (in the grand scheme of things) to lock Adam out of the Garden of Eden.

    But for those who don’t resist Him, this knowledge is a highly comforting thought. He will do with what He will as far as He has purposed because nothing will ever thwart the workings of God Almighty through Jesus Christ – “the ONLY Name under Heaven whereby we must be saved”. Acts 4:12

      Good explanation.  I have a Christian background.  I’ve read the Holy Bible from beginning to end.  I also attended Bible study classes and conferences years ago.  I consider myself to be a Christian mystic. Some conservative Christian would say makes me un-christian, because I am interpreting the word of the Bible in a different way.  However, many intelligent people who have thoroughly read the Bible, can look at what’s happening in the world and come to a similar conclusion in regards to what has been written. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be taking an interest in this article (or articles like this one).

    123’s of true Christianity v popular & damnable heresies
    (simply because you “confess” it does not mean you actually are, the devil has deceived many of his own children to believe they are Christians 2Tim 3:5)
    #1 “ONE” not triune: THE ANTI CHRIST….WHERE? WHERE?….EVERYWHERE!!! …..IT”S YOU O TRINITARIAN!

    “WHO” it was (what person) that came “IN THE FLESH”, IS THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE “ANT-CHRIST”! Even Islam claims Jesus was the Jewish messiah/Christ who was to come in the flesh) they all deny “WHO” it was (what person) that came (to be the Christ) in the flesh!?!…….To deny the father is to deny the son because they are one and the same person that came in the flesh! https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/part-6-anti-christ-where-everywhere-allen-daves?trk=mp-reader-card

    JOHN 14: 8-20 where Christ specifically identifies himself (his person as the person of both the father and the HS; the only distinction is in “location” and “method of manifestation” …….Note Isaiah 9:6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: …: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, … the everlasting Father ….The son, father/Holy Spirit are all the same person, NOT like two different persons working together even as “one flesh” ….The “oneness” between Christ and the father is not comparable to a man & his wife, for only a fool would say “When you have seen me you have seen my wife, how sayest thou then, Shew us your wife?” Notice they asked to see THE FATHER and the response was Jn 14:9 ..“HAVE I BEEN SO LONG time with you, and yet hast THOU NOT KNOW ME, Philip…..Now image some fool trying to claim that statement if you asked to see his wife!?!!? You want to see the FATHER but have I been with you but you don’t know me!?!?! https://www.scribd.com/doc/305367608/The-Trinity-Heresy

    Jn 14 continued….…………..17. Even THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH; (Jn 14:6 I AM the way, THE TRUTH,) whom the world cannot receive, .. for HE DEWLLETH WITH YOU, (present tense/standing next to them in the flesh) and SHALL BE IN YOU… (future tense “In them”) 18. I will not leave you comfortless: I WILL COME TO YOU (future tense “In them”) Note: The spirit of Christ is the sprit of God and the holy spirit that is why Christ said “I will come to you” (to comfort them, because Christ is the comforter). The spirit was standing next to them in flesh… ….latter it would come to them to be inside of them (inside of their flesh as the spirit we are given)…..that is why. he would send the spirit…… However, Jesus himself here makes the point that the same person who was the HOLY SPIRIT that would come was standing next to them but lets them know “I will come to you again to be Inside of you”

    The whole point to Gal 3:20.a mediator is NOT A MEDIATOR OF ONE, (HEIS) but GOD IS ONE. (HEIS) again, point blank, identifies the number of persons of God! The “but” points out the contrast between multiple persons in a mediation party v the “one” of God. God is not like a mediation party with multiple different persons. …..”the express image of his person” ( the person of God; singular not plural).Any attempt to lay claim otherwise is willful ignorance and delusional nonsense https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/part-1-echadechadmy-godgod-echad-allen-daves?trk=mp-reader-card

    NOTE: don’t be that one in prov 26:12 over my use of the word “fool” here prov 18:13 (https://www.scribd.com/presentation/322007258/Fools ) “But but, the gospel of John…the Gospel of John …look look…” which is quite ironic since the gospel of John does not leave ANY room for multiple different persons of Jesus and father. However the gospel of John does leave a few verses that facilitate God’s promise in 2 Thess 2:11/ Isaiah 66:4 (take note of “HAND” in verse 2,14..You just can’t make this stuff up…God is surely laughing at these fools; Ps 2:1&4)

    ……Mark 12:28…Which is the first commandment of all? 29. …Hear, O Israel; THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD: 30. And ………..this is the first commandment….. 31. And the second is…..
    JESUS IS GOD AND IS THE FULLFILMENT OF ALL THE LAW AND PROPHETS SO IF YOU CAN’T GET THIS “FIRST OF ALL COMMANDMENTS” RIGHT, ALL THE REST OF YOUR “FAITH” AND PREACHING ON SIN IS MOOT

    TRINITARIANS CONFESS JESUS /THEY ARE NOT POLYTHEIST BUT ARE MONOTHEIST LIKE A LIAR & THIEF WHO “CONFESS” THEY DO NOT LIE OR STEAL The simple fact is that just because you confess or deny that you are in an adulterous relationship and denounce all forms of adultery has nothing to do with whether or not it is in fact adulterous! .. …A rose by any other name is still just a rose AND calling it a water lily does not change the definition of what a water Lilly or a rose is either!…No, Trinitarians confess & preach literally …”ANOTHER JESUS” 2 Cor 11:4

    - Like a thief in your house caught stealing your things insisting he was not there stealing “I CONFESS I am NOT stealing”. You just do not “properly understand” what he is doing/saying. Further, since you never had a “proper understanding” of what he is doing/saying you have no business accusing him since you do not even know what you are talking about in the first place. It is with and in your own ignorance that you base your “false accusations” & “ad homonym attacks” against him…… Ridiculous of course it is ……2Thess 2:11; Titus 1:16; 2Tim 3:5;

    - A Favorite tool for pathological liars is to use incongruent definitions or create oxymorons out of synonyms such as “a person” and “a being” so as to claim that your god is THREE DIFFERENT PERSONS but ONLY ONE BEING: Which is (1) no different then trying to claim that “THREE DIFFERENT CARS” is “THE ONE VEHICLE” (2) blatant demonstration of the dishonesty & sorcery these children of hell will employ with “a strait face” (which is in part what it means to be a pathological liar)
    ……but, ah i remember how this game is played… “God is three in one” (or 1in 3 or 3in one et al) should have given you a hint, harking back to Satan in The garden…God said you will die…Satan comes along and states no you will be more WISE……today .God said He is one; but Satan’s children come along and say no three is more WISE and humble in the face of God’s grandeur only “a mystery” that can be understood “in faith”. God uses head and right arm to explain the distinctions between father and son.. However, the Trinitarian heretics say to the effect: “NO, that is just a figure of speech, or that is not what God really means. What God is really saying is that God is three different persons”. Fools, hypocrites and blind guides, God said he was One and by your traditions and vain imaginations have taken the words of God and made them of no effect, refashioning God into your image!

    #2 SECOND COMING Thou Fool! “I come quickly” so “Hold fast
    till i come”… NOT …“in another 2000 yrs I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in the war of AD70 are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8/ you cant love an appearing you deny& the context is the 2nd coming not the first)… Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And
    they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES.
    2Thess 2: 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    (1) “PREDESTINED DAMNED” who were NEVER written in the book of life ………..Rev 17: 8 WHOSE NAMES WERE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, …as contrasted …EPH 1: 4. According as he hath CHOSEN US in him BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD

    (2) “MANY CALLED”= ONLY and ALL SAINTS (those who come to Christ) are written in the book of life … Philippians 4:3… ……Rev 21:27; (Only saints are Called and elect; Rom 1:6-7 et al) This is THE CHRUCH and ONLY these can have their names blotted out of the book of life ….….Heb 12:23 to the general assembly and CHURCH of the firstborn … WHICH ………are WRITTEN in heaven,

    (3) THE FEW CHOSEN: Those saints who were alive in group #2 who are now physically dead. They died “faithful” these are the FEW that were chosen faithful…….Rev 3:5. ……; and I
    will not BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, (Ps 69:28) …. These are the FEW that are CHOSEN and now that they have died and are saved then “once saved THEY CAN NEVER BE LOST”

    No may be about it. Twilight Zone, Outer Limits. Only Hollywood could have dreamed up this one but it is real. Only solution is a world wide debt cancelling Jubilee. Make the banker gangsters pay for what they have done.

    Come out of the Matrix, humanity is asleep in the Matrix.

    • Det David Love

      I agree we’re in a kind of dark matrix. You’re also right about trying to make this prison a better place to live. We could cancel everyone’s debt or we can move to alternative currencies.

  • dennisR8

    The Human body is really a digital simulation of an analog reality. Reality is a resurrected human body with a human spirit inside, both created by the Hebrew God of Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob, that for all eternity. In the meantime we live here in this digital Matrix of unreality waiting for that event. Find faith, you have access to the source of the truth, HIS Word.

    • Det David Love

      Sounds like we’re basically all on the same page regarding this situation. :)
