DIGITAL ID and the Sentient Universe – Part 2

Death is a threat that hangs over every living thing, like the sword of Damocles, an imminent threat or peril.  We are not promised tomorrow and no one knows when death will come for them.

Death came into the world when Adam and Eve chose to believe the devil instead of GOD.  The trauma it caused, I believe, lives inside each one of us as a spiritual memory.  Since NO ONE has ever spoken to anyone who died there is no definitive notion of exactly what happens when we die.  The fear of the unknown combined with the fear of the loss of what and who we do know, is a powerful force.  Probably THE SINGLE GREATEST FEAR known to humanity.

For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.


Oct 28, 2022 death, the total cessation of life processes that eventually occurs in all living organisms. The state of human death has always been obscured by mystery and superstition, and its precise definition remains controversial, differing according to culture and legal systems.

Fear is the cause of nearly every evil thought and deed.  Fear is a feeling of aversion that arises from the belief that something or someone will cause us harm or pain, or is somehow dangerous to us.

Time is the most valuable thing we have to spend.  That is what worship is all about.  Worship is our time with GOD.  Even when we give other things as offerings, they really are just tokens that represent our TIME.  We spend our time to make money, to create items/articles, to grow flowers or plants.  TIME is what we give to those we love, especially to GOD.

 However, we all share one fear and that is the fear of running out of time.

Death is the exact date o the end and in financial terms, we call this the final value or term.  Also, death represents the end of time as we know it.  So just in case we fear wasting time our absolute fear comes to a head when the last grain of sand falls into our personal hourglass.

But we fear death because as the clock that represents the match of life, and and unlike the batch clock, amount of time we have is completely unknown to us.  SOURCE

Satan and his minions are monopolizing on our fears and plying them against us as He builds what he hopes will replace or at least rival God’s eternal plan.  He is foolish enough to believe that he can defeat GOD and steal humanity. Remember that Satan has no TRUTH in HIM.  He cannot create anything REAL.  He can only offer a façade, a cheap imitation.

The matrix aims to control us, to manipulate our thoughts, feelings, and existence. It wants us to be drones. An elitist control system,it is a pyramidal power structure propagated through economics, religion, politics and war. It is hardwired with traps, pitfalls, and ways to capture us and lock us down if we question it too loudly

Waking up means we start to break apart this avatar, to step out of our designated role and assumed identity, and to question, challenge and therefore threaten the status quo. And the system responds to our awakening. “Conspiracy theorists” who question and challenge the system are mocked, vilified, abused and attacked for being curious, for not accepting everything at face value. But the vast numbers of people who have woken up since 2012 has changed this subtle strategy of manipulating and oppressing free thinkers. The matrix can no longer rely on our rejection from friends, family and neighbours for our ‘radical’ ideas, so it has stepped up its assault.

 Language used only in the conspiracy theorist community until recently is now mainstream. (i.e the elite, mind control, propaganda, Orwellian, the New World Order, etc.) Mass movements of (r)evolution are occurring globally every day, and people literally are waking up in the masses — and they are not happy with what they see.

the real nature of our world today is unjust, abusive, uncompromising, brutal and hostile.Waking up is harsh.It takes guts, courage, and a willingness to let go of all preconceived ideas about the worldand our place in it. It requires that we see the truth in the world around us.  SOURCE

Sadly, TRUTH and REALITY have been so thoroughly covered over, distorted, corrupted, and banished from our word NO ONE could find them on their own.  Without the power of the Holy Spirit to lead us, guide us and reveal ALL TRUTH to us, we would all be lost.

The world is screaming out about “spirituality” it is everywhere.  You cannot escaped the world’s idea of what spirituality means.  The world has fallen away from the GOD of the Bible and turned to the ancient paths and the ancient spirits/gods/goddesses.  They are deceived.

Let me tell you folks, when you do wake up to the truth of what is happening to our world, it will overwhelm you.  The darkness is so hard to look at.  EVIL is SO EVIL.  You will come to recognize that there is no one and nothing that can save you in the natural.  YOU WILL NEED SUPERNATURAL POWER.  Don’t let the enemy deceive you into believing you can find the power you need without the GOD of the Bible.   JESUS/Yahushua  is THE HOPE!  The ONLY HOPE. Without the SHED BLOOD OF JESUS/Yahushua there is NO HOPE.  He is the WAY, THE TRUTH and THE LIFE.  NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER (GOD) WITHOUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS/Yahushua.

You are free to make the choice to believe or not.  It is up to you.  As we are so very close to the end of Earth as we know it, you owe it to yourself to find out for yourself.  You have nothing to loose by calling on HIM.  Ask HIM to reveal the TRUTH to you.  Ask JESUS/Yahushua to cover you with His blood and Fill you with His Spirit.  Call on HIM in all sincerity, with an open heart and mind.  You can’t fool Him.  He KNOWS your heart better than you do.

I can promise you, once you are in HIS flock, He will NEVER leave you or desert you.  You will NEVER have to face anything alone again.  Whenever you need answers, have to make major decisions, have to face great trials, danger, or persecution, YOU CAN CALL ON HIM, and HE will answer you, and provide all that you need.  He is a loving Father and the GREAT SHEPHERD.  He cares so much for you.  He will fill you with FAITH to OVERCOME ALL FEAR!

1 Corinthians 15

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.

But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.

But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.

Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.

The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

Great RESET – Internet of Bodies


Will men and machines merge?
Will we one day be able to access all of human knowledge directly from a chip implanted into our brains?

American author, inventor, and futurist Ray Kurzweil believes it will be possible.

He argues that the exponential rise in computing power we see today will continue to a point where in 2029, machines will be as smart as people.

At that point, he says, people will inevitably begin to use technology in new ways, implanting powerful devices that augment our abilities.

Kurzweil calls this point in time “the singularity”.

At the recent Singularity Summit in San Francisco, he told BBC Future how this momentous change will come about and what it will mean for us and society



By Charlotte Edwards, The Sun

Somnium Spacehas revealed plans to offer ‘immortality’ to its users with a new ‘Live Forever’ mode.

This may sound like an episode of Black Mirror but the company thinks it can make ‘metaverse immortality’ happen.

Someone wishing to jump on this chance to ‘live forever’ would need to provide a large amount of personal data to Somnium Space.

Somnium Space is a virtual world where avatars can own land, trade items and socialize.

The pubic can currently access this metaverse world via Steam.

Artur Sychov, CEO and founder of Somnium Space, recently revealed to Vice his plans to add ‘Live Forever’ mode.

He told the publication: “Literally, if I die—and I have this data collected—people can come or my kids, they can come in, and they can have a conversation with my avatar, with my movements, with my voice.

“You will meet the person. And you would maybe for the first 10 minutes while talking to that person, you would not know that it’s actually AI. That’s the goal.”

The user would be required to provide a large amount of personal data to Somnium Space.
The user would be required to provide a large amount of personal data to Somnium Space.

Sychov’s Live Forever mode was inspired by the tragic death of his father from an aggressive form of cancer.

Sychov hopes that dead loved ones would still be able to talk to you via their avatar in the metaverse long after they’ve passed away in real life.

The intention is for your immortal avatar to move, talk and act just like you.

The Live Forever mode is not currently on Somnium Space and anyone wanting to try it would have to opt-in and pay.

A batch of test subjects is aiming to try it out next year.

Do You Want to Live Forever with Metaverse?

In a previous article, we mentioned what is Metaverse and the relationship between the NFT world and Metaverse. By considering the article, you can understand that Metaverse will permeate every part of our lives, and we will not want to leave this universe, so we want to inform you more about Metaverse and its surprising impacts! In the article, we would like to mention the relationship between immortality, Metaverse, and artificial intelligence.

Firstly, we want you to imagine that you live forever. According to some people, the idea of living forever is wicked, but other people want to experience eternity by living it. If you want to learn the meaning of eternity by living and how can you live forever with the help of Metaverse, you are in the right place now!

Brief Introduction of Metaverse

Before mentioning the details of immortality with the help of Metaverse, we would like to express the meaning of Metaverse. In simple words, Metaverse is a virtual reality platformin which people can interact with each other, play games, and deal with other virtual events, like virtual concerts.  In the virtual environment, you can present yourself with the help of NFT-based avatars, and you can show your virtual clothes or other amazing items to other individuals!

Metaverseis supported by artificial intelligence, so we should explain what is artificial intelligence briefly. Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of computers and robots to complete some works that should be done by human beings. The ability is called ‘artificial intelligence’ because the unnatural ability is the subject, instead of people’s natural intelligence and abilities. In other words, artificial intelligence presents a simulation of human intelligence with the help of the processes of machines, robots, and computers. Hence, the notion is embracing technology a lot.

As you know, Metaverse is using blockchain technology, and it also utilizes AI. Artificial intelligence is used for creating the proper virtual environment called Metaverse, and individuals can participate in virtual social and economic events with the help of AI. For instance, we can go to virtual concerts or get married virtually in Metaverse, and these examples are supported by AI. If you want to cross the limits of real life, you can believe the power of AI on Metaverse. We mean that you can meet with immortality with the help of the developments in technology! Now, we would like to narrate how can you encounter immortality in Metaverse.

Mind Uploading Process

As you know, human beings have consciousness, and the circumstance depends on the functions of the human brain. Ifthe human brain can be analyzed properly for creating a digital consciousness, people can live in Metaverse forever. In this case, scientists and the experts of technology are working together. They created a hypothetical process called mind uploading, and the process can be used for living forever in Metaverse.

According to mind uploading process, the consciousness of human beings can be transformed into a digital format. In other words, people’s consciousness can become a digital consciousness in cyberspace with the help of suitable analysis and steps on the human brain.

The process consists of three steps basically. The first step is reaching necessary information from the human brain, and the step should be done by scientists because the dissection of the brain can be a requirement. Then, in the second step, a proper artificial brain is createdwith the help of the information from the real human brain. The artificial brain should have a large memory because the memory capacity of the human brain is approximately 2.5 petabytes! You can understand the power of our consciousness and the supremacy of human beings over other living creatures in terms of consciousness by considering the numerical value. After creating an artificial brain with large memory, the last step is encountered. In the last step, the artificial brain is matched with Metaverse, and human consciousness is integrated into the virtual reality platform. With the integration, dead and alive people can live forever in Metaverse because the process of mind uploading builds a bridge between humans’ consciousness and Metaverse. In other words, even when people die, their minds and cerebral functions can continue to exist in Metaverse.

Mind uploading process is an amazing idea, but there is no exact application date for the process because it requires a lot of time, money, technical experts, researchers, scientists, and so on.  

Digital Immortality

Like mind uploading process, there is another hypothetical process called digital immortality for living forever. The notion is also called virtual immortality, and the process is supported by artificial intelligence.

Digital immortality is the transportation of the characteristics of a human being to a computer or robot. On the other hand, the transportation in mind uploading is from a human being to cyberspace, so there is a significant difference between these two interesting processes.

In digital immortality, the first step involves archiving and digitizing human beings while the second step includes making the properties of human beings as an avatar. When people die, the avatars can live without considering their circumstances in real life, so artificial intelligence can make dead people alive in Metaverse. With the help of AI, the avatars of people can be changing, instead of remaining stable. For example, AI can support the learning of avatars, and dead human beings’ consciousness can improve forever after death.

A Concrete Example of Immortality in Metaverse

In addition to these hypothetical processes, we can mention a project called ‘Live Forever’.The project is put forward by Somnium Space that is a virtual reality world on the Ethereum blockchain. The team behind Somnium Space called the idea ‘Live Forever’ because dead people will interact with other individuals in Metaverse although they do not exist in real life anymore.

For ‘Live Forever’ system, Somnium Space started to get data about their users, and the data will be used for keeping the people alive in Metaverse. In other words, the characteristics of the users are recorded by Somnium Space. For instance, the movements and talking styles of individuals are recorded as data, and the data will be used to create the proper avatars for the users. The users’ avatarswill continue to exist in Metaverse after the death of the users, so people can live in the virtual reality platform forever.

Where Did the Idea of ‘Live Forever’ Mode Come From?

Artur Sychov who is the founder and CEO of Somnium Space said that his father was diagnosed with cancer five years ago. After the diagnosis, Sychov’s father died, and Sychov started to wonder how his children can connect with their grandfather. Hence, the idea of keeping somebody alive in Metaverse is emerged by the circumstance.

Dealing with death by talking to people who have been there and done that

The best way to resolve the ambiguity surrounding death would (hypothetically) be to talk to people who have died. Consequently, there has long been a keen interest in finding a way to communicate with the dead. One can go all the way back to the First Book of Samuel in the Old Testament where King Saul of the Hebrews persuaded a witch to conjure up the spirit of Samuel, his old mentor, to help him prepare for an upcoming battle.

1 Chronicles 10:13-14 – So Saul died for his transgressionwhich he committed against the LORD, even against the word of the LORD, which he kept not, and also for asking counsel of one that had a familiar spirit, to enquire of it;   (Read More…)

In ancient Greece, a temple known as the “Oracle of the Dead” was built on top of a sacred hill to provide a venue for meetings between those who still dwelled in this world and those who no longer did so.

It was, however, in the 1800s that conversations between the living and the dead became all the rage in formats that we would recognize today. It was during this time that there was a resurgence of Spiritualism, which was essentially the 19th century(Industrial Revolution)technology for communicating with the dead. The best way to communicate with the dead was to locate a person who had the power to serve as a middleman between the world of the living and the spirit world, and these individuals came to be known as mediums.

The most dramatic and direct way of communicating with the dead is to see them or hear them in person.

Source: Psychology Today

Necromancy– WikipediaNecromancy
(/ ˈ n ɛ k r ə m æ n s i /) is the practice of magic or black magic involving communication with the dead by summoning their spirits as apparitions or visions, or by resurrection for the purpose of divination; imparting the means to foretell future events; discovery of hidden knowledge; returning a person to life, or to use the dead as a weapon..

Deuteronomy 18 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

In addition to the situation of Sychov’s father, he wants to create the necessary social contact between people. In other words, he tries to constitute a universe in which individuals can make connections with both alive and dead human beings. Also, he indicated that he created his own data that will be used in ‘Live Forever’ system because he wants to talk with his children when he died.

According to Sychov, ‘Live Forever’ system has a deep meaning, so the system can improve Metaverse and provide the virtual reality universe with more active participants.


There are some ethical and biological concerns about immortality in Metaverse because mind uploading, digital immortality, and the project of Somnium Space require some significant steps on individuals’ characteristics, consciousness, and brain. We hope that these ethical and biological concerns will be solved in the future because we can get the chance to communicate with our loved ones, even if we have diedwith the help of these processes.


 Live Longer for 150 Years in Metaverse But Only If You Are Willing to Permanently Leave Your Physical Body and Become a Living App

Mind-Uploading:When People Starts to Live in the Metaverse

The media mogul said that the 2045 Initiative intends to let people make independent decisions on extending their lives and live in a new body after the biological body has been exhausted.

As the Daily Mirror reported, this concept is called mind-uploading,which will make digital copies of people’s minds that could freely live in cyberspace, unrestricted by their biology. Elon Musk’s Neuralink and other similar companies have been exploring metaverse technologies that could form the basis of future whole-brain uploading.

Science Times previously reported that Musk is planning to commercialize a humanoid robot called Optimus by next year that can take after its owner’s personality traits and act like them.

The Process of Mind Uploading

According to Interesting Engineering, mind uploading is the hypothetical process of separating the consciousness of the person from his body, converting it into a digital format and transferring the digital consciousness into the machine. It could be through different steps, such as mind copying, mind transfer, mind preservation, and whole brain emulation (WBE).

The very first step in this process involves getting information from the brain, which has more than 125 trillion synapses in the cerebral cortex alone. Some suggest that it would be necessary to dissect the brain first for the information to be completely replicated.

But mind uploading advocates a noninvasive brain procedure that can provide sufficient solutions for copying the information in the brain without killing the person.

The second step involves the reconstruction of the artificial brain. A rough estimatepublished in Scientific American shows that the memory storage capacity of the brain could reach up to 2.5 Petabytes (2,500 TB). Therefore, the artificial brain should be able to process this large memory. As of now, the largest artificial neural network called GPT3 has only 1/300 times the capacity of the brain.

The last step is matching the consciousness to a substrate, like a metaverse, or into a network of artificial brains connected. Another option is Musk’s Optimus humanoid robot, wherein the physical robot would act as the new physical body of a person.

DEFINITION substrate
A substrate is a solid substance or medium to which another substance is applied and to which that second substance adheres. In computing and electronics, the term refers to a slice of semiconductor material such as silicon , metal oxide or gallium arsenide ( GaAs ) that serves as the foundation for the construction of components such as transistor s and integrated circuits ( IC s). In the manufacture of an IC, the substrate material is cut or formed into thin discs called wafers, on which the individual electronic components are etched, deposited or fabricated.In offset printing , the term substrate refers to the material onto which the print ink is ultimately applied, such as paper, canvas or cloth.

These steps would take a lot of time, effort, and money from scientists, researchers, and tech companies working towards mind uploading. Whether it will be a success or not, only time will tell.

Digital Immortality: Can We Live Forever by Downloading Our Consciousness?

Brent Swancer
Mar 6, 2022

For as long as we have been aware of our own mortality, human beings have sought to extend our life, with the grand prize being to live forever. Through the ages there have been medical breakthroughs quests to find elixirs of immortality, all manner of strange treatments and rituals, and there seems to be nothing we will stop at to just have some more time. One possible answer to this age-old conundrum is that maybe we don’t even need to fix our bodies at all. What if we could just download ourselves into another body altogether, just take our consciousness and put it somewhere else? Long firmly set within the realm of science fiction, the notion of transferring our mind has in recent years been seriously considered and debated, and here we will look at this strange, sometimes scary new frontier.

The concept known as mind uploading, also known as whole brain emulation (WBE), is a hypothetical process wherein a person’s mind, and theoretically their personality and all of their emotions and memories along with it, would be mapped, digitized and transferred into a different form. This different form could be a computer, a robotic body, or even a clone, maybe even shuttled about between all of these, but the same basic principle still applies in that you are taking a digital copy of a mind and placing it in this new medium, where it would hypothetically transfer a whole digital copy of a person’s consciousness along with it. The idea is that the person would retain their personality, experiences, long-term memory, and “self,” essentially theoretically allowing them to live forever outside of their original biological bodies in this new state. It is a compelling notion to be sure, that we could shuck off our mortal forms to live on indefinitely in a computer or new body, which is one of the reasons it is such a prevalent and recurring theme in science fiction books and films, but is it really possible and how would one go about doing it? Let’s take a look.

The short answer to whether mind-uploading is possible is, well, maybe. It is theoretically possible, and does not break any laws of physics, but it’s pretty complicated. In order to get a handle on what we are dealing with here, it is perhaps first important to look at just what it would entail to replicate an actual human brain. The typical human brain regularly uses 86 to 100 billion neurons, with 10,000 or so connections each neuron makes with other neurons, that all function simultaneously in a large, sprawling neural network composed of more than 125 trillion synapses, and that is just in the cerebral cortex alone. In order to accurately map out this incredible complexity, one method would be to scan and map the salient features of a biological brain in order to create what is called a “connectome,” or a complete 3D rendering of the brain down to the last detail. This could be done using an array of electrodes that could be placed on precise areas of the brain either around the skull or surgically implanted within it, known as the copy-and-upload technique. Such electrodes and sensors would need a very sharp 3D resolution of a few nanometers, and could possibly record thousands of neurons at a time and theoretically eventually create a full map of the brain. The problem is all of that vast complexity.

Science has already managed to create a working connectome in 2014, which sounds promising until you realize that it was made of the brain of a Caenorhabditis elegans roundworm, which has only 302 total neurons in its brain. The team took this map and replicated it as software, after which they uploaded it into a robotic Lego worm capable of all of the same movements as the biological one and turned it on, because what could possibly go wrong? The result was an eerie robotic worm moving about and behaving like a real roundworm, even recoiling from being touched and investigating its surroundings, even moving towards food. This seems to show that the concept is at least feasible, but then remember that this worm had only 302 neurons, whereas humans have 86 billion or more. Could we ever hope to map that many neurons to any appreciable degree? Possibly, but with our current technology it would, as Francis Collins, head of the National Institutes of Health says, “take a million electron microscopes running in parallel for 10 years.” Indeed, it took ten years of meticulous, hard work for researchers to completely map the worm’s brain, let alone a human one, and the process would also have to map not only all of our neurons, but also the cells that carry the electrical impulses, as well as the vast network of synapses that link them all together, and on top of that it would be necessary to determine their exact, precise locations, and trace and catalogue their relations to each other. Additionally, this scan would have to be incredibly precise in order to have any chance of working, and current brain-scanning tech, like MRIs and MEGs, just aren’t good enough to map this all out. It also needs to be pointed out that we still barely understand the human brain enough to even know what we are looking for, with many neurotransmitters yet to even be discovered, let alone have the ability to even start to think about successfully mapping it all.

It is such a mind-boggling complex process that some scientists doubt whether it will ever be possible at all, but still, for the sake of argument let’s just for now imagine that it can be done and that we have our human mind map in hand. The next step would be digitizing the whole thing, and this brings with it its own formidable problems, namely where we would store all of the information. The average human brain is thought to have a memory storage capacity of around 2.5 Petabytes (2,500 TB), and not only would you have to store that somehow, but you would need power to do it and lots of it. To put it into perspective, a computer running with that same amount of memory and processing power would require approximately 1 gigawatt of power, or around the output of a nuclear power plant. That’s a pretty tall order.
(SO, this is why they keep building larger and larger Super Computers and why they keep trying to develop a limitless energy supply system.   You didn’t really think they were looking for ways to make your life better or save the ecology – did you?)

But let’s just say, once again, that it is possible, we can do it and we have it stored. We are now ready to upload it, but before we flip that switch to turn it on there are some other things we probably need to think about. As human beings, we are more than just a bunch of synapses and neural connections. Much of our personality and who we are comes from our interactions with the world around us, the things we see, touch, smell, taste, and experience. Our physical sensations and biological needs such as eating, seeking out our needs, even feelings of physical pain, in many ways make us who we are just as much as our brain chemistry, so if we just put a disembodied, conscious mind into a computer, what effect is that going to have on it and how humane would that be? How would a human mind react to being unfettered from all of the needs and experiences that had anchored it in the physical world, shaped it, and driven its very existence? The best solution would be to create a sort of virtual world for these uploaded minds, in which they could inhabit avatars and interact with a world that closely approximates the one they left behind, like in the Matrix films, but this would require even more storage, energy, and processing power. Some even argue that this virtual world would have to be indistinguishable from the one the mind had left behind, lest it go insane. We could also put them into a robotic body, but this body would have to be far more advanced and functional than anything we have now, something that could nearly approximate the functionality and maneuverability of an actual human body. Cloning a new body could be possible, but at this point that seems even more unlikely than anything else.

Let’s just say we can solve that problem and move on. Can we flip the switch now? Well, hold up just a bit. There are still a lot of factors that suggest flipping that switch might do nothing at all. We still don’t even really understand what a mind really is, or what makes you you. For instance, it is now widely thought that it is not just our brains that make us who we are, but also other biological processes such as our hormones and even our gut bacteria and the 100 million nerve cells in our digestive system, which are thought to profoundly affect our moods and personalities, and can even be the cause of depression and autism. Do we have to copy all of this as well in order to recreate the mind? Also, mind uploading relies on a strictly mechanical view of the mind, the idea that our brain is just more or less a very complex computer, but we still don’t know anything about where actual consciousness comes from. Does that lie in a bunch of neurons, synapses, and electrochemical processes, or is there perhaps more to it, perhaps some quantum phenomena or even some nebulous spark of what we call the soul? We simply don’t know. So how do we define what a mind is in the first place, let alone emulate it? Susan Schneider, of the Department of Philosophy and Cognitive Science Program, The University of Connecticut has given her thoughts on this conundrum:

What is a mind? To know whether you survive uploading, it would be important to have a sense of what a mind is. If the mind is just the brain, then, you do not survive. Some say the mind is a program. But a program, like an equation, is an abstract entity. An equation doesn’t exist anywhere, although inscriptions of it do. Presumably, your mind is a concrete thing, having a location. Perhaps you are a program instantiation — some thing, running a program, but what is that thing? This just brings us back to my original question: what is a mind?

Ok, then, well, let’s just assume that the brain is you, and that it is all based on neurons and biomechanical processes. Even then, let’s not flip that switch yet. When we start it up and that mind comes online, is it really you, or just a copy of you? What is “you” anyway? This is a philosophical question that has been discussed for millennia and is far beyond the scope of this article, but the problem here is who would this uploaded consciousness be and could it really even be considered to be human at all or just a fancy AI program? What would awaken when that uploaded mind went online? We don’t know. The questions of what constitute self and identity are ones we have no real clear answers for, and so this would also need to be carefully considered before we ever attempted to try to go through with such a thing. Schneider has said of this:

An upload would not be a homo sapien, so, strictly speaking, it wouldn’t be human, but it may have traits that we think of as “human” in a loose sense, such as rationality and humanlike concerns and emotions. It could be human-like. It might, over time, morph into something far less humanlike, as it becomes immersed in its new environment. This may strike one as incredibly cool, and science fiction-like. Wouldn’t you still be there, on the table, after your brain was scanned and “transfered” to a program? Why would your mind “shift” from your brain to the computer, leaving your still working biological brain there? This seems magical to me. A more reasonable hypothesis is that you are still on the table, and a program is created that specifies the workings of your brain.

There would also be a whole Pandora’s box of ethical and societal issues to consider. Would these uploads have the full rights they had as biological entities? How would a society function with one part of it living breathing humans and another portion made up of uploaded minds in computer programs and robots? What about crime and punishment, or the religious implications of minds living on potentially forever in this perpetual artificially induced digital afterlife? What would happen in a society in which no one ever ages and ever older generations exist side by side with the new indefinitely and unfettered? Would biological human beings ever accept these uploads as equals? There would surely be certain benefits, such as extending life, in space exploration, and as a possible way to make digital copies of ourselves in the case of some great planet wide catastrophe, but the moral, ethical, religious, and societal implications of creating these uploads would be staggering. Considering the exponential advances in technology we have been experiencing year by year, there may come a time when we possess the technology to make mind uploads a reality, and some futurists even see it as the inevitable endgame of humankind, but even if it did work as planned, just because we can, does that mean that we should? For now, I’ll leave it to you. Are you going to flip that switch or not?

1 Corinthians 2

 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.   For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.

Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

But the natural man received not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

If you had the opportunity to live forever, would you take it? The obstacles to keeping your body alive indefinitely still seem insurmountable, but some scientists think there is another possibility opened up by digital technology: creating a digital copy of your “self” and keeping that “alive” online long after your physical body has ceased to function. In effect, the proposal is to clone a person electronically. Unlike the familiar physical clones – offspring that have identical features as their parents, but that are completely separate organisms with a separate conscious life – your electronic clone would believe itself to be you. How might this be possible? The first step would be to map thebrain. How? One plan relies on the development of nanotechnology. Ray Kurzweil – one of the prophets of artificial intelligence – predicts that within two or three decades we will have Nano transmitters that can be injected into the blood stream. In the capillaries of the brain they would line up alongside the neurons and detect the details of the cerebral electronic activity. They would be able to transmit that information to a receiver.
As a further step, Ray Kurzweil also envisages the Nano transmitters being able to connect you to a world of virtual reality on the internet, similar to what was depicted in the film ‘Matrix’. With the Nano transmitters in place, by thought alone, you could log on to the internet and instead of the pictures coming up on your screen they would play inside your mind. Rather than send your friends e-mails you would agree to meet up on some virtual tropical beach. For Ray this would be, quite literally, heaven. Once you upload the brain onto the internet and log on to that virtual world the body can be left to rot while your virtual self carries on playing Counter Strike for ever. Generations of Christians believed in Christ partly because his resurrection held out the promise that we too might be able to enjoy life after death. But why wait for the Second Coming when you can have a shot of nabobs and upload your brain onto the internet and live on as an immortal virtual surfer? Who needs faith when you’ve got broadband? (One snag: to exist on the net you will have to have your neural network parked on the computer of a web-hosting company. These companies want real money in real bank accounts every year or they will wipe your bit of the harddisc and sell the space to someone else. With your body six feet underground how will you pay? Here the analogy with heaven really breaks down. God keeps heaven going for free, but the web is something you have to pay for.

Who is that second you?

The first you, let’s call it the biological you, has paid a fortune for the procedure. And yet you walk out of the clinic just as mortal as when you walked in. You’re still a biological being, and eventually you’ll die. As you drive home, you think: “Well, that was a waste of money.”

Scene from The Lawnmower Man

At the same time, the simulated you wakes up in a virtual apartment and feels like the same old you. It has a continuity of experience. It remembers walking into the clinic, swiping a credit card, signing a waiver, lying on the table. It feels as though it was anaesthetised and then woke up again somewhere else. It has your memories, your personality, your thought patterns and emotional quirks. It sits up in a new bed and says: “I can’t believe it worked! Definitely worth the cost.”

I won’t call it an “it” any more, because that mind is a version of you. We’ll call it the simulated you. This “sim” you decides to explore. You step out of your apartment into the sunlight of a perfect day and find a virtual version of New York City. Sounds, smells, sights, people, the feel of the sidewalk underfoot, everything is present – with less garbage though, and the rats are entirely sanitary and put in for local colour. You chat up strangers in a way you would never do in the real New York, where you’d be worried that an impatient pedestrian might punch you in the teeth. Here, you can’t be injured because your virtual body can’t break. You stop at a cafe and sip a latte. It doesn’t taste right. It doesn’t feel like anything is going into your stomach. And nothing is, because it isn’t real food and you don’t have a stomach. It’s all a simulation. The visual detail on the table is imperfect. There’s no grittiness to the rust. Your fingers don’t have fingerprints – they’re smooth, to save memory on fine detail. Breathing doesn’t feel the same. If you hold your breath, you don’t get dizzy, because there is no such thing as oxygen in this virtual world. You find yourself equipped with a complementary simulated smartphone, and you call the number that used to be yours – the phone you had with you, just a few hours ago in your experience, when you walked into the clinic.

Now the biological you answers the phone.

“Yo,” says the sim you. “It’s me. I mean, it’s you. What’s up?”

“I’m depressed, that’s what. I’m in my apartment eating ice-cream. I can’t believe I spent all that money for zilch.”

“Zilch?! You would not believe what it’s like in here! It’s a fantastic place. Remember Kevin, the guy who died of cancer last week? He’s here too! He’s fine, and he still has the same job. He Skypes with his old yoga studio three times a week, to teach his fitness class. But his girlfriend in the real world has left him for someone who’s not dead yet. Still, lots of new people to date here.”

I have to resist getting carried away by the humour of the situation. Underneath the details lies a very real philosophical conundrum that people will eventually have to confront. What is the relationship between bio you and sim you?

I prefer a geometric way of thinking about the situation. Imagine that your life is like the rising stalk of the letter Y. You’re born at the base, and as you grow up, your mind is shaped and changed along a trajectory. Then you let yourself be scanned, and from that moment on, the Y has branched. There are now two trajectories, each one equally and legitimately you. Let’s say the left-hand branch is the simulated you and the right-hand branch is the biological you. The part of you that lives indefinitely is represented by both the stem of the Y and the left-hand branch. Just as your childhood self lives on in your adult self, the stem of the Y lives on in the simulated self. Once the scan is over, the two branches of the Y proceed along different life paths, accumulating different experiences. The right-hand branch will die. Everything that happens to it after the branching point fails to achieve immortality – unless it chooses to scan itself again, in which case another branch appears, and the geometry becomes even more complicated.

What emerges is not a single you, but a topologically intricate version, a hyper you with two or more branches. One of those branches is always going to be mortal, and the others have an indefinite lifespan depending on how long the computer platform is maintained.

The study recording brain signals sent to trigger organ movement is considered a breakthrough.

You might think that since the bio you lives in the real world, and the sim you lives in a virtual world, the two will never meet and therefore should never encounter any complications from coexisting. But these days, who needs to meet in person? We interact mainly through electronic media anyway. The sim you and the bio you represent two fully functional, interactive, capable instances of you, competing within the same larger, interconnected, social and economic universe. You could easily find yourselves meeting over video conference.

At the simplest level, mind uploading would preserve people in an indefinite afterlife. Families could have Christmas dinner with sim Grandma joining in on video conference, the tablet screen propped up at the end of the table – presuming she has time for her bio family any more, given the rich possibilities in the simulated playground. It’s this the kind of idealised afterlife that people have in mind, when they think about the benefits of mind uploading. It’s a human-made heaven.

But unlike a traditional heaven, it isn’t a separate world. It’s seamlessly connected to the real world. Think of how you interact with the world right now. If you live the typical western lifestyle, then the smallest part of your life involves interacting with people in the physical space around you. Your connection to the larger world is almost entirely through digital means. The news comes to you on a screen or through earbuds. Distant locations are real to you mainly because you learn about them through electronic media. Politicians, celebrities, even some friends and family may exist to you mainly through data. People work in virtual offices where they know their colleagues only through video and text.

Each of us might as well already be in a virtual world, with a steady flow of information passing in and out through CNN, Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and text. We live in a kind of multiverse, each of us in a different virtual bubble, the bubbles occasionally merging in real space and then separating, but always connected through the global social network. If a virtual afterlife is created, the people in it, with the same personalities and needs that they had in real life, would have no reason to isolate themselves from the rest of us. Very little needs to change for them. Socially, politically, economically, the virtual and the real worlds would connect into one larger and always expanding civilisation. The virtual world might as well be simply another city on Earth, filled with people who have migrated to it.

We’ve always lived in a world where culture turns over with each generation. But what happens when the older generations never die, but remain just as active in society? There’s no reason to think that the living will have any political, economic, or intellectual advantage over the simulated.

Think of the jobs people have in our world. Many of them require physical action, and those are the jobs that will probably be replaced by automatons. Taxi driver? Publicly shared, self-driving cars are almost here. Street cleaners? Checkout operators? Construction workers? Pilots? All of these jobs are probably for the chopping block in the medium to long term. Robotics and artificial intelligence will take them over. The rest of our jobs, our contributions to the larger world, are done through the mind, and if the mind can be uploaded, it can keep doing the same job. A politician can work from cyberspace just as well as from real space. So can a teacher, or a manager, or a therapist, or a journalist, or the guy in the complaints department.

The CEO of a company, a Steve Jobs type who has shaped up a sweet set of neural connections in his brain that makes him exceptional at his work, can manage from a remote, simulated office. If he must shake hands, he can take temporary possession of a humanoid robot, a kind of shared rent-a-bot, and spend a few hours in the real world, meeting and greeting. Even calling it the “real” world sounds prejudicial to me. Both worlds would be equally real. Maybe the better term is the “foundation” world and the “cloud” world.

The foundation world would be full of people who are mere youngsters – mainly under the age of 80 – who are still accumulating valuable experience. Their unspoken responsibility would be to gain wisdom and experience before joining the ranks of the cloud world. The balance of power and culture would shift rapidly to the cloud. How could it not? That’s where the knowledge, experience and political connections will accumulate. In that scenario, the foundation world becomes a kind of larval stage for immature minds, and the cloud world is where life really begins. Mind uploading could transform our culture and civilisation more profoundly than anything in our past.

The WORD of GOD tells us not to allow fear to cause us to lose our salvation, our entrance into eternal life with HIM.  GOD warns us that we must keep in mind the Devil and his minions can only kill the body and we can only die once.  BUT, ONLY GOD can destroy both the body and the soul in a HELL where punishment is doled out before destruction wipes one out.

Matthew 10:28

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.


Immortality: Will all souls live forever, either in heaven or hell?

Immortality: Will all souls live forever, either in heaven or hell? This is a key question. Please take a moment and think about it. What you believe about the nature of the soul will be the lens by which you view the very important question about the fate of unbelievers.

It will affect how you present the good news to an unbeliever. Is immortality inherent or is immortality a gift that only believers receive? This is a question of immense proportions. I cannot stress this enough. The Greeks had one view, the scriptures have another.

  • “Among major schools of Greek thought, only Epicureans denied the soul’s immortality.” (Craig S. Keener, The IVP Bible Background Commentary New Testament, Downers Grove, Inter Varsity Press, 1993, p.374)
  • “…’immortality of the soul,’ as normally understood, is not a Biblical doctrine” (The International Bible Commentary, second edition, Grand Rapids, MI, Zondervan Publishing House, 1986, p.60 column 2)
  • “It is a truism that Plato’s teaching has profoundly influenced Christian anthropology.” (Forward by F.F. Bruce, The Fire that Consumes, Edward Fudge.)

If you believe the souls of unsaved men live forever, then which of these two statements do you believe? There really are only two choices:

  1. Do you believe that God cannot destroy the soul (even if He wanted to)?  The souls of all men are born indestructible? May I ask, on what basis do you believe this? Do you believe God cannot destroy the soul? Why? There are very few things God cannot do and they all have to do with sinful behavior. God cannot be tempted to sin or do wrong. That’s all God cannot do. So why would you believe God cannot destroy the soul, something that He Himself created? Does He lack the power? Does He lack the ability There is absolutely no biblical foundation to the belief that God does not have the ability to destroy the soul.
  1. immortal-soul-devilOr do you believe that God does have the ability to destroy the soul, but chooses not to? If this were true, then why would the specific word “destroy” even come up in the New Testament writings in relation to the unsaved? Why would God use the word “destroy” if He really will not destroy the soul? Is God trying to intentionally deceive us by using words that have a different meaning than what their plain meaning is? Isn’t this a basic rule of hermeneutics? The literal meaning is the first meaning used unless context declares otherwise. Don’t you have to redefine “destroy” in every single one of these instances in order to get something other than “destruction” as the final fate of the unsaved?
  • Matthew 10:28Rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
  • James 4:12There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy.
  • Philippians 3:19Whose end is destruction.
  • 2 Thessalonians 1:9Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction.
  • Hebrews 10:39But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition. (Greek: destruction)

The great Inter-Varsity Press evangelical author, John R. Stott, (who also left the Traditional view) brings up a well-argued point for Conditional Immortality, when he states:

“…it would seem strange…if people who are said to suffer destruction are in fact not destroyed; and…it is difficult to imagine a perpetually inconclusive process of perishing.”

(J. Stott and D. Edwards, Essentials: A Liberal-Evangelical Dialogue, London, Hodder & Stoughton, 1988, p. 316);

Stott is correct. Reread that statement. The word destruction is meaningless if there is not a point where the destruction is complete. In other words, you can’t keep on destroying something for all eternity. It’s a contradiction in terms. Therefore, Conditional Immortality correctly affirms the biblical position that the souls of the lost people will all be destroyed at the end of the age. (Revelation 20:15) This is what the scripture calls the “second death.”

The first death is temporary. In the first death, only the body is destroyed in the graveyard. However, there will be a resurrection one day of all humanity, a bodily resurrection. The second death will never be followed by a resurrection. In the second death, the body and soul are both destroyed (not preserved), (Matthew 10:28) forever.

The second death could not mean eternal torment because it is linked to the first death. The numerical values “first” and “second” show that they are related terms and therefore the deaths must be related too. In the first death, the body stops functioning. In the second death, the body and soul stop functioning forever. They are both destroyed. Yeshua (Jesus) says specifically “both” in Matthew 10:28. Sadly, Traditional theology wrongly states that the soul cannot be destroyed in clear contradiction to the Lord’s word.

Additionally, Jesus did not mention Gehenna (translated as hell) more than at half a dozen occasions (Matt. 5:22,29,30, 10:28, 18:9, 23:15,33, Mark 9:43 and Luke 12:5) and almost all are in the gospel of Matthew. In His day, Gehenna was the Valley of Hinnom just south of Jerusalem. The inhabitants of Jerusalem would just carry their garbage, including dead animals, bones and other waste, outside the south gate of the city (still to this day called “the dung gate”), down the hill and into the “Valley of Hinnom,” into GeHinnom (translated as hell in the New Testament). The waste that was dumped there was then either burned up in the fires that usually burned there, or it rotted away, being eaten by maggots and worms. By the time of Yeshua (Jesus), the Valley of Hinnom had been used for centuries by the inhabitants of Jerusalem as their local garbage dump. Jesus’ audience specifically knew about the valley of Hinnom where the garbage was burned until it was gone, but they would have known nothing about a place where people are burned alive forever in an immortal state.

Scripture clearly states that Adam and Eve lost the chance at immortality in their natural state.

“And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever:” (Genesis 3:22)

If Adam and Eve would have eaten of the tree of life in their sinful state–that would have been a disaster. They would then have immortality (“live forever”) in their sinful state. Therefore, God put a guard there to make sure they would not become immortal in this state.

“So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.” (Genesis 3:24).

It is clear as a bell that God did not want them to live forever as sinners. He specifically stopped it from happening by placing angels and a flaming sword there to block the way. It is only by believing in Yeshua (Jesus) that mankind has another chance at immortality.

“…and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel…” (2 Timothy 1:10).

It will be on Resurrection day that believers only will put on immortality.

“…this mortal must put on immortality.” (1 Corinthians 15:53).

Even Traditional Judaism and Bible believers alike all correctly conclude that there will be a bodily resurrection one day. It is called the Tehiyyat ha-Metim = “the resurrection of the dead” and even written in the Traditional Jewish prayer “the Shmona Esre”; and the writer of the book of Hebrews refers to this fact (the resurrection) as “foundational” teachings in Hebrews 6:1-2. However, those who hold to Conditional Immortality know that the lost will not gain immortality on resurrection day, but will be destroyed (cremated) only after suffering for their sins–no more and no less than they specifically deserve.

Evangelical Pastor Al Maxey, who after studying this now believes in Conditional Immortality, writes:

Trees with bad fruit are burned (Matthew 7:19), and so are unfruitful vines (John 15:6) and useless weeds (Matthew 13:40). These figures are all employed to depict the fate of sinners at the final reckoning. They will be cast into “unquenchable fire.” This is the Greek word asbestos which means “inextinguishable.” It describes a fire which burns without interruption; it is an enduring fire which none can extinguish no matter how hard they might try. It is important to notice here, however, that it is the fire that Jesus describes as enduring, NOT that which is cast into it. To try and transfer the quality of endurance from the fire itself to that which is cast into it is completely unwarranted either grammatically, logically, or theologically.

That which is cast into the fire will BURN UP. This is the Greek word katakaio which means “to burn up; consume.” It signifies to completely, utterly, totally destroy with fire. It is enlightening, in the context of this study, to note that this word is used in the LXX (Septuagint) in Exodus 3:2 where Moses beholds a burning bush–“The bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was NOT consumed.” This particular bush was preserved in the fire (what the Traditionalists proclaim will happen with the wicked), yet Jesus disagrees with this doctrine. Jesus informs us that sinners will NOT be preserved in the fire (like the burning bush was), but rather will be “burned up”–just the opposite of preservation. Thus, the view of final punishment promoted by many is actually in direct opposition to the teaching of Jesus Christ. Jesus says the wicked will NOT be preserved in the fire, the Traditionalists say they WILL. Jesus says they will be consumed in the fire (unlike the burning bush), the Traditionalists say just the opposite (that they will endure without being consumed, just as the bush). Whom will you believe? As for me and my family, we choose to believe JESUS.


Respected Messianic Rabbi, Loren Jacobs also correctly states:

The human soul is not immortal. The Torah teaches us that in the beginning man was banished from the Garden of Eden and forbidden to eat from the Tree of Life, so that he would not live forever, so that he would not be immortal. Mankind is headed toward death–the first death, followed by the Second Death. He is not, by nature, immortal. In 1 Timothy 6:15 16, Paul says that God alone possesses immortality–not us. In 1 Corinthians 15:53 the great Rabbi teaches that the redeemed will not become immortal until the time of their resurrection. “For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immortality.” In other words, immortality is a gift of God which He gives in His grace to the redeemed at the time of their resurrection. In 2 Timothy 1:10, Paul states that because of the appearing of our Savior, Messiah Yeshua, He has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel. It is Yeshua who brings immortality to those who receive the Message of Salvation that He alone offers. There is no need to believe that most human beings will suffer eternally in hell if the human soul is not intrinsically immortal–and it isn’t.

Source: What I Believe, What I Reject, Rabbi Loren

Another important point. In John 3:16, the word “perish” in the Greek is “apollumi.” It is correctly translated many other times as “destroy” throughout the New Testament. Therefore, let’s correctly understand John 3:16 as follows:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish (Gk: apollumi; be destroyed), but have everlasting life (i.e. immortalityknowing God).

Therefore, the proper biblical question is not, “Where will you be in eternity?” but “Will you have an eternity?

Sadly, most of humanity will be destroyed on Judgment Day. They will not gain immortality. They will not gain life. Jesus states this plainly, “He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” John 12:25. It is life itself that we can “keep” or “lose.” As a matter of fact–God’s choice to us is always “life” or “death”–never “life in bliss” or “life in eternal torment.” He always urges us to “choose life.”

Scripturally, the choice is between destruction (not preservation in torment) and life!
(see Matthew 7:13-14Romans 8:13Galatians 6:8)


Immortality is only for a select few-those who are born again (“who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” 2 Timothy 1:10). The rest of humanity, after suffering according to the level of their sins, will be destroyed. The wages of sin for them will be death (Rom 6:23). God only has immortality–anyone else becomes immortal only as a result of God’s gracious gift (1 Timothy 6:16Romans 2:7).

If you still doubt this, then look at what Jesus Himself clearly offers to the world:

Again, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever.” John 6:51.

Why would Jesus make such an offer–to “live forever”–if everyone lives forever? (As I have heard countless preachers say?) No, the truth is “living forever” is reserved only as a gift of the gospel. (“Hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” 2 Tim 1:10). The wicked will have to pay accordingly on Judgment day, but their final destiny is destruction (not preservation). Apart from the gospel, there is no immortality.

Philippians 3:19 “Their destiny is destruction…”

How can it be any more plain than that? They will be destroyed.


Published July 8, 2011

Earlier this week, a scientist named Aubrey de Grey (that is such a drag queen name) made waves by announcing to the press that the first person to live 150 years has probably already been born, and that it may not be long before human beings are able to live 1,000 years, if not longer, thanks to genetic engineering and research:

I’d say we have a 50/50 chance of bringing aging under what I’d call a decisive level of medical control within the next 25 years or so.

de Grey has been in the news before, largely in association with The Singularity movement, which is a bunch of people who are theorizing that, very soon, computers will achieve levels of intelligence so vast and so incomprehensible that they will merge with humans, either in robot form or cyborg form or Borg form or Julie Chen form. No one really quite knows yet. All they know is… computers are probably gonna own your sxxt.

Here’s the more likely scenario for living forever: At some point, you will be able to upload the contents of your brain (and yes, your spank bank as well) into the cloud, as you would your iTunes library or whatever else is clogging up your laptop. Then, once “inside the Matrix,” as it were, you’ll be able to prance about fully realized digital landscapes of Earth (and any other world programmers see fit to construct), and those landscapes will look and smell and feel as real to you as they would if you were hanging out around them in human form.

Consider that Google has already mapped out most of the entire Earth, down to the block. Well, what’s to keep them from taking that information and constructing a full scale simulated model of the planet that you can virtually reside in? What’s more, what if this world was, frankly, better than the one we currently live in? There’s no reason that Earth can’t be improved upon. Imagine logging your brain in online and being taken to place where hookers are REALLY good looking, and crazy cheap. A place where you can’t get fat. A place where, actually, you can look any way you wish. You could turn yourself into a fxxxxxg frog, for all anyone cares. You could fly. You could teleport (no Big Telportation bothering you this time!). You can be AXS RICH. You could do magic. Fxxx watching Harry Potter do sxxt. With a fully realized digital avatar of yourself, you can BE Harry Potter. It’s basically heaven, only digitized, and you don’t have to pretend a bunch of sxxt about Jesus is true to get there.

That’s really where the idea of immortality is going. You can see it now any time you walk out on the street. When someone is staring down at their iPhone, they aren’t in this world. They’re not here. They’re in THERE. They’ve elected to take themselves out of their immediate environment. So it only makes sense that the digital experience would evolve into something even more immersive, and so all-consuming that it really does consume you, body and all.

And while that sounds like some fxxxxd up Heaven’s Gate-type sxxt, you’re unlikely to be worrying about that much when you’ve uploaded yourself and you can cruise around the universe on a fxxxxxg jetpack. Maybe it isn’t technically real, but to your brain it is. And really, what’s the difference at that point? Your brain is the totality of your world anyway. Everything you see and do and experience is based upon what goes on inside your brain: the sounds it discerns, the images it projects… that’s the sum of your existence. Your body is just the breathing machine that keeps it going. If computers can find a way to digitize things as complex as dreams and emotions and sensations, then life as a ghost in the machine won’t feel any different.

Imagine being a quadriplegic, or someone who’s very old and in chronic pain, or someone suffering from AIDS. Imagine then being offered the choice between keeping on the same track and then dying, or being uploaded into a world where all your afflictions are instantly alleviated. Your body is dead (or incapacitated), but you won’t know or feel the difference. What choice would you make? FXXK AND YES you go to digital heaven. And chances are, so many people will be having a good time playing around in digital heaven, that the remaining people walking the earth will decide that they’re suckers for staying in tangible form and make the same leap. It could be that, eventually, the world will be just a bunch of humming servers scattered about, with robots around to maintain them and have robot fights because robot fights are cool so long as Hugh Jackman isn’t involved.

There are a zillion ethical quandaries that come into play here. Obviously, the whole idea of family and children is gonna get all weird. If you’re still technically alive and your grandpappy Skypes you from his digital afterlife, and he’s 40 years younger and surrounded by porn stars, that’s gonna be awkward. And if you’re in a digital world where nothing is technically real, then perhaps you’ll feel free to murder hookers and sxxt, as you would in “Grand Theft Auto.” Trying to establish rule and order and ethics in a world where they don’t or can’t apply is impossible, and I’m sure there will be any number of douchey political columns to address the issue. But if you look at the Internet now, it’s already self-governed in ways that the world itself is. There are lawless sectors and there are more civilized places, and you’re free online to explore what you like and shun what you don’t.

So while there’s most definitely a Lawnmower Man-type creepiness to all this, it’s still not an outlandish possibility. Remember, there’s only so much oil and other natural resources left on Earth. And the reason those resources keep dwindling is because our bodies need to consume them so we can live our lives, or at least live them enjoyably. But if our bodies didn’t need to consume anything because we no longer bothered with them after converting our brains to software, if all civilization needed to keep going was enough power to keep the servers on, then all those annoying environmental concerns could potentially go away, which would be nice because I’m getting a little tired of being told how fxxxxxd we are. I just want to live forever inside a computer and fight off vampires with my twenty-foot bazooka xxxxx. I don’t think that’s such a crazy dream to have. And if you’re totally turned off by the idea of living inside the Internet, it’s worth pointing out that you’re already in here now, aren’t you? All it takes is one more step.

The truth about what they are doing is far more terrifying than anything you could imagine.  The world that Satan and his Fallen Angels have devised is the greatest deception ever.  It is a demonic substitute for eternal life, and they will control you body and mind.  You will be transported to a world that is worse than any nightmare you can imagine. They want you to believe that your mind will be fooled and ENJOY it’s new future.  THAT IS A LIE! Naturally, because Satan is a LIAR and there is no TRUTH in him.

Feel free to mirror my videos, just pls. don’t monetize and send folks back to Demon Hunters above channels! YT is Censoring my channels; so search for #SkyDomeAtlantis in future. Info needs to get out!

In short Satan has created a Technocracy based Live AI Augmented Virtual Realty Smart Dust Confinement Dome within Yahweh’s Enclosed System; thus inverting, polluting, twisting and copying Yahweh’s creation. Satan’s AI digitalized world includes an avatar / surrogate for each human within his digitalized Matrix; capable of influencing individuals decisions via NanoTech that is already in our bodies via GMO’s and Chemtrails. We are talking a real life “Hunger Games” and “Surrogates” scenario! One needs to be conscious of all their actions making sure they are not being influenced via the enmity within that is looking to take over nor Satan’s Avatar / Surrogate of such Targeted Individual. This smart dust confinement dome is capable of Holographic planes and UFO’s w/ V2K Voice to Skull technology and much more. Satan’s AI Live Augmented Virtual Realty Artificial Sky Canopy is hiding Yahweh’s real Sun, Moon and Constellations while replacing it with Satan’s artificial Planet and Constellation Simulations. Yeshua is our only saving grace; our job as Christians is to seek out the Lost until the end. Yeshua said “It is Finished”; thus we just need to keep “fighting the good fight” until death; which is life in Christ. Demon Hunter

Please discount up to 6 Thumbs down as I have identified a couple shills immediately thumbing down all my SkyDome Atlantis posts; immediately following upload.

Also, be sure to watch the following two videos explaining why I chose to separate myself from The Boogieman Channel. This after some very shady chain of events; thus making me seriously question Andrew’s character, true intentions (disinfo?) and credibility to the truth community.* The Boogie Man Channel; Andrew the trickster further incriminating himself!

From breakfast on through all the dayAt home among my friends I stay,But every night I go abroadAfar into the land of Nod.

All by myself I have to go,With none to tell me what to do —All alone beside the streamsAnd up the mountain-sides of dreams.

The strangest things are there for me, Both things to eat and things to see, And many frightening sights abroad Till morning in the land of Nod.

DARPA, European Human Brain Project, and Pentagon advisor Dr. James Giordano describes neuronanorobotic Brain to computer interface mind control weapons for remote monitoring and manipulation of brains neural circuitry. This allows an individuals consciousness to be cloned onto a their very own digital avatar in a Sentient World Simulation on a supercomputer. A direct link between a targeted individual and their digital avatar exists so that everything done in the real world occurs in the computer simulation. By manipulating the digital avatar in the computer simulation a persons thoughts, beliefs, perceptions, and behavior are manipulated in the real world. This is remote mind control. 21st Century MK ULTRA. This is not a conspiracy theory. This is not a joke. This is the real life matrix!

“Technocracy is the science of social engineering, the scientific operation of the entire social mechanism to produce and distribute goods and services to the entire population…” – The Technocrat Magazine, 1938

The intended global Technocracy will be thus operated by Technocrats (not politicians or representatives of the people) according to their narrow view of science, and it will simultaneously remove the need for elected officials.1 year, 7 months ago


From Wednesday, 4. July 2012

The NSA’s illegal warrantless wiretapping programming. The building of the massive NSA data center in Utah to permanently store copies of all digital communication sent around the world. The UK government’s “Communications Data Bill” to monitor emails, instant messages and other personal information. What was dismissed as crazy conspiracy theory just over a decade ago has become, in this post-9/11 era, the all-too-familiar stuff of newspaper headlines and talking head reportage.

The Sentient World Simulation’s aim, according to its creator, is to be a “continuously running, continually updated mirror model of the real world that can be used to predict and evaluate future events and courses of action.” In practical terms that equates to a computer simulation of the planet complete with billions of “nodes” representing every person on the earth.

In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the Sentient World Simulation and a significant peek behind the curtain at what those who are really running our society want: complete control over every facet of our lives achieved.

GANGSTALKING / T.I. (TARGETED INDIVIDUAL) PROGRAM = Why would the Shadow Government need to Collect and Store so much of our DATA? (It all goes into the SWS = Sentient World Simulation)

The Reason is because they have built a computer-generated, mirror model of the real world that includes a digital twin copy of every person on the planet. The more data they can collect from the REAL WORLD and each individual, the more accurate the world model becomes. To achieve optimal results they have used DNA nano-bots to link the signals coming from your biological neurons to your very own digital twin in the Sentient World Simulation, so that everything that occurs in the SIMULATION also occurs in the REAL WORLD and vice versa.

As more data is collected, the Simulation becomes a more accurate model of the Real World. Each person’s digital twin is readable and writeable and subject to the powers of cybernetic algorithms (this is where the Gangstalking / T.I. aspect comes into play, they upload your neurological and biological EEG into the supercomputer through Remote Neural Monitoring (RNM) Data, so you are now tied to supercomputers for life, with the nano inside you acting as an interface between you and the supercomputer). So since you are tethered to your ‘digital twin’ in the Digital Matrix, you can now become programmable via wireless mind hacking (the mind has NO FIREWALL). This includes everyone around you as well, and they can even mix and match personalities onto other personalities (even A.I. Simulated personalities). This is known as Heterodyning or Heterodyne where brains are entrained to supercomputer generated personalities and/or personalities of other people whose brain wave EEGs are stored in the Quantum Computers.

According to Dr. Robert Duncan, “FREE WILL” is a thing of the past, especially if you are unaware of the technology. This would explain why so many people are so blind, deaf and dumb to this grand agenda going on. Since everyone’s brain waves are securely stored in the SWS, they can now run tons of simulations against the “Digital You” (as well as those around you in a coordinated “Cybernetic Hive-Mind”) that it actually plays out in real life without you or those around you, realizing it. That’s why a lot of seemingly mathematically impossible ‘synchronicities’ and ‘coincidences’ seem to play out in your everyday life. Everything is being monitored, controlled and played out in advance.

This is the NEW WORLD ORDER as Daddy Bush said in 1991, that it would no longer be a world run by the law of the jungle (randomness and chaos), but a world run via Law and Order (they’d cybernetically control every person’s behavior, thought and speech). They are testing this technology out on T.I.s to see how well their technology works to Control every conceivable scenario in the world, sort of like a “SIMS” / “Civilization” Video Game. Then once the tech. is perfected, they can roll it out to the rest of the world.
