My Speculations About Reality
Our existence is
based solely on software
that does not require
When I say our reality is software based without hardware one must understand
that the computer that sits on your desk though it seems it is hardware is
actually a numerical representation stored in memory that allows you to see and
touch it as if it is solid. So in a true sense it is odd to say hardware and
software. We say it because we have become accustomed to it. Everything is software. Our thought processes and senses
have been calibrated so that our reality looks and seems normal to us. So though it
may seem so, it is not odd to say software without hardware. This is normal!
The idea that our reality is
software computer based reflects the Pythagorean notion that all is number. The stone, the chair, our bodies are all numbers.
This is a good and practical model because a computer manipulates numbers.
It is this software computer that creates our reality.
Computers use a digital code based on numbers which may digital and analog.
Perhaps numbers are data. This supports Pythagoras that numbers have a reality.
Time, space and energy are all numbers.
Our minds, our thoughts, our sentience is all number. As Pythagoras said God is
a Mathematician and in fact God is Number.
Pythagoras thought numbers were divine, an expression of God’s mind..
All of existence is number
(569/70 – c. 475 BCE)
I am obviously discussing a reality generated by a computer from a relatively
primitive perspective. The computer model of reality now expressed by me using
very simple concepts and is obviously incomplete. One has to imagine our present
day computers and what they can do, then project their capacity and capability many fold and
allowing for scientific advancements and breakthroughs in unforeseen fields. When I say "all is
number" I mean all that numbers can do given that numbers have an intrinsic
reality. I use number, mathematics and computer interchangeably though there are
The universal advanced computer creates matter, time and space and sentience and everything
inside our realty. How can this be? I certainly do not know how, though I can
try to guess.
The concept that we are a software computer is speculation. I offer no evidence
other than to say it can explain everything and it is simple.
I have thought much about this subject, and in my mind the mechanics of how it
works are fuzzy but an occasionally the fog clears momentarily allowing me to
glimpse at the possibilities. I however find it difficult to express this imagination into words. There remain big gaps in my reasoning
however I believe that the mastery of mathematics and
computer science will give us power and freedom to go beyond what we thought
our limitations were.
Sometime in the future we will be able to duplicate all of realty in a
computer, using a very super advanced computer. This advanced computer may be
using the identical code as our universal computer. Or we may find the
means to tap directly into the Main
Computer. This will allows us to create other realities as
grand as ours. We will then ask what is reality. Which is real and what is
virtual. The answer, all is number thus real and virtual are synonymous. To go one step further the computer
which is very malleable will some day
be able to create sentient life.
After all it is all math. TOE, Theory
Everything is narrowed down to understanding pure mathematics.
Math offers the highest level of complexity and
using at its
I know some of you may say "Vas you have been spending too much time on your
computer that you begin to believe that realty lies within those machines." I
will not argue that point, I do spend way too much time on the computer. If it
were not for computers my idea that we, our reality resides inside a computer
probably would have been expressed in a different manner. If Pythagoras was
around today, would our primitive computers have inspired him to also gravitate
to this way of thinking? Would he also make the call that we live inside a
"software" computer? Maybe he did, well before the introduction of our
It seems that reality does not mind what we perceive as complexity. The
foundation is very basic, very simple. To reality the simple and complex are treated basically the
same. The simple multiplied many fold equals complexity.
of math is infinite. If the possibilities are infinite then this explains our
existence. If all is number then mathematically speaking self consciousness is possible.
allows for reality or existence to be the default state.
Do not be disappointed that "all is number". I am not. There is nothing one
can do to change it in any case. That "all is number" may be a benefit as as this
gives us the opportunity to examine reality to the core. All is number means
that there is order in the universe. All of realty can be
understood. All is number means that there are great possibilities. It also means that all can be understood and even more
importantly is that we will be able to manipulate our realty in ways that will
startle even the greatest science fiction writers.
The genetic code may be considered the local
code or personal program of plants, animals and
humans. The genetic code is similar to the universal code or master program that creates and runs the universe
and all of existence. In other words the genetic code and master code share many
characteristics. The genetic code is a sub-code or sub-program of the
master program. The two are connected simply because they are part of the same
computer program. Even though our genetic code looks compact to us there are
links to the master program but perhaps better described as being disbursed within the
Some evidence to backup my view or at least explain it,
even though I have no idea
how to create matter, that is something solid, I have a working model or a primitive equivalent in our present day computer programs. See computer games, a car crashing on a wall. Yes this is a
primitive example but it does exemplify what I am describing.
Another way of looking at the
computer model of reality is that our body is the means to participate in the
virtual realty. We live in a reality where all of reality is virtual. The computer that contains our realty is also virtual.
Does the master program run us or do we manipulate the master program? Is it a
give and take? I have many questions and many speculations.

Is our reality a virtual reality game played by our
higher selves for our enrichment or entertainment? If so, anything goes? Or is
our existence manifested to entertain some other higher life forms? Is
there a higher life form that requires our essence as a nutrient for its well being in the same
manner that we need to
eat to survive? I find it odd that we can even ask these questions, thought some
of you may considered that I find this odd, rather mundane.

The vastness of
the DSRVIQGCHMISMDFASSDC for short or DSR for shorter is the framework for our
perhaps other existences. Perhaps existences can happen completely separate from
each other and forever disconnected.
That all is mathematics and nothing
falls outside this phenomena will take time
research and prove. In the all is
mathematics scenario of reality is there any thing that is incidental or not
accounted for? Are there artifacts in reality which are not accounted for?
We will find that the equations we have discovered are ingrained in the
universal genetic code in a more base language or in a code which some day we
will be able to manipulate and change our reality itself, and hopefully for the
better. That all is
number will allow us to create what many theologians thought only God was
capable of. We will go even beyond the bounds of today’s science fiction even beyond fantasy. Reality is not seamless. We will find the seam and gain great knowledge and

thought, is the soul, is our dreams, our fantasy, pain, happiness all can be
numerated and computerized. Our soul, our thoughts, God is all mathematics. Mathematics is the
most basic requirement for existence. It has no mass, dimension and time and yet
it can create these and many more phenomena.
To explain that reality is all numbers,
it is our
sentience that looks at numbers, processes them and forms an image of an apple. The apple itself
is numbers. It is very
similar to a computer graphics program. A table is just numbers but the monitor
forms an image of the table. In the grand scale of things the computer, the
monitor and the viewer are also numbers. It is sentience that gives shape and
apples and time to eat them. In a sense we are a computer looking at nature
which is itself a computer. We are looking at the workings of a computer. Space and time can be simulated
inside a computer in a similar manner that our space and time is simulated. In a sense when we
dream of running from a fire we create space from our the mathematical fabric.

of reality can serve us until a better or a new technology elevates our field of
vision or some genius somehow jumps on the shoulders of his predecessors and
sees not only further but with X-ray vision penetrates the universal genetic
code, or the source code in computer lingo.
It seems logical that the neutral state
or the default state of existence is non-existence. It seems to me that the more
logical form of reality is not to have existence of anything. It is
obvious that I am wrong about this since there seems to be an existence, but if
simplicity is a fundamental principal then non-existence will be the simplest of all
possibilities. It may
be however that what we call existence is merely a form of non-existence but
this may be just a play on words. But it does seem
logical that the simplest state is non-existence. So why is there an existence?
Why do we exist? There must be a bias however so slight that mandates existence
or makes non-existence impossible.
Is the default state existence? It may be that anything other than existence
must be an
impossibility. Perhaps this is primitive thinking in the eternal cosmic dance
but one nevertheless can make the attempt of reasoning about such matters.
Is there a mathematical concept that mandates
existence? A positive times a positive equals a positive. A negative times a
negative equals a positive. A positive times a negative equals a negative.
Rather simplistic, but I believe we owe existence from the simplest phenomena.
It also occurred to me in that zero in the ultimate sense is not the absence of existence. Reality
treats zero in a different way than we do. From a mathematical
perspective existence minus existence does not equal zero or non-existence. By
default there is a mathematical asymmetry and it is this asymmetry that is the
creative force. We may be part of a negation "whatever" since nothing can come
out of nothing. But the opposite may be true in the sense, a minus X times minus
X equals a positive. Maybe this mathematical bias precludes nonexistence. It
could also be that even though in mathematics 1-1=0, or 0-0=0 in reality zero
is not zero or nothing in the absolute sense. Is it possible
that we exist due to a mathematical quark?
How can we know that we
are inside a computer?
The Thales era which
brought us science is near the end. It is to be followed by the Pythagorean era with the start of the publication of of Document A and
the realization that all is number. At
the dawn of the new millennium starts the Age of Pythagoras. During the age of
Pythagoras we will gain the vision that “all is mathematics” will be more fully
understood and realized.
This is the point that we begin
to perceive our existence as numerical. From this beginning, giving Pythagoras a
fresh new look will allow us to unleash great knowledge and power that comes with this
understanding. Advances in computer science will be the important key that will
make our future with great advances possible.
Perhaps I am expecting too much from technology to take us to higher level. It may
be that our minds have the capacity to do all that technology can. I cannot
however escape from the idea that we are unable to flap our arms or think to fly
and levitate. We
need technology to fly or levitate. It is from this base that I have pursued the
technological angle to our future advancement. It will be our mental
capacity used creatively that will push technology to a level that will allow us
to do that which the mind cannot.
Please keep in mind that
some of the above description about realty is speculation. I
will not go to war to defend anything that I cannot prove and certainly that
our realty is virtual and computer like in nature falls in this category. If only religions and
nations of the world followed my advice this would be a more peaceful world.
This debate is a scientific one where logical people or scientists can discuss
and freely disagree
without any fear of violence. It's great that scientists do not use violence to
attack the opposition. Yes, in science
there also areas of great disagreement but the opponents (not enemies) do not use
violence against each other. Often the disagreement creates the framework for
advancement not war.
