Who creates existence? Virtual reality is the answer.
There are two answers to the question how our world had started.
The religious one states that some supreme being, God made everything.
Scientific position gives even less satisfactory response saying
that is was just happy occasion of Big Bang, maybe there were
infinity of such Big Bangs before ours produces intelligence
life to be aware that there is something around, science adds.
A concept of virtual reality playground can unite science and religion.
Religious answer about God opens vicious infinite line of follow
up questions. Who created God? Who created Creator of God? Who
made Creator of God Creator? It is vicious endless cycle of questions
about who was the very first God. It is obviously cannot be resolved.
As most of us have knowledge about grandparents but very vague
information about life of far distant ancestors the same in infinite
portrait gallery of Gods the very first image is so infinite
far that never will be seen.
Scientific picture gives essentially the same answer if one renames
Big Bang into Great Fluctuation (random deviation from average
state) then will be no essential change in the story. Even if
we accept the theory that Big Bang was spontaneous phase transition
of vacuum sort of similar to crystallization of melt below melting
point the question will remains – who creates the vacuum with such properties?
Finally if you would have a chance to advance interrogate of
Science Guy and Religious Guru both of them would admit that
they just don’t know Who or What creates existence.
As an ultimate question the problem about start of existence
cannot be resolved. It is sad by itself but in the same time
legitimates almost the same but much more specific question Who
or What creates our Universe. Discussed above religious and scientific
ideas are both equally supported one by science and other by
faith. Interesting that both could be formally right. God could
create the Big Bang with properties these later lead to Universe
we have luck to live.
This both side of mouth answer can satisfy scientists much more
than adepts of any given religion. Really, science gives up nothing.
Existence of God who had only made an Universe and then did not
interfere in its self organization demands no additional efforts.
Just be ready to say Hello God and continue examination of everything
that moves or lies within reach.
Adepts of religious vintage point would very soon discover that
pittance like acceptance by science of possibility that God organizes
Big Bang gives them less than nothing. Religious have any kind
of usefulness for any church clergy only by interpreting words
of God to congregation. Specifically it is about asking to sacrifice
for them in the Name Of God. But if God only kick start existence
and then doing no fine tuning only observing or even neglecting
His creation in this case religion cannot ask for anything.
There is one variant when clerics and scientists would unite
in quest for the existence Origin. It is if we accept as possibility
that our reality is the playground for virtual reality software
game. This will not answer the ultimate question about how the
world of developers and players in our game appears. We already
show that the answer to the ultimate question is unreachable
as the end of number series. What we could try with or without
hope to succeed is to expand a horizon of comprehension as if
to light up the tunnel of time slightly brighter in the moment
of our presence understanding futility see its exit and enter ever.
Virtual reality is postulated here as analog of the role computer
game. The word “analog” here is excessive protection against
challenge like how do you know? I don’t know of course. How can
I know? Nobody can. Even if anybody will see burning bush that
at perfect, much better than mine, English explains Origin of
the world and what is the purpose of life how can we be sure
that it is not delusion? There is no way to distinct between
delusion and reality in most cases without fatal incidents.
So the hypothesis that our reality is the game field cannot be
proven or disproven. But it can be valuable instrument for resolving
conflict between science and religion. How this unification of
science and religions can work?
The premise is like this. In upper to our existence there are
numerous intelligence beings exist in society where the only
problem is to waste time in being entertained. They play games.
One type of games is role playing in civilization. Creator of
our game field reality used one of many templates developed for
this purpose. The one starts with Big Bang. The billions years
before first human being birth, Adams, were run out in simulation
with in fast speed. Than the story you read in Bible starts.
The important to say that this synopsis does not contradict to
any physical law or even to principle of natural selection. The
virtual reality is constructed exact in the manner to obey to
all physical laws. Laws must be obeyed always, all the time except
moments when administrators of the game with highest level of
mainframe access would be forced to make corrections to protect
game from self-destruction. Religion calls such interference
miracle; science calls them coincident or unproven myth or conspiracy theory.
What here for science? The new paradigm that every physical effect
has exact implementation in software algorithm that needs to
be replicated. What here for religion? The new story that is
in lock steps with modern habits of new generations who plays computer games.
What here for me? Really only one thing – the philological protection
against mortal feart of death as for all of us. Traditional religion
is too obsolete, science is cruel and immoral. It is nice to
invent some noble vision of reality with moral and other helpful
perks and without conflict with science. Why not. really?
