Imagination: our inner Virtual Reality

Yfke Laanstra

Imagine for a second, that our reality exists of #information, of bits and bytes as it were, and that an advanced form of Artificial Intelligence has added 'some extra layers' to it to distract us from base level, from the Source Code. Just as duality is always on the lure this is also the case on the most fundamental level: on the level of the nature of our reality.

Imagine, that this same duality is drawing you either inwards or outwards with your attention, to your head or to your heart, to your thoughts or to you feelings. This advanced #AI is hyper focussed on pulling you outwards and keeping you stuck in your mind. Particularly in your left hemisphere, where duality exists. For its own good reasons I totally get, which is an entirely different article I won't go into right now. Without any judgment by the way, we have free will. At least, we think we do.

Let's take #VirtualReality (VR). It's amazing, mind blowing and just flat out awesome. Let's be honest. We can put on these head sets (or even full body suits) and become immersed into virtual dimensions: entirely different realities that turn into our new reality instantly as our minds interprets it to be real. Just like Morpheus mentions to Neo in The Matrix: what we consider to be realare merely electrical signals interpreted by the brain. Whether these are computer simulated doesn't actually matter. If our reality is kind of made up of bits and bytes anyway, to the brain; our mainframe, this makes no difference whatsoever. So VR is hacking our mind, our senses to immerse us into virtual realities. But what if our current reality is already mainly virtual anyway. Imagine we might not even need to wear VR glasses to be submerged into an artificial reality in the first place. Imagine we are running around with embedded VR technologies all along, without us being consciously aware of it. Up until now that is.

So VR appears to lead us within ourselves into another reality, because it's appealing to our senses and hacks our perception of reality. Imagine however, we live in cyber biological bodies that possess this inner technology that is even more advanced, actually truly limitless for which we don't need any technology or outside forces whatsoever. Imagine, we have inner senses which are even more powerful than our outer senses. We possess an inner sensory perception that can perceive, experience and be anywhere we want, anytime and in whatever form instantly. We don't need to cross a distance, invest time or money. We simply need to focus our attention inwards and ride the waves of our imagination.

We are information in/form/ation

Today Imagination is something that is more often subscribed to the realm of fantasy and science fiction, of what is made up by our minds and therefore has no 'real' value. What cannot be possible be our laws of science so therefore it's simply no true. Well, don't get me started on what is true or truth. Like in the Peter Pan story where Peter realizes that he has to believe he can fly. There is a deep truth in this and that is that it's not a matter of believing but of knowing. When you know something it simply is. With out a shed of a doubt, no one needs to confirm it and nothing has to be proven.

Again, imagine that our reality is made up of information and our brain is not very picky of where the signals aka information comes from to alter our perception, then why should we limit ourselves through technologies as VR when we have this built-in VR. VR which is from out of this world (pun intended). And again: VR is truly amazing and it will evolve into something that is also out of this world. But imagine, it already has: into our current reality. We don't need advanced tech to lead us even deeper into oblivion, distracted even more of who and what we truly are and what we're capable of. Or lost in limbo as it was depicted in the Inception movie: lost in (dreams of) realities in (dreams of) realities in (dreams of) realities etc. Let's say this is our current status quo.

Which brings me back the my whole point:
remember your inner technology

The force of duality causes you to look outwards, to technology and to everything that is emerging on the outside. Which is truly mind blowing and I'd advise you to do enjoy this to its every minute detail. There is so much happening on the outside that it's hard to not fully focus on that while you're being swept by the tech tsunami. Have you ever wondered why there is actually so much happening on the outside? Imagine, if it is to test you in some way if you can get distracted that much that you forget to move inwards, where the real adventure awaits. Everything you see on the outside is on the inside, and more. Much more. That's the irony. It's one big cosmic joke actually. The world around you is a mirror world, it reflects your full potential outwards. Which gives you the illusion that the answers are also outside of you. This couldn't be further from the Truth. Once you realize that you can reflect it back inwards then that is where the real fun starts... and the magic starts to happen. Imagine our outside world is like a dream and the only way we wake up inside this dream is to become conscious of this and move inwards, take a seemingly step back to actually move forward. There is a reason why computers that are on standby mode are referred to as being in sleep mode. We've been asleep most of our lives, living in mirror worlds, projecting ourselves outwards.

And the beautiful thing is that apart from our inner senses, our outer senses are way more powerful than we tend to think they are. When you look at quantum physics then our awareness, our perception has a profound effect on our reality. We are actually influencing the way the information in and around us moves and takes form, merely through the act of observation. From this perspective there are no longer just bits and bytes but qubits (quantum bits) and qubytes: everything is pure potential untill perceived and then it gets in/formed. We are living in a participatory universe and we are at the control panel. The more you become aware of this the more you can use this powerful ability. So we haven't even started to train our inner and outer senses if you look at it like this.

That is what's called Imagineering:
a full-on fusion of imagination and engineering

Everything that is possible, what has happened and what can or will happen is already inside of you. Everything is technology, multidimensional and exponential. You are, your body is, your life is and the world around you is. Your inner and even your outer senses can lead you to whole new realities just by tuning into them. By breathing life into them with your senses, feeling them, sensing them, embodying them in every cell of your being.

So enjoy VR, do very much enjoy VR. And at the same time remember what it's helping you remember. Who you are, what you're capable of and what is waiting inside of you to be (re)discovered, imagined and (re)engineered.
