I Dreamt Last Night That I Killed Myself

Short dream.

I was standing before a wood wall with three levers sticking out of it.  I pulled down the right one and nothing happened.  I pulled down the left one and nothing happened.  A voice or a thought admonished me for avoiding the inevitable.  I pulled down the middle lever and everything went black.

"I pulled down the middle lever and everything went black".

That means you turned off your TV - and thus the Programming that goes along with it.


Get yourself some TV -B -Gone:

The TV-B-Gone® universal remote control allows you to turn virtually any TV On or OFF. We prefer OFF.

You control when you see TV, rather than what you see. The TV-B-Gone Keychain remote is so small that it easily fits in your pocket so that you have it handy whenever you need it, wherever you go: bars, restaurants, laundromats, ballparks, arenas, etc.

“You can use TV-B-Gone® to control access to television for philosophical or practical reasons, or simply to have fun!“
—Mitch Altman, Inventor of TV-B-Gone®

Riz Virk Explains Why Quantum Physics, AI, & Eastern Mystics All Agree We Are Living In A Video Game

An MIT trained computer scientist and Silicon Valley video game designer gives 10 reasons for the 'Simulation Hypothesis': that our reality is a simulated, pixelated 3d world where we all have individual xp, levels, and quests run by some giant Artificial Intelligence

Recently, the idea that we may be living in a giant video game, or as it’s sometimes called, the Simulation Hypothesis, has gotten a lot of attention because of prominent figures like Elon Musk who have openly discussed the idea. As Virtual Reality technology has gotten more sophisticated, we are starting to contemplate virtual worlds like that of the omni-present Oasis in Ready Player One, soon to be a blockbuster movie directed by Stephen Spielberg.

Some like sci fi writer Philip K. Dick, believed strongly that we were living in a kind of simulation. Others, like futurist Ray Kurzweil, have popularized the idea of downloading our consciousness into a silicon based device, which would mean we are just digital information after all. Some, like Oxford lecturer Nick Bostrom, goes further and thinks we may in fact be artificially simulated consciousness inside such a simulation already!
