The Gods of Egypt Movie – Aeon of Horus

Gods of Egypt Movie

Recently I viewed the movie Gods of Egypt. I assumed I was about to view an all-you-can-eat occult buffet. I was right. To no one’s surprise the Gods of Egypt movie has strong occult meaning. I am constantly writing about the Age of Aquarius / Aeon of Horus because it is so very relevant right now in the media. I write about this often because it is worth repeating. After December 21st 2012 (the end of the Mayan calendar if you recall) followers of the occult religion of the Thelema have been pushing hard to usher out the Aeon of Osiris and usher in the Aeon of Horus and I will explain that in detail below. This coincides with the ushering out the Age of Pisces and ushering in the Age of Aquarius (astrological ages). The Aeons are an important concept when viewing the Gods of Egypt. It is the purpose of making the movie. Let us dive in …

Near the beginning of the movie is the coronation of the crowning of Horus. It is a ceremony where hundreds of thousands of Egyptians gather to celebrate in an extravagant town square somewhere in Egypt. However there are more than mortals at the ritual. Many Egyptian Gods are present and accounted for. The Egyptian Gods are giants in comparison to the mortals (about 3x the size of normal humans). And they bleed like the mortals. But by contrast they bleed gold. In this way they are half god half mortals half gods. Isn’t that interesting for those of us whom have read Genesis 6 …

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,

That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. – Genesis 6:1-4 KJV Bible

You see the Egyptian Gods were not much different from those sons of God described in Genesis 6. And for this reason they have much in common with the Nephilim. The main Gods of Egypt are mortal. They also possess supernatural powers. As if they were breeded by a God and a mortal in fornication. Not so different from the fallen angels mating with human females producing the Nephilim in the Book of Genesis of the Torah. Not so different at all. And we know what the God of Noah thought of the Nephilim. He sent the flood to destroy their corrupt DNA. He has never been a fan of the Gods of Egypt. It is the thing he mentions immediately before delivering the Ten Commandments in Exodus 20 …

I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. – Exodus 20:2-3 KJV

Do you think it is coincidence that the God of Moses mentions Egypt immediately before delivering Commandment 1 Thou shalt have no other gods before me? I think there is very much purpose in calling out Egypt before Commandment 1. I have mentioned this before. It is a focal point for demonstrating why Christianity and the Thelema do not and will never mix.

Back to the movie. Hathor, Nephthys, and Thoth kneel before Horus at the ceremony ritual of Horus. Isis is there too but she is not introduced (I think that is important and we will talk about it later). Osiris now holds court. Osiris delivers a speech to the crowd. He says the following …

A token from someone with much and from someone with little. But when both die and stand at the final gate – what is their value then? I say they are equal. Symbols of lives well lived. All are welcomed to the afterlife. This is my legacy – Osiris

It seems to be the responsibility of the Egyptian God King to establish the laws of the afterlife. We will examine this shortly. Now Egyptian God Set (brother of King Osiris) arrives late to the coronation.

A short aside. In this serendipitous moment I realize the plot of the Gods of Egypt is nearly identical to the Disney film The Lion King of all things. If you have ever seen The Lion King then you know Simba is presented on Pride Rock by King Mufasa when he is born. Scar is envious of the ceremony so he does not attend. Set is envious of the Horus coronation so he disrupts the Horus coronation ceremony. Scar kills Mufasa. Set kills Osiris. Osiris teaches Horus and the crowd the law of the afterlife. Mufasa does the same when he teaches Simba about the Circle of Life. Set becomes King. Scar becomes king. Simba will have to fight his evil uncle. Horus will have to do the same. Set rips out the eyes of Horus. Scar has a scar over his left eye. I see striking similarities. Maybe I should analyze The Lion King some day!

Back to Set and the coronation of Horus. Set apologizes for his tardiness and presents Horus with a ceremonial gift. It is the horn from a dead ram. This is significant which I will explain. Set then disrupts the entire coronation. He stabs Osiris. He forces the Egyptian Gods to bow to him. He forces the mortals to bow to him. He then declares himself King and applies his rules of the afterlife as Osiris did before him …

From now on you have to buy your way in with riches earned – Set

Let us pause here and analyze all that is going on. I will make a case that all these events are related to the occult. The overarching esoteric theme from the Gods of Egypt movie is the progression of the Aeons (and astrological ages which are similar). This is the major occult meaning promoted in the movie. This has the Thelema religion written all over it of which I write about often. Here is the meaning of the movie …

In the Thelema religion there was once the Aeon of Isis. Isis isn’t a big deal in the Gods of Egypt movie. Her Aeon has essentially passed. The Aeon of Isis was an age to worship the mother goddess in ancient times. It would be defined roughly as civilization before 2000 BC. Therefore it included the astrological Age of Taurus (astrological bull). Following in progression is the Aeon of Osiris. The Aeon of Osiris ushers in the concept of the “Dying God” religions according to the Thelema. In the movie Osiris himself is killed by Set in grandiose fashion (dying god). Set also kills Mnevis whom is an Egyptian Bull God (Age of Taurus). Christianity is considered “dying god worship” by the Thelema religion. And so Christianity is assigned to the Aeon of Osiris by Aleister Crowley whom established the Thelema. Mind you Judaism does not worship a dying god. Also the God of Noah / Abraham / Moses never will die. But the Thelema religion does not care about this. They only care about any technique that can boost their magick power in rituals. Essentially by tapping into these broad concepts of the Aeons the Thelemites believe that their magick powers are boosted. That is the purpose of all of this Aeon belief structure. It is to conduct more potent magick. Now you know.

We continue. Remember when Set crashes the Horus coronation party in the movie? He presents Horus with a gift of a horn of a dead ram. This is a reference to the astrological age of the Age of Aries (astrological ram) which came after the Age of Taurus but before the Age of Pisces (astrological fish). The presentation of a dead ram horn symbolizes the Age of Aries is dead. It symbolizes the God of Moses is dead (but as Christians this is a ridiculous lie). You can see why the God of Moses doesn’t appreciate the Thelema religion or the Egyptian Gods. Not one bit.

Recall now Set kills Osiris and names himself King and defines laws of the afterlife. This represents the ushering in of the “unofficial” Aeon of Set (unofficial to Aleister Crowley). Notice there is never a ceremony for Set to be crowned King. Nor does he ever put on the crown. He is King but it is “unofficial”. I probably should have mentioned earlier that aeons can and do overlap. The rules of the Thelema aeons are not set in stone. They are vague concepts to unify and enhance magick.

An interesting thing about Set. In 1975 the Temple of Set was established throughout the United States as a darker version of the Church of Satan. To no one’s surprise a significant plot in the Gods of Egypt movie is the building of an enormous black obelisk which could easily be labeled the Temple of Set (not so different from the Washington Monument). Set claims he built the Tower for Ra but even Ra himself highly questions that motive in the movie. And so we have the concept of the Temple of Set presented in this movie. And it is not a stretch to say this represents the Aeon of Set which is an “unofficial” aeon jammed in between the Aeon of Osiris and the Aeon of Horus. There is a strange ritual in the Gods of Egypt movie that is worth discussing. Set’s followers worship him as he is presented with the wings of Nephthys, the heart of Osiris, and the Eye of Horus. Remember the purpose of the aeons to the Thelema religion is to boost magick powers. Well in this movie the relics of other Egyptian Gods are infused into Set to boost his magick powers in a very dark ritual. This is promoting black magick once again. Now where do you think Set places the Eye of Horus on himself to boost his black magick powers? Not over his own eye. That is not the place. Set places the Eye of Horus on his forehead where the classical ajna chakra is located (third eye). They even call it out loud the All Seeing Eye when they place it on Set’s forehead! See the glowing blue orb on the forehead of Set for proof …

Eye of Horus

Enough of Set though. Traditional Thelema treasures the Aeon of Horus over the Aeon of Set. And that is exactly what this movie does. Horus is the hero of the Liber Al Vel Legis which is the Book of the Law which is essentially the Thelema religion’s bible. Yet another Thelema parallel as Horus is the hero in the Gods of Egypt movie. Horus kills Set in the film. The “Temple of Set” explodes and is destroyed. This is one thing that surprises me about the Thelema religion. I am surprised Aleister Crowley wasn’t a bigger Aeon of Set fan which truly seems more evil than Horus. Maybe he knew Set would never gain the mass appeal that Horus would. Maybe he truly worships Set but you don’t find that out until you reach a certain degree in the mystery religions. There must be some reason. I am not sure why.

The final scene in the Gods of Egypt is the occult ceremony that was meant to be. The crowning ceremony of Horus is fulfilled. This comment by Horus before he is crowned reinforces my entire point that the Gods of Egypt movie is all about the Thelema aeons …

(Horus) Do you think I am ready?

(Thoth) Hmmm. True readiness is a notoriously difficult state to achieve. But – you are close enough.

Crowning of Horus

You see there is some debate as to when the Aeon of Horus actually “starts”. There is a faction who feel December 21st 2012 is a great day to start an aeon. Some say it should not start until 2600 AD. I believe this is why Thoth says “close enough”. The point is Horus is crowned. The Aeon of Horus is here. The end of the Mayan calendar is “close enough” to celebrate it. This is the Gods of Egypt occult meaning and purpose. And now Horus delivers his rules of the afterlife speech …

From this moment on the afterlife must be earned not with gold but by good deeds, compassion, and generosity. What we do and how we act in this life matters! – Horus

Of which the Horus afterlife speech sounds pretty appealing. Which I believe is the end game. The end game is to sell Horus as a hero and a reasonable god to normal movie goers. In turn it promotes the Thelema religion to the masses.

The truth is the path to salvation defined by Horus is not the same as the path to salvation put forth by Christ. The path to salvation put forth by Christ requires believing in him as the Messiah whom died on the cross as an offering up to Abba the Father for our sins. Horus doesn’t die for our sins. Horus worship is a sin! Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Let me show you in text how Christianity is attacked by Horus in the Thelema bible which is The Book of the Law …

III,51: With my Hawk’s head I peck at the eyes of Jesus as he hangs upon the cross.
III,52: I flap my wings in the face of Mohammed & blind him.
III,53: With my claws I tear out the flesh of the Indian and the Buddhist, Mongol and Din.

Liber Al Vel Legis – The Book of the Law – Chapter III

In closing I would just like to say the following. The Egyptian Gods directly oppose Christ and the God of Noah / Abraham / Moses and the King James Bible. The aeons are for boosting magick (forbidden in the Bible). The Thelema religion is about worshiping Egyptian Gods. Know these things.

Kanye West – Devil Worship – Part 2

Kanye West - Devil Worship - Par

I wrote Kanye West Devil Worship Part 1 about a year ago. By the Grace of God I waited until I wrote Part 2 (even though I really wanted to write it much faster). I am glad I waited. I will be much more intriguing because of the delay. First and foremost I want people to pray for this man. Send forth your prayers to save this poor soul Kanye West from himself. As far as I know Kanye West is still human with a soul in there somewhere. Now he could be possessed by a fallen angel or a demon or reptilian or something like this. You and I must come to the aide of our fellow man. I have done many dumb things in my life. I have thought I was in the right when clearly deceived. The Most High will judge. Until then we can help our fellow man with sincere prayers. Until then we can know them by their fruits (Matthew 7:16-20 KJV). And now I will analyze further some of the fruits of Kanye West.

One of the most influential music videos I have ever seen in my life is Kanye West’s short film Runaway which is produced by none other than Roc-A-Fella Records LLC which is owned by Sean Carter (Jay-Z) whom quite obviously idolizes the Rockefeller family by his company’s name. Runaway is a half hour of intense religious and occult imagery which takes multiple sitting to catch all references. I will try to point out significant references to you. Surely I still miss some references to this day – but I have plenty to share right now.

The first meaning I want to point out is the title of the film. I only came to know its meaning recently because I have just read the Book of Enoch within the last year. Have you ever read the Book of Enoch? There are vehement defenders of the Book of Enoch to the point that some think it is a conspiracy that it was excluded from the Bible itself. There are those on the total opposite end of the spectrum who think it is a forgery and a demon doctrine. For our purposes it doesn’t much matter the validity of Enoch. What does matter is the story itself. There are heroes and villians in the Book of Enoch. The heroes are the Lord of the Spirits and the Son of Man. The villains are the fallen angels whom have conspired to descend to earth and mate with women. This opposes the will of the Lord of Spirits and they are eternally cast out of Heaven. And do you know the name given to those fallen angels whom made a pact to descend upon the earth and intimately know the women of earth in Enoch? They are called the Runaways. And so the most significant artistic work of Kanye West’s life and times is a tribute to the Runaways whom are fallen angels that corrupted the bloodlines. An intriguing thing to mention. In the Runaway short film the role is reversed. The woman angel descends to earth to mate with Kanye the man. Simply watch to know …

And for a long time I did not understand the introduction. Until I understood Luciferian doctrine better. Understand this concept. The Luciferians believe that the Most High is the villain. To the Luciferians the Creator is a mean God. This is because the Creator declared the Tree of Knowledge forbidden in the Garden of Eden. Knowledge of good and evil was denied to the first man and the first woman. And it was benevolent Lucifer who educated Eve that the mean creator was unjustly denying the knowledge. It was virtuous Lucifer who offered godhood to woman and in turn she offered godhood to man (the origin of the god and goddess dichotomy). Ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil – Genesis 3:5. And this is the mindset and root and the origin of Luciferianism (and Wicca and Paganism and Satanism) all in one act. It all traces back to Eden and the forbidden fruit and Genesis 3. And now we understand the words of Nicki Minaj as the fallen angel descends from the sky in the opening scene of Runaway …

You might think you’ve peeped the scene/
You haven’t/
The real one’s far to mean/
The watered down one/
The one you know/
Was made up centuries ago/

And this is the meaning of the intro to Runaway. It sets the tone for the whole film. It is a tribute to the origin of Luciferianism which transpired in the Garden of Eden. The Creator (the real one) is mean. The watered down one is the Son of God whom is kind not mean. Christ is denied as even existing by their own words which are Christ was made up centuries ago. Kanye West says the right things in radio interviews about Jesus. But you will know him by his fruits. Be it music videos or lyrical verses or album art or concert performances or the like – these are his fruits. You must become skilled at identifying blasphemy if you are to understand him. I devoted Kanye West Devil Worship Part 1 to that very topic!

And so you have the freedom to believe whatever “good” and “evil” your false self god can talk yourself into thanks to Lucifer tempting Eve in the Garden of Eden. Do not underestimate a major selling point of Luciferianism is the self god concept. Unfortunately because of Lucifer we were cast out of Eden to a prison of mortal flesh and we shall surely die. Lucifer blatantly lied to Eve in Genesis 3:4 when he tells Eve ye shall not surely die. IT WAS A LIE. Luciferianism was built on a lie. The flesh now faces death because of it.

I’m not even 1 minute into the video and we have discovered much. There is plenty more to say about Runaway that is not common knowledge. I can now clearly see I will need a Kanye West Devil Worship Part 3 (and maybe a Part 4!). Part 2 will become too long if I cover all of Runaway now. Kanye creates too much devil worship material to be covered in 2 posts (sigh). For now we have analyzed the title and the introduction of the Runaway music video. The conclusion is inspiration was taken from the villains of the Book of Enoch (the fallen angels who mated with humans) and fundamental Luciferianism.

Let us examine some more Kanye West rotten fruit. I want to discuss the Kanye West – Power music video. I have never come across someone cracking the true meaning of the Kanye West – Power music video online. To understand it you must first recognize the Thelema religion. This is the religion of the self-proclaimed “666 Beast” Aleister Crowley invented in the early 1900s. The Thelema religion is experiencing a significant renaissance in our life and times. The reason is because we have now lived past 2012 which is a key date in the Thelema and in the occult in general. This is because December 21st 2012 marks the ushering in of the Age of Aquarius and the Aeon of Horus. The Age of Pisces (Christ) is to be ushered out. These are both central concepts to the Thelema religion. Now another key to the Thelema religion is the Thoth Tarot Card deck. The Thoth Tarot Cards are for divination (which is seeking knowledge of the future). They can also be used for magick. These things are forbidden in the Bible as abominations in many scripture verses.

The significance of the Thoth Tarot Cards to Aleister Crowley is not hard to trace. Aleister Crowley invented the Thelema religion of which the Egyptian diety Thoth is a big deal. He also helped design the Thoth Tarot Cards. He also authored the Book of Thoth which explains the Thoth Tarot Cards!

Now let me show you the Thoth Tarot Card for Power. The card is the Four of Disks – Power. So we have a music video named “Power” and a Thoth Tarot Card named “Power”. It looks like this …

Power - Four of Disks - Thoth Tarot Card

And now here we have the Kanye West – Power music video …

It is not hard to see that the Kanye West Power music video is filmed in a scene that looks like an artistic representation standing at the gates of the fortress displayed on the Four of Disks Thoth Tarot Card. And we are to know that this card displays a fortress because Aleister Crowley tells us this in the Book of Thoth (which describes the tarot cards). The color scheme is the same. Clearly the pillars in the music video have meaning. I would argue there is multiple meanings. Pillars can clearly be found on the Power Tarot Card. Also in Freemasonry pillars are built into every masonic temple. These are called Boaz and Jachin. When I Googled Boaz and Jachin I found the following image near the top of the results. Does this image not resemble the very fortress drawn on the Four of Disks Power card?

Boaz Jachin Pillars

Perhaps not. Perhaps the pillars and the color scheme are not enough coincidence to the Power Tarot Card. Then consider the following. Above Kanye’s head is a sword piercing a crown. A sword piercing a crown can also be found predominantly on a different Thoth Tarot Card.

Have a look at the Ace of Swords …

Ace of Swords - Thoth Tarot Card

And consider the following. I can draw imagery from not 1 not 2 but THREE Thoth Tarot Cards. Check out the Thoth Tarot Card known as The Moon …

Thoth Tarot Card - The Moon

For this reason the Power music video is heavy Thelema. There are other obvious Thelema references. Horus is the giant head on the Kanye necklace. The Thelema religion intertwines occult and Egyptian concepts heavily. Horus is a major Thelema diety (so is Thoth clearly). The Aeon of Horus is to usher out the Aeon of Pisces which is essentially the astrological Age of Christ. Christ is to be ushered out. Egyptian gods are to be ushered in. I write about this all the time. Notice the men dumping water on their heads upside down in the Power music video. Ever examined the Aquarius zodiac sign? It is commonly represented like this …

Aquarius Zodiac

In conclusion to this post I will summarize. Kanye West has combined Book of Enoch fallen angel concepts with Luciferian concepts in the Runaway short film – and I’m not even 1 minute into the analysis of his 30 minute Runaway short film (spoiler alert I have watched the whole thing and there are incredible dark concepts ahead in a future post). Kanye promotes heavy Thelema and Freemasonry symbolism in the Power music video which people have been trying to crack for years. I have identified at least three strong Thoth Tarot Card references. I will need to compose a Kanye West Devil Worship Part 3 and probably a Part 4. These are the fruits of Kanye West. May he change his ways. May you pray for him to change his ways.

Light Worship – The Emerald Tablets of Thoth

Thoth the Atlantean

Recently when searching for references to the “Age of Aquarius” I accidentally stumbled across a fascinating ancient text called “The Emerald Tablets of Thoth The Atlantean”. I read the text in its entirety. I knew almost immediately that these Emerald Tablets answered a lot of questions I had about the origin of many occult beliefs (and conspiracies in general). After reading the Emerald Tablets one thing became blatantly clear. Thoth endorses light worship.

If you browse the Emerald Tablets you will quickly determine that the central theme of the Emerald Tablets is light worship. The pdf version I read was only 48 pages long. You will find the word “light” an astounding 353 times! Self admittedly I have read a lot of occult texts in my life and times. I do this not because I want to enroll in the occult. I do this to learn what people of power believe in this world. Learn from opposites is an effective tool.

I have reason to believe that the Emerald Tablets are authoritative texts to the occult. Actually it could be the authoritative text. The themes people associate with Freemasonry and “The Illuminati” are all here in this book. Egyptian gods and symbols are here. The great pyramids and the sphinx are here. So is magick and astral projection. So is the underworld, reptilians, spaceships and the dark side (although you will be shocked what Thoth thinks about the dark side). I am very much reminded of Star Wars when I read the Emerald Tablets. I think I should do a separate post on lessons learned from reading the Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean. Until then let us discuss the theme of the text. Let us discuss light worship.

To study light worship I want to propose a simple question to the reader. Is light always “good”? That is what I want to examine in this post. I have proposed a few allegories for the reader to to consider when judging if light is always good. The allegories are as follows …

1) Have you ever seen a movie on your television that you feel was “evil”? If you have then this is fascinating. Here is the technology behind cable television …

Cable television is a system of delivering television programming to paying subscribers via radio frequency (RF) signals transmitted through coaxial cables or light pulses through fiber-optic cables. This contrasts with broadcast television, in which the television signal is transmitted over the air by radio waves and received by a television antenna attached to the television. – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cable_television

Did you see the keyword light pulses in the definition of the technology involved in cable television? It is worth repeating this point. In your life you may have seen a movie that you consider “evil”. Movies on cable tv are composed of light pulses. Fascinating.

2) Have you ever seen a music video that you might consider “evil”? Music videos are light pulses at the coaxial cable level which deliver the video file to your internet browsing device. See example 1.

3) Have you ever read a sentence on a web page that you might consider “evil”? Text files and web pages are light pulses at the coaxial cable level which deliver the text to your internet browsing device. See example 1 and example 2.

4) Have you ever been driving down the road and the sun is in your eyes? Have you ever been “high beamed” by another car on the road? Are these things ideal for getting you safely from point A to point B in your motor vehicle of choice? Or are there some negative consequences when a car is driving towards you with the high beams on?

5) How do you feel about inviting the light of a powerful lightning bolt striking you during a bad thunderstorm when you are outside holding a golf club or a steel baseball bat?

6) Have you ever stood in front of the Japanese LFEX laser when it is turned on shooting a 2 petawatt laser beam? A friendly suggestion. Don’t stand in front of the LFEX. Because it would melt a giant hole through your chest.

7) How do you feel about a ghost haunting in your house? Ghosts sure do look like light beings. Does a ghost haunting sound A) disturbing / threatening / terrifying or B) it sounds like a wonderful experience?

8) It is not uncommon for alien abduction victims to report an alien abduction light beam. Is this something you would want happening to you?

Here is the main point I am trying to make. In this world you will find light that surely can be good. You may also very well find light that can promote evil things. Light can also terrify you, blind you, burn you, or just straight up kill you. I simply wanted to point that out.

I leave you with one final allegory to make my case …

9) What if there existed a legion of fallen angels in this world. Is it such a crazy stretch of imagination that perhaps fallen angels could be composed of light? Is it so ridiculous to consider fallen angel light beings may endorse light worship as “the way”? Is it beyond the rational to contemplate light is not always inherently “good”? With these thoughts in mind go forth and read The Emerald Tablets of Thoth the Atlantean. Consider the true nature of Thoth.

Elon Musk – We Live In A Computer Simulation

Elon Musk

Elon Musk is considered by many to be one of the smartest humans walking around on the planet. He has a very impressive resume. He is one of the founders of PayPal which is the super successful online platform for sending money to other people by email address. He is also CEO of SpaceX where the mission is to reinvent space travel by lowering the costs and commercializing the process (including colonizing Mars). Finally he is the CEO of Tesla Motors which is in business to advance the electric car (and has done so quite successfully). Elon Musk is an intelligent man.

Which is why I was so intrigued by his recent answer to a philosophical question proposed at a conference questioning whether our existence is essentially “The Matrix”. Also I am very intrigued by his shocking answer that indeed we are living in a Matrix and the odds that we are not living in a Matrix is so concrete that it is “1 in billions” that we are not in a video game.

First and foremost I actually appreciate the fact that Elon Musk thinks about philosophy and metaphysics (where metaphysics is the the branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of things, including abstract concepts such as being, knowing, substance, cause, identity, time, and space). I am not too impressed with his “1 in billions” conclusion though.

Here is the interview …


Here is the transcript from the interview …

“The strongest argument for us being in a simulation – probably, being in a simulation, is the following. Forty years ago we had pong. Two rectangles and a dot. That was what games were. Now forty years later we have photo realistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and its getting better every year. Soon we will have virtual reality, augmented reality, etc. If you assume any rate of improvement at all then the games will become indistinguishable from reality. Just instinctual. Even if that rate of advancement drops by 1000 from what it is right now. Then you just say ok lets imagine what it is 10000 years into the future – which is nothing on the evolutionary scale. So clearly we are on a trajectory to have games that are indistinguishable from reality and those games could be played on any set top box or a PC or whatever and they would probably be billions of such computers or set top boxes it would seem to follow that the odds that we are in base reality is 1 in billions”. – Elon Musk

He then asks “tell me what is wrong with that argument”. I respect Elon for asking what is wrong with his argument. I will now attempt to answer in better fashion than the man put on the spot at the conference who was clearly in over his head.

The first problem with the computer simulation argument is just assuming evolution is unequivocally factual. The media would have us believe you are amongst the craziest of the crazy if you believe the universe is not billions and billions of years old. I am reminded of Stephen Hawking’s goldfish bowl allegory. Stephen Hawking argues that a genius goldfish could tell us some things about the world outside the fish bowl – even though it lives in the fish bowl. Wishful thinking. Even a goldfish in a bowl on the summit of a grandiose mountain could only deduce the physical world for a few visible miles on the horizon and a few visible miles into the sky. A speck of the earth and a speck of the sky would be the observable world of the most privileged goldfish.

So how did the brilliant humans deduce that the universe is billions of years old? Mostly reliance on carbon dating. Let us examine carbon dating briefly just to hammer home a point. Did you know carbon dating relies on an assumption?

A critical assumption used in carbon-14 dating has to do with this ratio. It is assumed that the ratio of 14C to 12C in the atmosphere has always been the same as it is today (1 to 1 trillion). If this assumption is true, then the AMS 14C dating method is valid up to about 80,000 years. Beyond this number, the instruments scientists use would not be able to detect enough remaining 14C to be useful in age estimates. This is a critical assumption in the dating process. If this assumption is not true, then the method will give incorrect dates. – Mike Riddle – https://answersingenesis.org/geology/carbon-14/doesnt-carbon-14-dating-disprove-the-bible/

Scientifically we are no better at understanding our entire universe than the most genius goldfish understanding the entire earth. Would you entertain a brilliant goldfish whom has never left its bowl to tell you about the jungles of Brazil? Would you entertain the wise goldfish on escaping natural predators in the saltwater Pacific Ocean if he has never left its humble 1 gallon of fresh water? Of course not. In another galaxy beyond the Milky Way carbon may decay in 2 minutes compared to 80000 years. Who knows? The Creator knows. We do not. And so this is my first point in weakening the case that there are 1 in billion odds we are not living in a computer simulation. Our understanding of evolution itself relies on assumption.

My second rebuttal is essentially the existence of errors in our world. As one of the original Founders of PayPal Mr. Musk knows a thing or two about artificial intelligence and coding itself. He knows the preciseness of executed code. There are no “errors” in a computer’s decision making. There are errors introduced by humans into code. It is not rare for a human programmer to get an error message when executing code. But it is not the code’s fault. Humans introduce errors into the code. How could that be if we are nothing but code on our own?

Here are some common coding errors a human programmer might run into …

1) Divide by 0 error
2) Array index out of bounds error
3) Variable not defined error
4) Missing an opening / closing bracket
5) Missing a semicolon closing statement

So very simply I ask why are any of us making any errors if our reality is a computer simulation? How do any humans around us make any “mistakes” or “regret” anything in their life? The human condition is full of experiences like “mistakes”, “forgetting”, “regret”, “misinterpretations”, “misunderstandings”, “miscommunications”, “miseducation”, “confusion”, etc. This is a tremendous thing for our computer simulation to be so full of error.

I have one final question. Is the “I” and the “we” and the “you” and the “us” computer simulations as well? Am I to understand that humans are nothing more than soulless lines of the code? Or are we “plugged in” more like the traditional Matrix indicates? Elon did not make that clear to me as a viewer. I would like to hear more about that before I comment further. I just wanted to explain indeed there are a few things that drastically reduce odds from 1 to a billion that we are not living in a video game.

I wrote this post because it is diametrically opposed to my God Math post. And I feel the God Math post has more substance for odds of God existing than a computer simulated video game reality. But I will let the reader decide.
