god for a day
    #533262 - 01/27/02 08:44 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

I was again thinking about the 13th floor thing. If we created people that were so 'real' they lived. They were a computer program, but to them they were living. They would be just as real as us, just on a diffrent level. We could be gods.

Anyways. If you were to create them, and thier souls, and what not...If you were going to create a reason for thier life, what would it be? Would you create a heave/hell?

Wouldnt it be the same reason why you are living....To create, love, or be happy. To expand all positive energy into limitless forms of creation. To help spread the good word. To give your creations the blue prints for creation so they can CREATE CREATE CREATE. To be endless.

I don't think we will create exact replicas of ourselves. Maybe technology is going to get a life of it's own sometime (I am, or was, working towards a master in Artificial Intelligence, and I guess that's where it's headed

I'm guessing it would end up in the wrong hands and never be anything as wonderful as it could be.

Maybe at some point, technology will be smart, handsome, and witty- even emotional. But no matter what, you couldn't compare digital people to real people: we have souls. We love. We hurt. We desire happiness.

Thats a broad statement! living in a bubble, saying theres nothign on the outside is pretty good when you are in the bubble, but maybe its in a bigger bubble with people saying the exact same thing

The way I look at purgatory and paradise (And how all Muslims look at it), is that's it's a state of cleansing warped souls and a punishment for those who rejected the word of Allah from his prophets. If you were God (and certainly none of us should ever be compared to Him), what would you wan't for your creatures? Especially the only one's with self-awareness and the ability to do either good deeds, or bad deeds. You would probably send messengers while man was at a young stage. You would want all your creatures to love and commit good deeds. But then you have those who reject you and do bad deeds. They seem to get away with what they're doing in that life, so you decide to create a place where they will play it out why they were bad to others for the rest of their existance, forever. You would also want to create an ultimate reward for those who believed in you and followed your guidelines of living. So you create Heaven, where your creatures can indulge in all the earthly pleasures forever that they had to abstain from in the life- the life being a test. As much as it hurts to send someone into Hell, you know it must be done because they failed you as your creation. There are the hypocrites too, They say: "God is all Love, he will Love me for what I am." yet they reject what he wants us to do, in a life where you are lucky to live past 60 years.

This is how I see the logic of hell, and how it is needed- as with the logic of Heaven, a special reward for the righteous.

To sum it up: If you were God (The Muslim, Christian, and Jewish God are all the same God, known as Allah, the different religions are simply the teachings of different prophets and the messages that got mixed up- the reason Muhammad was the last and final prophet from Allah (Allah is Arabic for meaning the one and only God) would you want your creatures to be righteous, or to be evil, despite how much you love the evil ones as much as the righteous ones? This is is simply the logic I see behind organized religion, and once again it took a hefty dose of psychedelics for me to see that. Not a whacko would create Hell, but a loving God would, so each soul in purgatory can play it out forever why they got so attatched to the earthly life. And in Islam, many souls do get out of hell once they've been cleansed from corruption, unlike the Christianity concept.

I would create a universe the way this universe is, or the way I would like it is.

I would create some sort of karma: the way the creatures handle their life is how their reality looks. I would create infinite possibilitie and stuff to discover. Multiple dimensions, multi universes, multiple realities. Emotions, all senses and more, awarness, counsiousness, possibities to expand consiousness, spirtual worlds etc.
Id create a will to experience in each creature.
I would make more than earts creatures. All sorts of creatures would be created. Also beautiful worlds and planets
I would create doors in consiousness of the creatures to get into other worlds and realities, which would only be discoverd if theyd search for it and could handle it.
I would make loving angels, that would help those that got stuck.
And most important of all, I would give them the wisdom, deep inside, that they know their world is created by a higher being, and give m views of this reality. Also, I would indeed send profets and stuff, beings of love in their matter.
The reason for their life would be to excist, and experience the endless possibities. The possibilty to create their own realty would be given to each creature
