Is it possible that life is an illusion?
Imagine waking up to a different reality based upon an entirely different set of rules. Where this reality was more like a dream that was only a small view of limitation in comparison to what life has to offer.

What if you were to wake up one day and know this reality was a dream based upon the same laws of consciousness that allow one to dream here?

What if it was clever like that, that the death of the body here meant the consciousness would now have access to the original view, outside of this "dream"?

Would you enjoy life more?

If life is an illusion, why can't I fly? Or move through walls? Or teleport to any location that I desire? Or summon characters or things?

If life is an illusion, it is very limited. So maybe life isn't an illusion afterall.

You know the irony of it?

You can do these things...
Moving forward.
Memories left behind. A new life, a new journey. I've built anew.
For mankind... for my kind.
The vessel stares back at me. From every angle, the menacing smile latches on.
Talking walls speak and spell my life story.
My past life.
The vessel sleeps beside me... the comfort breath.
Morning skin of machines, of humanity's beginnings.
Am I God? I've been called worse... drift in and out.
This vessel brings me sleep.

I considered that before until getting falsely arrested and spending a long time in jail. Nope. Its VERY VERY real unfortunately.
Im just a latrine in a judaic controlled society. As a result, the MSM can get away with taking a leak on me.

Re: Is it possible that life is an illusion?
You wake up by paying more attention to the real reality, rather than the illusion. But that happens in time...at everyone's own pace, and in different ways.

All of the things that were mentioned still occur within a dream and are possible in various ways.

Sorry I'm not following you. As far as I know, no body can fly and nobody can walk through walls etc even if a person agrees or believes that he/she can. Otherwise we'd see numerous people doing crazy things all over the place.

Re: Is it possible that life is an illusion?
From a similar thread:

Anonymous: We are all dead. Were nothin but a collection of physical memories, stimuli. Our real selves are nowhere near us, who we think we are is not us, it's what we were made into because of our enviroments, parents, peers, the system, etc.

Nobody here has any idea who they were before coming here, what makes you think this is really you?

All you are in this 3d illusion is a thing, a mind and a body, only pertinent to this current life, how the fuck are you truly you?? Everything that's in your mind has been taught to you by external entities, how do you think you know the truth about anything??

The truth is we are all walking dead, we died as soon as we were born, and the only way to wake up is to die and let your essence escape from this horrible body and this horrible illusion, that's the only way. Any thoughts?
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 5254869



You almost have it.

You missed the point of how we may know what death is without life, however.

It's not an illusion.

We all have original thought, but you are correct; we are taught that our thought does not count when it comes to the status quo. You just make yourself an outsider, is all.

You soon forget that because the feeling of needing to belong makes normal logic a thing of the past...

At that point you distance yourself from your better self. The self that knows better. The better part that knows real truths.

You are taught to not only lie to others but to yourself as well...

*Oxy moron here--If you die when you are born how can you escape by dying??? do you then re-die?

Then I'd say Time is just an illusion, everything has already happened already. We are just experiencing in a "delayed" form, as if we're in a dream.


What if... you found out that this life is nothing more than a simulation.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1562292


Yes, this is similar. But a simulation for what? This is simulating ...life? What's the difference?

Therein lies the lessons. That we utilize our consciousness 100% of the time when experiencing and making decisions.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1357114


This is the truth, and in an illusion you would feel pain. And feel stimulation. Yet in an illusion, it would be fake.

IN a way.

The funny thing. That is exactly what it is.

When you find that the actual input of external stimulation has a delay in perception, during which the brain "mirrors" all the information. "We" perceive the mirror. Not the information.

Yes - compared to the immortal part of us.
 Quoting: litedreamer


So this is an illusion to the more serious parts of us.

But how does that add up? How do we become that part and how does our knowledge become one with that?
