We are in a soul dilemma. Two possibilities are before us. All must choose one or be chosen.
Big Tech Swingers (who think they rule the world), like Elon Musk and Ray Kurzweil, and enablers, like Oxford professor, Dr. Nick Bostrom, believe we are virtual beings who live in a ‘fallen’ AI-driven simulated reality created by a super advanced alien civilization or by our future selves who seek to take a peek at what life was like for their ‘primitive’ ancestors. We are this close to creating such simulations ourselves. Bostrom thinks this will be the end of history. The fusion of quantum computers, those mysterious black boxes millions of times more powerful than our most powerful computers today, and AI, are the engine of this new reality. Called ‘Fallen Babylon’, this new digital realm of existence, will be inhabited by synthetic or artificial “new humans” called “meta humans” or computationally created virtual beings called Neon’s (by developer, Samsung). Some will even be real humans who jump in the black box by uploading their memories (data ‘souls’ to Simulation Theorists) into these CGI or cartoon avatars that are ‘better than real’. Others are an entirely new species of human-aliens, a Super Artificially Intelligent (SAI) Jack and Jill, that will physically step out of the black boxes into the material world. There’s no going back now from our ascent/descent into this new matrix and our meeting with the SAI Jack and Jill in the Box.
Running parallel, and in contrast, Christians who follow the script in the Book of Revelation believe we will meet the resurrected Christ in his heavenly city, a New Jerusalem described as a perfect crystal cube, that will drift out of our dreams and descend in the End Times as the hub of a heavenly reality on earth. Instead of a synthetic or virtual new Jack and Jill stepping out of the black box and into a physical body, God will step down from the heavenly throne via the cube, and live among ‘super’ humans who will step up and take on new, radiant bodies that mirror the resurrection body of Christ. As Revelation 22:14 proclaims, “Blessed are those who wash their robes that they may have right to the tree of life and may enter by the gates into the New Jerusalem.” The citizens of this ascended place fight against “principalities, powers of the air, against the world rulers (archons) of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places” (Ephesians 4:1-22). If Elon Musk is correct, these beings are the demons who brought us A.I. and control the Fallen Babylon.
We are living the Book of Revelation’s prophecy of an end time battle between the Children of Light and the Children of Darkness.
When we wake up every morning we are confronted with a choice of which of these two sides, or tides, we are on and which of their beliefs is true.
The Dire Straits song Industrial Disease nailed our predicament; (if) “two men think they are Jesus, one of them must be wrong.”
Which world will we leave?
In which will we stay?
Are you stepping up your organic frequency light body to meet Christ in the Cube or jumping in to your digital soul to meet Jack and Jill in the black box?
Fallen black box AI Babylon or ascended New Jerusalem?
The choice is (y)ours.
A theory as to the origin of the jack-in-the-box is that it comes from the 14th-century English prelate Sir John Schorne, who is often pictured holding a boot with a devil in it. According to folklore, he once cast the devil into a boot to protect the village of North Marston in Buckinghamshire. In French, a jack-in-the-box is called a “diable en boîte” (literally “devil in a box”). The phrase jack-in-the-box was first seen used in literature by John Foxe, in his book Actes and Monuments., first published in 1563. There he used the term as an insult to describe a swindler who would cheat tradesmen by selling them empty boxes instead of what they actually purchased.
THE FALLEN : ON EARTH AS IT IS IN HEAVEN
The fact that I believe AI is an industrial disease does not diminish the possibility that we live in a simulated reality. This theory must be seriously questioned, confronted and rebutted by all on the illumined spiritual path.
The reason is, the proponents of simulation theory not only believe we are simply, and only, video game characters, but more poisonously, that we do not have souls or any kind of existence outside the simulation (or game).
For them, to suggest there is anything spiritual about humanity is nonsense. All we are, they say, is data in those black boxes. According to these big brain wonders, the data screams there is no fucking soul.
If you believe you don’t have a soul you will believe anything.
As I have previously discussed, simulation theorists are presently creating a new race of soulless replacement humans who live in a, new, nested version of the black box. Their reality within this simulated reality will be as real as our “true” reality in our black box. However, like us, they will not know that they live in a simulation. I know, it sounds difficult to comprehend. Why would a flesh and blood human choose to create a replacement of itself in order to fall into the black box? I don’t know. However, it is happening.
True to a life in the Christ Cube, in this article I will compare and contrast the prophesied descent of the biblical celestial city, the New Jerusalem, with the current ascent of the black box of a quantum AI-based simulated world.
Does the Book of Revelation describe the emergence of AI?
Is it the key to the code?
Follow me as we make more footprints following these questions.
OUT OF EDEN
Our journey begins with Adam and Eve’s eviction from the Garden of Eden, which some extraordinary Jewish traditions speak of as a holy place or a temple guarded by intermediaries (300 angels very bright) and gates (protected, like some kind of advanced A.I. or genetic engineering facility).
Ordinarily, people think of Eden as a ‘lost’ paradise on earth. This assumption is based on Genesis (2:10-14), where Eden is a terrestrial garden or paradise located at the source of four rivers, perhaps in Ethiopia or the land of Shinar (Sumer). The Genesis Eden story is an echo of the Sumerian myth of a king, a primordial man, who is placed in a divine garden by an otherworldly being to guard the Tree of Life (which is a conduit to the heavenly realms).
However, according to II Enoch 8-9:1, Eden is not on earth. Instead, this lost realm is in the third heaven (hence the purpose of the Tree of Life).
After the exile of Adam and Eve, Eden withdrew from the earth and ‘ascended’ to the extraterrestrial third heaven, what may be thought of as a higher celestial realm or even another dimension (a thought that just sent the blood of materialist scientists shooting through the top of their skull).
Simulation theorists would call this higher realm a “nested simulation”. In their view, places like heaven or other dimensions do not exist, except those that are programmed into the simulation. The universe, as we know it, is merely a continuously rendered ‘movie set’ that isn’t actually there. So, when Elon Musk proposes we migrate to Mars, he surely know there is no ‘real’ Mars, only the fake one, right? If he acknowledges this, the point of moving to Mars is?
In the nested world, each world contains the characteristics of the previous one, and simultaneously, the world to come. This iteration process is referred to in spiritual terms in Genesis when God creates Adam and Eve (from Adam’s crystalline bone) and then ‘projects’ or expels them from the spiritual state of the Garden of Eden into the ‘material’ world beyond its gates (the end of the program). Most of us are stuck in this solid world with very little awareness of the spiritual state that preceded our existence, or the next ‘world’ to come, but which is already present all around us.
HIGHER, FINER BODIES OF LIGHT
In Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the third heaven is our place of origin. It is a region of Heaven and is considered the home of God. It is a distinct spiritual realm inhabited and traversed by angels, just humans made perfect, and God.
According to esoteric Jewish tradition, when Adam and Eve lived in this higher, finer realm they did so in light bodies that also were of a higher ‘frequency’. After being driven from Eden they/we were given coats of skin. This is human skin. All of human history is a quest to free ourselves from the confines and impurities of our flesh and blood bodies and return to our original, pure, divine nature. The way back is built into or programmed our DNA. Simply, our flesh and blood bodies are built to phase into a new type of body.
According to Jewish End Time belief, the celestial Eden will appear gloriously at the end of time as the New Jerusalem. The righteous of this time will see the heavenly Merkaba Throne. These righteous ones are, once again, “clothed with garments of light and eternal life, and eat of the tree of life (Enoch 58,3).
When Paul was “snatched up” or raptured to the third heaven this was his ascension to the higher frequency place of our origin.
In 1 Corinthians 15:35-49, Paul explains the Resurrection Body and the necessity of converting the mass of our flesh into light in order to ascend. He doesn’t speak of uploading ourselves into a simulated reality, but the parallel can easily be made with an easy substitution of words as I will do here. We will read Paul’s words with geek speak added in parenthesis.
35 But someone will ask, “How are the dead (flesh and blood humans) raised (uploaded)? With what kind of body will they come (enter the next level of the simulation)?” 36 How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else. 38 But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body. 39
“When you so, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed.”
The seed is a perfect metaphor for the soul planted in this sacred earth and its ascension or return to Source. The seed or incarnating human soul emerges from the spiritual realm and plants itself in the earthly body of clay or DNA for the production of earthly fruit.
I love this bit of spiritual truth.
It perfectly expresses the idea that, while we appear to be one thing, another thing is hidden within. This is why seeds are the basis of knowledge and wisdom and why they symbolize our metamorphosis into a greater light body. As a seed is transformed into a body, so too our earthly bodies will be transformed into our heavenly light bodies.
The blueprint for this ‘glory body’ or ‘light body’ is within our DNA awaiting the moment when a mysterious force – the last trump — awakens it from its sleep and it begins reaching toward heaven.
Think of the acorn and how encoded within it is the plan for the mighty oak.
If we think of our DNA as a seed that manifested our physical body (the tree), then the light body is the fruit of the tree. It is by our fruits that we are known. The worry is that the soul / seed can be planted on earth, but be allowed to rot or wither.
Just as the body needs food, so too does the soul. It craves wisdom, especially about the meaning of its existence.
Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another (synthetic new humans have another). 40 There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies (and there are digital bodies); but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another (the splendor of synthetic/digital body is another) 41 The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.
42 So will it be with the resurrection (uploading) of the dead (flesh and blood bodies). The body that is sown is perishable (organic), it is raised imperishable (artificially intelligent); 43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; 44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body (or a digital body).
Finally, Paul says:
If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body (and now a digital body). 45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam (Neon), a life-giving spirit (a post-human Digital being). 46 The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.
47 The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven (of the black box). 48 As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven (and so are those of the black box). 49 And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man (synthetic/digital human).”
Just as we can grow our seed/soul into a spiritual body, simulation theorists propose we can grow out of a need for soul and into a digital body.
For simulation theorists, the “spiritual body” that lives in the next simulation will be digital. This digital body or virtual body, called an ‘avatar’, corresponds to and is continuous with our earthly body.
For now, these fake humans reside exclusively behind the glass walls of our computer screens.
As I have written, developers like Samsung, who are creating a new synthetic human called Neon, believe these beings will, one day, escape from the box and take on flesh and blood bodies. For these synthetic life forms ‘paradise’ will have been lost. In the black box they can become anything. In ‘real’ flesh and blood human bodies they will find ordinary human limitations enormously challenging.
Renault’s ‘Escape to Real’ commercial for its KADJAR vehicle expresses the belief that, one day, the synthetic or CGI virtual beings or meta humans may cross over the glass and become ‘real humans’, Have a look:
By 2030, most movies will not have human “stars” any longer. They will have been replaced by “perfect” beings created via super advanced digital graphics technologies. These creations will be indistinguishable from ‘real’ humans. As the Renault commercial says, they could even become self aware and seek to ‘escape to real’
Can you imagine an AI “new human” Jack and Jills stepping out of the black box and declaring themselves ‘Empress and Emperor of the Milky Way?’ I can.
What if you suddenly discovered that we live in a black box in a world devoid of light? What if you wanted to leave? Who would you call to take you home?
The Gnostic Christians who comprised the early Church did not believe the beings who designed our cube world or Net from on high could ever incarnate as humans. These big fish, simply, were too big and powerful to squeeze into our tiny aquarium.
However, Christ found a way to do so.
CHRIST, THE SUPER USER
In geek speak a super user is one who has the highest possible privileges in a computer or application. A super user is an adept who has a profound understanding of the inner workings of the game and privileges way beyond the average player. It knows everything, has administrative control, and can change the game.
If we view Christ as a superuser who hacked the simulation, and his Resurrection as an opening of the black box, we have a perfect match.
How do we get super user access to the universe? Follow Christ in his resurrection.
The evidence of his hack, and the way out of simulation, is through the Shroud of Turin. Studying it breaks the spell of the gam. Please see my online video course The Rising: Ascension and the New Humanity for more.
Watch Christ perform miracles in this video game, “I Am Jesus Christ”, that lets you “follow Jesus” and take his role in the game.
THE ANGELICAL OR AI CODE?
In 2 Corinthians Paul the Apostle writes, “I know a person in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows. And I know that such a person—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows—was caught up into Paradise and heard things that are not to be told, that no mortal is permitted to repeat.”
According to Islamic tradition, during Muhammad’s Mi’raj (ascension) the prophet was taken to the third heaven by the angel Gabriel. This celestial place is depicted as being constructed of pearl and/or other luminous metals. It is a real place.
While Paul was in the third heaven he claims to have “heard things”, “unsayable things”. He is in such an alien place that he can hardly describe what he experienced. He speaks of an otherworldly or angelic language in 1 Corinthians 13:1. If one could speak the language of Angels, it was believed one could directly interact with them.
Angelical was supposed to have been the language God used to create the world, and which was later used by Adam to speak with God and the angels, and to name all things in existence.
Simulation theorists would argue the third heaven is just another simulation or a rendered reality within our video game. The “tongue of angels” is the programmer’s code.
After his Fall from Paradise, Adam lost the language and constructed a form of proto-Hebrew based upon his vague memory of Angelical. This was the language until the Tower of Babel insurrection/uprising.
Computer systems today contain billions of lines of code and algorithms that are way beyond any single person’s capability to comprehend. Whether the average person is aware of it or not, algorithms that give instructions to computers are becoming an invisible, but ubiquitous, part of our lives. With AI learning to code itself, even developers need tools to help understand it. In short, just as we can see the “tongue of angels” is the code or creation, programming language is the code of creation of AI.
In the Book of Enoch he describes getting inside of a room filled with crystals that opened a portal to another crystalline room, the Throne of God. With its fiery walls covered with images of palm trees symbolizing Eden it is nearly identical to descriptions of the cube-shaped Holy of Holies of Solomon’s Temple, which is also an echo of the Garden. God spoke in both places.
The celestial cube-shaped and crystalline New Jerusalem is a mirror for what the Garden of Eden was like before it left the earth.
“This place,” says II Enoch 9:1, “is prepared for the righteous, who endure all manner of offense from those that exasperate their souls, who avert their eyes from iniquity, and make righteous judgment, and give bread to the hungering, and cover the naked with clothing, and raise up the fallen, and help injured orphans, and who walk without fault before the face of the LORD, and serve him alone, and for them is prepared this place for eternal inheritance.
Adam and Eve had a son named Cain, who killed his brother Abel, and was driven away from his family. Before his murderous action, Cain lived in one matrix in which he had a face to face relationship with God. After, he was a cursed fugitive and a wanderer (Genesis 4:12). He went away from the presence of God (4:16). He removed himself from a relationship with God that gave his life purpose and meaning to life in the land of Nod or “wandering”.
For simulation theorists the matrix is a computer program. God is a programmer who created the simulation and lives in a reality one level above us. Neons lives are are wholly dependent or centered upon this programmer the way Cain was to God.
If you replace the word “God” with “The Programmer” in the first chapter of the Gospel of John, here is what you get:
“In the beginning was the (Word) Code, and the Code was with (God) The Programmer, and the Code was The Programmer. He was with God, The Programmer, in the beginning (of the simulation). Through him all things (the entire simulation) were programmed; without him nothing was programmed that has been programmed. In him was life (the AI Code), and that life was the Upgrade of all mankind. The Avatar/Cartoon human shines in the darkness, and the darkness (flesh and blood human) has not Downloaded it…The true Avatar that gives light to everyone was coming into the Simulation. He was in the Simulation, and though the Simulation was made through him, the Simulation did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him….”
In a quest to give his life meaning in his new matrix Cain, whose name contains ‘ai’, did two things. He had a family and he built a city, which he named after his son Enoch.
Cain shares a similar quest with another city builder, Nimrod, who built the Tower of Babel as a ladder, tower or stairway, a hack, back to God (Genesis 11:1-9).
“Let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name fo our selves.”
The tower is the stairway. The ‘name’ is a vibration of holiness that enables one to scale it. New names indicate a change in a state of being, usually an elevation. Think of the pope’s for kings selecting a new name upon their accession.
The Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building,” says Genesis (11:5). God, however, wasn’t ready for a conduit to be built by human hands. The reason is, if successful, says Genesis, “nothing would be impossible for humans.” A decision is made, “let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel—because they’re the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.
This episode makes it clear that God’s matrix and the human matrix are separate places. Uniting or bridging the two has well, always, been the goal of humans.
As early as the third generation after the Flood, the abrupt climate change event that occurred at end of the Younger Dryas between 10,900 BC and 9,700 BC and wiped human civilization of the surface of the earth, humans had begun to remember technology for creating a Gate to God. After the cataclysm, we awakened from a dark and devastated world to discover remnants, temples, of a lost Golden Age that we no longer understood.
In traditional Judaism and Christianity, the Tower of Babel story is considered to be a rebellion against God. However, in esoteric tradition, it is a remembrance of humanity’s lost era and a rebuilding of its technology.
Originally, the word babel meant ladder, tower or stairway. After its destruction by God the meaning of the word was changed to confusion and nonsense. Scientists refer to talk about spiritual dimensions as “babbling”. The term is a reference to Babylon.
Likewise, the idea that humans can transform into our original light body form is considered heretical by Christians who compare Satan’s actions in Isaiah, “I will set my throne on high, I will ascend to heaven, I will make myself like the Most High” to the builder of the Babel Stargate, “Let us build ourselves a city. Let us build a Tower with a top in heaven. Let us make a name for ourselves.”
Is it rebellious for humans to seek the Gate to God?
Why wouldn’t God want to connect with humans?
The answer comes from writer of Hebrews who welcomes us to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the Living God.
This celestial city is built by God and the bodies in which we dwell in this city are not made by human hands.
This New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven to humanity in Revelation 21:2.
Babel, Fallen Babylon, on the other hand, is made by human hands (held by demons).
So is the simulated AI world of the black box. The parallels are obvious and compelling. This is why I am comparing/contrasting them.
In the Black Box humans ascend/descend into a new matrix made of 1s and 0s where synthetic humans without souls dwell.
The citizens of the heavenly Jerusalem have God’s name sealed on their foreheads. They worship the Image of God.
The citizens of the black box matrix have the Mark of the Beast on their forehead. This mark is thought of as something like a quantum tattoo or a QR code. It links to, and allow those with the Mark of the Beast to worship the Image of the Beast, which is the AI algorithm that brings them to life.
In Revelation 20-21, a Rainbow Angel of the Lord descends through a hole in heaven and has the seal of God with which to seal the righteous. This is the counter to the Mark of the Beast.
The seal of God is the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 1:22, Ephesians 1:13; 4:30), which is the divine presence / vibration of the risen Christ in the believers. The seal is to be placed upon the forehead fo the righteous. In Revelation 22:4 the righteous “shall see his face, and his name shall be on their foreheads.”
As previously stated, the Name is a vibration. The forehead means the third eye. This means one perceives the risen Christ in their inner vision or through mystical eyes. Simulation theorists think the ‘blind’ humans we will see the SAI savior via virtual reality goggles.
The question I shall address next is how to live in the heavenly Jerusalem while on earth.
