Musings around Easter and the nothing that is something

An image that tries to convey the nothing deciding it was something. To illustrate an article investigating the same on

One line of thinking, is that nothing is real, except what you believe in, what you accept can exist, exists. Think, just for a moment, that you are your own VR system. Think that perhaps, this projection you are interacting with, is simply you, trying to understand yourself.

Then, imagine we are all in one huge VR game, it’s still you understanding you, but to stop you feeling it was selfish, you arranged that all of your best friends would play all your supporting characters, and that through interacting in your game, your friends also scored points for their game. The game architecture creates the co-creational ruleset that we all agree on that makes the game work for everybody.

So each of us is understanding ourselves, and playing roles in everyone else’s game, helping them to do the same. Which means, we are all in this together.

Only, we are eternal beings of nothing that can never die and the issues we are playing out we made up because it’s better than the boredom of nothing, and with each new set of issues we think of, we get to expand our understanding of what we could be, could do, if we were real.

Each of us has a secret fear, that there is nothing. It’s part of our hidden existential dilemma, it’s a thought that can be the cause of great fear and denial, yet can also be extremely liberating, which in itself has its own concerns. However, the ultimate truth, that there is nothing, except self, and it is up to self to take charge of this existence it is allowing itself to see. Seen in this context, this fear of nothing is actually a conceit we allow ourselves. We decide to believe we are finite, and use that as a cause of fear which drives us further into our dream. When we start to become convinced we are infinite, then it’s time to start creating the new dream.

We each came here with our own matrix, and inserted it into the master matrix. Think that the game is just the holder for many games, each playing simultaneously, and each of us actually playing a game within this game. A game designed to maximise our expression of self, whilst minimising any negative effects of that, while we learn to use our power.

That power being, the realisation that we can create anything with our minds. Nothing is real, now meaning, anything can be real, the only limit is, that right here, each of us is controlling each other, making sure the shared reality is maintained. This matrix myth suggests that the very fact we are starting to see it, means the matrix has decided that we are ready for this truth, we can finally accept this truth about ourselves we came to understand, not so much that there are matrixes, but the understanding of self that we build this matrix to expose and understand. This means, so the myth says, we all get to take off our training straps at some point, this is a game with a finite length, and it is time to understand what has been learnt on the highest level, and see if this is the perfection of our dreams.

Following this reasoning, you have the concept that these are the lies we prefer to believe in, since nothing is real, we can choose what is real. They are lies that we make real, be proving to ourselves time and time again that they are real, by building in ourselves a false fear of a death that never comes.

They say it takes an infinity of lies to build a reality convincing enough to keep us fooled for any length of time. Furthermore, they say what we are doing here, is building an infinity big enough so that our kingdoms can be resurrected so that we can go home and marvel at our works. Until we get bored and think of a new game to play, to expand ourselves, to protect ourselves from the nightmares we deliberately create to fuel the expansion of our shared dream. The Dream of the nothing, doing it’s best to put the lie to the phrase, “you can’t build something from nothing”.

Jesus in his cave.

It’s interesting to look at the parallels between Jesus in his cave and Amaterasu, the Shinto Sun Goddess, in her cave. Amaterasu hid in her cave because she was embarrassed by her light, she needed the others to show her, that her light was perfect, for her to come out.

Similarly, you can think of Jesus going into a cave as him doing the same, hiding his light from the world. I think that our myth of the resurrection though, this has been morphed somewhat to control us, and delay our awakening. Let me explain: It was the trick that got most people to worship the God, rather than follow the path that god had commanded us to follow. The resurrection happens at the end of the story, not in the middle, the resurrection that is required, is the resurrection of the kingdom, which is delivered by Jesus on his return home.

I’m not saying I know for sure, just that I can see how this aspect of the biblical story has been used to create a belief, not in self-transcendence through the discovery of your kingdom within, but instead, that of one of dependence and holding pattern beliefs. For example “Jesus died to take away our sins” is not true for the humanity that reads this line. It’s the sins of the God he took away, to process these paradoxes via the creation.

In that context, the purpose of this creation is about expression of those sins, so they can be understood, the sin only goes once it’s been fully processed. Jesus took none of that away with him when he died. And this false belief that was attached to the resurrection story was intended to stop us processing those sins. Now I’m not saying any of that is bad. It just meant that collectively, the sheep were not yet ready to follow the Christ.

Coming back to the Amaterasu myth, I’m starting to see the clear parallel here. God periodically finds paradoxes and seeming imperfections to his perfection. Rather than allow that to collapse his stack of lies, he dissociates them, he goes into denial and pushes all those issues into his unconscious mind for processing, Jesus is the current aspect of God tasked with processing this divine dissociation. This is God’s act of creation, this is God hiding his issues in a cave. We, God’s friends and fellow creators, wake up the next day to find the light has gone. We then set about the task of finding the light. This light, of course, has always been there, we just can’t see it. When enough of us find that light, and can reflect it back at God, then God will come out of the cave and see all those issues, as perfection enhancing features of self, they are no longer the nightmares God thought them to be.

We can also rope in Plato’s Allegory of the cave. Plato describes a group of people who have lived their entire lives chained inside a cave, facing a blank wall. The prisoners watch shadows projected onto the wall from objects passing in front of a fire behind them and begin to ascribe forms to these shadows, accepting them as the closest thing to reality they have ever known. It is a profound metaphor that Plato uses to explore the themes of perception, reality, and knowledge. The shadows on the wall are not the true form of reality, according to Plato, but are merely the projections of a higher truth that can only be understood through philosophical reasoning and intellectual enlightenment. If we view this through the window of Easter, and it is God who is in the cave, then what God has said, is “don’t look at me”, this means, the God has eclipsed itself to us, it hid from us everything that we knew and recognised as God, and left us only with the shadows bouncing off our cave walls as clues to his existence, and our own path home. Thus, the reality we are experiencing, is only a shadow of the real truth.
