What is this experiment? It’s an odyssey conducted within an isolated holographic universe. It would be best to learn the rules since you are already taking part in this experiment.
The Great Spiritual Experiment
It’s the ultimate virtual experience. It’s so real; some people can’t tell the difference between the experiment and normal reality. You are already a part of this experiment, and you might as well learn all the rules: It comprises Ten simple Articles:
This is a spiritual adventure. Some think the outcome is predetermined, but others believe it is just chance and chaos. The most popular opinion is that it is a bit of both. There are several variables, resources, and lessons in the experiment.
However, you will not (generally) remember this while conducting the experiment we call life. That’s what makes it fun. You “think” it’s unpredictable when you probably planned most of the really freaky stuff.
You receive a biodegradable container for the experiment’s duration, which houses your consciousness. You may like it or not, but you cannot exchange it (see Article One). Unfortunately, the container is programmed to wear out and fail.
The time and date for your container are unknown. Several factors affect the expiration date. There are imperfections in the unit, accidents, disease, unforeseen circumstances, and any of these may also cause early termination of the container and the experiment (see Article One).
The goal of this adventure isn’t to have fun. Sorry. The primary purpose is to learn lessons. You will learn lots of lessons. You might learn a lesson, like falling in love, for instance. Some lessons are not pleasant, like losing a loved one (see Article One).
But each day of the experiment, you will have opportunities, challenges, trials, and tests. You need to figure them out, and there isn’t a cheat sheet available. Every day you are the oldest you’ve ever been, which presents new challenges.
If you are born into or fall into a religion, that’s a part of the lesson you choose. The object is to find your way out. Don’t be upset about this. Remember, you picked this lesson (see Article One). A lot of people get stuck in this lesson.
To emphasize how essential lessons are, we often get the opportunity to repeat them. Sometimes this is because you missed the object of the lesson. Or perhaps you wanted to emphasize the learning aspect (see Article One).
Unfortunately, sometimes lessons are repeated for no reason at all. This spiritual experiment has several known flaws. This one we call the Synchronicity Programming Error.
Perhaps you are just addicted to unpleasant experiences. You may be attracted to the wrong type of people because they mirror something in you? It’s up to you to figure it out. If you can’t, perhaps it’s just a programming error. After all, this is a complex system, and we’re still debugging it as we go. Did we mention it’s always in Beta release mode?
Your decisions result in a variety of intended and unintended consequences. Since this experiment has continually changing variables, there’s no way for you to get it right every time. Isn’t that great! It’s important to remember. There are no mistakes. There is simply a continuing litany of lessons (see Article One, Three, and Four and, of course, the Synchronicity Programming Error)
We know this article as “the awareness catch.” You must be “aware” to learn and understand the lessons fully (see Article One and Four). Lessons and learning opportunities come in a variety of different ways. Some are clear and some not.
That means, if you aren’t aware enough to understand the lesson, you will keep repeating it until you finally “wake up.” There is no part of the experiment that does not contain a lesson. You may as well awaken to your fullest capacity and make the most of this fantastic learning opportunity.
There is no reset button (see Article One). Other situations may look better than where you are. But if, and when the “there” becomes “here,” you will see another “there” that looks better than “here.” Whether you think you can or think you can’t get “there,” you will be right in either case. (If you don’t understand this article, see Article Six).
All things and people in the great spiritual experiment are a mirror of your nature. You cannot love or hate something about another thing or person unless it reflects something that a part of you. Some things and people can help you learn your lessons, and some are not. Your nature is complex. Your natural state is happiness. Don’t f__k this part up.
It’s a scavenger hunt of sorts. You begin with just three states of consciousness, waking, dreaming, and sleeping. However, there are other states. You need to find and use several tools to help you wake up and become more (and more) “aware.” The more “aware” you are (See Article Six), the greater your understanding of the lessons in the great spiritual experiment.
All the tools are already downloaded onto your hard drive. They are a part of your operating system. These include your intuition and other doors to non-ordinary states of consciousness. Other people may also be available to help you find these doors. Others can walk the path with you, but it’s your path, and the steps you take are yours alone (see Article One).
No one is going to remind you to seek other states of consciousness. If you miss the opportunity to open the door to other states of awareness, you’ll miss more than half of the available experience. If you don’t do this, you will automatically be reincarnated into whatever form of life you hate the most, and that’s probably why there are a lot of rocks.
Whether you acknowledge it, you are taking part in “The Great Spiritual Experiment.” Enjoy the journey.
