Ramblings of an Insomniac Sagittarius

So what’s keeping me up tonight?

Well, it’s this light; you know the , the bright light at the end of the tunnel that so many report after a near-death experience. I think about that light a lot, and it’s no wonder really as, although our world is full of countless mysteries, there aren’t too many that are as incredible to think about then the question of life after death. of my favorite pastimes is to try to picture just what it is exactly that awaits us at the end of our current lives, and at the end of that lighted tunnel. 

Firstly, let’s take a cursory look at the odds that there is something for us after this lifetime. At minimum it’s a 50-50 shot, as either there is something after here or there isn’t. But we can go beyond that and adjust those odds a bit by adding variables to our equation.

Let’s consider the countless reports of an afterlife witnessed during a near-death experience. If just one of these reports is accurate-just one mind you, then the odds that something awaits us after this lifetime shifts , wouldn’t you say?

Aside from that, we can as a variable the incredible long shots necessary for life as we know it to come into being. These long shots certainly shift our odds considerably, and I must say it’s quite refreshing and enjoyable to stand on the short-shot side for once.
  

Another piece of evidence we would be remiss not to examine is a piece of evidence that is certainly the largest and for me, the most , yet I believe it is the single piece of evidence that is more commonly overlooked when examining the life after death question; our visible universe itself. Just think about it for a ; does this incredible, , , gorgeous, mysterious and seemingly boundless kingdom resemble in any way an accident? Or does it resemble more a of conscious and purposeful creation? 

When I look around, especially when I look up, left with absolutely no doubt that all and everything is a product of intelligent design. So for me, the odds are astoundingly good there awaits us something incredible, something miraculous, and for me, something so exciting to think about. I think a lot of us may lose sight of that sometimes.

So, what is it then that awaits us? Let’s start off with what is, for me, but perhaps not you, the most hellish possibility. If the bright light at the end of the tunnel is a hospital delivery room and we are immediately born right back into this world, well then, I would have to say that all those biblical stories about hell are true. 

But moving on to more positive possibilities of the white light at the end of the tunnel, I feel a very good possibility would be that the white light that we are seeing is actually our eyes filling with light as we remove a virtual reality headset. You may feel that this is kind of an odd possibility, but I feel it is a very real possible that all of us are an Earth-sized virtual reality game, an MMORPG, or massively multiplayer online role- game, not unlike World of Warcraft.

Can you imagine that? Just imagine, at the end of your life here, you experience the sensation of someone somewhere helping you pull from your head a virtual reality headset as your eyes fill with the bright light of a room, possibly even your very own bedroom, somewhere, sometime. Where could that possibly be, and what can our reallives possibly be like?  

Just think about for a moment. If our lives are constructs of a super advanced virtual reality game, just imagine what our genuine reality could be like. It could be absolutely unidentifiable to the lives we are now living. We could be living eternal and incredible lives humans currently reserve only for gods. Wouldn’t that be wonderful? Wouldn’t that be miraculous? And I see all this as a very plausible possibility. I even see this possibility as the most plausible, as amazing as that may seem.  

Now, if we are currently living a reality that is completely removed from our true reality, then how would we have entered this virtual state? We must enter it somehow, and we aren’t getting hit over the head with a brick like in an Ignatz and Krazy Kat cartoon. No, there must be some kind of process we go through to enter this state of reality, and I feel it’s likely we utilize some kind of virtual reality technology, even if that technology is largely natural, meaning we utilize our minds more than we rely on technology. Nonetheless, I believe that we are using some kind of virtual reality to enter this reality, this MMORPG.

Just sitting here at the computer sharing my thoughts about this with you causes my mind to stir, and I see I’m going to be up very late tonight as I lie in bed pondering all of this, but I can’t think of a better reason to miss a little sleep.
