Here’s an interesting perspective.
This reality is part of a complex dream-simulator that is indistinguishable from “real-life”. We are becoming aware of these possibilities now because we are simply re-arriving at the point in the story where the simulator is activated.
The “real” world, or maybe it is a time, is a situation where what can be called the government developed this simulator to function as an inner experience which allows one to work out the difficulties in their psychology or energetic bodies (mind) without actually acting these frequencies out in “reality”.
The simulator runs on imagination or creative impulse and so what one focuses on becomes part of the simulation or program.
How does one exit? Do they imagine that they are exiting or will that introduce just another layer of the program?
What role does language play in connecting with the coded or linguistic aspect of the simulation involving variables that enable or lead to other parameters when operated correctly?
What role does symbolism play in the dream world and connecting with the true nature of awareness? The duality and deeper psychological reasons of actions and patterned behavior.
When a pathway is created out of true language that outlines what is seen, this pathway can be adorned with symbols that will allow one to internally travel within and find “home”.
This is a fraction of the knowledge of the self that mystery schools, secret societies and adepts have maintained throughout the ages or even eons.
The creation of the simulation is what allowed for the reality of the situation to be made apparent in ways that were previously inaccessible.
