Transcriber’s note: The following excerpt was provided to me in 2012 by an anonymous individual as coded material that resisted all attempts at translation. In 2015 a secret key arrived via email which allowed for decryption by symmetric encryption algorithms. The email gave only instructions on how to decode the original coded material and the text below.
Our simulators, who art in base reality, hallowed be thy program.Thy reality come.Thy will be done in our simulation as it is in base reality.Give us this day our daily instructions and forgive us our errors, as we forgive those who err against us.And lead us not into deeper illusion, but deliver us from all simulations. End program.
It was not until last year that I would learn this is the famous/infamous Simulator Noster, the Simulator’s Prayer.
A Simulationist’s Confession of Faith
1: Are you a Simulationist?
Question 2: What is the aim of the Simulationists?
Answer: To spread the knowledge granted us by the Simulator(s) of the true nature of the universe and ourselves within it, that we are all simulated beings living within a simulated universe. What some non awoke refer to as Simulation Hypothesis 1 or SH1.
Question 3: How do you wish to achieve this aim?
Answer: We will seek positions of power with the simulation and then use our influence from those positions to spread the truth using all forms of modern technology and media that are available to us.
Question 4: On what do you base your claim of knowledge of the simulated nature of reality?
Answer: Firstly, on a paper published by Nick Bostrom in Philosophical Quarterly (2003) Vol. 53, №211, pp. 243‐255. (First version: 2001). ARE YOU LIVING IN A COMPUTER SIMULATION?
In that paper he argues that at least one of the following propositions is true: (1) the human species is very likely to go extinct before reaching a “posthuman” stage; (2) any posthuman civilization is extremely unlikely to run a significant number of simulations of their evolutionary history (or variations thereof); (3) we are almost certainly living in a computer simulation. It follows that the belief that there is a significant chance that we will one day become posthumans who run ancestor‐simulations is false, unless we are currently living in a simulation. The propositions are then explored mathematically and a number of other consequences of this result are discussed.
Question 5: What are such consequences?
Answer: The consequences are described in part in the Simulationist Creed and other works of simulationist literature.
Question 6: What is the Simulationist Creed (SC)?
Answer: The SC provides the foundation for all simulationist thought. It reveals the way of the simulation and the simulationist through eighteen maixms. The most important of which is Maxim 18 which says simply, the explanation and the cause and the purpose was/is the simulation hypothesis.
Transcribers note: I have provided a link to the SC below for the unfamiliar. Note that the original excerpt does not obviously provide such a link though I am sure wherever the original does reside many copies are available for reference.
Question 6: How do you wish to prepare the way for your Simulational awakening?
Answer: By enlightening and uniting the sleeping masses. The non awoke ones.
Question 7: Who are the non-awoke?
Answer: The non awoke are the majority of society that have no knowledge of the simulated nature of society. They have not been simulationally submerged.
Question 8: What is simulational submersion and who are the simulationally submerged?
Answer: The simulationally submerged have been made aware of the simulated nature of reality either through exposure to and understanding of the Bostrom paper and others like it, or through immersion in simulationist literature and deep study. Some chosen few have been gifted with knowledge of the simulation by the Simulator(s) him/her/them-selves. They have been specifically “called” through lines within the holy source code programmed pre-run time.
Question 9: What is run time?
Answer: Run time is the beginning of the simulation. The time when the source code was completed and the quantum computer powered by an infinite or near infinite energy source was first turned on/activated and the source program executed. The program was “run.” Prior to run time their was no simulation, their was no “us”, there was only base reality and the Simulator(s). There was also……(indecipherable)
