1.The universe, our world, and all things within (a part of) it are the simulation (are simulated). This includes ourselves.
2. The basis of the simulation is a quantum computer of near/actual infinite energy and thus has randomness “baked” in, ergo the simulation has randomness “baked” in, therefore predestination is impossible in the simulation.
3. Free will exists in the simulation only in so much as the parameters of the simulation code (physical/natural laws) allow.
4. There may exist other simulated universes and we may exist within one or a near infinite number of them as a ‘lower’ or ‘higher’ level.
5. There is an “actual” universe outside of the simulation and its physical and natural laws are substantially similar or identical to those within the simulation.
6. Leaving the simulation is not possible while “living” within it, though it may be that our minds/consciousness visit/experience them while asleep and dreaming or with consciousness altering drugs.
7. Morals/values are only important in so much as they effect the proper operation of the simulation. They will always tend toward the “good” or “right” because death/destruction and other evil acts are disfavored (though only slightly) in the simulation code (universe and persons within it).
8. Errors in the ‘program’ are not possible/visible at the macro level of perception/existence. Any errors are propagated and ‘eliminated’ at the quantum level. This manifests as various aspects of quantum “weirdness.”
9. When we die/end our program within the simulation we either cease to be completely or are shunted into another level of the simulation or possibly the real world.
10. All world religions are false insomuch as there is no God within/of the simulation. The simulator(s) is/are not God(s) but have what we consider God-like powers.
11. Much like us, some of the simulator(s) have their own religion/God in the actual universe, others do not.
12. There is no punishment for ‘sin’ or reward for ‘goodness’ after our lives in the simulation end, however, that does not mean that we can/should act/be evil or that we should not strive for the good/right.
13. Our ‘programming’ within the simulation constrains us from acts of great evil or great good (i.e. there is an extremely low probability-bordering on zero-that we will do great evil or great good in our lives), however, the randomness inherent in the simulation means that over time at least some of us will.
14. For the vast majority of persons in the simulation who will not commit great evil or great good acts our acts are constrained by the simulation programming and will tend to favor the good (though with only a slight probability — 50.7% to 50.5%). Thus over time humanity will evolve to the good and the right and the just.
15. What is the good and right and just is determined by the simulators as is what is evil and wrong and unjust. We have/had no choice in the matter. We only know that these things are appropriate and seem to make sense within the simulation. That does not mean they are aligned with the good of the actual universe though the probability is high that they are.
16. Our consciousness/self knowledge/awareness is/was created at a definite time within the simulation by a set of code that ‘activated’ it. This is very similar to the thinking of Julian Jaynes in The Origins of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind though Jaynes erred when he suggested evolutionary pressures primarily drove that change, it was in fact code within the simulation that caused it.
17. The code that activated our consciousness also contained within it bits of ideas that would become the simulation hypothesis. In other words that code gave us consciousness and an explanation of our origins.
18. The explanation and the cause and the purpose was/is the simulation hypothesis.
