New Book: The Universe is Virtual

Alexander Marchand aka Zander Marz author of “Beyond the Government Haunted World”

has just done “The Universe is Virtual”

“It may seem weird, but evidence suggesting that the universe is actually a virtual reality is quite ample. And much of that evidence comes directly from establishment science. The only problem is that contemporary establishment science doesn’t yet view the universe as being virtual. However, as you will discover in this comic book, contemporary science should start looking at the universe as a virtual reality. Because looking at the universe as a virtual reality provides coherent, logical answers to the big questions of science, philosophy, and spirituality. Questions like: What does the double slit experiment really mean? Why is the speed of light a constant? From where did the universe originate? What is consciousness? What is reality? What are we? Why are we here? What is the meaning of life? This book provides answers to those questions by taking you, the reader, on a journey through five major paradigm shifts awaiting present-day science. In the end, whether you are able to handle the mind-bending ideas proposed by this book or not, you’ll be wiser for having had the open mind to take the journey.”

Its a neat book on a digital physics conception of the universe done in a short graphics novel style accessible even to kids. Based in part on ideas from Thomas Campbell and Brian Whitworth. Amazon has a look inside for it and its available in print and on the Kindle. In response to Mr. Marchands earlier work his readers kept referring to Campbell and Whitworth and this book is partly a response.

It isn’t a book on digital physics whatsoever, it is yet more pseudo-scientific BS, which nobody should be giving to kids.

Here is what the idea of digital Physics is:

Here are 3 excerpts from the SIX discerning readers:

“I’m glad I finally know how to combat Lucifer efficiently.”

“Once the dreamer chooses Oneness through quantum forgiveness, the game’s over.”

“Now I have an antidote called quantum forgiveness.”

One has absolutely nothing to do with the other, as usual it is someone invoking science to sell Snake oil. You really do have an endless supply of this stuff don’t you?

Lucifer! Lol. But I do think we’ve entered into a post materialist age. We may need to apply the logic of the Fermi Paradox to ourselves. I was watching someone play GTA5 on a new console and was thinking these reality simulations in the not too distant future may have more of us questioning if we are in a digital loop.

I wonder if the lack of mystical experiences or inability to to recall them are a kind of disability, kind of like color blindness and tone deafness. Try to describe the color red to someone who has never seen a color. Drugs according to people like Alduous Huxley and John Lennon aren’t able to substitute. To paraphrase Marchand “mystical experience falsifies the objective world view for the experience.”

I finished the book. Despite the above reviews that say silly things its far from pseudo science. The book does talk about the limits of science and knowledge. I don’t think it suggests as the digital physics wiki excerpt above does, that the universe is ultimately computable, but it does talk about the consequences of the limits of computation and potential implications for our perception of reality. It also talks about the viewpoint that would take the paradox out of the double slit experiment and the hard problem of consciousness.
