Simulation Theory Gets Redone by Research of Marshall Barnes, R&D Eng

The research of R&D engineer Marshall Barnes has reached a point where it can shine new light on a popular theory in Silicon Valley - that our universe is a computer simulation. This is part one of a two part release.

YELLOW SPRINGS, Ohio - Nov. 16, 2016 - PRLog -- Recently, an article by Glenn Reynolds for USA Today asked the question, ""Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?" Noting they "aren't just lines from 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' but a serious question for many", Reynolds posits the theory of Oxford philosopher, Nick Bostrom, that we're in a computer simulation, has gotten serious consideration amongst billionaires of Silicon Valley. Reynolds wrote, referring to a New York Times article by Ed Frenkel -

"And, as Frenkel also noted, scientists have detected small anomalies in some computer simulations, anomalies that if discovered in the real world, could indicate that we actually are living in a simulated world".

R&D engineer, Marshall Barnes discovered such an anomaly but has a different interpretation. Marshall states. "Look. For me, the concept goes back to the late 90s when I was building my first laboratory for pure research into electromagnetic fields and human consciousness. The movie, The 13th Floor, was one of my favorites. We studied it because of similarities between it and parallel universes and dreams, which no one was thinking about. The idea is digtalcentric, meaning it comes from people whose worldview is biased towards a cyber orientation. They say we're in a computer simulation but it's not supported by evidence".

Marshall points to late physicist, John Archibald Wheeler of Princeton, whose 'it from bit' theory states under all physical phenomena, is information. Marshall argues, that doesn't mean the universe is a computer simulation created by a future post-human civilization.

"The assumptions you have to accept are baseless. I compare them to Stephen Hawking's unfounded fear of an alien invasion. You only have to fear it if you're completely unaware of the overwhelming fact the odds are against intelligent life having warp drive technology and then finding us. The odds are against advanced creative thinking period. Just look at us. How many nations have been to the moon? One. How many to other planets? None. If every advanced nation on Earth were wiped out, how long before Masai warriors, or Laplanders start running the world? My point is, the inspirations and motivation that drive Western civilization are unique, they're not even consistent across the world. The assumptions of Bostrom are not based on real evidence."

Marshall echoes Philip K. Dick, the science fiction writer behind classics like Total Recall and Marshall has been connected to an effort to develop that technology to resolve psychological issues during long manned space flights (see ). In 1977, Dick proclaimed, "We are living in a computer programed reality, and the only clue that we have to it is when some variable is changed and some alteration in our reality occurs. We would have the overwhelming impression that we were reliving the present, deja vu, perhaps in precisely the same way, hearing the same words, saying the same words. I submit that these impressions are valid and significant, and I will even say this - that such an impression is a clue that at some past time point, that some variable was changed. reprogrammed as it were and that because of this an alternative world branched off".

Marshall understands his position but disagrees with the conclusion.

"I've studied deja vu", he asserts, "I've come to the conclusion it's a bleed through from our other selves in a parallel universe - but I use the caveat that what I call 'deja vu' is not only the feeling you've done something before but as you realize it, you know what's going to happen next. I am a professional researcher and my standards for the phenomena are higher."

Marshall's conducted an experiment based on retrocausality that produces the most startling results ever. For a 30th of a second, a laser appears out of nowhere to strike the detection area after the laser has been switched off. It is exactly the kind of "glitch" that Dick was referring to, following the same rules of retrocausality set-up by Wheeler. Marshall's response is straight forward.

"It's not actually changing the past but creating a new universe with a different past. It's what Dick tried to say about an event in the past reprogrammed that creates an alternate universe. The event is a blade dropping immediately after the photons in the beam pass - suddenly enough it's almost like it had always been there. That triggers the glitch effect and the universe resets with a different result - the laser striking the side detection area, now without cause."

Physics professor Sylvester James Gates discovered what appears to be computer codes, like you find in a web browser, in equations describing the cosmos and string theory. Marshall isn't surprised.

"That tells me the universe is information based as a function of its physical reality. Perhaps it wasn't created by post-human descendants in the future. Bostrom ignores our universe is around 26 billion years old - double what scientists normally say, because it takes 13.5 billion years for the light and radiation that we're getting from the supposed edge, to get here. The real boundary is far beyond that and means the creators of this simulation existed billions of years before. Perhaps they're not post-human descendants but unidentified creators from the far, far past. It proves my point about digitalcentrism. Without an obsession about the future with computers, that flaw in the theory would be obvious."
