We are excited to invite you to a Virtual Reality experiment which will take place in AltspaceVR this Friday the 28th of September at 19:00 UTC where we will be using meditation to reach out to the universe and to dive within ourselves and connect with the baseline of reality.
If you have a VR headset* you can join in the experiment by following this link:
What we want to learn from you is how you felt meditating inside of VR and if this is something you would like to do more often. We would also like to find out if you would like for the experience to be delivered to you via an artificial intelligence within virtual reality.
Why are we doing this?
To test an idea that at the very fundamental levels of space-time, at what is called the Planck scale which is unimaginably small, space-time is not smooth but a sea of pure randomness and from this boiling quantum foam of pure infinite randomness gives rise to order and all matter and energy within our universe.
In the same way a plane flying over the ocean may look down and see a perfectly smooth glass like surface, someone in a small boat on the same ocean would feel and see the waves and choppiness of the ocean.

This theory plays nicely into the concept that consciousness itself is a baseline property of reality and therefore we embody this consciousness alongside everything else that exists within the universe.
But what creates self awareness and experience and separates us from inanimate objects is intelligence. The more intelligence there is available the more awareness there can be, and so a threshold can be crossed into what we know as self awareness.
Through meditation it is possible to reach a state of self abstraction, a state where one may feel the deeper levels of connection to the baseline of consciousness, mind and reality.
