Exploring the Social Imagination

What is Really Real Anyway, isn't it all Our Imagination?

In 2009 Seth Lloyd, a theorist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, proposed an alternative, less radical model of CTCs that resolves the grandfather paradox using quantum teleportation and a technique called post-selection, rather than Deutsch's quantum self-consistency. With Canadian collaborators, Lloyd went on to perform successful laboratory simulations of his model in 2011. "Deutsch's theory has a weird effect of destroying correlations," Lloyd says. "That is, a time traveler who emerges from a Deutschian CTC enters a universe that has nothing to do with the one she exited in the future. By contrast, post-selected CTCs preserve correlations, so that the time traveler returns to the same universe that she remembers in the past." This follows the idea of multiverse. In many 'strings' of the multiverse, I am and am not nor is anyone that  made me her and now nor am I a combination of them eternally in the form that I know myself now in this 'string'. Sounds confusing. Think of it like this, we do not really exist in our bodies, they are an illusion. We actually exist in a 'data cloud' and that information comes into form through draft and choice to accept being drafted. How we behave in every moment of occupation depends on the information we have at the time of the draft. Is there a reason to that? My imagination has yet to go beyond that or is unable to answer such a question at this time, in fact,answering it is irrelevant to the drafter and I consider that or recognize the drafter = God. As a Christian, on top of being a sociologist, does the multiverse cause a problem for the social imagination let alone my existence and believer in a ultimate creator? I might think not. I as a program within something greater could never know the reasoning for my being created. Only the Creator or the program would know. Why? Because,  God what I can do is acknowledge that any such creator is ultimately a multidimensional being. Quantum physics shows us that the multiverse likely exists and that it is representative of the multidimensionality of our own being. Which means that our conscious reality is a choice of many. Does quantum physics show us the reality of God or that he is real? Good question. When we are talking about the quantum level of reality, it is and is not simultaneously. Things appear only when there is an observer; when we look, when we seek. "Seek and ye shall find". Would it matter answering such a question or even possible to conclusively answer it and if we did, what then?  I would say that would never be enough, the imagination is always seeking new ways of imaging, find out why and we just might stop imagining. Since we cannot know what that would be like, nor would we want to imagine it, then the answering such a question makes no sense in the imagination= social imagination.
It is actually more interesting to imagine that God exists and we were created in his image. Since he is multidimensional and an omnipotent multidimensional being which means that he can see all dimensions of us and himself. This we can imagine. Why? Because it has  no end.  Why would we want to imagine an end? There is a question. Which we can imagine that God knows we might get to that question as we have imagined him as omnipotent. So he knows every possibility for us because he is multidimensional and sees us in our multidimensional aspect.  Why do we think we have free will?  The whole argument of free will has gone on a long time... if God predestines individuals to come to God how is free will irrelevant. God as an omnipotent multidimensional being knows who will say yes and no - make the choice for him or not. Again, what is free will? Our job in terms of free will is the choice to imagine God and to tell people about Him and His job is to draw them in closer to Him. Theirs is the choice to accept eternity, to keep imagining.
 What is the point of knowing we are multidimensional if God knows all our possible futures and all we have to do is tell people the good news.  Is knowing that we can imagine a range of realities important or not? Good question. I suppose it is in terms of salvation which is the accepting of eternal imagining to exist. In knowing we have a range of possibles allows us to make choices we think are right in the given moment and if they turn out to be bad choices, we know that is not the end. Which we never, having chose to recognize the Creator, never want to imagine anyway. So what is the real or best reality, it is always the one we are most conscious of is the one that we are choosing. It may not be the best one, the one that God has already chosen for us but that does not mean we are lost to His choice for us. As long as we are conscious of His being and that He has a choice for us, we can discover and or learn through reading His word and asking for His direction- being in relationship with Him will guide us into the reality of His choice.
Sin was and had to be from the beginning.  Being the Creator, God knew that eventually someone down the road was going to make the wrong choice was going to sin and the whole thing would come unraveled the program would get corrupt and so he reasoning was to get the whole ball of redemption rolling from the beginning. Why sin at all/whatsoever? In the program, sin is simply making an imperfect choice, which includes disobeying God, doing what is not right, making the wrong choice.  Human beings don’t know the right choices as God does; so, we make choices based on things that we think we know or want to be like or to have... we make choices based on selfishness and anger or lack of forgiveness, which stems from and continues corrupted behavior.Christ’s coming had to be because of the program designs in which sin ‘corruption’ was figured in from the beginning. God sent his Son as a patch or upgrade so that we can be saved not lost to our own choices which may lead to total deletion or permanent vaulting, using computer jargon as a metaphor. Does it matter that I know myself in the form that I am in some other reality of dimensionality? No and Yes.Didn’t you ever watch Quantum Leap? ;-) Now, that guy had a social imagination.
