Man's Cosmic Game LUH
Are we all part of a Cosmic Game, or rather an interactive 4D movie,
playing characters who ignore its Authors and pretend to call it 'reality"? This
hypothesis is suggested here in simple scientific terms and, surprisingly, fits
holy texts, such as Bible and the Gospels perfectly and, also, many ancient
legends and myths.
Human bodies might actually be sophisticated transient terminals of one
eternal Memory; although they can move and feel emotions, they don't yet
coincide with their true Selves, who are the immortal players of Man's Cosmic
Game, beyond the 4D movie.
The challenge is now to become what we truly are: protagonists of the
Cosmic Game, seeking our own evolution and so achieving the sixth sense:
Oneness of sciences and religions is the key-point of the book; human
origins, goals, life and death assume a scientific meaning. Astrology and
psychology are both interpreted as sciences of a rhrell known cosmic
The observed universe is just one of many universes, that we cannot
observe, as long as our perception is limited to only five senses. If we trust
ourselves and passionately seek inner truth, we can achieve the sixth sense,
perceive them all and therefore conquer our own immortality.
Man's Cosmic Game is a journey in time through parallel universes, i.e.
stages of the human body's genetic evolution, which is now possible for all true

MAN AND KNOWLEDGE
3. 1- The tree of knowledge
How does knowledge happen? Do we formulate a faithful image of "reality",
or do we invent an arbitrary one? That is the question, outlining two
alternatives, which has been asked throughout the whole of philosophy without
suspecting that there could be a third comprehending them both. Previously
suggested by many savants in the past, the third can now be identified in
technical terms by quantum physics, with its basic uncertainty principle.
"Reality" is not an "object", independent from the subject, but only one of many
probable virtual realities, that become real if, and only if, the subject
In spite of many perplexities, quantum physics is a winning theory, the
basis of all technologies which invade the markets nowadays, from quartz watches
to television or computers; Evidence that we live in a cybernetic supercosmos
where many virtual universes are possible, depending on the observer's
"Reality" is just that particular channel that we humans choose from all
the many probable universes or TV channels3. How do we choose it though? And why
do we choose this particular one? Here we suffer and run endlessly towards
goals, which dissolve into the air like mirages in the desert, when we reach
them, and are then replaced by new ones which inevitably leave us with the
rushing, loneliness, and in the end old age and Inevitable death.
Death is the mystery of human existence on Earth; it hovers over life
either like a taboo to ignore, or an event to cry about; the more so when it is
repeated, diffused or amplified by the mass media. Yet myths, philosophies and
legends speak about immortal gods. In the Old Testament of the Bible, an eternal
paradise is described, the Garden of Eden from which man is banished because of
a sin· tasting the fruit of the tree of good and evil or the tree of knowledge
that God had forbidden. Since then man has been exiled from his original state
of wellbeing, prosperity, and perennial communion with all.
But why is knowledge a sin?
CHANGE INTO FIRE
"Abba Lot went to see Abba Joseph and said to
him, 'Abba, I fast a
little, I pray and meditate,
I live in peace and as far as I can, I purify
thoughts. What else can I do?'
"Then the old man stood up and
hands towards heaven. His fingers burst into
flame like ten
lamps of fire and he said 'Why not
change entirely, into fire?'"
the Desert Fathers
