In Leap! The Movie, some contemporary philosophers reflect on the utltimate game of life we are playing in the virtual reality we call the physical universe. They also acknowledge how old the idea is, from as disparate sources as the Vedic Scriptures, Plato, Woody Allen, and more. This is a great introduction to an idea that I think could take humanity to the next paradigm shift, but it is just an introduction. I find this an interesting argument advancing the premise that we may be dreaming. We have to wake up, which I think entails relinquishing the ego. But in the meantime let’s make it a happy dream, a feel-good movie for ourselves and the apparent “others.”
Take life lightly and see how easy things become.
