The TLDR: In this piece, I discuss my theory as to why Elon Musk might be mostly right; that we may live in a sort of simulation.

My problem with Elon's theory is that it lacks the tenets of Consciousness and Free Will and there is no physical evidence to prove we're living in a simulation, (other than some mathematical equations that present the possibility).

However, there are a growing number of scientists who posit that we may be living in a Holographic Universe.

Black holes are giving us clues as to how the base structure of our Universe is actually just information - remember, atoms are 99.99% empty space and as the Double Slit Experiment shows us, unless a subatomic particle is directly observed/measured, then it quite literally doesn't exist (most of the Universe is "Dark [unknown] matter").

Further, the only reason matter collides instead of melding into each other is because of magnetism due to vibration - which we DEFINITELY don't fully understand yet.  (Matter has these boundaries due to Consciousness collapsing wave forms, as I discuss below).

A Holographically projected Universe Model solves how Psychic phenomenon works: Those who are psychic can move their attention around a single informational substrate that contains all of the data of the Universe.

It's this informational substrate (through which the hologram is formed) that enables people to be psychic - psychics gather information from a single non-localized space/time (the "Akashic Record").  If there wasn't a single informational substrate, then psychics couldn't be psychic.

A Holographically projected Universe Model answers why Astrology is based on the multimillennial maxim "As Above, So Below".

If you think about it, the whole idea of Astrology "As Above, So Below" is how a hologram works. (It's kind of how DNA works too, but that's a different subject).

Were the Ancients right all along?

The following is my attempt to connect the maxims of Astrology with the Holographic Universe Theory, Quantum Wave Theory, and Consciousness (and our Free Will).

Astrology: 'As Above, so Below'

Astrology is the multi-millennia study of planetary patterns observed in the sky and their thematical affects to what happens on Earth, the Macro vs the Micro.

Astrology has been practiced by most ancient cultures globally, across the Middle East, the Indus Valley, China, Polynesia, the Ancient Near East, pre-Columbian Mesoamerica, classical Greece, Islam, Judaism and Christianity and more.

Even the English word "consider" has its roots in astrology, derived from Latin words 'con' meaning 'with' and 'sidera' meaning 'stars.' (Be with the stars - be with the truth).

Luke 21:25 There will be Signs in the Sun, Moon and Stars - Jesus

Its validity as a phenomenon has kept it deeply intertwined with religion, shaping rituals, calendars and belief systems since at least the 2nd millennium BCE.

There are various Astrological systems and while they work in different ways (each observing different cycles), they're all essentially describing the same pattern of energies (but from different angles).

Some might liken the different systems of Astrology to the parable of The Blind Men and an Elephant where 3 blind men come across an elephant - each touching a different part of the elephant, each finding a real, but different truth about the same elephant.

In any case, the various systems are inspired by observing the correlations between the sky (controlled by God) and people or events on Earth.  These correlations have been observed for millennia and are still used by financial and political leaders in modern times.

How does Astrology work?  We don't know yet. 

The mechanisms behind astrology are not yet fully understood. However, there appear to be reliable astronomical cycles that are correlative with events and people on Earth.

Those who study Astrology know that living things are imbued with the traits of the Astrological/Astronomical pattern that was occurring during their first breath at birth - essentially becoming living snapshots of that energy pattern seen in the sky, at the moment of their birth.  Perhaps that is what is meant by the idea that we are all created in God's image (the Universe's image).  Perhaps that is what Jesus meant when he said "The Kingdom of God is within you". Luke 17:21

"As Above, so Below," is the millennia old saying, and quantum physics is beginning to shed light on the fact that everything is connected in some grand entangled matrix (but only if we pay attention to it).

It's as if the themes of the planets provide a macroscopic perspective of complex, self-similar patterns, like a hologram.

The Planets show the 'Macro' potentials of a wave form while the souls collapse the potentials and play them out on a 'Micro' level. 

While the specifics remain mysterious, astrology seems to quantumly connect us to larger cosmological (Godly) forces, providing a glimpse of the interplay between the great and the small.

Quite a lot of Conscious Energy has been feed into these systems, whether they are inspired by God or not.


Quantum Entanglement

 "Spooky action at a distance" - Space.com

One of the strangest aspects of quantum physics is quantum entanglement.  Quantum entanglement is a proven phenomenon in quantum physics where two or more particles become linked, and the state of one instantly influences the state of the other, regardless of distance. 

Albert Einstein floating in quantum space

Back in his day, Einstein himself, dismissed Quantum Entanglement as a phenomenon, "spooky action at a distance," but decades later we have progressed to the point where we can scientifically prove that quantum entanglement not only works, Chinese scientists have been able to entangle photon pairs at a distance of 1200km using satellites.  

"If you observe a particle in one place, another particle—even one light-years away—will instantly change its properties, as if the two are connected by a mysterious communication channel. Scientists have observed this phenomenon in tiny objects such as atoms and electrons but in two new studies, researchers report seeing entanglement in devices nearly visible to the naked eye." - 2018, Science.org

Perhaps one day, we will be able to scientifically measure the entanglement forces between planets and living beings.  To this point, we have only been able to observe empirical evidence of astrology working, most reliably in personalities, as they become existent this 3rd dimension.

Schrödinger's Cat, Astrology, and Consciousness

In quantum physics, Schrodinger's Cat thought experiment describes the wave function of a particle before it is observed. This wave function contains all the potential states that the particle can be in. However, when the particle is observed, the wave function "collapses" into a single state. The cat is both dead and alive until we open the box to observe if it is dead or alive (until then, it is both!).  

In simpler terms, it's as if the particle doesn't make up its mind to exist or not until someone pays attention to it.

Most theories suggest that it's the act of observation—or consciousness—that prompts this wave function collapse. The mere act of looking at the wave forces the abstract wave into a concrete particle, pinning it to a single reality.

In other words, if a tree falls in the forest and there is no one there to witness it


Astrology offers a similar idea about the moment of your birth. As you draw your first breath, you're observed by the world around you, and in that instant, you become woven into the fabric of the universe. This observation imprints you with the cosmic pattern at play during your birth—the planetary alignments, star placements, literally everything. You become a tiny piece of the larger fractal pattern. In other words, the "Above" becomes ingrained into your very being—the "Below."

"A soul, taking on the pattern of the Universe at first breath" - Ben Baker/Midjourney

Just as you're embedded in this universal matrix, your astrological Birth Chart acts like a wave function of your life's possibilities. The planetary alignments show the Macro view of the fractal pattern of which you have become in this life and they show the framework for potential experiences, choices, and outcomes. However, it's your consciousness and Free Will that act as the observer, constantly collapsing your "life wave function" into a unique, singular path.

In both realms, it's the power of observation that transforms potential into reality. Whether you're influencing a quantum wave into becoming a particle, or steering your destiny through choices, your conscious intent manifests one possibility from a sea of potentials as defined by your Birth Chart.

So, while quantum physics and astrology may seem like strange bedfellows, they both touch on a mystical idea: Your very consciousness has the power to shape your reality from a landscape of nearly infinite possibilities.


Everything is Connected

But, we have free Will...

Astrology is one of the best methods for us to learn about who we are, where we came from and where we are going. 

Astrology reveals CHARACTER and character is destiny. If we can change our character, then we will have changed our destiny. The main uses of Astrology are diagnosis of health and sickness, character analysis, vocational guidance, analysis of children's horoscopes so as to give parents a better idea as to how best to raise their children, and analysis of the compatibilities between people.

Astrology does not show anything but tendencies. We can rule our stars by exerting our Will. If you decide to flow with the tide of life, then the tendencies indicated in the birth chart will at most times have their effect. The one thing a birth chart does not show is the WILL of the individual and how she/he may exert it. The matter of exercising free will is left entirely up to the individual. The wise man rules his stars, the fool is ruled by them. Astrology forewarns and being forewarned, we are thus forearmed to better cope with the struggles of life.

Remember that good or so-called evil configurations are not the result of chance or luck, but are the product of our own past acts -- the horoscope shows what we have earned by our past living and therefore what we are entitled to in the present life.

What we lack in this life can be gained in the future by applying ourselves to the task at hand, learning to selflessly love all of God's children, even our so-called "enemies".

The stars IMPEL but do not COMPEL. As Goethe, the great mystic, said, "From every power that holds the world in chains, Man frees himself when self-control he gains."

The Law of Consequence ("Whatsoever a man sows, that he shall also reap" Galatians 6:7) works in harmony with the planets.

The spirit is born into the physical world at that opportune time when the Law and the planets may operate in harmony with each other. The birth of an Ego is so timed by God, that the horoscope, which is the clock of destiny, registers the kind of debts which the Ego has incurred in its previous lives, and the time when these debts come to fruition, when the harvest from the seeds which have been sown must be garnered.

However, the law of destiny is not a blind law, for it may be modified to a certain degree in proportion to the amount of willpower awakened and utilized by the Ego. "For be not deceived, God is not mocked. The mills of the gods grind exceedingly slow, but they grind exceedingly fine."

There are three factors which bring to us the mystic message of the stars -- the houses, the signs and the planets. Each house represents a department of life, the signs are divisions of the heavens which by their placement relative to the houses indicate our basic temperament and attitude towards life, and the planets are the messengers of God which by their motion through the houses and signs bring to us the opportunities for soul growth which we need for our individual development.

Think of the planets as representing the players in a play. The signs, then, would describe the role that each player has and how he expresses his character, the houses represent the various settings of the play and the angular relationships between the planets, the aspects, represent the plot of the play. Each planet has a characteristic energy. That energy can be expressed either positively or negatively. The way that energy is expressed is determined by the aspects of the other planets to that particular planet.

The horoscope shows tendencies only. It is a matter for you to determine how any planetary position will work itself out. That will be determined by the use you make of your own WILLPOWER.
