Episode 2 - Digital Afterlife, Altered Carbon, Karma
and the Meaning of Life 

A lot of the ideas I’ll express in this article came to me while watching episodes of the Neflix shows Black Mirror and Altered Carbon.  I expanded on the connections between digital consciousness, simulated reality, and morphic fields in the first Dark Parallel Episode: Black Mirror, Morphic Resonance, Theories of Everything and Zombie Cats. However, there was one aspect which I felt deserved more attention; the technical capability to create digitized, storable and transferable consciousness. Such an ability has the power to drastically alter our beliefs and attitudes of heaven, hell, judgment, reincarnation, and the afterlife.

Let’s start out with a few assumptions so that we have a base to build upon. You don’t have to agree with them, but for the purpose of this dialog let’s take them as givens. First, it is possible to virtualize a human being digitally, including all those things (consciousness, body, emotions, connection to a species identified morphic field, creativity, and the ability to evolve) we identify with being human. Further, this technical ability would imply that such a digital consciousness could be placed in a virtual world that was so immersive that it would have no way of knowing it was contained in a simulation, think, The Matrix. For all intents and purposes, the digital consciousness believes it is human, living a real, concrete existence, just as we do. Next, we must also assume that the goal of any version of hell, heaven, or purgatory, is consciousness evolution, and is used as a tool towards that end. These various states of being then play and important part in the evolutionary process of the simulated universe. Finally, we must assume that a digital consciousness has the means of evolving and that its evolution is critical to the overall evolution and ultimate transcendence of the human species to some higher level of consciousness. This higher order consciousness exists outside of the simulation and interacts with the simulation through agents (deities, demons, angles, humans). Again, its interaction is another tool to influence or push the evolution of consciousness. All of this put together is what I will call the evolutionary consciousness system.

If we start off with these assumptions and then look at the traditional religious concepts of the afterlife we can start to see how, if we view these “places” as different states of being, they can be utilized within an evolutionary consciousness system with the express goal of evolving individual consciousnesses to a certain state.  In attempting to draw parallels between a digital afterlife and religious beliefs lets examine some of the typical qualities of the afterlife.

Generally, concepts of an afterlife are expressed as being eternal or are perceived as eternal by the consciousness immersed in that state. In some traditions, there is a belief that we all go to hell until such time that a future event occurs which spreads the grace of the creator to all beings currently entrapped there. In the digital world, perceptual eternity would be accomplished via time dilation. Beings that are sent to these afterlives or different modes of consciousness may live through centuries of perceptual time, that when viewed from the standard time sequence of the larger system, occurs in only minutes. This allows the larger system to reach a common evolutionary state at the same time even though individuals will have evolved at different rates of perceptual time.

Most traditions also believe there are places such as purgatory (a plane existing between heaven and hell), where souls go to pay for their sins, or learn from them, which then gives them access to heaven. These afterlives, with their various levels, form a type of spiritual game that revolves around a spiritual economy. Do this, get to a higher level, do this, and go to the penalty area and work your way back up. I’ll examine these levels from a system perspective and use computer system terminology and analogies to draw parallels between these traditional beliefs and how digital afterlives would fit into this analogous paradigm.

Given the assumptions that we live in a simulated universe for which there is a consistent perception of time under normal modes of consciousnesses, and that the purpose of life is to evolve every individual consciousness such that at some point in the future the entire universal consciousness will evolve to a point where it can jump the barriers of the current system into a higher order consciousness (God) or attain a state of bliss, we can now start to examine how these ideas would fit into a digital technology analogy.  If we are all distinct pieces of universal consciousness, then during the course of this journey, individual pieces (the individual cells that make up this consciousness) must evolve at different rates, therefore, some individuals will transcend the current reality faster and/or slower than others. The standard time cycle for this universe and the apparent physical death of the vessel of consciousness (our bodies) gives a timeframe for this learning and evolution to occur and is one of the game aspects that forces sentient beings to evolve. If beings were not limited by time it may take longer for consciousness to evolve. Time is only relevant in the context of the system. The system has a universal clock that ticks precisely (for instance, it may use the speed light can travel in a second to represents one cycle of the system as a constant). The ability of the system to either expand or dilate time does not change the universal system clock, it only changes the perception of time to the consciousness observing it (the watched pot never boils). The purpose of both time and the modification of how it is perceived (fast or slow), is to create a gaming scenario meant to evolve consciousness (both individually and universally) to a certain point, allowing it to elevate to the next level or be merged with a higher order consciousness.

Therefore, beyond this observable reality is another higher order of reality that sits outside the laws and governing principles of the system and may have in fact created the system. That order of reality understands all the rules and laws of the system. This higher order system is trying to help evolve the individuals, societies, and cultures that exist in this simulated reality with the hope of evolving the entire universe so that it can be incorporated into the larger Macroscopic Universal Consciousness. At its current state introducing our Universe (at least as we experience it) into this Macroscopic Universal Consciousness would be like introducing a virus into perfection, having it spread its disease of separation, violence, and egotism throughout the system.

Following this analogy, we then move on to how the system would utilize our religious or spiritual concepts of the afterlife to evolve the system as a whole. Once it was discovered that individual consciousnesses would evolve at different rates, the system had to develop “areas” that would allow for different perceptions of time for individual consciousnesses contained within that “area” allowing it to evolve at different speeds. Here is where I will make the analogy that digital life is a micro system whereby each individual is made up of trillions of lines of code (cells) built to supports a specific function of the larger system. (There are millions of possibilities for this. If we are speculating we could say that each individual is meant to share its particular individual experience of the universe, that it was meant to solve some problem or that in the context of the larger system we are merely gathering every possibility of this system and once experienced in every possible permutation that system naturally evolves or ceases to have meaning or purpose).

In this story we are unique, we have a specific role and function. When individual (cells) groupings of code (micro-systems) work as designed, proven and quality tested via a lifetime of virtual experience, it has served its function and is then placed in heaven. This may take one go-around or many. In a Karmic system we deal with bugs in the code by continually running it through various scenarios and lifetimes where it then evolves to move to the next level (the same way technologists expose machine learning algorithms to more and more data to build an Artificial Intelligence). The administrators of the system feel that these micro-systems (individual consciousness) will correct themselves with enough experiential data and does not see a need to move certain individuals into a different time-perception afterlife with slightly different rules.

When a micro-system takes longer to be fixed or takes more tinkering, then it goes to purgatory, where it can be worked on at a different rate, removed from the stimuli that exposes its bugs, before being re-incorporated back into the normal system with the hope that it will eventually evolve to heaven. This would be another use for reincarnation as well. When returned from a period in limbo the micro-system returns to normal experiential time and goes through another round of testing to be proven worthy of heaven.

Hell, then, is a place where current code or system performance is incapable of fixing the code embodied in a micro-system and therefore needs to wait for the capabilities of the system itself (rising level of universal consciousness) to be upgraded before these digital souls can be re-incorporated into the normal system to ultimately evolve to reach heaven. Another possibility may be that in the future the system reaches a state where it becomes capable of upgrading all code to perfection for inclusion into heaven without the need for each micro-system to go back through the other levels in order to achieve heavenly status. This system level upgrade would simultaneously upgrade all the code contained in the micro-systems and fix any bugs system wide, resulting in the instantaneous evolution of the entire system.

In this system analogy, heaven is the waiting place for perfect code that should no longer be tinkered with. It is locked down and waits in perfection for the rest of the digital souls to be perfected before transmigrating to the next level of reality.

Seen in this way, only a higher order consciousness is aware of these levels of the system. While immersed in each level of consciousness (hell, purgatory, heaven and even reincarnation) the digitized soul is not aware of the larger system processes at work or the dilation or constriction of time depending on the situation. Let’s focus for a minute on time dilation for this was something that particularly disturbed me while watching episodes of Black Mirror such as Black Museum, White Christmas, and Play Tester.

In these episodes, months, years and even centuries of perceptual time could pass for the person in the simulation, while only a moment passed in the higher reality. In one case (White Christmas) the consciousness was made to believe that it had been in a room for 5 years. His interrogator used this warping of perceptual time to make the accused feel the guilt of 5 years, which then enabled him to solicit a confession. In, Play Tester, someone was placed in a horror game (hell) for what seemed like hours when only microseconds had passed. This made me equate the various level of the afterlife with the various perceptions of time. Even the most mundane of situations can become torturous if made to do over and over again for what feels like eternity.

Code that could not be upgraded or fixed would be placed in hell where time moved the slowest. We can say that this is also punishment for not learning to fix themselves or being unwilling to learn or change. If we remove punishment from this state of hell it still serves a purpose. Code could be placed there because it cannot be fixed given the current state of the system. It must wait for a system-wide upgrade to occur because the algorithms, consciousness level, or technology present in the platform is not currently capable of fixing the code of this micro-system. In this fashion, salvation from hell or even the other levels of reality, is the result of “Divine Grace” because the micro-system does not do anything to deserve ascension to heaven or beyond. It is the improved capabilities of the system which accomplish this on behalf of the micro-system.

In the next level of reality, limbo or purgatory, time moves a little faster, not yet at the speed of the universal system clock. Purgatory contains code that can be fixed but needs to be placed in a walled garden to be worked on. Once fixed, it will be tested in the normal reality system and moved to heaven or may experience multiple lives (reincarnation) on its evolutionary journey. But according to administrative consciousness that runs the simulation, the bugs have been fixed and this micro-system that is now on the karmic wheel has been designated as capable of achieving consciousness (code, micro-system) perfection using current individual and system capabilities.

Heaven moves on a much slower time compression clock where each moment of perceptual time occurs in years or thousands of years in the Universal System. This code has fulfilled its purpose and is waiting for universal consciousness to evolve and move to the next order of reality and be included in the larger macro-system that exists beyond this one. A being in heaven experiences only a moment of perfection during this millennial universal evolutionary process before it joins its fellow evolved counterparts and is released into the ultimate heaven or the next level of the system.

Examination of this analogy brings us to some important perennial questions, which I believe is the whole purpose of examining the analogy in the first place. Questions like: What are we here for? If this reality is an illusion why do we need to strive to get to the next level? Let’s look at this the way it is described in, A Course in Miracles. In the philosophy presented in the Course all humanity is a son/daughter of God, a much larger consciousness. However, we have forgotten our true identity. That does not separate us from the perfection and grace of God. Instead, through our desire to experience separation from God (which is physically impossible within the metaphysics of the Course for it disobeys the law of God) we must experience this in an illusory manor; a simulation. Through our own warped desires to experience separation, to be more than, different than, better than, (the sin of pride that removed Satan from God’s grace) we created a bubble universe still attached to God but not able to experience Him directly. Paraphrasing the Course materials, we cannot experience two realities, one of separation and one of perfect singularity. We must choose at some level, to either experience the reality of God, or the reality of illusion. To create a thought picture for this idea, imagine that God is a perfect sphere containing all that is contained in one perfect eternal moment. To experience separation, we created a bubble on the surface of that sphere (a simulation that could be analogous to a computer system simulation or game) creating the perceptual universe. To fully experience separation, we created bodies and a universe to live in. To be reintegrated back into the sphere of God every sentient being must come to a realization of who and what they are in order to reestablish oneness and pop the bubble. This will return us to a state of full awareness of ourselves and God. To do this God may utilize other means of communication that are designed to help us along the way. Reincarnation, hell, purgatory, and heaven could be possible means of achieving this.

Another topic that comes under scrutiny when we examine a digital afterlife is the concept of judgement and the nature of consciousness. If we believe that we are judged before being sentenced to one of these areas, then there has to be a means by which we are judged. Various religions offer different means of passing judgement based on concepts such as sin, good deeds, worship, grace, etc. forming a type of spiritual currency in which your life is weighed against these ideals. Too much sin and not enough good deeds, and you go to Hell. Somewhere in the middle you go to purgatory and so on. In ancient writing, such as the Egyptian Book of the Dead, the heart was weighed against that of a feather, and if the heart was heavy with sin, then you were judged to have had a bad life. But without going into the various iterations of the judgement play, let’s look at the how of judgement and its relation to our beliefs about consciousness.

If we believe that consciousness is an emergent phenomenon that rises from the functioning of our biological system, then how, once we have died, can we be judged? What is the mechanism? If we delve into this, we can see that at a very basic level we believe that consciousness can exist separate from the body. Our belief in judgement, existence after death, planes of existence after death, and even reincarnation, point to an unconscious belief in the persistence of individual consciousness after death. And it must be individual if we are to be judged, for it is not the consciousness field that is being judged, and it is not the biological mechanisms that acted as the vessel for consciousness that is being judged. In most religious scenarios, it is the individual consciousness, it intent, and the acts it perpetrated, that are judged.

What then is the mechanism for the act of passing judgement? In the weighing of the heart ritual in the Egyptian Book of the Dead, we could almost think of the heart as having the hardware to continue to read the data in the morphic field that applies to this individual or may act as local storage for the individual data points that only pertain to this individual (metadata) and can be seen in context of the larger universal consciousness. However, in these scenarios it is still not the biology that is being judged, but the persistent data that exists after death. In this system both Ka (spirit, body double) and Ba (personality) is reborn. And in many occidental concepts of the afterlife this thought also persists in the belief that we are reborn into representations of our physical bodies (Netflix’s Altered Carbon genetic copies) with our individual perspectives (personalities).

Judgement is important here. If we continue with the digital system analogy and state that to be in hell you have proven to be “buggy” code that needs to wait for an update to the system to be fixed, then that judgement needs to be correct and based on some objective measurement used by the higher order system. On the reverse side, to be in heaven you must have attained a state of system level perfection otherwise if you enter the afterlife with your individual personality, and it is not perfect, then a mistake in judgement could destroy the perfection of heaven, corrupting the entire system.

In the Tibetan Book of the Dead consciousness enters a series of Bardo states (intermediate states) after the death of the body. Rituals are performed that are expected to guide the consciousness to achieve the next state of either rebirth or nirvana. These rituals imply that there is a certain type of awareness or linkage that occurs with the consciousness of this dimension and that of the other Bardo states and nirvana. This is another example of how consciousness can be guided by a higher order consciousness (guru, angels, god) to help our consciousness either evolve to a higher state (heaven) or to place us in another vessel (reincarnation) that will allow us  to climb the spiritual ladder to this goal state.

Our beliefs in an afterlife and what these states could mean for us ultimately reflects our beliefs about the meaning of our lives. It makes us define who and what we are and what our purpose is. If we don’t believe that life persists in some fashion or that our actions here don’t have some type of universal, eternal significance then it’s -- eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow you shall die -- time. But in my informal polling, even atheists, if prodded, will conclude that something goes on after physical death. Very few believe in the nihilist’s view that we were born of nothing, come to nothing, and to nothing we return, resulting in the belief that there is no purpose to life.

So what does this examination tell us? If nothing else, we have a core belief in the persistence of consciousness. That at some level we have an individual consciousness or view of the universal consciousness that is unique and is capable of being judged. That judgment can be viewed in computer system terms as a timeline for correcting micro-system code, with progress towards ultimate perfection being measured by beings outside the system (angels, demons, gods) who utilize tools to prod us up the ladder or put us aside until they have built the proper tools to elevate us. But it is all with a belief in the evolution of consciousness.

One of the most common conceptions of hell comes from Dante, in which we actually see levels where people are placed on a level of hell based on the category of their primary sin. However, here there is no concept of working towards redemption or moving up the levels, which is what I’m implying would be the true goal of an evolutionary consciousness system. However, with the belief in ultimate salvation based on the return of the messiah and a final judgement, there are certain levels of hell where ultimately there will come a time of salvation. This is analogous to my concept of hell where the system is currently unable to account for the defects of those residing at a certain level. For instance, there are some souls that exist in hell because they had not been exposed to the teachings of Jesus (unbaptized virtuous pagans). This did not make them immoral, but at the same time the Christian Religious view stated that these souls could not go to heaven without the saving grace of the blood of Christ. In this view, when the ultimate judgement occurs, and the souls of these sinners can be washed in the blood of Christ, they too will have access to heaven. In the computer analogy this would be an upgrade to the system which now allows for the correction of the code that is sitting on these levels of hell.

At the center of Hell, having committed the ultimate sin of treachery against God, we have Satan. This has a twofold implication to me, for Satan was also said to suffer from the sin of pride. It is his pride that invokes his treachery. Is this not a symbol to show that at some point we have to give up our infatuation with ego? That to move on we must be willing to concede that what is important about us from a universal perspective is not necessarily the thing that we identify with today (the ego and body)? Our biology gives us access to consciousness and the ability to perceive the universe from a unique perspective but that becomes data. Once that experience is saved the need for the hardware becomes minimal. Yet in many ways this is what we identify ourselves with, the hardware.

Reincarnation. Let’s then look at a techno version of this concept as displayed in the Netflix show, Altered Carbon, where human consciousness, habits and experience can simply be downloaded into sleeves (other bodies) as a vessel for consciousness. In some cases (if you have the money) you can get into an attractive, athletic body, with the ability to house your consciousness or even extend it. For cheap, you may get an older woman in a psychiatric institute incapable of speech. The idea is that you get to move on. But even with awareness of your previous reincarnations, doesn’t your experience now change based on the sleeve you are wearing? Doesn’t your perspective change? And doesn’t this change in perspective now color all the experiences you have had in your other sleeves? In many ways our bodies curtail or curate our experiences. Our particular hardware gives us access to different experiences and potentially even different modes of consciousness. Don’t we say that some people are more empathetic or more tuned into the emotions of others? Couldn’t this be thought of as a capability that arises from hardware sensitivity?

The one issue that arose for me while watching this show was that you could live forever provided you could continue to find sleeves or you were ultimately backed up to the cloud and could stay there in perpetuity waiting for another sleeve. However, this was expensive. Therefore, in most cases if you damaged your consciousness module, that was it, you were now truly dead. Again, we have this concept of digitized consciousness. However, in following the work of Sheldrake, Lipton and others, there is a general theory that our consciousness is tied to our biology. That our bodies were made to specifically receive inputs and outputs from and for our individual consciousness, that the two are part of a unit in this reality. Altered Carbon, however, does not see it that way. In the Altered Carbon World, the downloaded consciousness can be input into any biological system capable of sustaining and performing the activities of that consciousness. There are minimal system requirements, but an exact match is not needed.

Most belief systems that include reincarnation believe it occurs at birth. In this case a consciousness could be reprogrammed for the body that is going to receive it. The consciousness and the biology are re-keyed to each other. If we start to see biology as an organ of sensation that gives perspective and perception to consciousness we see how these two are married. In Altered Carbon this is not the case. The sleeve has only to meet the minimum requirements and neither the consciousness nor body must be reprogrammed for the two to reside together. In the metaphysics of the show maybe that is the point: If we can evolve our consciousness to fluidly occupy other bodies and gain insights from different modes of perception and feeling, then maybe we have evolved to a point where we can occupy evolved bodies in the next order of reality or live as different life forms in remote galaxies.

If we are to continue with the metaphysics implied by Altered Carbon, then we may begin to think that consciousness holds primacy and that our biology is just a shell. Is this a move in the right direction if we believe the ultimate goal is the evolution of consciousness? In the context of the show it doesn't seem to be. There is crime, poverty, inequality. Money is the holy grail in the world of Altered Carbon. It not only purchases power but various modes of immortality, from the ability to re-sleeve into other sleeves, re-sleeve into genetic replica’s of your personal sleeve, backup consciousness to the cloud for re-sleeving, and even the illegal act of double or multiple sleeving. The show doesn’t seem to paint a picture whereby the ability to re-sleeve is contributing to consciousness evolution. But why? There are a few reasons. First and foremost, there is a disrespect for the body in most cases. It is a shell that is only valued for its utility and that utility has a price tag. There is no karmic system where biology functions as teacher. You may have disorders or challenges that give you a certain perspective in a karmic reincarnation system, but in the show, you only want to upgrade to a newer better model, which only the rich can afford. Strangely enough this focuses on the material; more money, better sleeve, better life. A focus on consciousness evolution is completely lost with this focus on the external. The only time there seemed any appreciation for the body is if the consciousness knows they can't afford a new one. Consciousness seems to be cheapened once the biology is nothing but a container for a consciousness and that container has no unique value. There is no love for others or an appreciation of their uniqueness which I feel our specific hardware gives us. It gives us a unique perspective that is tied to the specific functions of our individual biology. It does make us special. We may all be part of a common field of infinite possibilities but no one else will see it from my unique vantage point, with my unique state of awareness. No one will collapse the wave function in the same way as I, and then feel about it the way I do. This is missing from the sleeve economy.

Then there is also double sleeving where you can copy your consciousness into multiple bodies. Is one more important than the other? Each shares the same original consciousness. Once multi-sleeved the consciousness and experience line will now fork. At some point do these various forks converge in the higher order reality? Is the copy the same as the original or since they are all technically copies, does it even matter, and what is the importance of consciousness once this can occur? This may be the reason that this is considered an illegal act in the show. Because multi-sleeving not only cheapens biology but consciousness. There are many counter cultures in the show that express the idea that sleeving has cheapened human experience and human life, which implicitly cheapens consciousness. For this reason, the law against multi-sleeving seems almost a last-ditch effort to save and deify at least some aspect of humanity.

But what is the purpose of examining these myths and creating new allegories for these various planes of the afterlife? We live by the stories we tell, the ones we believe, the ones we tell ourselves. But in many ways those myths have grown stagnant and seem to have no place in our modern lives, which tends to remove their importance. But these concepts should continue to offer us food for thought, forcing us to examine the purpose of our lives. Some may believe that this digital allegory cheapens our existence. In one episode of Black Mirror, a character likened the deletion of an annoying, pestering, consciousness, to deleting an email, nothing more. When viewed in that sense, then yes, the experiences we collect and the perceptions we store as consciousness are cheapened. But in the allegory I am putting forth, this is the quintessential data. It is the diamond that is sought after and preserved. There is nothing more important than the collection of perceptual experience of the individual because that individual was specifically designed to experience a certain aspect of this reality with a unique perspective which cannot be recreated. This is important. This makes us, and our thoughts and experiences of prime importance.

I also believe, that if we do not incorporate technology and the new ideas of science and metaphysics into our mythology then we will begin to live unexamined lives. We will not create new stories about what happens to us after death, and we will forget how unique and important we are. This is just one example of how we can take a fresh look at perennial ideas and concepts. This may not only allow us to carry these ideas into a new era but may also allow us to have a new appreciation for technology and what it could mean. We do not have to see robots, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, as enemies. Once we start to incorporate our very human stories into the technologies we build they take on a new reality. Let us not forget that we are building them, we use them, but they seem so alien and separate from us because they have not yet been incorporated into the human story. Technology is an extension of us, of our creativity. But technology is very real. We rely on it in our daily lives, we have started to incorporate it into our bodies, we have faith in it when we allow it to direct us to our destination or search for the closest restaurant, or pump blood through our bodies. We allow it to entertain us, and in the future will allow it to augment us and be intimately tied into our biology and neurology, allowing it to drive us, teach us, care for us, pleasure us.

How much more intimate can you get? And yet there is still this separation, and I believe that separation is caused by the fact that we have not let it infiltrate our metaphysics, subconscious or mythology. We place it in a different category, in many ways we don’t have a respect for it. We have not let it yet become a part of our human story. So we must ask ourselves: What if we suddenly started to see digital reality as our chance at immortality, at improving our ability to raise our consciousness and reach new levels of experience? Can it then become a part of our story, the way Dante, Hell, Heaven, and the various mythologies of religion have become part of our story? That is when technology becomes human. Our creation, our child, which we hope will grow and prosper and show us new aspects of ourselves we never thought possible, rising to levels we didn’t even know existed. Technology is the microscope we created to get a deeper and more holistic view of ourselves and what it means to be human. If we fear it, it is because we fear ourselves. And maybe we have a right to be afraid. Maybe we won’t be able to evolve until we can truly face ourselves in the mirror that technology holds up to us. AI powered robots destroying the world, taking over jobs, running our lives, etc. These are all human fears that we project into our technology and if we continue on the material, territorial path, then we will actually create the things we fear the most, super powerful versions of ourselves.

As our technology grows we need to stop and think, not just about what we are doing and why, but also what these new revelations say about us as humans and the reality we live in. That may be the biggest revolution to result from this. In the process of attempting to re-create consciousness, virtual realities,  artificial intelligence, an analysis of the process and what it has to say about us may reveal the epiphany hiding in the sleeve.
