It is not known who or what created this simulation we perceive as reality, but as we precede through life everything that we were, what we are, and what we will eventually become is currently being uploaded to a collective consciousness. Our thoughts are just organic data that is transmitted into an unknown type of energy that branches out in fractal permutations through thought and mind, linking us all together as our fractal pathways cross.
Who or what is collecting this data? And for what purpose?
These fractal permutations cross and it is what links our subconscious minds to each other. Some pathways may never cross in our perceived life time and some bonds are stronger than others but all of this energy will eventually meet at some point flowing towards the center. Only then will we know the answers because we will all become the creator in a singularity of pure consciousness.
