Hey, whoa, whoa,
Oh yeeeeeeeeeeeah!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
There's a face searching far, so far and wide.
There's a place where you dream you'd never find.

Hold on to what if?
Hold on to what if?

Whooooa, yeah!
Can you feel life tangle you up inside?
Yeah, now you're face down on the floor!
Oh!

But you can't save your sorrow,
You've paid in trade!
When you can't help but follow,
It puts you right back where you came.

Live and learn!
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow,
Live and learn!
From the works of yesterday.
Live and learn!
If you beg or if you borrow,
Live and learn!
You may never find your way.

Can you feel life movin' through your mind,
Ooh, looks like it came back for more!
Yeah yeah yeah yeah!

Can you feel time slippin' down your spine,
Ooooooh, You try and try to ignore!
Yeah!

But you can hardly swallow,
Your fears and pain.
When you can't help but follow,
It puts you right back where you came.

Live and learn!
Hanging on the edge of tomorrow,
Live and learn!
From the works of yesterday.
Live and learn!
If you beg or if you borrow,
Live and learn!
You may never find your way.

A thought: we've actually been considering the effects of emergent behavior as the results of software for a long time. Consider bugs that people end up relying on to the point Microsoft patches their kernel to exhibit the same buggy behavior. Consider the question "is this a bug or a feature?".

The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

The shaman is not merely a sick man, or a madman; he is a sick man who has healed himself. - Terence McKenna

You would say everything turned into a brilliant white light, but that wouldn’t begin to describe the color, texture, taste, sight, sound, thought, aether, and other senses you couldn’t even begin to describe unfold as you started to experience All as it truly is.

It was/is/will be the kind of thing the Buddha would stay silent for. You never really understood why until now.

You knew the truth. Everything was truly an illusion. It was all bricks. It was always bricks. It will always be bricks. It has always been bricks. There was never anything but bricks arranged in such fine arrangements that their interactions created the quantum fields that defined what you ended up interpreting as the grand experiment of reality in your frame of existence. The utter meaninglessness of it all was the most comforting thought that hit you.

It hit you like a ton of bricks, but each brick was made out of its own component ton of bricks, each made out of more bricks. There was no more reality. There was only bricks extending endlessly in spiral patterns of fractal beauty. You reached up a hand to gesture at the wild greater unknown, but you realized that it had been done 5 minutes from now.

A short story:

“So, let me get this”, the booming authoritative voice spoke out: “You had the chance to do whatever you wanted, to create whatever kind of reality and local universe you could, and you…spent it all hydrating horses?”
