How The Reality Simulation May Work – The Mandukya Upanishad

There are ancient writings that are thousands of years old that support the current scientific simulation theory. In this article, I’m going to discuss one of them, the Mandukya Upanishad. I will examine more of these ancient texts that support the idea of a simulated reality in other articles.

The Mandukya Upanishad (Sanskrit: माण्डूक्य उपनिषद्, Māṇḍūkya Upaniṣad) is the shortest of all the Upanishads, and is assigned to the Atharvaveda. It is just 12 verses long. Mandukya means “frog”, this is interesting because Heqet the Egyptian Goddess of fertility, is represented in the form of a frog.

The “frog in a well” saying about having a narrow vision of life is found in Sanskrit (“Kupa Manduka”, कुपमन्डुक), in Bengali, কুপমন্ডুক), in Vietnamese “Ếch ngồi đáy giếng coi trời bằng vung” (“Sitting at the bottom of wells, frogs think that the sky is as wide as the lid of the well”) The Chinese versions are “坐井觀天” (“sitting in the well, looking to the sky”) and “井底之蛙” (“a frog in a well”) from the Taoist classic Zhuangzi that has a frog living in an abandoned well, who talks about things big and small with the turtle of the Eastern Sea.The Malay version is “Bagai katak dibawah tempurung” (“Like a frog under a coconut shell”). In Chinese traditional culture, the frog represents the lunar yin, and the Frog spirit Ch’ing-Wa Sheng is associated with healing and good fortune in business, although a frog in a well is symbolic of a person lacking in understanding and vision.

The frog in many ancient cultures, is looked at as an enlightened animal because it transcends its environment. The frog starts off as a pollywog (a fish type creature) then grows legs, loses its tail and becomes a different animal that now walks on the earth. Similar to the lotus flower that grows up through the mud to the top of the lake and produces a waterproof flower.

The image of a frog can also be used as a sigil. “Pepe the Frog /pɛpeɪ/ a popular Internet meme. The green anthropomorphic frog with a frog-like face and a humanoid body is originally from a comic series by Matt Furie called Boy’s Club. It became an Internet meme when its popularity steadily grew across Myspace, Gaia Online and 4chan in 2008. By 2015, it had become one of the most popular memes used on 4chan.” (2)

It’s frog reference is explained in Kupamanduka/ Kupamanduka-nyaya (कूपमाण्डूक) a Sanskrit language expression. Literally meaning; “frog in a well”.  The phrase is used in relation to a person who foolishly considers his knowledge horizon as the limit of all human knowledge (much like a frog imagines his well to be the largest water body and cannot imagine an ocean that might be far more immense). (3)

The Mandukya Upanishad is similar to the Allegory of Plato’s Cave, another simulation supporting ancient text.

The Mandukya Upanishad uses a mediation known as the Vaisvanara Vidya, although, it is also known that the Mandukya Upanishad meditated upon alone is enough for enlightenment.

Here is some information on the Vaisvanara Vidya. Please do not attempt to do this mediation because it can make you become unbalanced and lose your bearing on reality. This mediation is only for those experienced with many years of this mediational work. I’m giving this reference as an example. 

“The basis of this meditation is explained in the Vidya (meditation), known as the Vaisvanara Vidya. This is the secret of the knowledge of the Universal Being, designated as Vaisvanara. Its simple form of understanding is a transference of human attributes to the Divine Existence, and vice versa. In this meditation, one contemplates the Cosmos as one’s Body. Just as, for example, when one contemplates one’s individual body, one simultaneously becomes conscious of the right eye, the left eye, the right hand, the left hand, the right leg, the left leg, the head, the heart, the stomach, and all the limbs of the body at one and the same time, and one does not regard the different limbs of the body as distinguished from one another in any manner, all limbs being only apparently different but really connected to a single personality, so in this meditation, the consciousness is to be transferred to the Universal Being. Instead of one contemplating oneself as the individual body, one contemplates oneself as the Universal Body. Instead of the right eye, there is the sun. Instead of the left eye, there is the moon. Instead of the feet, there is the earth. Instead of the head, there is the heaven, and so on. The limbs of the Cosmic Person are identified with cosmic elements, and vice versa, so that there is nothing in the cosmos which does not form an organic part of the Body of the Virat, or Vaisvanara. When you see the vast world before you, you behold a part of your own Body. When you look at the sun, you behold your own eye. When you look above into the heavens, you are seeing your own head. When you see all people moving about, you behold the various parts of your own personality. The vast wind is your breath. All your actions are cosmic movements. Anything that moves, does so on account of your movement. Your breath is the Cosmic Vital Force. Your intelligence is the Cosmic Intelligence. Your existence is Cosmic Existence. Your happiness is Cosmic Bliss. Though the Mandukya Upanishad gives certain symbolic instances of identification of limbs with the Cosmic Body, the meditator, in fact, can choose any symbol or symbols for such form of identification. The creation does not consist merely of the few parts that are mentioned in the Upanishad. There are many other things which may come to our minds when we contemplate. So, we can start our meditation with any set of forms that may occur to our minds. We may be sitting in our rooms, and the first things that attract our attention may be the objects spread out in the rooms. When we identify these objects with our Body, we will find that there are also objects outside these, in the rooms. And, likewise, we can slowly expand our consciousness to the whole whole earth and, then, beyond the earth, to the solar and stellar regions, so that, we reach as far as our minds can reach. Whatever our mind can think, becomes an object for the mind; and that object, again, should become a part of the meditator’s Body, cosmically. And, the moment the object that is conceived by the mind is identified with the Cosmic Body, the object ceases to agitate the mind anymore; because that object is not any more outside; it becomes a part of the Body of the meditator. When an object becomes a part of our own body, it no more annoys us because it is not an object at all. It is a subject. The object has become the Cosmic Subject, in the Vaisvanara meditation.

The Vidya has its origin, actually, in the Rig-Veda, in a famous Sukta, or hymn, called the Purusha-Sukta. The Purusha-Sukta of the Rig-Veda commences by saying that all the heads, all the eyes, and all the feet that we see in this world are the heads, eyes, and feet of the Virat-Purusha, or the Cosmic Being. With one head, the Virat nods in silence; with another face He smiles; with a third one, He frowns; in one form, He sits; in another form, He moves; in one form, He is near; in another form, He is distant. So, all the forms, whatever they be, and all the movements and actions, processes and relations, become parts of the Cosmic Body, with which the Consciousness should be identified simultaneously. When you think, you think all things at the same time, in all the ten directions; nay, in every way.”

The Chandogya Upanishad concludes this Vidya by saying that one who meditates in this manner on the Universal Personality of Oneself as the Vaisvanara, becomes the Source of sustenance for all beings.” ~ Swami Krishnananda

The Mandukya Upanishad describes AUM and the three stages of perceived reality, waking (jågrat), dreaming (svapna), and deep sleep (suṣupti), all of these states reside in the fourth state, Turiya or pure consciousness. Turiya can be thought of as the projector which creates the simulation of life and reality.

The Mandukya Upanishad on its own, is a brilliant scientific work from a mind that was way beyond what most people can even imagine today. If you’re interested in studying the Mandukya Upanishad and want to understand your simulated reality and how it works, as well as some excellent practice and enlightening advice. I highly recommend a great book;
