I love this!!

//…we are living in a simulation that reuses objects, people, places, and events to keep the world generated.//

I cut and pasted this from Wikipedia a definition of simulation.
//Simulation is the imitation of the operation of a real-world process or system over time. The act of simulating something first requires that a model be developed; this model represents the key characteristics, behaviors and functions of the selected physical or abstract system or process.//
I recall several times in my life where people have ask me, in my younger days, if I’m someone they are acquainted with. After some conversation it is established I’m not but I looked just like or very similar to the person they’re referencing. I have (or had) “one of those faces”. I think you put your thoughts and Imagination out there Into, what Carl Jung identifies or names, the collective unconsciousness. ( I cut and pasted this from Wikipedia: He argued that the collective unconscious had profound influence on the lives of individuals, who lived out its symbols and clothed them in meaning through their experiences. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collective_unconscious )

I think There are an unknown number of anomalies present in the system.

I believe in many openings to the processes that can generate and regenerate regularly so that  new paths opens up for inspiration, creativity and Novelty.

The “one of a kind” that shows up in nature is interesting to me.
I am also interested in similar but not simulated phenomenon in psychological domains.
I’ve had first hand experiences, in my own life, of repeat abuse happening until there is resolution and a new pattern  established that is healthier for my well-being. I think addictions, obsessions and compulsions enter into one’s life & that one is controlled by such. One might be born into a family where the one’s blood relatives are addicts of one type or another either substance or behavior. That was my lot in life.

From what you’ve said it makes me think about pattern behaviors in relation to this concept of glitches. The next article I post will be addressing patterns that aren’t natural. Patterns, when seen, raise some secret alarm way back in the depths of our minds. You may like the next article since it deals more with signs of a simulation.

The third article will address what can only be described as similar psychological behaviors. It’s almost like your responses in this post are lined up with the upcoming content. You seem to be just one step ahead of it.

Maybe our behavior is simpler than we think, maybe we use the patterns from our environment (parents, friends, etc) as a default setting, whether the patterns harm or help. Maybe if we try to overcome what we are taught to be, we receive a new pattern. A pattern that can then be handed down or passed on to others, as the new default.

yes! I consider myself very lucky to have escaped from my family & community dysfunction. The deprogramming began early in life for me.
