Simulations of God: A Triadic Art Theater Piece
When my new book Simulations of Cod: The Science of Belief was in galley proof, our friends Burgess Meredith and Charles Lloyd set about narrating its "Prologue" to music (on a woodwind synthesizer).
Their dyadic performance inspired a group of us to create a group, The Simulations, in order to compose and perform a combination of four arts: narration, music, song and dance, within a similar context.
Toni's interest in combining the arts with other dimensions was long-standing, so with the help of many friends, including Mary Taylor, Garr Campbell, Don Harris, Russell Pyle and Myrna Garwyn, we constructed this piece.
We hope you enjoy our experiment in the four arts to present a fantasy of a possible Origin of Us.

Simulations of God
A Triadic Art Theater Piece Written by John C. Lilly, M.D.
In a sense, a simulation of God is a Creation by a Creature created by God. In another sense, a simulation of God is that which a group of humans consider to be the most important ideas, models, metaprograms that function "as if" God in the thinking of that particular group. This presentation is based upon the author's book Simulations of Cod: The Science of Belief, published by Simon and Schuster, New York, 1975.
In this dance, music, narration piece, it is hypothesized that the first humans were created as haploid females.5*'
The episode here presented is of two haploid females whose bodies evolved on this Planet by means of the normal evolutionary process. In addition, we present the theory that these bodies are not activated until a Being from the primordial Consciousness-without-an-object enters the body.
In this dance we open with a theory of the creation of the Beings, two of which are to inhabit the two haploid female bodies, thus activating them and creating life as we know it in them.
In the dance after their creation, the two haploid females live on this Planet, form the First Dyad, die and return to Consciousness-without-an-object in order to make further choices as to what bodies they will inhabit in their future lives.
After the dance episode, one or a number of the haploid females becomes a male through a cosmic ray intervention changing the X chromosome to a Y chromosome. This haploid male then mates with one of the haploid females and forms the first of the diploid humans. In this view, Adam and Eve were haploid male and haploid female who mated and gave rise to a series of children who were diploid. The
* A haploid female is one in which there is only half the number of chromosomes of the currently present human beings. Each female contains only one X chromosome instead of the two X chromosomes that females currently have. Currently such haploid females can be created by the process called parthenogenesis. For example, by heat shock of a rabbit ovary, a haploid female rabbit can be created anew. Such single-X female rabbits are sterile in the sense that they cannot reproduce from the sperm of a diploid male rabbit. Theoretically such a female could become a haploid male if a cosmic ray were to hit the X chromosome in exactly the right way, so as to turn the X chromosome into a Y chromosome. The haploid male, with a single Y chromosome, theoretically could make the haploid female pregnant, producing a diploid individual.
diploid humans were so different from the haploid ones that they were forced to leave the original Garden of Eden, which contained the haploid individuals.
The dance is divided into four separate sections.
The first section is entitled "Creation." Beings are created from the primordial Consciousness-without-an-object by the Starmaker. One Being chooses a form on a Planet in a solar system in a galaxy. She finds the haploid female Form, enters it, activates it and dances alone.
In the second episode, entitled "Me," she develops in narcissistic abandon.
In the third episode, entitled "My Energy-Your Energy," a second Being chooses to inhabit the haploid female form and develops her own uniqueness alone.
The first Being sees the second Being, the second Being sees the first Being and they become the first Female Dyad. Dyadic Union develops. The first Being-female dies.
The fourth episode is entitled "Unity and Resurrection."
The first Being-female weakens and dies in the midst of the Dyadic Union dance. The second female grieves, returns to her narcissistic aloneness. She weakens and dies.
Each Being then arises from her Earthly Form and begins her return to the primordial Consciousness-without-an-object.
The Dance of Transit from Earth Form to Unity with the Cosmos begins. Each Being thinks that she is still in the earthly female Form. There is a period of confusion until each determines that she is dead and arisen again. Each returned to the Consciousness of their Cosmic Connection and transit together, back to choose the choice of another Form elsewhere. This completes the first cycle of human life on earth.
It is assumed that after this, after a few millions of years, the haploids give rise to the diploids and the diploids kill off all of the haploids. Two thousand years ago one haploid developed by accident and preached to the diploids, trying to teach haploid philosophy to diploids and not succeeding.
We hope you will enjoy our little fantasy about one possible origin of us, the diploid human race.
Simulations of God
Introduction to a "Performance" on Earth
I have received a very peculiar and powerful invitation to help in a rather unfamiliar experiment. The invitation includes myself and each of you attending this performance. I have been asked to serve as an intermediary between each of you and the scientist who sent the invitation.
The invitation from the Scientist reads as follows:
"I am that which, on your planet, is called a Scientist. I am from a planet (call it 'A') 25,000 of your light years closer to Galactic Center. Our civilization once was similar to yours, approximately 2,000 of your years in the past. At the present time we are investigating some phenomena recently discovered on another planet (call it 'B') a number of light years beyond yours, toward the edge of the Galaxy. We have a theory that your species of human beings originated on Earth in the fashion that new Beings are being created on planet 'B'.
"We have some 'recordings' (as you would call them) of some of the creation events on planet B. In order to test our theory, we need to obtain your reactions to a 'performance' of these events, re-created for you from our recordings by special techniques (beyond your current capabilities).
"If a sufficient number of you 'resonate' in a particular manner to these events, we will then be able to determine whether or not your species of human beings was created in a similar fashion. If only a few or none of you 'resonate,' then your creation had another origin.
"We invite you to participate in this experiment to guide our future research."
(End of invitation.)
In the communication accompanying this invitation to us, were some more specific instructions to me and to you, as follows:
"A. During the 'performance' from the recordings, I will be able to use you in the performance 'as if' you are me. You, in the performance, will he me reading my notes as I watch the events. (How we do this is, at present, not yet a part of your science.)
B. Please advise each participant in this experiment to relax his/her beliefs accumulated during their life on Earth. I suggest the following:
1) The two Beings created in this 'performance' are not present-day humans: such primitive humans as these have not existed on your planet for the last two million years.
2) The two Beings may appear 'as if' like some of you because that is your belief: suspend that belief. (They are from a planet far away from you.)
3) The sounds you hear may be mistaken by you for that which you call 'music': suspend that belief also. (The sounds are vibrations that are a part of the creation process, and apparently are used to guide the two Beings.)
4) The behavior of these two Beings may confuse you in your belief that they are 'dancing': suspend that belief also. (They are undergoing reactions to what you call 'feelings' in response to their new form and the guiding 'vibrations.')
5) My 'voice/ articulated through you, is automatically translated from my language into yours. (We use human symbols for our own research purposes: the text means more than you think you will be saying.)
Ñ. I regret that (as yet) we cannot inform you who is doing this 'Creation,' nor why it is being done. In later communications we may be able to tell you 'who and why.' We are collecting the data to answer these questions, as well as the answer to how it is done."
The Scientist also sent some additional communication to be given to each of you after the "Performance."
introduction—to be read after music starts (shakuhachi flute)
For the purposes of this performance, it is assumed that Human Beings have two separate Origins. The first is the usual evolutionary account of the Origins of Organisms on the Planet Earth. These natural processes create bodies of various sorts. Among all of the animals that have evolved on Earth, the particular Human Animal has its own bodily evolution.
In this piece we develop the idea that there is a second origin of us as Humans. The origin of our Consciousness is a separate event.
During our gestation, a Consciousness enters the body rather than developing from the body. Here we symbolize this as a Superconscient Being from the Primordial Consciousness-without-an-object who chooses the Form that it takes.
In this episode, two Superconscient Beings take the Human Female Form. They find each other and form a Dyadic Union on earth. Each of them has forgotten her Cosmic Connection and her Origins.
("Space" music, synthesizer)
A. Creation of a Creature of God (NINA ON GROUND, ON BACK.)
1) Before the Beginning was the Void.
2) In the Void, God, the Starmaker, stirred from his/her Rest. His/her first creation was/is Primordial Consciousness.
3) Consciousness turned upon itself, creating Individual Selves, Beings endowed with Consciousness.
(NINA ON FLOOR, ON BACK.)
4) Consciousness turned upon itself again, creating Space-time-Matter at the Origin.
5) Matter and its Space-time poured out of the Origin creating the first Universe.
6) The new Beings saw the new Universe, each making a choice of its Form, of a Galaxy, of a Star, of a Solar System, of a Planet, or of an Organism.
(DANCE STARTS—music changes: rhythm and volume; crescendo to retard: "LANDING" crash; dies down.)
(wait. ROLL OVER. Music dies down.) Wait for new space to develop. (SILENCE).
7) One Being chose a Planet and an Organismic Form, the first Human (Flute starts) Female upon her Earth. (NINA RAISES HEAD.)
(NINA LOOKS UP.)
8) On Earth She emerged from Primordial Consciousness in her new Body newly created from Matter-Space-time.
9) She emerged alone, the first of her kind.
(ARMS CROSS SWINGING WITH THREE MAJOR STEPS.)
1) She experienced her new Body, found its Movements.
(Pause Narration: Count Slow "3.")
2) She evolved her Form in its Uniqueness.
(Change key and rhythm: Lyrical modulation. Instrumental change: bass guitar. Melodic: Nina theme begins development.)
(NINA, TURNING, STARTS, WHIRLS.)
3) She felt her Form, moved into its Self.
(Music and DANCE only.)
(Violin starts, joins flute and guitar.)
4) She expressed her Self; grew in narcissistic abandon.
5) Her Consciousness lost connection with the Cosmic Consciousness of her Origins.
6) Her Consciousness of the Growth of her Form, unique unto itself, grew uniquely.
(DANCE and music alone.)
(NINA FLOOR-FALL NEAR NARRATOR.)
7) She adored her body, its grace, its beauty, its orgasmic sense of life.
8) She loved her Self, her Body, her Earth.
(NINA GOES TO EARTH)
(MARSHA LINE WITH LITTLE DELAY)
C. My Energy—Your Energy (Overlap violin and flute.)
(Rhythm and Instrument Change)
(Guitar drops out—bass takes over.)
1) Nearby upon Earth, another Being chose the Human Female Form, grew into her unique Self, forgot her Origins, worshiped herself.
(MARSHA'S ENTRANCE AND SOLO.)
(MARSHA HEAD ROLLS.)
(NINA LOOKS TOWARD MARSHA.)
2) Startled the first Being saw the new Other; explored the Vision.
(DANCE and Music only for Marsha; NINA OBSERVES.)
(NINA R'ESUM'E—MARSHA STOPS AND OBSERVES. Nina theme of PART B.)
(Instrument change: Mutation of theme B: Nina's.)
(NINA WALKS UP TO MARSHA, MARSHA LOOKS AT NINA— Break in music.)
3) Suddenly the second Being found her Vision of the first Being and explored it.
(NINA TWIRLS AND MOVES STAGE RIGHT—MARSHA SLOWLY MOVES STAGE LEFT.)
(Instrument Change: Counterpoint Themes Â and C, Nina and Marsha.)
(MOVE APART; DANCING SEPARATELY.)
4) Separately, the two now Human Beings evolved, each alone.
5) Two alien Beings, each ecstatic, in love with its own Self, its own Body, its connection to Earth.
(NINA MIMICS MARSHA'S HEAD MOVEMENT. MUSIC LIGHTENS.)
(NINA AND MARSHA FACE EACH OTHER MOVING UP STAGE; MARSHA TEACHING NINA HEAD ROLLS AND JUMPS.)
6) Belief in the Other grew in each.
(Dyadic Theme (B and C) emerges and becomes dominant.)
(NINA AND MARSHA END OF JUMPS APPROACH EACH OTHER FOR THE SHIVA.)
7) Approaching, each Being saw her Self projected into the Other.
("SHIVA” MOVEMENTS GOING INTO TRAIN, THEN UNISON RHYTHM: 1 ... 2, 123. MOVEMENTS INCREASE IN INTENSITY UNTIL MARSHA ROLLS ONTO FLOOR. THEN NINA LEADS MARSHA IN CIRCULAR LEG EXTENSIONS, WHICH GET SMALLER AND SMALLER.)
8) Each danced around the Other, amazed, in wonder: the Ecstasy of Discovery.
(Music begins to change in mood and rhythm. As music slows WE FINALLY FACE EACH OTHER.)
(HEADS AND BACKS TOGETHER.)
9) The first Dyad was created, born of the Dyadic Union.
(HEAD AND BODY ROLL SEGMENT.)
(Music builds, dyadic theme emerges again.)
(HEAD TO HEAD, TURNING EACH ON OWN AXIS, TURNS AND ARM ROTATION. MOVES INTO THE DOUBLE X ADAGIO STANDING ON THE FLOOR, STANDING. DOUBLE WINDMILL BACK TO FRONT, PAIRED.)
10) Dyadic Union grew its own Uniqueness, a new melded Form of the first two Humans.
(THEN INTO HAND-HOLDING SPINS.)
11) Ecstasy in a New Form, tied to Earth, Earthly Response. (WHICH BREAK AWAY INTO INDIVIDUAL SPINS AND LEAPS: CROSSING LEAPS.)
(WAIST HOLD SPIN, SEPARATE.)
***(FIRST GONG STROKE)
(LAPSE INTO SLOWED MOTION: SUGGESTION OF COMING WEAKENING. NINA MOVES SLOWLY TOWARD MARSHA.)
D. Unity and Resurrection
(Dying flute: amelodic instrument change.)
(NINA WALKS TOWARD MARSHA, BENDS, HOLDS BELLY.)
1) In the Ecstatic, Earthly Union, the First Being's Form weakened.
(NINA EMBRACES MARSHA.)
(NINA COLLAPSES ONTO THE FLOOR. Music Decrescendo.) ***(SECOND GONG STROKE)
2) Nina died.
(Music changes—violin comes in.)
(MARSHA MOVES TO HER—BACKS AWAY.)
3) The Second Being, grieved at the loss of Dyadic Union, returned to narcissistic aloneness. Dances alone.
(Music stops droning. MARSHA CIRCLES UPSTAGE, THEN COMES DOWNSTAGE.)
(DRAMA BY "SELF.")
(MARSHA FALLS ON KNEES. Music weakens to a stop.)
4) She weakened—few seconds7 delay. FALLS TO FLOOR— and died.
***(THIRD GONG STROKE)
(STILLNESS. STILLNESS. FIVE SECONDS. Music resumes—complete thematic change.)
(Time warp.) (UNDULATION OF THE BEINGS' BODIES, IN SPASMS, ON FLOOR.)
5) Each Being arose from her Earthly Form, began her return to to the Primordial Consciousness.
(OFF-BALANCED, DISORIENTED MOVEMENTS.)
6) The Dance of Transit from Earth Form back to Unity with the Cosmos.
(TRANSITION INTO FRAGILE SLOWED WALK. Time warp mellows and begins to drift.)
(Music begins to pulse.)
(ARMS OUT, NINA APPROACHES MARSHA.)
7) First Being (Nina) :
"Am I dead?"
(MARSHA TURNS LOOKING AT HER OWN ARMS.)
The Second Being asked:
"Am I dead?"
(AURA OF FEELING, NINA TO MARSHA):
(Heavy bells, rhythmic gong.)
(MARSHA AND NINA AURA DANCE. FACE EACH OTHER, BREATHING, SPONTANEOUS IMPULSE MOVEMENTS.)
8) Ecstatic Dyad Dance of the Two brought the Return to Consciousness of the Cosmic Connection: the release into Oneness with all Creation.
(REACHING, WALKING DOWNSTAGE.)
9) Each went through transit together, back to choose the choice of another Form, elsewhere.
(SOARING POSITION, PULSING.)
(FREEZE—ARMS DOWN, HEADS UP.)
(Music after peak reverberates into infinity.)
10) Soaring to Fusion with Infinity.
Dr. John puts out the torch.
End of Performance epilogue (not narrated) :
In a sense a simulation of God is a creation by a creature created by God. The first two females are haploid, one-X chromosome. The first haploid male came from a cosmic ray transform X—»Y, thus the haploid male evolved from the haploid female. This dance is of the first two haploid females, who died and returned later to form the first male. Adam and Eve, the last haploid couple, formed the first diploid humans, as we know them (Cain, Abel and a series of females).
Here is the remainder of the communication from the Scientist from Planet "A," which he requested me to read to each of you:
"All of the foregoing events of this 'Performance' given on Earth have been re-recorded for our further research. We have recorded the 'performance' of my intermediary speaking for me, we have recorded each of your experiences individually, and we have rerecorded, simultaneously, our simulation of the original events as seen and experienced by each of you. We are recording your individual experience at the present time.
"We need additional data, and hope you will participate in our experiment for a brief time longer. We ask our intermediary to read to you some questions: we are recording each of you and your answers, silently, below your levels of awareness."
Here are the Scientist's questions (pause) :
1) Were you able to suspend your beliefs that this was a production of present-day humans?
2) Did you "resonate" to the "performance" with deep primordial feelings of an "unearthly" quality?
3) Did you feel a rising of an Ancient Memory of the Creation of your Species, of your own Self?
"We are deeply indebted to you for your participation and your excellent cooperation.
"As soon as we and you are able, we will resume our mutually satisfactory communication, in further cooperative efforts in Interplanetary Galactic Research."
As far as I can ascertain, the extraterrestrial Scientist has shut off his recording apparatus. We are now free to talk like human beings once again.

The creative image of myself never before included communicating feelings with the injunctive use of language. This never would have been attempted without John's encouragement and willingness to share his domain with me.
Thank you, John.
It is an unusual privilege to participate in a dyad that allows creative thinking/doing/feeling. Subjection of one's own ego to a supraself dyadic relationship is novel and exciting. Toni's own definitions of the unknown potential inherent in dyadic relations is in itself intriguing and creative. Her tolerance of the unusual, her earthside centering operations, her easy human relations, and her enthusiastic support of projects is heartwarming and exciting for me. Thank you, Antonietta.
With graciousness and humor, Jan di Stefano has typed, retyped, edited and participated in the lives creating this book. Steven Conger's humor and good vibrations have had a facilitative effect on the processes of living and writing this and the forthcoming book (The Deep Self) ; his tank constructions and schooling by those wanting tanks has kept us aware of other points of view, other philosophies outside our own world. Will Curtis's attention to new ideas and his artistic creations give an ambience unique in our lives.
We appreciate our relation with the author, agent, semanticist and critic John Brockman, whose appraisals and negotiations keep us in touch with the realities of book publishing. He reminds us that words in strings are void unless they can be injunctive, instructive and indicative of change.
Our editor Jonathan Dolger (through remaining himself in his own center) taught us much about the appropriate states of being for creating books; his sensitive diplomacy and willingness to change his mind furnished us with the wherewithal to rewrite where needed; he furnished us with time for creative reconsiderations at crucial points. He made it possible for two books (this one and Simulations of God: The Science of Belief) to become entities on their own and to create several new literary offspring currently embryonic.
Arthur and Pru Ceppos are our mentors and aides in the conception, gestation, birth and upbringing of each book from The Center of the Cyclone and The Human Biocomputer through the later two and several yet to be completed.
Through sharing their deep and thorough cross-cultural studies of Indian groups, John Lilly, Jr., and his wife Colette have furnished us with a basic understanding of and perspective on our own culture. Exposed to the rigors of living in many remote primitive areas, their dyad is a living example of successful adaptation inherent in the man-woman sharing of survival programs and creative work under a supraself dyadic regard for research into the inner-outer realities of hitherto obscure cultures.
Each of us has benefited in our understanding of and participation with the younger generation through the graceful, quietly effective and astonishing creations of Nina Carozza. Her acceptance and understanding of the mystical spiritual realms of human relationships is a source of delight and of a discipline of new order in our experience.
We are each/both indebted to Heinz and Mai Von Foerster in several respects. Their dyad and its relations with students is a model for long-term success in eliciting creativity in bright intelligent students from North and South America, Europe, and Africa. Longterm values generated in the research into the bases of cybernetics and its application to rational approaches to all levels of human endeavor (from cognitive-perceptual processes to interhuman communication and politics) is a continuing wellspring of inspiration to our dyad. Much of John's creativity has come as a result of his long-term associations with Heinz over many years. His incisive diplomatic and deep penetrations into the depths of human rationality, his ruthless and compassionate critiques give one courage to pursue the depths of one's own experience and its representations for others, unencumbered by the usual consensus judgments and consensus forbiddings. Heinz enjoys life to the full; Mai supports his work, his life, his students with gracious wisdom. Heinz said recently, in public, "There is no energy crisis; there is only a crisis in intelligence (and its application to the uses of energy sources and energy sinks)."

I use the term "Samadhi" in the sense of a general domain of states of being in which the levels of consciousness are more extended than the ones generated by the belief systems usually operative (see Chapter 18, Appendix 4) in the consensus reality. In this domain one's belief systems and the metabelief operator are creating/experiencing/operating in a nonordinary reality including e.r./i.r./e.t.r./N. (Cf. Table 1. Levels of Consciousness, in The Center of the Cyclone, pp. 148-149, Julian Press edition, and pp. 158-160 in the Bantam edition.) This domain includes 24, 12, 6 and 3 of Table 1 and includes the subdomains of the external reality (e.r.), the internal reality (i.r.), the extraterrestrial reality (e.t.r.) and the Network (N) of Creation. The belief systems are analyzed in my books Simulations of Cod: the Science of Belief; The Human Biocomputer; and The Center of the Cyclone
These are concrete block tanks, about two feet deep and six feet on a side, with water from the hot springs (at 105° F.) flowing through and out over the cliff to the sea below.

When I was a girl, there were always one or two boys that were different from the group. They had chemistry sets, read a lot and were intellectually inclined.
Gopi Krishna in his Kundalini: The Evolutionary Energy in Man, gives an autobiographical account of the unpleasant results of arousing Kundalini on one side of the body rather than both sides.
The goddess of destruction; the personification of the destroying principle in opposition to creation principle, Shiva; one of the two aspects of the energy of the Universe.
In Chile, Oscar's own definition of ego as "that which keeps one out of Satori," apparently was misinterpreted in New York by the teaching group. They mistook the symptoms of such anti-Satori programs (e.g. the "questioning" aspect of ego) for the disease and said to the students, "Thou shalt not fight my teachings," instead of analyzing anti-Satori programs.
t As is shown on page 168 of The Center of the Cyclone one must distinguish self, ego, and essence. The self makes the choices to either move from ego programming or to essence programming. Contrary to the psychoanalytical definition of ego, in the school in Chile ego was defined as any program that keeps the self out of essence programming. The training group in New York did not make these distinctions. They define ego as any expressed disagreement with their orders, thus leaving no room for self and its decisions; as if they and they alone were speaking from an essence position.

This calculation was computed as follows: light velocity is three hundred thousand kilometers per second. One can then calculate this as three times ten to the eighteenth-power angstrom units per second. (This is the value of c, the constant velocity of light.) In ten to the minus twenty-seventh-power seconds, the distance light travels is its velocity times the time interval. It can be shown that this distance is then three times ten to the minus ninth power angstrom units. The Planck length is ten to the minus thirty-third-power centimeters, which is ten to the minus twenty-fifth-power angstrom units. If we now divide the distance that the light travels in ten to the minus twenty-seventh-power seconds by the Planck length, we find that there are three times ten to the sixteenth Planck lengths that light travels in ten to the minus twenty-seventh seconds. A hydrogen nucleus in the hydrogen atom is ten to the minus fifth angstrom units.
