Reality is an information substrate between observer and observed, between actor and that which is acted upon. All interaction between entities involve the exchange of information through the medium of this substrate.

The act of modifying this substrate is termed ‘reality hacking’.

The first program most beginner programmers learn involves the display of the following string of text:

HELLO WORLD

The execution of this code is an important moment in any programmer’s life. It allows the communication of a greeting, addressed to the world as a whole, through the information medium of a computer language.

It is a declaration of existence, just as this first post is.

Hello, world.

Well we are skating down the fast slope…things are rushing past …
We aren’t talking about coding WordPress or anything else, we are discussing Reality .

Since I saw Reality Hacking called something like the art and science of manipulating the information substrate.
And then found this, all wound up with computers and coding instead of knowing and thinking:

Reality hacking is an intentional cultivation of neophilia.
It is a conscious love of uncertainty and randomness.
Reality hacking is hacking open the calcified knowledge structures that prevent the introduction of entropy, on the individual and the societal levels.

 

Perhaps one of my favorites is this: 
“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
― Albert Einstein
