Amsterdam USA

( Testing the boundaries The Simulation )

2006 - 2007

In April 2006 Loid was invited by a friend to join him in Amsterdam for a weekend.

In a small hotel room Loid had an experience that didn't have a beginning or end. The experience didn't last for minutes or hours or days... it lasted FOREVER.


Sometimes even now and just for a moment it can be felt. Loid is still inside the Infinite Melting Hotel Room in Amsterdam... and all of reality is an illusion.


Nothing was ever the same after Amsterdam.

Loid was 34 years old and had never tried any psychedelic or mind altering drug in his life up to that point and rarely even drank alcohol. Nothing that he had read on the subject of psychedelics or The Psychedelic Experience before the trip to Amsterdam could have prepared him for what happened in that hotel room. He imagined that the mushrooms would make him see beautiful patterns and colors that would be pleasant and inspiring. Loid did not comprehend how completely unprepared he was for the approaching apocalyptic experience of Ego Death. He could not have known that the next 8 hours (Earth Time) would irreversibly and completely change his life forever!

Can almost see the hospital in The Village where he died in front of Loid.

It was only a moment for his boyfriend... he took no notice... but for Loid, the trauma would forever trap his soul in a very specific moment in time.

is the hypothesis that all of reality, including the Earth and the universe could be in fact an artificial simulation — for example by quantum computer simulation — indistinguishable from “true” reality. It could contain conscious minds which may or may not be fully aware that they are living inside a simulation. This is a proposed technology so advanced that it would seem realistic enough to convince its inhabitants the simulation was real.

This is quite different from the current, technologically achievable concept of virtual reality. Virtual reality is easily distinguished from the experience of actuality; participants are never in doubt about the nature of what they experience. Simulated reality, by contrast, would be hard or impossible to separate from "true" reality. There has been much debate over this topic, ranging from philosophical discourse to practical applications in computing.
