( The Real World Outside of the Simulation )

2022 - Present

It was 2022 and the dawn of the age of war.

Dating apps by location make dating incredibly fast to end so quickly after years of random chats. So many options for distractions to fill the void of loosing his life, everyone and everything. Instead having it all upside down and inside out living in Loid's mom's house in the guest room with Matt and Brad in the master bedroom. Not as awkward or as unpleasant as you might be imagining.

Within 6 months of his sobriety Loid has his first art exhibition for his Symmetrical Paintings project.



First Exhibition April 2022

Symmetrical Paintings

Fair Trade Cafe

Phoenix, Arizona

When the Spring 2020 Coronavirus lock downs and quarantine began Loid purchased the iPad Pro, Apple Pencil and the painting app ProCreate. With those tools he invented a new form of Art.


After a month of frustration at being unable to draw or paint anything that he liked, Loid found ProCreate's radial symmetry guide. The symmetry guide is a tool that is present in every painting and drawing program that has ever existed. That is when he stopped TRYING to make art and instead began to slowly and deliberately PULL infinitely random abstract art into this world from some other dimension where they seemed to have already existed. As if these paintings are discovered on psychedelic archeological expeditions somewhere beyond.

All these Symmetrical Paintings began without intentionality as random abstract scribbles made while in a trance like state trying to deal with and survive a period in modern history that at times felt like the end of the world.

... and if you want to get to know me you'll need to make the effort to comprehend this bit down below and sprinkled around this website foreshadowing...


... the future...



It could contain conscious minds which may or may not be fully aware that they are living inside a simulation

The Technological Singularity www.loidlarson.com


is the hypothesis of the invention of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). AGI would be capable of recursive self-improvement, leading to the rapid emergence of Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). This will abruptly trigger a runaway feedback loop of technological breakthroughs resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization... the limits of which are unknown. Technological progress will become so rapid that it makes the future after the Singularity qualitatively different and impossible to predict due to an inability of human beings to imagine the intentions or capabilities of superintelligent entities.
