Most evidence is this category relates to near-death experiences, or psychedelic experiences, as I described in an earlier post.
Yet for simulation theory to function, there must be an external means of monitoring and influencing human cognition at regular intervals.
This would not need to be continuous monitoring, but would function by regular uploads. This could be accomplished by sleep, in which the human brain rehearses its events, and consolidates and simplifies memories for more regular function.
If there were an upload taking place during sleep, or at other time periods, then data from EEG brainwave monitoring, PET, or fMRI data would show regular interference patterns which could communicate the information in packets which would allow for the reconstruction of the events and decisions of the individual. It may also show “downloads,” which would be patterns of information consistent with an increase or a change in information, also at regular intervals, also as demonstrated by studies during sleep or similar periods of unconsciousness.
This data transfer would be more effective, from a simulation perspective, to occur during unconsciousness. Direct downloads of information to or from the individual would be unwieldy, and not suit the purpose of the simulation to assess the worth of the individual.
