Katy Perry thinks the world is a video game.
The pop superstar studies simulation theory, which suggests that all of existence is a simulated reality, such as a computer simulation, an idea explored in the sci-fi film series The Matrix.
Katie, 37, said: “I have some weird thoughts that I entertain. I’m into modeling theory, I love NPCs. For example, my brother is a big gamer, he’s into Crypto and he’s been watching the X Games of video games and it was literally video games on their computers with their fancy chairs playing fifa soccer and there was a full stadium watching these people play, these were their avatars. isn’t this happening to us? isn’t someone potentially playing with us? » And we figure out how to play another game? Then the Metaverse is the next dimension of our reality? I don’t know.
“NPC stands for non-playable characters, people who don’t take an active part in life. I think that’s maybe a sociopathic way of explaining it, but on a more esoteric spiritual level, it’s people who lack consciousness awareness.
“I mean, we’re all just stars attached to the body.
“And I don’t even smoke weed! I’m not even allowed to smoke feed. I know it sounds like I’m microdosing right now. Trying to process any of that information is pretty intense.”
Cathy was raised as a Pentecostal Christian by her pastor parents, but now she does not believe in organized religion and, in addition to her interest in modeling theory, she has also adopted some of her fiance Orlando Bloom’s Buddhist beliefs.
The ‘Roar’ singer, who has two-year-old daughter Daisy Dove with the British actor, told the SmartLess podcast: ‘I grew up in a very Christian home but they call it born-again, it’s very emotional and new wave, it’s not like Catholic, she’s pretty radical Christian. I grew up listening to gospel and Christian music, and there’s a whole world of Christian music that has its own kind of Grammy, that’s all.
“I don’t believe in the way I was brought up. Organized religion is not necessarily for me, I’m a big seeker. Orlando is a devout Buddhist and he basically chants every morning. So I follow a little bit more of his philosophy or Buddhist philosophy. I actually just looking for all of it. From mysticism to math and geometry to physics, a lot of science. I’m sure there will be something in the end.”
