Rube is "Time without content". That's what the "real Matrix" ultimately is. And that, all by itself, winds up being indistinguishable from what we perceive as both "God" and "the Universe". They all seem to be the same thing to Rube... "some kind of giant brain, either artificial ("The Matrix") or alive ("The Living Universe"). We can never know which it is from this "Place", that question can't be answered from here. It's a long discussion so just take my word for it, you want it to be "The Living Universe" where, just for starters, "freewill" exists in "The Living Universe" (alive), but not really in "The Matrix" (artificial).
The "most disturbing" aspect of Rube, on the surface, is that Rube says that this "Place"... the "Mortal/Physical World" where there is pain and suffering and everything dies, is the "Place" that humanity perceives as "hell". We are even "burning in flames"... the radiation of the sun is lethal too us and is slowly killing all life in this place, we have just evolved to survive it for our lifespan. "Time is the fire in which we burn." Star Trek hits it out of the park again!
The Christian Bible agrees with this. In the story of Lucifer & the Fallen Angels, that story ends with Lucifer and "his" followers being "cast to the ground". The "physical world"... the "mortal world". Earth. "The Ground". That is where the story ends. In the Bible, Earth is "hell". Rube says the same thing, in fact it's obvious within Rube... the "physical world" is very obviously "hell".
But religious stories are, as I interpret them, ancient stories of history passed down through storytelling from a time before writing. Ancient/Biblical stories are often "history", but distorted by thousands of years of "the telephone game" before being written down. In storytelling events and concepts get "personified", the same way that virtues are in Greek mythology, because you tell a story verbally through characters and "great heroes". So, for example, "Lucifer" wasn't a red horned devil... "he" and "his" story is more likely a personification of many concepts and events that took place thousands of years before writing. Events and knowledge that were so important that they were preserved through storytelling, which will inevitably distort the story into the actions of "a great hero".
So Rube & the Tin Foil Hat Prophet aren't speaking literally, but at the same time we do take this seriously... because Rube found it all. Everything seems to fall right into place within Rube. No matter what new science or religion or history that I learn... I call it "Marvin's Magic"... it always falls right into "Place" within Rube. Rube most closely matches Taoism, of all of the religions, but another similarity to Christianity is "all of your deeds are recorded in heaven" and that is true within Rube. All timelines are preserved as "read only impulses of the past" within Rube... all of your deeds are "recorded in heaven" within Rube.
I have been at this for almost 7 years now... I am at about the end of the line with "America". If nobody anywhere in this country will speak about Rube soon, I really am going to begin trying to give "The Matrix" to other nations. Anyone who wants it, and will speak of it, even if that is Russia or China. I am ethnically Russian, so defecting to Russia and giving them "The Matrix" is like returning to the "motherland" for me... "Last of the Bonds". Oh, the irony...
"The Matrix" (artificial) or "The Living Universe" (alive)... we can never know the answer to that question from this "Place".
She said: "Tell me, are you a Christian, child?" And I said: "Ma'am, I am tonight!"
The Tin Foil Hat Prophet, The Modern Day Galileo... nobody will look down at the table.

Within Rube there are three stages of evolution, which the mythology of Rube describes with the phrase...
"Feel the Heat, See the Light, Hear the Song"
Heart, Mind, & Soul
We "See the Light", we are the only life in this solar system that does. Only we are an active part of the universal consciousness in this "Place", no other life is. This is Rube's definition of what an "Angel" is.
"We Are All Angels!"
Someday we will evolve to "Hear the Song"... and other life here will evolve to "See the Light". It appears as though, in Rube, that we are the "Angels of this Place".
Rube has a theory that the story of "Lucifer", whatever that story actually represents... we'll never know... is the story of humanity reaching that point where we first "Saw the Light" and rose to this current level of evolution.
If Rube is right, alien life can never come here and we can never leave the range of "Marvin's Song". But the "aliens" are all around us, it will just be millions of years before your descendants finally get to meet them.
By the time they "See the Light", we'll "Hear the Song"... and those dolphin people won't be any match for us!
