The Game of Life - Game on!

Since my child hood I’ve been fascinated by computers and I spent a lot of time at a friends house who had transformed a spare room to one big gaming utopia. It had the newest hardware and the coolest games, the room was filled with servers, game consoles and computer screens: I was thrilled!

My biggest fascination was Adventure Games. I also got a kick out of racing games in which the technique, the skills and the response time was essential and I turned it into a sport to find the fastest routes, finetuning my techniques, becoming even faster and more efficient: what a rush!

Life is but an adventure
Violent shooter games barely caught my attention. But the Adventure Games were my all time favorite. I could loose myself in these games for hours, like in Myst and its sequel Riven. The combination of the stunning graphics, the atmosphere, the complexity of the assignments and the exploration of these mysterious worlds….

Looking back it makes perfect sense why I felt so at home in these games: I realize more and more that this is exactly how I experience (my) life: as one big Adventure Game…

Go figure…. I find myself in a world, on a planet I don’t know, in which I have to (re)discover the laws (and I don’t mean the ones that are opposed upon us or that seem to govern this reality).
It is a journey I have to make myself. I’m encountering all kinds of characters along the way, that serve a certain purpose, as sign posts and carry important information for my journey. However, life is also filled with ‘supporting actors’ and it is up to me to distinguish the supporting actors from the key players, the ones that can contribute to my journey or those that are a mere distraction.

Hero’s Journey
Games, movies, stories, fairytales, myths….they all contain deeper layers in which we all recognize a deeper truth; most of the time without even being consciously aware of this.
It resonates deeply with the Hero’s Journey we all take, the mythical journey that leads us to our true potential, that activates the superhero in each of us.
In this Game of Life it is up to me to discover who I am, why I am here and what my purpose is. 

This reality is a hologram. The Universe is the computer and we are the characters in the video game of Life’

Biology & Technology – friend or foo?

How ironic: the growing fascination for transcending biology, our human body, by the application of computer technology. From the assumption that our human body is obstructing our growth, our potential.

By the use of chips, bionic limbs (robot technology), wearables (portable gadgets like heart rate watches, programmed head bands etc), the application of Gen/Nano technology or the uploading of your brain to a computer.
Let’s call the Light version of this Biohacking, the Advanced version Transhumanism.

Ironic an the sense that we haven’t even mastered or (re)discovered our biological capacities. We haven’t even grasped the way our biological supercomputer works, let alone managed to work with it. We haven’t even mastered our potential to delete restricted programming from our minds and upgrade our consciousness to a whole new level.

Or let me put it this way: this knowledge ís available and we’ve been capable of using these skills but this knowledge is hardly available to most of humanity. Mainstream media uses outdated assumptions and perspectives of humanity, of who we are, of what we’re capable of and what part we play in the universe.

Instant Enlightenment
We apparently have the tendency to look for a Quick Fix, a Turnkey solution. The solution that provides ‘Instant Enlightenment’ by the push of a button. A solution that is to be found outside of ourselves, that is necessary to move to the next level in our evolution.

Artificial Obsession
What is it with our obsession for everything artificial….

Like how we tend to forget, even undervalue true inner beauty and loose ourselves in the search for artificial beauty.
Born from the illusion that this will boost our self-esteem. How many of us become dependent on make up and sometimes end up choosing plastic surgery: literally implanting artificial substances to be able to show a certain image on the outside. Maybe a ‘mask’ is a better choice of words.
But understandable when you think of the fact that natural beauty is something that happens on the inside and doesn’t create any profit in our consumption based economy.

Somewhere along the way we have forgotten what truly nourishes us, where our true power lies. What our body needs and what supports our biology. The healthcare and food industry also focus more and more on creating artificial, chemical alternatives to food and medicine. Treating illnesses with artificial, chemical and technological products and solutions.

There is a collective amnesia concerning our true source of healing or nutrition…. on what dimensions (spiritual, psychological, emotional and mental) need nourishment apart from merely our physical dimension.

Superhero
Our true calling is to (re)discover our full (biological) potential...
