Mirror, mirror on our screens...

I just love computers. Most of my (office) days I'm behind a computer screen. Creating all these beautiful virtual constructs, online communities, digital worlds: I can't seem to get enough of this. Each one of these creations contributing to the consciousness and wellbeing of its users. It is like digitally playing with my own creation potential; everything is possible in the virtual world.

Computer technology however also has this miraculous mirror effect: it reflects (our) potential. It demonstrates what our reality is actually composed of, what we are actually composed of...

The holistic perspective claims that everything consists of energy and everything is interconnected. Replace the term 'energy' by bits and bytes, by ones and zeros. How 'woo woo' is this assumption actually? Our current computer technology shows us that it is a given, that you can build a reality by something that ins't visible to the naked eye... In both this energetic as virtual reality the possibilities of this creation potential are infinite.

Internet: the world wide web
The internet demonstrates our interconnectivity. Through the internet it is possible to have a realtime connection with someone on the other side of the globe, in a different time zone. Not bound to time and space.
The internet also gives us access to a world wide library, to an unfathomable amount of information. We can store data in the Cloud, in information fields we cannot see with our naked eye, in virtual data banks. Everything is information, everything is energy.

The Internet of Things is adding, connecting, a growing number of  ‘things’ to the internet, creating one big data network. In which all this data leads a life of its own, where it is being analysed and mapped (often) without the need of human intervention. This data netwerk contains all of your health data, data from your private life uploaded in Social Media but also your Geodata (where you are when), purchases, payments and data from all your ‘Smart’ ware and wearables (Smart phone, Smart TV, Smart watch, Smart meter etc).

Chat features offer us a modern form of telepathic communication. Without any spoken word we're having conversations and we can read each others thoughts on our computer screens. We exchange gigabytes of data through our desktops, smart phones, tablets, gadgets and games.

AI (Artificial Intelligence) is todays crystal ball, through which we can predict our future by complex algorhythms. To some extent that is, because we are limited to using that information which is quantifiable, measurable.

Wifi – wireless internet
Where we used to need wires to get access to the internet, today all we need is a Wifi connection. We think it's completely normal to swim in a constant sea of data, amidst waves of information, that we can't observe with the naked eye. We're non-stop surfing these waves, directly or indirectly interacting with all of this data.

We think it's completely normal that we can pick up sounds and images by switching channels on a television or radio, tuning into other frequencies or by entering numbers, dialing a phone number. We consider it to be paranormal though to perceive other realities, other dimensions by tuning into other frequencies ourselves.

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’
