FORA • life • 2005.07.10
FORA- Life itself is game, projecting the same experiencial archtypes
which are projected into the computer games.
They absorb an enormous amount of mental energy,
and since the parrellel identity has been invested in so deeply
games become addictive, and the focus of people's human lives.
For many people who play games it is a desperate addiction-
though not everybody of course, some people may moderate;
but the foundational inscentive to project your consciousness out of this world
and onto a plane where you appear to have god-like abilities is rooted in
the ignorance that that is what this already is... you're already god here.
An inscentive to play with people you may never meet face to face
is that we feel less coniditioned by their expectations
and so our consciousness flows more spontaneously.
Observing the forms of my mind,
this induces an addictive sense of freedom.
Addiction to computer games is as dangerous
to development as dependence on substances-
it is the feelings we become addicted to.
Yet these feelings offer but a fractured glimpse of the conscious planes
which is ungrounded to the knowledge
and discipline required to operate at these levels in a way which will
enrich our entire state of being.
All things in moderation can bring immense insight,
and everybody's level of moderation is different,
yet there is a fine line between addiction and denial.
Projecting consciousness into the 'second life'
is surely a diversion from the first.
