Gaming an escape from reality for spirituality attuned people.

PC's, Consoles, Cards, and Board Games!
Hi just something I was thinking about, and it's something I can relate to on a personal level.

Just my opinion that many people; Indigos, and spiritually gifted develop an escapist mentality get lost in video games, because theyre looking for a more magical world that they're naturally inclined to gravitated towards. Many indigos and spiritually awakened people (whether they know they are or not) will waste a great portion of their time gaming, keeping them away from socialising, learning new experiences(of value), and dealing with matters pertaining to the real world.

I think this because of my personal experiences involved in gaming. (especially the horrible World of Warcraft.)

I was really only interested in the PVP aspect of the game, and I for the first time in my life i was actually excelling at something(As useless as it seems now). During my 5 years of playing I constantly met some truly gifted people, and now realizing all of the connections I ever made on that game were always with people with whom I had very strong telepathic connection with.

And now realizing that so much talent and so many gifts were wasted on this game( and so many other games).

And MANY of the highest rated players were all (personality wise) what I would classify as ''Indigo'' or spiritually gifted people, and mostly all had some sort of telepathic or psychic gift, and I would always turn out to have some sort of personal,emotional connection as odd as it sounds with these people over the internet.

When you comes to think of it, the most powerful advantage any top gamer could ever have in a competitive environment, would be either telepathy, or clairvoyance/clairsentience etc( Basically any extra ordinary sense that the average joe doesnt possess.


Now, despite me wasting so much time on this game, I came to learn alot about the belief of the existence of some sort of paranormal/spiritual world. Because of the frequent occurence of telepathic and psychic phenomenom.

My question to you all is: Is it possible that video games, are part of some greater conspiracy to either locate, subdue, or throw as many Spiritual people off their path as much as possible by keeping them chained to these alter realities.

Or is it possible some of you might see it as a training ground of exercising your gifts.


I won't lie I still play Call of Duty MW3 like once a month, and I always rank highest not because I'm at all good at the game, but it just seems like I try to ''feel through'' where i need to go, to stay safe, and get some kills. ;)




Not stating anything as fact, or claiming anything to be truth, this is just a truth in my reality and it may not be the same for someone elses, but it's just to provoke a little into the matter and see what others have to say about it.

Thanks,
eloquent27

There is no doubt in my minds that gaming will increase
the probibly of players developing psi-abilities. Like any
sport, you can just play and intutitively be good . . . .
or you understand the mental process you go
through to develop your intitution as a spherical
thinking of "Just Knowing".
You need be aware of the Gaming alternate
Awareness, and use that trigger point as a
point to develop other abilities to aid your gaming
reward ability. This includes other abilities like
Clairvoyance and understanding the selection
of correct action through the presented probabilities.

Like any sport, you get out of it what you put into it.

Be in harmony,
be in beauty.

I don't play (never played) mass online games, especially not military ones, but I do believe that many games, as well as roleplaying ones, offer a wide range of experiences, as real, or even more real, than what your life can offer you, depending on where you life and what you do.
If you work behind a desk, you'll probably never experience anything heroic in real life, just like sometimes group games make you feel intimate, intense connection with team mates, to the point of shedding tears and feeling utterly destroyed when something happens in the game.
That's also, I believe, why Japanese animation and comics are so popular. The experiential value of the contents, beyond the entertainment/toy looks.
Escaping from reality is an interesting way of putting it, because I consider reality to be projected from inside...
So I'd say the games make you focus your Light on specific aspects of yourself, temporarily disconnecting from your main reality theme.

I've learned so much playing and DMing AD&D... Some of those skills (social, creative, strategic...) serve me on a weekly basis.

In combat, in any war or war game, you go with your feelings.
When on patrol in hostile territory, The Squad point man always
searched for discord as we were walking on a trail. Spotted and
avoided many mines that way. One guy would RV it to see what
type, but most of them could not be deactivated easily. The Spotter
would mark it with a small Thai or UN flag. One of us put a stone by it,
and the last guy picked the flag.

Before entering a shack, room or tunnel, you "Felt" for the discord first.
Then using RV, you would "check-it-out". It could be a bomb-trap
or just hidden weapons, or a hidding-no-threat-person.

The "discord" searching [opponent behind the door] works in gaming.
RVing into the game-its-self, you can see/feel the "intention" of the
game designer. Taught this to a friends teen and the International
team he joined was quickly was in the top 20.
Be in harmony,

note: whether real or gaming,
it is important to remember that
the War sucks you into an alternate reality.
Some guys/gals get stuck in that war reality
because
its "rules" are easier to follow then
the "rules" of Home's and School's Society.
That is why GI's in Afghanistan re-enlist for additional tours.
Or "gamers" only feel comfortable in the game.

There is a point where the game does
become . . .is real . . . .
and your Home and school is the alternate reality. . . .

I don't know of any easy way to "get-back-home".
Certainly drugs won't take you there. . . .

The only way I know is to reverse the process
that sucked you in. Then slowly, "Home's Reality"
and "Schools Reality" will become more real as it
becomes another type of a Gaming Challenge.
Then you can accept Home
as a 3-D reality again.

60 years later,
I still have parts of my War Reality
pop up, but I know why they are,
and they pop up because there is still
part of them that I miss or regret.
I can look at them as the "combat solders life",
not my "Now" life.

But the same is true about
many individual parts of my life experience.
The German Psychologist Jung called it:
"Assigning an experience to a specific person
within you, that he called "An Archetype".

I know that for me at least when I game it is a way to connect with myself and as well as blow off some steam.

Games are great for taking your mind off things. Over the years, it's certainly helped me a lot.
It's kind of like that feeling you get after meditating. Your mind feels really clear afterwards.
And you can pretend that the pixelated policeman you're beating with a baseball bat is your boss. :)

[SIZE=3][SIZE=2][/SIZE][/SIZE][SIZE=2]I have been gaming for a long time ... about thirty yearz and one thing about it "itz not dangerous" ... "it makes you smarter" if you are playing the right types of gamez...
Many strategy gamez that are old school... are better than the new "Mass Market Effect" gamez... Real "Geek" gamez are eternal such as Baulders Gate or Icewindale series... they were made for real gamerz ... not gamerz on the go
These types of gamez implore your mind to think constantly and make choices and stragegize constantly...
[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]The reason gamez take you into their world is simple itz a form of [/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]
MEDITATION
Your focus is super human in playing many gamez ... But to truly get the most out of games don't short set yourself... they noticed that people started to become smarter by using some types of gamez ... and started to mass market "simpleton gamez" ... those types are a waste
You need to play gamez that make you think... it iz true that a lot of shooter gamez are making people smarter but they are cornering your mindz into a specific type of intelligence and focus ... "not so goood"
You need gamez that will give you ultimate freedoms with ultimate graphics and many different skills sets ....
I do not like many American games outside of their high ability to make fantasy gamez " Americans are good at dungeon crawlerz"
But I have to hand it to them on the Mass Effect series ... incredible and delightful... the graphics and the many skill setz allow for you to return and play again and again...

May the divine bless us all...

I think they're an escape for the spiritually unattuned as well. But not necessarily a very productive escape, (shoot everything that moves). I like games that immerse me for different reasons, namely freedom of movement and expression. Using the former to move through and overcome obstacles in your path. As a traceur, I'm naturally gravitated toward such games. And they undoubtedly sharpen my abilities. I only wish they'd make more games like this, and less of those stale, mindless FPS's.

I think games hold quite a lot of value, I tend to prefer the RPGs because I get to sort of get into the mindset of the character I'm playing and react from his/her point of view. In a somewhat limited but fun way it helps me to understand the motives of others around me. I have two favorite series I love to play. The Elder Scrolls and Pokemon. The Elder Scrolls I started with the fourth in the series titled Oblivion. Pokemon I started with Red and Blue versions and have played every main series entry thus far. I also have a weekly table top RPG I go to and I enjoy that quite a bit as well. Not only do I get to get into the mindset of someone else, but I'm not as limited as to what my character can do.

For example the SIMS.
When i play it i start to imagine i live in the houses i built,aliens start to shoot my house i teleport in their ship and destroy it then teleport back to the aliens and beat them up in military style i gues.

spartacus,
you are not imagining, You are "in" the Games Dimensional Reality and are in control of it.
That is a psi-ability. Using your focus on an intention to achieve your goal is psi-stuff.
If you know "how" you do it, you can use that information psi-process in our reality too. . . . ;-)

Yes.

It has been an escape for me. Indefinitely. Yea, its a bad habit. But without it- who knows if I'd be alive or not in jail. What I mean by that, is I got distracted from the pain I felt with this instead of drugs/violence, as some of my other "indigo" friends of very high IQ ended up going. Empathy is one of those gifts that can drive people insane.

A good friend is an Consulting Elecrical Engineer.
His specalty is repairing hard to find "glitches" in
Software. Using his psi-Remote Viewing ability,
he does the "Tron Trip". Usually he can make the
adjustment/corrections while "In-There". If it is
a hardware problem, he has to come out and replace
the board after he makes sure his replacement is OK.

Then he goes "Tron" again to make sure his replacement
is accepted by the other parts "in the community".

He is the same guy who's group has perfected
a new form of multiphasic electricity that has now
released the "rights" to specific industries for the
needed infrastructure development. This form of
electricity will revolutionize the Electric Energy World.
All of the "Tron" group have psi-abilities that were used
in this Energy development.
Be in Harmony,
be in beauty.
roger
note:
Some _IS_ members can take a bit of credit for this new energy form.
Three years ago several _IS_ members got together to learn to
"braid" energy in forms for storage structures.

Three "Tron" Engineers are members of the local weekly meeting
of the Sacred Geometry group that I attend. They were at a
meeting where I mentioned this _IS_ activity of energy braiding
as an extension of our psi-abilities in controlling energy.

A very serious discussion of this psi-type-energy projection
followed. [Energy wave structure, volume, pressure . .etc]
It was the clue they needed to clear a "block" they had been facing.
. . . ;-) ;-)

I love gaming and I will do it as much as I can. If I think it's bad for me, then it is bad for me, because I start to see stuff that might be bad from it. But I turn it other way around, thinking it is good for me. Then I start to see good stuff it provides me and concentrate on that.

For me gaming is one type of meditation. It teaches to relax, it enriches imagination etc. Like Waking Up said it puts you into the mindset of character with all its powers and abilities. And I usually always develop my own character thinking why he has one or another ability. And then I imagine that character being a superhuman. And sometimes I go even beyond with my imagination like believing I can have the same abilities if I just believe it enough. This is a lot of fun. And that's why I can't play all sorts of games, like war games Battlefield and MoH, because then I have to develop the suitable story for the character that suits with my own. Mindless killing in games, it is hard to develop the suitable character.

Or rally games, Dirt 3 for example, can teach you a lot. Hard to explain, but if you put your power of will into it and all other mind goes blank, I can drive always super-best times. Difficult to explain, but all that mind stuff learned in gaming is also beneficial in everyday life. Gaming can be highly spiritual.

Joel, I know exactly what you mean about your mind going blank and doing better than you ever have. Sometimes when I play FIFA and I get really into it I can form the most complex plays and just find every single hole in the defense. It also feels like my mental capacity at times like those is just beyond that of my brain. Like, it feels like I could have a million thoughts going on while simultaneously destroying the other player. It's awesome. I need to go get that game...

The *blanking* of the mind [conscious mind] is the Gateway
to all the psi-abilities. The conscious mind is trained to use
words and a logical, linear, thought process.

When "gaming", playing music, dancing, painting a painting, reading
a book any activity that draws you into it; detaches from your
conscious mind and allows access to the 5 other minds that
make up "your-self".
"Your-self" is your spirit, your Archetype personality and your soul.
The Muggle term for the actions of "your-self" and the team of
your other 5 minds [going beyond your conscious-mind-brain] is **instinct**.

The Big-Five use picture-thought-energy to communicate to each other.
That is why the relationship of a pictorial game to the Big-Five is so clear.
You are speaking the games language, and it responds to your pictured
thought intention.
Once detached from the conscious mind . . .this is the way it works.
You see an pictured action to respond to. . . . .
The Spherical-mind, as the 5 member team, looks at all the possible
reactions and selects the "best" one, with the information it has.

The Limbic mind-brain, takes that pictured conclusion response
and gives the Cellular-body-mind-brain the OK to implement it..
The Cellular body as a brain-mind tells the hands to activate the
Game Controls to cause the "best response" to happen.
All of this can happen in one thousandth of a second,
when you are "In-the-game" as an Alternate Reality.

Do you see where your "million thoughts" come into
the picture?
I think it is totality awesome
that your-self is so "part of it"
so totality "In tune"
that you are feeling/sensing the Spherical Mind at work. :cool:
Be in harmony,
be in beauty.
roger
note:
Other sports have a term for *Being-part-of-it":
In-To-It, In the zone, Owning the court, Owning the course,
In the moment, Nailed it, and Is really with it, are some of the
descriptive terms that are used to explain the "Oneness"
that has taken place.
I call it a result of "focused intention".
