It is strange if you ponder. How large the world is but how shrunk it can be thanks to technology. The internet has let us reach many places and people we normally would never talk to, and it instills in us a curiosity that even with the closeness of the virtual world known as the world wide web. That there is still but a great distance between all of us. Some are nearer while others are farther.
Then a intimate concideration is struck between two people, and that great distance and sometimes that ever looming ocean. Brings the hope and wild thoughts down to ground level. Yet then we forget that there was a time. When soldiers were lost in trenchs a ocean away, their loves remained strong. Yet while things grow closer, they seem farther.
We let the great distance divide our hopes and dreams into things we might behold. We fail to relise those that dream bigger then where they stand normally attain it or a monicore of it. Be it in bussiness or love. It is those who see only obsticales that shape the world they live in, they overcome that which they find hard. And in the end their accomplishments bring them joy.
So while we strive to obtain that which is our desire no matter what it may be, while the distances are broken down by virtual space, we should remember it is strange but not impossible. To overcome that which we might seek a ocean or a state away. For in all things we desire, we are the only ones who can make them come true.
So the only strangness is finding that reason by which you can not obtain what you desire. Let the strangness go, let your dream sore, and one day you will find the happiness you desire.
Thanks to a few people, and a few games. Gamers get a overall bad vibe when people hear about them. They first think they are not very intelegent to get tied up into a game, when its no diffrent then someone whos hooked on a tv show like 24, or lost. Yet people fail to relise some very cool and important things. 1. Games can help your hand eye coordination. 2. Games can help your creativity and help you to explore possibilitys and use your mind to search out ways to do things not normally within the paramaters of the games design. 3. Games can link you to a culture of people who share a intrest with you, and if you get in with the right groups of individuals known as clans/guilds in games, you can learn alot about solcalization and leading others. 4. Games can also inspire new creations as seen here. See gamers are one type of adventure a person can make, and most often individuals who think gamers are basically geeks or brain dead do not relise gamers are just average people. looking for an escape from their daily stresses, just as you might grab a beer and watch your favorite tv show, gamers tend to pick up a group of individuals and go out and kill things. Like anything you do it can be an addiction, and i to have experianced a type of gaming addiction before. However as i played i also learned my mind begain to increase in awarness and problem solving . where as watching a tv show does not expand my abilitys mentally, its basically a brain dead opperation. If you view the video above you will see alot can go into a game, as well as into the video making. The creator first had to come up with the idea, plan it out in some way, then execute it. In the above video you can see coordination of several players, and timing to get what you see is something they had to overcome. also in games locations are not always easy to get to, and to get everyone there quickly is a tough endevor. Then we come down to the final of it all. The creativity involved in producing the video so its fun to watch. I have to say i love making gaming videos. infact i have been having some withdrawls of late for not making any. But soon i shall dive back into my gaming world, and start making more videos. So the next time you think a game is stupid, look deeper then its visual look, and see inside it more, and experiance the deeper side of it. Communitiy, expression, creativity, and most importatnly the mental side involved. Todays games are far from the space invaders game we once played, or the 2d donkey kong side scroller, today its in 3 dimmentions and the monsters have AI Brains, all be it their brains are limited they do pose a larger challenge then pacman ever did.
