This resonates with me.

It’s the scarcity and abundance principle.

Do you see people as unhealthy and ugly for the most part,
or sexy.

I guess I see a higher purpose now to talking to less attractive people. First of all, you never know, they might be the only one around when you wanna screw. Second and way more important is that it improves the view we all have of ourselves when we see the sexuality of others instead of only seeing what’s missing or wrong.

It kind lifts the dignity of a women when you flirt with her, regardless of whether or not you would have sex with her, because to flirt with her you choose to see the sexuality and be turned on by that sexuality, in order to flirt in a sexually charged(more natural) manner.(Therefore not fake)

Other societies that are less westernized seem to understand this. Spanish and Latin cultures seem to do this naturally. Actually I even remember getting my hair done by this black girl and her baby niece or sister was there and a few of the hair doer’s friends were there and one(a girl) was saying about the baby sister that she is going to have a nice ass when she grows up basically. That was at the time , to my dismay, but now I can see it in a new light. Especially since I don’t think any of that company where pedophiles. So it was the acknowledgement of a humans sexuality which is a form of abundance that we all have. To not acknowledge it or only do so in a negative light, is a good way to slightly demoralize a people.

I will add as a side note, that in the same vein there may be other positive traits in people that I could be acknowledging and therefore enjoying and may start doing. To the benefit of both sides.

These days, depending on where you live, people around you may be the type who look in disgust at anyone who isn’t a 8-10.

“ew, ew no, don’t talk to me, no don’t touch me, no, ew, no,
no ok?, your not ok, your not right, ewww!”

Honestly, we have a real “ew culture” in North America.
Does it come from some previous centuries sexual diseases that left traumatic memories that are being transferred down generations? maybe, iunno.

I can see how this could be a negative thing for everyone, not just the unattractive person. I mean, to judge that harshly, you gotta turn around and look in the mirror with those same judgements(maybe iunno). Anyways, with all
the mental health issues going on, we definitely need more people who see the sexiness in others and not only the negative side.

Next, the idea that you need to figure out if a girl is “good enough” for you, is fine, I mean, you don’t want to enter into a damaging relationship, but at the same time you don’t need to pretend a woman is not a woman otherwise. What I’m saying therefore is that to not be sexual with a woman is kinda of doing that, pretending or maybe deeply
feeling that they are not a woman. Just a friend or acquaintance.

Next, you know there are places where rape is just crazy rampant. You gotta wonder what would happen if people were more open to sexuality instead of letting it get tainted by frustration and anger although I’m sure there are other reasons for rape, I feel this is worth noting.

Then there are the obvious physiological/psych benefits to being thought of by and thinking of, every human being(at least opposite sex) as sexy. If girls catch on and start doing this too, stop treating men like boys, I can imagine a huge shift in culture. Everyone would have more confidence which means more health, mood, exercise, everything.

My only concern is, how to be sexual without being a tease. Or is that ok? lol. It’s still a complement even if I don’t end up f*cking the girl.

Many people who grew up when game consoles were just entering the market, have very fond memories. I am one of these. The thing is, my memories of games are too fond to just let them be memories. I have a suspicion that games are actually far more significant than most people give them credit for. I feel that games may actually be taking sentient life somewhere in terms of evolution. I will explain.

When we walk through our world, we are navigating through data.

We are a conscious mind, taking in data and navigating based on it
and based on laws that act on us.

In the real world we can walk up to a tree and see wood as brown because it is brown.
In the real world we can walk up to a plant and see it as green because it is green.
This is data about our world that we take in.

We see our tv screen, when off, as a tv screen.When the tv screen is on, we see what’s on it, as what’s on it. Moving pictures. More data.

In the real world we can we can walk up to our tv screen and see the pictures.

However, when what’s on it, is a video game level that we can navigate through,
what we see, although still moving pictures, are now actually data that we are navigating through.
That level is real. It is part of the real world because we can navigate through it and take in data about it. It has a traversal-able  landscape.

So this is were it get’s interesting.

A cell phone picture album, a mysql data base, these are all things we can navigate through and take in data from, so they are parts of our world, but they are not worlds of there own, they are just parts of our world, like tools, like a phone book.

A level on the other hand is engineered to be an actual world. It would be part of our world if it were just a house or garden in someones back yard. However, game levels are independent systems. They have there own physical laws and basic building blocks. I am kinda thinking that it therefore, is an actual world. When you play a video game you are stepping into another, albeit man made, world.

The fact that it is man made may at first make it less intriguing than stepping on the moon, but only to adults. Adults I think can fall into the trap of being too used to each other, too used to being human, to fully see their accomplishments for what they are. A child sees Zelda OOT for the first time and it’s amazing because it’s totally beyond is understanding for the moment, just as all the adults who made it are to him. I think the thing to keep in mind is that although these new worlds are man made, man isn’t man made, and so that thought should restore some of the mystique of what another world has to offer. Especially if that man/men who made it did not just rip the idea of a top seller.

Not only does another world have different physical laws but it also has it’s own belief systems, it’s own psychological rules, that a society of that world will believe in. I mean even beyond the role play element some of them have which to be frank, an NPC is an NPC, people know it’s an AI. I’m not saying it’s not a part of the world, I’m saying that it doesn’t have a consciousness, a computer programmer just programmed it to act like it does. This is common knowledge. The beliefs that do exist in this world are things likepoints. Achievements. You could say though that these beliefs are just based on accomplishment and so they transcend worlds. However, here is a scenario.

A person plays a game and they assume that like every other game, you shoot the bad guy, you win.
Shooting the bad guy is challenging so they do it and accomplish something. What if the game says, “you lose. You aren’t supposed to shoot the bad guys. You aren’t supposed to do anything. You win by doing nothing. There are no points. There is no competition. You lose if you compete. you lose if you don’t compete. There is a goal, but you are not allowed to strive for it, or you lose.”

Well then there is a dissonance between the beliefs of this world and of that world. In this world you feel good if you achieve something. In that world it is to be internalized as a rule that trying to achieve is unacceptable by the creators of that world. This may not be the most fun game to play but does it prove my point that different worlds can create their own psychological rules. This is important because we have psychological rules hard wired into us. Rules like don’t die and rules like, do what feels good. Society for the most part agree on that set of rules. However if you go to another world where the only way to play is by going against some basic rules like working towards a goal that exists.

Well actually, the thing that makes a game a game, is that it has a goal. If it is just a place with different physical laws, then it’s not a game, but it is still a real and separate world.

And for the last part I just want to share ideas on the future of these new worlds. New worlds don’t have to be strictly on screen. They just have to have their own physical laws and maybe have a membrane between it and this one. A screen is one membrane. The internet is a membrane. Atmosphere is one membrane. Our bodies, are a membrane between the outside world and our internal world. So I am thinking there may be other ways of creating worlds besides just screens.

With the economy the way it is people are really feeling the stress, the need, to have a secure job and to be making money. This need, especially in the minds of young graduates who can live comfortably at home with parents, may be over emphasized, and exaggerated. I do some experiments on personal motivation using Steve pavlina’s description of polarity as a guide. I definitely feel I learned a hard lesson. I took some of what he said the wrong way and chose a polarity that was not at all right for me. I care about people, but the stress of unemployment actually scared me into choosing the dark self serving polarity. It hasn’t worked out well and I know now its because the dark polarity is only really for those people who have had hard lives and are willing to see themselves as superior beings to everyone else and see themselves as the center of the universe. I was never willing to do that and so I think I was already pretty far on the Light polarity when I decided it was time to try the dark side(what I thought was the dark side) which was working for yourself trying to get ahead(not competitively which would be closer to the dark side, but just passively working mostly for myself). All this did was put my energy in flux and it started affecting all areas of my life in a negative way. The Dark side is not for me.
The next thing to consider is the opposite polarity, the light side. Which is about service to others, to the greater good. This seems more for me, it seems more for anyone actually because if everyone lived this way the world would be a very happy place. As opposed to if everyone was in competition with each other or only out for themselves. If everyone was light side you would be receiving help from everyone. If everyone was Dark side you would be fighting the resistance of everyone.
Thing to note, the light side requires helping oneself as well to ensure ones own survival. Also the dark side requires helping others to ensure ones on survival.

The thing is the light side is motivated by love, which is a positive emotion and so is medically a healthy thing to have. Meanwhile the dark side is motivated by fear which is a negative emotion and medically unhealthy. I guess Steve Pavlina thinks a person who needs to turn to the dark side to survive like maybe in jail or war or in the ghetto or something should just do it and come out alive. Otherwise I see no reason why anyone would choose such an unhealthy way of life. Still not sure I agree with it even then.
The light side is about love, and I think it could be seen as more than just loving others and living to serve. I think its loving yourself and others, as opposed to the dark side fearing  others and maybe ones self as well like with shame.

So I think its a lot like what Jesus said about loving your neighbor as you love yourself, this suggests that you do love yourself.

So the light side seems a lot better when seen that way. It seems a lot like “defeating Kolrami”, his other article. Here Steve suggests aiming for a tie instead of a win. So it’s noncompetitive. Does that mean not trying to win. No, it means trying to make it so everyone wins. Basically you realize the abundance in your life, and you realize everyone can win instead of just one person. So you don’t need to worry about being all for yourself because there is so much to go around that everyone can get their fill. So if someone lives in a situation where that is the truth, say in a country where there is free internet. Access to more knowledge than a human could ever need. A person in that situation should be thinking in terms of abundance because they actually do have it. Even in a situation where some one has less, they could still make “stone soup”( a story from the bible where Jesus taught poor people to improvise with what they had to feed not only themselves but guests when they thought they had nothing. Basically your richer than you think.
With the frame of mind that you live in abundance, while you still need to live smart, you can focus on making a life instead of a living. You can focus on playing with others instead of against them or by yourself. Living this way, Defeating Kolrami, will allow an unemployed person to live the life of their dreams, doing amazing and exciting things with friends and family, and achieve all their dreams.

Living life this way, with the knowledge, the realization of abundance, will allow someone to work with others not caring who gets the credit, or go out to a club and cheer friends on to pick up a hot girl or guy without feeling like its a personal loss. Living like that and you will gain so much more, for yourself and for everyone else throughout the whole journey and everyone reaches the top and it is sustainable. So stop worry about getting rich first. Realize you are rich already, be smart with the money you have or get of course but realize your rich already and can do what you love. Then do what you love, all the things you love, which I’m sure include things with others. You keep doing that, and of course the money will follow and you can invest it and whatever, but don’t let that be the goal because then your not really doing what you love and because the money I think we will find, is really overrated.

I think variety is an extremely important concept(is what I’m calling it) or maybe I’ll call it a Rule. It is one of those things, those rules that can be applied to multiple areas of our lives and it seems that Rules like that are important, maybe because it makes remembering to do things a certain way easier when you have a concept you can remember to apply wherever possible instead of seeing every situation as a different thing. Kinda like how in programming you can factor out an argument common to all if statements or somthing. Oh would you look at that, another rule type thing, that’s a whole N’other post right there.

Anyways, the thing that brought me to the idea of variety being worthy of being called a rule is that I was thinking of diet and how the Japanese dietary guidelines say to eat 30 different foods a day. I’v also heard somthing about 120 different foods a week. The japanese are the some of the most (if not the most) healthy people in the world. They have the highest number of centenarians of any country. I’m assuming that last statistic is in proportion to the number of people but  don’t know. And highest life expectancy. Diet combined with their more active lifestlye is probably the cause.

Next Variety is important in getting sources of information. Weather it is lessons about life or lessons on math, varying your sources is important.

MMA fighters wouldn’t do well with just one style.

Ok basically this idea penetrates most areas of our lives and I just think it deserves to be observed and remembered.

This probably applies to language as well. Vary what you learn and your entertainment media to keep things fun. Vary the speakers you listen to, variety the accents you hear, Vary the languages you know which is what you are doing by learning another one. Theres so many applications of the rule of variety out there and they can be of so much help just in general.
