A MMORPG is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game, for those who may be out of the know on the acronym.
Like any role-playing game, you the player take on the role of a character which becomes your avatar in the world of which the game system is based
Like any game system, they are Genre specific, implying an over-all theme for the game, and how the characters interact with the game world.
This world offers a multitude of themes which we observe through the span of time, entrenched in different eras. For example, you can be a Knight in
medieval 13th century England. Or a shaman in a rain-forest tribe in 200BC.
Like any game system, you have a series of self-imposed limitations which confine you to the role of the character, to allow it to act in a believable
way with the game world.
As your character advances, you progress along the world with experiences of the character in the role that it engages. At some point depending on
the RPG, if you character dies, you simply roll a new character and start playing the game again.
In many ways, our life is like a RPG. This reality system provides us a human-body which is our interface with this world, it's our avatar and the
character we play.
It is easy to see lots of common similarities to a RPG and life, but what if life really was a game, and you really are just playing a character in a
massive game world, but didn't know it as that taboo breaks the rules?
When you start to study consciousness, and engage in some of the modern theories, for example Physicist Dr. Thomas Campbell author of "My Big Toe",
provides a very interesting analogy of the Universe we exist in, from the perspective of consciousness.
Watch Dr. Thomas Campbells "My Big Toe"
His studies, like others who have attended the Monroe Institute in Faber Virginia have likewise also come to some startling conclusions about this
reality, and consciousness. None more so then the founder Robert A. Monroe who authored "Journeys Out-of-the-Body", "Far Journeys", and
"Ultimate Journeys". Which are highly recommended reads for anyone wanting a fresh look at 21st century conscious exploration.
What is described in the research and lectures summarizes reality as being one of many reality systems where we as a consciousness are participating
in them by taking on a role of a character within the reality system.
Reality in a consciousness context, is merely organized intelligent energy forming itself into a convincing personal IMAX. Author Anthony Peak and
friend Karl Marc have come up with a theory regarding a Bohmian IMAX experience where we, the observer are engaged by our inner IMAX experience which
conveys the census of reality we experience.
The further we dive into consciousness, the more we uncover a role by which we are more then just a human. We are discovering we are a consciousness
experiencing what it is like to be human.
Before the human, according to Robert A Monroe, we existed as a non-human intelligence in observation of a much grander, larger multi-verse and
happened to stumble on a system which provides a human experience.
One of the rules of the experience, is total blackout of memory of original self, for the purpose of experiencing the human self.
In Roberts journey, he started to wake up out-of-body and realize that something more was afoot. That he could be conscious and self-aware in a state
that wasn't his normal in-body human perspective. And he started to explore and document his experiences.
For him, his journey took him all the way back to his original entry point into the Human Experience, and gave him a tour of all the lives he
accumulated since his arrival here.
In the end of his book Far Journeys, he describes that our original self can become addicted to human experience to the point that this experience is
all it thinks it knows, and goes on, and on coming back to human life. Eventually, it starts to awaken and graduates from human life into what Monroe
describes as INSPEC or a highly intelligent species. (Far beyond human intelligence).
My personal experience is on a journey similar to what Robert A Monroe writes about. It's one of the reasons I respect his work from a perspective
of agreeable common realizations.
I remember existing before this life, and I remember having to come back to this life despite at the time, a big disagreement between the being
sending me back, and myself then.
In some of my out-of-body experiences, I have observed people at what could be called the entry station to human experience, and I clearly remember
them picking out time/place and the type of character attributes. It was exactly this memory reviewed that prompted me to share the life is a MMORPG
So what kind of character are you playing?
