I'm glad this 'topic' has been brought to Attention.
As a child, I played the video games though didn't make a habit of it.
As of recent, these games are so 'virtual' one could forget Reality altogether.
Unfortunately, this was by design, a poor one, though no accident.
Many years went past since childhood where I was too busy with Life to be 'Distracted'.
I suppose the tyrants that be, the funders had this in mind.
They would prefer the 'folk' to take their agressions out in the 'virtual' world than the Real one.
On the other hand, Right one, these games are used for positive purposes as well.
Some 'troops' as well as surgeons are encouraged to play these games to increase their eye/hand coordination skills. It works. Counterstrike was the
game I found quite intriguing as well as challenging and found it difficult to put down as it is designed to encourage one to perfect their skills
amongst their online competition from folks around the world in real time. I found it fascinating to play with folks from around the world and
communicate in real time with the competition. I no longer play these games though certainly understand how Addictive they can become.
The main issue with these games are the 'health' costs.
I had discovered the following from my personal experience with the nuevo games of the day.
Hint: there is 'matrix' of computer generated 'players' of which AI (artificial intelligence) assures the PLAYERS WILL NEVER WIN! Yes, the matrix is
UpOn you though the matrix that counts is the Matrix of Creativity.....Of the Creator ^*Above*^, the true 'Above Network'.
Congratulations, YOU WIN!!!!!
Never thought you'd hear that one and 'feel' it all the same.
1) Lack of SunLight will certainly bring about depression, anxiety, immune system failure, vitamin D and A absorption issues as well as a whole host
of other medical issues brought about by this lack of Sun, the power of your very being! SunPower is essential for effective and effiicient
functioning of the human body or for any 'life' on Earth. It is 'the' catalyst that makes the body function. The enzyme of one's very being.
2) Many young folks are being neuroprogrammed and sickened by this addictive technology and it is rewiring their very brain structure from it's
original state of 'being'.
3) The more folks play games, the more distracted and UnAware of the Reality going on around them.
The last thing a tyrant wants is for folks to pay 'Attention'.
4) $$$$$$. Ever wonder why the line goes through the S in $.
nuff said, though at what 'cost' to the social network?
5) Lack of social interaction and the continuing fracturing of the 'family unit' was also, by design, in order to decrease cohesiveness,
communication, familiarity, etc, etc.....you get the 'idea'.
There is much more though ^^^^^ that's enOUGH.
Would you agree?
Yes, I believe you would because it applies to Reason, Rationale, the intellect, the sapience/sentience, logic common sense, blabla and then
some.....yes All of the most important Tools In your shed.....collecting dust as ashes unto the SOL.
"Moderation In All Things" is an Ancient Proverb that has worked since the dawn of mAn.
Oh, DO take care folks.
