I'd like to present to you a good analogy/ theory / fun thought that could help demonstrate how life could actually be for, and why we would even want
to live in a world so chaotic as our own.
I call it, the Minecraft Duality
Let's say you've heard or googled a indie game called Minecraft, and you had the option to play as a god ( with all materials you could want, infinite
health an food, and ability to fly), Or as a human, start with nothing and have to eat and limited life and need to gather food and materials to
1st off both options would mean you live /play completely different than each other, with only general concepts that may inter mingle.
You are forced online in most servers to play as a human ( Survival mode ) with or without basic of the basics. Sometimes not even that, it's just
like life, yes a graphical rendition, but a general concept at the very least. And can be a time sync for obvious reasons, and non obvious reasons.
But many at some point and time, play as a developer ( creative mode ) and has access to all the materials and such, they play and it's on average not
that long suprisingly, most normally go back to playing survival as it's called, where they can die, loose all their items, and get robbed / griefed.
As a God, you'd eventually get bored, it happens, and it's mostly due to lack of feelings and experiences that happen when you value the specific time
and materials you have, and without those feelings / experience it's boring having the ability to do anything, without the concept of time, people to
interact and such, not lonely, just boring, predictable, and unchallengeable, non engaging, nothing would require more than a mere thought, to me that
sounds fun for a day or two, but I'm adventurous at heart, and have an attention issue. Heaven sounds wonderful an all, but I'd honestly ask to come
back. Do it again, an again, an again, maybe somewhere else, or as something else, or just the same with slight differences.
But really, if you think about being a god, as we define it, I say not only would you be screaming to endure life for a day on earth, but you'd
sacrifice all you knew, and all you could have to live a lifetime of not knowing, and challenge.
Think about it..
