Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. I live a mundane life. boring life, A life that is basically a means to an end. You spend 17 to 20 years at school and getting an education only so you can buy a house, car, pay bills and retire on 200k if you are lucky. I mean there will be little experiences through out life that may be fun, seeing a movie, getting married, growing a garden. But this is not enough for me, I am extremely board with life to the point were I am coming onto this site looking for answers on how to get off this planet or escape this mundane life and really start living, experiencing and enjoying life with out any constraints put there by religion or our governments. Like we all know there is such things as aliens, we all know technology has been suppressed here on earth so big companies can make money off out of date technology and medicines.

I am studying to be a games developer, and am a expert 3d modeler. I guess the best thing about becoming a games developer is you can create you own reality's with in your games even if you just escape all the worlds problems for just 15 minutes a day.

I look at the sky every night and I get a sense that there has to be more to life then this. But then I think what ALEX JONES has said, Earth is a prison Planet.

Well he is 100% right, Our governments suppress technology, And suppress and forbid us to meet aliens from other planets, The van allen belt prevents humans from pretty much leaving earths outer orbit with out getting sick from radiation, Religious dogma that corrupts our thinking,
big companies and governments care about nothing but money and running the human soul into the ground with taxes and obscene prices.

I have been a member or the "OTO" Ordo Templi Orientis, Ive been a catholic, I have been a member of Scientology, I have been a high degree Free Mason, I have been a spiritualist And yet none of these things has brought me any step closer to the truth or a escape from living a mundane reality.

Apart from a reality check witch I am sure many of you are suggesting that I need, If I wanted to open up a whole new reality of living were money is no issue, No knowledge is suppressed, Were traveling to other planets or in space was in reach for me "in stead of just a dream" Were you had access to forbidden knowledge and technology that 99.9 % of the human population have no idea about how would I go about it?

As I said there has to be more to life then living a mundane life that equals just a means to an end.

Any suggestions ?

Well written OP, but sorry my belief is that everyone on this planet suffers from " Hotel California" syndrome.

Sorry sunshine .. your stuck on this rock right along with the rest of us ...
Take time to enjoy the simple things in life .. go camping or up in the mountains spend some time .. youd be amazed how much more of the night sky you can see away from cities ..

Go off grid...honestly

Live cheaply and drive into town and use the free wifi at coffee shops....or start out slowly...and over time get totally off grid. Not seeing people and spending more time in nature makes you feel like you are on another planet. And then when you do see people you are excited to talk to someone...sometimes....

The technology now is there to live off grid comfortably and there are quite a few places you can navigate through laws to not need permits.

And my last and best advice...if you are in America then move to another country with lower cost of living. Leaving your home country wherever it is makes you realize it is not perfect at all...and most likely not the best like you were spoon fed.

Good luck and I feel the same way...I often fantasize about leaving the planet.

Aside from striking it rich and building your own spaceship with warp drive, you are stuck here like the of us.

We might be there already if we put some our war toys fund into space travel and advanced propulsion.

It sounds to me like you need a vacation with some adventure. Are you a city dweller now?

If you do some traveling to non mainstream places, you kind find yourself in the middle of nowhere, away from civilizations grasps.

Personally, i would do a boat trip from florida, through the Bahamas, down through the bvis, and into the mouth of the Amazon River in SA.

Meditation or drugs pretty much only escape from reality. But you always get dragged back.
I always likes this quote from someone
"Reality is a nice place to visit"

Take a vacation to South American and sample some of the products down there that may help you find out what it is all about.

I second a trip to South America - Argentina preferably - and get familiar with their wines... It's literally everywhere (grocery stores, fast food joints, street vendors, etc)

We're all stuck here. Wine helps the stay.

There's heaps of different things you can do to change things up. But it'll just become mundane after a while, that's why drugs & alcohol don't work, lol.

It'd be nice to be able to travel the world, if your lucky enough to have the money & freedom, it'd keep you entertained for a while. But to be honest, I don't think its a long term solution. I have family members who are constantly travelling around the world, sure they have all these stories about all the amazing cultures they've seen. Seriously though, imo they're fairly bitter people and not all that 'enlightened' for there experiences. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say they're extremely shallow people, more money than sense will probably do that to a person though.

Acceptance of what is, is probably the only true long term solution. But I really don't know how to achieve that. I find life more boring and mundane than anyone!

Just put myself in the least stressful position I possibly can, then just ride it out to the end. That's my plan anyway.

I, too am sharing the feeling of being stuck in mud. I'm currently unemployed and living on my 401k because, because. These past few weeks, day after day, I just get up and check my postings here and elsewhere and post more like this read things on internet and eat and go back to bed. That's literally ALL I'm doing lately. I should be trying more.
I should be doing more.

I'm doing NOTHING.

And yet, I can't break out of it. Just woke up and got on here.

I find myself envious of your degree that you have going. That's so exciting to me. I would love to be an expert at something like that. I've been working on the same "game art" drawing for months now. I'll bring up Photoshop, and often it gets closed at the end of my awake session without even touching it. I'm so stuck. I'm so stuck.

I'm mid 40s now with the silly idea that I can make some sort of career out of this thing I can't even bring myself to do. Honestly, I think to myself that I'm just waiting the next couple years for the money to run out and then just end it. I don't want to live to be old anyway. I haven't even been gaming anymore.

Here's some advice that I won't take myself:

Have you experienced going to any of the big music venues or following a groove band tour? Not to suggest hallucinogens while doing so, but yes I am. A little experimentation there is worth it. Some of the best experiences I've had. Especially if you have something called friends you can do this with.

They say volunteering to a cause you believe in can change your life. They say that.

Many here support getting meditative with it. Exploring the dream world through lucid dreaming. Again, they say meditation is a powerful tool to opening up new pathways and ideas in your life. They say that. I'm considering this one if I ever stop this awful cycle.

You've already had what sounds to be some interesting experiences. I don't know how you escaped Scientology so deftly, but grats to you on that. Bummer to hear that you've achieved within those sects only to find yourself in the same situation everyone else is in. I've considered that they might at least have some interesting opportunities for excitement. Guess not.

To literally be an astronaut sounds like it's actually one of the most boring existences OUTside the planet. Day after day in gear and adhering to strict procedures to just get a glimpse of us far away. I'm not clear on what you're referring to here.

Also, just as a sidenote. Why does everyone capitalize Alex Jones' name like that in posts I see around? Kind of odd that it seems so common.

Best of luck and let me know if you find anything.

Spent a lot of time traveling.

But when your camping on a beach on a tropical island, with perfect weather and clear blue water, just watching whales breaching from the sea and your still not satisfied and still feel that life is mundane, it soon becomes clear that its no long term solution. You always got to go back and face reality eventually. Doesn't matter how much of lucy there is to go around either, lol.

Been thinking of joining the army lately, I hate the thought of fighting some propaganda war for the elite's. But I'd thrive off that direction and routine. With direction I can pull amazing amounts of energy from myself. But left to my own, I don't even have the motivation to do the dishes or mow the stupid lawn, lol.

Travel, get some perspective.
I been to Eastern Europe 6 times, Slovakia, Germany, Czech Republic - lived in Prague for a year, England twice, I lived in Bournemouth for 3 months, HongKong witch I absolutely disliked, And Australia. I went to Eastern Europe for a girl, That failed so I decided to travel to Slovakia and (Germany 3 times) from Prague, I went to England for another girl, That failed, So I traveled more and explored England, then HongKong where I could not stand the smog. And I almost made another mistake of going to Mexico for another girl but pulled out and found a Sicilian instead in Australia.

Traveling is not the issue, What Im looking for is a action packed life that is not mundane or repetitive. Im looking for Answers and truth that no religion so far has been able to answer, Im seeking a escape from the mundane reality. Im seeking a higher state of thinking and a reality that is not mundane.

Someone spiritual once said to me when you have learned to appreciate life only then will the truth be shown. That many be true to a degree or you may just be high on blissfulness. The very social fabrication of society is designed in such a way to cause stress and a negative approach to life. This you can not changed. I did a experiment a few years ago based around positive approaching, And I learned the more positive you become, the more negative you attract. It follows very similar the universal law of magnetism. What i am trying to say is it's very hard to appreciate life when you have bills and negativity that alter your emotions and outlook on life. Witch brings me back to the mundane life. The mundane life apart from boring me is its just a means to an end to make some one else rich (Boss, Tax man) and then having stress involved cause you struggle from week to week and you know a 200 k retirement in this day and age will get you about maybe 5 years if your lucky and you own your own house. It's a little hard to stay positive. Sometimes I wish Aliens would attack earth so human society can come together as one, and stop suppressing evolution.

there are way too many awesome things to do on this world that if you are truly bored with life, you clearly are bot seeking out the good stuff. Go sy diving, scuba diving, rock climbing, hiking, taking lessons to fly a helicopter, join an outreach program and find joy in helping others, volunteer at an animal shelter, skating, bicycling, do a marathon or even triathlon, race cars at the closest drag strip, go fishing with your close friends, go fishing with strangers on a charter boat, try your luck at some texas Hold em at your local casino, go speed dating for #s and giggles, start an NGO or non-profit for a cause you want to make an impact on in your community ...

dude I havnt even gone six inches from the tip of the iceberg. There are way too many things to do in your own community, let alone the rest of the world to the point that if you are bored, it is by your own design. You are in a career path that should pay really well, none of the things I mentioned will be financially distant for you.

Go to Burningman. You won't find what you want but you will find what you need.

The fact that you've already had such flat-out amazing experiences in traveling and remain discontent kinda floors me and has the bonus of deflating any pipe dreams I have of doing that. Thanks for giving that all a shot though.

Ok. On the traveling perspective and keeping in mind you want excitement, I have given thought to experiencing the more dangerous areas in the world, because hell, why not? Without joining the service, you might instead to try it from a journalism perspective. Making blogs/vlogs about your trysts with some of the more highly charged areas of the world. No, you wouldn't be the first one to play around with this theory, but it might give you that thrilling edge you're seeking.
There's potential to make income for that through videos or books you could write. Since you're no stranger to travel and appear to have the means to do so, it might be worth giving it a try.

I understand the tendency to be pessimistic about life and what constitutes a regular, droll existence through jobs.
I think a lot of us here like the thoughts of something extreme happening in the world to make it a more interesting place to live. I know I have daydreamed about a zombie apocalypse many a time.

One of the most difficult aspects of life that I've faced is it's inevitable message that "It's always just THIS."
Nothing REALLY changes. Tomorrow there will be another headline that's similar to one you've seen before. Another small catastrophe or storm or criminal action going down somewhere. And the presidential race is starting again and that's a great reference to how the same everything is. When you get the big picture of how this ball keeps rolling around and around and around, it's incredibly overwhelming and disillusioning.

Life's what you make it.

If you want a mundane reality, then that's your affair. I have done the "get educated, get a career, get married, have kids" mundanity you describe, but you know what? My life is anything but mundane.

My advice. Throw "games developing" in the bin and do something that will make a difference. That'll drag you from your negativity.

Don't underestimate the value of a good lover, a bottle of wine, and a nice stretch of beach.
