The sentence in the title may ruffle some feathers but in this post I’m hoping to do a deep dive in my approach to the idea that this blog is built on. If I’m going to do what I’m after, it’s important to explain the reasoning behind it.
I wholeheartedly expect people to brush this off as child like ideation. A desire to escape; and to be fair – I wouldn’t blame them. It’s a very logical conclusion to reach based on the typical understanding of rpg games/worlds and it seems very silly. It may also be treated with a sense of naivety/contempt as it may seem to downplay the seriousness of reality (ie “there are no second lives here”, “a fuckup can cost you big time”). I assure you, this is not my intention.
This is merely a holistic attempt at re framing reality in an age of declining religion, increased media pressures, and overall sense of despair and take back some of the mental narrative in a context that youth understand. It is not to downplay reality – but to truly thrive in the rules given in an objective manner. To not get hung up over the meaning of existence (unless you choose to pursue that quest line) and to simply, play the game. To be able to do that with this philosophy seeped into your bones I suspect will lead to incredible results (time will tell if this is true, as I myself am still at the beginning of hammering down what all this is about).
