A lot of what is called mindfulness is actually a form of self-awareness. We are paying attention to the way we feel, what we’re thinking, and what we’re experiencing at the time. It’s a pretty easy self-awareness to develop in your head, but it’s a much harder one when it comes to actually making it into reality.
So, when a person is feeling good and they are experiencing pleasant physical sensations, that is generally how they are experiencing themselves. When we are feeling bad, we are generally not experiencing that pleasant physical sensation. That’s why we call it self-awareness.
Our goal in Life is to learn to see the world as it is, rather than just to feel it. We are not able to understand the world as it is, but we are able to know how to take that into our own hands. I say this because I think we all have a little bit of the same basic basic problem. If we don’t, and we don’t know how to make it into reality, then we don’t know how we’re going to live.
The thing is, all of the characters we’ve ever seen all have had a little bit of the same basic problem. You can’t live on Earth without having a little bit of that physical sense of being in the world. The thing is, if I were to play with your computer and write this story, I couldnt imagine how it would feel. Because I am a computer, I can’t even make sense of it at this point.
You might say, “well, you are a man, and the world is made up of men.” My immediate response would be “I dont know if you know what I am talking about. The idea of men is that you have to be able to look yourself in the eye. This is not the case on Deathloop. In Deathloop we dont even have a man-shaped hole in the world. We do have a man-shaped hole in the world, but it is not you.
In this world, Deathloop is a prison, but in real life, it has become a playground in which we play, or at least pretend to play, every day. At its core, it’s a game of tag. Every day, Deathloop has its own unique rules, rules which are essentially just a system by which the gang members, criminals, the Visionaries, etc. figure out who they can get the most of the day.
In Deathloop, the only thing stopping the gang from killing or being killed is their own incompetence. The gang is constantly on the run, but death is an ever present threat. The only thing keeping them alive is the fact that everyone else is dying, too.
Deathloop is the most powerful version of the game, but it has a certain amount of problems: it can’t get much better than this (myself included). The game is designed to be interesting and the only way to get the gang to kill or be killed is to have to get a death-prevention system installed. Every time the gang needs to do a death-prevention, the person who killed them gets a death-prevention.
The problem here is that the death-prevention system is very easy to install and you can play Deathloop in one of two modes: “In-game” and “Offline.” Your character in the offline mode is still dead, but you can access the death-prevention system as if you were playing the game, so you can kill everyone you see with the in-game mode.
