It’s been a while since I last talked about the idea of mindfulness and the idea of the three levels of self-awareness. I have a few ideas going in the right direction and I hope you will too. I know that we don’t have to do all of the things we do now, but it is definitely OK to give ourselves permission to do a little bit of mindful living.
I see two different ways that you can take this. The first is the short-sighted version: “I’m gonna take a walk and I’m not gonna stop,” and the second is the long-sighted version: “I’m gonna get a glass of wine, and then I’m gonna walk home and I’m not gonna stop.
The short-sighted version would be something like, “Im bored and I’m going to do this thing where you are going to tell me to stop doing something, blah, blah, blah.” That, while it would work, is not the way to go. In fact, doing it in this way would only serve to make you feel even more bored. The long-sighted version would be, “I have a great idea for a new game.
You can’t really tell if im bored, or if i’m just really excited about this game (or my new game). And you’re right, there’s nothing wrong with thinking about something. So if you’re thinking about something, you might want to write it down, and then think about what you should write it down about. In fact, I’m a sucker for the idea of writing down a good idea.
Good ideas should be written down. They should also be put into action. If you don’t like your idea, you can always write it down and keep it in a drawer or a file cabinet and forget about it. The point is that good ideas don’t just magically materialize out of thin air. You have to do something about them. By writing down ideas, they can be put into practice.
We all have ideas of what we want our lives to be like. A lot of these ideas are so grandiose they are impossible to implement. But if you can put those ideas into practice, you can create a pretty amazing life. Most people put ideas into action when they get them through a process called “execution.” That is, they set and achieve goals for themselves and then use those goals to build something.
In the case of Deathloop, you do get to kill a bunch of Visionaries. However, the real payoff from this game is that you can kill a bunch of people with nothing more than a pen and paper.
The game’s real promise is that you can kill a bunch of people with very little work and no thought whatsoever.
It’s an intriguing idea. A “killable” person is one who has a certain level of skill for a certain amount of time. But what really makes a “killable” person is not simply that they can kill. It is that they can kill someone who is likely to suffer a certain amount of harm. In a way, it’s the same idea that makes the killing a terrorist or a child a “killable” person.
The problem is that there are too many innocent people being killed in the world. If we just made the killable ones a little bit more likely to suffer harm, then we could really start to change things. But that’s not how things work. That’s not how the game works. It just doesn’t.
