After watching an interesting movie about the good and evils of mankind. I began to think of Minecraft for some reason. As my mind tends to wander about searching for truth in life. I was wondering what inspirations one can take out of the Mine craft experience. Both Multi and single, creative and survival. I’ve played for a while and I enjoy the openness of the system. A metaphor for life really, like mincraft life is endless with seemingly endless possibilities. Only limited to the system you set for yourself. Seeing how one can “MOD” the game to their liking so can you “change the view” of the way you experience the world. You can make up your own with enough ambition, or follow the work of others.
In Mine Craft you can find both sides of humanity. While you make a masterpiece. Other will come along to grief, alter, or criticize your work. You can create a community of friends. Or spread anger and death (PVP). While the community is digital the people are real, the feelings no less real. If I wanted to move left so does my avatar.
(Avatar)-(A digital persona of the will and heart of a person.)
If MineCraft is seen as a reflection of the collective soul of those who use it. Then it will be a game that can live on forever. But remember all those who play. It is a reflection of the potential good and a source of unimpeded darker things in the hearts of all.
I hope this topic moves you in a way you had not felt.
All that I can say, is thank you. Seeing this post helped me make it through a tough time in my life by making Minecraft a sanctuary, where the avatar truly is the digital form of the very essence of each and every one of us. Bless you and may your life be full of joy and fulfillment.
