Is Life Just a Gaming Experience?

Is Life Just a Gaming Experience

Ian Brown/Wake Up World

When walking a spiritual path through life, it becomes apparent that this reality is not as ‘real’ as it once appeared. Have you ever considered that life in this dimension is a hologram, a matrix, or some type of game? Is that really possible? Is the purpose of life for a soul to find its way to the next level of being – to Ascend – just like playing a game is about ascending to the next level?

Our perception dictates a lot of what we interpret, and people interpret the game of life in many different ways. Just as a game has certain limitations and rules, so do we in this limited third dimension: our vision and hearing are restricted to a very small fraction of the visible and audible spectrums; we have a limited number of years in the game before our play expires; and we pick up certain traits that handicap us, such as limiting belief systems that we inherit or are taught when we first start playing the game.

Gaming has evolved significantly over the past few decades, and similarly, people are playing all different generations of games in the game of life. Let us have a brief look at gaming and compare that to the ‘game of life’ and our quest for spiritual ascension.

A Brief Outline of the Evolution of Gaming

In the early days of gaming, there were mechanical games such as pinball, where the aim was simply to get the highest score on the machine to secure your fame (until the next person came along and beat your score, of course). There are flashing lights and sounds to maintain interest, but the aim was just to get the highest score of all people playing the machine.

The next evolution came when mechanical video games were eclipsed by video games. The concept of levels was added, where each level was generally harder to get through than the previous. Typically, in early video games, each person that played the game was the sameobject or character, and navigated or shot their way sequentially through each level. It was necessary to progress through levels to maintain playing, but the aim was to get the highest score, and each player had a very similar experience of the game.

The single character game gave way to the next progression, where the player could select from a number of avatars, and could customise that avatar to personalize it. The landscape of the games grew significantly and became more complex, meaning that just advancing to the next level or getting a high score became less significant, and the game became about experiencing the length and breadth of each level. The complexity of the environment of the game ensured that each player had a unique experience, so comparing one player with another based on highest score or the level achieved at the end of the game became somewhat insignificant.
