"Create Your Own Reality" Videogames?

So it's no secret that the brain is a magnificent masterpiece. What is even more magnificent is the way we are learning to understand and control it. Tim Jarvis wrote a delicious article in November's issue of O Magazine which examines how our understanding of the brain is already affecting the way we shop and is likely to help us determine the best potential romantic partners in the future. It delves into the potential to possibly determine whether a 7-year old will one day become a criminal and the ethics of how this might affect our justice system. For me, the most intriguing part of this article was a small additional section called "The Neurocaster" where other predictions were made about how brain science may change the way we live.

Here is my absolute favorite:


"Current technologies (such as video games) will merge with future ones (such as those involving neural feedback), so gamers might wear EEG-type caps that read their brainwaves and pick up their emotions. Conceivably, story lines would move forward in real time, the plot changing based on each person's responses, says Zack Lynch, managing director of NeuroInsights, a market research and investment advisory firm."

Sound anything like the Law of Attraction to you? It is no secret that our thoughts create reality, and more and more people are beginning to understand this. I got chills when I read this. It was like I read myself inside out or something. Isn't this what I am learning to do right now?? Isn't this really how our "reality" actually already is? The technological wizards are creating software and computers to function as reality already does, only most people are rarely aware of it! People already play Second Life on the internet where they live as total other beings with different names, genders, and lifestyles. They interact with other such "beings" inside this new world involved in relationships and careers. One day this may be integrated with the technology to interact with what you focus on. That day isn't so far away as this article written by Mike Steer (CNN in London, England) expains,

This technology already picks up over 30 different expressions, emotions, and actions! Jarvis says,

"If we can interpret basic control thoughts now, it isn't far off where we'll be able to interpret more complex thoughts, even potentially things you're not consciously thinking of. If we can now do it in a non-invasive fashion, it probably won't be long before we can read these things from across the room."

Is this the next step in our souls' evolution?

It is no secret that mindful awareness enhances the results of exercise, healing, and learning. And we know that people can literally change the composition of their physical brain through meditation. Our minds are entirely more powerful than we ever want to give them credit for. I am all for popping on a headset and playing with this type of technology, but this is all the more reason to hone my skills as a Visionary Fairy RIGHT NOW in this "reality" and let the games begin!

The Falling Leaves...

Well I have just returned from a beautiful weekend in Boston where I saw two beautiful souls get married. It was truly one of the most amazing ceremonies I have ever had the privelige of experiencing. My roommates and I took the chinatown bus from NYC to Boston since we travel in style. It actually wasn't all that bad since we all had our own seats and when I opened my eyes every now and again I had gorgeous leaves to look at out the window! It's a perfect time to get out there and see them! There's still plenty of green surrounding the delcious reds, golds and purples. It is incredible how beautiful leaves get at the end of their lives. I find it only slightly unfortunate that we humans get all wrinkly and start to deteriorate physically as we age. Perhaps this is all the more justification for how much more important it is to continue to nurture our souls as their beauty is what truly has the potential to get more splendid with every passing year.

Paper of Value

I am loving that this artist is passing out $0 Dollar Bills! Where can I get one? They may as well mean what our regular bills mean, since it's all just paper anyway...

Short Story Long...

Well hello and welcome to "A Lil' Somethin' Somethin'". This is a blog inspired by my friend Rachel's "A Little Each Day" who inspired Dennis' "A Little Crazy Everyday" as well as many more. I wrangled with a title for this blog and aside from everything I wanted already having been selected, I was a little unsure as to whether or not I would be able to actually stick with "a little" each day, as I tend to be rather long-winded. Nor did I want to be brutally honest about my need to expound by calling it what it might often end up being since no one would want to read it. Plus, who the hell knows what this'll be? I'm just going to wait and see...right along with you, and at the very least I'll give you.....a lil' somethin' somethin'. (pronounced somewhat like "sumpin' sumpin'").
