BTW one of the main things that will quickly become evident upon my website here, as it develops, is my metaphoric use of language.
For someone who comes from a background in building online communities around video games, I will be using lot of MMORPG language to express my current work around vertical development in a metaphoric way.
For example, if I’m talking about “levelling up” in life, what I’m referring to is a person going through a substantial transitory period of growth and development, thus evolving and transforming their level of consciousness in the process.
So a lot of what I’m expressing here might sound like I’m literally trying to gamify life but I’m not (as I dislike that concept). Rather I’m using gaming terminology to help explain how life already functions like a simulated game (due to how we perceive reality) with the psychology of vertical development as a way of understanding how we try to “level up” within this “game.”
