About James

Bio

There are a lot of things about me. Some of them is that I find truth in the things that complicate our world. while others I am looking for more information. Even though I look for more ways to increase what charges me, what keeps me alive, I still look for truth. Some say that I have disabilities, such as high-level autism, ADHD, and OCD, but what is that to me? It matters not, and I mind not, let others think whatever they want but it won't change who I am. I am a man in search of ways to help, to uplift others. I may not look the part, however, I can be the part if I wanted to.

Is happiness an emergent property?
We control how we feel. We are people that run on "Bio-Energy" an electric form of energy that runs the body. We as people are able to feel happy whenever we are around certain people while we generate other kinds of emotions around different kinds of people.

We spend 3 billion hours a week as a planet playing videogames. Is it worth it? How could it be MORE worth it?
A video game to me is a world with many in-worlds in itself. To explain, think of you driving a virtual car, with a lot of advancments, going somewhere around 150 MPH, and then you crash right into a wall. What happened? You crashed. What you have done to prevent the problem? Take evasive action. Was it unavoidable? Possibly. O.K. that's find and dandy for your virtual car, but what about your real car? same situation, but your car isn't pumped up to the point where you can go blazing down the road at 150 MPH, but your about to hit a wall, what do you do? You have what is called a "Pause Second", I call it, a moment in time where you brain switches from what happened to the virtual car to your real car and the body automatically moves to survive. You may get a few scratches here and there, along with a insane amount of money taken away, but your still alive. How video game apply to us, is that someone made up of 1s and 0s you used showed you what to do. I have come from a family that believes that video games are a waste of time, I say otherwise. To answer the question from the main post on the gamers side, is that they are who they are. You can tell them your favorite game that you played the whole time and gain from it and they won't even care one bit, which I think is pretty harsh, but it's just them. To hit the core of the question is the story, it's like watching a movie and playing at the same time but while at it, expecting something big to happen. That is another thing, the expect something to happen, either you make it happen or you don't, that is what the games have taught me. when non-gamers ask me "So what did you get out of the game?" The first couple of tries I was stunned, I just told them a story, what happened, and what I got in the game. Now latter on, I brush them off by ignoring them, and I share what I have learned freely, for example, Bioshock, it shows what happens when people grow too strong which leads to their utter destruction.
