I mentioned in a recent video I made – The Debunker Showdown, that I was interested in pushing forward technology that was thought based, so that we would be able to think our commands into the computer, and watch them happen right in front of us.
Today in particular I’m especially feeling that desire, for several reasons.
The first, is that one of my best friends Marie just moved in with Ray and I. She’s been absolutely incredible in supporting us in getting Panic to Freedom moving, as well as cleaning up all sorts of old mess that’s been lying around and creating a huge energy-strain on all of us in the house.
So along with all of her books, crystals, computers and what have you, she also brought in like 40 of the best xbox games that are out there!
If you didn’t know, I practically grew up on video games. I love em! And if you sit me in front of a game that was made with heart by a team who LOVES what they do, you won’t be able to get me off the couch for a VERY long time.
Having said that, I also have hardly played any games in 2 years now ever since i started traveling. That world got bumped to the back seat of my life while I explored spirituality and the connections between all of us.
And yet, there’s something magical about just jumping into a world you know nothing about to run around save the world from a horde of angry pigs, or opening up space-time portals for you and your friends to escape an evil robotic factory hell-bent on crushing you…for science!
I truly believe that with the right implementation, Video-games can be one of the most important transition points for us as a species. We can use the examples of the interactive stories we create to move ourselves forward, to push new technologies, and gamily our world!
Speaking of which, if you’ve never seen Extra Credits before, this is probably one of the most incredible video-series out there! I would love to work with these guys one day to make some really amazing new technology

Recently I imposed a rule of “Zelda Mondays” where I would play through Skyward Sword for an hour or two every monday, after releasing the new Pair O’ Dime Shift or Spirit Science video, kind of like a reward for finishing a new video. (By the way, SS22_3 – The God Particles is in production, it’s just taking a lot longer than 1 week to make… so it’ll be out next monday hopefully, unless it takes 2)
BUT NOW i’ve got to sit and look at a huge pile of Xbox games, from the full Mass Effect Series, a Sega Genesis Collection, Bioshock, Final Fantasy 13… My Goodness! Balance is going to be SO HARD!! Especially if i’m going to be finishing the new spirit science, as well as moving the whole Spirit Kingdom project forward too!
But as I love to say, Hard is just not knowing how to do something yet. I get to learn how now, and it’s going to be a blast.
And ONE DAY I will finish a zelda game!
Even if i sound like i’m complaining, i’m really just having fun. I love it, this is part of what makes life fun. I’ll have to learn to find a balance here, I still want to enjoy being a 22 year old kid, despite having this whole ‘I’ve got to move the world forward seriously!” feeling… which is kind of a constant thing, you know?
I actually feel slightly compelled to go on to write like 500 more pages about intention and why play video games in the first place (lots of people do it to escape, rather than to grow and learn), and i’m also feeling like this is a good place to wrap up this blog, and move into what’s next.
To bring this full circle, why do we need thought based computing?
Isn’t it obvious?
In the time it took me to write all this, with a thought-based computer I could have animated an entire video, posted it on youtube, wrote this entire blog, posted it on Facebook, and then be getting comfy to sit down on the couch and find out what Mass Effect is really all about…
…and then i could do THAT in a fraction of a second too because i can just download the game in my head and have the entire experience as if it’s actually ME, not just a guy sitting at a TV.
Instead, i’ve got a video to go make
Think about it, with more advanced technology, we can compress far more information and “happening” into a unit of what we call “time”. Time becomes more irrelevant, because we can do an infinite amount MORE in the “time” that we have, during a single day for instance.
Okay, onto Spirit Science!
We are One,
