Woo-Woo: A reader was wondering what I thought of this idea. Of course, you need to know what an “escape room” is, if you don’t already know.
“An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles and riddles using clues, hints and strategy to complete the objectives at hand. Players are given a set time limit to unveil the secret plot which is hidden within the rooms. Escape rooms are inspired by “escape-the-room“–style video games. Games are set in a variety of fictional locations, such as prison cells, dungeons and space stations, and usually the various puzzles and riddles themselves follow the theme of the room.”
Here lately, escape rooms are evolving into interesting “mixed rooms” – some of which include a murder mystery as well as food, drinks, and who knows where the evolution will end.
But, the point is, the “escape room” is a neat metaphor for where the world is.
Think of it this way: We are all “in the room” – that’s clear since the furthest we have gotten so far (if you believe the escape room narrative) is “the moon.”
Even those few who escaped that far had to return to the “room” here on Earth to get fresh food, water, and air. Side of gravity with that, too, please.
Like the “escape room” there’s something – likely in plain sight – that most people miss.
Moreover, it is likely something cultural because when you study escape rooms, you’ll find there are certain mindsets, ways of seeing, thinking, and following logical pathing that work better than others.
In fact, the logical pathing most of the civilized world is trained in now involves looking at a screen 20-inches from your nose and doing things like swipe this and tap that.
Here’s a shocker (and seriously, this isn’t apparent to a lot of people- impossible as it sounds): Tapping and Swiping is NOT going to get us out of the present Room (Earth). It probably won’t even HELP.
That’s because whether you call it Great Evil, the Nahkash, Devil, Azazel, dungeon master, PTB, Elites, Banksters, or Rothschilds…everyone has a model… it’s NOT IN A PHONE OR DROID.
This isn’t a HUGE thought for this hour on a Monday, but it’s something better to think about today than the same-old same-o.
Organizing a Search Party
If you’;; acquiesce to the idea “OK, so Earth is an Escape Room…” the next step is to come up with “How to Solve for an Exit” before game time is up.
(Game time is up when you die, and to keep the room exciting, everyone’s time’s up will happen at unpredictable moments.)
Since I’ve been reading on mudras again – the Indian discipline of finger power signing, which purports to be Reality slightly through hand signals – the topic came up around 3 AM Saturday morning as either one of us could sleep.
“Do you think it’s possible that some big breakthrough is just waiting to be found – hidden on some part of our bodies?
I mean think of it! What if you could touch the little toe of your left foot to your right elbow! That’s something that would almost certainly never happen, right? But maybe – and this is just a far out idea sure – maybe when that Religious Fellow was off wandering around the desert for 40-days a couple of thousand years ago he got bored and connected two unlike parts of his body! Can you see how that could complete a circuit at some cosmic level and then bring forth this outpouring of all that followed in his life after that? Amazing thought, huh?”
“…go back to sleep…”
“Then think of all the breakthroughs that could happen between humans. I’ve been thinking about that, too.
Take you and me. We’re simpatico…so what keeps us from doing something like the Vulcan mind-meld from StarTrek? What is it about the nervous system that let’s consciousness level the brain – travel down your arm to – let’s say your hand – and then back up to the brain again? Hit your hand with a hammer…and you’ll feel it…your CONSCIOUSNESS moves to the pain. So why can’t it move further?
Is it possible that there are different body parts – ones that aren’t usually connected, even between consenting adults – which are build so that consciousness can flow from one person – into another and back again?
Think how long we’ve been alive – almost 150 years between the two of us – and never in all that time have I heard a word of research on this. Not one!
Maybe it’s hidden in some non-obvious way. Like the little toe to the right elbow…you know…statistically improbable, right?
When was the last time, for example, that you put your left kneecap behind my left earlobe, for example? Or, have I ever placed you big toe on my L-4/L-5 spinal segment? See what I mean?
Why, telepathy could be right there waiting to be discovered!”
“Would telepathy wake me up?…Leave me out of this. Go back to sleep…”
OK, so the conversation was maybe a bit onesided. But, and this is weird, like the book I just wrote on the lack of continuous broad-spectrum wave interaction research from DC to daylight, is it possible that because of curious cultural blinders we have missed actually doing a computer-generated COMPLETE inter-human connectivity study?
The idea is, if nothing else, novel.
And given how we will all be watching the silly numbers run our net worth up and down this week, it seems like it’s a useful question to keep handy in case some mental-processor clicks come up free, with nothing to keep them busy.
I’ll get to work on the algorithm for this right away.
Hmmm…Test #739: Place right ring finger in left nostril. Test #740: Place right pinky finger in left nostril.
This could take a while. But if I get swept up in a cloud and get tempted, I’ll try and get some pictures.
Meanwhile, enjoy your time in the other escape room (work) today and…
Write when you get rich,
OOPS. Almost forgot. Time for Test #741: Remove tongue from cheek.
