Life, The Meta-Game


“It is this obsession with the word as a space where we find ourselves
and share our memory….”
-Jaume Plensa

Words create context.

Jane McGonigal’s book “Reality is Broken” is a treatise on the power of virtual and alternative reality games. The unique language of the gaming world artfully influences the player experience. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide are engaged in shifting their experience of life through games.

It feels like a good idea to learn the language, connect virtual and alternative realities and experience blissful productivity and epic wins in the meta-game of life!

“Power-Up” – a capacity or new power.
“Level- Up” – a step up in abilities and skill level.
“Challenge” – an individual goal.
“Quest” – a team challenge.
“Blissful Productivity” – the state of timeless FLOW.
“Epic Win” – a thrilling experience or exhilarating accomplishment.

FLOW, (blissful productivity) a necessary state for winning in the meta-game of life.

Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi asks, “What makes a life worth living?” Noting that money cannot make us happy, he looks to those who find pleasure and lasting satisfaction in activities that bring about a state of “flow.”
