Planetary gaming - Universe gaming - Asset stripper design limitations.

is that all there is ... to a space game?
So, games like Eve Online, Elite Dangerous, Dual Universe, Star Citizen and No Man's Sky... what are they hoping to achieve, gameplaywise?

They're all set in space ... and SPACE IS VERY verrrrry BIG.

To strip the fuck out of the newly-discovered universe. Even the mostly-positive No Man's Sky is an evil asset strip of every innocent planet a player finds.

Same with Star Citizen, it's a fucking ugly mess of rocket fuel and quantum fuel and oxygen-farming and assets to PROFIT from. This kind of OPEN UNIVERSE with LACK OF CREATIVE POSITIVITY makes a true-sandbox-gamer like myself ill. Same with ALL OF THEM...

All of these space games are suffering from this basic ego-maniacal design-limitation, the accrual of stolen asset. All's we're doing is teaching the kids of tomorrow how to FUCK EACH OTHER OVER for a few silver coins in a bag. Sorry, that's the wrong thing to be teaching the kids of tomorrow. It's one of the major reasons I got out of the games industry in the first place, the amorality of what we're teaching the player.

We are never going to be allowed off this planet broadcasting our blood-hunger and profit-insanity into the stars like this. It's silly, stop it now.

PS: and probably the most important part, "Re-design Star Citizen from the ground up," so that it becomes a simple (arcadey) game once more. Star Citizen is not a 'sim' ffs, but it can be hacked into shape as a well-though-out finishable product that will allow YOU THE PLAYER to take control of your gaming universe.

Wallace Thornhill - The A-Z of Electric Universe - forthcoming new book...

eleven years ago, (American mythologist) David Talbott and (Australian scientist) Wallace Thornhill brought out their seminal and eponymous book on the Electric Universe.

The thing about Wal and David's co-authored EU-book is it drew together mythology and science in a totally unique way that (iff valid-ified) will TOTALLY REWRITE how Science looks at fundamental issues like The Age of the Solar System, how it was formed, and what our Alien Sky might have looked like to early man - with illustrations peppered throughout written/carved history to back it up.
I just got word from Wal that (while this 2007-published book won't be updated for a more Electric Universe-friendly audience/academic community) he is working on a new book he's tentatively titled THE A-Z OF ELECTRIC UNIVERSE.

Excited as me? Not even possible, my friend....

Electric Universe - charge exchange reaction - outer planets of the solar system

Prior to starting today's blog, I'd like to note that, "Iff electric boundary layers in plasma sheaths of these star-forming Birkeland Currents actually exist," then it safely demonstrates how and where planets orbit their star. Plasma sheath layers = orbits, and should become more off-plane as the outer planets are allowed to orbit a 'fatter' orbit potential in the solar polar vector.

Q: can large electric fields power Jupiter's super-massive auroras?



...of the seven episodes out of a planned 'ten reasons the universe is electric' this might be the most important one yet... it really makes the case for An Electric Universe that modern science is SIMPLY IGNORING... at the moment.

Time to watch, again or for the first time,  David Talbott's 2013 lecture Exposing the Myths of Settled Science.

art - mike philbin - black, black, paint it black...

yeah, I know, "Black's the new black," all over again. Swings and roundabouts. Once more round the sun, dear art friends.

But here's what started it.


And here's the most recent Black'd Work, with the addition of metallic silver conversing with metallic gold.
