“A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing. And when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and, seeing a better country, sets sail. Progress is the realization of Utopias.”
Utopia and the only way that it can be achieved…
Utopia – a model of the ideal society, creating an image of an ideal society.
Many have been attracted to the idea of a Utopia. Every idea had proposed various different visions of an ideal Utopia. The Communists and Democrats pushed forward a vision of utopia, which proved to be only but empty promises.
“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”
-Alexis de Tocqueville
Equality is not what satisfies man and cannot sate his fantasies or desire. Desire cannot be sated, desire is like a fire, and no matter how much you feed this fire it will not quell. In fact the more you feed this fire the more stronger and sophisticated will ones desires become.
Utopia can only be achieved in a society where the various levels and different forms of mans desire can be manifested and fulfilled by all. These desires include but are not limited to sadistic/chaotic/competitive/tyrannical/warmongering desires. The reason why there is conflict in this world is because man strives to shape and manipulate our shared reality into his/her image. Mans vision and desire are always conflicting each other, and that is the root of instability in a society which is what prevents Utopia. So the question arises, what can give stability to a society while at the same time keeping intact the peoples freedom to fulfill their infinite and various desires without consequences?
A light of hope for a utopia shines through when one looks into the video game industry and its inevitable destination. Video games? Why video games? How can a simulation possibly bring us to a Utopia? Most of you probably have connected the dots and have seen the big picture. Those of you who have not are probably not big fans of video games or don't understand the essence of the game. What makes a video game successful is it's ability to immerse the gamer. The final destination and one goal of gamers and the video game industry is to create simulated realities that are as close to our own reality as possible. In fact if this mimicking of our reality will be achieved in simulated realities then this simulated reality won't just be equal to our reality but even more enhanced. For those of who have seen the development and growth of video games this truth is long realized.
What is the great advantage of a video game/virtual reality and how is it going to make a utopia possible? It gives a user the ability to fulfill their fantasy/desire without facing consequences in this reality or causing any disturbance or hindrance to any other persons reality. That is the key to creating a utopia, a world where all men can manifest their fantasies and desires without causing instability or hindrance of any kind to their shared reality and society.
Now for those people who do not share the opinion that, “Life is a game that is meant to keep us entertained” this idea and vision of a utopia will seem repulsive and abhorrent. To those people all I can say is that they do not understand the Creator and the perspective that he reveals for the world and man.
