Deconstructing ‘The Game of Life’
Updated: Nov 19
How can you play, or hope to defend yourself, when you were never even told the rules?

My Life is Not a Game
“In short, people I’ve known who treat life as a game tend to be manipulative, selfish, and destructive and this is no accident because they have simplified the complexity of existence into something that provides them with short term gains at the expense of others.” —Moses Wolfenstein
A PERSONAL QUEST:
To Critique & Dismantle the Killing Games
Well, you know, personally I love great movies, most art, poetry and books laden with stories written with the life-blood of the author’s heart. Love ‘em. But. I have serious difficulties with the analogy of life being a game.
Being deeply disinterested in competition, one of my most difficult and challenging missions here has been to deconstruct competitive society.
It’s been an amazing and mind-blowing process to personally experience someone challenging and competing with me over the past decade.
With what I eventually realised was an elite coven behind them, constantly egging them on.
Did the higher powers in the Akashic circle think I should have a taste of very real competition to learn and then teach how to deal with it in all its unwanted glory. Unable to be ignored when thrust so harshly in your face by a competition-obsessed world.
Or was it actually The Hunger Games being re-enacted? It really felt that way at times.
Or even Highlander: ‘There can be only one!’
A Fight Club with no rules
No one ever told me what was happening.
In retrospect this seems to have been part of some bizarre and devilish Fight Club type game strategy. In which a (fairly) innocent being is thrown to the demons and predators for lunch.
Without any immediate means of protection.
Yes, I was thrown into a dusty modern arena filled to the brim with fire and smoke, deadly snakes and demons — blindfolded — with no knowledge of where I was, no map, no rules, and no idea of what was coming at me. Or just what the expectations were of me, and what it was all about.
It’s absolutely true.
No one let me in on what was going on and why I was being relentlessly attacked, hacked, smeared, slandered, stolen from and regularly invited to die.
I had no idea what they were competing with me for.
Over time it appeared to be a massive parasitic attack designed to take over my life and replace me with the parasite.
How could this be any Akashic contract I wrote?
I now seriously doubt this.
In between lifetimes, when in my own higher power, I may have thought I was up to it — overcoming and then teaching about it. And possibly agreed to go through with this.
But I find this very, very unlikely, knowing what I now know.
Fake Soul Contracts
It’s very clear by now that many of us have been forced into fake soul contracts we had no knowledge or memory of signing or agreeing to.
This is one of the truths that needs to be broadcast in a world of lies.
To my living soul it’s been the equivalence of a hellish nightmare, seemingly endless in duration, as life on earth often seems.
And incredibly exhausting, deeply debilitating at times, and very wearing on mind, body and soul.
And keeping a cool head throughout admittedly wasn’t fully achieved…
Before I came here this time, I believe I decided that as part of the work of compassion many of us have come here to do, myself included, was in holding competitive culture up to the light and really demonstrating the damage that can be done.
And in that contract, I apparently had to personally experience it, yet again, on a deeply visceral and soul level. A task not to be taken on lightly.
It didn’t matter that I don’t believe in and deeply dislike competitions. I’ve personally experienced in this lifetime being confronted with a challenge so fiercely life-threatening there was no way to ignore it or walk away.
My beliefs were over-ridden by the violence in the hearts of others, and my ability to fulfil my life mission was destroyed for a very long time.
Bringing it all to Light
Until I brought to light the very powerful spiritual tools that enable first confronting the demons of this world head-on, and then rising above.
The enormous roadblocks in my path created by those who had a clear agenda to prevent my messages getting out, didn’t always actually speak to me about ME.
Although I have issues, for sure.
But the constant blocking of my path by vampiric strigoi and demonic or ignorant entities clothed in human skin, speaks more of global resistance to experiencing existence on a whole new level.
And also to a massively widespread cultural blindness insisting on seeing what is good as evil and what is evil as good.

There are a number of alternate futures
And these are still within all our grasp - and we’re all stepping through the portals as we now speak.
So — how about a world of enormous personal freedom? But do people even know the true meaning of freedom?
A world where any dispute ends in a win-win no matter what.
And a world where meditation from the very beginning of life in turn brings an emotionally calm person into maturity, with self-control and an open-hearted approach to life in all its challenging diversity.
What if we took that curve-turn away from a hyper-capitalist, empty-hearted and empty-eyed consumerist society. And stepped up a level into a warmer and more tender reality of social harmony.
Where communication involving dominance and subservience did not exist.
A place where every child has many loving parents, and when older choose their own path, what’s right for them.
A classless society where social justice and respect for each individual is written in each and every heart.

So, this place I describe is where I want to live.
I have a larger picture to paint of this, but here’s a starting place.
Meanwhile the flying monkeys and the sociopathic hive try to perpetuate the destructive ‘game of life’ and draw back in those of us who’ve walked away.
But it’s not just a fun childish game. No. It’s actually a game of life and death.
A game where for the antagonists, seemingly anything goes.
Black magic, technological surveillance and voyeuristic hacking, theft, lies, slandering and reputation smearing and other unlovely permutations.
This all, of course, usually results in significant loss of health and emotional well-being with often deadly consequences.
It’s a serious matter and not to be taken lightly.

The game of win and lose
It’s actually, in reality, a game of life and death.
With greatest respect to all besieged people and cultures needing to maintain their ancient warrior abilities to survive in this predatory world against marauding and deadly would-be conquerors — I have utmost admiration and understanding of the need for your skills.
For survival. Yes, I get it.
I’ve lived it.
But the contemporary culture that idolises the vicious killer machine — the cyborg warrior; the hacking back-stabbing streetfighter in the guise of frenemy; the eternal conflict of wars based on the destruction of communities for the conquest of land bearing oil or gold; the deadly cult of competition that destroys creative and loving spirit; the children hunted in forests for sex or sport by incredibly soulless evil adult predators; and other vicious and demonic ‘games’, will continue to play on. If we don’t do something.
The contemporary competitive culture is not a reality I would ever choose to participate in.
I don’t really understand it on a soul level — it doesn’t align with any higher purpose. Although in many ways I’ve mastered dealing with it.
Even the darkest hour has only 60 minutes… there IS always Hope
Fighting with the Word
I’d be dead if I hadn’t resurrected my ancient warrior skills and knowing, and that’s a fact.
But I fought in this lifetime with the word and not the sword. And that’s also a fact.
As many do, I too studied Sun Tzu's Art of War and many other martial arts warriors to enhance my own art of survival in this strange, strange world. Alongside my intensive spiritual studies of ancient mind yoga Sanskrit and other texts, yes, I studied warfare.
And the great Aikido teacher Morihei Ueshiba’s book The Art of Peace.
The ugly face of competition creates enormous suffering, sickness, and death for many and I don’t see the gains. Except possibly for some momentary endorphin high the game-players and voyeuristic observers receive when one person is raised above another, and the life of the other potentially destroyed.
What is that? It looks fairly sick when we get a clear eagle-eyed perspective doesn’t it?
It’s seriously time for social transformation and those ways really won’t cut it anymore.
We can talk about planetary spiritual ‘ascension’, but there needs to be a reality check about ground base, and how it feels.
Do we really want to lose Mother Earth due to endless conflict and ceaseless carelessness? And be forced to move to Mars? I think not kitty.
But truthfully, the real deconstruction of power games begins with language.
As our thoughts become the words that create our reality.
And shamans and real spiritual teachers and seekers of enlightenment have always known about the difficult reality of walking the ‘Path of Heart’. This is the reality we choose, however.
It’s never been known to be an easy or safe path due to the predators along it seeking to eat the light and life-force of those who walk it.
A Separate Reality
Which reality do you choose?
Either this current social structure continues to degrade.
Through endless and relentless warfare, and the destructive competitive conflict of one tearing down the life of the other in order to sit on some invisible throne of conquest, as the unendingly lovelessness of consumerism devolves into ultimate corruption and destruction, spiraling all that could possibly be down a cosmic drain-hole back into the primal mulch.
Or we can take societal transformation into our hands and hearts, knowing it begins in the realm of ideas and thoughts.
This is the potential ascension of reality as we know it, not its devolution.
And this decision essentially creates a new reality through a gently radical R/Evolution of the wheel, to the changes so badly needed.

10 Dimensions of Reality
By Dr. Mahboob Ali Khan PhD.
Here’s a handy reference to the vast, terrifying vistas of space-time. According to superstring theory, there are at least 10 dimensions in the universe (M-theory actually suggests there are 11 dimensions to spacetime; bosonic string theories suggest 26 dimensions). That’s a bit of a mind-boggler: Most people understand the basic three dimensions, and many know the fourth dimension is probably time. But what, exactly, are the full 10 dimensions?
The First Dimension: Length — The first dimension is length, or x-axis — a straight line, with no other characteristics.
The Second Dimension: Height — Height, or y-axis, can be added to the length to produce a two-dimensional object, such as a triangle or square.
The Third Dimension: Depth — Depth, or z-axis, can be added to the previous two dimensions to produce objects that have volume, like a cube, pyramid, or sphere. This is the end of the dimensions that are directly physically perceptible by human beings. All dimensions beyond the third are theoretical.
The Fourth Dimension: Time — The fourth dimension is the position in time occupied by a three-dimensional object.
The Fifth Dimension: Possible Worlds — The fifth dimension is a world slightly different than ours, from which we could measure similarities and differences to our own world.
The Sixth Dimension: A Plane of All Possible Worlds With the Same Start Conditions — The sixth dimension is a plane containing all possible universes with the same start conditions as ours: i.e. the Big Bang.
The Seventh Dimension: A Plane of All Possible Worlds With Different Start Conditions — The seventh dimension expands upon the sixth by plotting all possible worlds that begin with different start conditions.
The Eighth Dimension: A Plane of All Possible Worlds, Each With Different Start Conditions, Each Branching Out Infinitely — Are you dizzy yet? (OK, OK, look, there’s a point beyond which the mind of humanity is unable to cognize without resorting to rave flyer graphics.)
The Ninth Dimension: All Possible Worlds, Starting With All Possible Start Conditions and Laws of Physics — In each of these dimensions, which represent all possible start conditions, the laws of physics are all completely different.
The Tenth Dimension: Infinite Possibilities — At this level of complexity, everything that is possible and imaginable exists. Even a world in which you have no student loans.
