SEX. SUICIDE. DIVINITY. THE EMERGENCE OF NEW  CONTROVERSIES IN NICHE  GAME WORLDS
CONTROVERSIES THAT CAN EXTEND BEYOND THE EDGES OF THE GAME SPACE CREATE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SPIRITUAL INNOVATION.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
BUT IF THIS IS THE DESIRE OF THE MAINSTREAM
 
 
… THEN WHAT DOES IT MEAN
… THEN WHAT DOES IT MEAN  TO BE NICHE?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
SERIOUS PLAYERS HAVE AN AGENDA TO RECONCILE  HOPE  AND  ACTION
WITHIN THE GLOBALIZED   MEGANICHE
NICHE VOICES   COMMODIFY  THEIR MEDIA
SO THAT BILLIONS CAN FINALLY UTTER….
FINE
FINE….I WILL HAVE YOU SEE IT
FINE….I WILL HAVE YOU SEE IT  MY WAY.
HOW DO WE DISTINGUISH BETWEEN   CONTROVERSY  AND   PROPAGANDA ?
PROPAGANDA CREATES RATIONALE
CONTROVERSY CREATES MYTH
FOR DEVELOPING   GLOBAL NARRATIVES
REFLECTIVE OF THE PAST
COMPARATIVE TO THE PRESENT
IMAGINATIVE OF THE FUTURE
A MEGANICHE ECOLOGY
A MEGANICHE ECOLOGY EXPANDS AND EVOLVES
A MEGANICHE ECOLOGY EXPANDS AND EVOLVES  THROUGH NICHE ITERATION
A MEGANICHE ECOLOGY  EXPANDS AND EVOLVES  THROUGH NICHE ITERATION   WITH REFLEXIVE INTEGRITY
A MEGANICHE ECOLOGY  EXPANDS AND EVOLVES  THROUGH NICHE ITERATION   WITH REFLEXIVE INTEGRITY BOTH IN AND AROUND GAME SPACES.
BECAUSE  WHAT WE PLEASURE
BECAUSE  WHAT WE PAIN
BECAUSE  HOW WE PLAY
THE MISSIONS WE CHOOSE TO ACCEPT
ARE DEEPLY PERSONAL
BECAUSE WE  CAN  SUSPEND  DISBELIEF
FOR THE SAKE OF ACHIEVING OURSELVES
BUT WHAT IF WE SUSPEND BELIEF?
NICHES EMPOWER THE MEGANICHE
IMAGINE THE PLANET
IMAGINE THE PLANET PLAYFULLY AWARE OF ITSELF.
