Creative Thinking: We’re Just Some Experiments

Countless theories are filling the void of the emptiness we feel whenever we try to think of our origin.  When did we arrive?  How did we first exist?  How on earth had we survived but not the dinosaurs?  We know the dinosaurs existed for sure as we have dug up so many dinosaurs’ skeletons in our backyards.  We then ponder on how the dinosaurs were killed off.  What had killed off the dinosaurs but left us alive?  Or, did we come after the existence of the dinosaurs?  So on and so on we go, and we go off the rail with theory after theory, unsure of ourselves how on earth we really had come about to exist here on earth.

If I remember correctly, one theory suggests that a sizable enough chunk of space rock such as a meteor could have created a large enough impact on earth’s past to wreck so much havoc on earth’s past ecosystem, thus in the process, the monstrous size of the dinosaurs was the death-knell that killed off the dinosaurs.  Basically, the dinosaurs could not sustain their lifeforce while the earth’s ecosystem was in tattered.  Not enough foods were around to sustain the predators like the dinosaurs!

Whatever the theory may be, a meteor or an asteroid, diseases or God’s will, we would never be sure how the dinosaurs were extinct since we weren’t there to witness the hellish catastrophe.  How did we come into being?  It seems the whole human race is still having an amnesia because we don’t remember how we had come into being!

To play this guessing game, I like to suggest the most outlandish, on the par with sci-fi spirit, theory.  Imagine when the earth was still at its most primitive stage.  The dinosaurs were roaming freely.  They would feed on smaller preys and humans weren’t around at all.  Of course, I could imagine how ugly such a scene could be to see a dinosaur gnawing, crunching away on a live human, but luckily I think we weren’t around at the time when the dinosaurs roamed as kings.

My theory suggests an alien race descended onto the planet earth, killed off all dinosaurs, spared the more harmless cockroaches and few other harmless animals so the food sources could lay intact and the earth’s ecosystem could survive to nurse the next king of the planet.  The aliens then would create an out of this world experiment by planting human seeds at our most primitive stage to see how the whole planet earth would develop thereafter.  Perhaps, in the future, the aliens would then revisit our planet earth to check on their amazing experiment.  Would the whole human race survive or die off?  They could make a bet to each other while they’re making their way here on their super cool spaceship.

If anyone is making a movie, I think my theory is rather cool for such a prospect.  Don’t you think so?  Anyway, I think my theory seems to be way cooler than other theories that try to explain how the dinosaurs went extinct and how humans came into being on the planet earth!  Of course, my theory is way outlandish and got no proof to back the claim up, but how could you disprove that my theory is wrong when all other theories are just mere theories too.  Remember, we weren’t there when things got really ugly!

Sold Out Next Gen Gaming Consoles Let Me Found My Sanity Again

I’m a fan of gaming, not of a specific gaming platform!  Furthermore, I’m a sort of gaming fans that require the graphics to be as best as graphics can be.  This means, I expect of nothing less than the next stellar gaming graphics, and I want the next latest games to have better graphics than the last games.  Sure, the plots, gameplay, character empathy, in-game rewarding system, and other major features that many good games should have are all very important, but without good graphics and great arts such games would be mediocre to me.  Of course, you can argue that should the gameplay matter most?  How about a game plot should shine most?  Of course, there will be some addictive elements that will stand out most for a good game, but my preference for a good game is usually graphics first… there will be some exceptions though but those occasions are rare and so it’s safe to say I want great gaming graphics, always.

It’s no surprise that for the reason of great gaming graphics alone that I only see myself playing more of PC games (fyi… even with PS4 and Xbox One, games on these consoles won’t be able to match the great gaming graphics experience with games on PCs that have mid-range to high end graphic cards).  I have had PS3 and Xbox 360 for years, but I’ve rarely touched them.  Safely to say, I had not touched my PS3 and Xbox 360 for months.  Instead of playing games on consoles, I found myself login to Steam, Uplay, and Origin on a daily basis.  Furthermore, Steam has been the gaming platform where I giddily scour for great games on sale, on an alarming, addictive, frequent basis.  Such a behavior has contributed to my spending money on PC games that I may not have time to play at all since finishing a single game is already a time consuming act.  Nonetheless, I’ve to say that I don’t think I will be able to own so many games if I buy games for consoles since the games for consoles don’t easily go on sale.  Also, games for consoles don’t go on sale as frequent as Steam!

Although I’m not exactly a hardcore gamer, but I do play games a lot, therefore I thought the arrivals of the next generation gaming consoles such as PS4 and Xbox One would surely have me running for becoming the first fews to get ’em kind of things.  I usually loved it when I got it right, but this time I felt bad as I saw myself walked into Best Buy and asked if they got PS4 or Xbox One available (even though I’m a PC gamer).  To my relief and anguish at the same time as I swallowed the words “sold out” as the  Best Buy representative proudly let out.  I found a relief in this as I knew I only drooled over PS4 and Xbox One for their novelty, but whenever I got over the novelty of ’em all I probably would not hesitate to allow the consoles to be untouched, unloved and covered in dusts — wasting little money I have had away.  The anguish feeling I found in all of this confirmed that I was too just loving to be materialistic for new toys.  Nonetheless, I have to say thanks to the sold out problem that the new consoles are experiencing, I probably will stay away from ’em next generation consoles for a long long time, because after-all I’m a PC gamer.  Without being able to get my hands on the next generation gaming consoles at a whim of my desires, I found my sanity again!  Perhaps?

Desires and temptations are the fruits of all evils, but I’m only a mortal!  Let’s get the game on!!!
