I was thinking lately, letting my mind wander after seeing films like Eraserhead
and Straw dogs
and came upon some interesting ideas.
After realizing the futility of progressing upon my old theoretical work on why the EVE Forums are not the best place to look for any kind of info-input-action regarding EVE, I decided to explore other venues of thinking, and I hope others here can join me on this small Sunday Night post.
The Theories of Paradox, specially regarding behavior led me to realize another interesting aspect of EVE and it's underground community ... namely us.
I believe, and I'm willing to entertain any ideas in pro of this statement or against it (or lack of them), that we are simply living in a huge evolved Neo-Abilene Paradox
of Virtual Proportions, in these forums.
Since our Abilene is nonexistent, we are simply mid-ride perpetually and the moment we realize we just don't want to go to Abilene or that we reached indeed Abilene in some inner level we simply make a "I'm quitting" statement.
Canhazstuffers are simply riders reinforcing the illusion that Abilene was indeed a good choice.
This, can obviously be extrapolated to MANY areas not only within the game but within the MMO's in general. But was just thinking and still trying to organize yet another segment of my 5 year long personal work, which will be discussed briefly another time I'm somewhat tipsy and mindflooded with interesting Movies on a weekend.
<3 u all
PD: watch those movies, they great!
