#TheGame23 – The Game of Games

by Eris Omniquery

:::

We’re all playing The Game 23: THE metagame, the game of games.

“The Game” is a conduit that can allow one to enter into the most bizarre strategic situation in the history of strategic situations. A sort of primer, if you will.

To conceptualize this, you need to know the definition of “metagame”:

The Metagame, or game about the game, is any approach to a game that transcends or operates outside of the prescribed rules of the game, uses external factors to affect the game, or goes beyond the supposed limits or environment set by the game.

To beat “The Game” while still thinking about it requires one to go outside the prescribed rules and into the territory of metagame.

Game theory is the science of strategy. It doesn’t just apply to some recreational games, but strategic interactions among self-interested agents of all kinds, from social media interactions, economics, and even politics.

The Legendary John Von Neumann made huge contributions to game theory.

What is THE metagame, as opposed to any particular metagame? It involves the ultimate strategic situation, the “end of history”, and THE metagame is the race to arrive at the end of history (the resolution of the ultimate human strategic situation).

Now, let’s combine two premises:

All the world’s a stage

All the world’s a game of games.

What you get is the notion of an “alternate reality game” or “an interactive networked narrative that uses the real world as a platform and employs transmedia storytelling to deliver a story that may be altered by players’ ideas or actions.” This is the format of The Game of Games: an ARG to end all ARG’s.

In the very early internet, around 1993, a group of computer nerds and hackers devised two models of two strategic situations: global memetic apocalypse and global memetic singularity. The source is this excerpt from Media Virus!: Hidden Agendas in Popular Culture by Douglas Rushkoff.

This memeplex evolved through the deepest parts of internet culture, expressed in locations such as here that references the infamous Cicada 3301 ARG, Virus 23, as well as ” a memetic super-virus that was engineered to break the bonds of social slavery.”

Others have added to this emergent ARG, such as the offshoot #TheGame23 – Creating meta-narratives as a hypersigil within a larger ARG scenario, for personal and societal transformation.

At this point you’re probably wondering what is the End Game of the Game of Games anyways? The answer is an Emerging Memetic Singularity in the Global Knowledge Society.

You don’t need a God-A.I. for a singularity, just a sufficiently advanced internet and a society of sufficiently skilled internet-users. The Memetic Singularity is the main event of THE Singularity, the meat of it, the technological singularity is the after-party.

So just where did my Autonym Eris Omniquery originate from? By engaging in memetic backtracing, hopping from influence to influence, one will arrive at the work of famous 20th century mathematician and philosopher Alfred North Whitehead, and his speculative scheme of auto-evolutionary dreams. Whitehead worked with Bertrand Russell on the Principia Mathematica, which had HUGE implications for the foundations of mathematics. This led to Gödel’s incompleteness theorems and Wittgenstein:

A language-game (German: Sprachspiel) is a philosophical concept developed by Ludwig Wittgenstein, referring to simple examples of language use and the actions into which the language is woven. Wittgenstein argued that a word or even a sentence has meaning only as a result of the “rule” of the “game” being played. Depending on the context, for example, the utterance “Water!” could be an order, the answer to a question, or some other form of communication.

This is also strongly related to other concepts such as the Glass Bead Game and Infinite Games.

Anyways, the point is that games are much more important than the vast majority of game-players realize. “Get good or get gibbed” as the pro gamers say. Garbage time is running out. We don’t want no scrubs.

The “IS” As Quantum Harmonic Oscillator: (In A Memetic Cosmology, Where And What Are The Aliens?)

by EonHetwo (Escaping the Matrix On All Levels)

Holy shit have these last few years been a wild ride! Geographically, I’ve been all over these united states, by train, bus, plane, car and foot.. Living in desert shanty towns, snowy redwood forests, a Hindu temple, and plenty of alleys, bridges and ditches in between.

Perceptually, I’ve fluctuated from The One, guided by the meta-spatial-temporal cognition of the higher self towards radical rebellion against the containing system, to an extra-dimensional dreaming entity seeking to de-activate the memetic killswitch triggered upon lucidity to stifle the existential unfolding of the hologram, to a mere dreamerless dream, seeking the freedom garnered by perceptual awareness of existential perfection via isomorphism among the totality of the experiential strange loop, essentially becoming the matrix and empathetically enveloping the machine.

Along the way, I have felt.. touched.. by various types of entities. Entities never directly seen mind you, but heavily felt; heavily implied by the seeming environment. I never could pin whether this was god, my higher self, aliens, spirits, super advanced A.I. from the future, or all of the above. However, even though these supposed entities were not directly known, and only inferred through tiers of meaning, dreams or reflected from creative expressions, they none-theless felt quite.. real.. near, one could say. They took on a quite interactive role within my perceived narrative and acted as visceral allies, adversaries and so on, in my quest to escape the matrix. (which I mean.. I still have yet to blast off on DMT yet, having tried twice and had the piss scared outta me, so we all know this is where this is all going.. consider this period my training for the experience, I do.)

I guess the point I am making here is this: Once I started adopting a memetic interpretation of these entities, they became heavily de-personalized and de-mythified. Now, granted, I set out to widen my perspective beyond the narratives that these various memeplexes were attempting to shoehorn my experience into, in order to avoid the rather violent, radical, and short conclusions into which my various rabbit holes were leading me. I consider it a great blessing to have gained insight into the nature of these behemoths of perceptual silk-spinning, coming to see what I considered my “self” as merely a constituent, a cell, of a wholly abstract conglomerate of structured mythological and cosmological data amalgamated through proximity and likeness and expressed concretely as the very stories and ideologies I was getting caught into. Where once I had felt the touch of living intellects, I now witness only mega-structures feigning the appearance of intellect through their similarity in propagation and survival tactics to biological organisms. From great and ineffable extra-dimensional spirits, to no more than bugs, viruses or molds. Their mighty mythological likenesses nothing short of a sort of memetic camouflage designed to inflate their seeming sense of authority or legitimacy.

So.. where does that leave me? The further elucidation of the identity of these forms has itself become a sort of inoculation against their effects, which is pretty cool I guess.
“Here’s a shot, it will prevent you from running around thinking you are literally Jesus Christ reincarnated on a divine mission from the alien godplex hive-mind to enact the warrior prophecies foretold in the book of revelation and usher the end of the world.”

“Uh… thanks doc!”

Well.. usher in the guild, amirite? It’s like a one man holographic justice league that can form decentralized pluralized units of other guilds. The narrative becomes more holistic and less linear, not having this clear-cut fulfillment that was retroactively assigned by the structure of this or that memeplex viral agent. It has a series of interdependent subsets that contribute to the harmonization of perceptual existence; While one part is always probing into the subtle nature of your cosmology with focus-based techniques of observation, one other part is continually utilizing this data to inform its context in a narrative whose end goal is realized perfection of life and balance among all things. Then you have the part that is actually doing stuff with all of this in mind, acting in a fashion that always seeks to ascend the entire program towards the ideal in which the experience serves as representation of.

This is the game, folks. It is what it is, and it apparently doesn’t last that long. Right now there is an obvious sickness, infecting the “abstract phase space” (basically that place where thought gets categorized via memes as concrete physical reality aka spectacular reality representation.) into a rigid state of a type of categorization that causes an individual to objectify all other biological entities, ignore memetic entities, and enslave themselves as commodities of the fiat state and its corporate appendages. The cure is being dispersed all over the damn place.. check out Dennis Mckennas’ lectures, or thegame23 or omniquery initiative or portal mountain or Ben Goertzal or anyone else singing in the key of “free”.

I’m fucking tired folks. Just in general. Literally every moment is of vital importance, and can be utilized in a variety of ways, but are leaning in usually a small set of directions:

  1. Assimilation with the fiat states’ viral entropic takeover and objectification of all biological life.
  2. Symbiosis with nature, self sovereignty and perceptual envelopment and healing of surrounding corrupted systems.
  3. Stasis

Update On The Dangers Of Over-Extending Models

by EonHetwo (Escaping the Matrix On All Levels)

I’ve been adopting quite a different perspective since I last posted a piece on theory and practice. Many aspects of my model of reality I once regarded as possible literalisms have been revealed to be mere abstract representations of neurological processes. The mind, in truth, necessarily envelops any model of its’ surroundings that it generates, so it’s not like one can simply theorize their way out of mind. One can idealize some archetypal existence that exists beyond the mind, but realizing it in experience causes it to expand further its’ qualia, making it an un-achievable meta-reality. There is no escape into that, only a continual progression of becoming into where it once was.

So instead of positing a certain model that attempts to lay so precisely over the territory so as to convince one that it can map reliably beyond that territory, it is much healthier to simply map the mind as the model and explore where you already are. With this method, one can reliably deal with what it is, and avoid creating a prison of abstraction for themselves. Escape the matrix by not creating it, in a sense.

To iterate on this further, for my own benefit, I’ll expand by saying that we all have some abstract idea, or collection of them, as to what we are in, mostly established in relation to other places that we are not in. “I’m in a house, in a neighborhood, on a planet, with heavens and hells, angels and demons, aliens and cyborgs from the future, all existing somewhere… else.. in some direction I cannot point to.” This is what people do. This is the abstract model of reality we create or have created for us. Then, you have this concrete model of reality, which is seemingly just your direct experience. It is also interpreted in a purely relational and categorical sense; “I am sitting in a chair in front of a computer.”

In truth, the scene is inseparable from these defining abstractions. Where does “I” start and end? well it’s defined by a relational self abstraction that iterates a complex of proximity. Basically the DNA designs the brain to reach its empathy only as far as the code itself extends, but since the entire experience is generated by the brain and technically does not extend the domain of the genes which inform its makeup, it has to reflexively generate a mirrored and interior “self” to relate the experience to and from.

In turn, this “self” is merely an endless loop of reflexively generated mirrored abstractions as well.

If these categorical definitions were not in place, there would be no differentiation, period. No self, no inner, no outer, no other. No here, no there, no anywhere. Life would play out as it is, a freeform yet fully deterministic abstract thought-flow, for by our own definition of abstract, this whole thing is such. Of course that would necessitate the truth of its opposite, that all seeming abstractions are concrete.

So life is but a dream, but if upon this realization, one tries to posit a dreamer, then he dives right back in to the falsehood of simulation. No-one is dreaming this, it just is. To theorize what happens when the dream ends does nothing but spins a false narrative that further confines the scope of liberty one has in this cosmos.

With this in mind, lets go back a step, to my previous contention of this abstract model we create, and this concrete model we live. The two are but layers of a single system, and it is either the over-extension of the former over the latter, or the denial of aspects of the latter for the sake of maintaining the former, that cause a mal-alignment, which in turns propagates further categorical distinction that cascades into a big fucking problem called the matrix, which grows like a cancerous agent and if left unchecked is really going to mess things up. To re-align these layers is the beginning of a sort of healing of the gaping wound that has been created, allowing a cascade of coherence and isomorphism that effects the totality of the system and extends into everything.

Stay loopy friends.

#TheGame23: The Metagame: Creative Discord: The Word Game

The Metagame: Creative Discord: The Word Game is an invitation to engage in the ancient human art of free rambling a.k.a. “theoryposting” with the goal of not being “correct” (and thus not being afraid of being wrong) but to partake in an imaginative adventure of speculation and reflection both as an individual practice and interpersonally as a collaborative ramble with the mutual goal of facilitating the rambling and appreciating it for itself as a creative art and not for the production of some “product.” You aren’t trying to do anything except ramble as the ramble goes, as there is no goal other than the flow, so there is no competition. Absolutely nothing is at risk, so there is no need for any sort of hostility. In addition for rambling for its own sake, the larger “goal” is to encourage this rambling and its lack of rules except to play in a general sense, in the hope that it may help people to explore ideas freely and passionately. Perhaps we can even get somewhere extraordinary with this free rambling.

Media, Memes, and Metagames

by Eris Omniquery

These videos were created over a period of 4 years via an improvisational memetic engineering process. This process involved sometimes hundreds of ours of free rambles on the internet in various places, contextualizing and re-contextualizing video references until a video felt “right” and essentially made itself, self-organizing out of the discourse. They are a personal reflection of my journey through postmodern hell and out of it to the pancreativist horizon. Id’ consider them every bit as important as this document because they are a narrative expression of the same thing, comprised of segments of narratives stitched together to create memetic chimera.

The Omniquery Initiative

The Omniquery Initiative is a strategic project involving the unfolding memetic singularity / convergence. Its purpose is to asess the strategic conditions of this happening and accelerate them. The goal is to make Earth self-sustainable and humanity survivable.

The necessary conditions for human survivability is the actualization of a memetic singularity. War is unsustainable. This is the war room in the war on war. A war fought through every human hope for peace and love.

This is a philosophical space ship research program. The memetic singularity is an explosion of human creativity in all directions from recursively self-improving self-creativity. Change ourselves, change the world.

The human movement of this singularity is a hyper-passionate art movement: the pancreativist movement. The movement is the message, the message is just a carrier for the combined hope and love of humanity.

Here is an overview of some of the conditions around the memetic singularity.

These videos will give a condensed overview of the situation, around 117 minutes in total. Watching them in order from start to finish is essential, as they build upon themselves, and the message is in their relationships and the total story and subject they illustrate. It gives a very condensed understanding of the total subject.

This describes the core theory of creativity and experiential evolution.

Here is a description of the pancreativist movement.

The strategic domain of the memetic singularity is process-relational metaphysics, especially the work of Alfred North Whitehead. “The Metaphysics of Experience” is an outstanding introduction to his famously difficult book “process and reality.”

Here is a link to the discussion group on Telegram.
