I have always been curious about how we all can be self-aware, and I have found that the way we talk about ourselves can be a clue to our consciousness. I think I can agree with the idea that we all have 3 levels of self-awareness: the external, the internal, and the mental.
The external is what’s visible. It’s what we see in front of us – the things we see in our lives, like our faces, our bodies, our clothes, our actions, our emotions. The external is what we focus on. For instance, I think we’re all aware that every time I take a dump, the noise is loud, but we’re not aware of it.
The inner level is what we think about. It is the thoughts that we think about the most about ourselves. We live in a world of words. We use words to describe the things that we feel and what we are. It can also be a difficult concept for some people to grasp.
My brother is a psychiatrist who specializes in helping people with depression. I’ve known him for years. Every time I see him I ask, “How would you describe yourself to someone who does not know you?” And he always answers something along the lines of, “I’m an empathetic person who wants to understand my patients.” I would describe myself as someone who thinks carefully before I act, who tries to find the good in things, and who can be a bit selfish at times.
A bit of a self-promoter, I can see that. But you can also ask yourself if you are on autopilot or not. And if you know, you know.
That’s exactly how I feel about Wilder, our newest addition to the game. From the moment he first came into our lives he has been one of our most passionate creatives, making sure that our games are created with a care and love for our fans. He has also been one of the most generous and welcoming people I know, and one of the best friends I have in the game.
While Wilder’s presence is in the game, the fact is that he is not the only creator in the game. We are a team of many creative teams, but Wilder and I are the two most important ones, because we have created most of the other things. So we are responsible for crafting the gameplay. And that leads to the questions we ask ourselves whenever we think about the team. We get asked by players who feel the need to ask Wilder what they should do.
I guess the question is, “What can you do that can’t be done by a better player?” Well, I haven’t thought about it that way very much, but I can tell you that Wilder is a hell of a player. He is more than capable of doing everything Wilder can do, but Wilder can be quite inconsistent as well.
The question Wilder raises is a good one. I know I can’t tell you what Wilder can do, but when I think about Wilder, I think of a very skilled player who has the ability to find great players. I don’t think wilder can be that player, not to the point where he would want to be. But what Wilder can do is the ability to keep the game interesting.
In order to make a great player, Wilder has to stay one step ahead of everyone else, and thats by far the most difficult challenge of Wilder. No other player has the same level of skill and the same amount of time as Wilder to be able to keep up with the rest of the scene.
