This was the title of a book I read a few years ago. It’s about the concept of “self-awareness” and how it applies to our everyday lives.
As I read through the book, I was amazed by the fact that self-awareness seemed to be one of the foundations of life as we know it. We have the ability to recognize our actions and the results of our actions, and yet we don’t seem to consciously take steps to train ourselves in the necessary techniques to achieve this. This is where the term ‘the deathloop’ comes in. A ‘deathloop’ is a time-loop.
The deathloop is what happens when you start to become unconscious of your own actions and the results of those actions. It’s like if you wake up one day and go to McDonalds for breakfast for the first time and you realize you ate a chicken sandwich. You immediately realize it wasn’t the chicken sandwich. You realized your subconscious wasn’t telling you what to do. Then you realize that you have no idea how and why you ate the sandwich.
So in the case of someone like Colt Vahn, he is an amnesiac who has woken up on a beach with no memory of why he’s on Deathloop’s party island, Blackreef. That’s okay though because something bad clearly happened for him to be trying to murder them all. Our goal in Deathloop is to take out eight Visionaries, intelligent party-lovers who’ve locked an island into one repeating day so they can piss about for eternity.
So the real question is “how do you do this?” It doesn’t matter if Colt is an amnesiac, or if he’s a “hacker.” It’s like when someone talks to you when they’re in a group setting or when they’re in a group. In Deathloop, just think of what you said.
Well, its true that it does matter how you say it, but just think of it as a way to get in contact with other people. Thats the way most people will think of it. If you have a group of people on a party island, you can just imagine all the different ways you can talk to them and theyll think your actions are really cool.
You can think of it like a mini “group chat” or a “talk with friends” or a “whats up” if you want. Its the same idea.
When you meet someone, make sure you check their emails to see if they are actually interested in your ideas or if they are doing something they would like to do. If you can even get an idea of it from them, then its worth doing.
You can actually have a conversation with someone without leaving them a message. If you want to talk to a specific person, just call them directly. If they are in a public place, you can follow them on a map and call them with a map marker. Don’t try to be funny or try to hide.
The internet is filled with people saying things like, “I just want to say that I like your website, your products, and your personality.” Don’t take it personally. Most of the people who do that are not people who really like you. They are just saying that they like you because they like how you make them feel, how you look, or what you say about your life. To be honest, you can’t really respond to them.
