I am starting to discover just how few people actually write books, websites, games, movies, rap songs.
It's unbelievable that women go for all these tricksters taking credit for government operations.
It's as painful and disheartening of a discovery as the biggest, buffest guy you can think of only being willing to fight weaklings and only willing to shoot guns at an opponent who doesn't even have a gun.

it's one of those, upgrade your city conquer the map mobile games that are all over, but with tons of quality of life improvements (to make them actually fun), several major original features, and select inspired features from my years of "research" (lol).

I plan on simplifying the city, getting rid of numerous and repeat single function buildings. but more importantly I plan on making $$$ by promoting numerous forms of competition rather than to avoid unnecessarily long build times or insane resource requirements.

the focus will be on free players so as to build and maintain a massive player base long term, and that will inevitably draw in the deep pockets. 99.99% or more of all the current games focus on the money and fail. I dont understand their developers at all. 80% of them are copy pastes of each other including the newish final fantasy version or the one with the ads with the bouncy model on tv.

most of meat of the game and my original features were not mentioned so there is much much more. but this should be enough to show a hint of potential and maybe a programmer who sees the potential and will decide to partner up on the project :D

yes, absolutely. this was never meant to be an agree/disagree but more of a critical brainstorm. I dont mean to question someone's goals to bring them down but to make them deeper, as well as see what everyone feels to draw inspiration for myself and others viewing this.

for someone in the working class, bringing yourself and your family above that level is in itself a remarkable achievement, especially in the current reality. very few do it and I will be disappointed in myself if I fail this in the end. although the endless chasing of money for it's own sake is not an ultimate endeavor in my opinion, to get above the point of equilibrium is vital.

after that I hope to fund my video game, I think I can do alot of good changes in that field lol. but more importantly, after getting some financial wiggle room (the most a working class person can hope for before any other dream aside a monk or a sports star can be even started) I want to enter politics and start a movement focused on getting money out of it. if I can contribute to (or dare I dream achieve) that goal, i think i will be more than satisfied. also have a kid.

definitely. people need a drive.

haha probably. Morales aside for what I guess u would call a ultimate aspiration is to be able to get my future family a life better than mine. my life wasn't bad but it was poor. I would like to do better there.

we all have dif. ultimate drives. it's how we are made. idk if some are stronger than others and that's why they are successful or if Morales really can dictate someone's drive or thousands of other things I'm sure we ask ourselves and try to find the answers for. though it is good to see what drives people.

in times of past, having many kills was a mark of greatness. I didn't think of entertaining such "alternative" aspirations but heck, I did not mean to exclude them either

small deeds are truly nice, and imo a prerequisite. but do you not agree there most be something that drives a person in between and beyond those deeds? personal goals and dreams, as well as the effort we invest in them.

i do believe you are over-focusing on the moral aspect, unless that is your goal. although full time "good deeder" is a rarely chosen path, it was good enough for monks, buddhas, and even christ himself. for most of us however, deeds are done when they find us, we dont seek them. that thing we seek every day is what I'm curious about. what do we reach for?

and for those who simply seek more and more money/power/fame, do you have any plans on how to use them the day after you get them, or are these tools themselves really a worthy goal?

a quiet life is still possible. anything from family to a very dedicated (insert any profession). but is small good deeds really the only variable?

4 months, 3 weeks ago

it really depends what u aspire to. I personally don't feel the need to make a big splash. I know that I am one of millions. but I know that my small splashes can change an individuals life. so I guess what I'm saying is I would be happy with the quiet life. not all of us are eistien but we can all still help do the small things.

Don't beat me up with psionics or name calling for my response.
A world where a homosexual sodomite doesn't have power to attack those who disagree with homosexual sodomy. Those who disagree, naturally can oppose forced homosexual sodomy upon themselves or their biological children.
Having to pay a lawyer as the only option against homosexual sodomy advocates is for wimps.
Homosexual sodomy advocates are extremely strong because they advocate and allow all the tattoos regardless if the person is not a verifiable homosexual.

looking back with pride would be an excellent outcome, but what kind of achievements would result in this pride is the question I wonder about.

would a quiet uneventful life filled with multitude of small good acts suffice? or would a grand summation achievement be prefered? I'm not asking for the opinion of some otherworldly judge but a personal verdict of ones own life at the end.

it is to one's self though so it may still be viable. though the world and God may disagree. but I certainly see ur point.haha. what would u say is the answer history buff?

Serial killers are often proud of their murderers. being proud of it doesn't necessarily make it a worthy aspiration.

to be able to look back and be proud of what u did.

On the Earth with 7 billion people, one should aspire for acceptable relations with both the friends and the foes.
Even though the next statement does not come from the holy text, I believe it to be sound.
A friend to all, is a friend to nobody.
