Why I'm so happy with virtual worlds ?
Oh I could give you a lot of reasons...and they are different for everyone :-) for me, not so usual like for most people, I don't like shopping, chatting, dancing, sex etc... this is not my cup of tea... but we do have a saying in Flemish and translated it would be like this : 'Each bird sings as he was mouthed'.
The 'was' is how you are born I suppose with your heritage, DNA and later your developments in live. Mine have been artistic on several platforms. In RL live it is the way you percieve things and that makes the difference between to 'see' and to' look' :-)
In virtual worlds you can have great fun to manipulate the image and how you see things on your screen by using your camera cursors... and then.... yes.... you see things out of the blue full of imagination and unexpected perspective ! That's why I like virtual worlds so much and I like also to play in it and making things...
A 'Calimero complex' is used to denote someone who thinks the world is against him or her because they are an underdog. In the Dutch series Calimero says :
They are big and I is small and that is not fair, oh no! (erroneous use of the word "is" is intentional)
I do not have a complex but do not feel/think like the average people either so in a way I'm an outlaw just like Calimero ? ..
So for me this is how I play and use virtual worlds...to create, to see, to wonder, to be surprised, to enjoy and much more !
I wonder what your motivations are ? :-)
