  1. "This is space. It does not cooperate. There will come a point where everything's gonna go south on you and you're gonna say 'this is it, this is how I end'. Now you can either accept that or you can get to work. You just begin. You do the math and solve one problem. Then the next problem, and the next, and if you solve enough problems you get to come home." I often replace the word 'space' with 'life' and it helps me a lot. You never know how much is 'enough' until you actually put in the effort. You must begin without any certainty that everything will work according to plan, and if you manage to do so then you will be rewarded for it I guarantee you. You don't have to solve every problem; you can't solve every problem. But making the effort on what you CAN solve.... that's the difference between those who succeed and add to society, and those who just leech from it.
  2. Yes it is. Is there any way I can help?
  3. Oh man, I do hope this isn't a farewell. Want to meet you one last time at least... I mean, I hope it won't be the last time, but you know what I mean. 7 years ago. Damn I remember, I do. Exactly the bittersweet memories you speak of. All those freaking years of demanding change, and look. Its change that pulled us all apart in the end. And then all that's left is reminiscence.
  4. I have experience with A25 (second Labyrinth), even though that was years ago. Would love to get involved again. The stuff I am more interested is expanding the MD realm itself rather than modifying existing scenes.
  5. Here are my thoughts on this. I'm just typing what I'm thinking. The answer is somewhere in here, and its not a 'here do this' kind of solution. Because it can't be that simple. Its very long: get ready for a ride. But the read is worth it, I promise Here goes: ------------------------------------------------------ Ok so everything resets. Any physical amendment, any environmental changes, etc. This means there is no 'external' solution to this one. Anything affected by time as we know it can't be the solution. This led me to think of two things: the solution either lies in something that is 1) unaffected by time, or 2) it is affected by time, but unlike as as we perceive it. Let me explain what this means. Time is not a real quantity. It is a concept. A concept is a mental structure in which we associate things with each other: a source and a target (take note). To alter the concept of time and memory, you have 2 potential options. One is the source: the brain itself. There are various centers in the brain involved in memory formation, (specifically the hippocampus and associated structures --- read up on Papez circuit if you wish to go into details of this), which have a wonderful ability to 'trap' a piece of time and store it. This is called a memory. Sounds beautiful doesn't it? If you alter the brain, you are changing time as we perceive it (as noted above). Hence this is a potential hole in the loop. The other is the target: the sun/moon. This is what mankind uses to perceive time. I'm talking about solar/lunar calendars, the concept of a 'day', a 'month', a 'year'. These are all dependent on the movements of the sun and moon, eg: rising and setting of the sun, solar and lunar eclipses, full/half moon cycles, etc. If you alter the sun/moon somehow, you can send a message because these are unaffected by time. In fact they are targets mankind uses to create time. So technically controlling them will control time. Thus, this is the second potential hole in the loop. Both of these are two extremes of the spectrum of a 'concept' called time. The source and the target. So we have narrowed it down to this. Next we have to decide which path to take. Looking at the capability of a human being, resources available, and the time interval in which we can make changes after realizing (you say its a day, right?), the best choice seems to be the source. Altering the sun/moon in any way is beyond human capability and nothing can be done in a day ------------------------------------------------- So we alter the brain. How? Well like I said, the solution can't be external. You can't just insert a device in the brain to alter memory formation. Then what? I mentioned the hippocampus and Papez circuit earlier. There is a beautiful natural method of creating and storing memories in time. Now what you have to realize is that only humans have such an elaborate mental structure. No other species or form of life does. What does this mean? It means that just like we see life with less elaborate mental structures, there must definitely be potential to create or BECOME a more elaborate mental structure! One that possibly allows to alter the entire concept of memory formation and time in such a way that your 'past' self can 'recall' things... from the 'future'... which is currently your 'present'... 😮 Yes sure call this absurd all you want. I'm sure if a goat told another goat, "hey you know maybe we can talk and write one day", the other goat would laugh. And that is because it is impossible to comprehend or imagine what the beautiful mind has the capability to do. That is what 'the true potential of our minds is untapped and locked' means after all. Once you unlock that capability, you can do things that previously you thought were 100% impossible. So that is the answer. You have to unlock the capability to do so, in that one-day time interval. I cannot tell you how to do it because like I said, it is beyond comprehension and imagination. Our minds cannot perceive such a concept yet. But it can happen one day, from within.
  6. Farewell BFH. You were truly great to have around and will surely be remembered for years to come.
  7. What keeps you coming back to MagicDuel? No freaking clue, I've asked myself multiple times and can't find an answer. The closest I can put into words is "hope". Every day I hope to log in and see hundreds of people training, questing and adventuring. What is your favourite thing to do in MagicDuel? change (all contexts apply) What do you do most often in MagicDuel? meditate or roam around the maze What do you wish there was more of in MagicDuel? active people What do you wish there was less of in MagicDuel? dst
  8. Day of tranquility is purposeless unless we have at least 100+ active people at the same time. It doesn't matter what explanation you can give to fit it and justify it currently. Its original purpose is no longer valid (because there is nothing to do either way).


    A25 has all the tools needed to implement this very well. If I remember this from years ago, then at the moment it should be even better and easier. You can literally create NPCs to receive items and 'unlock' scene arrows, etc (and a lot more). The only thing I can't recall is whether this is player specific or not. I think if one person pays the toll, the scene would unlock for a short time for every player, not just the one who paid. But I'm sure that may possibly be implemented too. That said, I love the idea.
  10. She said its sarcasm if you read properly. Stop making the sucking-up too obvious haha. Anyway this topic was sooo unnecessary. A lot of clarifications should have been made through PM rather than assuming and concluding.
  11. Definitely don't block people from redacting. Redacting is useful while buying and selling or during misunderstandings. But yeah maybe restore when its part of a proper convo/discussion and the person is only doing it cause they're wrong, or something...
  12. Gazebo of Lost Souls. Because its my home.
  13. Whether he was giving a reason to justify his behaviour, or to explain his behaviour while admitting he was wrong, is yet to be seen. I hope its the latter of course. I don't think one should automatically judge it to be the former.
  14. I don't even know what to say after this post and your other recent posts. You've been talking crazy lol. You're a nice guy Fang but tone those ambitions down a bit. I'd almost consider these posts troll-y at this point.
  15. Two people simultaneously helped me during my early days. Probably wouldn't have stayed without them: Liberty (he was using his 49th or 50th fake account during that time I think) and Sunfire. Later on Chew (general), Shem (LR) and darkraptor (combat stuff).
  16. Wasting WPs is a strictly punishable violation... I don't know why you created a topic like this and publicly made a sarcastic post. A simple PM to Chew or Mur would have been enough.
  17. They don't reset on their own. You must find something (won't spoil where ) in the Labyrinth which will reset everything once touched. There's another similar something that 'initiates' all the mechanisms (makes them appear) when touched, also in the Labyrinth.
