You know when you make a conscious effort towards progression? Not only in art, but in life, trying to keep in mind the past present & future and how we tie into everything?
I think pondering the questions are just as important as getting the answers, but maybe that's the wannabe metaphysicist in me.
We're like coin-ops, and while we may get another credit when we're done, there's no guarantee you'll be able to play the game on the same generation of consoles, or remember the previous iteration.
So while we're in it, explore, learn some cheat codes, and try to imagine you're avatar turning towards the screen and saying, " I know you're out there, and thanks for the 1ups, son!"
Yup, this is what happens when you're researching existentialism with the PS3 turned on XD
