Computer Games Are Considered to Expand Consciousness

Published on 19 February 16
With every passing year, the number of fans of computer games is constantly growing. For this reason, modern psychologists have decided to study the effect of video games on human mind. As a result, they have made a new hypothesis. Let's look at it closer.

Online games have become a part of our lives. We spend a lot of time sitting at the computer. To relax, we start playing video games in the evenings. When we get bored, we recall our favorite online games as well. Both teenagers and adults enjoy playing computer games. So we can say that this type of entertainment has no age.

Having conducted a great deal of research, psychologists came to the conclusion that online games can expand our consciousness indeed. How does it work? There are several dimensions of the surrounding world. This is a so-called real world, dreams, and trance. When we are awake, we see one picture of the world. We consider it real and truthful. In the arms of Morpheus, we enter into another dimension. Experiencing the trance state, we behold the third picture. Thus, our brain gets used to seeing the different representations of reality.

Recently, psychologists began to talk about the fourth dimension. It turned out to be the virtual reality. There are sufficient grounds for this. While playing online games, people are deeply immersed in the world they see on the screen. Sometimes, they can even hardly answer whether it’s real or not. That’s why experts use such term as ‘extension of consciousness’. Players experience new feelings. They lose control of what they are doing.

If one has got a strong willpower, they won’t become addicted. They clearly understand that there is time for work and limited time for entertainment. Having decided to have a bit of rest, they pick a particular online game according to their preferences. Young girls prefer to play games with princesses. Men choose the ones with machines. Athletes spend their free time playing online cricket at When time is up, they turn off the computer and continue with the next activity. It tells about their responsible approach to life. But the thing is, this is no big deal. Anyone can do the same. You just have to keep your mind cold. Learn to control your emotions and feelings.

Whether psychologists are right about their hypothesis or not, only time will tell. However, it is undeniable that the virtual reality may be considered as one more picture of the world. This is the same sort of thing as imagination but it seems much more realistic. This can play an evil joke with some players. Therefore, it is important to draw a clear line between the real world and the virtual one.

Don’t try to run away from reality. You are capable to make it happy and pleasing. Do it. And you won’t have any reason to seek refuge in the virtual world.
