Is this current life you’re experiencing just a game? Are you really living in the world of your own creation? Lets get Esoteric and deep with this article.

What Is Real?

I know that this computer I’m using is real. As I move my fingers words are appearing which then form sentences. Music is coming from downstairs as the kitchen is being painted.

I see that it is 12:40 PM. But at this current moment time doesn’t exist. It is daytime and then later it will be night. There is no difference to me.

I do what I want when I want. At this current moment, I feel moved to write so I write. Later if I feel moved to eat then I will eat.

You are reading this article from wherever you are. I don’t know who you are. You have your own unique life.

To you, I am a face, words, and recording.

Will we ever meet? Are you real? Am I real? For all you know I could just be an extension of you.

Maybe I am who you want to be.

All That Exists…

All that exists is this current moment. Yesterday is just a blur. Tomorrow is abstract. In this present moment, I am writing. I am healthy.

I am fulfilled and focused. Nothing can distract me because I am so engrossed in what I am experiencing.

My senses are slightly amplified due to the Caffeine running through my body.I feel like a Predator running through the woods finding my food for the day.

Meaning of Life

When I was growing up the meaning of life was to stay away from Sin and give your life to the Church. Now at 22 years old, the meaning of life has changed.

I don’t seek Status or Validation. All I seek is to experience things that bring me Fulfillment and Happiness. The meaning of life for me is giving of myself as much as possible at every second. With every word that I make appear on the screen, I give of myself.

When I start recording myself I give of myself.

When I do a Podcast I am channeling my voice into your headphones.

As you learn more about the world and realize that you are largely living a life of your own creation, the meaning of life changes. That is okay. Nobody knows the ultimate reason why everyone was put on Earth.

No Prophet or Shaman can tell you why you are here. You waste your time seeking external things to tell you why you are here.

Look Within…

For years I sought something outside of myself to give me meaning. I went before many gods.

I read the Bible, Quran, and Satanic Bible. I’ve prayed to the Devil and my own self-created gods. I have gone head over heels trying to find someone to take me under their wing and guide me.

With everything I tried, I was always let down.

Due to my upbringing, I lacked the confidence in myself to go out and make my own world. I wanted to live in someone else’s.

It wasn’t until I was possessed by a Creative Spirit that I finally started making sense of the world around me.

Creating Calm and Collected is what flipped the switch in my mind. At the time I was focused on making a Money-Machine. I was going to become that guy people came to read.

People would pay me for my opinions and words. But instead what happened is C&C became the foundation for my life.

Everything exists because of C&C.

I was forced to face myself.

In my head, I was Great and Unstoppable. But by building this site I have had to turn on the light and see myself for who I am.

It was like eating from the Tree of Knowledge. My old self walked around in a Prison. But now my eyes are open. I see myself for who I am.

I see my strengths and weaknesses.

The more I give of myself to Calm and Collected, the more I get back. If you are looking for meaning and answers I urge you to look within yourself.

Is This World Real or A Game

This world is real in the sense of there are certain Laws. There are other people on this Earth. Animals, Vast Oceans, and Great Cities around the world. But outside of that, this world is a game.

You are the Creator of your game. You get to choose what roles you play in this world. You get to choose ultimately where your life ends up.

The reason so many people are miserable is that they are trying to play as a random person on the street. The truth is that you are the Creator and Main Character.

Instead of seeking meaning in other people, you should decide what your meaning is.

There are no walk-through Guides to this Life. Everything is opinion. What is right to you may be wrong to me. What is right to me may be wrong to you.

Nothing has meaning until you give it meaning.

What Does All of This Mean?

Everything you just read will mean whatever you believe it to be. You could think this is terrible and then quickly close the browser so you can go back to reading your Self-Help book.


You could read my words and have a fire ignited within your Soul. It is all up to your Perception. I write for C&C because I enjoy it and see that it helps me.

Since it will help me, I truly believe that it can help you.

  1. Damn right!

    Check out a video i found on youtube, just type in “memes,genes, and religious beliefs.” It explains quite well the effect that outside influence has on people, but also how that affect can be turned into a positive thing.

    When I was around your age, I was going through some very tough times. In reflecting on those days, I realized that life is fragile, and short, and once you die all that remains is the impact you’ve had on others. That and a stinky corpse lol. It was that realization that truly set me free to go for the future that I wanted, even with no specific parameters at the time. Like fuck it. Fuck it all I’ll live my own life.

    It’s fun to see how you’re evolving with this site. I’m doing my own thing now but I appreciate a well written article. A money making machine isn’t so bad you know lol just stay honest and continue to evolve and you’re bound to get there.

    To be real with you though I don’t think your shirt designs are any good. Also the problem with trump is that even if he tried his hardest, it will take far too long to reform the american education system and make the economy competitive again. It will collapse with the petro dollar before that time comes and america will become a 3rd world country. It is inevitable but atleast that filthy socialist Bernie would buy some time. Hilary is a criminally insane cunt lol. Even Rome had to fall and the US is no different. But ya work on your designs. I’ve learned to use some powerful image editing software if you’d like a hand.

    • Very interesting video Cici. I liked his idea of Memeplex.

      Yeah since 4/9 I have been having a lot of realizations and my reality has been changing rapidly. Right now I am going through Growing pains, but I know that it will all pay off. It is true that all that really matter is the impact you have on others. Outside of that everything is meaningless.

      It has been good to see you around Way of The Olympian. I have plans to get this site generating more $ outside of Affiliate income.

      I feel the same way about the designs. The designer I hired was terrible so I fired him. Email me in the contact form I am interested in working out a deal.
