Re: [-empyre-] Politics, Reality, Violance and a video game

well i have also only been skimming very lightly this discussion.
However, i am very carefull about slipping the terms of 'spirital and
gaming' together. But maybe you are interested in some projects i have
been undertaking  under the name of  sister O divination's. These are
often connected multi nodel networked performances using collaborative
software. sister O is a character, but i would not say that her
performances/ appearances would go under the gaming genre.  But regarding
media divinations / transformations this work intitially came out of a 3
month research duration in the putomayo region in South Colombian Amazon
with the Sharmans living there exploring plants/ song/ dance as old


media divinations:

Another project by sister O trinity was we used icq chat software to ask
questions and trouble shoot.And Keyworx software where Numerical data that
contains an analysis of the output of mouse action, is put up to see the
mouse movements of each other. We use our keyboard module to ask the
teleconnected Ouija board questions, it is a conduit to the underwater
base. The sister O trinity trys to sense the flow , they ask a question
and hold their finger on the mouse to see which letters are highlighted in
order to see what the flows say from the underwater database of subjugated

Maybe this is of some interest to you
