The Journey to Wild Divine is a computer video game. The game basically takes you on the hero’s journey. Ho hum, right? I’m not much of a video game player.
The novelty of this game, thought, is that it comes with three devices you clip onto the fingertips of your non-mouse hand. The devices read your heartbeat and galvanic skin response (bioelectricity), and you progress through the game by changing your state.
If nothing else, I can learn how to change my state more easily. It promises to make that fun.
I installed it last night. There’s a screen where you can see its readings of your heartbeat. My skin was a little dry. After putting hand lotion on those fingertips and replacing the devices, I got a strong reading.
I started to play the game but got an error, and it was bedtime. Will debug when I have time.
Getting it was a lot of fun! The NLP meetup was Tuesday at Unity Center on Dessau Rd. Unity Center has been sold and will be taken over by a bunch of labyrinth-loving Baptists in September. The bookstore there, Sacred Shelf, is going out of business. The game, which sells for $300, had a sticker for $160. I’d checked my bank balance earlier that day and had the money, so I decided to buy it. It’s been on my wish list for at least a year.
Then I learned at the register that it was marked down 50%, so I got it for $80. I love bargains!
It felt like it was meant to be, me and The Journey to Wild Divine.
