The fact is, the majority of our actions and thoughts are on autopilot. This isn’t a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
The problem is when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us. Whereas a person with self-awareness is able to exercise a little meta-cognition and say, “Hmm… every time my sister calls me and asks for money, I end up drinking a lot of vodkas.
This is the same problem that makes me feel like I’m in a time loop in every waking moment. For every action, I have to have an equal and opposite reaction. That means that the instant I open my wallet, expect to see a bill, and spend the money, I have to have a reaction like, Uh, that was actually a good idea. I’ll just put the money away (or at least in my pocket) and forget about it.
This is the reason I don’t like watching The Time Loop. The movie is about a man who’s trying to take over the world in the future, but the main character is constantly having his life cut short by bad things happening to him. This is the same thing that happens to us: We have to react immediately to everything that goes wrong, but we don’t have to worry about it happening. This is why we have to put the groceries away before we open the fridge.
And that’s why we should NEVER, EVER put the groceries away.
The main character is a really interesting person who lives in a bubble, so he’s supposed to be the one who wakes up in the morning and finds out that all of his friends are asleep on the couch. He knows his mom is there by now, so is she the main character.
In the game, Colt wakes up in the morning and finds out that his friends have all died. That’s when he becomes the main character because his friends were all pretty important in their own right. Colt is a bit of a loner, but he also has a lot of friends. They aren’t just his friends, they’re important people who he had a good relationship with. The reason why he wakes up in the morning is because his mom died.
If you’re the kind of person who likes to take a while to sort things out, you may want to start writing this book.
In Deathloop, all of the main characters wake up in the morning, not because they were sleeping, but because they were being murdered. We then learn that Colt has the ability to wake people up in their dreams, and that this ability is what allows him to be the main character. This ability is called jai mata.
