Richard Ellis Talks

The gaming world is filled with non-player characters, or "NPCs" that fill space and have no interaction with the player or the outcome of the game. Here's the good news: Christians aren't NPCs! We can -- and should -- live our faith journey as active participants. In God's world, everyone matters and is important, regardless of skill, qualification, or past failure. In fact, it's only through His strength and power that we're able to win in the game called "Life".

In our enlightening discussion, we take a deep dive into Dolores Cannon's theory on incarnations and Paramahansa's 'carnation wheel' idea, exploring how these perspectives can be reconciled despite their differences. We probe into the concept of 'loopers' and 'drip downs,' and navigate the murky waters of ego and its role in understanding reincarnations.As we journey further, we find ourselves under the shadowy veil of cults, occult practices, child sacrifice, and pedophilia. We ponder how acknowledging these dark forces intertwines with our quest to understand Christ and find inner peace. Walking through the path of redemption and unity, we examine the transformative process of emerging from darkness and embracing light, and how our hearts serve as a portal back to unity. Together, we leave no stone unturned as we discuss complex matters such as karma, salvation, compassion, personal responsibility, and how every choice we make leads us down different paths.As our journey unfolds, we delve into intriguing topics like Human Design Profiles, trauma-based programming, and the Church's manipulation of access to spiritual truth. Gleaning insights from Akashic readings, we discuss the importance of patience and the challenges of balancing expectations and boundaries. We also explore our psychic abilities, share our dark night of the soul experiences, and consider the potential of reading Akashic records as a service to others. This episode is a labyrinth of thought-provoking ideas and transformative discussions - a journey for those seeking deeper understanding and inner peace.Timecodes(00:00:00) - Understanding Different Perspectives on Incarnations(00:03:48) - NPCs and Spiritual Perspectives(00:07:57) - Journey to Redemption and Unity(00:12:41) - Exploring Karma, Salvation, and Compassion(00:23:20) - Regrets, Ignorance, and Fulfilling Dreams(00:36:53) - Trauma, Religion, and Human Design Profiles(00:41:34) - Balancing Expectations and Boundaries in Akashic Readings(00:53:32) - Imposters and Psychic Awakening DiscussionIntro/Outro Music Producer: Don KinIG: https://www.instagram.com/donkinmusic/Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/44QKqKsd81oJEBKffwdFfPSuper grateful for this guy ^Support the showPatreon Support Become an Episode Producer: https://patreon.com/travelingtoconsciousness

Brace yourselves for a mind-bending ride! Your pals Renix and Captain Chop challenge you to question your comfort zones as we dive into the eerie realms of the NPC (Non-Playable Characters) Theory and the Simulation Hypothesis. Could we all be living in a computer program, irrevocably bound to the whims of a set algorithm? Are our actions premeditated by an unseen code, just like the characters in the mind-twisting movie, 'Source Code'? This episode will question your understanding of reality, autonomy, and the very foundations of your individuality. The rabbit hole goes deeper. What if I told you our everyday life is swarming with NPCs, reminiscent of our interactions with video game characters? We engage with this wild concept, drawing intriguing parallels with our mundane routines. Plus, we discuss how a name, specifically that of Elon Musk's child, could be an uncanny nod to this peculiar theory. As a cherry on top, we examine the striking similarities between social media giants, Twitter and Facebook's new 'Threads', and what this resemblance could mean for our digital privacy. So, gear up and join us in this enthralling journey towards the edge of perception and beyond!Support the showFollow us on Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter.

Sections played: Finished the game! Issues covered: potential NPCs, getting misled by the star, hating the missing buttons, good reveals on secret doors, unmotivated puzzles, brute force, accidentally solving a puzzle, up into a small enclosed space, not finding the Drow, wanting more of a sense of NPC presence, leaning into narrative and game-iness, using game-iness to add drama, simulation elements in D&D, being more naturalistic, spiking a door vs more elaborate narrative elements, having to abstract rest mechanics, having consequences for time advancing, JRPGs and rest mechanics, dying many times to the beholder, getting so much of the map connecting moments, identifying magic items, using enemies as clues via audio, the silent mind-flayers, not seeing the dice and having the opportunity to balance, terrifying appearance of Xanathar, being unprepared, not seeing all of the beholder effects, respawning monsters, not being able to level up your mages enough, running away from Xanathar, mouse panic, using collision audio to know where he was, wand spamming, being teleported into the final room, not understanding the teleporters, portraits and the art style, not knowing when to stop pushing, giving impressions through simple art, adding audio to later games, D&D of particular eras. Games, people, and influences mentioned or discussed: The Crystal Shard, Ultima Underworld, Temple of Elemental Evil, Fallout, Baldur's Gate III, Pool of Radiance, Star Wars, William Shatner, Sierra, LucasArts, Diablo (series), Kirk Hamilton, Aaron Evers, Mark Garcia.  Next time: Takeaways and mail bag Twitch: brettdouville or timlongojr, instagram:timlongojr, Twitter: @timlongojr and @devgameclub Discord DevGameClub@gmail.com

Matt Kim is the technical creative director at inworld.ai creating demos to show off their NPC platform, which was featured in my previous episode #1263 in the MeetWol demo by Liquid City and Niantic. I was really impressed with how my interactions with inworld.ai seemed to go beyond the limitations of ChatGPT and existing tech demos of large language models. Their website elaborates on how they're taking NPCs to the next level by saying how they add, "configurable safety, knowledge, memory, narrative controls, multimodality, and more. Craft characters with distinct personalities and contextual awareness that stay in-world. Seamlessly integrate into real-time applications, with optimization for scale and performance built-in." The low-latency responses is one of the more noticeable features, which makes a huge difference. I had a chance to catch up with Kim at AWE to dig into a bit more of some of the features that they've built for NPCs on their inworld.ai platform.

I typically refrain from commenting on trending topics, but I found myself unable to resist discussing this particular one. An unusual (to say the least) TikTok trend has emerged, where users live-stream themselves portraying an “NPC”—essentially an automated “non-player character” with pre-written dialogue. This includes uttering nonsensical phrases like “ice cream so good” in response to gifts from their audience. This trend is spreading rapidly and leaving many of us utterly perplexed. NPCs, or “non-player characters,” are common elements within various video games. These characters aren't under the player's control but engage with players through predetermined dialogue to drive the storyline. The mechanical demeanor of these characters has led to comparisons, inspiring the name of the TikTok NPC trend. In this episode, I'll share my perspective on this trend through my personal experiences, having been involved in sex work and online streaming previously. Is this all harmless entertainment, or does it highlight a more significant concern where we willingly commodify ourselves for financial gain? How far will we allow this to go? Join me as I delve into this dystopian scenario. Topics explored and questions answered in this episode: ★ What is an NPC? ★ What is the NPC meme and how and when did it begin trending?  ★ What is the NPC trend on TikTok?★ What is NPC streaming and how much do NPC streamers make?★ What impact does this robotic trend-following behavior have on us as a collective?  ★ Does social media make it easier for us to dehumanize one another?★ How in the hell do we make our way out of this dystopian nightmare? TO SIGN UP FOR MY FREE SUBSTACK NEWSLETTER: click here. TO JOIN THE COMMUNITY ON PATREON, click here. TO LISTEN TO MY SECOND PODCAST, NIGHT NIGHT BITCH: Search “Night Night Bitch” on your favorite podcast player (click here to listen on Spotify or here to listen on Apple Podcasts.) Disclaimer: information contained in this podcast episode is for educational purposes only and is not intended as a substitute for treatment or consultation with a licensed mental health professional. acast+ audio-only listener benefits https://plus.acast.com/s/back-from-the-borderline.
