My husband got a call from his neighbor asking him if he could repair the alientube on his property. It was just sitting there in a dusty pile in the sun. I went to the store, bought it, and it was already broken! I don’t know what I was thinking, but I was definitely on a self-assessment journey.
Alientube, the popular water filter designed to make your own filtered water, is no longer working with some of the most popular aliments. The reason for this is because it’s been “patched” with a new algorithm that can’t find some of the ingredients in the water. This is a known issue with all similar products and a big reason why they’re not working. It seems to be a widespread problem. I’ve also noticed that the water is already pretty “clean” now.
I was on a self-assessment journey a long time ago, and I really enjoyed it. What I liked was that I could ask one question and the answer would be completely different than the question. That really was a fun way to find out about myself, I guess. But it has been a while since I had a self-assessment challenge. I guess I just feel like I need to work on it.
The problem is that in recent years there has been a trend of online self-assessments. I remember hearing about this thing called the “Awareness Movement,” and it seemed like the internet was full of people with these crazy, weird ideas about how to improve their lives. Well, I’m a bit of a skeptic of all things “mind-blowing,” so I’m not sure I get it.
The problem seems to be that a lot of these self-assessments are more about how to get to the next level of self-awareness than about improving your life. For instance, while it may be crazy for me to like to be a vegetarian, I can definitely see how it would improve my life. A vegetarian might be much more likely to eat only vegetarian food. And so on.
But the thing is, it’s not crazy, or insane, or anything like that. It’s just different. It’s a different way of being. It’s also different when one decides to be one thing rather than another.
Being different is one of the most important things to learn for any kind of self-awareness and it’s a thing that happens to us all of the time. It’s how we learn to be less of ourselves.
Its called self-awareness. Its not some mysterious secret passed down from ancient times. Its something that you have to learn for yourself. Its something you can do, you can learn, and you can take your life into your own hands.
Alientube isn’t just our own game, it’s also a tool to help us learn about ourselves and what we want to become. The best example of this is “The One That Got Away” aka the game where we learn who our closest friend is, and how to avoid her in the future. The game is a great example of how we can use Alientube to learn about ourselves, and even how to avoid our own mistakes.
Alientube may not be ready for prime time, but it is so much more than that. You can use it to learn your weaknesses, your successes, and even your weaknesses. In our recent video interview with the developer, he mentioned that the game has a pretty deep knowledge of how to defeat most of the enemies you’ll encounter. You can use this knowledge to your advantage and know what to expect from each of these enemy types.
