1st run beat it with something like 94% items, 99% map, with atleast 4 secret worlds, in about 20:13 hours with heat seeker ...(made the last optional miniboss before Athetos more managable and easier to complete than some other bosses..)
Anyways, I joined this forum to comment about the symbolism behind this game as The Master DS has brought to mind a very revealing insight about metaphors to life and the power of storytelling..
To me, I somewhat am gathering the notion that the older Trace, Athetos, was on a quest for immortality.. His pursuit of knowledge led him to exploration of other worlds within worlds, or dimensions....Laser Lab would deal with focused and highly concentrated light, who is to say what happens when we utilize two lasers to converge? There has been numerous research into the subject in regards to harmonics and acoustics. Specifically, there is a video on youtube about sound waves at certain frequencies being able to levitate objects where two sources converge. Elsewhere there is research showing the ability to put out fires with deeper or longer waves akin to bass effect. Another source that further converges with the theme of intersecting varying frequencies of light (electro-magnetic spectrum), would be with the ancient indigenous cultures of Africa and their geometrical 'homes' which contained no windows or entrances. There is evidence that shows these feminine or curved line structures emit a certain frequency, tone or harmonic that amplifies different morphic fields of the Earth, such that they affect the surrounding environment, presence and habitat. This is more vividly revealed with the inability to use satellite phones within these structures. Also GPS coordinates around the structure show a variance of great miles. This being said they have found thousands of 'tools' that these beings used, which ring like a bell when struck. Some of the objects terminate in a conical point. The congruence or inference that Michael Tellinger reveals is the correlation with Coral Sand Castle or Rock Gate in florida, created by one man, Ed Leedskalnin. Some of the coral blocks he quarried weighed over 80 tons. Moved by what many would imply would be frequency modulation of sound/electricity. There is a story about two children witnessing him lift the blocks from the road onto a truck, whose driver was intructed to walk away and come back, with two ice cream cones from his hands. Aligning the two cones and whatever method such as specific sound or electrical frequencies could perhaps reverse the magnetic polarity of anything, allowing it to levitate. This being said, would perhaps allude to the notion of the Annunaki or creator gods (the lowercase gods [plural]) revealed in the bible and the tools they might of utilized given that the weight and size of the stone 'bell' tools found in Africa would better fit the stature of a being being 12-15 feet tall. According to various Sumerian clay tablets translations, these creator gods with a superior science (axiom verge), seeded the human race for the purpose of mining gold from this realm to attempt at saving theirs.... The problem I have with this would be with the implications behind yet another 'theory' and how earth is in quarantine.. To the effect that there is substantial evidence for the avid seeker which points to a Flat Earth model, ala the UN flag (right in our faces..). To wit, the farthest reaching implications of this search reveal the notion of a firmament or dome... beyond the ring of Anartica, which circles the flat earth. In fact history shows there were high altitude nuclear tests carried out by the Soviets and USA back in the late 1950s, some of which consisted of 3.8 megatons (Little Boy used on Japan back in WW2 was only 12-18 kilotons).. One question that comes to mind would be what are we trying to blow up at such high altitude? ...I've most likely lost most people at this point, yet many earth sciences are succinct with a flat earth model, thus yielding far simpler physics or geometry of the universe we live in. Its not my place to convince anyone. But I do hope to inspire deeper inquiry rather than abject denial. In effect it is very very ironic in a lot of ways that the cognitive dissonance the institutionalized world has been indoctrinating us thwarts the facts of what is..
in a lot of ways I find the game to be a great satire or irony about Life. The endings are consistent with the 'playstyle', in that with close to 100% completion reveals Athetos returning to Trace and stating 'it's no use fighting yourself and that it's time to wake up', perhaps a reflection of the persons intent to 'master' or completely beat a proxy or simulated reality aka video game, in which we project our conscious mind. The game in and of itself is a paradox or caught in a catch 22.. In that the ego or Athetos and his pursuit for immortality and the quest of knowledge led to an imbalance and disconnect with the other creative principle, that of the feminine. This can be easily seen in our contemporary culture with the perversion of coitus and the far deeper philosophical ontological notions. If we are subjected to a hyper stimulated reality with excess of the Feminine principle (666), we become too fixated on the physicality of experience and the Yang or masculine principle, as a result, becomes too overbearing.. The sacredness of yin having been convoluted and systematically eradicated with the industrialized machinations of the technocratic world are more succinct with the paradigm of Athetos, having polluted the subtle realms of thought and the pattern mind to such an extent that the 'reality' has led to a warped mutated proxy or Rusalki type of being that is incongruent with the purer organic realm of existence. The vast knowledge and intelligence behind these ascended machine technologies understand the purpose of the human expression and seek to destroy the timeline (viz Steins Gate, Terminator, Days of Future Past, etc) of an inferior 'timeline'. In many ways the clones, such as Trace, could be symbolic of reincarnation and the karmic wheel of samsara, in that this existence of Maya (dream), is a shadow of the true reality, which is harmonic or Light, bringing credence to various religious doctrines and the quest/purpose of enlightenment, to awaken to the ALL, or one universal mind, given that we each are individual monads of source. The Catch 22 is that we cannot utilize the construct of the Mind to escape the illusion of reality, for it is not the power of the mind alone that will avow one the escape velocity to ascend, but that of the Heart or Core aligned with Source being our true power; our emotions are the catalysts of one's experience.
Thus the game plays to our ego. In that it is no use fighting yourself and that it's time to wake up. The world as we know it is undergoing great shifts and changes. Those that are in denial about the instability of the world economy or ecosystem are still asleep.. Yet there will be no escaping 'it'. We all will be affected and will have to choose a side, as we can no longer stay on the fence. Our biology is being catalyzed at very high frequency ranges that is altering our genetic code, should we be aware or allow it, as we align with the center of the 'milky way galaxy' or great central sun. As everything increases in frequency or oscillation rate, the ability for ourselves to manifest our subconsious thoughts becomes greater. There is a choice to align with either the positive or negative polarity. One being the absence of the other. Love is the creative force in the universe and its opposite is fear or separation...
Its been a long hour or so writing this, so I will stop here. Let the reader take heart in knowing that this is just a story. A narrative of ideas, perhaps a reflection of deeper realities that lie hidden before our very eyes. The question is up for you to decide.
If there is one thing I will share that has avowed me greater peace of mind, it is my new found practice of Surya Yoga, Togal, or sun gazing, which is considered perhaps the highest and fastest path to union. Understand Nature and it will reveal the same source, Light out of darkness; two sides to one coin... Mayans considered zero to be the most significant number, as it is out of infinite potential that One arises..
We are the creators in our experience of either heaven or hell... Peace on earth is possible. But like the 100th monkey experiment, we need enough willing beacons to catalyze ones' awareness to be conducive and in harmony with the sacred relations of all our physical, mental, and emotional life experiences.
Practicing truth saying and discernment are key. In the beginning was the Word (Sound). Created in the image (reflective inceptions of first source). Back to purity of word (thought/expression), frees oneself from the dichotomy of duality as one begins to awaken to the greater awareness of ALL that IS.
Love and Light.
