I had a dream a few days ago.
In my dream, I was watching someone playing the game that is like a “SimCity” which I had played when I was a schoolchild. But the map of the game was not as a game but it was an exactly the world map as I already knew it.
At first, he built a house and a field around the river. The house became a village then a town, the population was getting bigger and according to it and the player’s money was increasing.
In the meantime, he put the water boards and the electric power companies around town, and connected each house and made a system which was getting money from each house, nature was destroyed day by day but the town was getting bigger and the player’s money was increasing a lot.
In the meantime, he put the big road, the airport, the port and made traffic and sold something for transportation and the population and all the towns were getting bigger in a flash and the player’s money was increasing too much from the energy selling of them but the nature was destroyed and the fields and the animals were decreasing in a flash.
In the meantime, he put the new field which can make a lot with new seeds and agricultural chemicals, made a system which needs to be bought again every year, Also they made a system of making the animals for only to be eaten by people and the player’s money was still increasing but the nature and the animals were becoming fake.
In the meantime, at the next, the town became old and people didn’t want to buy the food, energy from somebody and they made it by themselves and the player’s money stopped increasing. A lot of criticism comments from citizens covered the screen and I thought it was time to Game Over but at that moment, the Two hidden commands appeared out of nowhere in front us.
“Keep increasing player’s money with destructive business” or “Making a good society by regeneration business with player’s money”, then as soon as somebody saw it, they selected the first command.
At first, he built their government in each town, he paid money for mass media, those criticism comments disappeared from the screen, then he put the military installations everywhere. he made a trigger fight between innocent citizens and he was getting huge player’s money from the defense industry, from the citizens. Of course, a lot of nature and animals and the town also was destroyed in a flash, the population had decreased to less than half of them but he made a new town in the same way I mentioned above, and he got a lot of money for it again.
After that, he was able to continue to get a lot of money by the hidden command. He didn’t care how much population was there, how much nature and animals left, what was I thinking next to him, he just looked at the number of the player’s money increasing.
I was getting bored and I asked him to let’s select other hidden command but he ignored it.
But after continuing to select the same command a lot of times, the new emergencies problem appeared from the easiest small island of the world’s map.
The game warned us that some part of the population started to doubt that some player controls this game and chooses the command. Then the part of them getting bigger and bigger and they are trying to change the government which he made and they want to make him choose another command: “Making a good society by regeneration business with player’s money” under the mass media.
He tried to settle their problem in a panic, controlled the government and mass media more strictly but the force of them didn’t stop. Then finally, he chose the command from the easiest small island of the world map: government→action→election→
Then I suddenly woke up from that dream.
I don’t know what was going on from that time and I also don’t know who was playing that game with me. It was just a dream which I had a few days ago, and I hope that It was the dream which I saw it while I was sleeping. But It is true that I got a shock after I saw this dream because my recommendation candidate Yohei Miyake who I wrote about in my last few posts, lost the Japanese house of councilors and also, we couldn’t stop 2/3 seats of the agreement party of the constitutional amendment.
I got a shock about that and I also can’t believe it because a lot of articles exposed an injustice of this election and I surely saw the huge movement of a lot of people covering the street and awaken from the control of the government by his words even though, he got over 250,000 votes.
In my dream, somebody commanded “election” from “government”. It means that “election” is just the way to justify himself, a scenario of his world already decided and whatever is right, if the government counts votes and the mass media announces it whatever happens.
I have studied a lot of things which I wasn’t interested in throughout 18 days of this election festival and him. “election”, “government” “constitution”, “politics”, “nation”, words which I didn’t know exactly, have another huge world as I am no match for it. Actually, I lost what I can believe in this world in those days. All things around me already decided by some huge power. However, That’s why I think that I have to believe in myself. Seeing by my eyes, hearing by my ears, thinking by my brain, sharing with my friends and believing in my life.
Then I want to say my opinion.
“Pass me your controller for a while, I want to see the world which we chose in another way. Playing the game in 2 persons is more interesting than by yourself, isn’t it?”
