Collect enough material to recreate the stars

Katamarithe most hilarious, bizarre and interesting puzzle action video game of all time. 

The plot concerns a magical, highly adhesive ball called a katamari, which rolls around various locations. It collects increasingly larger objects, everything from thumbtacks to human beings to monuments to baseball stadiums, until the ball has eventually grown massive enough to become a star. 

Who thinks this stuff up?

Playing the game, however, is surprisingly satisfying. And my theory is, it’s because katamari mirrors something that is fundamentally human. 

Growth. The exhilarating moment by moment process of expansion and evolution that we call life. And the fact that anything can stick to us and make us grow. It’s just a matter of attention and intention. 

Because if we contract into scarcity, framing our experiences as mistakes, failures, throwaways and dumbass wastes of time, then we have not grown one bit. 

But if we expand into abundance, treating everything is an ingredient in the greater self which we are building, then we can collect enough material to recreate the stars. 

If you think the world has figured out a system to keep you from growing, you are wrong. Human being are magical, highly adhesive beings whose divine inheritance is to grow as massive as they choose. 

Take it from a guy who has been wearing a nametag every day for twenty years. 

Being sticky is a good thing. 

It’s how we attract people and experiences which enhance our potential. 


Did you let this day pass without personal growth?
