MMO Games Concept: Universal Avatar Service

Hello All,

For those of you that are PC gamers that have played multiple MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) game worlds in the course of your life so far. Will know that in each game world you play on your basically creating your avatar from scratch. What if you don't have to go that route any longer? What if you had the choice to play a "Master Avatar" that is created in your main MMO and can be transferred to other MMOG within reason. How many of you would enjoy such an option offered by a game publisher that hosts multiple MMO game titles? Let's say what if: SOE (Sony Online Entertainment), NC Soft, iJJi, Nexon, Aeria, and a lesser extent EA Games or Turbine Entertainment.

All of those game publishers if not others that offer 3 or more MMO game titles in their catalog. Could offer a value added option of the "Universal Avatar Service" or (UAS) for a shorthand acronym from now on in this description. I'll use references of SOE in my examples since I'm most familiar with their selection of MMO game titles.

Consider SOE that offers a premium subscriber plan called "Station Access" at $30 US each month. That a premium subscriber plan could offer already to its members at no additional charge minus some "up sell" Ala carte charges explained later on. For those game publishers listed above that are F2P business model mostly. Than a "Universal Avatar Service or (UAS)" can be utilized as an account upgrade option. If not for those F2P game publishers can offer a (UAS) feature at $10 to $20 US at a one time fee. Also the game publisher like SOE, NC Soft, EA Games (That owns Mythic Entertainment & Origin Systems makers of "Ultima Online") can choose to offer a (UAS) service plan as an account upgrade option. Can charge the aforementioned $10 to $20 one time fee plus an additional $3 to $5 US dollars each month. (if it wasn't offered via a premium subscriber plan like SOE's "Station Access")

Now that the general pricing scheme has been explained minus the would be "up sell" charges in getting the attention of the game publishers. This is what a "Universal Avatar Service" plan is all about.

First, continuing with SOE MMO game titles as per the examples in which they offer. That a (UAS) player account that creates a player character in their main MMO game world of choice. Can transfer or export that player race to all other MMO game worlds, no matter if the game theme or lore is utterly different. For example, picture "Star Wars Galaxies" where a player creates a "Wookie" as a player race. With a "Universal Avatar Service" plan that player can export their "Wookie" avatar into all other SOE MMO games as an exclusive option. Be it: Everquest, Everquest 2, Planetside, Vanguard, Free Realms, the upcoming MMO's of "The Agency or DC Online Universe". The only difference is how that "Wookie" player avatar will appear due to the different graphic engine's in each MMO game world. But, all the racial traits of that "Wookie" will be maintained in all game worlds that the player wishes to explore within the SOE MMO games catalog they host.

Second, a player with a (UAS) account will create a "Universal Surname" for their master avatar. Where the first name can be altered from MMO game world to game world. But the family name per say would be the universal identifier of such a master avatar played in numerous game worlds.

Third, the (UAS) account will maintain the same gender of their master avatar in all game worlds. If they wish to alter the gender of the avatar in another game world this is where one of the two aforementioned "Up sell" charges is utilized. For a fee of anywhere $3 to $5 US dollars the player can alter the gender of their master avatar for that one particular MMO game world they have just entered.

Fourth, this feature is one of the most important ones that the base player class or skill set can be maintained as a form of continuity across all game worlds. The (UAS) account will have the option to exercise by their choice to keep the base player class or skill set. Which they had in their main MMO game world, when the (UAS) first began.

So if that aforementioned player "Wookie" was a "Doctor" in "Star Wars Galaxies" they'll have the option of being a "Templar" in "Everquest 2". One base class or profession in-game if not a skill set for a MMO game world that uses a skill tree system instead. Can be transferred from game world to game world at the players discretion. Of course the player can opt to go with another class or skill set instead. Without feeling the need to being pigeon holed in game play, but at least it is an option for them to explore.

If the (UAS) player chooses to keep their main class or skill set into another MMO game world. They'll have the second opportunity of the next "Up sell" by the game publisher. That for an additional fee say $10 to $15 US a player can opt to be given a player character at a mid level range in game play. For example in a game world with a level cap at 50 can opt for a level 25 avatar in the base player class or skill set that was transferred to this new game world. What this offers is a need to avoid the newbie content at the outset of the game. But not cheating the player out of the high end game content. Which they'll still have to earn via game play achievements just like the general population in that particular game world. This also offers the player the chance to avoid at least up to a mid range player character. From replaying the same base player class or skill set in effort that was already invested in their main MMO game title.

Fifth, SOE had offered for a time a player character service called "Station Players". For their games of Everquest, Everquest 2, and Vanguard which included player stat tracking, leader board's and rankings, personal photo galleries, item database, rag doll profile picture with stats of personal equipment being shown. All of these offerings comes with a "Universal Avatar Service" plan at the outset. It will be offered on a personal web page with tabbed tracking results just like SOE "Station Players" was designed to offer. But, also other players can right click the player avatar's in that particular game world and inspect them. Seeing similar information from that one or more game worlds the (UAS) exists within. It is up to the (UAS) player to offer publicly or restrict the information or pictures that are shown in privacy permissions.

Another secondary offering of this feature is for those online game communities that have game divisions in multiple MMO games. Where 3 to 5 (UAS) players or more are listed in any one particular guild in-game. The guild stats, rankings, photo's, wealth holdings, etc... will be tracked as a courtesy. So the "Universal Avatar Service" players that belong to a mutual guild that plays at multiple MMO game worlds from that one particular game publisher. Will have this added incentive to their game play sessions in many MMO game worlds.

So to recap the "Universal Avatar Service" plan will have a player account the option to export from their main MMO game title. Their player race, class / skill set (if so desired and pay extra for a mid range character), universal surname, gender (a fee to alter a player gender per game title), and a player character tracking stats and progress service across multiple MMO's (including their guild if it qualifies). All of these features can be transferred to any number of MMO game titles that such a particular game publisher offers. Within their present to future inventory of MMO game titles.

This is a shot in the arm of premium subscriber plans for those game publishers that base their business on game subscribers. If not F2P (Free to Play) game publishers offering such an upgrade account option at an added fee via a micro-transaction store front. The days of redundancy in game play can be changed from its current model for gamers into the creation of a "Master Avatar" across numerous game world titles. It is up to the game publisher if they so wish to pursue it as an offering for their installed customer base.

Television Concept: Tv Sets With Virtual Remote Controls

Hello All,

With Christmas only two days away here in my part of sunny Florida. How many of you would enjoy a television of tomorrow available today?

No I'm not speaking of those 3-D televisions with the clunky 3D glasses in order to get an eventual migraine headache. How about a television that allows the user to be their own "Remote Control". Where through voice recognition and wireless motion controller technology. The days of fumbling for a remote control under the couch cushions are gone.

Television remote control technology has been with us for about 25 to 30 years or so. Yes, its gotten way more sophisticated by adding more programmable features and confusing buttons. Where the remote control of today appears more like a magical wand of a techno wizard.

Picture, where you the TV user can control and interact with your television either by voice commands. Such as loudly saying "TV On, TV Channel 46, TV Surf My Favorite Channels, and of course TV Off". Noting that when addressing the television you can select the default "TV" nickname or create your own. So there won't be any confusion when addressing your television for a verbal command.

What about if your not interested in speaking commands like to a faithful domestic pet, albeit electronic in this case. You care to use hand or arm gestures via a wireless motion controller technology to prompt the television to your desired results. Similar to today's Microsoft Xbox 360 "Kinnect" technology that has recently debuted for its video game console. Where you the TV viewer can input motions within the range of the TVs motion camera to execute commands. Like waving your hands like you would to a person saying hello, but in this case it turns on your television. Or clapping your hands in order to turn off the television. Like the classic "Clapper" technology of years past to turn on or off lamps and so forth. Of course noting if clapping the TV virtual remote system would need safe guards. To avoid false sounds like a thunderstorm lightening clap triggering the television each time for its programmed input command.

There can be of course a combination of the two virtual remote control input commands used in tandem. Like the clapping that both triggers the sound portion of the voice recognition platform and the wireless motion controller of the TV set. Or a TV viewer says "Alice (as the TVs nickname) go to channel 46 and the TV viewer also waves their hand to cancel that command request at the last moment."

The virtual remote control will also have a portion of the TV screen. Say like a quarter of the screen that is a dedicated command screen that pop's on or off. When the TV viewer makes their command inputs, be it voice or motion controller. The virtual command screen that pops up is the equivalent of today's remote control. It also acts as a confirmation page that the television has accurately heard or seen via motions your input commands to execute. This virtual command screen can be pre-positioned to be anywhere on the screen that the user feels most comfortable with in viewing. For example be it in the center of the TV screen or one of its four corners.

In the future such virtual remote control televisions can have additional layers of interactivity. Such as advertisers promoting a new product on TV. Where the TV viewer either by a voice command input or by a pre-selected motion gesture would request additional information or a product discount coupon. Where the TV viewers information such as postal address is securely stored on a users TV set.

The voice recognition and wireless motion controller platform can also allow the original television owner. To create a "Master Password" whereby if the television is ever stolen when plugged into another location as per a physical postal address. If the "Master Password" isn't spoken and gestured the television won't operate. And it'll trigger an alert when its connected to a cable or satellite dish connection other than its own. (at its predefined physical postal address)

The added convenience and depth of interactivity can only grow with a virtual remote controlled enabled television. Be it with voice recognition or wireless motion control platforms as part of a brand new stand alone television set or purchased as an additional peripheral for the Television.

Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

It's that time of the month again for another original trio of "Jewels of Truth" to be shared.

I hope many of you are preparing well and enjoying this festive time of the year. No matter your faith this is often a time to rekindle our relationships with one another. To value what is good and cherish the rest with a spirit of thanksgiving and delight.

A week ago I finished writing my 3rd Volume to the "Jewels of Truth" series. As I stated in my last entry back in November that each volume consists of 365 all original spiritual wisdom statements and/or proverbs. So my running total to date is 1098, so technically I've started to write volume 4. :o) Albeit writing the material is one thing for me, another more time consuming is compiling it into a proper manuscript. Since I write all this material by hand and then edit and transcribe it to digital form when I'm able to do so. I'm still going at a snails pace of compiling the manuscript of volume 2 needing another 109 statements to be set into place. With all likelihood I'll publish or more likely self-publish via "iUniverse" itself. Much like i did with Volume 1 "Jewels of Truth: A Soul Odyssey Within".

Although one day I do hope that I find myself a literally agent within the field of spirituality. Or knowing synchronicity I hope a good one finds me. Since I seem to lack the business acumen needed in the world of publishing much less have a proper marketing budget of my own. That will give this spiritual wisdom material of mine its proper due in the fullness of time.

Today's three "Jewels of Truth" topics cover the areas of: a Rainbow, Vigilance, and Magic. Do note that statement #919 was originally shared on this blog site on December 18th, 2008 which was the same day it was written. It was one of those that was very inspiring for me to share just like the recent #1088 back in late November of this year.

So without a further adieu here are spiritual wisdom statements: #917, #918, and #920.



917) Our souls shine brightly like a rainbow of life. Where we are accompanied by many spiritual elements throughout our sojourn on this Earth of ours. In Spirit we are never alone, we constantly have the blessed company of our loves ones. Be they known to us in this lifetime or if they have been with us in numerous lifetimes. Each Spirit acting as a "Ray of Light" shines its own brilliance of a holy light within the "Rainbow" of our life. We are united in a common purpose, where ever we go be it safe or not on this Earth or beyond. Our heavenly companions surround our spirit as if a constant bubble of absolute love that only the Holy Spirit is capable of producing. Those that accept such a rainbow of heavenly unity shall walk in peace and with the grace of God(dess) always without fail. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

918) Those with a vigilant heart must always uphold the truth for the common good. Doing so permits transparency of the masses so as to govern with prudence and wise counsel. If the populace does not hold a government, a corporation, or any other institution in check. Than gross negligence, abuses of the system, or crimes will be committed without regard to safety, property, or the utmost general welfare for all that allows liberty to flourish.

Vigilance must occur in tandem with those who are honest brokers for the justice of the many. Otherwise there will be no accountability for the abuses or high crimes done to the State or its own citizenry. Without vigilance there is no hope for the highest good of all that are concerned for the agenda of the many. Vigilance is the sentinel of the astute and the considerate. For a place where justice is the highest and fairest regard for all who are of the "Light of God". ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

920) I believe and know in Magic! This magic is not pagan or based upon witchcraft. It is based on the sacred "Divinity" within all of us and the beauty of life itself. This magic I speak of manifests itself in synchronicities, omens, blessings, and most of all "Miracles" both small and large. Another word for this magic is the "Grace" of God(dess) that performs wonders that are dynamic and vibrantly alive.

All of life is singing in harmony. It is only when we quiet the turmoil around our minds & hearts and truly listen. Can we begin to hear the orchestra of God(dess) in its fullest splendor. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


The more alert we become to the blessing that flows into us through everything we touch, the more our own touch will bring blessing. ---David Steindl-Rast. "A Listening Heart".

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone. ---Audrey Hepburn.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and Third by experience, which is the bittersweet. ---Confucius.

Controversial Concept: Italian Corruption In The Garbage Industry

Hello All,

I first learned about the plight of the Italian citizenry of corrupt mafia driven garbage industry. When a few years ago the island of Sicily succumbed to the crisis. However since the mid 1990's or so the lovely city of Naples has the same dismal legacy of corruption with its garbage industry. Due to the Mafia or as they are known around the Campania region of Italy. As the "Camorra" a criminal syndicate like any other with historical ties to the country.

My controversial concept is only a partial drop in the bucket solution which is a form of Poetic Justice all its own. Basically it is two pronged one in classifying the "Camarro" or Mafia organizations throughout Italy as "Enemies of the State". Akin to an illegal militia, what this could do is make it the Italian military's problem. Similar as to how Mexico is dealing with its own decades long corruption along its northern border with the U.S..

The second prong of my proposal is seizing the villa estates of known Camarro Don leaders. If not corrupted Italian government officials and seize a portion of their assets and estates. Whereby the aforementioned villa estates that are out in the country side away from large density residential populations. Be Rezoned into Garbage Dumping Grounds this is the poetic justice to be served filthy and diseased to these villains of the State.

The villas can be seized under a national police or military raid. Since local police can not be trusted due to potential corruption with the local mafia groups. During seizure all property in furnishings, especially antiques and/or any vehicles become property of the State to be liquidated. In order to fund properly the enterprise of the garbage industry of converting this recently seized villa into a garbage dumping ground.

There have been reports since 2004 in Naples Italy of riots from citizens. Because of an incinerator being built that will affect the health of the local population. Other riots from citizens by placing a converted plot of land near a residential and agriculture vicinity into a garbage dumping ground. Where entire garbage trucks were set ablaze in protest. Needing police escorts for said garbage trucks in order to conduct their business.

The Italian government is in over its head with its current counter measures against corrupt Mafia and government officials. New bold initiatives to protect the citizens from these illegal predators of the State are required. My concept is but one that could be considered before more lives are endangered from riots to an environmental catastrophe.

A Heaven Beyond "Space And Time" As A Dimension

Hello All,

First, all of those here in the States I would like to wish you a "Happy Thanksgiving" holiday. May good company and delicious meals be served by family and friends alike.

Now just yesterday I finished writing "Jewels of Truth" statement #1088 which will be part of Volume 3. Where every Jewels of Truth volume consists of 365 statements slash proverbs. So subsequently this is part of the tail end of Volume 3 just days away from being completed at least in content. I'm still compiling Volume 2 at a snails pace however.

This statement #1088 inspired by the technique of automatic writing explains something of grand importance at least to those of faith and to meta-physicians. That the realm of "Heaven" is not in a specific place or occupies any sort of dimensional sovereign space. It is a realm or a reality beyond "Space & Time" completely and Statement #1088 explains it to a relative degree.



1088) We as humanity envision creation through the prism of "Time and Space". This is all well and good, except for the fact the realities of the Spirit realms are not governed by these principles. Picture a realm without any places to occupy. What comes to mind is nothing at all, but that is incomplete in conjecture. There is a something there and that ethereal substance or essence is a limitless energy field. A catalyst force that gave shape and meaning to the physical realities. Not as a parent, but as an extension of itself from the power of all souls on a macro scale. In which you so appropriately call "God(dess)" as a Divine entity.

Angels in spirit have no bodies per say and no height or width. Because Heaven is not occupied in a place. Its a field or realm of pure holy catalyst energy. Spirits have no scope of size to them because there is no space in the ethereal realms. What they do have is a sheer force or a magnitude of energetic authority due to the indwelling "Spirit of God". This is the distinction from the ethereal to the physical realities.

In terms of a ghost that is sighted with a given corporeal form as a person of sorts. That is just a psychic impression from the memory of that particular soul. Projecting its appearance into what was akin to a form of nostalgia. Not a mirage, but a memory given shape and an outlined psychic residue projected outward.

There is a Hope for science to grasp such a distinctive view of creation. If it is to grapple with its role in the great beyond, not just in "Outer Space", but within the realms of "Inner Space" that binds all realities as One. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

For those of you in Canada I hope your "Thanksgiving Holiday" was enjoyed well. Here in the States our "Thanksgiving" celebrations are just around the corner. Where we hopefully enjoy quality time with our friends and families. Sharing a good meal, and if able according to your budgets donate some time or money to a worthy charity of your choice.

Myself I'm more mindful of the plight of local food banks and our homeless population.

Without a further adieu, enjoy this months trio of all original "Jewels of Truth" statements on the topics of: Light, Intentions, and the Over soul.


914) We are the "Light of God" the Majestic. This light is the lifeblood of all creation from its simplest to most complex forms of being. We must by grace "Shine" truly so as to spread this glorious light of God(dess) within us all. In doing so we set each other free with a diversity that is only mirrored by the beautiful array of all mother nature herself. If we allow this spiritual Light within us to be hidden. We are committing an injustice not only to ourselves, but to all who are near and far from our reach.

This "Light of God" is abundant and without limit in its scope and supply. When we give of the Light of God(dess) within us. We act as co-creators by shining brightly and purely with unconditional Love. Our "Light" is alive and vibrant as a living praise to the Glory of God(dess). Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

915) Those who hold a sacred intention by unconditional love and have the power to purify themselves. Can achieve any miracle that is sought as long as they take the proper steps to achieve the desired results. That are for the highest grace for all life in terms of following the "Will of God". Those who can realize this wisdom fully can to wonders based on an absolute Love for the world and to a greater extent themselves. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

916) Our souls acting out as an incarnation of our "Highest Self" or known as the "Over Soul". Will inhabit various dimensional planes of existence be it from the numerous ethereal realms down to the physical common reality. Consider "Space & Time" as if a geometric circle representing our evolution in the span of a lifetime. Our "Highest Self" as a witness absorbs all of our stages of a mortal life. Be it our mothers womb, our physical birth, our total life, and our return to Spirit in passing from mortality. To us, such a life can be blessed by many decades of a linear time line in one or more regional landscapes. To the "Over Soul" all of this occurs in a realm without time nor space as a dimension. So all this occurs instantly like a compressed reality akin to a fast forward playback recording. Similar as to how those with an experience of their life flashing before their eyes near a hazardous encounter.

Now consider a multitude of our twin souls, who are a mirror images of ourselves having incarnations in other time lines within the space time continuum. Be it as humanity in our ever present world, or other lifetimes that are to be perceived as bizarre from our vantage point. Why this occurs is that God is hedging his bets in order to experience all realities be it our own or parallel ones. In order to be a living dynamic monotheist / plural-theist deity. So as to experience the totality of creation through his / her own creations. Not as a Divine puppet master, but as a loving parental figure that transcends fickle curiosity into the sublime affections of all life. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


He makes people pleased with him by making them first pleased with themselves. ---Lord Chesterfield.

If you dedicate yourself to service, the doors will open. ---Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan. "Alchemical Wisdom"

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen. ---Conan O'Brien.

Philanthropic Concept: Adopt A Scout Troop Program

Hello All,

This proposed concept is more up the alley of the various Scout Troops across America. Be they: Cub, Brownie, Boy, Girl, and Explorer Scout programs by Troop affiliation or up to a "Boys & Girls Club" outfit in a locality. Where we often see when driving our cars a municipality may have road signage of a "Adopt A Road Program". Well this is where my inspiration came in the form of Patron(s) through a local "Community Foundation" setting can set up a Trust Fund to support local area "Scout Troops". If a local Community Foundation is lacking in any given city than a foundation can be created. Where several patrons can pool together their resources to support such an initiative.

An executor or Trustee that oversees the expenditures from the "Scout Troop Fund" with collected receipts from the Troop staff. Can support a Troop by making sure that camping or other needed equipment is procured, well maintained, and in proper storage. Providing fuel vouchers to Scout Troop staffers that provide their own vehicles in transporting Scouts during an event. If not a chartered transport vehicle can be utilized when needed. For Scouts that qualify based on need to provide assistance in procuring New Uniforms and other Scout member incidentals.

Such a Scout Troop philanthropic fund can also expose the Scouts to local and regional cultural activities beyond that of a camping trip. Such as a local or regional area: Museums, Theater Plays, Musical Concerts, Sporting Events, etc... Patron(s) with a guest can also be invited to tag along such cultural events with a Scout Troop. To see how their donations are making a difference in the lives of the youth. Would be Patron(s) would be solicited by a local "Community Foundation" program if not some other local fund raising "Adopt A Scout Troop Program" area events.

This concept would go a long way to ensure that our youth have stable role models in the various Scout programs already in place across America. Including that such Troops are properly funded and maintained with dedicated staff members.

Games Industry Concept: Virtual Game Publisher Conventions

Hello All,

This conceptual entry for the games industry is one I've had in my collection of notebooks. Many of us know about some game publishers throwing a convention each year for their customer base. One that comes directly to mind is "Sony Online Entertainment", which this has been going on for nearly a decade. In which case I'll use them as an obvious example as I explain how my concept will work out.

For those not aware what a game publisher annual convention entails for its customer base. Well there are various activities that are held. For example the most notable at least to me are the costume contents. That are contests held for the most note worthy costumes from one of the game worlds that players enjoy. Besides that there are game developer "meet and greets" regarding existing or new games in development from that particular game publisher. There may be some panel talks or workshops held about such and such a game world, particularly an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online). There are most famously beautiful models dressed up for certain games being marketed at the time. Where game booths are concerned that showcase playable demo's for a future new game title or expansion to an existing game. And, lastly goodies or what is termed as "Swag", which is merchandising items handed out freely at the game booths.

To be honest I've never had the pleasure to attend such a gamers convention. So if i missed out an obvious show room floor activity you the reader will know why. The reason why I've never attended such a much lauded event is basically due to financial cost. It's not in my personal budget, which may be the majority reason why many gamers only read (watch videos) about such events and not attend them personally.

My concept would change all that by giving game publishers a bridge to reach their customer base in the virtual space. Hopefully as the real world gamer convention is being held by the game publisher at a bricks & mortar locale. In Sony's case it's usually in California near their San Diego headquarters or in Nevada typically Las Vegas.

Let's take three of SOE's MMORPG game worlds as part of this example. One being fantasy in "Everquest 2", one being sci-fi "Star Wars Galaxies", and one being for the youth / children demographic of "Free Realms". This is basically the 3 basic food groups of the MMO gamer out in the world to date.

Now picture in the fantasy, sci-fi, and youth MMORPG that SOE creates in my example a exhibition game zone. That will be themed each year differently consisting for a newly created free content to the game. Such as a village for "Everquest 2 & Free Realms" and a city in "Star Wars Galaxies". For players of all levels to mingle in the shops selling exclusive in-game items for that years convention. Of course a series of story plots following that years theme to the convention will be devised for a set of quests. Next all game worlds will have low to mid player level dungeons developed that tie into the starting village / city scape's or known as the exhibition zone. There will be of course a high level player raid instances developed for all other players in "Everquest 2" or "Star Wars Galaxies".

One additional item these exhibition zones will be like a booster (action) pack using SOE's terminology. Where like a "Worlds Fair" in reality it is left behind for the local populace to enjoy for years to come. In this case it would become part of the MMO game world space delivered as free content. Courtesy of that years particularly themed game publisher convention as a thank you to its online MMO customer base.

If the game publisher wishes to get real fancy in the village / city zone. Develop a media player window set off in a virtual theater location. Where either a live streamed feed via web cams to the convention show room floor is displayed. For gamers that wish to hang out in such a spot in order to tie together the real and virtual conventions as a concept. Where such a media player can also stream "Live or Recorded" events from game developers for whatever is held that day in an activity schedule. So the online gamer in those exhibition zones can feel a part of the game publisher convention but by being logged into their MMO of choice.


Now if a game publisher wants to showcase games that are not of a MMO genre. These additional details would allow an online web gamers convention to be showcased. To its customers at large who are not subscribers to an existing MMO or to the game media press not able to attend personally.

Consider a portal website that is developed just for that years convention. Showcasing various sections that are invite only such as to the game press in attendance. Or to customers / gamers at large that are curious enough to watch what is ongoing at the real convention room floor.

Events showcased through such a web portal can be similar to what may occur as an E3 trade show convention. But instead of getting it second hand from a plethora of the media press. The game publisher can structure it in such a way that you only see what the game publisher wants you to see. For example, any game developer panel discussions, video game trailers for new or existing games, exclusive Q&A game developer chats just for the web portal audience (usually held right after the scheduled convention floor presentation and Q&A), and lastly a game demo that is playable via a Cloud Computing" service. This last one will take more finesse to explain, picture a service like "Onlive" that is subcontracted by Sony. To tie in a playable game demo that is typically only shown as a convention game booth. But thanks to the wonder of "cloud computing" those at the web portal can play a game demo of a: Sony PlayStation 3, PSP portal game, or just some other PC game title. Web portal users can either plug in a USB game pad controller on their computer systems or use an existing PC keyboard and mouse set-up to play the game demo.

Numerous marketing promotions abound for the game publisher to offer via the MMO exhibition zones or through the online web portal. For instance a yearly sweepstakes can be held for its own customers that attend the virtual game convention. Where the prize is an all expense 3 day 2 night trip to next years onsite game convention being held. Via the web portal to the convention there can be exclusive beta codes handed out to the game press or its registered customers to the web portal for a new game title. Secondary contents held in both the exhibition zones of an MMO or the web portal for merchandising swag. (T-Shirts, Hoodies, Mugs, Hats, Posters, Free Select Game Titles, etc...)

All of this is Doable Today as a concept. It just takes the ingenuity of a game publisher to be invested in such a pursuit. For the game publisher its a "No Brainer" outlet to reach their customer base via a online virtual space. This novel concept would allow game publishers that have no such annual convention in real life. To hold one each year just in a virtual online space. And, for those that do like SOE to augment they're existing game convention with this "Tie In" virtual event each year.

The customers win with free content, and exposure to game titles that will exist or currently do in the MMO space. And certainly game publishers will by promoting their game title products in a unique outlet that can be celebrated each year exclusively.

Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

I welcome you to another iteration of the "Jewels of Truth" series for this month of October. This entry the topics will be on: Mentors, Hope, and Peace.

For those preparing here in the States for their "Halloween" festivities. May you to do safely and especially have a ghoulish good time.


911) Not all teachers are mentors. Mentors are teachers that excel by going the extra mile with their pupil. That focus not on there weaknesses or their faults. But surmount them by looking beyond to the whole individual. Where the pupil will eventually rise to the occasion and become a sublime teacher of his own to the mentor.

Teaching not the lesson plans, but teaching the mentor who they are as a person. Mentors seek to bring balance within the environment of their knowledge base they are instilling into the student. Mentors teach by example and practice in innovative ways that address the core needs of their students. A good student must be receptive and of a reasonable temperament to be allowed to be guided in many different types of instructions.

Teachers only teach the study material at hand making sure of student comprehension. Mentors truly outshine such basic tenets of learning. Mentors get to remold their pupils by an honorable craft that yields hopefully a better individual for society as a whole. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

912) What is Hope?

Hope is based on truth, faith, and love for a better event or circumstance to appear. It is based on a truth for the sake of a purity of a true expression in time. It is based on faith so as to have a positive expectation in one's growth. So as to stir within a sacred intention by an outlook that will nourish the soul and not discourage it. It is based on an unconditional Love for the beauty of such an inspired moment that can only come forth by the "Will of God(dess)".

What to "Hope" for is up to the individual in need. However make sure that your hope is on a true foundation based on a faith in God(dess). Not a hope that is based on vanity nor ego, which will only lead your expectations astray. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

913) Only those that make "Peace" shall have peace of mind. For in the creating of peace there is a solace of the heart and mind that surrenders logic for calm. A calm that only those who know how to be still within their mind can be open to many wondrous things. Peace for its own sake is empty. Peace when it is shared is truly lasting and harmonious. Surrender your havoc and know the healing fortitude that a gentle peace can only offer through unconditional love. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Truth has beauty, power and necessity. ---Sylvia Ashton-Warner.

There is no surprise more magical than the surprise of being loved. ---Charles Morgan.

Instead of looking for love, give it; constantly renew it in yourself and you will always feel its presence within you. It will always be there smiling at you, gazing on you kindly. ---Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov.

Automobile Concept: Replica Vehicles With A Modern Twist

Hello All,

My concept of a replica vehicle isn't one of those that are authentic down to the engine block. Or a car reproduction kit that can be assembled on your own. Its something more so that a present day auto maker could accommodate into its own assembly line of today.

Picture your favorite vintage or collectible car model (Mine is the Jaguar E-Type) that is reproduced in its exterior body and interior decor only. So consider a modern replica of a classic vehicle done by Jaguar of "TaTa Motors". (The current owners of the Jaguar brand) Let's say its a "Jaguar E-Type" not redesigned like the "Volkswagen, Beetle" model or the "Ford, Thunderbird". But a true replica in the word of its exterior body of the vehicle and an interior decor that mimics the classic design. However the chassis or the under carriage of the vehicle consists of all the modern components that are expected today. Be it: Hybrid Engine, Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), a modern Power Train, Multi-Point Fuel Injection, Variable transmission, etc...

The interior of this modern replica "Jaguar E-Type" will follow the classical color interiors with leather seating. However modern amenities such as: GPS, CD Player with MP3 portable jack, Front & Side Curtain Passenger Air Bags, Auto Dimming Lights, Electronic Compass on a Rear View Mirror, Key Less Entry, Wireless Blue Tooth connectivity, etc...

If "TaTa Motors" offered this as a nostalgia to its luxury vehicle customers. I'm sure other luxury auto makers would follow suit be it: BMW, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Alfa Romero, Porsche, Ferrari, Mercedes Benz, etc... Just consider seeing Vintage and Collectible vehicles with a modern replica twist as stated above on today's roads.

These Modern Replica's won't just be for automobile collectors like "Jay Leno". But, accessible to luxury vehicle consumers at comparable prices to a present day BMW or Mercedes Benz car model. Just Imagine the resurgence of vehicle enthusiasts with a new outlook on historic car designs. That have been relegated to today's museums come alive once more on our roadways.

Jewels of Truth Statements & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

I hope the weather in your part of the world is finding you well. Here in south west Florida (Gulf of Mexico coastline) its balmy with the summer heat and late afternoon showers. With a touch of lighting storms, which Florida is infamous for being the most dangerous spot for thunder strikes in the world.

This week I'll be sharing another trio of "Jewels of Truth" on the topics of: Clothing, Being, and Goodness. May you find them thought provoking if not comforting to a degree.

Without a further adieu:

908) Clothing of all sorts and colors be they for: causal wear, work uniforms, or formal wear are often a facsimile of the auric hues of our very soul. Those who enjoy wearing and designing clothing are remembering on a soul level. The wondrous rays of colors all our spirits enjoyed displaying in creation and in heaven itself. The multifaceted shapes and patterns of clothing mimic our souls tendency to communicate via patterns of light and colors. Like many wondrous things in creation, clothing can be a beautiful art form be it in "Au Couture" or in normal daily wear. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

909) Why are we born into a seemingly world of chaos and disorder?

The answer can be as simple and complicated as you wish. We came back as incarnated souls so as to evolve in singular and plural Spirit of God(dess) as his / her entity in this version of manifested creation. Through self-awareness we will grow as souls and relearn how to Love all Life unconditionally. Not as its master, but as its partner and friend. We can not subjugate others and not lose something Holy in the transaction. We who are reawakened by grace can choose to be better for the Holy union of God(dess) within our being. All others will need to wait a while longer in this eternal life, if they ever choose to mature and live a more wholesome lifestyle guided by the Holy Spirit within us all. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

910) All agents of benevolence act as emissaries for the one we call God the majestic. Acts of grace no matter the scale or scope are not forgotten in regards to the service rendered as a servant or worker of the light. For goodness to be given and received there first must be a sacred intent to be committed in action and thought. Everything else becomes secondary making the good that is brought forth in act and gesture. Having a relationship in terms to knowing what goodness and kindness are in service. Is essential in developing one's being and moral character akin to evolution of the soul. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Acquire inner peace and a multitude will find their salvation near you. ---Catherine de Hueck Doherty.

Life is given to us, we earn it by giving it. ---Rabindranath Tagore.

For it is only in (love) that one becomes, in materiality, aware of the closeness of relationship to the Creative Forces or God. ---Edgar Cayce Reading 1703-3.

Remembering "Martin Luther King, Jr.'s" Beloved Community

Hello All,

Today more than ever during this period of hostility in our own personal world. If not the greater world at large be it in our Nation and beyond. Makes this philosophy proposed by "Martin Luther King,Jr." harder to pursue and for some is foolish thinking. But as the good reverend would call it the "Beloved Community". In my thoughts I consider this man who has become more Legend in reverence. A Biblical Prophet for our times, albeit an unrecognized one during this age. He wouldn't be the first, nor the last.

During a sermon delivered at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, In Montgomery, Alabama, on November 17, 1957. He said in this excerpt:

"You just keep loving people and keep loving them, even though they're mistreating you. Here's the person who is a neighbor, and this person is doing something wrong to you and all of that. Just keep being friendly to that person. Keep loving them. Don't do anything to embarrass them. Just keep loving them, and they can't stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with bitterness because they're mad because you love them like that. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they'll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That's love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There's something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies."

If you've ever wondered why it says to "Love Your Enemies" in the New Testament. There it is explained by the good reverend who was also a student of "Mahatma Gandhi" own philosophy of non violence.
This non-violence isn't wishy washy, there's power and grace in it for its practitioners.

Its up to all of us to choose a better and smarter way to achieve Peace. Not a peace that has no backbone, but a peace that is firmly rooted in each others better half.

Communication Console Concept: Hospital Guest To Patient Chat System

Hello All,

It seems for the most part hospital visitations by guests be it family or friends. Is limited to mid 20th century technological restrictions of the land line telephone call. (via a switchboard operator) Or the very traditional in-person hospital visit by a guest.

My concept blows past this traditional model of hospital guest visitations and ushers it into the early 21st century. Picture a communications console not to dissimilar from a laptop computer on a swivel arm attached to a hospital bed. It has a chief monitor, keyboard, microphone, one of several web cams in the room, and speakers. The communication console will also have "Voice Recognition Software" so a patient can go hands free be it in typing or interfacing with the console.

Every hospital guest will need to register themselves with the hospital website. Where they'll be authenticated by registering their Drivers License or State Picture ID card. Since patient security (privacy) is of utmost sensitivity. Besides to avoid every stranger to have access to a patients rooms they shouldn't be communicating with initially. The guest once authenticated will be given an access ID login and password. Where they'll encounter a social networking page provided by the hospital for the patient. Similar to "Facebook" in format with a: Wall for written messages, IRC (Instant Relay Chat) styled chat room, an incorporated secure Twitter page for health updates on the patient, a contact listing of registered guests, a subsequent contact list of on-duty nurses and doctors that are willing to take questions on the patients status, and other novelty applications. (like graphic icons of virtual flowers, etc...) Most importantly there will be a "Web Cam Chat Room" for either one one one video chats. Or multiple guests conversing at a time chatting with the patient.

The hospital can provide a default patient profile setting for their social networking page on the communication console. Which a tech savvy patient can customize to their preferences. The security settings to a patients profile can toggle "on or off" if video chats with audio dialogue is recorded or not. If text chat log is recorded or not, etc... However if a registered guest logging into the communication console of a patient is verbally abusive with the patient of hospital staff. The hospital security staff can override the patient profile setting to record all content. In order to provide evidence of an abusive registered guest from having very limited access to the patient or none at all. The communication console will also provide to the hospital staff with sufficient clearance to view an activity log. The activity log can be in text or a video / audio log that can be scanned to view any signs to a patients health.

The Communication Console like I stated earlier can have more than one situated web camera in the hospital room. In order for the guest to view the patient from multiple angles in the hospital room if the patient is asleep. If a patient is sleeping the Nurse can input an access code to mute all verbal contact with the patient during their rest. The communication console can also have a LED bulb that goes green to red. Green is when a virtual presence has connected and is interacting with the patient. Red is when there are no registered guests on the communication console. If a patient chooses to record any video, audio, or text chats on their profile settings. They can be handed over as a private secure download at their leisure upon their release from the hospital. As a keepsake for themselves or to be shared with close relatives at their discretion.

The 1st generation of these communication consoles can be rolled out to private hospital rooms. As an additional layer of a hospital amenity for the patient to utilize during their stay. The communication console will no doubt revolutionize hospital patient to guest visitations. Allowing relatives & close friends to visit a loved one from across the country or around the globe if need be.

Games Industry Concept: Game Achievements Rewarded With Retailer Incentives

Hello All,

For years now we as gamers with electronic games have reached achievement after achievement within a game title. Where by these milestones only served us in gaining additional ranks, in-game equipment, and status. Now with this concept the model for game achievements will evolve for the better and have a greater meaning to us.

Picture it when you reach anything from a trivial to majestic in-game achievements you'll be rewarded in kind by a retailer. Anything from using your first weapon in a FPS game title that offers you a retailer discount or cash rebate on your purchases. Up to in finishing a single player RPG game title by being rewarded a retailer or VISA cash gift card.

That in a nutshell is this idea that steps us forward as gamers in positive experiences. With a dual meaning for our game play and shopping habits being rewarded with another layer of incentives.

What I'm about to explain below are the intricacies of how such a plan could be pulled off by a company, game league outfit, or game publisher. This is not however one of those gimmicky programs that a gamer deposits his or her own cash to compete to win.

First, I consider this concept an evolution from what game developers already do to a game title. In terms of achievements, be they in the form of: trophies, badges, pins, or insignias in regarding a players milestone in the game title itself. Next, this concept also builds on top of what game publisher Microsoft has done with "Xbox Live" and by offering Xbox point reward system. That can be used for various downloads of media purchases be it: indie game titles, Tv episodes ala iTunes, or other offerings.

My evolution of this concept builds on what game developers and what Microsoft utilizes with Xbox points in a point system. And takes it to the next level by tying gamer achievements in a game title(s) to retailer incentives under 4 Tiers of awards. Where each achievement that is recorded in a game triggers a point system not unlike XBox Live utilizes. But also via the tier system would unlock from least to greatest retailer incentives. Such as: discounts on selected retailers participating in this program, shopper cash rebates by % (low percents for lower achievements, higher for bigger milestones), merchandise coupons be they free items or discount, and Gift or Cash Cards of various denominations. To top it all off contests and sweepstakes that individual players or entire clans or guilds can participate in for a shared prize pool. Be it: a vacation trip to a gamer convention such as "Comic-Con or E3", electronics, computer hardware, cars, cash prizes up to the millions US dollars.

The 4 Tier system would go like this: Bronze Tier 1 offers retailer discounts, Silver Tier 2 offers cash rebates or merchandise coupons, Gold Tier 3 offers Cash or Gift cards, Platinum Tier 4 offers mid to high end prizes.

Participating Corporate Sponsors can be enrolled into this program and be charged a maintenance fee as one of the several revenue streams for this company. Besides any discounts, cash rebates, coupons, or prize items offered up to the program for participating retailers. That commissions can also be paid for member referrals for any of their bonafide tracked consumer purchases. Including advertising from the sponsors that display in this program. Or fee's collected from consumer survey panels for offering their surveys to a locked group of a demographic of gamer enthusiasts.

The reward point system that the users (gamers) accumulate can be redeemed for various prizes from a reward catalog. Similar as to how online consumer survey panels offer their members. There can also be an auction site to bid on prizes with their reward points that have been earned from in-game achievements. Free reward points promotions can be offered by retailers. Or additional points earned when a user redeems and uses their retailer discounts, cash rebates, merchandise coupons, etc...

Targeted corporate sponsors or retailers can be: Computer and software makers, beverage and snack makers, electronic stores, fast food restaurants, clothing stores, music & movie stores, or types of franchise locations, game outlet stores, Mass merchandisers like Walmart, or E-Commerce retailers like Amazon.

This is a concept waiting to be seized by a enterprising company that can see the potential to be had for gamers (consumers). Giving a whole new meaning to in-game achievements from the gamers and retailers perspective.

Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

It's that time of the month again where I share another trio of my wisdom statements. Do note I'm not a daily poster to my blog site. Where I typically make posts after the 15th of any given month. Consisting of one "Jewels of Truth" post and usually two additional "Concept" posts as the plan.

As a frequent reader you'll soon realize that 5 years of this blog being about. That includes 3 "Jewels of Truth" statements per month and the math indicates a whole lot of material to enjoy. On numerous topics just at your finger tips to the right under the index of blog links.

I just wanted to state this in case if someone was wondering.

Now without a further adieu thank you for visiting.


905) The characteristics of a soul allow it to be in numerous places at once. Such is the inheritance of being in the "Image of God". These places can be dimensions of being or of ethereal thought itself. Such numerous locales challenges us to grow in maturity as a spirit. Whereby we travel to spheres of living, be it in our dream states or during our waking hours.

All of life that is incarnated has a symbiosis with God in spirit. As extensions of his being whether we accept his Will or not. We travel as souls to where we belong akin to a reflection in a mirror. As life is called a school for the soul we sojourn whilst we're alive as people. To multiple places that cause us to grow and mature if we're paying attention in Spirit. This side of Creation is a nursery for souls of all phases of maturity. In Eternity where their is no mortal age in spirit because we are immortal souls. Again due to being in the "Image of God" we can only grow through a process of maturity, triggered by life events that provoke depth in us. Thus the "Fruit of Life" is encountered and shared as a gift with other kindred souls in this Life.

These places of the soul may consist of fields of pure energy where the formless is given shape by us. The limitations we encounter as humans have no power here. We are limitless without bounds, we are God in infinite slices becoming self-aware. We are the "I Am". ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

906) When a society is divided from itself by divisive ideologies, Lo and behold its own undoing is at hand. Inviting an atmosphere of polarizing behavior that becomes uncivilized and hateful. Where only the fundamentalist view is the true view by those who have become distorted in rhetoric. Such ideologies can be from the secular to the religious in nature and action. Causing only those with exclusive license to spew their bigotry without pause or concern for the public good. All others whom are not of this elitist thinking be they foreign or domestic in citizenry are to be mistrusted and alienated.

Such a path of beliefs will only spiral downwards away from peace and democracy. Leading to civil eruptions be they protests or riots that are violent and antagonistic. Instead of seeking the "Middle Way" of compromise and a compact of a declared public trust in good faith. We will experience ruin in all its chaotic forms until we want not to bleed and hate no more. Nurture instead a spirit of cooperation and compromise to be truly peace makers and not victims of discord. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

907) When an obstacle has been encountered in your life. Know that in each difficulty therein its core is a solution to be found and worked out. However many people give up by inaction only to be swallowed whole with despair. Others yet still choose to self-medicate through destructive addictions to numb their own pain. Where by they dig an even deeper hole of despair unwittingly. The best path of resolution is the constructive path that allows for inner personal work to be accomplished. No matter how slow the pace or if there are "fits and starts" to a solution. Patience, Hope, and Unconditional Love are the keys to unraveling any difficulty under the sun. Be it big in scope or trivial in consequence. All can become better with thoughtful persistence that allows one to overcome and not despair. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Every being is an abode of God, worthy of respect and reverence. ---Hindu Scripture.

Life is a very narrow bridge between two eternities. Be not afraid. ---Rabbi Nachman of Braslav.

Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do. ---Voltaire. (aka Francois-Marie Arouet) 1694-1778.

Software Concept: Software Suites For Smart Phones & Apple iPhones

Hello All,

How many software applications are there to date for the iPhone series of smart phones?

One estimate I heard some time ago was that their were 30,000 applications for the games section alone.

What if some forward thinking software developer for Apple or smart phones in general. Decides to bundle many of the higher quality applications into a Software Suite. Similar as to how Microsoft for years now has done the "Windows" series of operating system suites. But in this regard develop it for smart phones in particular be they for: Apple, Google, Microsoft, or some other player in the market place.

Think of it a software suite purchased offering better quality software applications. Than being nickle and dimed ala carte for each individual software application. Yes, there are a plethora of "Free" software apps out there for download. However I'm speaking more towards those that are being purchased at a few dollars or so without knowing if they're any good.

Software suites can consist of a generalized application package with a little bit of everything. Or be specialized that cater to select categories such as: Business, Entertainment, Games, News, Music, Photography, Sports, etc...

On top of all this a software developer can go one further and provide "Customer Service" for their suite packages. Where many of today's software applications are often more self-help by other users. Than anything resembling an air of dedicated customer support be it by: email, online chat, message board, or phone modes of outreach.

So instead of scouring through a sea of app's for a smart phone or Apple's iPhone series. Go instead with a software suite that is of a better quality with actual technical customer service offered.

"The Incarnations of Absolute (Unconditional) Love"

These are vessels of unconditional Love itself given to us as sacred gifts from God(dess). How we utilize them for the highest good of all is our gift back to God(dess).

For those who seek to see the presence of God. Don't look for the thunderbolt or the old man floating on a cloud or on a golden throne. When one of these incarnations of Love (God) are present, there is God(dess) in your midst.

Can you see now?

Or are you truly blind with a closed heart and mind?

---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

Hopefully your enjoying the summer season and if your down under in the oceanic region your winter period. Today's trio of "Jewels of Truth" statements will cover the topics of: wonder, forgiveness, and moderation. Besides a trio of quotations from other contributors that have sparked my earnest thoughts.

Enjoy and be well.


902) Where there is wonder there is the eye of a child filled with splendid notions. Wonder is for those who have curious hearts and a mind filled with awe. Wonder can reveal many beautiful things regarding a person, no matter their age in this life. From young to old, those who behold wonder in their hearts shall reveal for the rest of us the glories of creation. Be it the true to the fanciful that gives delight to those open enough to receive such joy. Where there is "Wonder" there is an abundant heart willingly to listen and share the beauties discovered all around him or her. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

903) Forgiveness is medicine for the heart of the giver and receiver. If there is no receiver to be had than the Holy Spirit of God shall stand in there place. To help comfort and aid the giver of forgiveness. Forgiveness is an elixir of life allowing: slurs, hates, and other maladies of the heart to be released. So as to re-nourish with love a person's spirit. Forgiveness brings harmony and balance as a form of spiritual atonement. It shall benefit more the giver of forgiveness than the receiver, for that is its intended purpose. So as to soothe a splintered ego. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

904) Moderation is the next best achievement in this life in regards to perfection. For mortals there is no true perfection, there may be a foolish attempt to attain perfection as a mortal carnal and spiritual being. But such a paradox forbids perfection to occur, such was the intended purpose of living in this realm of creation.

Moderation allows for all things excellent to be attainable. Attainable in such a way as to forge open the good or evil as it is intended. Moderation has both good (Light) and evil (Darkness) in such a realm of pluralistic duality. All paths that lead back to God must travel via moderation so as to pass through the eye of the needle. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


Any place is sacred ground, for it can become a place of encounter with the divine Presence. ---David Steindl-Rast. "A Listening Heart".

The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction. ---Rachel Carson.

What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner. ---Sidonie Gabrielle-Colette.

Banking Concept: Credit / Debit Card "Region Lock" Feature

Hello All,

I myself having been the victim of a stolen credit / debit card account number. Where a fraudulent transaction took place in London UK and I live here in the State of Florida. I know the headaches this can cause having to change my credit / debit card numbers. Besides the much needed "back and forth" correspondence with my bank.

Aside from my personal experiences the black market of stolen credit / debit card account details is probably worth billions of dollars world-wide. Where a soccer mom's credit card details are stolen and it ends up in Russia via a criminal syndicate.

My concept is to prevent this vicious cycle of credit / debit card account details theft through a security feature known as the "Region Lock". Whereby an account holder of a credit / debit card logs into their bank account online. Where they can select via a global map the: continent, regions, national province, or U.S. State where they're credit / debit card is authorized for use. The physical credit / debit card itself will not have any sort of acknowledgment that this security feature is in place.

So for example I would select my authorized "Region Lock" areas to be either the State of Florida. Or I could select regions of North America or parts of my State of Florida. Such as South West Florida where my home town is located in Sarasota and selecting South Florida. Due to vacation trips I take to visit family in Miami once a year.

If my credit / debit card becomes stolen through the loss of my account details. Where it ends up in Asia lets say Hong Kong and it gets used in a retail transaction. An unauthorized security flag will go up instantly where the merchant in Hong Kong and my local bank would be alerted that my account credit / debit card have become compromised.

Such a banking security feature for credit / debit cards may also devastate the resale black market abroad. Where thieves or criminal syndicates themselves will no longer make a dishonest profit at the expense of unsuspecting individuals. Where a banks fraud insurance policy in premiums may actually go down. Due to a lower incident rate of stolen credit / debit card numbers in covering fraudulent transactions.

Yes, the Region Lock security feature may be useless in terms to physical credit / cards that are stolen locally and used locally. However nowadays these are becoming the minority of credit / debit card thefts. Where the majority of fraudulent transactions are occurring abroad for stolen account details.

Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

900) What is the "human condition"?

It is none other but a lifetime of pain and joy. A living paradox that all life itself encounters no matter the centric view of a particular species. It is truly a universal condition no matter how divorced in emotion a sentient species is from its own psyche. A psyche can be whole or fragmented, whether engineered or natural in selection. It is nonetheless alive and dynamic as a living embodiment of its own ancestors. It is a universal creation in the eyes of God(dess). Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

901) For those who seek "Bliss" without being ignorant. The path is not an easy one, however it is achievable by the gentle hands of grace within your own soul. To achieve this bliss through awareness one must surrender all that is vain and worrisome. By surrendering your viewpoint of being right versus being good, will allow you the freedom to experience bliss with abundance.

Be centered within that which is true and purest. Where your best guide is that of total love for all that is sacred and divine. Be aware that this path will undo your human ego. By allowing a freedom where few can navigate without prejudice in their hearts. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


The grateful heart sits at a continuous feast. ---Anonymous.

You will have confidence, because there is hope; you will be protected and take your rest in safety. ---Job. 11:18

The personal life deeply lived always expands into truth beyond itself. ---Anais Nin.

By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection which is noblest; Second, by imitation which is easiest; and Third by experience which is the bittersweet. ---Confucius.

Where you stumble, there your treasure lies. ---Joseph Campbell.

Ad Concept: Courier Service Advertisement Campaign

Hello All,

A while ago I listened to an older "Stevie Wonder" song titled "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours". Which got me thinking, has there ever been an advertisement campaign using this song previously? If not, why hasn't the courier service providers be they: UPS (United Parcel Service), Fed Ex (Federal Express), DHL, or USPS (U.S. Postal Service) ever capitalized on this song for an advertisement campaign?

Allow me to place the lyrics of this entire song below for your viewing pleasure.

Stevie Wonder: Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours

Like a fool I went and stayed too long
Now I'm wondering if your love's still strong
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours

Then that time I went and said goodbye
Now I'm back and not ashamed to cry
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours

Here I am baby
Oh, you've got the future in your hand
(signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours)

Here I am baby,
Oh, you've got the future in your hand
(signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours)

I've done a lot of foolish things
That I really didn't mean
Hey, hey, yea, yea, didn't I, oh baby

Seen a lot of things in this old world
When I touched them they did nothing, girl
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours, oh I'm yours

Oo-wee babe you set my soul on fire
That's why I know you are my only desire
Oo baby, here I am, signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours

Here I am baby
Oh, you've got the future in your hand
(signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours)

Here I am baby,
Oh, you've got the future in your hand
(signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours)

I've done a lot of foolish things
That I really didn't mean
I could be a broken man but here I am

With your future, got your future babe (here I am baby)
Here I am baby (signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours)
Here I am baby, (here I am baby)
Here I am baby (signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours)
Here I am baby, (here I am baby)
Here I am baby (signed, sealed delivered, I'm yours)


Great music always add an additional dimension to any sort of visual medium. Be it for TV commercials or other content programming for television.

Let's hope ad agencies are paying attention on what could be for a courier service clientele.

Game Industry Commentary: Will DLC Spell The End For The Modder Community?

Hello All,

This question popped into my head will a game publishers exclusive DLC, be it paid or free with the purchase of a particular game title. Force an unhealthy competition between the modder community of say "Bad Company 2" a FPS title from Electronic Arts (EA)?

Right now gamers of the PC platform are waiting with baited breathe for each new DLC map pack. Never mind that EA / DICE is only releasing new game modes to the recent map packs of 2 & 3. This technically would cause friction in terms of effort and eyeballs with the modder community. To the remarks of EA / DICE that they won't release a mod editor to "Bad Company 2" (BC2). Because they are still learning and getting a handle on the game engine called "Frostbite" .

Is this subterfuge on the part of EA / DICE where all new content will only come from them in the form of DLC? (Downloadable Content) Or is this a stretch on my part where I'm just merely mistakened?

I was just using Electronic Arts as the most recent example of this potentially new trend. Where a game publishers DLC will clash with independent modders for just the love of the game. Yes, mod editor tools have extended the shelf life of many FPS multiplayer game titles. Besides RPG's like "Never Winter Nights" series to name one in that genre. But, now that DLC is coming into its own it will also extend the shelf life of a game for a game publisher. However it will generate additional income similar to micro-transactions for MMO F2P business model of games.

No doubt EA is the vanguard pushing hard on DLC for games like: Bad Company 2, Mass Effect 2, and Dragon Origins. Will EA through Bioware seek to insert the twin to DLC as in micro transactions in SW:TOR?

Time will tell especially as the game beta period gets closer.

How would modders feel to FPS or RPG games that DLC would rub them out of the picture?

Thank you for your remarks.

Criminal Law Concept: Protection Against Rabid Press & Paparazzi

Hello All,

This concept of mine will be very controversial due to the unrestrained News Media in our country. Where ownership of media outlets is by a handful of monopoly owners in America. What I am proposing is a standardized Rules of Engagement that the Press and Paparazzi must adhere to when pursuing the people of their next news / gossip scoop. Where this will be written into the penal code for law enforcement here in the States. (hopefully at a Federal level one day to come) The reason for such criminal legislation is readily apparent that the news media can not police their behavior or conduct. Much less the lunatic paparazzi that have gone as far as to aid in the death of a beloved Princess Diana. If the Press and Paparazzi wish to be treated as Predators of the public good than so shall it be.

I'll break down into 3 Stages of civilized conduct where the Press can get their story with prior consent. Besides beat back the throngs of unchecked paparazzi that can cause harm or destruction of property far too easily.

Beginning at Stage 3 and working my way backwards:

Stage 3:

The "Press & Paparazzi" will conduct their business in a modified version of a Restraining Order as a new subjected penal code category. Where upon a hybrid modification of harassment and/or stalker laws will apply to the fullest extent of the law. Where criminal penalties can be anything from a felony to a misdemeanor with additional imposed fines.

Those who have committed a suspected criminal act and are suspects (persons of interest) will be treated as presumed innocent until proven guilty. There are unfortunate a plethora of examples that the Press have marred criminal suspects that were later proven innocent. Where the court of public opinion has demonized such people where the damage to their reputation is despicable. Be it in televised talk programs that give more sensational opinion that critical thought as an example.

The "Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty" will be expanded from the court system to our Press. Where witnesses or suspects will not be tainted causing a high profile court hearing moved to a new venue.

Additional penalties could be:

1) Being charged with interfering in an ongoing criminal investigation that will include irresponsible members of the press or paparazzi.

2) Stalking or Harassment of witnesses or persons of interest.

3) An imposed monetary fine to the News Agency from a direct employee of the firm. If not a direct fine to a free agent news reporter or member of the paparazzi.

4) Confiscation of equipment be it: cameras, audio microphones, up to impounding of a news vehicle. Be it a satellite truck or to personal transportation of the press or paparazzi.

Any news making equipment that is confiscated must be stored in a appropriate storage facility that is both secure and if necessary temperature controlled. Upon release of the equipment a fee must be paid for the upkeep of the storage facility costs. Otherwise the property will be considered as forfeited and will be auctioned off by the State in order to generate revenue.

A Red Zone system will be devised around a protected person be it their residence or work place. Including a set distance of protection while in transit when in a personal vehicle. For any criminal case witness or person of interest (suspect) the Press or Paparazzi seek out to cover as news worthy. A modified version of sexual predator penal code will be utilized for the allowable set distance.

A Red Zone will be treated as a "No Go Zone" of enforceable protections. Akin to a perimeter that no trespassers could cross or the squatters of news vehicles and their respective news crews.

Stage 2:

Will apply to public figures be they celebrities or politicians up to diplomats. Where similar restrictions will apply under the Stage 3 provisions. Except that for politicians or elected / appointed public officials of the State. Will continue to be monitored by the Press when on State grounds. (IE Congress, Governors Mansion, Fund Raisers, Banquets, etc...)

In terms of Paparazzi that may utilize cheap tactics of colliding with a celebrities personal vehicle. In order to facilitate a impromptu photo opportunity of an angered celebrity or their personal staff. It will be considered a Hit & Run criminal penalty whether it was accidental or an overt act.

Additional protections for those under Stage 2 will be when in transit. Be it for work related or personal leisure, such as: roadways, marine vessels, or aircraft. Including personal accommodations on resort / hotel property, or guest private property grounds. For ground vehicle transportation a set distance must always be adhered to when tailing a celebrity occupied vehicle. When a celebrity is on a yacht up to a cruise ship that any non-staff personal accommodations must be situated at a set distance. Celebrities such as authors or others yet still conducting a work related workshop on a cruise ship. Will have amended restrictions in order to interact with others as a form of prior consent. Celebrities or Politicians utilizing public air liners will also have a set distance of protection during transit. From unwanted persons in order to maintain their privacy, staff of course is excluded from such interactions. During a stay at a hotel / resort property a red zone restriction will also be in place. Besides if a celebrity or politician is staying in a guest residence of a friend or relative.

The only exception is if a agreed to form of consent disclosure is utilized to gain an exclusive interview or photo shoot. Where any employee or sub-contracted workers (including other guests of the news staff) personal cell / smart phones will be switched off. Where undisclosed hidden cameras or audio microphones will be forbidden.

Stage 1:

Will be anyone else that the news media outlets or paparazzi wish to pursue under news coverage. Similar to Stages 2 & 3 in a "Red Zone" of a personal residence, workplace, or in a personal vehicle whilst in transit.

Exclusions: Such as the use of personal sport vehicles of: ATV / Quads, Snow Mobiles, Bicycles, Roller Blades / Skate Boards, Wheel Chairs (hand powered or electric) are fair game to the paparazzi or the news makers. As long as a person of interest (suspect), witness, celebrity, politician, diplomat, common person is not in their aforementioned "Red Zone".

The United States needs a uniform version of a standardized set of protections from unwanted intrusions from the Press or Paparazzi media outlets. Otherwise our civil liberties will continue to be diminished and humane treatment of others will continue to be in decline.

Jewels of Truth Quotations & Favorite Quotes of The Month

Hello All,

It's that time of the month again where during middle of the month I share another trio of original "Jewels of Truth" statements for the mind & soul.

Thank you for pondering them.


896) Our God is an absolute presence. So humanity may discover its own indwelling Divinity it has been blessed with by numerous faiths in our shared world. All such faiths based truly on an inclusive benevolence will lead back to the Holy Temple within your soul. Where God is awaiting us all continually throughout eternity with an unconditional abiding Love.

All faiths are relative in how they reach a state of being transcended from human form into the formless Spirit of God(dess) within all Life. Such an awareness will nourish all hearts and minds with a tranquility that surpasses the need for understanding why. It just is the Will of God. Be still and know this awareness of the Spirit of God(dess) within your being. And you to will find eternal life in abundance surrounding you constantly in both Divine and human form. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

897) All those that fight against something will only enhance it through resistance. Instead of fighting to prevail victorious one needs to step back away from the ego of perceived separation. To understand that to truly overcome a need one must either support or heal the opposite that is causing the initial conflict. If such a conflict is a circumstance than it is easier to transcend by supporting the competing factors that diminish the perceived wrong. However if a person(s) are the ones that are causing the havoc. One needs to find a compromise to mitigate the distress. If the other group or person is belligerent than abandon them to their own nonsense. And, do your best to resolve a situation without their input or involvement in the matter in question. This is the path to true resolution when dealing with competing factors. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.

898) Those that seek righteousness through the ego will only find hardship. But for those who seek unconditional love in a moderated fashion will find abundance in a myriad of outlets upon them. Being right is not always the best use of truth. When having to be right and thus making others wrong. Is a trick of the human ego in finding superiority, no matter if it is illusionary by disguise. Compassion is the root of all healing of any truthful or perceived wrongs. Since compassion is of love and love an extension of truth itself.

Being loving instead of being right all the time. Lends itself to peace, and an abundant peace without the need of logic nor reason. This is the core path of being a peace maker and by extension the essence of a benevolent diplomat. Whereby acting as an ambassador of the supreme truth of God(dess) within all of us who are created in his/her own Image. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


You will never be commonplace if you are vigilant in love. ---Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity.

It is a huge danger to pretend that awful things do not happen. But you need enough hope to keep going. I am trying to make hope. Flowers grow out of darkness. ---Corita Kent.

If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought. ---Peace Pilgrim.

Games Industry Prediction: China Overtakes West In AAA MMO Games In 5-10 Yrs.

Hello All,

For some my prediction may not be one at all due to the plethora of MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) game titles the Chinese are churning out each year. However in my opinion that's just an attempt to throw wet paper at the wall to see what sticks. From such a business strategy the Chinese will surely profit in 5 to 10 years time learning from the growing pains to follow. On how to: design, build, maintain, and hopefully prosper the MMO genre game market.

The past five to ten years the other Asian countries of Japan & South Korea will inadvertently open the door for the Chinese and Indian game developers. Allowing them to penetrate into the Western consumer pocketbooks. Notable success stories of Sony on the Japanese side if not other game companies such as Sega. Be it the video game console business or the MMO market with "Sony Online Entertainment". With South Korea's "NC Soft" in their line-up of MMO quality game titles.

Within the last five years or so Western game publishers have opened game studios be it in China or India respectively. Where the talent (labor) and costs of running a studio is cheap compared to the West. The quality of the staff is just as good if not superior in some respects. Consider the Chinese and Indian game studios are in the "training wheels period" learning what they can from their Western counter-parts. Expect all this to change within the next five years however as fledgling game developers start to launch in China & India.

One of the undercurrents I make such a prediction is the Chinese in particular will revolutionize group / population game dynamics and structures. The West has approached the player mentality of game design in a mindset of the rugged individualistic personal hero / heroine. The Chinese due to real factors of population densities in their country with a billion plus citizens. Will usher forth key group / niche game play for the masses in MMO game genre. The dynamics of such game design will be from the back end infrastructure down to how game play will effect groups of players in a structural form.

Already the Chinese game market has influenced the Western MMO market with the introduction of the F2P (Free to Play) business model. F2P in China was developed due to income restrictions and easy access to population density in the cities. The West's adoption hasn't been on the same grounds however as in the East. Here in North America it may have been because of the economic turmoil due to the "Great Recession". Although the transition has not been fully adopted offering a hold over voluntary game subscription business model. In order to garner access to better quality items and/or loot in game play. This is aside from the mirco-transaction item malls introduced as an e-commerce presence to the game in the F2P business model.

These 5 to 10 year range expect Chinese and Indian game developers to offer AAA MMO game titles to the West. The Indians will take they're cue from the Chinese in game design styles and methods in launching such enterprises. Such as the typical Chinese or Indian MMO game titles will be steeped in their own cultural mythology for themed game worlds. So expect High Fantasy themes as the easy bet until they mature in styles. Where they will offer other themes be it science-fiction or historical periods when they have planted their roots firmly into the Western game markets.
