    Upon looking at the title of this game….”Disney Magical World”, it reminded me of the universe and creation and how scientist Stephen Hawkings views creationism and our universe. Was it science? Magic? God?

    His quote once:

    “‘I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first.
    I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail.
    There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.’

    When people ask me if a god created the universe, I tell them that the question itself makes no sense. Time didn’t exist before the big bang, so there is no time for god to make the universe in. It’s like asking directions to the edge of the earth; The Earth is a sphere; it doesn’t have an edge; so looking for it is a futile exercise.

    We are each free to believe what we want, and it’s my view that the simplest explanation is; there is no god. No one created our universe,and no one directs our fate.
    This leads me to a profound realization; There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that I am extremely grateful.” – Stephen Hawking

    I’m not even sure that makes sense. Something must have existed to cause the big bang. It didn’t just happen randomly without cause.

    You know when you go faster than the speed of sound you create a sonic boom which is the sound associated with the shock waves created by an object traveling through the air faster than the speed of sound? Sonic booms generate enormous amounts of sound energy, sounding much like an explosion.

    So it’s possible that something was traveling faster than the speed of light which created a ‘light boom’ if you will, causing the big bang, creating the ever expanding universe.

    Is the universe expanding through that explosion from the Big Bang? Or is the opposite and the universe is actually collapsing upon itself through the effects of dark matter and space time gravity? Like a giant star that reached the event horizon and thus imploded creating a universal black hole?

    But what was traveling that fast if that was possible? Was the giant star emassing so much cosmic energy at a rate of speed fast than the light it created that it literally imploded (or exploded) onto itself? There had to have a dimension before it and something to have created it.

    How do we even know, how can we even fathom either or (existence of God or not)? How do we know there is only one dimension and only the rules of the periodical table of elements apply?

    How can we establish time as an absolute through all or any of these dimensions? How do we even know God is a slave to time and the rules of this existence as we and the universe are? How can he be if he created it?

    It’d be like saying we are slaves to our computer programs we created and live inside them; the virtual worlds we created. But that would be nonsense. We exist on a totally different plane of existence than the computer ‘world’.

    Would a computer program ever fathom to one day question it’s existence and what’s beyond it’s realm? Would the notion of time within a sentient computer program work the same as ours? Who knows.

    Thats the closest similarity we have know to ‘creating worlds’ I guess…
    Maybe our world is one giant ‘organic computer’? Would you step inside your own computer program you created? The question doesnt even make sense now does it? How could you? So why would or could ‘God’ step inside ours if this is the case?

    Can we physically step inside the Magical World of Disney game? No, but we can emulate that existence through the avatars that we create. Systematically, the Disney characters that are within the game, that have a preordained programmed path, can never know that the avatar that they are interacting with, is none other than a puppet being controlled by a superior being outside the realm of their existence on a completely different dimension.
    Are there different dimensions? Parallel universes split off from the effects of the big bang? Is Disney Magical World a metaphor of these parallel universes? 500,000 shipments of Disney Magical World…..500,000 parallel universes….
    Such is life in a parallel comparison….

    In any case, what I take from the quote is to live life to your fullest while you can and not be preoccupied with what happens after it, or else life will slip you by. Don’t waste it. Before the 3DS battery dies….

    I think these are the lessons you learn when playing Disney Magical World..
