HEXAGON LOGO OR "TEMPLATE" OF NEW GOOGLE AUGMENTED REALITY GAME INGRESS
February 26, 2013
Resistance members who have been around for awhile can recall we have been discussing the Astral Quest platform now in Beta for at least 2 years which is evident by the registration of our domains. Although somewhat late I have received notification from a fellow Resistance member that Google via Niantic Labs has launched Ingress on December 2, 2012 for the Android Platform. The word "Ingress" is defined as 1. (astronomy) the disappearance of a celestial body prior to an eclipse 2. the act of entering or going within. Sound like innerstanding to you or "just a speculation"?
With all of the internet data at their fingertips it is no wonder if Google is skimming the cream of the hottest ideas on the web and then attempting to develop them ahead of schedule. Ingress features 2 sides, Enlightened and Resistance. Looks like we made both sides on this one lol. There is talk of Resonators, Leveling Up, and Portals as this new augmented reality platform struggles to find its way and concept. Here is a quote from their Ingress Wikipedia entry "The top-level goal of the game is for one’s faction to control large numbers of “Mind Units”, the estimated number of humans within the regions of territory controlled by the faction."
Its also very clear that the app lacks a true storyline and retaining concept beyond augmented "enhanced" reality and can only bring more recognition to The Official Resistance website as we already accepted a member today who listed "Ingress" as their method of finding out about us. Either its backfiring on Google or all apart of the design anyway, we will have to see.
Lastly I would also like to comment on Augmented Reality and how it is being used as it raises some alarms in the area of eidolons or thought forms concentrations in many areas in the future. For those who know nothing about it I will explain as simple as possible one of the most common uses.
If you happen to be in an area that someone has created an "augmented reality scene" you can look look through any device that supports that augmented reality and you will see the scene through that device. An example is lets say I'm at a table in a park enjoying a meal with friends and I decide to record it and put it in to a platform like Googles new Glass. When another person comes to that area on a later date they will see nothing, but if they hold up their Augmented Reality device to that area they will see me there with friends.
This is being pushed because it has many applications ranging from getting directions when lost all the way to marking areas with certain symbols and clues to notify others who know how to follow those clues. On a spiritual level we have already discovered that in areas especially those that are haunted people see scenes of what took place and characters involved even if they have been long gone from the physical plane. It was later discovered this occurs due to concentrated thought and multiple mind links in real time remembering that occurance. It makes us ask the question will augmented reality populate the invisible world with new thought forms?
Still don't get augmented reality? Check out this video, talk about a Technology addiction and dependency coming on.
