Life-Metaphers: Tetris


There are many expressions of the unconscious.

In Tetris when you clear a line it means that you have integrated an insight, learnt it. There are times when you may feel stuck and maybe don’t know that you have a major chain-reaction waiting, ready to clear tons of stuff out.

It is important to integrate but this game shows that life doesn’t always bring you something that fits 😉 It is a metapher for life. So overintegrating may not work out for life.

In this game you also got to intuitively focus on what comes next while you are “dealing” with the part that comes down.

Then there is the theme of trust. You gotto trust that the part you really need comes.But if you focus too much you neglect other things. So the lesson here is not to zoom too close all the time although this is something different than being in the moment. I feel though feeling the most alive is a mix of being in the now while having something from your past going and also being connected to the future with most of the focus being on the now. The past and future themes are more like something you evoke as a sensation and mix into the now, I guess that’s how we do it.

The theme of letting go is also in it. And come back on it later as is the theme of faith and hope.

Now I don’t like to look at life as a game, yet sometimes it helps,  but rather games as life. Surely there is more about life than learning and integrating but that’s not how I mean it cause that always happens anyway while you just live it.
