I was thinking the power of minecraft is that at a base level it's the birth of man. You start with nothing just simple tools you survive yet in total safety. And you dream about becoming emporer one day. That is effectively the base goal of life. Uncluttered by any complex UI and we dream of ultimately what the world could potentially become. Maybe it is the first true escape into another world from this one. I think this could be the Pong of alternative reality. Life at its base level is incredibly simple. Ripper. Ps....I haven't been smoking.
