It's quite literal.

In this program you can be anything from a tiny speck of dirt to a massive black hole in space and everything in between while you explore the randomly generated terrain while exploring your own mind listening to a seminar by philosopher Alan Watts.

Everything is connected. You are everything. This is enforced by finding galaxies if you shrink far enough into a giraffe - and if you ascend past the universe you find might yourself to be a molecule of a plant. Yep. It's weird.

Yes, creatures naturally face plant as a form of travel.

To call it a game is a bit generous though since there is no objective. It doesn't matter where you go. What you do. It's so laid back and tripping ballsy that you can just let it auto-play with itself... if you like to watch. You can even just do that on Youtube.

The seminar is interesting, but the game - not so much. I give it 1 out of 5 wiggly nouns. As Alan Watts says "When we play a game, and the outcome of the game becomes certain - we cancel the game immediately". My recommendation? Leave that youtube link running in the back ground to listen to while doing something else.

Insight: Don't play it.
