MUSIC and GAMES: Computer Music and History of Video Games
The answer to generating popular genealogy and family history interest
by teenagers, youth and active adults, appears in the creation of interesting
computer games -- technology that can be used by individuals, as well as for
group interaction in shopping mall arcades, or other religious and educational
meeting locations.  Participation will occur, by the adoption of genealogy and
family history learning tools that conform actual research methodology with
popular culture: the instant personal gratification obtained in game action
time frame transitions.  Individuals or groups thus achieve positive goal
orientations, through interactive associations with the great lives of men
and women, adults and children, in past and present history; or, in the
projected future lives of civilizations yet born and unknown. From
Civilization, to computer game
Civilization, to the restoration
and re-creation of valid
Ancient & Modern Genealogies.
The benefit of this open interaction with other people,
is the restoration of bonding between common
ancestors and other researchers in -- real life;
experiencing in
Virtual Reality /Second Life®,
how different personalities react under
similar conditions.
