Did I use to play in virtual worlds. Yes, I liked it so much in past experiences and had built 2 virtual communities in a sophisticated virtual world that presently does not exist anymore because I deleted it and decided to move. I have good personal reasons why I had to move my affections from virtual worlds in which I felt I was too much emotionally and spiritually attached.  I do have  a few  screen photo clips of the once existing virtual community based on heaven and my imagination . I had personally and graphically designed God Kiss Zone on in a internet virtual world names Kaneva. I do not have schooling on graphic design training or anything; I do have some basic technical support skills and a love for technology, computers, and some artistic abilities. Building this community was basicly easy with the tools that was given to me. The other community built was a unfinished work with no photos names “Prophets Manna Land” which was to be a place for studies, mystery, mazes, and puzzles. Building these communities  was very exciting  for me and let me express my inner artist and technical abilities which I felt was a talent. Along with building a virtual community I was at the same time able to interact with other characters  in a this real time chat world and even witness to them using visual youtube screens with me personally talking to them on a virtual television screen in the community and so they saw my real human face. But my virtual character being “Lady Lights” was a character that I enjoyed who represented a prophetess with white hair and sometimes purple hair that expressed to me the color of righteousness and royalty. I was also technically inclined to design my own virtual clothes as a virtual fashion designer and did very well. After testing several virtual worlds listed below I feel Kaneva is the best American virtual chat community online with excellent and graphic design and was very impressed and recommend to those fancy virtual interactive chat experiences. It was fairly easy to play. I do feel a bit sad that I deleted my communities and art work that took 1/2 year to create but I felt it was best for me at the time for I was completely addicted to building and playing to the extent I felt it was unhealthy for my present lifestyle. And this only because I desired to do nothing more then to stay in a virtual world for the rest of my life it seemed on the computer. I spend alot of time working in my virtual community “God Kiss Zone” and had wish that it was heaven. And knowing that it was my way of escaping from the real world for me because of the trials I was going through during the time was great and but I felt I had to release this activity. I do still remember how wonderfully fun it was. I  have only a few pictures of that special place with a few of the internet characters that I had also met there. Here is a few screen shots saved of the heavenly community in the slide show below this page. Often my character roamed around alone to explore other community artwork and often did not do much internet socializing with other characters unless sharing the gospel. Some but not much chatting was done only because I  liked to only creatively build and was consumed so much with my art work but there was always virtual characters friends lurking and visiting. God Kiss Zone had it’s grand opening year which was hosted and accompanied by another christian community that is very well established Christian Believers Fellowship Community. Several internet visitors arrived. I was mainly known as a priest and that is all to most people in Kaneva and was not bothered as much. I felt these memories was a secret but really warmed my heart during the time and I am glad to share it with you. This experience is a bit sensitive to me only because it was my art work that I loved, my place of escape from reality at that time, and also was my addiction at that time in which I was able to reliquish but only at the expense of deleting the entire community and art work. This work  personally and technically designed  took almost 1/2 year to build. But I hope you like the slide show below for  it for this is my memories of the artwork. Lady Lights is the one with the white hair and is also wearing a virtual dress in photos . During my experiences I was very serious about finding a virtual world to play in as recreation and searched ardously to find one because I simply knew that they existed. I  mainly wanted to find one to be creative in some way more than socially because I found that I was not really always a social person all the time. But these are the places that others liked to go to to socialize, meet with other male and female on the internet or play games. But for me, I only wanted to build and build and build… It was an addiction and obsession to build. I asked myself why am I building so much!? I was feeling like I was trying to get to heaven in my heart and that was very sad to my heart when I think about how much I wanted that and kept building. Other Virtual Worlds that I have tested an tried to experience but did not find as enjoyable was only because I liked to build. The building tools was easy for me and fun and is free in Kaveva but I paid sometimes on your hobby so I can build even better and better: List of other Virtual World that I have tried and tested but did not really find as fun. Second Life (Reported as the #1 Virtual World on the Internet), Active Worlds, There, Worlds, Sims, ..Most virtual worlds are for gaming, socializing, flirting, and acting. I found that those things I did not like or find entertaining. I was looking for the experience in hopes to express some kind of creativity and so building during the time was the only thing I liked in virtual worlds and that was very fun. Building and art was basically my  memories and experiences in Internet Virtual Worlds. Kaneva had a large group of spiritual christian 3D virtual communites that  evangelized the gospel of Jesus Christ fairly well even with revelation and that I really liked. There is much of the secular world as well in Kaneva and so is like most of the world real world, there is a little bit of everything. I felt this can be a great tool for communication in general as a more interactive chat environment online but is more creative and I was fairly suprised. May technology be used nevertheless for Christ Jesus every where.

Here are the snap shot photos remnant of what was left and saved from my virtual world building experience and art. I hope you like it. Will I ever go back to building in virtual world in Kaneva. The answer is no. Why?  I feel it is best for me for me to pursue other ways to be creative and virtual worlds are mainly for socializing and I simply do not want to do that in internet virtual worlds because I was to emotionally and spiritually attached to this and I did not like that. It was becoming a unhealthy thing for me and I really think that is all I need to say. But I encourage Christians all over to pursue a technology based vision for their churches and to be creative to pursue those who need to hear the good news of the Gospel of the great Faith of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. God bless you on the internet. You will never know what soul you may find here on the world wide web. God bless you.  – Val
