In Chinese philosophy, “yin and yang” (dark-bright, negative-positive) describes how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another.
While pinball and meditation may appear to be completely unrelated; combining the concepts of meditation, or “being in the zone”... and game play, is not uncommon.
Sports legends like Yogi Berra, Bill Russell, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan have all spoken of “being in the zone.” And, while pinball is not a traditional game of sport, it is most definitely a game. There is absolutely a competition going on; not only with other players, but primarily with your "self" against the machine.
This "self" is what you will learn how to "switch off" to find peace. This a wonderful skill to possess, because the chaos happening beneath the glass of a pinball machine is not unlike the crazy daily routines of our busy lives. Learning how to better deal with the fast moving parts of both is a huge benefit you will learn at Now Here Pinball.
