Possible connection to John Donne poem and project-wt.com. Thoughts?


#1

The Roomie and I were doing some brainstorming and came across a potentially interesting connection. He noticed that on project-wt.com the only labels are islands. This made me say almost as a joke, “No man is an iland”. Then I googled that poem from John Donne and found it to be fascinating. Don’t know if there’s anything deeper, but seems like there could be a connection. Also think about the last line of the poem. What are they making us take pictures of? If only it were Meditation XVI, I’d be convinced there’s a connection:

No man is an Iland, intire of itselfe; every man
is a peece of the Continent, a part of the maine;
if a Clod bee washed away by the Sea, Europe
is the lesse, as well as if a Promontorie were, as
well as if a Manor of thy friends or of thine
owne were; any mans death diminishes me,
because I am involved in Mankinde;
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

MEDITATION XVII
Devotions upon Emergent Occasions
John Donne

I made the same joke when the map first popped up and I noticed straight away (cos im on an island) that islands were only named, looked up the poem and everything but nobody in discord chats paid much notice :slight_smile:

They’re launching a sequel that’s also a theme park? Bold move Hello Games, very bold.
