Chiren Boumaaza, better known as Athene, is an Internet sensation with over 240 million views on his YouTube channel and professional gaming experience. His resume includes being a record holder in World of Warcraft and online poker, and the main character in the popular video series on Youtube.
Athene’s notoriety is from crashing gaming servers with the support of his loyal followers who are enthused by the controversy and mischief. In the past year, Athene had been less active until he announced that he was researching quantum mechanics, general and special relativity, and neuroscience.
In order to highlight this work, Athene and his team have released a documentary titled “Athene Unplugged” which showcases his journey from celebrity gamer to scientist. Through interviews with notable scientists, gamers, friends, family members, fans, and even enemies the film sheds light on Chirens ideology for fame versus higher purpose in life.
The documentary takes viewers through Athene’s transformation from being an outgoing public figure to one consumed with philosophical theories concerning reality as well as personal relationships. It serves as a reminder of how our choices can shape our lives and ultimately inspire us to challenge ourselves.
We encourage everyone to watch “Athene Unplugged” in order to understand both Athene’s accomplishments so far as well as his future goals. The documentary is available now on streaming platforms such as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video for your viewing pleasure!
