Life is the best game ever invented. Nothing else
has so much at stake. The rules change constantly;
one of the goals is to discover the rules, another
goal is to create new rules. There are games within
games within games, too many to play in all. Everyone
is a contender in some games, and merely a pawn in
others. One goal is to discover the games in play,
another goal is to choose which to play.

Unfortunately most people seem to be oblivious to
the game(s) of life. If you ignore or opt out of
a particular game you tend to end up as a pawn or worse.
For better or worse there is only one way to opt out
of them all...


Ah, David. You are a brilliant guy.

Teach me more.
