The Game of Life – Introduction

game of life intro

Is life a game?

From Wikipedia: “A game is a structured activity, usually undertaken for enjoyment and sometimes also used as an educational tool. Games are generally distinct from work…and from art…However, the distinction is not clear-cut, and many games are also considered to be work or art….”

I’ll be posting three more articles in this series:

Part One—the Rules of the Game of Life

Part Two—the Playing of the Game of Life

Part Three—the Rewards of the Game of Life

Should take me about two days per article since I’ll be playing doing research with a simulation game called Civilization IV as I write the series.

The connections among Life, Games, and Spirituality will unfold as we go along………

Spiritual Quotes:

“You are the game that death stalketh; stand and he seizeth you, fly and he followeth.”

“The stalwart is he who overcometh himself.”
Marzieh Gail, From the Sayings of ‘Ali, Dawn Over Mount Hira, p. 14

  1. Much work,and research as well the many hours of time devoted to you’re great work and post’s Alex.Skill is successfully walking a tightrope over Niagara Falls,intelligence is not trying.And I’m thinking that Strong minds need no bailouts.

  2. I once heard a great speaker talk about how the metaphors we use for life dictate how we see it.

    This is one of those powerful metaphors in how some people may see life.

    There is no right or wrong one to use – just as long as it serves the one using it.

  3. Evita,

    Interesting perceptions!

    I’m glad I had the Game Metaphor brought to my attention…

    Hope you’ll read the next three posts and bring your comments here!
