"'We play the game move by move, and never see far ahead - the game of empire, of life, whatever you want to call it - and what the score will be when all the pieces at last go back into the box, who knows?'"
-Dominic Flandry on the last page of The Game Of Empire.
That life is a divine game is an idea in Indian philosophy. Who knows but also who cares? We will be dead. I do not buy the Indian ideas of souls and reincarnation.
When the final whistle blows, the play stops and the score is fixed. This is a good analogy for life, the difference being that we know the score after a football match but not after life. All the more reason to enjoy it while we are here. I enjoy blogging and want to leave a big blog.
