Finite and Infinite GamesSystems thinking
Life is an infinite game. We should stop playing it like a finite one.
- The rules of the finite game may not change; the rules of an infinite game must change.
- Finite players play within boundaries; infinite players play with boundaries.
- Finite players are serious; infinite games are playful.
- A finite player plays to be powerful; an infinite player plays with strength.
- A finite player consumes time; an infinite player generates time.
- The finite player aims for eternal life; the infinite player aims for eternal birth.
- The choice is yours.
