Think ≠ Chess

Known and unknown,
you were, are and will be pieces of varying value,
in an infinite number of games.

All animals are equal,
but some animals are more equal than others.

George Orwell
You may or may not be playing the games you think.

The chess board is the world,
the pieces are the phenomena of the universe,
the rules of the game are what we call the laws of nature,
the player on the other side is hidden from us.

Thomas Huxley
Are the only two certainties
that there are at least two players,
you and everything that’s not?
