202. If Life Is a Game Who Is Winning?  
18:57:00, October 28th, 2007
 
 
John Henry Holliday, DDS
First of all, life a serious pursuit. It is such a short time to create ourselves, to balance desire and morality so that we may become rich with character. It is such a short time to create ourselves, through suffering, through error, through love. It is such a short time to develop our distinct souls, if we are concentrated enough to do so. And if we do not - if we take what is given, regard everything we see with blank naive gaze, then we may as well not have been born. It is those of character that create the world and any scant glimmer or all-illuminating searchlight of meaning within it. Is that the winning of the game - discerning meaning? If it is so, then we all win, those of us who discern meaning, and those of us who create meaning, and those of us who embody meaning. And the rest? They can receive and sit without understanding. They can try to buy identity with money, and they can think that they are defined by simple preference sets and entertainments, and they can fool themselves into thinking they deserve love and respect and attention because they simply exist. But they will never win nor know there is a game. Those who play, win. It is a co-operative game.

Theodore 'Hickey' Hickman: Think it over
Y'know, what you say sounds true enough, Doc... Something about it's almost a little, ah, a little discouraging, somehow. Or maybe I'm just low, right now. Can't rightly say it, either way.

Still, I think you're onto something. Not that we'd expect anything else from you, but there it is.
