Pretending To Play


A game?




Connect Four?

Connect 7.8 Billion?

The vertical human checkers game.

Where you can sneak up on your opponent and win the game.

Connected with every human being living alive?

And everyone who has died?

And who will ever live?

And who will ever die?

This life.

This game we play.

Player one.

Or player 7,799,999,999.

We all decide.

Decide to play this lovely game.

Lovely strategizing.

Lovely planning.

We feel like it's an 'infinite' game.

It's not the long game at all.

It's shorter than short.

There's no winning.

There's no losing.

There's no game at all.

Only pretending to play.
