What is our life? Game…

The game and life have too many identical features. Life, for example, develops according to unpredictable laws. She can turn in one direction and in the other. And start to unfold according to completely new rules. The same thing happens with the game.

The game can also develop according to special rules – if these rules are not too well established. But even in a situation where the rules of the game are constant and are observed exactly as they should be observed, the outcome is unpredictable. It is difficult to predict, and sometimes impossible. The game and life are very similar in this respect. Take, for example, a game of cards. Let’s say in the “fool”.

The game is like a game. There is nothing unusual about it. In addition, there is a trump suit in the deck, which is able to beat any card of any other suit. We go with the smallest card – with twos. We go two – it beats three. We go with another two. And again – three. Then we lay out the last two. And she is suddenly beaten… by a jack. Well, yes – the usual jack of spades. Nothing particularly outstanding – except that we have two more jacks on our hands, of which one is a trump card. And we put the other jack on the table first. And then we spread the trump card. You’ve won this game. The cards were taken by the person we went against. And the next move is also yours. And maybe the rest of the game. If you don’t miss the initiative, you can win the whole game … Now let’s remember the events from our lives. We came to the office where they change tires on cars – from summer to winter. Nothing outstanding. We just need to change the tires. That is, to install studded rubber on the wheels. That’s all. We’re taking a queue.

We are patiently waiting for our moment. Then we explain to the locksmith what we need. And fifteen minutes later we hear in response that… the office closes for lunch. What should we do – if the car is completely “barefoot”, there is no rubber on the wheels, and people who are supposed to be engaged in wheels are preparing for lunch at this moment? It’s clear that. We pick up the tool and begin to change the car. And we finish everything exactly when the locksmiths return from lunch. They come back, and we already have everything on the ointment. And we can leave. We can leave, but what about… money? What kind of money? Yes, for a car “re-shod” in winter tires. But you didn’t change her shoes, right? I changed her shoes myself… and that doesn’t mean anything.

The car is re-shod and – period! Money to the cashier! A short skirmish. And you, having given the money, slowly fly away. That’s it, don’t set foot here again! No way! And where will you go – if you have only one workshop for the whole area, where you can change your car? If you come here, how nice… So it turns out that life wins the game. Wins and beats on all counts. That’s why we say that the game is very similar to life. But only similar. But in fact, it doesn’t look like it at all. And your destiny is to come to this workshop many, many more times – to change the wheels yourself. Moreover, for their own money and with their own hands. We don’t live in Chicago, however.
