While finite games are externally defined, infinite games are internally defined. The time of an infinite game is not world time, but time created within the play itself. Since each play of an infinite game eliminates boundaries, it opens to players a new horizon of time.*
Internal life is generating life.
It’s not so much a destination – does anyone have it fully? – but more a state of flux, of movement, of questioning and exploring around a deep core.
It does not come to us unbidden.
