And the game goes on

and like all infinite games, the goal is not to win, it is to perpetuate the game*
Simon Sinek

The ego, static and unmoved, relates to the world in terms of having objects, while the self is related to the world in the process of participation.**
Erich Fromm

Having is about winning, and
winning requires that the game is ended, and
the trophy presented.
Being, though, is
an infinite game, continuing
all the way to the end,
The thing we must do
beyond and outside the lines.
