    Finite games can be played within an infinite game, but an infinite game cannot be played within a finite game. If there were, there would have to be a rule for those rules, and so on. Genuine historians therefore reverse the assumption of the observers of nature that the observation itself cannot be an act of nature. Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems; we are continuing to work to improve these archived versions.

    A player who is being pushed all over Finite and infinite book field by an apparently superior opponent may display an unsuspected burst of activity at the end and take the victory. Note: Language itself is metaphorical? It is the genius in us who knows that the past is most definitely past, and therefore not forever sealed but forever open to creative reinterpretation. When you pit a finite player against a finite player, the system is stable. To operate a machine is to operate like a machine, we not only operate with each other like machines, we operate each other like machines. Fourth, you have to have the capacity for existential flexibility.

    What ends up happening is that the finite player will always find themselves in a quagmire, racing through the will and resources they need to stay in the game. I'm not sure. This is the sort of playfulness implied in the ordinary sense of such terms as entertainment, amusement, diversion, comic relief, recreation, relaxation. We live with each other in a common history. No one is forced to be a lawyer, but once you decide to be a lawyer, there are rules you must follow to continue being a lawyer.

This is true with all roles. A finite player is trained not only to anticipate every future possibility, but to control the future, to prevent it from altering the past.

If the silence of nature is the possibility of language, language is the possibility of history. Personally, I really enjoy this style Finite and infinite book bite-sized writing, but I can see how some people would be turned off.

To some readers, the assertiveness and bold, truth-speaking voice might come off as arrogant or preachy. Note: writing as thinking Storytellers do not convert their listeners; they do not move them into the territory of a superior truth.

Ideology is the amplification of myth. Education leads toward a continuing self-discovery; training leads toward a final self-definition. Note: Encourage new possibilities in writing to show the finite players their finiteness Art is not art, therefore, except as it leads to an engendering creativity in its beholders.

Some people will find this inscrutable and infuriating; others, sensing that deeper meaning lurks just under the surface of the words, will be irresistibly drawn in.

MACHINES ARE OUT, GARDENS ARE IN

When you pit an infinite player versus an infinite player, the system is also stable. It was an effort to find visions that promised still more vision. One cannot be human by oneself. It is a place for growth, maximum spontaneity. There is no possibility of conversation with a loudspeaker.

So while Carse does not give any step-by-step advice on how to become an infinite player, maybe you just need to, you know, meditate or something.

They are not, however, makers of actualities, but makers of possibilities. However, even as children, we learned that if a playmate packs up her toys to go home, the Finite and infinite book is lost. Genuine historians therefore reverse the assumption of the observers of nature that the observation itself cannot be an act of nature.

Dramatic[ edit ] Carse continues these conceptualizations across all major spheres of human affairs. Whoever merely follows the script, merely repeating the past, is culturally impoverished. Power is concerned with what has already happened; strength with what has yet to happen.

What they learn is not about sexuality, but how to be more concretely and originally themselves, to be the genius of their own actions, to be whole.

It's like those lists newspapers used to Finite and infinite book at Finite and infinite book beginning of each year - what's in and what's out. Oh, the games people play! What limits vision is rather the incompleteness of that vision.

It is not Finite and infinite book line; it has no place; it encloses no field; its location is always relative to the view. He started to see that many of the struggles that organizations face exist simply because their leaders were playing with a finite mindset in an infinite game. Indeed, no finite play is possible without it.

Surprise in finite play is the triumph of the past over the future. Winners, especially celebrated winners, must prove repeatedly they are winners. If to look is to look at what is contained within its limitations, to see is to see the limitations themselves.

To be prepared for surprise is to be educated. He surveys our world—from the finite games of the playing field and playing board to the infinite games found in culture and religion—leaving all we think we know illuminated and transformed.

In infinite play one chooses to be mortal inasmuch as one always plays dramatically, that is, toward the open, toward the horizon, toward surprise, where nothing can be scripted.Infinite players freely enter into finite games.

If one must play, one cannot play. In entering into a finite game, as long as they are to play the game seriously, they must choose to forget that they have chosen to enter into a finite game. Throughout the book, Carse describes finite games as theatrical and infinite games as dramatic.
