allusions or dillusions?
There is something that bothers me, personally. I play this game online & normally enjoy it. But I have been having misgivings about perceptions inherent to playing?
It is an oriental board game . . . a simple grid form to the board & black & white stones are played on the points of the grid. the object is to surround territory. In surrounding an area , one seeks to give it 'life' . . . Life is defined by 2 eyes & a nose? To take your opponents stones freedoms. If an area is separated into 2 areas then these eyes can not be closed [all the freedoms filled].
My amateur opinion on the topic of what distinguishes the mentally ill from the almost perfectly sane person, apart from the frequency of illusions, can be the power to understand what is what…
Like the other nite, I was plaing & my oppoenet hadcut off a group so I had worked to liberate those stones.All I had to do was connect the stones, 1 move to connect but then I becaame involved in play to cut His stones, only to lose the life by not making the connection.
I have noted that I seem to go through an extremely intense nervousness associated to intense concentration,
At times I think it is just the game but then what is a game that it should have such meaning to me?
Sometimes I wonder if the aggressive attitude is a subconscious attitude coming to light?
Not saying that it is wrong to play games but I am glad that I don't make my life running around trying to take life from others . . I would really hate living like that wouldn't you? Watching the news & public opinion . . . this republician was saying about the War [in Iraq] & extendig issues of supporting troop increases. Still trying to legitamize The War on Terror? ya, I know that game played it a few times . .
