To paraphrase the Bible in the beginning was the Game. Or maybe like this: there always was the Game. Even eternity becomes a unity of time if it is a demand of a given simulacrum. I suppose that everything born in the universe is made for playing. Or the Game as an absolute builds the universe, it depends on the point of view. First if a child’s, second, an adult’s.  Yet that doesn’t assert the naivety of the first or the absolute wisdom of the second. For example, Einstein was sure that investigating the behaviour of atoms was a play-game in comparison to the child’s game. In some sense his concepts connecting material and energy proves that the greatest openings and creations are based on the Game as a victory of imagination over the calculation.
