It’s all luck—the games, the bench swings, the gravity. What’s a swing’s motion if not a play of gravity? And what’s a good game if someone doesn’t flip the board? I’m reminded of Machiavelli’s The Prince, his published job application on how to develop political prowess and how to win at the second most important game there is. I’m also reminded of Sun Tzu’s Art of War. Both are stratagems to avoid the Long Fall, both involve cunning, deceit, and gains of power. Both are noise in the wind when put against gravity and a little bit of luck.
