The Magicians Game - or How Much Truth Can You Stand

The Magicians Game – or How Much Truth Can You Stand

We were having a chat about enlightenment and bogusity at A New Gaia, one of the remnants of the Zaadz Gaia social networking experiment that ultimately failed and vanished. It wasn’t in my group, http://anewgaia.ning.com/group/advancedproblemsinenlightenmenttheoryandpractice but in another interesting group http://anewgaia.ning.com/group/feud.

Anyway, we were all mostly messing about, and something happening there reminded me of the magicians game, something I “invented” long ago, kind of like a “enlightened” wiseguy’s version of the dozens, but played to exalt instead of to put down. You can play it in your head by yourself easily enough, but it gets really sweet when you get the chance to play it, even if only for a few moves, or one move, with another person, or even better, other people.

So I was motivated, for whatever reasons, to try to draw a diagram or an illustration of it, of how the magicians game works. See above, lol.
