Several times in the last 15 years, I have had the opportunity to mention what I call the Game : those human activities not concerned with physical survival (feeding oneself, protecting oneself or reproducing), but rather man’s incapacity to accept the confrontation with the absurdity of his existence (Pascal, Camus etc.). When faced with the emergencies of survival, playful activities or pastimes (such as Solitary), are a response to the necessity to artificially justify time that we do not devote to physical survival and that our conscience leads us to appreciate in its immense void. There are a large number of games of this sort : philosophy, theology, fundamental scientific research, art, games etc.

An unexpected convergence, allowing us to share the fate and ambition of those whom we might consider to be the furthest away from us in respect of their practice.
