“The Game of Babylon” / Memorable Fancies #507

     In the game our rulers require us to play, there is no apparent correlation between skill and results, or effort and results. No one has figured out the scoring system. Some say there is no scoring system, that success is only a matter of chance. But few believe this, because to believe would make our lives futile. Instead, there is training in what are believed to be the most effective techniques for winning, but it’s apparent to us that the trainers know no better than we what to do: meditation? mediation? medication? taking IT classes? chanting “AUM” repeatedly?

     Nevertheless, there are winners and losers. We are mostly losers here.
