profit = all things profit from your profit
profit of the Earth, profit of one another, profit of people we have not met, profit of animals and plants
this is sustainable
most of current human games are self-centered
that's why they do not have good communication with the wider game in which they exist
that's why most of the current human games are stagnating
the update is to learn how to notice what games you're already in and how all games are formed;
then you can start creating 100% your own games
the way we understand the game defines how we play it
and what we get out of it
WESTERN APPROACH to design is varied, but it all lies more or less within the limits of 'design is about making things'. the game of design is understood, even if taken unconsciously, as "humans and things they need in their life".
additionaly, western approach is not much concerned with consciously creating their own life. It's more focused on fighting for the life you want to create. There are some greate exceptions and in reality it's also present on the east. However this simplification serves well for this note only
eastern, or more precisely, JAPANESE APPROACH has noticed some broader aspects. For instance they have noticed that in general humanity develops and discoveres many things in different fields, which however remain accessible, understandable only to the professionals in the respective fields . Simply because the matter of communicating them to unprofessionals is a different task altogether.
However they also noticed the importance of opening up new facets of life for every human being. They are interested in learning new things about life because it allows one to imagine new opportunities in his own future, it also deepens one's experience with life.
And since they are very concerned with consciously creating their own future (they had too many disasters to either rely on 'hope', or fighting with each other, or thinking they can't affect much), they invest into translating this kind of specific knowledge that usually remains only in scientific websites to general public.
That's why Issey Miyake, Naoto Fukasawa, Kawakami Noriko and Satoh Taku created 21_21 Sight Museum. The main purpose of which was to use design in order to translate some specific understandings about certain aspects of life into a language that would be relatable to every human being.
Japanese expanded understanding of the game led them to use design, not only for making 'daily tools', but also as means of expanding what people know about life, so they can create a richer future, more interesting life for themselves.
This is how learning more about the game expands your possibilities and roles you can play in the game.
*obviously this is somewhat of a simplification. everyone plays their own version of a game, choosing aspects in it that are important for them. some don't even bother with these questions and accept the collective understanding. some on the contrary study the game, their own understanding of it and play with the game itself.
**'eastern', 'western', 'japanese' are just reference points. see that it's all about redefining the game, understanding what it consists of, noticing new aspects.
***knowing more about the principles of how games are 'formed' gives you opportunity to freely navigate inside the game, go out of any game, and play better at any game
_****the more you expand your understanding of any game the more roles you can play in any given game _
****any game is located within a 'wider game', you can go to 'the highest' game in which all games exist if you want to explore THE GAME
sharing how to see is more important than showing
thousands of years of art and inventions are completely missed out by humanity even though everyone saw it and read about it
newton has shown how all colours come out from light but how many see colours as 'extensions of light that was narrowed'?
he showed getting to a new level by surpassin polarised ideas by means of going to a level from where polarisation starts, this idea alone, if lived through, could transform each, each aspect of human life to a much better place
the sun doesn't reveal the colours of the world to us every morning, the colours are the light itself
and that's old news, happened around 17 century. how much we missed?
and same with art
how much we heard and saw?
same goes other way around, if you have something to say — ensure its delivery to the level of clicking, not 'understanding'
it's time for masters of seeing to become experts of sharing the skill
so it clicks
