Is the play one of the puzzles of the world, or is the world a form of play?
The century is a child who plays with pebbles. Play is the kingdom of a child.
Human plays only when, in the true sense of the word, they are HUMAN.
The play itself is the pinnacle of creative existence, in the pinnacle of freedom, thought the philosopher Schiller.
Condemned and misunderstood severely, in ancient Greece, and for many thinkers, play represents liberation – freedom. Play is a desire to transform the world, and through play and with the great help of art and play, thinkers Nietzsche and Kierkegaard agree.
The play without the need for theorizing is the ultimate freedom of children, but also of adults.
The play for adults, at first, means dancing.
But it is deeper in essence.
Playing through life is one thing, playing with life is the second possible, and playing life is the third meaning, the worst for us, as free beings.
If we perceive the play as children, who indulge in it playfully, without any expectations, it would be nice and easy for us.
If, for a play that could follow us through life, we choose to be bad, unscrupulous, unconscious, then we are likely to become a poor product of our imagination.
From historical point of view, dances have been part of social occasions, ranging from ritual dances to nature, through ceremonial dance-balls to show the status, carnival-pagan dances to entertaining ordinary people, to the Olympic Games in honour of body and mind or to dances in theatre…
Or ballet as a dance with the wind…
Thinking games like chess or playing like a tarot to predict the future.
Play is always relaxed by any daily political events, that is, it is played only in peacetime.
According to ancient Chinese teachings, the goal of the play is to keep the world in balance, as well as to direct human nature towards love.
So let’s let our life dance with us, in balance.
