Not sure what the problem is here. The op is saying it;s a mind opener, well I can;t disagree with that.
Yes the game can be a mind opener, because it has been created by the "imagination" of others, and we get to indulge in their imagination, whcih is
new to us, and in a way their imagination has come to life.
As einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination
embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
I think that says it all. In a way our imagination is the ONLY way forward, the only way to new things, and possible futures and new and better ( or
worse haha) ways of life.
Gaining knowledge from books etc does not make someone automatically more intelligent, it is merely repeating what someone else told you, it does not
require much intelligence, in my opinion intelligence is something more, it has a lot to do with using your imagintion.
So yes it is just a game, but it is also a game that has come from many peoples imaginations, that then can inspire other peoples imaginations and
change the future.
LOL I sound crazy, but it's true.
