One might take, by way of analogy, the game of chess. Chess has developed from very simple beginnings. It was a mimic battle for tired warriors; but the subtleties of the modern game - which have now, thanks to Richard Reti, gone quite beyond calculation into the world of aesthetic creation - were latent in the original design. The originators of the game were "building better than they knew."
