New Life #412 – The Developing Force In A Game
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz


How does a game turn into exercises for human development? Why is it fundamental to life and what is the purpose of a game in our lives?

Children play roles that they know and learn, like a father, mother, doctor, patient, etc. Beyond that, games also add a sense of competition, excitement, and action to life. This is why we like to play.

A game is a source of pleasure because this is how we relate to it in the first place. We can turn anything in life into a game by changing our attitude to it. We should give this priority. When a child plays, he develops. He imagines himself in a better state and makes an effort to achieve it. When a child has to stop playing, he is sorry because he feels that he grows as he plays.

Grownups don’t play football anymore but become passive and watch it on TV; there is no development and no growing in that, only waning and growing old.

If an adult does not continue to develop constantly like a child with wide-open eyes, he dies when he reaches the age of 30.
