Helping you become more intuitive, effective, efficient, precise, productive, and financially independent through Gamer Thinking and Solving Puzzles
What is the meaning of life, and how can you use applied game theory, gamer psychology, and puzzle-solving to not only survive but prosper
Q. Lewis, Tell me more about how I can become more effective by treating life as if it is a game to be won, or as a puzzle to be solved?
A. To relate to life as if it is a puzzle or a game requires different ways of thinking. This includes thinking patterns built around strategies for success (called mixed strategies in game theory) as well as observing different elements of life as a type of Jigsaw puzzle.
A jigsaw puzzle requires the assembly of often oddly shaped interlocking and tessellating pieces. Each piece usually has a small part of a picture on it; when complete, a jigsaw puzzle produces a complete picture. In some cases, more advanced types have appeared on the market, such as spherical jigsaws and puzzles showing optical illusions.
Now let’s explore the ideas presented in these AskLewis Blogs and the Podcast on my Youtube channel at AskLewis, Lewis Harrison. These are all concerned with “Winning the Game of Life”. Winning the game of life is a puzzle that requires the assembly of often oddly shaped interlocking ideas and strategies –friendship, career, social networking, family, spirituality, hobbies, etc.. Each piece usually has a small part of a conceptual picture in it; when complete, this jigsaw puzzle of ideas produces a complete picture; a game that must be played and won. In some cases, more advanced games appear that seem to be based on contradiction, paradox, and ambiguity. In these conceptual games non-linear, intuitive, seemingly irrational strategies must be developed in order to win.
Doing this requires training and results-oriented life coaching
In an ideal world Game theory and game-based thinking would be a waste of time. The extraordinary person would simply do what Lao Tzu, the great Chinese –Taoist Sage did. Once he realized that most people were just clueless, and would never get “It”, he left town, went to a mountain community with a gatekeeper and hung out with all the other Yodas where people were motivated by love, emotional balance, clarity of thought, compassion and personal contentment. These visionary thinkers have no interest in living a zero-sum life motivated by anger, greed, lust, vanity, attachment, and ego that seems to motivate many.
Of course, we do not live in an idealized world and there are many people who cannot conceive of winning at the game of life unless someone else loses.
There are many good and kind people who have been trained to see the world as a zero-sum game.
The truth is that there really is “enough” for everyone and unless the visionary thinker chooses to isolate themselves they must engage the world that not only allows them to survive and prosper but also to serve others by strategizing so that those committed to a zero-sum way of thinking are limited in their ability to spread their negative ideas and influence.
At times, these negative thinkers cannot be restrained through gentleness, requests for collaboration, or the respecting of established or agreed-upon boundaries. They seem to have a need to “cheat”, take what isn’t theirs and at times to do so violently.
In a world like this one needs strategic tools to avoid violence whenever necessary and to change a negative thinking person’s thoughts, words and deeds through subtle influence, stealth and effective, efficient, and productive strategizing.
In common situations applied game-based thinking can help create a positive, abundant, and inclusive environment.
In more complex and even extreme scenarios the ability to apply game-based thinking with Classical Mathematical Game Theory can give an individual so advanced an arsenal of strategic tools that even the most skilled, evil cheater, can be easily out-witted and disarmed both physically, emotionally and intellectually.
During my years as a shaman’s apprentice, one of my teachers would joke “when you master game-based thinking and are able to merge it with love and compassion you won’t even be allowed in hell because the devil will have a restraining order against you!”
Of course, I am not a master of anything, but I am always learning to be more effective, efficient, precise, productive, and self-aware on a daily basis.
