Play

We humans play a lot of games https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game . We learn by playing together in our world. Some games are overt games we play together just for fun, other games are serious and full of meaning, and are played against each other. If we understand the term in a wide sense, even war can be understood as a sad and deadly game we play.

This understanding of playing games led Johan Huizinga to the description of the "homo ludens", the playing human. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_ludens.

"The human only plays, where he is human in the true sense of the word, and he is only fully human , where he plays." Friedrich Schiller.

»Der Mensch spielt nur, wo er in voller Bedeutung des Worts Mensch ist, und er ist nur da ganz Mensch, wo er spielt.« Friedrich Schiller
