Let’s say that chess played at its highest level is more an art than a mathematical exercise for human players. Let’s further assume that the gods exist and intervene in our lives. Does chess glorify the gods’ creation or blaspheme it? What is our fate regarding our attitude towards chess whether we are immortal and must seek the gods’ pleasure and approval, or return to dust?

I’m just asking at this point. Maybe, just asking myself for that matter because on days like these the machinations of the universe seem like chess moves to which I must respond.

The day wears on. I must do other things than think about the place of chess in the universe. Chess and the meditations it spawns will evaporate like the morning dew.
