Let’s pretend for a moment that we really were created by space aliens, a little simulation for their own amusement. I imagine them looking down at Earth right now, at the pirates and North Korea and the Taliban and Sudan and Iraq and Iran and Israel and Hamas and Mexico, not to mention China and Russia and Obama trying to figure out what on Earth he’s going to do about all this.
Maybe it’s like the game of Diplomacy for them. Maybe they’re figuring out they created the wrong objective for the game. Or maybe they didn’t create an objective – maybe, like in the simulation we facilitators would run in our Personal Mastery workshop, they’ve said “The rules of the game are now in your hands.”
The objective in the Diplomacy game, as it has been in the history of the world, is to gain power. Seems like it’s not working too well.
