The Floor is Lava – Public Play edition

Thu, 20 Apr 2017 11:11:35 +0000

(image)

(image) The Floor is Lava (a.k.a. Hot Lava) is, quoth the Wikipedian:

a game, usually played by children, in which the players imagine that the floor or ground is made of lava (or any other lethal substance, such as acid or quicksand), and thus avoid touching the ground lest they get burned or otherwise injured.

Inner Speech

Wed, 19 Apr 2017 11:06:56 +0000

(image)

(image) Our inner voices are fragmented, There is no unitary self. We are all in pieces, struggling to create the illusion of a coherent ‘me’ from moment to moment.

Visions of Infinity

Tue, 18 Apr 2017 11:06:43 +0000

(image)

(image) It's a vision of infinity, no?

What a thing! What a discovery! How pure and profound the playfulness that created this! Not just a vision, but a vision of infinity as a virtual-conceptual playground. A vision of our imagination envisioning infinity. This product of collective genius demonstrating envisioning a near-infinity of visions, vision after vision, infinity after infinity.

Baggyball

Baggyball also available via the wayback machine, orginally from the DeepFun Weblog of Blessed Memory FRIDAY, MAY 20, 2005  This is a "Bubblebag." It is called a Bubblebag because it is made of a plastic grocery bag wrapped around a chunk of bubble wrap. Note, if you will, that there is no tape being used…

Of Playfulness and Playing Together

(image)

(image) We are born players. When we are completely ourselves and completely together is me is spiritual play. It’s in dance, rituals, art, in love, in taking walks.

Deathball

Mon, 10 Apr 2017 11:04:47 +0000

(image)

(image) In Deathball two teams try to bring an invisible ball across the line at the other side of a small field. Like in Rugby, they can only throw the ball backward or carry it with them forward. The players are allowed to use every violent act they think of to their opponents during the game. For every or no reason at all.

Need Fun? Who Doesn’t?

Fri, 07 Apr 2017 09:03:48 +0000

(image)

(image) And I said to myself, "how cool!" How cool that we actually want to do the things we need to do! How cool is that?!

Fun is good.

And anyone who tells us different isn't.

The Attitude of Playfulness

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 10:45:07 +0000

(image) Playfulness is a physical, psychological, and emotional attitude toward things, people, and situations. It is a way of engaging with the world derived from our capacity to play but lacking some of the characteristics of play.
