THE INFINITY GAMES
‘Life is an ever changing composition’
During the last couple of years I’ve been working on a project called THE INFINITY GAMES. I’d love to tell you a little bit about it, because I’m very passionate about this project and I see it as my life’s work.
I’m developing a platform that exists both in online space and in physical space. It’s a place for collaboration. With this platform I intend to offer ideas and tools for people to think and rethink everything in their lives at all times. In practice, this means that I’m transforming my life’s philosophy into tools you can play with (by yourself and with others). The tools comprise of digital applications and a card game. You can read inspirational articles and a graphic novel as well.
The concept of The infinity Games is based on my life’s philosophy. It’s about learning to see yourself as a tiny part of a much bigger and infinite whole, while at the same time still seeing yourself as a very important individual. Simply put: you zoom in and you zoom out. I’ve created a method called ‘The Composition Method’. It helps you to visualise a complex situation so you can simplify it and then go back to seeing its complexity again. You can learn to adapt this method for yourself in your every day life, but you can easily apply this method to all kinds of topics.
My philosophy refers to a combination of holism and pragmatism. These concepts are as old as existence itself, but philosophers never really seemed to manage making these concepts accessible for a widespread audience. Most expressions of holism or pragmatism are associated with spiritual and theoretical movements. I’d like to argue that they can be turned into a practical lifestyle. A great guide for all kinds of people, from scientists to company managers, to cleaners, mothers, fathers, and children. I’ve created this project to share my thoughts and at the same time conduct research to develop them further. I’m implementing the input of all people who make use of The Infinity Games and the Composition method. I aim to use the data of the users’ behaviour to write, create and reflect, and to study them with Artificial Intelligence research methods. My research can be followed on the Infinity Games platform where I write blog posts. (You're reading it now!) A first scientific paper on these topics was published this year.
