The Glass Bead Game for the Caravan of Unity
September 14, 2020 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
The Glass Bead Game is a way of playing with the ideas of human culture; it uses them like a painter paints with the colors on the palette. The insights of the world’s great scholars and artists have been reduced to core topics, with which the Glass Bead Game player plays. It is up to us to design and perfect the game. Theoretically this game can contain the entire knowledge of the universe.
…in 1947 the writer Herman Hesse introduced (in his book of the same name) the Glass Bead Game. It is a truth-seeking process which is played by monks in the futuristic enigmatic province of Castalia. In the book however, he never explains the gameplay. Unlike the culture of Hesse’s time, as we travel into a new millennium, as new and better visions have manifested, mysteriously the rules have been revealed…
Now it can be played by you.
The Glass Bead Game is a game of co-creating ideas, of making sense of our world and finding meaning. The gameplay cleverly merges each player’s viewpoint, making our complex world easier to understand in a non-confrontational way.
The simplest form of the game is a spoken improvisation of one minute turns between two players. Players choose from a set of archetopics as a starting point, and play a total of 10 one minute turns on the subject.
But a game doesn’t have to be eloquent to be good. A good game is fun, and players will have a sense of being heard, of personal achievement and connection.
The aim of the game is to develop clear ideas, deep, unselfish listening, and game awareness which will allow us to participate in the collective intelligence of humanity.
