Winning gives birth to hostility.
Losing, one lies down in pain.
The calmed lie down with ease,
having set winning & losing aside.

A Quote by James P. Carse on finite play, infinite play, war, weapons, contradictions, machine, winning, contest, and eliminate

If to operate a machine is to operate like a machine, then we operate not only with each other like machines, we opearte each other like machines. And if a machine is`most effective when it has no effect, then we opearte each other in such a way that we reach the outcome desired - in such a way that nothing happens.

All weapons are designed to affect others without affecting ourselves, to make others answerable to the technology we control. Weapons are the equipment of finite games designed in such a way that they do not maximize the play but eliminate it. Weapons are meant not to win contest but to eliminate them. Killers are not victors; they are unopposed competitors, players without a game, living contradictions. - James P. Carse
