“Do not be satisfied with the stories that come before you. Unfold your own myth.” – Rumi
Play the Infinite Game, and Be the Infinite Player(s) you and we are meant to be…
The platform website for the game will be at InfiniteGameX.com. This is to emphasise that X is for the unknown, for mystery and possibility. X is also a multiplier, a sign of friendship, affection and love, and it is for eXperiencing the ultimate win-win game!
The other advantage of calling the platform “Infinite Game X” is because it opens up the greatest possibilities for anyone to develop an Infinite Game for the platform, and to give it their own name, such as “Infinite Community Game”, “Infinite Education Game”, “Infinite City Game”, “Infinite Health Game”, “Infinite Economics Game”, “Infinite Enterprise Game”, “Infinite Governance Game”, “Infinite World Game”, and much more…
What & Why in Brief
The Infinite Game is a proposal to launch the ultimate creative social system science experiment and global impact game, aiming to unleash Infinite Players’ creativity, consciousness and calling capabilities, their Genius, to make a difference in their own lives and the local and wider world around them. Consciousness must rise globally to accelerate our transition to sustainability, and boldly go beyond to full flourishing, co-evolving with the genius and mystery of life, of nature, and a unified, infinite Cosmos.
Humanity is still playing far below its highest potential and is currently threatening its own existence, with a real and present danger of extinction this century. The timing is right for this serious game and platform that can attract a billion players within five years, also becoming a meme, a movement, an ecosystem, and a new grand living story.
Each and every Infinite Player will be discovering, developing, deploying and deepening their Genius, individually and collaboratively, in service of the greater good. They are the “CEO” of their own lives because of an understanding and appreciation of the fact that each is a “Consciously Evolving Original”, meant to be living their life on purpose.
Shifting from Our Finite Games to the Infinite Game
A Global Innovation Ecosystem and Platform for Speeding-Scaling-Levelling-Up Social Impact Initiatives serving People, Planet, Purpose and Inclusive Prosperity (that includes a generative “full wealth” version of “Profit”)
The Game is inspired by the infinite game of life and by many past, present and emerging changemakers and change agents. In 1986 The Free Press published “Finite and Infinite Games: A Vision of Life as Play and Possibility” by James P. Carse. It opens with:
“There are at least two kinds of games. One could be called finite, the other infinite. A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play.”
We also pay homage to Buckminster Fuller (World Game and Operating Manual for Spaceship Earth) and other giants on whose shoulders we feel privileged to stand to get a grander view…
There is more than enough talent, technology, timing and will to collectively “shift our game”, tap our highest generative potentials, unlock better and faster sensing, thinking, being and doing together, for bold flourishing futures for all.
Let’s together seize the opportunity now to shift from limiting, myopic, win-lose, zero-sum “finite games” to win-win “infinite games” and, ultimately, the infinite game. In the process we can transform governance systems and global investing to be primarily “impact-driven”, for positive returns across all social, economic, cultural and environmental dimensions.
An infinite game (of fractal finite and infinite games) platform hub can become a go-to destination and showcase for the ideation, design, financing, development, marketing, distribution and playing of diverse inclusive games and immersive integrative “levelling-up experience environments”, that spawn transmedia strategies and portfolio offerings across all types of creative output, from artworks, books, games, movies, music, to places, policies, and many other impact-driven projects and ventures that shift us and keep us playing the infinite game.
This will be across direct, virtual, alternate, and blended/augmented realities, on missions and quests that all contribute to enriching the education, entertainment, efficacy, enterprise and elevation of infinite players and the “feedback loops” from all realms, growing their individual and collective awareness, wisdom, skills, influence, and local and global impact for inclusive thrivable shared futures of extraordinary evolutionary progress and abundance.
Co-designing, prototyping, and continually evolving and advancing new realities for communities, cities, towns and villages that can feed into real world policies, programs, ventures, and new “WEL Zones” based on the Wealth Economics of Life, that provide physical-digital infrastructures forming dynamic generative “feedback loops” between the games and the real world so that they are always “levelling up” each other…
Each Infinite Player can choose to have their profile and scores, from any or all of the serious games they play via the platform, published on InfiniteGame.org and InfinitePlayer.org, intended to recognise and promote all players positively impacting their local and wider world, and attract partners, schools, employers, investors, supporters, advocates, and other generative relationships.
Depending on user feedback, player-managed websites linked to InfinitePlayer.org can evolve for local, national, wider regional and global communities of players to, for example, operate their own page(s) on the site, and much more, making it as easy and effective as possible to find each other, play, partner, progress and prosper for the greater good.
