I wouldn’t say today was one of my better days. However, I did have a delicious breakfast of fried eggs, fried bacon and fried bread ~ a true fry-up. But I have to say, that was the only good thing about it.
Most of the family would be going on an outing today. Arnaud, myself, his younger of two brothers and both his parents.
We visited the centre of Bordeaux where for the most part we wandered the shopping centres and cafés. Pleasant as it may have seemed, but all was not good. Something about today was beginning to stir…
The Cosmic Trinity is a supplementary teaching of Galearthéan cosmology, in that it is the most philoscientific of all astronomical curriculum and as such is to be regarded as an almost separate thesis.
This thesis adopts the theorem that Galearthéa, or our physical world, is both finite and contained, yet of a spiritual infinity.
When I say ‘finite’ and ‘contained’, I mean it has a size, shape and boundary beyond which we cannot physically pass.
Yet when I say of a ‘spiritual infinity’, I mean it has a being, nature and timelessness beyond which we can transcend God.
Aye, the game of Chessatya is not merely a pastime of spiritual recreation between friends, but is also a pastime of spiritual recreation with God.
Whilst the philosophical history behind Chessatya’s creation is one of peace, reconciliation and understanding, Chessatya Solitaire is in fact also a unique philosophical practise completely in and of itself.
As the name suggests, Chessatya Solitaire is indeed a game played solitary. Yet whence thine solitude is one spent meditating with God, thence Chessatya Solitaire is a game shared also with God.
Whilst it is not unusual for Western Chess players to partake in ‘solitaire’ games by themselves, these are in all rationality, only for Opening and positional studies.
For in Western Chess your only opponent is either a real living person or an artificial intelligence simulation.
Chessatya Solitaire is on the other hand a much more sentimentally intimate encapsulation of a “virtual” companion.
That is to say, Chessatya Solitaire embraces through the Dice, the abstract concept of a supernatural opponent. You could call this opponent ‘Karma’, ‘Chaos’ or even ‘God’. Yet for the passionate dedication and purpose for which this game was designed, we will call our companion ‘God’.
Thus the spiritual practise of Chessatya Solitaire is the assertion, proclamation and ascension unto complete honesty and adherence unto God.
This is a game then, of intellectual honesty and an exercise of solitary morale.
