Rules of Play

I have uncovered another treasure in my efforts to clean out. This one is from 2002. It's Desmond Morris' Rules of Play from The Naked Ape."

  1.  You shall investigate the unfamiliar until it becomes familiar.
  2. You shall impose rhythmic repetition on the familiar.
  3. You shall vary this repetition in a many ways as possible.
  4. You shall select the most satisfying of these variations and develop these at the expense of others.
  5. You shall compose and recombine these variations one with another.
  6. You shall do this for its own sake, as an end in itself.
Who would have thought that cleaning could bring so much food for thought?
