An interpretation I couldn't help thinking of in response to Rock, Paper, and Scissors:

There is no one real power, because for every great diety to arise there will be another to limit it. Whether they are forces, people, ideas, history, etc. there is a universal and natural checks and balance system which maintains the universe and keeps all stable.

Just an idea, Swamz

It's possible natural selection is like a type of constantly shifting game of rock paper scissors. The difference is that rock may temporarily grow more powerful and kill off more scissors, but soon paper will rise to defeating rock again and scissors will evolve to becoming more resistant to rock, like an organic stairway of evolution between the predators and the prey.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Exactly!

There is always something greater, and if there isn't... there isn't YET.

We all know it's not truely random; humans do make some sort of decision when trying to trick others

I used to play with my ex and win ~80% of the time. Some people are easier to read than others.

Speaking of which, I've developed a serious interest in poker recently. Watch out Swami! :razz:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Oh boy, wouldn't that be a juicy match. Swami has the experience. You have the personality and good looks. Match of the Titans. :grin:

I suggest playing pokey

I used to play that with my ex too... oh, wait... that's not what you meant. Nevermind...  :eek:
