In this week’s “Conversations with Dr. Cowan and Friends,” I was honored to welcome Alison McDowell. As I have described, I think it’s possible that humanity is living through a grand chess match at this time, a massive “game” that has its own rules and parameters. If this is the case, as in any game setting, to succeed, one needs to become intimately familiar with the rules. Otherwise, the situation is hopeless.
Some people understandably question that they’re living inside a game at all, and other people acknowledge and even understand what they identify as the game but are overwhelmed or overmatched by the skill of the opponents. And then, a few people, like Alison, see “the game” as it’s unfolding and name its players and rules for others to understand. These people are the grandmasters for freedom.
