“Life is a game. In order to have a game, something has to be more important than something else. If what already is, is more important than what isn’t, the game is over. So, life is a game in which what isn’t, is more important than what is.”– Werner Erhard.
Sometimes in life another person’s action may seem aimless and misdirected. But to the person whose life is actively involved in the activity there is a reason and a purpose known only to them.
Many folks find what they are searching for and reap the benefits of their so-called aimless actions.
It’s all in the eyes of the beholder.
