Rules of the game WE all are playing

Rules of the game WE all are playing

There is an ocean at the bottom of which there are countless dangerous creatures suffering miserably, beyond the ocean, there is an island, a place where there is no pain, but only permanent bliss/ happiness and there is a ship sailing in the ocean.

There are many people with different abilities, knowledge, and resources traveling on the ship. These differences are as per the standard rules applicable to everyone.

These people on the ship indulge in various activities while on the ship. People with abilities and knowledge are busy with using their skills to earn money and acquire resources; people who already have more resources are still busy in splurging in excesses, earning more money and acquiring more resources. Some of these resourceful people are also helping others who have fewer resources. This way they feel good having done good for the deprived people. Some are busy in improving the ship and some are busy in improving the living condition of the travelers of the ship. Some are busy enhancing their knowledge about the ship and people of the ship. Some are busy in ruling people on the ship.

Rules

Rules of the game:

Everyone on the ship will be thrown out of the ship anytime without any prior notice or intimation.

They will sink if they don’t know how to swim and will join those many suffering creatures living at the bottom.

They do not have knowledge about these rules when they enter the ship, but they have to know it by their own during their ship stay.

The moot question for all the travelers of the ship:

What should be the first priority of everyone traveling on the ship?

  1. To earn more money
  2. To splurge on excesses
  3. To acquire more resources
  4. To help other deprived people with money and resources
  5. To waste time on irrelevant activities and acquiring irrelevant information
  6. To meet and know more people on the ship – socialising
  7. To improve everything in and about the ship

    Or

  8. To know everything about and prepare for swimming?

Pondering over the moot question is important for all of us because we all are the travelers on the ship.
