The Secrets of Life - Version 259321.2

My friend iskender had some really good comments about the nature of life. His remarks prompted me to reflect on some the secrets of life that I've cobbled together during my 41 years on this planet...

1) Life is a game.
2) You can make up your own rules.
3) Other people make up their own rules.
4) There are very few fixed rules.
5) Definitions are tools, often fluid and imprecise.
6) The common rules are there by agreement between people.
7) Do not assume agreement.
8) Connection is by choice.
9) Work for agreement.
10) Life is not fair. To pretend it is only causes grief and aggravation.
11) There are more or less equal amounts of pain and pleasure. One is often disguised as the other.
12) People are human.
13) You are human.
14) You are alone in all totality; translation: you are connected to all.
15) Your world revolves around you.
16) The goal is to find yourself.
17) Other people are life's mirrors.
18) Your creations change everything.
19) The search never truly ends.
20) Laughter and smiling are good.
22) #21 the BIG secret.
23) Everything that has a beginning also has an end.
23a) Relax

The shorthand version is:

1) Life is a game.
2) Relax.
