Our way through Life is an intricate Labyrinth that leads us from experience to experience and from lesson to lesson, within the great adventure of learning to be the being.
The Question is, either to keep on repeating until death the role of the greedy monkey that we already know how to play so well
or to try the effort of becoming the universal man or woman first, and afterwards,the cosmic human being that all the good seeds of our kind carry inside.
This game is a guide for the hardy wayfarers of the Great Path.
