"The chess-board is the world; 

the pieces are the phenomena of the universe; 

the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. 

The player on the other side is hidden from us. 

We know that his play is always fair, and patient. 

But also we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance."


-                 Thomas Henry Huxley



Too bad unholy "chess masters" play only on tiny mundane chessboards of Caesar that loosely fit into one small square of the real board.


In that small space, the unholies move and remove pieces around and around in place; 

never really playing on the real board;


Thinking themselves winners in the game of life never truly played, of a sorry life never really lived.



Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
