"Royal game of Life"

The game of chess was consciously designed to represent our world of transformations on a restricted field of action. The board represents a Monad, the universe, a planet, a communicty, a person, a whole on any level. The game's pieces respresent its elements an their possible actions in the world. The rules of chess are the rules of life, including those governing our own inner nature.

It's called; "A beginners guide to Constructing the Universe (The mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art and Science)
