If It Isn't A Religion Then What Is It?
A starfish, chopped into bits, will regenerate into dozens of starfish - so
is a chopped up starfish one starfish, or fifty? The problem lies in trying
to apply concepts of integer arithmetic to starfish, where they don't work.
Asking whether MOOism is a religion, an art form, a game, or some
sort of absurdist protest against the universe is like asking how many
starfish. These semantic categories were invented to explain a series of
phenomena - human behaviour. If we come across a phenomenon that breaks
those semantic categories, the fault is not in IT, but in THEM.
Still, it has some of the characteristics of
some of Art, some of
some of a game. It has, however, very few
characteristics of a watermelon.
