“They are playing a game. They are playing at not playing a game. If I show them I see they are, I shall break the rules and they will punish me. I must play the game, of not seeing I see the game.
If I don’t know I don’t know, I think I know;
If I don’t know I know, I think I don’t know.” – R.D. Laing “Knots”
These two separate lines have been spinning in my head. This paradox of knowing that an entire company or team is playing a game while playing at not playing a game. I may be aware of this game, BUT if I question them about this game, I am breaking their internal rules of this game, perhaps forcing me to be out. This will not help either of us …
If we allow this game to continue, change may not happen.
