The aleatoric “play” is an instrument of intelligence, not a pure negation or substitute….Playfulness is the deliberate, temporary relaxation of rules in order to explore the possibilities of alternative rules. When we are playful we challenge the necessity of consistency. In effect, we announce – in advance – our rejection of usual objections to behavior that does not fit the standard model of intelligence. Playfulness allows experimentation. At the same time, it acknowledges reason. It accepts that at one point….it will integrated into the structure of intelligence.”
