Liked that Feynman analogy.

Re: chess
1) Where the disintegration takes place is when he forgets that what is being integrated is the context with the desired result.

Chess seems a strange game. I tried to improve it a few times:

1) Painted a variety of little plastic dinosaurs with uniforms and helmets and put them on teams on a green playing board resembling a football field with yard stripes. Each dinosaur had its own way of moving. The goal of each team was to go to Disneyland.

2) Using the chess pieces as they are now moved,
the goal is to move all your own pieces to any grouping 2x8 or 4x4 with an open two-square area in the middle where a cloth could be spread with picnic. The only big change from regular chess is that no piece may share a square with another piece except opposing pawns, and no piece may be knocked from its space by anything.

Oh well.
