AC 863003 seemed to be triggering memories and reactions in a lot of people (including myself) and then faded off after getting hit as a ludenstard. Trying to remember if he/she returned but I don't think so, seem to recall the thread gelling on the idea that was an irrelevant aside. Odd to have so many connections from that person's posts though. This'll take me at least a day or so, I'm sure. [/quote] I still hold this was added in to get us to look at the book Homo Ludens, lol. [/quote] AC 26993694 can correct me if I'm recollecting wrong, but the Luden person was the source of the initial shot of triggers (ie the peg puzzle, logic grid and etc). The Ludens person claimed to have been a planted child within the program that was to lead the actions of the other children. Looking at homo ludens, in hindsight, is actually kind of interesting. A few things that pop out on review of the wiki are the mythopoeia (myth-making), riddle making, and general writing forms, I suppose really. Mythopoeia (myth-making) was very much an element of the program. I'm not sure but in one of the things that I looked at (oh so helpful), there was a specific section in regards to myth making and the "Hero's Journey". That's pure Homo Ludens theory. Riddles and riddle making, too, were aspects of the curriculum. Gowan heavily emphasized religious figures in his Operations of Increasing Order and there is a corresponding section in Homo Ludens that discusses play in philosophy as, "“At the centre of the circle we are trying to describe with our idea of play there stands the figure of the Greek sophist. He may be regarded as an extension of the central figure in archaic cultural life who appeared before us successively as the prophet, medicine-man, seer, thaumaturge and poet and whose best designation is vates.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homo_Ludens_%28book%29 So yeah, kind of interesting in hindsight. I still don't think that what the Ludens guy says holds water in its entirety. There are aspects, at least from what I can recall, that still just don't wash. In fact, Ludens was right to point us to Homo Ludens. Look what I just found: http://giftededucationproject.wikispaces.com/file/view/Injecting+Play.pdf Cancel looking back over the thread, I'm going to be perusing that wiki. [/quote]
