We’re still wild animals. I have a cat that plays “stalk & attack” with another cat. It enjoys pretending to be a wild animal stalking prey, but it’s just playing. When people play games, whether football or Monopoly, etc, it’s about moving past obstacles in the pursuit of something, must get this object from opposition, move it over here, thrill of the chase, hunting and gathering. Same with people hunting bargains, or hunting and “making a killing” on investments.

The enjoyment arises from exploitation of primeval neurological wiring. We’re still animals.

That’s ok. We’ll be using the same cerebral wiring as an advanced civilization exploring the galaxy..
