To easier win a game of chance,
play with more certain knowledge
of your attachment and aversion.

‘Scissors, Paper, Stone!’
Does it make any sense to have
one as a favourite in the game,
when each is equally powerful,
just as each is equally weak?
‘Scissors, Paper, Stone!’

Scissors can cut Paper,
but it can be crushed by Stone.
Stone can crush Scissors,
but it can be wrapped by Paper.
Paper can wrap Stone,
but it can be cut by Scissors.

With attachment being a weakness,
the only skill required to win,
is to predict the likely attachment
of your opponent’s move to be
Scissors, Paper or Stone,
and to respond accordingly.

However, your prediction is
but a guess, not truth itself,
that if also attached to,
becomes a weakness too,
that your opponent can respond to.
‘Scissors, Paper, Stone!’  

To even easier win a game of chance,
play with more certain knowledge
of others’ attachment and aversion.
