Gamifination

The Nation of the Game.

A clerk throws a paper ball into a basket, a pedestrian crosses the street jumping from one white line to the other, a young person makes animal figures with the shadows of his hands while waiting for the bus, a driver sings karaoke to the radio while he drives. Are they childish people? No, they are not. They are playing, naturally. They live in GAMIFINATION as so many of us do. Gamifination is a way of living that helps us break the routine; it helps us to be more aware, using a part of the brain that helps us to think differently, to be mentally agile; to look at things in another way. It is not a game. It is a serious matter and it has an incalculable power. We live in the nation of gamification and the population rises by the day.
