## Does a digital game industry exist?

“If we take eternity to mean not everlasting time but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present.”

(Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, 1921)

When we say ‘Digital Game Industry’, we can forget most of the assumptions we have learned at courses on economy. Games are not homogeneous, each is one of its kind. They have no standard use, they have quite different forms according to game genres and players. Most games cannot be picked up as a ‘product’ or cannot be put on market shelves. We can’t even ‘open’ some games, we only ‘enter’ or ‘leave’ from its door. What is being sold as a game in fact looks like a ticket. Entrance ticket to a perpetual virtual world, or entrance ticket to a virtual world that will be instantly created for you. There are single tickets, monthly tickets, unlimited tickets. Sometimes the door is left open and there are only ‘items’ that we buy from the virtual shelves of the virtual world. These concern the players.

## encapsulation is relativity

I think, therefore I am.

I am // I think

imaginary // symbolic

(imaginary — symbolic)–> real

suture is partial and relative. relativity is absolute. suture is absolute. suture is real.

[virtuality — structure]–> encapsulation

encapsulation is partial and relative. relativity is absolute. encapsulation is absolute. encapsulation is relativity.

in a conditional relation, subtraction segregates a virtual structure () apart from actual structure {}. a virtual structure is only held up by the dots in it.

We can distinguish “conditional counting” from the usual “structural counting” by “opening” and “dotting” the usual number representations given in set theory:

structural counting:

0 = {}

1 = {0} = {{}}

2 = {0,1} = {0,{0}} = {{},{{}}}

3 = {0,1,2} = {0,{0},{0,{0}}} = {{},{{}},{{},{{}}}}

...

conditional counting:

0' = ·

1' = · {·}

2' = · {·} { · {·} }

3' = · {·} { · {·} } { · {·} { · {·} } }

...

natural numbers are usually shown in set theory as follows:

`0 = {}`

1 = {0} = {{}}

2 = {0,1} = {0,{0}} = {{},{{}}}

3 = {0,1,2} = {0,{0},{0,{0}}} = {{},{{}},{{},{{}}}}

if we introduce objet petit a, a new representation becomes possible:
