As the world grows more complex and the unknowns grow, the dominance of finite games is diminishing, Carse believes. We would do well, he suggests, to look to another part of our tradition and others, the infinite part. Learn to be more open to life's mysteries. Go into today's wildernesses (personified by New York City, which he believes is a deeply spiritual place) open to surprise. Begin to see an on-going history, he says, and we will begin to find ways to keep that history alive.

I wonder what "learn to be more open to life's mysteries" actually means.
