|The chess-board is the world; the pieces are the phenomena of the Universe; the rules of the game are what we call the laws of Nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us. We know that his play is always fair, just, and patient. But we also know, to our cost,that he never overlooks a mistake, or makes the smallest allowance for ignorance.|
|T. H. Huxley (1870)|
Now about the little grid below. The date is the day that I began that particular game. The light coloured cells are when I was white and the dark when I was black. The cells where the date is flashing are the games that I won. The cells where the date is in bold are games I'm still in the middle of playing. And the other cells are the games that I lost or stalemated in. I think that's explained everything.
