If we play the game where one of us has to win and the other - lose, then it's a finite game. Basketball, organ playing competitions, selling through spamming, or punishment for bad behavior through assignments in class are like that.
Here's another game: I throw the ball and you catch it and then we take turns; or you show me what you have created and we both are delighted; or here's my idea, give me your idea, and then we both interact about ideas. This is an infinite game with both sides as winners.
It turns out that our changing time rewards more people who play an infinite game. A game where the winners don't win and the losers don't lose. They just earn the privilege to keep playing.
That's all we ever ask for, isn't it?
