Both have the idea of IDEA BEADS.
The idea of communicating inner experience is essential to the Glass Bead Game:
There is also the idea of a universal language which will transcend ambiguous interpretation?
The frustration with just such a language?
The stasis of attempting hyper-objectivity?
The importance of addressing subjective experience as part of objectivity?
The importance of interpersonal relationships as between Knecht and the young child he leaves to tutor?
Meditations encoded into linguistic communications and Games?
Language as a set of exercises designed to recreate inner experience?
(An organization called The Meru Foundation has been looking at The Hebrew Text of Genesis as perhaps just such an exercise. The Meru Foundation should be a full move in Game One, alas but for time.)
