Homo Ludens, 1938 Play is free, is in fact freedom. Play is not ³real´ life. Play is distinct from ³ordinary´ life both as to locality and duration. Play creates order, is order. Play is connected with no material interest, and no profit can be gained from it.

Average Number of Friends
By Tom Geoghegan BBC News Magazine The more friends you have, the more you earn, says a study. But modern life can allow little time to maintain meaningful relationships, so what's the optimum number of friends? It's widely accepted that friendships are invaluable to the soul but few of us were aware that they could also boost the bank account. A study of 10,000 US students over a period of 35 years suggests the wealthiest people are those that had the most friends at school. Each extra schoolfriend added 2% to the salary. The researchers said this was because the workplace is a social setting and those with the best social skills prosper in management and teamwork. 'I HAVE 700 FRIENDS' Toks Timson, 41, from Croydon, has 707 Facebook friends 'I actually know or have met or worked with or went to school with or am related to at least 550. 'The others are just friends of friends or random adds from people. 'Having that number of friends is a lot of work for sure. I'm a bit of a raver and also someone who makes friends easily.' If a wide circle of friends is taken as a popularity indicator, does that mean the more you have the more successful and happy you are? Or can you have too many? What is the best number? The average number is about 150, says leading anthropologist Robin Dunbar. It may sound like a lot, but think of your Christmas card list - 50 cards to 50 couples = 100 friends. "It's the number of people that you know as persons and you know how they fit into your social world and they know how you fit into theirs. They are a group of people to which you have an obligation of friendship." They usually consist of an inner circle of five "core" people and an additional layer of 10, he says. That makes 15 people - some will probably be family members - who are your central group and then outside that, there's another 35 in the next circle and another 100 on the outside. And that's one person's social world. Aristotle said friends must have eaten salt together Philosopher Mark Vernon Friendships help us develop as people, says Mark Vernon, author of The Philosophy of Friendship,
