For a long time we have lost the perspective of the radical capacity of the game to generate mental spaces of cohesion of each one of the civilizations and cultures that made it up, that is, its power to create intersubjective networks of meaning. Thus, the game has been an artifact of generation of meaning and mental connection between the members belonging to the same identity culture since the Neolithic, passing through Ancient Egypt, the Middle Ages and until reaching our strange days plagued by drones and artificial intelligence.

The video game and all its technological and philosophical ramifications have invaded all facets of contemporary human life and will continue to do so until modifying the structures of our own brain in what may become the inevitable next human cognitive hacking. We will delve deeper into these concepts through this talk.
