I think, the idea of Shapeflow may have great explanatory power and potential for impact, especially, if we devise a game -- let's call it "Body" -- where this structure that you (as ingested substance (say, game player)) is travelling through, is a human body that is getting sick or clogged over time, and your target, as a substance, is to go successfully through that network of metabolic pathways. Kids (or maybe AlphaZeros) playing such games might devise many strategies that we do not know of... and, no cheating, dear AI -- with going through all the necessary parts, where you get extra points -- so, that you wouldn't suddenly convert the gamified human body into a topological doughnut.

oh, love it! in my MUTANTU book, the readers comically explore the inside of the body, like blood vessels and intestines (where the action of my comics happens!) :)


As much as you may think this is an art, going through a human body as a game world would be highly (I mean it: highly) educational, that could result in kids gaining confidence in actually doing something about human bodies. For example, if the game had special extra tools, like what you collect a big mushroom in Super Mario Bros, giving extra powers to move through certain pathways, unclogging congested arteries, and letting grandmother see the world again without flickering eyesight, or getting a super gun, that allows to cut through, or fix certain pathways... That game could be so fun (and educational!) to play. But I should encourage moving to Shapeflow page with further comments, as this topic is more general it seems. ;)
