Chess is a mind game that challenges me, as a player, with it’s complexity. For example, amounts of possible games of 40 moves or less P(40) is approximately 10^(40). Basically bursting with countless variations. Planning, evaluation, best moves, tactics, calculation and creativity are all the crucial necessities to winning a game. As a human, inclined to make mistakes in life, it requires immense effort to pull through a full tiring, long game without making any blunders. My bad experiences in chess are plentiful, but one I particularly regret is when I lost a game due to a blunder I made in a winning position, sleepy and weary I was.
I often admire Alpha Go’s rapid computing speed and energies, by far excelling humans’ ability to play the intellectual game. AlphaGoZero performed outstandingly by defeating his sibling G Alpha Go through unsupervised learning based on an algorithm of density estimation. In other words, it started from scratch without any training samples of maters’ games score sheets. AlphaGoZero resorted to a computer programming written by humans to fulfill its moves. It is a half machine, half human “monster” accompanying us in a virtual global digit world. Maybe it represents our lives in the future world. We may be able to sense, touch, smell, hear, and see what’s happening with our bodies, but think and create computer programming instead of our brains. Who are we in the future? There are only two possibilities, yes and no in the future. Maybe we are superhumans of weaken brains which will be substituted by machine learning in part or completely. We maybe also go back to primitive society with very developed bodies. Is there a state of superposition?
In one sunny day of June, I got a special package from the post office. I unwrapped it and found a normal digit chessboard like what we see in international tournaments. I often use it when my games are broadcasted online. When I am playing, I seem to be sensitive to tiny changes of positions in the Quchessboard, including complex positions and how to deal with them in my mind after 40 moves. I also gradually developed an ability of insight into opponents’ minds for identifying their each move and strategies. With the QuChessboord at my side, I am powerful; looking into my opponent’s minds and reading their strategies. With it, the games I’m playing is against myself.
“What happened to me?” my opponent wondered, bewildered, after one game. He reviewed his game with me and researched chess books in hope to win back. But next time, he lost with much worse disadvantages. I seemed to feel his great frustrations to be entangled with the magic of the Quchessboard. It seemed to be a quantum wave. I learned it in my physics class many years ago. My opponent frowned and continued to ponder his next move. He knew he would lose this game soon.
At the end of June, I accept in glee an invitation from Italy and travelled to a beautiful small town there. Delighted, I take the warm, balmy beach surround by tall, gleaming resorts. I hate cold weather.
I carried with my special Quchessboard, entering into the playing hall. After I sat, I glimpsed my opponent, a matured man with the age of 40 years old. He shivered. I smiled to him and put my Quchessboard into my bag. “Did you bring your chessboard?” I said. He put his chessboard on the table.
This was a very long time game. After seven hours, it finished with my losing. I’m happy with this result. I do not care about other people’s comments after I left for the beautiful beach with my whole family. I enjoy the nature of beauty and relaxed life.
