Lewandowski believes that such mutual self-binding fosters creativity: sparrers learn how to take immediate advantage of minor changes in the other’s behavior, and to avoid their own minor changes in behavior that allow the sparring partner to take a shot. Chris and Hercules, like other social players, are mutually self-binding, in that Chris’s actions set up the constraints on possible actions of Hercules, and Hercules’ actions set up the constraints on possible actions of Chris. This description nicely fits the description of what goes on during play: each player is striving to satisfy his or her project within the confines of the other player striving to satisfy his or her project, and vice versa.
