Doesn't explain the Zen Swordsman.  Unless you want to say that by
detachment, one is dealing with one's emotions.  But maybe the Zen
Swordsman doesn't play a game?  I'm just leery of saying that
"emotion" is the common ground of all the things you listed.

20% of the world is real.
80% is gobbledygook we make up inside our own heads.
