Ping-pong in the round? Sounds like it might be easier in some ways and harder in others. Curved surfaces and unnatural angles might make for some unusual gyrations. But, it looks like they are adapting well! Sometimes that's what you have to do, adapt. Which reminds me of an old testament Bible I did recently...
2 Samuel, Chapter 10
6 When the children of Ammon saw that they were become odious to David, the children of Ammon sent and hired the Syrians of Beth Rehob, and the Syrians of Zobah, twenty thousand footmen, and the king of Maacah with one thousand men, and the men of Tob twelve thousand men. 7 When David heard of it, he sent Joab, and all the army of the mighty men. 8 The children of Ammon came out, and put the battle in array at the entrance of the gate: and the Syrians of Zobah and of Rehob, and the men of Tob and Maacah, were by themselves in the field. 9 Now when Joab saw that the battle was set against him before and behind, he chose of all the choice men of Israel, and put them in array against the Syrians: 10 The rest of the people he committed into the hand of Abishai his brother; and he put them in array against the children of Ammon. 11 He said, “If the Syrians are too strong for me, then you shall help me; but if the children of Ammon are too strong for you, then I will come and help you. 12 Be courageous, and let us be strong for our people, and for the cities of our God; and Yahweh do that which seems good to him.” 13 So Joab and the people who were with him drew near to the battle against the Syrians: and they fled before him. 14 When the children of Ammon saw that the Syrians had fled, they likewise fled before Abishai, and entered into the city. Then Joab returned from the children of Ammon, and came to Jerusalem. 15 When the Syrians saw that they were defeated by Israel, they gathered themselves together. 16 Hadadezer sent, and brought out the Syrians who were beyond the River: and they came to Helam, with Shobach the captain of the army of Hadadezer at their head. 17 It was told David; and he gathered all Israel together, and passed over the Jordan, and came to Helam. The Syrians set themselves in array against David, and fought with him. 18 The Syrians fled before Israel; and David killed of the Syrians seven hundred charioteers, and forty thousand horsemen, and struck Shobach the captain of their army, so that he died there. 19 When all the kings who were servants to Hadadezer saw that they were defeated before Israel, they made peace with Israel, and served them. So the Syrians feared to help the children of Ammon any more.
Strategic distribution of power based on need; very sophisticated leadership. In a time when there were no cellphones or walkie-talkies, there must have been some very clever organization to manage armies that were so large. But, they did it and did it well!! As Christians in the 21st century, we need to adapt to the spiritual battle before us to be victorious over the evil forces that oppose us. Let us use every technological advancement to spread the GOOD NEWS of a way to overcome sin. Whether it be something like this blog, or a spiritually emphasized website or a smart cellphone, let all be done for the glory of God and HIS son Jesus. Do this and you will be headed in the right direction. Only thing is... I don't know if it will be up or down...?
