    ok Mr Martin, since you don't seem to know anything about religion, tell us, what is art? how does it differ from say a craft? or a skill? in fact, i just read your profile, i thought you did not listen to the opinions of others, are you mixed up? have changed or do not really know yourself?

    Art implies a personal, unanalyzable creative power.

    Skill stresses technical knowledge and proficiency.

    Craft may imply expertness in workmanship.

    Thank you for reading my profile. In response to your comment about not listening to others. I am mixed up or maybe changing I really don't know myself.

    yes its a skill, or yes its a technique or yes its free of error, for if the latter is the case, then , by definition, chess is not an art form.

    Of course it is! To know how to play chess is to know how to play life! Same goes for art. Statistically, pianists are better at multitasking than people who play no instrument or a single-staved instrument (the same goes for other multi-staved instrument players, and, I'm sure, conductors). Chess players are better at things like strategy and planning. All the same.
