Willard

I would add three to your list (almost as a sublist)

Communal
Convivial
Concrete

The remind me of the three Cs of Construttivisit Learning Theory

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constructivism_(philosophy_of_education)


Create - - Communicate - - Collaborate

Can be called up of down for a number of players. Can afford different
temporalities for each activity. Need not be goal-directed (i.e. free play, pure
research may (or may not) game the system)

to think is often to sort, to store and to shuffle: humble, embodied tasks
