    Gurdjieff considered the capacity to play consciously the roles imposed by daily life to be a key to inner freedom, and he himself set the example with the fluency of a consummate actor. He almost never revealed himself to his pupils in all simplicity.

    "If we do not outwardly play a role, it is impossible not to be identified."

    If P, then it follows that Q.

    Condition: We do not outwardly play a role.
    Necessary Condition: If we don't do x (outwardly play a role)
    Outcome: It's clearly possible (for us) to be identified.
    Outcome: It's not possible y (not to be identified)

    As long as we do not outwardly play a role, we will be identified.
    We must outwardly play a role, if we are not to be identified.

    But the context seems to point to a different interpretation, so I think this may be a case of bad translation. I would want to read it in French to make sure what is really meant by this passage.

    "Not all interactions or transactions are part of a game. Specifically, if both parties in a one-on-one conversation remain in an Adult-to-Adult ego-state, it is unlikely that a game is being played."
