    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.http://www.gurdjieff.org/lipsey1.htm

    "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.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
